Two gods, Faily and Gion created the planet, Maion and the Kiale, then destroyed Maion after Gion had an affair. They ended up killing all but three brothers that were saved by a half-brother before he was killed. Ralden encounted Zoey when she started dream walking as a child and maintained their friendship until Ralden wanted to meet her. 

Kiale’s Dream, the first book in the Kiale Sons series, gives us an unusual look at vampire/angels.  I really liked the way the author combined the two into the race of the Kiale.  The descriptions of the Kiale gave me very vivid pictures of what Ralden and his brothers would look like. 

The story was an interesting one, though I did have a little trouble with having almost two complete storylines within the book.  One slight problem with this was that it kept jumping back and forth where one story was about Faily and Gion were punished by Asdon until they stopped warring with each other by being banished from Opyis. The other was about Ralden and Zoey.  Both couples burn up the pages. 

I could understand Zoey’s concerns, due to the way she had been raised as well as how people reacted to her gift.  That did not stop me from wanting to slap some sense into her, though.  The author created a very good foundation for the relationship between Ralden and Zoey.  

I was a little surprised by some of the twists toward the end.  One small incident created a big crisis that, in some ways, was sort of anti-climatic.  I also kept waiting for the two storylines to connect a little.  I did laugh at Ralden’s brothers’ reaction to the birth of their niece and to Zoey. 

I am looking forward to the next story about Ralden’s brothers.
