The Old Gods have risen and moved on, leaving Earth in ruins.

Leon liked that just fine.
He got along better after the collapse of society, and has his own vision for how things should be run: with him in charge of his own fate, with many lovers beneath him.
Yet when he has a run-in with a beautiful and mysterious woman, his life will never be the same.

In When Dreamers Wake, the apocalypse happened, and the world is left in ruins. Leon is one of the few survivors, and he has to adapt to this new, changing world. It’s not that difficult for him though in this new world. He’s a simple man, with simple needs, and he has his own plan to survive. He wants to start a colony, a new society, and be the ruler with a harem of women beneath him.

The novel is filled with sexual encounters, one even happens in the first ten-or-so pages. Leon doesn’t feel much for these women except desire, with the exception of perhaps Tia. But he’s not afraid to sleep with Tia’s sister, or even have sex with multiple women a day.

That all changes when he meets Adrianna though. He starts developing strong feelings for her, feelings he can barely explain.

I wasn’t that fond of Leon. Maybe because I’m a woman, and the story is rather male-centric, but I didn’t like the way he moved from woman to woman without much commitment. I did like Tia, and I even liked Celia, but Leon…I didn’t really get to know him either. I know how he looks like, what he wants, but his personality remained a mystery for most of the novel. Less sexual counquests, more emotions would’ve worked better for me.

As for the women, Adrianna was by far my favorite character. She had spine, spunk, and wasn’t afraid to say no.

Nevertheless, looking at this book for what it is, the sexual conquests were enjoyable, and the writing is good. It was a pleasant read that even made me laugh at times.
