“I didn’t expect to be woken up by someone I don’t know dreaming about killing somebody. I thought I was done with that once and for all…”
But Sara’s not done with it. As if adjusting to life as a newlywed and starting medical school weren’t difficult enough, she’s started seeing the dreams of everyone around her, again. Before everything is said and done, those dreams might destroy Sara’s hopes of becoming a doctor, wreck her marriage and even end her life…
“Dream Doctor” is the thrilling second novel in the Dreams series.
This is the second book in the “Dream” series. To see my review of the first book “Dream Student”. Click the title.
I actually liked this book better than I did the first. Which is definitely not the norm for a series. The writing was still just as good as the first book. The pacing was perfect. It really felt like this book moved a bit faster than the first. Probably because a lot of the character explainations were already established from the first book. There was less exploration of her “Psychic powers” and I think that helped to keep the story moving.
As a reader, one of my favorite things about a series is how the books following the first usually flow better. I’ve already established who the characters are. I already know in some ways what to expect and instead of being dropped into a new world with new rules, I am already familiar with the premise.
I really enjoyed seeing through the eyes of a medical student. DiBenedetto did a fantasic job of describing the fears and emotions that come along with such a demanding college major. I was drawn into Sara’s thoughts and feelings much more than I was with the first book.
I also really enjoyed how multi-faceted this story was. Sara still has to plan for her future with her husband while balancing college and her gift. Bringing that into the story really helped to make the whole book more realistic and relatable.
I greatly enjoyed the book and hope to read and review the rest of the series. I would definitely recommend it. It’s a great story.
I give this book 5 stars.
