The Nightmare Affair

"Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she’s a criminal. No, she’s a Nightmare.


Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother’s infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker’s house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He’s hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn’t get much more embarrassing. But it does. Eli is dreaming of a murder.

Then Eli’s dream comes true.

Now Dusty has to follow the clues—both within Eli’s dreams and out of them—to stop the killer before more people turn up dead. And before the killer learns what she’s up to and marks her as the next target."

So, here is the deal. Throughout this story I had 2 feelings about this book. One being, this is really mediocre and obvious and the other being "wow, this is some great writing". I think the idea although, pretty original in general was just overdone. The whole magical boarding school thing, just bored me. Although, there were times where I was intrigued. I mainly found myself scanning through the book to get the gist of the story. I'd personally tell you, to pass on this book.
