Their task is complicated by the season, for it is the time of year when the spirits of the dead haunt the city and influence everyone, and also by the change in their relationship when the loss of Philip's job forces him to move in with Nicolas. Mystery, political intrigue, floral magic, astrology, and romance - both theatrical and personal - combine to make this a compelling listen.

Exciting from start to finish!
Would you listen to Point of Dreams: A Novel of Astreiant again? Why?
From what I understand this is only one of many books written by the authors that follow the same two protagonists and exist in the same universe. This book stands alone just fine I had not read the first and was able to follow the plot and characters just fine. After reading this book I am very interested in seeing what other mystery’s/debacles these two found themselves in (and these prior cases are occasionally referenced).
What was one of the most memorable moments of Point of Dreams: A Novel of Astreiant?
I don't want to spoil the story for anyone, but there was a confrontation between the main characters and the villain towards the end that was particularly exciting to listen to and experience. It's a mystery, after all...I don't want to give it away!!
What does Mark Mullaney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
It made the story more exciting to hear it told in the different voices of many characters; I counted more than 40 characters in this book and it felt like each of them had a unique voice and personality.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I loved the dry humor in the story and I found myself chuckling while listening to certain parts. The subtlety of this book, though, is really one of its strong points.
Any additional comments?
The book is basically one part classic full-of-detail murder mystery, one part character driven, and one small part steampunk/sci-fi.

I love this book, disappointing performance
Melissa Scott is one of my favorite authors, but I don't like this narrator.
He's especially bad at women's voices and his accent sounds fake.
