The Draumr, a diamond that can enslave the drákon, has sung to Lia since she was a child. Now its call is leading her to the Carpathian Mountains. Along with the talent of shifting into smoke and dragon, some of the drákon have other Gifts and Lia’s is to see the future in dreams. The dreams are telling her that her future is with Zane, but it’s not the kind of happy future she’d like to see. In fact, her dreams tell of the harm that could come from Lia’s association with Zane. She has to get to the diamond before Zane has a chance to, or the future of her race will be a dark one.

When Zane, a talented thief, agrees to travel in search of a diamond wanted by the Langfords, he doesn’t expect the appearance of their daughter by his side. Still, he has a better chance of finding the diamond with Lia to help guide the way. He’s sure she’s hiding something from him, something she knows from her dreams, but there’s no convincing her to share that knowledge. As they grow closer to the Draumr their survival is tested, but there’s nothing short of their deaths that will stop them now. The fate of the drákon’s will soon be in their hands.

The Dream Thief is the second book in the Thief Trilogy. Lia’s family believes she has been given none of the Gifts that being a drákon brings, but she’s about to prove them wrong. Zane and Lia team up to retrieve the Draumr before someone gains the ability to enslave the entire drákon race. This fantasy filled historical will enchant readers and whisk them away on dragon scaled wings. Passion and romance grow steadily as Ms. Abé creates a vividly detailed and captivating tale. A fantastical world that readers will anticipate visiting again soon.
