[NOTE: We were so enthused when this book first appeared in 2006, that we're re-running Colleen Cahill's review. Note this review is for both Volume One and Volume Two.]

There are many things that attract me to a book: a gifted author, an exciting plot idea or even an arresting cover. In the case of Gordon Dahlquist's The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters, I was caught from the minute I read the title. It raised so many questions, such as what are dream eaters and are there really glass books? This is Dahlquist's first novel and the experienced play and screenwriter gives us a mystery, a thriller and a gaslight science fiction work that lives up to the promises offered in his book's title.

From official release/information:

Product Description: A mystery as dazziling as a hall of mirrors. A seductive, terrifying, all-too-real world A beguiling, erotic literary adventure.

Discover why readers everywhere are enthralled by this "marvelous confection of a book."*

In which the astonishing adventure to end all adventures continues—and the excitement doubles.

Like every other honest man, an assassin has his reputation to consider. So it is with Cardinal Chang. A brutal killer with the heart of a poet, Chang is no longer able to trust those who hired him. Disconcerted, he sets out on the trail of a mystery like no other, in a city few have traveled to—featuring three unlikely heroes with a most intriguing bond.
