Just Dreaming (The Silver Trilogy #3), by Kerstin Gier

Publish Date: October 8, 2015 (audiobook published May 2, 2017)
Published by: Macmillan Audio
Translated to English by: Anthea Bell
Narrated by: Marisa Calin
Pages: 349 (approx. 10 1/2 hrs)
Genre: YA Paranormal
My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4.5 out of 5 stars)


Synopsis:

The course of dream travel never did run smooth—at least, not in Liv Silver’s experience. Able to visit other people’s dreams (whether they want her to or not), Liv has solved mysteries, unearthed difficult truths, fought madmen, and escaped life-threatening peril, all from the comfort of her own bed. But Liv’s troubles are just beginning…

A rocky romance, a malicious blogger with a hidden identity, a wedding, and a classmate (or two) dead-set on revenge all await Liv in this action-packed conclusion to the Silver trilogy.


My Review:

This was definitely a great ending to such a fun trilogy! I very much enjoyed listening to these audiobooks. Gier has such a way of pulling me into the story so easily and filling it with such interesting ideas and fun characters that I can’t help but falling in love.

Dream On (The Silver Trilogy #2), by Kerstin Gier

Publish Date: June 26, 2014 (audiobook published June 21, 2016)
Published by: Macmillan Audio
Translated to English by: Anthea Bell
Narrated by: Marisa Calin
Pages: 317 (approx. 10 hrs)
Genre: YA Paranormal
My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4 out of 5 stars)


Synopsis:

Things seem to be going well for Liv Silver: she’s adjusting to her new home (and her new family) in London; she has a burgeoning romance with Henry Harper, one of the cutest boys in school; and the girl who’s been turning her dreams into nightmares, Anabel, is now locked up. But serenity doesn’t last for long.

It seems that Liv’s troubles are far from over–in fact, suddenly they’re piling up. School gossip blogger Secrecy knows all of Liv’s most intimate secrets, Henry might be hiding something from her, and at night Liv senses a dark presence following her through the corridors of the dream world. Does someone have a score to settle with Liv?


My Review:

I enjoyed this one just as much as the first one, although I did feel in the beginning that Liv wasn’t as Little-Miss-Nancy-Drew as she claimed to be. There were just a lot of clues and things that she didn’t seem to pick up on, and it was getting a little annoying. Towards the end she got better, but with focus being on other things it didn’t really matter much then, anyway.  Continue reading “Book Review | DREAM ON, by Kerstin Gier”

Dream a Little Dream (The Silver Trilogy #1), by Kerstin Gier

Publish Date: March 8, 2013 (audiobook published April 14, 2015)
Published by: Macmillan Audio
Translated to English by: Anthea Bell
Narrated by: Marisa Calin
Pages: 319 (approx. 10 hrs)
Genre: YA Paranormal
My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4.5 out of 5 stars)


Synopsis:

Mysterious doors with lizard-head knobs. Talking stone statues. A crazy girl with a hatchet. Yes, Liv’s dreams have been pretty weird lately. Especially the one where she’s in a graveyard at night, watching four boys conduct dark magic rituals.

The strangest part is that Liv recognizes the boys in her dream. They’re classmates from her new school in London, the school where she’s starting over because her mom has moved them to a new country (again). But what’s really scaring Liv is that the dream boys seem to know things about her in real life, things they couldn’t possibly know–unless they actually are in her dreams? Luckily, Liv never could resist a good mystery, and all four of those boys are pretty cute….


My Review:

So after being completely sucked into the Ruby Red trilogy by Kerstin Gier, I knew I had to continue with her work in Dream a Little Dream. And from the description alone it was already giving me some Raven Boys vibes, so I was excited to get into it. And it definitely did not disappoint.
