All of the world's dreams are about to die. The Shadow People have come. Always near, they linger in the darkness, ready to devour dreams, hopes, aspirations and desires. . .
Aisling, having lost her dream of becoming a fashion designer, learns that she's a Faerie changeling. Disquieted by the fact that her faerie parents are kidnappers, she has decided to rescue the human child she was exchanged for, but her "sister" is no longer among the faeries, having been taken by the Shadow People. Ith, the Lord of Shadows, is trying to control the dreams of mankind, which are under the protection of the faeries, so they're at war.
Aisling, who doesn't believe in dreams any longer, is falling in love with a handsome, mysterious stranger - one of the Shadow People.
If you love fairies then this book is for you. I myself love fairies and I thought this was a cute, fun read. Aisling is a girl that's been swapped out for another baby in the human world to protect her so that she could fulfill a prophecy. She has known for a long time that she is different than everybody else. She is kicked out of fashion school because she makes cloths that are too beautiful. This makes for a bad day until she makes it to the land of dreams and finds out she's a fairy changeling and can make any outfit she wants and everybody loves them including the queen. Fashion plays a big role in this book and can at times be a little much but still cute and worth the your time to read. I read it fairly quickly and enjoyed it. The only thing that really bothered me was that their was no romance not even a kiss to speak of and everyone knows I'm all about the romance. :) So, if your a fan of dreams, fairies, fashion and fantasy this is the book for you.
