    3.5 stars It s been way too long since the last Dirk Steele I love this series so I may have come into In the Dark of Dreams with overly inflated expectations Both of the leads, oceanologist Jenny and exiled merman Perrin, with their tragic pasts are appealing And I liked the idea of the psychic bond between them that developed when 1st they met on a beach as children, a bond which grew as they shared dreams for eight years before that dream connection was brutally severed But we 3.5 stars It s been way too long ...

    In the Dark of Dreams is the tenth book in the Dirk Steele series of paranormal romances by Marjorie M Liu Thankfully for this reviewer, who had not picked up a book in the series previously, it could be read standalone with very little difficulty I m sure some of the nuances and inside jokes and comments were lost on me because I didn t read the previous nine novels, but overall it didn t cramp my enjoyment one bit.There is a lot of subtext and hints at past books, but Liu kept the boo In the Da...
