Recensione

Exciting, mysterious, and at times utterly chilling, DREAMS will draw you into its spell. --Giles Kristian

I really enjoyed this book! Sacerdoti has cleverly set the stage for the sequel and I for one can't wait to get my hands on it! (4/5) --Midnight Reads

Both romantic and chilling, this is every bit as dark as the name 'Sarah Midnight' suggests; an intense and gripping tale of demons, magic, betrayal and love. --H. M. Castor

Sinossi

Seventeen-year-old Sarah Midnight has never had a normal life. To the outside world she is a typical teenager, but on the inside, Sarah holds an unimaginable secret. Her parents are demon hunters, part of a web of Secret Families who have sworn to protect the world. But when they are mysteriously killed, Sarah's world is shattered but she knows she must now take up their fight. Unprepared for the task ahead, she finds herself thrust into a world of incredible danger, full of things she never even knew existed. Including her enigmatic long-lost cousin who, out of the blue, turns up on her doorstep just when she needs him most. He claims to be there to help and protect her, but how will she know who to trust in this perilous new life? And can she stay alive long enough to complete her parents' quest when they have left her so defenceless? Sarah has to learn, and learn fast - the demons are all around her and death waits for no one...

Leggere le avventure di Sarah Midnight è come cadere in un vortice nel quale hai la possibilità di conoscere prima dei personaggi stessi cosa accadrà, ma rimanere abbastanza sorpresa quando le tue aspettative vengono piacevolmente capovolte. Imprevedibile, interessante e coinvolgente. Ma partiamo dal principio.
Lo scenario si apre su un funerale, quello dei genitori di Sarah, morti in circostanze misteriose, almeno per la gente comune. La ragazza sa infatti che ad ucciderli sono stati dei demoni, visto che Anne e James Midnight erano tutt’altro che persone ordinarie: erano cacciatori di demoni, da una lunga generazione. E Sarah, nonostante abbia vissuto l’occupazione principale dei genitori al sicuro nella sua casa, ha un terribile dono – o forse sarebbe meglio dire maledizione – che le permette, nei suoi sogni, di vedere prima che accadano eventi che coinvolgono questi esseri malvagi. I sogni di Sarah hanno guidato per anni la caccia dei suoi genitori, quell’occupazione che è costata loro la vita. Ora la ragazza, appena diciassettenne, si trova a raccogliere un’eredità per la quale non è stata addestrata. Fin dall’inizio si evince non solo il suo dolore, ma anche il disagio causato dal ritenersi meno importante della “caccia”, del far sembrare la sua vita normale, come quella di tutti gli altri. È abituata a fare tutto in modo perfetto, dall’abbigliamento alle faccende di casa, perché è convinta che la ritualità sia l’unica cosa che farà tornare ogni giorno i genitori a casa. Ma ovviamente non è così.

I just couldn't put this book down and was so intrigued I also read the sequels. I just love the way the story transports you to another world and into the lives of Sarah and her companions. A very good read indeed.

5.0 su 5 stelle So intriguing! 26 ottobre 2012
Di V Family Fun - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
I bought this book after reading some good reviews for it, the blurb sounded interesting so I thought I'd give it a go.

It took me a little while to follow what was going on as there was so much information to take in at the beginning, I soon fell into the storyline though particularly once I learned the reason for Sarah's parents being killed - this was a turning point for me.

The whole idea is very imaginative and as I was reading I felt a sense of urgency and extreme danger. The demons were scary and I couldn't imagine how Sarah would ever survive an attack from them.

Sarah had clearly had a difficult upbringing and reading about her obsessiveness with cleaning and tidying made my heart break for her, she seemed incredibly lost so when Harry came into her life it was nice to see someone caring for her. Harry was a lovely character although I knew the secrets he was keeping from Sarah would cause problems, at one point I was yelling at the book because I just wanted him to tell her!

When the mysterious Leaf was introduced I came up with all sorts of ideas as to who he was, I got the feeling that he wasn't trustworthy but some of his actions made me question those feelings so I still feel unsure about him.

Throughout the book the characters had inner thoughts and I loved this side of it because I'm a very nosy person and I always like to know what isn't being said.

As the book progressed Sarah became much stronger and I enjoyed seeing this change in her, after a fantastic cliffhanger ending I look forward to seeing if her strength continues into the next book!

This was a dark and at times scary book which thoroughly intrigued me.

5.0 su 5 stelle Book Whales: Dreams will satisfy your thirst for adventure, mystery and paranormal cravings. 7 giugno 2012
Di Book Whales - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

"Don't let them roam"

The first time I saw Dreams on Goodreads. I was captured by the cover. The girl with dark hair in a seemingly dreamy state, made me want to read this book. Not only is the cover beautiful but the story as well. Dreams will satisfy your thirst for adventure, mystery and paranormal cravings.

The story is about Sarah Midnight, an orphan who was suddenly thrust into a world full of secrets and danger. She has a special power called "The dark water" and she has dreams that foretell what will happen in the future. Her dreams come true and are plagued by demons. She was forced to fight off evil without proper training due to her sheltered life. Harry, her long lost cousins suddenly appeared to help her. Together, the two aid each other in defeating the demons. Who is that pale boy that visits her dreams? Will she be able to fulfill her promise to her parents to protect the world against evil? You have to read this book to find out.

The world building is astonishing! It is dark themed. I love how the author vividly describes the "Dark Water" and the demons. I didn't have a hard time picturing them in my head. I find the book very cinematic. I wouldn't be surprised if this book will be turned into a comic. I enjoyed the graphical descriptions and the scenarios that made my heart pumped fast. The pacing is good too! There were no dull moments there. The author also has the talent to keep the readers engrossed. I literally wanted to squeeze the book for answers. Who is Leaf? Why does Sarah feel connected to him? I really can't wait to read book three.

The characters are interesting and well made. Each of them has their own individuality. I connected to them easily since they are very realistic. They were also described pretty well. Sarah is my favorite character in this book. Her parents had died, yet I find her strong and courageous. Her parent's death did not hinder her to her responsibilities; despite the fact that she was not given proper training to handle her gifts. Her stubbornness and flaws made me like her more. As for the handsome Harry, I also find him likable. I love his personality and his drive to take care of Sarah. His commitment to his job as a gamekeeper awed me. I find him interesting and old fashioned. The fact that he likes teas and soap operas made me laugh. The story is written in different POVs. You get to see what happened in the past and what each character are thinking. I like how I see the story in a transparent way. No more guessing what each of them are really thinking. There are more characters in the story that I like. I will leave them to you to find out.

As for the love angle, Daniela did a great job. I was torn between Harry and Leaf! There were loads of scenes that gave butterflies in my stomach. The very dedicated Harry and dependable Leaf -sigh- It is hard to decide between two hot guys.

Overall, this book is an excellent read. I recommend this book to action and paranormal lovers. A great read for a first time author. I will definitely keep an eye on this series.

**WARNING: CONTAINS MILD SPOILERS**

This is quite a tough review to write because my head knows that this one is an easy three stars, but at the same time, it's difficult to figure out why.

I mean, there were a lot of issues that ensured I struggled with the book for quite a while.

Like the POV's used--the omni stalled me from connecting with the characters for a seriously big chunk of the book, and also gave me motion sickness with head hopping from one person to the next and back in a matter of sentences.

Or the multiple POV's where it switched to 1st person present--the fact this began happening so early in the book means the reader is introduced to a lot of characters in a short space of time and it was very hard to keep track of who was who as well as trying to figure out the importance/relevance of each character we were introduced to.

Or the pacing--because the first 50% of this book seemed incredibly slow.

But, I still somehow enjoyed the read--despite the fact I'd have preferred if the author had chosen 3rd person limited, or the fact I didn't click that quickly with the writing style and it had to gradually grow on me throughout the book, or the fact that the topic of fighting demons isn't exactly original.

But then, in all fairness, the author did put an original spin on the demon hunting angle, and she did eventually get me to care about the characters, and she did get me to smile when Harry finally kissed Sarah, and she did get me to frown when he got outed and to feel his pain when Sarah rejected him, and to feel angered when Leaf wormed his way in, and to want to read on to discover what on earth's going to happen next.

So, despite it taking a little while to get my attention--because it took me almost 3 days to read the 1st half, and only hours for the final 50%--I suppose I have to concede that the author has won me over. So, when's book 2 out then?

1.0 su 5 stelle Disappointing and boring 24 maggio 2012
Di NatasaLikes - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
This story had a lot of potential but turned out to be another goopy mess of angst-ridden romance disguised as YA fantasy. When I first heard of this book, it sounded a lot like Supernatural, except the protagonist is a girl. Since I'm a fan of the show, I was all, cool! This sounds really good! I really want to read this! The cover is pretty awesome, too.

Most promising was the summary which never even hinted at a love interest, giving me hope that it was going to be all about Sarah Midnight kicking ass, flaunting girl POWAH and being awesome in general.

The first scene was pretty cool! I liked it! Sarah Midnight used some awesum speshul powers and seemed badass. Kind of. I was somewhat discouraged by the crappy writing style but, you know, crappy writing doesn't always merit a bad story. Most of the time. Right?

In retrospect, all I have to say to myself is that I'm an idiot.

Then the love interest, Harry, made an appearance and I forgot the crappy writing because I was all fangirling over him. He has a deep and tragic past, of course. Hot guys in YA lit always come with that because apparently it merits an insightful and considerate character. It just wouldn't do to have a scorching hot guy be as shallow as a pond, would it?

Imagine my surprise! and disappointment! when Harry takes a page out of the Sucky Paranormal YA Handbook and begins to stalk Sarah from point A to B to C to D to E to... well, you know how the alphabet works (to quote Katherine from TVD, who is a real badass).

Dear Harry, if you were 10 on the scale of hotness, you just plummeted to -10.

His reason for doing this is to protect Sarah from the scary little demons that want to kill her; apparently she doesn't actually know how to protect herself because her parents never taught her how. You guys, that's totes badass! It means even without any training she was still able to kill that demon in the first scene! That is so cool!

So in short, the story uses Sarah's supposed inexperience as a lame plot device in order to have Harry hang around her all Edward-like creepy stalker style. It's a poor excuse because as we saw in the first scene, Sarah is more than capable of taking care of herself.

Of course, she does let him follow her around. Everywhere. Literally. To shopping, to school, to her house, bathroom, basement, kitchen, living room, bedroom... (though they never actually do the deed. Thank goodness.) Oh well, I guess that's normal enough behavior in books these days.

I think the fact that she doesn't tell Harry to get the heck out of her life says something about Sarah's character as well, don't you think?

Then comes the part where the plot vanishes and the romance invades with REINFORCEMENTS! What kind of reinforcements, you ask? Well, for one Sarah and Harry are supposed to be first cousins, so if they get together it would actually be some form of incest, but only Harry knows he's not really Sarah's cousin because the real Harry got killed by the eeeeeviiillll people who are in league with the little demons. But before he died, he gave Sean (Fake Harry's real name) the speshul task of protecting Sarah so she doesn't die the same way.

Naturally, Fake Harry develops feelings for Sarah and so does she, but both are unable to act on them because you know, there's the whole (fake) incest thing.

Of course, Fake Harry could just tell her Real Harry is dead, but that would remove all the angst and the forbidden love angle and that would make things. Really. Boring. So for roughly 65% of the book we get to watch Sarah and Fake Harry tiptoe around each other in a melodramatic dance of soap-opera-like proportions.

All wrapped up in a neat little package of really. Bad. Writing.

Sigh.

Oh, wey, there's also another boy. Another love interest. Another love triangle. *facepalm*

Somewhere along the way Sarah completely shucks off her badassness as if it's some kind of disease to her femininity (I've come to realize she was never truly a badass in the first place) and becomes a dopey little thing that faints far too many times for my liking, for no other reason I can see other than to have Fake Harry stare at her and worry over her in his Edwardian-creeper style.

You see, I've finally figured out the point of Sarah. She's supposed to be one of those heroines with SUPAH AWESUM SPESHUL POWERZ who is a bastion for everything good and pure and who can vanquish anyone and anything if they get in the way of the greater good. Only, those powers mysteriously disappear as soon as Prince Charming enters the picture and the heroine transforms into a star-struck airhead whose sole purpose of existence is to have that hunk of man meat assert his possessiveness over her.

In short, she's weak and useless and stupid and an insult to girls everywhere. Are the girls who are like Sarah supposed to be role models? As a teenager, am I supposed to like reading about this kind of heroine? Is this archetype supposed to be something I aspire to become?

My answer: no.

In other news...

What's that? Is it a bird? Is it an airplane?

No, it's the PLOT! Long time no see, buddy.

Because it had the definitive air of being stuffed in there at the last minute, the plot is rushed, weird and filled with WTF and LOL moments. Prime example: Fake Harry's identity gets outed by Sarah's arch-nemesis and Sarah, living up to the TSTL label, chooses to cut all ties with him. Good riddance, I say, because he's a positive creep. Still, her decision makes me want to bang my head against the wall because instead of taking a beat to think about the fact that despite Harry's creep factor, his loyalty is unquestionable. But she chooses instead to take her arch-nemesis' word at face value that he murdered Real Harry.

TSTL indeed.

Anyway. Since I was so close to the end, I decided I might as well finish it so I kind of just went along with it. At this point I was beyond caring. In short, Dreams comprises of the formulaic storyline behind the majority of sucky paranormal YA: love triangle + ridiculous characters + lots of angst + suckily explained magic + barely there plot = instant success!

I have no idea why I didn't DNF this. To be honest, though, this story wouldn't be so ridiculous if it had been written in such a way that I didn't feel like LOLing every other page. That, at least, might have raised it from a one-star to a two-star rating.

And... yeah. That concludes most of my feelings on the subject of this abomination. After all that negativity you might think me strange for wanting to pick up the sequel, but I still think this series has the potential to redeem itself--somewhat. If Fake Harry/Sean can get over his stalkerish tendencies and the plot can make an effort to assert itself more strongly and the writing can improve just a tiny teensy bit and Sarah realizes she can be both feminine and badass... well, this might just have a chance.

Holy moly, I just realized how insanely impossible that list of demands is. Hmm, yeah, no, I've changed my mind. Definitely not reading the sequel.

5.0 su 5 stelle Couldn't put the book down! A great dark fictitious novel. 1 maggio 2012
Di A4lan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Dreams, part one of the Trilogy by Daniela Sacerdoti is a gothic exploration of Sarah Midnight's not-so-normal teenage life, filled with mystery and secrecy; a lot like a demonic version of Twilight or Buffy the vampire slayer. Sacerdoti allows her imagination to run wild as she creates an intense, chilling thriller, ideal for anyone over the age of thirteen who enjoys escapism and daydreaming - with a twist. The fact is, `to the outside world she is a typical teenager' and this makes the book even more interesting, hasn't everybody considered a hidden world where magic and demons exist? With difficulty putting Dreams down, I very much look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy!
