Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier

Dream a Little Dream (The Silver Trilogy) - Kerstin Gier, Anthea Bell

It's in dreams more than anywhere else that you get to know people best—along with all their weaknesses and their secret.

The Precious Stone Trilogy has been my favorite books since the first time I read them. And after reading this, Kerstin Gier is now officially one of my favorite authors. Her originality of making a fantasy in a contemporary world was really amazing. It was like reading The Chronicles of Narnia since she had doors to travel through time, and now through people dreams. I finished this book in one sitting until the sun rose.


This book was really good in so many aspect. Liv's character was really fun to read. She was sweet but at the same time snarky and sarcastic. Her perspective was so funny, especially when she started quoting Mr. Wu—her Kung Fu teacher—humored me a lot. Lottie and Her sister's character was also  very entertaining. The characters alone kept me awake all night

The mystery wasn't that strong, since it was somehow quite predictable. But, I still enjoyed the thrill it brought since I didn't prepare myself for a mystery either when I started this. Well, I read it in the middle of the night and at some point the book had the word "conjure" and "Anabel" in one sentence, and that reminded me of The Conjuring. Just the sentence though, not the story. XD


I wasn't really a fond of main character being surrounded by so many hot guys, which in this case there were four of them. It didn't feel real to me at all. I would like more variety in the boys' appearance. After all, this wasn't supposed to be a love triangle so I didn't think if there were a normal-looking boy would affect the main story so much.

The romance was sweet but was really far unfocused on. I was hoping to know more about Henry and his relationship with Liv, since there were so many question remained unanswered about Henry. There were something off about him that I can't put my finger on.


Overall, the story was really good. It was entertaining but still had the effect of mystery in it. I need the second book as soon as possible that's why I'm really mad at myself right now for not paying attention to German back in high school. Argh! I really can't wait any longer for the next installment to be translated to English.
