Blog Tour - Death is but a Dream - REVIEW + Giveaway

Death is but a Dream by Erin Hayes 
Publication date: Fall, 2013 
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Mythology


Caught between life and death, all Callie wants is to live again.

Homicide detective Callie Saunders knows that death isn’t all pearly gates and angels. After being hit by a bus, she finds that it's the ancient gods and goddesses of Greek mythology who are in charge of everything.

So when Hades offers her a deal, she accepts. If she wants to be brought back to life, she’ll have to figure out who is trying to kill his son. But if she fails, both her soul and the world will be destroyed.

With the odds mounting against her, it’ll take everything she has within her to wake up from death. But the rules are constantly changing. And someone wants her to stay dead.



Sci-fi junkie, video game nerd, and wannabe manga artist Erin Hayes writes a lot of things. Sometimes she writes books, like the fantasy mystery Death is but a Dream and the sci-fi middle grade book Jacob Smith is Incredibly Average. You can reach her at and she’ll be happy to chat. Especially if you want to debate Star Wars.

I received this book for a honest review and as a part of the tour!

This book was not I was expecting. Why I say that? Because first when I read the synopsis I was expecting a novel full of action, suspense, a badass girl and maybe a little bit of romance. But it wasn't like that. This book had this things but I couldn't sympathize with the characters. And I'm sorry about that.

And another thing that I disliked it that at some point the story became predictible. After we found out who is the "killer" the suspense wasn't so dense. Or for me wasn't anymore. I could see what is going to happen and of course the impact of the facts wasn't strong.

This book has a good idea in essence but for me the whole thing wasn't wow. As I said at the beginning I couldn't sympathize with the characters, and for that, the story didn't made me eager to know what's going to happen. I enjoyed it, I liked the world building, how Callie try to fix things and find out the true. But I couldn't feel anything, and that ruined a lot.

If you like mythology, Greek gods, adventures and all that kind of stuff then I recommend this to you, and maybe you'll enjoy more than I did.
