From Author’s Website:

She was only twelve when she saw the silver boy on the beach, but Jenny has never stopped dreaming about him. Now she is grown, a marine biologist charting her own course in the family business—a corporation that covertly crosses the boundaries of science into realms of the unknown…and the incredible.

And now he has found her again, her silver boy grown into a man: Perrin, powerful and masculine, and so much more than human—leaving Jenny weak with desire and aching for his touch.

But with their reunion comes mortal danger—from malevolent forces who would alter the world to suit their own dark ends. For Perrin and Jenny—and all living creatures— their only hope for preventing the unthinkable lies in a mysterious empire far beneath the sea—and in the power of their dreams.

My Review:

I truly don’t know how I have never read any of Marjorie M. Liu’s books. This story was beautifully crafted and unique. It was fun to read about a ocean based shifters instead of typical land based shifters. Marjorie did a wonderful job of bringing to life the complex hierarchies of dolphins and the dangers that ocean based lifeforms face.

I instantly fell in love with the main characters of Perrin and Jenny. Jenny, as a child, was so brave to attack the big scary man who forced Perrin back in to ocean. I loved how that single, brief encounter bonded the pair and was the catalyst for Jenny’s chosen profession.

There are so many aspects that I love about this story, but to discuss them would require a spoiler warning. So I won’t, I will just let you read the book yourself. After I work through some more of my review pile, I think I will go in search of the first Dirk and Steele book.

I give In The Dark Of Dreams a 4 Horseshoe rating!!
