Th prequel view into the dream travelers and his horrid sister Lyza who I oved to hate in the Reverians series was a great addition to the dream travelers universe as a whole.

Lastly, my biggest complaint about th essa is I still eed to read Book 3 of both series and there are some spoilers at how things end in both series as Ren 's timeline shifts to the future.

I personally ould have done without the spoilers, and later it did n't think as connected to Ren 's personality in the final wrap up of Book 1.

His actions open a new world to Ren, one he embraces until he doesn ’ t.I liked and loathed Ren. He is he perfect anti-hero.

I want it ’ s a defense mechanism and I am curious to see more growth in Ren as the author peels back his layers.Outside threats bigger than Ren exist for the world and I am curious to see what role he will play.Tim Campbell was the perfect choice for narration and captured Ren brilliantly.

He id a great job with secondary characters, snark, and enhancing moments.After finishing I explored the authors worked and saw mention that this is companion series to the Lucidites Trilogy and the Reverians Trilogy.

Q: I ’ m Ren Lewis and I was born with oo much power.

And you eed to realize it!

Actually, this is decen memoi, though not exemplar as we have main rotagonist, whose main problem is total lack of problems due to his so very excruciatingly aweeesome powers that he mentions seemingly on each single page.

And, of course, it 's on telepathy, among ther things, which seems well thought in this world context.And, it 's like a very big problem: if guy is this freakingly gifted mind-reader, how come he ca n't learn driving from someone 's head, instead of fucking with other people 's sheep?

Q: I ’ m way too brilliant to risk a single brain cell.

How did you ever live without knowing that!? Q: The truth invariably set me free, but only because people believed me.

“ he truth is that I was born half Dream Traveler, and ot only could I travel through space and time using my dreams, but as this special race of humans I ’ m also gifted with a skill.

But people thought it was because I as a troublemaker branded with the phras “ cursed ” across my head.

They ad no idea it was because since I was thirty years old I ’ d ome into my gifts and could control most using my mind and hypnotize anyone I dared.

And s these lowlifes go through life like they were given a curse at birth.

Life doesn ’ t make most of us any certain way.

We wake up, and usually without knowing it, act in this way that fits our personality.

It ’ s ust he way I prefer to be.

And if there ’ s one thing I ’ m more excellent at than all the ther ways, it ’ s strategy.

If he understand what ’ s ood for him.

( d) It 's ridiculous but I already appreciat a person who hinks just like thi.

I as a badass but now I needed to ook like one.

( ) Q: “ What do you zink? ” Allouette said in a mischievous tone. “ I sa you people need to ome to terms with reality because these types of living quarters are insanely inadequate.

My original Ren: The Man Behind The Monster audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.When I started this I didn ’ t believe there were entire YA series, The Reverians and The Lucidites, in which Ren appears as a villain.

In fact, after finishing this, I have become interested enough in th world of dream travelers that I am alway keen on listening to more.But back to Ren The Man Behind The Monster.

specially since I as more disappointed than invested in Ren ’ s character from the glimpses we see in The Lucidites and The Reverians, which has since been completely flipped on its head.Ren is not th nice person.

I wasn ’ t expecting much romance in this but the addition of Dahlia made it work like everyon else woul have and I ’ d be lying if I thought I didn ’ t need them together so bad it warmed my heart to see.In the end, Ren is like no other and his story follows the same lines as well.

Ren would never fit in, he would suffer the pain of being different, the ain of letting his power control him and the ain of knowing he as a onster.

id he have the strength? REN: THE MAN BEHIND THE MONSTER by Sarah Noffke is dark, filled with moments of emotional bleakness on the part of Ren as he break down to survive the deeds he has committed.

Ren felt bigger than the narrator portrayed him.
