Able to navigate sleep’s vast dreamwaters, wild child Maisie Lane makes easy money as a courier delivering packages from one dream to another. So what if her employers are on the shadier side of the law? Her sister thinks she’s living for the pleasure of the moment. Pleasure is involved—why shouldn’t it be?—but every step Maisie takes is part of a careful plan. That is, until she crosses into a dream so evil, she has no choice but to run.

Special Agent Steve Coll is tasked to recruit Maisie for Chimera, the organization that polices shared dreams. At first he’s taken with her funny and carefree spirit, then brought to his knees by her tough and passionate soul. Touching her is forbidden ecstasy, but Steve can’t resist breaking the rules with Maisie. A darkness is gathering, evil preparing to strike, and only Maisie stands between it and innocent lives. No matter what happens, Steve won’t let her stand alone—he’ll die before he leaves her side.

My Review 4

Lay Me Down is the second book in Erin Kellison’s Reveler series. This book continues the story of Darkness Falls but is focused on Coll and Maisie. I do suggest you read a Darkness Falls first so you understand the dream world (the Reve).

I really love this series! It is so unique and in Lay Me Down more of the Reve is explained. After learning more about this dream world I’m afraid to go to sleep! The scrape is a place I definitely would not want to visit.  The twists in the story was surprising and exciting. I can’t wait to read more of this series!

My only complaint is Maisie.  It took me a while to really like her.  She is a young stubborn girl who doesn’t want anyone’s help. Later on we understand why but before that I felt like she was a brat. Maisie is 21-years-old but at times she acted like an adolescent. And at first I was uncertain of Coll, based on Maisie’s complaints and description of him I thought he was a 50-year-old man. But he was actually 29. So Maisie came across as immature instead of the rebel that everyone perceived.  But eventually I got used to her attitude and grew to understand and like her.

Revelers is an exciting new series and I recommend this to all adult paranormal fans!!
