Review: Day Dreamer @Aaron_Speer

TITLE: Day Dreamer 
SERIES: Undeadly Secrets #2
AUTHOR: Aaron L. Speer
RELEASE DATE: May 30th, 2016
FORMAT: Paperback & ebook
SOURCE: complimentary copy


Alex Hensley thought that discovering vampires existing in Sydney was as dangerous as her life could possibly get, but she was wrong. Her very survival still depends on her ability to keep the secret. Just when Alex believes she has a grip on her new life, Nicholas, the teenage son of her estranged cousin shows up unannounced and gives her a chilling note from his mother, begging for help; the boy is in grave danger.
Nicholas, though kind and mild mannered is not forthcoming and Alex senses something is dreadfully wrong. The more Alex delves, the closer she is to igniting a war more personal for her than she ever dreamed. Though she cannot turn the boy away, something perhaps even worse than vampires has been unleashed in Sydney. The vampire nation scrambles as tensions rise. Their hold over the city has never been challenged like this, and they would rather destroy Sydney than relinquish it.
How can Alex hope to protect Nick, when the entire city is under threat and Alex can warn no one?
Ideals will be shaken. Friendships will be tested. Allegiances will be questioned.
The streets of Sydney will shatter as a bloodthirsty battle, once thought to exist only in myth, rises at the full moon.

I've been writing since I was around 11, and have rarely been seen without staring off into the distance or with a pen in my hand ever since.

Whatever my genre I happen to be writing at the time, I am passionate about bringing this beautiful country I live in, Australia, to light. (Hint hint...even if that includes epic fantasy and vampires)

2014 saw the release of Night Walker, book 1 of the Undeadly Secrets series.
2016 saw book 2 Day Dreamer released along with The Independents; a short thriller about self publishing gone horribly wrong.
2017 saw both the third book Shadow Chaser released alongside Independents II and the news Night Walker had won the Golden Stake Award at the Transylvania International Vampire Film and Fiction Festival.


Day Dreamer continues the story of Alex and Dante, but it also brings new characters for example Nicholas. For me, he took over the story and presented us with a new side of the paranormal world. Now, it's not all about vampires.

Nicholas is more than a sweet, foreign young man, he has a secret that not even him know about. His story and his relationship with Nicole adds action and drama to the plot. This time the threat is not made up of paranormal beings (who continue causing chaos in Sydney) but also bullies are in the middle. There is a lot of "teenage" drama and people wanting to hurt others. There is also, a good quota of love, it was a good addition and make the story more complete.

The story continues growing and evolving. The characters keep adding layers to their personalities. The plot is solid and the writing is really good. There is lots of action and it's easy to read one chapter after the other.
