Prince of Dreams
Kesh fled Faerie as a queen killer. Now she returns as the Faerie King’s secret obsession. But on Faerie, nothing is as it seems, not even Kesh herself.
With days to stop Arran’s execution and the stoic guardian, Sirius, as her constant shadow, Kesh must weave her lies deep within Faerie’s courts where magic and whispers combine and conspir ...more
The series' two strongest features are its world and its character development.
The world Pippa has built is a complicated mix of epic fantasy and gritty sci-fi: picture a galaxy in which mythical fae have planted the seeds of life in different star systems, creating sentient races (including humans) meant to someday evolve to serve their creators. However, hum ...more
How dare you do this to my babies?!
CANT THEY JUST BE HAPPY FOR ONCE?!
￼And... that one part. Why do I feel like she's going to be like 'he is the droid i was looking for'
Like ... it got me even smouldering?
AM I CRAZY OR SOMETHING?
DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK!!!
(view spoiler)[i'd so hop on sota's dick in a heartbeat ... now that he semi has one? (hide spoiler)]
DON'T JUDGE ME.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
Excellence as usual.
While I've knocked a star off because Kesh spent most of the book separated from Talen and Kellee, it did help her relationship with Sirius flourish. (Aside: Sirius is awesome. In fact, all of Kesh's men are. Lucky cow). We also got to see a ton of Eledan, which was great because I absolutely bloody LOVE him.
The plot twists were brilliant and the cliffhanger is brutal - cannot wait for more!

This series has seriously captured my heart. It brings my love of fantasy and my love of science fiction crashing together to form something truly unique. The mashup of genres is like drugs for me. I get so excited just thinking about the fantasy and science fiction aspects that compliment each other splendidly. My fangirl heart just won't rest.
One thing to mention about this series is that it is a reverse harem series. I am very new to ...more
I just want it to fit into my idea of RH which it just never will
Every time I thought Kesh was taking a step forward she seemed to take 2 back instead. So frustrating, the grovelling (even if it was a lie) and kneeling to Oberon grated on my nerves the most.
This instalment was broken in Kesh's story and we also it another POV from Kellee which was nice. Marshal and Talen were on their own mission apart from Kesh who was on Faerie
Yes just as things were co ...more
"Faerie was not how I remembered."
I'm in lust with this series gorgeous cover art. Hat's off to the artist.
Change is afoot

Unlike my previous reviews for this series, this review will be short in both length & details. Mostly because it's the fourth book in the Messenger Chronicles & as such most fans will have already become familiar with each character's personality, t ...more
I think I fried and lost thousands and thousands of brain cells while making an attempt to deliver the poetic justice of a review this read deserves. And at the same time, I don't want to be the one to spoil any of you and other readers because let's be real here...I can't not speak about any of it without ending up revealing spoilers every now and then. And I know most of the times I end up having side notes/comments. So here goes:
(Non-spoiler ver) I want to say I haven't expe ...more
It’s not a dream.
You know, book 3 really had me all worked up.
Now, now. Book 4 has me all sorts of fucked up.
ARE YOU SIRIUS???
Lololol. Sorry had to. Hahahahaha I mean... the opportunity presented itself graciously. Serious=Sirius. I couldn’t take it seriously at first but then I realized Kesh was all for Sirius.
I still can’t believe Sirius is now... a part of the harem.
I now have to reimagine him in my head. So far my feeble mind has conjured a HOT Ron ...more
"The good messenger was a myth. The truth of me wasn’t a shining star of hope at all. I was full of holes and wrongs and broken things, the pieces of which I’d picked up and tried to fix but none of it had fit. I did want to fuck them over. I did want them to bow to me, to kneel to me, to need me like I needed them. I’d wanted it since the first lash of Dagnu’s whip. I didn’t even need to beg. Eledan saw the truth inside me, saw the want and need in my eyes. I wanted all...more
How to explain why I love this entire series so much…. It isn’t often that a book can make you run the gamut of the emotional spectrum and leave you feeling wrung out, but also anticipating the next part of the story. That is how I have felt with EVERY book so far in this series. The emotional capacity of all the characters, even the “vi ...more
We finally get back stories of the characters in book 3 and it continues to expand in Prince of Dreams. Prince Eledan is back, but did we all seriously think he was gone for good in book 1? I love the depths that both Kellee and Talen feels for Kesh and the bond they are forming with each other. Kellee may have finally found his family. The surprise or maybe not was Sirius ...more
My poor human heart can’t handle all the feels! Just when you think you know what is going on, the rug gets pulled out! So much happened in this book; I laughed, cried, rejoiced and fretted. All I know is Kesh is on the right path with her guys (even the tek boy toy). This story has more lies and twists that I can’t even keep up! But it’s soooo good and I can’t wait to see where the next book takes us!
Kesh, Kellee, Talen, Sota, Hulia, Arran, Sirius and Eledan return in this penultimate adventure of the Messenger Chronicles. Kesh, Arron and Sirius are on Faerie, playing a game of truth, dare or lie with both Oberon, King of all Faerie, and Eledan, the Prince of Dreams. Heartbreaking promises are made, truths are twisted and hearts are made and broken.
Prince of Dreams rocked my world.
This one picks up right after Arran and Sirius were huge dip-shits.
Faerie is dying. Oberon’s reign is a mess. Oberon is a mess.
I can't even say things without ruining this book.
Kesh, Kesh, Kesh...
You are my spirit animal.
Kesh, Talen, and Kellee's relationship in this one slays me. There is finally trust between them, well almost. They are so far apart physically but so close in most other ways. I abso ...more
I received this book as an Arc for an honest review. Buy it, Read it, you’ll love it, I did, and have preordered a copy.
Absolutely Brilliant, Kesh has been separated from her two favourite men, taken back against her will to Farie, by Aeon, and boy has he gotten himself into big trouble, least of all by Kesh, but Kesh can put that aside to try and save him. I love how we get to hear Kellies point of view in this book, he is a million light years away, but we still get to hear from hi ...more
Ms. DaCosta crafted yet another masterpiece. Secrets, revelations, and betrayals make this one unpredictable book. I cannot wait for the next one. Is it April yet?
As far as I'm concerned DaCosta is the Empress of the Slow Burn. Every book builds on the anticipation of the previous one, and Prince of Dreams transitions from the slow burn to an full 4 alarm fire. DaCosta lived up to the potential, then exceeded it. Spending 3 books to work up to this is pure genius. DaCosta has a cast of beau ...more
The characters are even more complex than before. They often went back and forth between different aspects of th ...more
This has been a tough review to write. I’m not a fan of Multiple Points of View (MPoV) but I don’t think this story could have worked any other way. I do, however, find myself mistrusting Kesh’s story alone – she has proven to be an unreliable narrator in the past, and I don’t think we should quite relax about that just yet. It is a fascinatingly woven story, and does not disappoint. It doe ...more
I love, love, love this series! I've been hooked since book 1 and can't get enough of Kesh, Kellee, Talen & Sota. Prince of Dreams does not disappoint. Like all the other books in the series, every time you think you have it all figured a new wrench is thrown in and you realize you don't really know it all. The character development in this book is also fun to see. We get to really know Kellee and of course see Kesh continue to grow while still making mistakes and learn ...more
