The Nightmare & The Daydream


The Nightmare… Melinoë, Goddess of Nightmares and Ghosts, mysteriously spawned from the deepest pits of Tartarus, spent centuries barely surviving and enduring torture in the Underworld. Now she spends her life teetering on the brink of insanity and clinging to reality. After one fateful night in a nightclub with her best friend, Persephone, Melinoë gains a stalker in the form of the Titan of the Sun.

The Daydream… Helios, Titan of the Sun, became instantly obsessed with the little gothic Goddess of Nightmares the second she knocked him out after their tryst in the club bathroom. Since then, he has shined for her and her alone. But war is here, and Helios has some big decisions to make regarding which side he will fight for. Will he choose love or his family?

Some Opposites Should Not Cross Paths… When tragedy strikes, Melinoë has to use her abilities to bridge the gap between her friends. The problem? Every time she does, she is pushed closer to the edge of complete insanity. Mellie would rather dive headfirst into the River Styx than admit that the only person able to pull her from the deepest recesses of her mind is the one person she can’t stand. Will Melinoë allow herself to open up to the Titan of the Sun? Will Helios choose to fight alongside his family or stand by his friends?

My Thoughts:

This Novella is excellent. I love the portrayal of Melinoë and Helios, and their back and forth. It is such a good showcase of mental illness and also what support looks like from those around you.

Supporting someone with mental illness, or someone who is the goddess of nightmares is tough work, but it doesn’t make the person any less lovable – and that is exactly what we see from Helios. He is her sunshine and he will be the light in the darkness always for her.

I teared up so many times reading this novella – the vulnerability, the despair, the tough relationship. It was all so much and so good.

Their dirty rough spice is amazing and while not my cup of tea in real life, was perfect for the 2 of them. Who new ‘sunboy’ was so dark and depraved?? We love it.

Overall, The Nightmare & the Daydream Novella as book 3.5 in the Love and Fates series by Alexis Rune & Jeannette Rose was excellent and I loved it so much. I companion read it with The Queen and The King (book 3) and it was so perfect together like that. I would love to get a special edition of the book where this and book 3 are combined.

Worthy of a reread.
