Lilith's life is starting to work out for a change. Her relationship with alpha werewolf Marco is going great. There's only one problem: Dracula is dying. Not from lack of blood, but for her love. Dracula would never ask Lilith to risk her happiness for him and so he suffers in silence. That is until Lilith finds out. She must come to terms with her feelings for Dracula and realize that the vampire is just as much a part of her as Marco. But if she accepts this, where does that leave the wolf king?"
Ms. Kitts creates an urban fantasy world that is both intricate and compelling in “A Dream Forbidden.” This story will draw you in with its complex and diverse characters and situations. Anyone who likes Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series should check out the Lillith Mercury books.
One thing that I look at with books in a series I have not read is how easy it is to get up to speed with what is going on. With the number of characters involved and their numerous relationships with the heroine, it was difficult to catch on at first. After a few chapters, I had a pretty good feeling about the world and what was going on in it.
I found Lillith’s character to be inconsistent with her actions. For someone who is supposed to be a supernatural assassin, she spent most of the story bawling her eyes out or pouting about her men. Showing more of her strength, especially when she was dealing with adversity, would have made her a more appealing character.
Overall, I did enjoy reading “A Dream Forbidden” and am thinking about checking out some of the other books in the Lillith Mercury series.
