Dream Come True

I have been patiently awaiting the audio release of Dreams Made Flesh. Even though I've read the book, I looked forward to listening to the stories that tie the trilogy together. I'm very glad that Mr.Sherian reverted back to the voice we were used to hearing when he portrayed Jaenelle. In Tangled Webs he made her sound like Morgan - she had a Celtic lilt to her voice. Listening also helps me focus on parts that I somehow missed while reading. I love the worlds of Kaaleer, Ebon Askavi and the other realms and can't wait until Twilight's Dawn is released.

My absolute favorite book in the series

What made the experience of listening to Dreams Made Flesh the most enjoyable?

I've read every single one of these books before. The hardest part is being a full time student and mother to two VERY active youngsters. So, being about to sit down and crochet or sew in the evening, and listening to a favorite story (during those precious few hours you get just after the kids go to sleep) has made it so much better than reading the actual books.

What other book might you compare Dreams Made Flesh to and why?

Dreams Made Flesh >= Twilight's Dawn
(Another book of short stories involving the same characters and their lives after the events of the orginal trilogy.)

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't have a favorite 'scene.' My favorite story is the one where Lucivar and Marian met.
(My absolute favorite love story of all time!)

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The first time I read it... YES!!!!!

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend the entire series.

Dreams Made Flesh is one of the Best books...

I've listened to on audible. I absolutely love this series. The narrator is excellent. The writing captivating and exciting. The storyline is romantic without being sappy. I love the flawed, angry, human characters as well as the worlds that Anne Bishop creates where the plots always thicken.

Anne Bishops Masterpiece continues

More stories of the SaDiablo family. Lucivar and Mariam get to know each other, Sataen's history, and Jannelle and Daemon after she awakens from the healing webs. 💖
