Review: The Dream Crystal (The Dream War Series, #1) by Mark O'Bannon

3 Stars
The Dream Crystal
Series: The Dream War Series
Author: Mark O'Bannon
Pages: 339
In this novel we meet Aisling, who finds out, after a series of events that she is a faerie changeling.

Along with this comes the knowledge that she has a 'sister', well the girl she was exchanged with, and she decided to find her but soon learns that she has been taken by the Shadow People.

I think that is secondary plot, though I am still not positive. As the name we also have the plot about the actual Dream Crystal about which the book is named. We get three worlds in this novel-- the human world I guess, the shadow world and the land of dreams, which is where all the fairies live.

We meet a lot of interesting people from all three among them are, Genevieve a human and Aisling's best friend. Eileen, a faerie. Ith, the shadow king.

One of the reasons this novel only gets three stars was because of several little things that bothered me. It was nothing that affected the story as a whole but did cause a slow pace at times.

Example: There were many character in the book and while some such as Aisling, Erin and Elaine was easy to remember we get a lot of other characters, mostly male now that I think back on it, that I couldn't really keep straight.

Above is a very vague premiss of what this book is about I would try to give a more in-depth one but just do not think it is possible without giving everything away.

When it came down to it I find I could not love Aisling, like her yes, but not love her. She just seemed slightly artificial to me and kind of a tease if you will. Also, I never felt a very strong connection with her, which is strange as the novel is only her POV.

Altogether I really did like the novel and think it is a good first book and look forward to see more in the series.

I would recommend this novel to anyone interested in a novel about fairies or a slightly long fantasy.

*I received an Ebook copy of this book for free to review from the author.
