Dark. Mysterious. Sensual. When Bronse Chapel, the commander of a specialized unit of the Interplanetary Militia, begins to dream about a beautiful and exotic brunette, he wants to dismiss it as being induced by lack of sleep ... or perhaps lack of sex. But his instincts tell him it's something different, something far more dangerous. Ravenna is the leader of the Chosen Ones, a small group of people from her village born with extraordinary powers. She doesn't know what draws her to Bronse's dreams night after night, but she senses that he and his team are in jeopardy. Ravenna can help him, but first Bronse must save the Chosen Ones from those who plan to use their powers for evil. Together, Bronse and Ravenna will be unstoppable. But Ravenna is hiding something that could endanger them all.

"Frank's world is intriguing." (Publishers Weekly)
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
Modern day military meets mysticism. Science vs. Magic.
Can they co-exist? Can they be integrated? These are questions I hope that will be answered in following books.
The story was interesting, the fact that someone can communicate with another person through dreams. What a novel idea eh! Not at all, but it set up the story nicely. A trek through the jungle avoiding the bad guys, and dangerous animals. An easy listen/read and thoroughly enjoyable.
Nice book to lay on the chaise by the pool and listen to, or the beach.
Ancient meets Space-aged
None. It was unique.
Magical, Psychic, Military, Lust, Love, Rescue
This was a pretty imaginative story. I think it was well done.
There is probably a pleasant little plot in this novel. Psy female needing rescue reaches out to military man . Military man and crew come to her rescue, and save her psy family as well. Obstacles are placed in their way. Love blossoms. But someone needs to take Ms Frank's Thesaurus away. Not every verb or noun needs an adverb or adjective. No, really. Sighs are delicious; wriggles are saucy; cries are feminine; air is wilderness cold, and on and on and on. When reading, you can skip over the overblown prose, but listening lets you be tortured by every unnecessary modifier. The reader does fine until she tries a mutilated Australian accent for the heroine and her family. Ugh.
Expected nothing less from the Author, I have enjoyed reading/listening many of her books and enjoyed everyone of the.
Excellent narration by her that pulls you into the story
The title made me think of an imaginary relationship. I enjoyed the setting of the story. I enjoyed the Sci-fi aspect. I wonder if the other books continue the story. . .
I listened to the Nightwalkers Series and loved them. I then read The Bid, which by the way is an excellent book. I choose to start the Three Worlds Series and was a little disappointed by the lack of sensuality that the other books had but the book still held my attention and ended up being a good read. I enjoyed the story of the two worlds colliding together and the promise of fighting togther for a joint cause.
It was not as exciting and interesting as her other book series
be more in to the book it almost sounded monotone
I usually love Jacquely Frank books but this one had a poor storyline and did come close to the quality level of her other work.
