I’ve never been that person to finish a book in under 24h – but I was so entranced by rereading the Silver Trilogy that I immediately picked up the second book of this trilogy, emptied my head of meaningless school stuff, sat down and speed read. Here are my thoughts!
The demonic game is over – but Liv’s live is far from being back to normal: Secrecy, the school blog, knows her deepest secrets, someone isn’t done playing with her – in reality and in her dreams; her new patchwork family also causes slight worries and the passageway of dreams still holds many secrets.
Torn between real problems and threats only outspoken in dreams, Liv struggles to hold up. While her new brother Grayson laid the whole dream situation aside after the game ended, Liv and Henry still enter the passageway every night discovering more unexplainable things than before…

Does anyone else also experience this: you never want the second book of a trilogy to end because starting the finale means showdown time and also the ending of a wonderful era? Or is that just me?
Anyways, if possible, the second book is even better than Dream a little dream. More action: life-threatening situations, more fun and laughter and a couple of twists. The best part of reading is finding a book so gripping, all the other worries of the real world disappear, you don’t get distracted by Netflix or messages and all you desire is to continue to read – this is how I’ve been feeling the last two days because of this trilogy. This is why I love reading.
The plot develops. If the first book meant a gripping plot, this one is even more intensifying, introducing so many new levels and aspects that together form the whole story. While Liv not only struggles with the passageway of dreams, she also has to deal with her stepfather’s mother who seems more than not pleased by her son marrying an American while his previous wife was number 201 on the list of the British Throne. And that means: this book guarantees laughter and humor!
The characters, again, if possible, were even more lovable than before. But also more cunning and twisted: throughout the whole book, intentions are being questioned and actions doubted which makes up a mysterious atmosphere!
The writing was again shaped by jokes and humor which is one of the biggest aspects why I love this series so much. Kerstin Gier has a way of not wanting to be funny but simply being funny without effort. Forced jokes are the worst, but natural funniness is the best aspect a book can have!
Recommendable: to everyone who values a good book!
All in all, this series just gets better and better and to everyone out there: if you love a book that makes you laugh and which is also full of suspense, go ahead and pick this trilogy! Happy reading!
