Series: Dreamkiller: The Complete Saga

Publication Date: December 2012
Reviewer: Amber I.

They call her the DreamKiller.
Silent, stealthy, and above all, accurate, as long as she carries out exactly what her dreams predict. Marlena Gormand kills to protect. Herself. Her way of life. The children at Little Hearts Orphanage. Until she learns these are not the reasons she’s been asked to kill. Not at all.
Azura Mkesky is the headmistress of Little Hearts Orphanage and the only parent-figure Marlena remembers. Azura taught Marlena everything she knows, from her combat skills to her unswerving loyalty to their cause. And Azura has always been there for her. But Azura has a secret. One that she’s used and manipulated Marlena and everyone else in order to protect.
Lukas Hristov knows Azura’s heart is dark—from both personal experience and the visions provided by his Sight. For too long, he’s stood aside while Azura’s reach of power and deception expands. When he can take it no longer and emerges from the shadows, he comes face to face with Marlena. For him, she is where it began. And she is where it ends. He is determined to make this right, to make her believe the truth.
And as the story unravels, Marlena begins to question whose secrets her dreams really protect.

I am so happy Heather put these novellas together because if I had to wait for each new book I might go crazy. Dreamkiller isn't my usual kinda read. While I love Urban Fantasy, mine usually have a bit of romance but Dreamkiller didn't really have that. Don't get me wrong I still liked it but just thought I would point that out.

Dreamkiller is about a bunch of supernaturals, each have their own unique power. Most of them work at an orphanage protecting other kids with powers. Marlena grew up at the orphanage and now as an adult she is a trained assassin. She gets these dreams and in these dreams she sees a threat and how to take care of them. But in comes Luke and she learns that everything she thought she knew is all a lie.

I really enjoyed the book. It is definitely a unique read. And even though its a shortie it still is action packed. Heather wrote the story so well that you don't feel like you are missing anything. I knew the whole story was leading to the big show down between Azura and Marlena and was happily anticipating that moment. And when we finally got to it, it sure delivered.

Overall Dreamkiller was a great read. I loved the characters and the world building. It was action packed and through in a few twists. If you are looking for a quick action packed read with a few unique supernaturals I would definitely suggest this book.
