This book is the sequel to Pleasures of the Night and is the second book of the Dream Guardians series by Sylvia Day. You can read my review of that book Here.
Before I even start the review I will say this, and I know I’ve said this before;
Sylvia Day, you are so much better than this! Now this has gotten to a point where I will keep reading and reviewing her books so I can prove how great they can be. This is my new mission^^

Story:

”Welcome to the Twilight—where dreams are real—as are Nightmares. Where Guardians fight with glaives against the darkness, protecting humanity from the shadowed enemy that feeds on their deepest fears. They’ve become phantasms, taking on the form and nuances of each individual subconscious they protect”

Sylvia Day

Now things are getting interesting, sort of. I did not enjoy the plot in the first book as much as I could have if the book was longer and more detailed, so now with the second book I got a bit more of what I wanted. But there still was not enough pages devoted to the plot and explanation of the worlds. Maybe I have to high of a standard with Adult Paranormal Romance, but this could be so much more intriguing if lust and sex was toned down a bit.

Characters:
Stacey: Girl got real spunk. I liked her in the first book and it was nice to get to know her better.
Connor: When I try and write about him, all the comes upon is that he seems like an annoying but sweet younger brother. And he’s such a guys-guy. Dude makes me want to say ”’Sup bro!?”.
Aidan and Lyssa
: The main characters from the first book is more fun to read about as a side story. And their relationship to the new pairing is actually quite sweet.

Romance/Hotness:
One word, silly. They have some good banter and small moments that could create a connection, but not enough time.
Here’s the relationship in short: Bow-chicka-wow-wow — Go away! — Bake a pie — bow-chicka-wow-wow x3 — You crazy! — I love you.
All in 246 pages. Did I buy it? Nah..
They managed to cramp in way to much bed-action.. A real humporama! No build-up but just straight to business.. In short, I closed the book and went; ”Well, that escalated quickly.”

Conclusion:
This book got a bit more meat on its bones and was a bit more fun than the first book so it will get 3,5 stars. If you put the two books together you’ll might end up with one decent first book. But the writing does not have me panting for the next one. And speaking of the next book;
I feel sad. The series just got a little better and there is no set time for book 3, if there even will be one. This has happened a lot with Sylvia Days books due to her not working with publishers to the series anymore. One example of this is the Renegade Angels series with I really liked! But no book 3 in sight.. So don’t read that if you can’t handle a bit of torture.
