It’s been nine months since my brother was murdered, and I’m closing in on his killer.
My name is Erica Powell, and I am a dream thief. I support my family by selling the dreams of my neighbors and classmates on the black market of Somnus, the dream world. Sedona, Arizona is a hot spot for New Age believers, which makes the local dream walkers more powerful than normal.
Sandwomen, Oracles, Shades, Incubi and Succubi: there are dozens of races wandering Somnus who play with your dreams, and your head. Then there’s me, the one who just steals your dreams outright. My brother’s friend, the incubus Arc, is the only one in Somnus I can trust. A one-man panty dropper, Arc can charm almost everyone, and he’s the one who sells the dreams that I find. He’s also my only source for information.
There is something more dangerous than the usual dream walker in Somnus. They’re called Muses, and they think that they’re gods. Their power allows them to shape Somnus to their will, and I don’t know how, but I’m going to kill the one who killed my brother.
The only problem is that your dreams never tell you the whole story, and someone I love is going to betray me.
