Publisher's Summary

Perfect for fans of Frewin Jones' The Faerie Path and Aprilynne Pike's Wings series!

Have you ever learned a secret about yourself that could change your life forever?

When a mysterious and handsome boy showed up at my high school, all the girls wanted his attention. But who did he approach? Plain, less-than-ordinary me!

Words like changeling and dreamseer made my head spin as Declan, who claims to be my protector, tried to convince me that I’m actually a creature from the faerie realm, switched at birth with a human infant who is the true child of my parents.

Should I follow Declan's lead to discover the truth? How can I not?

Stunning

I loved this book, the narrator and all the beautiful characters. I wish this story was longer and didn't end with a cliffhanger!

Have you ever felt some things just aren't right?

Hope is a beautiful name that inspires the readers and characters to want more and believes there is more than just existing. Hope is a target for bullies until Declan arrives and changes her life.

I can't wait for the next book!

A Truly Enjoyable Series

This series is about the hidden depths in all of us and about choosing love.
I like Hope. I found her plight believable. Many times those that are bullied can’t easily find that help that they crave. (Bureaucracy is often the unseen big bad in this fight.)
Hope’s gentle spirit and her openness are what make her impressive. She is not looking for a knight in shining armor, but she doesn’t let others set her sense of self worth. She isn’t self-sabotaging.
This series starter didn’t get into the idea of faeries as much as I would have liked, but it did have my mind spinning possibilities for Hope.
As I write this review, I should note that I have already finished the whole series; and I got a review copy of the audiobook. Kashner did an excellent job of narrating this story. A great narrator can make a good book great. I felt that this book was great though it did cross my mind that I could tell that Lavenza had grown as an author between this series and the Heir of Prophecy series.

a little slow

I liked the idea of the story, even though I have read several books about a girl who is a loner at school and then all of a sudden a hot boy takes her away and tells her she is beautiful and important and not human. The thing is, most of the book takes place at high school where they met and I thought it took way too long to answer what was going on. The book doesn't answer most of the questions about what is happening and that was frustrating. The narrator did a good job and it was enjoyable to listen to while I was cleaning the house, I just think this whole book needed to move along in the storyline faster. I will keep listening to the series so I hope the next book moves a little faster and my questions are answered.

So so

I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for a review. I felt like I had already heard this story in other books. This is my YA and not my thing. Was going to dnf but I felt like I owed the author the listen.

Interesting

The Shadow of a Dream is an interesting story and I enjoyed the detailed and vivid descriptions. It ended very abruptly with a cliffhanger and was unfinished. The narrator did a nice job.

The Shadow of a Dream

Such an interesting and fun beginning to this series. We get some answers but I have so many questions that I must know what is to happen next. Very interesting for a YA to adult.

The Shadow of a Dream

I really enjoyed this book. It was very interesting that the MC could not touch people. I liked when Declan showed up to try and convince her to go with him to learn about what she really is. Really interested in seeing where the next part of this story takes us.
