Dream Casters Light

Mr. Sandman, send me a dream, ta da da da…..Seventeen year old
Chastity Blake knows the Sandman is just a silly children’s story parents tell their children to get them to sleep. At least she thought it was, until the day a mysterious, light golden sand appeared in her hands during a high school prank that went horribly wrong. A sand that has the power to send anyone it touches into a deep, sound sleep.

Fearing she had lost her mind, Chastity soon discovers the shocking
truth of her heritage – she is a Dream Caster. Chastity was never supposed to be raised on the Domain, or what humans call Earth and she is forced to return to her true birth place, Revera – the world of Dreams.

However, in Revera there is no balance between good, the Light
Casters, and darkness, the Shadow Casters, and Chastity is caught square in the middle. She soon learns that there is no place for anyone containing both the light and the darkness within them, and the shocking truth that if anyone in Revera ever discovered her shadow self, Chastity would be thrown into the Oblivion – the world of Nightmares.

Dreams are always more than they seem, and this time Chastity is
going to discover just how different they can be.
My Review
This book is a good start to this series. I like that it was different and refreshing form the typical "vampires, werewolves, zombies, and fairies" to name a few. Although I had a hard time getting a jump start on this book. I found myself slowly progressing through it in the beginning. For my it was not until about the third of the way into the book when the story really started and picked up in other words when Chastity was kidnapped. The world that the author built was cool. I liked learning about the different between a light and dark caster. There are some stumbling steps as Chastity learns and develops her talents. At times she really shows and acts her young age. Which was a good thing but also grew old too. The ending left a good lead up to book two.
