Blog Tour, Review: Superheroes Wear Faded Denim



Title: Superheroes Wear Faded Denim
Author: 


Goodreads Synopsis:

Blissany Cherry is tired of sleeping around. Her neurologists’ sleep solutions have failed her. Now that her bizarre sleeping habits have begun to include week long dreams she has resorted to her own methods for a cure. 

METHOD ONE: CONTROL DREAMS. All attempts to morph dreams about a gorgeous warrior into romantic fantasies are thwarted. He keeps on insisting she is destined to marry a great king and lead their armies into war. At the end of every dream he asks her: will you fight the war and save mankind? 

She laughs in his face. 

METHOD TWO: RESIST! Blissany has plans for her life. None include fighting an intergalactic war. When her dreams begin spilling over into reality, she is forced to make a decision that will forever redefine her life. Standing between destiny and desire, she is left with only one option. 

METHOD THREE: SURVIVE.


Review:

I absolutely loved the title and cover, and the synopsis only helped me get more excited into reading the book. However, I was disappointed in realizing they almost have nothing to do with the book. It portrayed it in a completely different way than I had expected- not necessarily in a bad way, but still it was a bit misleading.

The book revolves around our world and how it's about to embark on a war due to one of the higher powers being rejected and wanting revenge. They had warriors created with specific powers, prepared enough for such a war. The problem of the matter was, the warriors aren't as supportive of the war and their role in it as the higher powers had expected. Don, believes in what he's told, yet he has mixed feelings about being involved in the whole thing. Blissany on the other hand refuses to take part in the war in real life. So Gabriel tries to convince her in her dream world, yet when she still refuses, Gabriel erases her memories and decides to let her fight whilst sleepwalking, which is one of the reasons why Don has reservations with the whole thing. All Blissany has ever hoped for was a guy being interested enough with her to want to date her, not a war and magic and weird creatures. So when Don approaches her at a party, she's excited for a few seconds before her psycho roommate comes over and captures his attention. Things go up and down, visitors come from different worlds, there's art galleries and fraternity parties, and a whole lot of jealousy in the mix.

This story reminded me a bit of Dream Walkers and Dream Slayers (books I had reviewed a few weeks ago) but it was quite different at the same time. I know how this one is basing a new light on religious aspects like the higher powers and how one of them was rejected for disobeying the rules...etc. But I still liked this new dystopian world, with a surprise in the addition of vampires in the mix. Frankly this was not the book I had expected it to turn out to be at all, but I still enjoyed it very much! I also really liked the names Blissany and Wanikiya. The whole drama and love mess kept me on edge I had absolutely no idea how it was going to end up, so that was rather great.

Anyhow an interesting read!

Rating: 3.5/5
