Dream Sight (Dream Waters #3) by Erin A. Jensen
Dream Sight - Erin A. Jensen

Dream Sight  is the third book in the Dream Waters Series. We go straight back into the thick of the action, with Charlie shouldering (literally) the weight of the mirage, whilst the Dragon King searches for his lost princess. There are red herrings, and diversions aplenty, as the pieces of the puzzle slowly come together. There are also fresh happenings that will be surprising, and enjoyable (and no, I'm not talking about the same events!)

 

Whilst this book feels like it is being wrapped up, there are also more loose ends, which lead nicely to the fourth book. Rose plays more of a part in this book, and Nellie also plays her part, with sorrowful consequences. Tristan plays a role in Mia's life (new character) and I can't wait to find out more about that.

 

I won't give out anything about the story, as I do feel you need to read these to get the full effect. Suffice it to say, the old favourites are there, new characters are introduced, and old enemies are there to despise.

 

As with books one and two, there were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The scenes flowed where they should, and kept my attention. Most definitely recommended by me, and I can't wait to continue with this series.

The Dream of a Thousand Nights by Shira Anthony
The Dream of a Thousand Nights - Shira Anthony

This book is about a bunch of overgrown teenagers with raging hormones, irrational, stubborn and angry. There is no reason to their actions, no logic in their thoughts. The writing itself is on immature side. Disappointed. The rating is for the 40% I've suffered through.

Dream World (Dream Waters #2) by Erin A. Jensen
Dream World - Erin A. Jensen
Dream World takes you back to Charlie a few weeks after his release from the mental hospital. He is unsure what to do with himself, and also doesn't know what to make of the invitation given to him in the dream world by David. Since his release, he's heard nothing from David, or anyone there, and feels like he's been left - again. However, some advice comes from a mysterious stranger, who also gives him some different things to consider. Charlie needs to figure out just how to help Emma, who is fading by the day...
 
This story is intriguing and will definitely keep your attention. You won't know who to trust, or what to believe. It keeps you on your toes and you will love every moment. There is no such thing as good and evil, Light and Dark. Things are always shaded by the varying amounts of 'good' and 'evil'. Something dark doesn't necessarily mean bad, which is something Charlie has to learn for himself.
 
The scenes in here, although each chapter is told from a different perspective, helps to give the reader a more rounded version of what is going on, whilst still keeping them in the dark until necessary. It takes skill to write in such a way, and Erin A. Jensen has perfected that skill, in my opinion.
 
As with book one, there were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The scenes flowed where they should, and kept my attention. I would even say that this book is better than book one, which rarely happens. Most definitely recommended by me.

Dream Waters (Dream Waters #1) by Erin A. Jensen
Dream Waters - Erin A. Jensen
Dream Waters is the first book in the Dream Waters series, and straight away I can tell you that this is a book that is refreshing in its originality.
 
Charlie is the main character, and he has been a long term resident of a mental hospital. This is due to the fact that he can see people's dream forms in everyday life. He is a bit of a character, but tries to remain positive. His life gets more interesting when Emma shows up at the facility. He feels the need to protect her, but also admits to liking her. Slowly, throughout the book, we find out Charlie's full story, Emma's story, and also get snippets from Nellie and Bob.
 
This is not a book to be rushed! It is to be savoured and enjoyed, as the author takes you to a world very different from the one you recognise. It is very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that I noticed. The pacing is smooth, and the scenes flow without disruption from one to the next. With a very interesting cast of characters, this book will definitely leave you wanting more. Highly recommended by me.

Great Nisei/Canadian-Dream historical novel
Floating City - Kerri Sakamoto

Really enjoyed the historical detail in this; the Nisei experience on Canada's west coast is fascinating, and I've only read a few perspectives on it. Authentic-feeling story of a Canadian-born son of Japanese parents from the 1930s-1980s. Starts with childhood experiences living on a floating house on the BC coast and follows through the internment and mountain camps of WWII, setting out to Toronto in the postwar period to build a life, dreaming and working toward success, and dealing with the fallout of letting ambition lead to selfishness. There's a strong fantastic/spiritual/magical realist element throughout, based on legends, dreams and altered perceptions. Very firmly in the literary fiction tradition, with some themes that don't entirely link up. I read a lot of genre fiction and YA, so I wasn't really up for the dark period in the last third, but I liked the earlier bits and the resolution. On the whole, less dark and depraved than a lot of adult literary fiction; it manages to convey a sense of hope, optimism and potential throughout. Very cool Canadian perspective, and it feels authentic enough that I was sad there aren't floating cities in Toronto's harbour yet.
