THE DREAM THIEF
Hands of Time Book One
BY LEANN M. RETTELL
In the ethereal world of dreams where fantasy and reality clash, the fate of the world hangs in the balance…
Immortal Dream Thief Gabriel (or Malcolm Jones) has been protecting the world since the dawn of time. Plucking out dangerous dreams before they become reality.
After getting interrupted during a routine case, he now has to track down the unknown dreamer before her dreams blossom into a devastating idea that will end the human race.
With time running against him, Gabriel must rely on his fellow Dream Thieves to save the world from an apocalyptic future or lose everything they fought so hard to protect.
Three books into the Hands of Time series, and Rettell is focusing on the fourth. The Dream Thief begins the story of Gabriel (or Malcolm Jones) as an immortal guarding the world of human dreams and saving the world from the worst of its creations, only this time, he fails…

The Kennedy Expressway stretched out in the distance: open, empty, inviting. Malcolm Jones slid his new toy—a brand new, cherry red Porsche Cayman—easily into fourth gear. Her engine purred around him, and the speedometer rounded the hundred mph mark. At four-thirty a.m., only a few tractor trailers made up the traffic on the interstate near Chicago. Instead of being annoyed with him flying by, they honked at the vehicle’s beauty. Malcolm smiled, happy for once to be alive, a hard feat for an immortal. After a while, eternity was boring. The internal alarm blared inside Malcolm’s head. Not an actual sound, but an overwhelming sense of doom followed by gut-wrenching nausea. He groaned as his mood plummeted, his breathing picked up, and a bead of sweat trickled down the side of his temple. “Shit!”
He gripped the steering wheel with a white-knuckled left hand, and his other hand downshifted and maneuvered the car over four lanes. He pulled into the median, slammed the car into park, and removed the keys from the ignition. The alarm pulsed fast in time with his racing heartbeat. He wished he had time to get to a parking garage, but he couldn’t delay this urgent call. The alarm screamed, marking this as one of those last minute, close-to-dawn nasties that had always been hard as hell, and worse if something went wrong.
Leann M. Rettell was born and raised in West Virginia but now lives in North Carolina with her husband, three children, three crazy dogs, and two aloof cats.
She has dreamed of being a writer since she was a little girl. Never give up. Dare to dream and believe in magic.
