If I could only use one word to describe Dream Weaver by Su Williams it would be SUPERB. Luckily, I get to use more than one. Dream Weaver is an unusual tale, part fantasy, part paranormal, part romance, part horror and part supernatural. When you roll all those genres into one you have a book you can't put down. I started reading this book yesterday afternoon and finished it around 3 this morning. I'm usually a very fast reader but I found I wanted to read slowly to savor the exquisite moments of pleasure this book offers.
Dream Weaver is Su Williams' first novel. I certainly hope it is not her last. Dream Weaver could easily be expanded into a whole series of books. The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, leading me to believe she has more books in mind. I've always been curious about the Nephilim and love the idea of an expanded series of books on the topic, even if it is all fiction. This is a series fans of fantasy will not want to miss.
The Eyes Have It!
This book is a clear case of "the eyes have it". You are drawn in immediately by the cover image. The imagery of a young girl asleep with the mesmerizing eyes overlooking her bed instantly gets your brain working on numerous levels. Are the eyes evil or are they good? These are just a few of the things that go through your head. It is always good if you can get someone's brain working before they even open the cover of the book.
Once Su gets you inside the book, the fun really begins. The young sleeping girl becomes a tragic figure in her own life. So many horrible things happen to her in such a short amount of time, she begins to think she cannot make it and looks to over means of comfort. The dream weaver, Nick is painfully aware of her plight and does all he can to end her pain.
I don't want to ruin the story line, but as the story continues Nick and Emari must face many decisions that will affect both of them together and individually. There are many twists in this story that no one really sees coming until you are in the middle of them. The story is exciting and suspenseful.
Ms. Williams does an excellent job of handling some very delicate social issues that affect many of our young adults today. Her characters are developed well and the plight of the young Emari is most believable. Emari suffers from an actual condition well known among our young people and Ms. Williams works hard in her story line to let those young people know that there is more to life than pain. She gives them a choice and a way out of their misery.
Not only is this a fabulous fantasy read, it is a social commentary that lends help and support to a number of afflicted young people. Ms. Williams has written the story with the compassion of one that understands and knows the pain that they feel. The helpful message is there and clearly stated for those that need it. For the rest of us, it is just a mesmerizing story full of beautiful imagery and fabulous characters. The book is well worth the price in entertainment alone.
