[NOTE: We were so enthused when this book first appeared in 2006, that we're re-running Colleen Cahill's review. Note this review is for both Volume One and Volume Two.]

There are many things that attract me to a book: a gifted author, an exciting plot idea or even an arresting cover. In the case of Gordon Dahlquist's The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters, I was caught from the minute I read the title. It raised so many questions, such as what are dream eaters and are there really glass books? This is Dahlquist's first novel and the experienced play and screenwriter gives us a mystery, a thriller and a gaslight science fiction work that lives up to the promises offered in his book's title.

From official release/information:

Product Description:
Here begins an extraordinary alliance—and a brutal and tender, shocking, and electrifying adventure to end all adventures.

It starts with a simple note. Roger Bascombe regretfully wishes to inform Celeste Temple that their engagement is forthwith terminated. Determined to find out why, Miss Temple takes the first step in a journey that will propel her into a dizzyingly seductive, utterly shocking world beyond her imagining—and set her on a collision course with a killer and a spy—in a bodice-ripping, action-packed roller-coaster ride of suspense, betrayal, and richly fevered dreams.
