In the Novels of the Golden City, J. Kathleen Cheney created a “mesmerizing”* realm where magic, history, and intrigue combine. Now, she presents a new world ruled by psychic talents and deadly magics…

Shironne Anjir’s status as a sensitive is both a gift and a curse. Though she can sense the emotions of others, her talents come with a price: physical blindness and the constant assault of others’ emotions.

A member of the royal family’s guard, Mikael Lee is able to control his feelings while awake. But in sleep, he inserts himself into others’ dreams of death unbidden and broadcasts them to every sensitive in the palace.

In a perfect world, Shironne and Mikael would maintain their distance… But when a killer brings a reign of terror to the city, using blood magic to appease a foreign god, only Shironne can decipher Mikael’s deadly dreams. And what they find will lead them into a nightmare…

  1. I’ve mostly abandoned the fantasy genre, so many seem so alike, but the cover synopsis of Dreaming Death intrigued me, and I am so glad I checked it out of the library — absolutely amazing read, completely engrossing — I’ve just finished it, and I want a follow-up immediately if not sooner! Seriously, I eagerly, avidly await another novel in this particular fantasy world, to find out what happens next to Shironne and Makael — please make it soon! Outstanding!

    1. Oh, thanks so much for the supportive words! I’m glad you liked it.

      I can’t give you a date on the sequel, but there are two planned at this time (and mostly written). But I will definitely be posting here as soon as I know something.

      And thanks again!

      1. I agree with the first comment. The Golden City was such a great blend of police procedural, historical novel and fantasy. It was seamless between the genres. I’ve snapped up every thing else you’ve written since and am really looking forward to more of both series. Thanks so much!
