I don't know what it is about these books, but I'm reading them over and over again. It could be that they are beautifully written. The poetry of Davids words are extremely captivating, and will pull you into a new world that you never knew existed. It could be that David leaves you wanting more, not just at the end of each chapter, but at the end of each page. Light of the Moon is a real page turner, and it's been a while since I found a book that could hold my attention as well as this book here. I never had the chance to get The Witch's Curse and The Warrior's Code, but that was only because I don't believe in the whole kindle. It doesn't mean that I didn't go out and buy a e-device, because I did and it turned out to be the wrong one. So I went against the one thing that I truly believe in just so I could read David's stories. Thankfully he put those two and a new story in paperback version titled Shades of the Stars.
Now I sit here patiently waiting for Shadow of the Sun to be released, so I can finally rest easy to see what David has done with the characters I have grown to love. And because I want to know if someone makes an appearance in this novel. David knows who I'm talking about, but I will not mention their name.
The Legend of the Dreamer series is a duet of books about a boy, a girl, and a dark curse that binds them both to a dangerous destiny. There is kissing and blood and secrets. There are twists on ancient Greek dream mythology and on the constellations above. The series is best read in the order of publication. The first book in the series, LIGHT OF THE MOON, was released on November 6, 2012. An e-format short story called THE WITCH'S CURSE was released on December 18, 2012. Another short story called THE WARRIOR'S CODE will be out in e-format in early 2013, and the sequel, SHADOW OF THE SUN, will be out early in 2014.
But before we get into this series let us get to know the author a little better. If you do not already follow/stalk him on facebook and twitter, I personally believe that you should.
You can also follow his blog, which also let's you know what he's been up to, what books he enjoys reading and when to expect more novels from him.

LIGHT OF THE MOON (Book 1)"One night long ago, a constellation disappeared and fell from the sky in the form of a boy. Secrets are being kept in the sleepy town of Lakewood Hollow, Colorado. Nothing but pools of blood and dripping words are left where bodies once were, and no one but Calum Wade seems to be worried. Life unfolds in shades of red for Calum, until a mysterious girl named Kate Black enrolls at his school and everything changes. Suddenly a dangerous world of dream demons, elemental enchanters, and blood witches unfurls before Calum. He learns that the stars have forever held his destiny, and that the constellations above are much more than what they seem. As Kate and Calum sink deep into a paranormal war, they realize that an ancient prophecy might hold the answers they seek. But life is not so easy for Calum, and he can feel his heart beat faster whenever Kate is close. Worse, Kate's blood holds a dark secret even more dangerous than the war between the demons and enchanters. Soon the two find that there are worse things than loving someone you shouldn't. For Calum and Kate, even love and the fiery power of stars may not be enough to break a curse as dark as the blood that binds their destiny."

To deny her love for Samuel would be unthinkable, but to defy her destiny would be impossible. Before the curse can consume her, Magda must decide between Samuel and destiny, and her heart may beat too savagely for anyone to stop.
