Reviewers say:

“This book is awesome, it paints the world of Fairy in a way that grabs you and keeps you wanting to know more. Claire starts her journey by wishing to be a hero and little does she know what that is going to entail.
As you wonder who or what is going on, you do not know any more than Claire does. As she learns things, so do you. It is very frustrating for her to keep forgetting and being distracted at the point when she remembers. She gets upset with the characters in Fairy who talk in riddles and never really answer her questions. But it keeps her (and you as the reader) wanting to know more so you continue even without knowing hoping to find the answer. It was fun to see Loki/Silvertongue appear for a short period.
Toward the end of the story, you start to get hints at things and even though Claire forgets, the reader does not. But the Author cleverly puts together a story that keeps you wanting to know what is going to happen and how will it happen. No spoilers, but if you want to read a story that is rich in all of the ways that keeps a reader engaged, this one is for you. Most of your questions will be answered at the end but not a minute before they should be answered. She created a very real and creative version of the Seelie and Unseelie that will keep you engaged until the end.”

“The Lord of Dreams started out, at least for me, feeling a lot like my all time favorite movie: Labyrinth. I couldn’t help but seeing the little worm saying, “Don’t go that way. You never go that way. If she would have gone that way, she would have gone straight to that castle.”
(Yes, I did pop it in my DVD player and watch it again, you know, because IT’S THE BEST MOVIE EVER)
Ok, back to the book…Claire, since a young girl, dreams about a man she knows as ‘the villain’ or the ‘nightmare king.’ He puts her through a couple of quests that honestly are pretty lame. Instead of them being challenging at all, she seems to waltz right in, and even though she has no idea about anything she’s doing, just so happens to preform wonderfully and solve the great puzzle easily. To be honest, it was a bit off-putting, because as an author myself, I kept thinking, “There’s so much more we could have experienced here!”
Then, the story developed into a tail that had me smacking myself for being so harsh so early on. Of course the challenges were easy. There is a reason for that. Gah! I totally fell for it! I don’t want to spoil it for you, but seriously…there ARE reasons.
So for that, I give the book a great rating because I was no better at seeing anything than the MC was!
Oh, and there’s that part of me as a child that wished things turned out different with Jereth (David Bowie) at the end of the movie. For making MY dreams come true, I thank you C.J. Brightley.”

“The Lord of Dreams, is a gorgeously written tale about a girl who finds herself transported into Fairyland, tasked with rescuing a prisoner hidden deep in the sparkling, dangerous world of the Fae.
Unlike so many books where the fae are very human, in Brightley’s book they are foreign, magical creatures that live in a world that is so different than our own – a world where time and distance isn’t quite as important as things like intentions and dreams.
The story is filled with wonder, beautiful but menacing creatures, and always shadowed by the mesmerizing Lord of Dreams.”
