    1 thought on “The Dream Thief”

    1. Beautifully written just like “The Smoke Thief”, this book just sings and lulls you into a fairytale world. Everything is so vivid and bright making even the most banal things sparkle. Abé just keeps you turning the pages to see what will happen next all the while slowly building the sexual tension between Zane and Lia. Zane is a fantastic hero. He’s so jaded. The dry humor and “digs” in this book are top notch. Lia turns out to be a lot stronger than I thought she would be too. The t [...]

    2. I loved the hero in this one. Zane was perfect: started as a bad boy and selfish (which fitted with his personna in The Smoke Thief), but when he came to care for the heroine he was super protective, tender, sweet, seductive and caring. Couldn't find a fault with him:) And if I didn't love him enough, the ending assured that I did!Zane and Amalia are searching for the Draumr diamond: a stone that has magical abilities where the drakon are concerned. Lia has been having some very terrifying dream [...]

    3. Zane is the perfect bad-boy-you've-gotta-love. We know from The Smoke Thief why Zane is such a consummate thief and why he trusts no one (except Lia's mother Rue). And it's easy to understand why he keeps giving Lia the cold shoulder - he understands perfectly what horror awaits any human who messes with dragon girls. And that leads to Lia's other problem - her dragon powers have not fully developed; she can't Turn to smoke and she can't fly; what's the fun in being a dragon if you can't fly?! S [...]

    4. This was a HORRIBLE book.The premise of the book sounds good: an ancient race of dragon-people, living in secret, and gemstones sing to them. There is a legend of one stone that is powerful enough to control all of the drakon. Drakon-girl goes out to find it, falls in love with a human (forbidden). My problem with this book was the detailed sexual content. The heroine (and I use this term loosely) has detailed sex dreams about the hero (again, loosely). The hero’s also gives the reader a detai [...]

    5. ok, so what happens with me quite often when I read a series back to back is I get distracted. Like certain things I've heard already and don't need to hear again, etc. I know this about myself and should not read the next in line in a series without a break. So, what did I do? I read the second book in a series right after reading the first one.I'm giving this 5 stars because it deserves it, but I felt more like 4 stars. Zane is great. Rough around the edges. From the street urchin he was, he c [...]

    6. I love this series. I've never been much for dragon shifters, but after reading this series, I think I have to reevaluate. True, Zane isn't a drákon, but Lia was and I think I have a little bit of a girlie crush on her.I've loved Zane since the first book of the series, The Smoke Thief, and was really looking forward to reading and learning more about him in The Dream Thief. And TDT did not let me down. I adore him even more now. He is sarcastic, uncouth, and vicious, with seemingly no morals, [...]

    7. It seems that I have the most to say about books I do not enjoy.This book was better than the first book in the series, The Smoke Thief. But not by much.Basic plot: The Street Urchin, Zane, a little starving, dirty, wounded, human boy, is saved from bleeding to death by Clarissa Rue, a weredragon. That was in the previous book. Now he's all grown-up and super-hot, apparently. The weredragons can hear jewels and precious metals singing to them. Clarissa Rue, now grown with grown children of her o [...]

    8. Earlier this year a friend of mine dragged me aside, thrust a copy of The Smoke Thief into my hands, and told me to read it or die. So I did, and it was good. Clever, not your typical romance novel, and not your typical fantasy-oriented romance novel (which is the hot new trend these days. Vampires and Dragons and Werewolves, oh my!) In it, a young girl had run away from her secret clan of human-to-dragon shapeshifters (the Drakon) and was plundering her way through London’s jewel chests. Obvi [...]

    9. This is such an amazing series. Such a great concept, crossing historical romance with dragons. And I love the men in it so far! I loved Zane even more than Kip, but they were both so naughty yet still dignified. Zane isnt even Drakon but there was still something about him that was just magnificent and Alpha. I am slightly in awe of him. I really cant blame Lia for being in love with him most of her life. For making a move on a man in his mid-thirties when she was only 14. I am sure she couldnt [...]

    10. Another series flames out. I liked "the Smoke Thief" quite a bit. It had interesting characters, a lively plot and a fun take on dragons and the people who can turn into them. "The Dream Thief" has Lia, the youngest daughter of Rue, the smoke thief. Lia can hear the future and is destined to find the mystical diamond of her people in the Carpathian mountains. Lia is also in love with Zane, a man she's known since childhood which makes their eventual sexual relationship more than a little icky.Th [...]

    11. Once again I find myself in awe of Ms Abé's ability to weave words into a story tapestry. Beautifully written prose, a plot that made me think, and characters that puzzled, charmed and sometimes frustrated me but remained firmly in my head even when I put the book down. These characters are so unlike Rue and Kit from The Smoke Thief, that I'll admit to wondering at first how they could possibly compare in my esteem. Though a continuing story, the world created here was different from the previo [...]

    12. I don't follow series as a rule--but I do follow Shana Abe's Drakon series. It is rare that a writer combines both mesmerizing story telling with mesmerizing prose. Shana Abe does exactly that in her Drakon books, combining beautiful, precise, yet sweeping world-building with intimate, passionate love stories between equals. I can't get enough of those dragon shapeshifters.

    13. Much better than the first. As always, Shana Abe's writing is a dream, and the dynamic between Amalia and Zane was so inventive.

    14. This is book two in the Drakon Series by Shana Abe' that started with "The Smoke Thief". I actually liked this book quite a bit better than the first one. It helped that I knew to expect a story that was more of a romance than a fantasy.This book follow's Rue's daughter, Lia, and Rue's ex-assistant thief, Zane. In this book Rue hires Zane to go and retrieve the Draumr, a dangerous diamond that can control drakon. Little does Rue know her daughter Lia has been hearing Draumr's song her whole life [...]

    15. Wow! I read this in two sittings - long ones though! I love this author's writing and so glad I discovered her and this series. Romance, humor, adventure, fantasy, and wonderful characters all woven together with beautiful descriptions of people and places. Although I understood the legend of the drakon through reading the first book, The Smoke Thief, I did find it confusing at first. The two page prologue in The Dream Thief is shorter, and I wish i had read it before starting the first book. It [...]

    16. Rüya Hırsızi Shane Abe kenara uzun zaman önce koyup unuttugum kitaplardan.Ingiltere'den Romanya'ya Karpat Daglarina kadar uzanan Historical Fantastik bir hikaye ilk roman Duman Hirsizindan daha cok begendim. Bu daha soft bir ejderha hikayesi. Shane Abe'nin büyülü kalemi ile hala daha tanısmadıysaniz cok sey kacıriyorsunuz bence. Seriye Duman Hirsizi ve Rüya Hirsizi kitaplari ile başlayabilirsiniz. Rüya Hırsızi serinin ikinci kitabi. Ilkkitapta Rüya Hirsizindaki Amelia Longford' [...]

    17. After some consideration, I have decided that it's not that writing in this book is exceptional, it's just that I've read so much godawful writing recently that the merely decent is beginning to look like genius. However, it is decent.I have the impression the book is the second in a series, and if I should stumble across the first, I'll probably read it. I think this book falls into the interesting-to-me category of "paranormal romance," which I will admit I find silly, although I'm more likely [...]

    18. Okay, I just have to say it. I have a huge problem with girls falling in love with men they have known since they were babies. If they grow up together, that's one thing, but when the guy is already fourteen when she's born, a family friend whom she's grown up knowing, it simply has a bit of an ick factor for me. That is the problem here. The whole time their love story is developing, this little voice in my head keeps saying eww Never a good start in a romance.I still enjoy the lore of the drak [...]

    19. It's been a while since I read the first book in the series, but I remember finding it original and very engaging. The same is true for this second book, which tells the story of Zane, Rue's protege, and Amalia, aka Lia, her youngest daughter.Lia is seemingly Gift-less, unlike her siblings who are all Gifted and admired. That is not quite true, however, since she has the very rare gift of seeing the future in her dreams, and it looks grim. Zane plays a significant part in them, and, deeply in lo [...]

    20. Amazing! This series just keeps getting better! So far, Zane and Lia (the main characters in the Dream Thief) are my absolute favorite! They go on one hell of an adventure together searching for a Drakon diamond that has called to Lia ever since she was a young girl. Zane is the love her entire life, literally. She's dreamt of him for as long as she's heard the diamond. The only problem is Zane is a notorious thief and the diamond they seek will give any human who holds it the power to control t [...]

    21. I thought the first book in this series was just ok, but I liked the idea enough to give the story another go. I'm glad I did, because this one's better. I don't think this would work well as a stand-alone, because the dragons and their origins are explained in the first book. Also, I would have liked a little more explanation as to how Lia sees different visions of the future (and how outside factors change what she's seen), but overall I liked it.

    22. Intrigue, adventure and romance await when you open up Shana Abe's second installment in the Drakon series.The Dream Thief picks up a few years after the events of The Smoke Thief. Rue and Kit went on to lead their tribe in Darkfrith and have a family of their own. This sequel surrounds Kit and Rue's youngest and seemingly unremarkable daughter, Amalia (or Lia for short), and Zane, Rue's 'street urchin' whom she took in when she found him as a child dying on the streets of London.Zane is now an [...]

    23. Wow. Loved it. And I'm not easy to please.I don't usually read much fantasy. I'm more of a sci-fi girl myself. I don't like vampires and werewolves, angels and demons --- but I don't mind a little magic and dragons (probably because I can imagine the magic as yet-to-be understood science and the dragons as a lost species or alien creatures, you see. grin) I am so glad I picked up this book.But not just because of the dragons. It's because Shana Abé is a fantastic writer. She has illustrated to [...]

    24. In the fantasy genre this would be a quest novel but instead it is a paranormal historical romance- ie it is trying to cover a lot of ground in not many pages. Frankly it doesn't stand up very well against other quest novels. It's too short and misses out all the interesting bits (eg the heroine sneeking away from her school, travelling across Europe by herself etc) because then the hero and heroine wouldn't get enough page time together. I think that the length of the book was 334 pages- and sh [...]

    25. What started as a promising read turning into a story with great potential, reading like a young adult romance novel and written for adults, complete with adult elements. After the first few pages, I was wondering why this had not been shelved in the young adult fiction, as the style seemed to better fit that genre. The main character was 14 when the book began, and 19 when the main action of the plot began. Young adult fiction, right? Then I reached some, shall we say, romantic parts that were [...]

    26. So we met and know of Zane from the last book and here he is showing up again, but all grown now and of course coming on to Rue's daughter, well not at first she has some growing up to do. Which yes does gross me out a little bit being in love with someone since you were young and knowing you were going to end up together but then again it is kind of like having a crush on someone since you were young and given the chance you would probably go out with said person you had a crush on as well so n [...]

    27. I picked up this book not knowing it was a "book two." However, that did not really impact my reading of the novel as it seems fairly stand alone. I really had high hopes for this book but it never quire lived up to my expectations. It tried to be a love story and seemed more like a lust story, the dragon aspect was probably the thing that saved this book from being tossed aside. I felt the plot was slow and the characters really didn't resonate for me. That being said, it was an easy read and i [...]

    28. So far, I wish this series wasn't solely a romance novel. I thought it would be fleshed out a bit more since it was in the Fiction section at my library, not the romance section. I really think that the author has the ability to really make something more out of the setting and the characters that she has created. I would have loved to see more of the political maneuverings and daily interactions of other characters. If this series didn't follow the Romance Novel Formula to a T, it really could [...]

    29. I thought this book was interesting but way too explicit for my taste. At some points it felt more like a trashy romance novel than it did a fantasy. Nevertheless, I thought the fantasy aspects of the book were intriguing while some of the characters felt a bit dry. Overall, I think this book goes on my DO NOT RECOMMEND shelve because of the romance masquerading as a fantasy which was truly disappointing.
