Series: The Bone Dressing #2
Publisher: Savage Enterprises
Publication Date: November 11, 2012
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Smashwords

The time for best friends and midnight escapes to the cemetery Syd calls home is over.
As Syd faces the dangerous mysteries lurking in the shadowed depths of her past, she must sail from the shores of sanity through the rocky waters of the unknown on her journey to the sleeping bones of her next past-life. Caught on a roller coaster ride through mysterious cultures, rogue mercenary pirates, past loves and new-found abilities, Syd must find the strength to listen to her own heart. She must find a way to embrace her destiny, her future ... and her past.
Help continues to come through the unlikely team of Sarah and T.J., Syd’s personal time-challenged dynamic duo. Blipping on and off her radar at the worst times, they never seem to be front and center when she really needs them. And Beau ... when will she be able to function, to breathe, in his presence? What is her inescapable connection to him? And why can’t he admit his attraction to her?
Off on a race against time, against evil-incarnate, against her own fears and passions, Syd must turn to the strength within. To the strength of Bone Dressing. Bone Dressing: The Dreaming, the second in a series of seven books, will carry Syd and Beau further on their adventure that transcends life itself.

*My Review of The Bone Dressing(the first book)*

Bone Dressing: The Dreaming is another crazy but interesting installment in the Bone Dressing series. Bone Dressing was the very first review request I ever received and I could not be happier to be asked to continue the series. In the first book, Sydney experiences one of her past lives. In The Dreaming, Sydney travels to Australia to experience another past life in the hope of learning from her past self’s mistakes and gain the power and knowledge to defeat the creepy Mr. A

Sydney and Beau’s relationship is continuing to grow as their feelings continue to deepen. Sydney, who was scared of letting anyone in after losing her parents, has created a family with Beau, Sarah, and T.J. This new love and family allows Sydney to grow as a character and gives readers a different side of Sydney.

I will have to say that Mr. A is even more sadistic than he is the first time. A few scenes had me absolutely disgusted by his behavior. I also felt it is only fair to warn readers that there is sexual content in this book, one instance in peculiar that may be better suited for an older audience, so please keep that in mind. 

Bone Dressing deals with past lives and reincarnation, something not usually taken on in book. That choice offers readers a difference when too many novels are becoming similar. I am interested to see where and what time Sydney is going to explore next.
