The Dream Crystal by Mark O'Bannon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
All of the world's dreams are about to die. The Shadow People have come. Always near, they linger in the darkness, ready to devour dreams, hopes, aspirations and desires. . .
Aisling, having lost her dream of becoming a fashion designer, learns that she's a Faerie changeling. Disquieted by the fact that her faerie parents are kidnappers, she has decided to rescue the human child she was exchanged for, but her "sister" is no longer among the faeries, having been taken by the Shadow People. Ith, the Lord of Shadows, is trying to control the dreams of mankind, which are under the protection of the faeries, so they're at war.
Aisling, who doesn't believe in dreams any longer, is falling in love with a handsome, mysterious stranger - one of the Shadow People.
Hmmm...it seems fairies are the new thing and for that, this book if right on. This is the story of a girl who is going to fashion designer school and finds out that she was switched at birth and is actually a fairy. The story is pretty good, except that the descriptions of what every character is wearing in each scene was a little distracting. It also seemed to go round and round in circles a bit in places. There were good guys and bad guys but sometimes the good guys seemed bad and the bad guys seemed good. A little confusing. Anyway, I was honored to be asked to review it, but I probably won't read the sequel. Sorry, Mark.
