This well written and narrated audiobook is excellent. It tells the story of Ren Lewis, a dream traveller who was born with amazing gifts, but instead of seeing them as a beautiful thing he sees them as making him a monster. It is not so much the gifts themselves but rather his abuse of his ability to read thoughts, hypnotize and control minds that causes him to view himself as such. This book details the story of his life and what made him the sarcastic, apathetic, abrasive and yet totally appealing character that he is. It chronicles Ren's misuse of his powers, his mistakes, sorrows and the contacts and actions that cause him to change. I loved how the author tied in all her other series and filled out the details about Ren that were missing in the other books and yet she didn't give too much away for those who haven't read them yet. Ren is my favourite character in all of Sarah Noffke's books. He is complex, tortured, a jerk and yet you can not help but love him. His dry sarcastic humour and underlying loneliness and despair draws you to him, your heart bleeds for his losses and pain but at the same time you want to shake him and make him realize that he has worth and is not the monster he thinks he is. Tim Campbell's narration fits this character perfectly. His deep, gritty voice and correct British accent (even down to the pronunciation of words that are said differently in England) brings the character to life and reveals that underlying sexiness that is so appealing in this character. The Dream Traveller world that Sarah Noffke has created in her books is intricate and captivating and this story continues to add depth to an already amazing world. I can not wait until the next audiobook in this series is out.
