Welcome to our Blog Tour "Review Day Blitz" stop on "Dreamwalker". Brought to you by the lovely ladies at Innovative Online Book Tours. Here you can read the the author's bio, book's synopsis,  and the my review of "Dreamwalker" by Andrea Heltsley.

Author Bio

I am a biology nerd who loves reading just about anything paranormal and some chick lit. I enjoy sunshine and my two Italian greyhounds with my husband.  I always write to music, it helps the creative process.  Dissolve is my first novel. I have been writing ever since I was in grade school and have finally decided to make a career out of it. More books to come summer 2012 and 2013.

 Dreamwalker
(Persephone's League of Immortals #1)
Publishing Date: 5/23/12

Description:
Noel Kennedy lost her boyfriend, her job and her dignity all in one week.  Then something happened and she began to dream of this stranger she had never met.  She couldn’t resist the man of her dreams named Jared especially when she met him in real life.  Entranced, she slowly unraveled a world she was meant to stay out of.  Her life was not what she thought it was once a sexy Boone stepped into the mix and shook things up.  Can she escape a life of servitude or immortality for a chance at love?

My eyes fluttered open and I saw something magical.  I was lying on the ground next to Jared, my legs folded up, boots resting flat on the ground.  I turned my head to the side, looked into his eyes and he smiled. 
All around us, the tall green grass was mixed with red tulips tinged with silver and the field was whispering in the wind.  A large white moon hung in the deep purple sky.  I turned to peer into those smoky eyes that had me at hello.
“What is this place?  It’s truly amazing.  I have never seen anything like it.”
He smiled and just answered with a simple reply, “our wonderland.”
Then I gasped as Jared entwined his hand with mine and a shooting star came into view.  The star seemed so close it appeared three-dimensional and was emitting a shower of stardust in its wake.  Shimmering embers and sparkling bits surround us as I stared in awe.

 My Review
I was a little skeptical reading this book at first because I thought it would not capture my attention....but now I'm looking forward to the second book.  That should tell you, that I really enjoyed this book.  
It's much different from any other paranormal romance book out there.   
Noel has just been dumped by her boyfriend, and now she's taking it pretty badly.  Let's just say she lost her job over the break up because she did not show up to work.  Now Noel is having dreams of a boy that is invading her dreams.  She knows something is different about him.
The boy is now telling her that he should have never involved her because now she's being hunted down by a unknown world she had no idea existed.  (witches, vampires, etc....)
And she's one of them...but she's different and she's about to find out what she is from the boy in her dreams and from close friends who have been keeping an eye on her.
Noel is now on the run with other supernaturals just like her...one being her best friend and another being her dream boy's partner who has an interest in Noel.
What is a girl to do with two boys?  
My thoughts on "Dreamwalker" was that it was a very interesting book to read.  Like I stated before, I was skeptical at first...until it got really steamy in certain parts and I understood the storyline a little more.  
Just a warning:  There's a love triangle in "Dreamwalker".  Sometimes I always lean towards one boy...but this book, I had a hard time choosing because I love them both.
The only thing that bothered me was Noel.  It really was just the beginning that I did not like her character, but that's because she ran into hiding once she was dumped by her boyfriend.  Towards the end of the book though, she was one strong-willed character who kicked butt.  
I will not spoil the book and what it is about...because I will give too much away.  
There were times that the book was slow a bit...but than it picked up and surprised me.  
I love Andrea Heltsley's writing style because it is WAY different from others.  She takes you into another world of paranormal.  
Now that I've had the chance to read this book from Andrea, I plan on reading her other book "Dissolve" when I get some free time this summer.
