Unfortunately, I think that the writing itself could use some more work. I spotted numerous proofreading errors, including spelling and grammatical errors. This issue is an easy fix, really; all that needs to be done is some more thorough proofreading and editing. The issue—which may not even be an issue to other readers—is that the writing style is more of a storytelling style.
While I believe that “show, don’t tell” is to be taken with a grain of salt, I would have preferred that Murray had used more “show” in her narrative. She does have many wonderful descriptions, such as the purple grass of the Plains, and some unnecessarily detailed ones, such as Midnight’s process in casting the spell to trap the other wizards, but I still think that more detail would have been nice. Murray’s world is so vibrant and intriguing, I just wanted to see more of it.
Of course, the storytelling style could work well for younger readers, perhaps those at the middle grade level. Some of the plot points and histories are a little more complex than this age group usually reads, but I think that the storyteller-feel of the narration would be better received and appreciated by those who have not yet entered high school.
The storytelling does have two perks: I read the 154 pages much quicker than I had expected, and Murray was able to hint at future plot points which the reader would not have seen in a more “showing” narrative style.
Overall, The Dream Walker by Michelle Murray is an imaginative start to an interesting series, and I look forward to seeing what else Murray has in store for Miranda. Fantasy fans will really like it, especially younger readers, but I think that adults would enjoy this quick read as well.
I loved it, and I read it in one day, that is a giant accomplishment for me, having a toddler, a house to run, pets to feed and books to write.
Normally I dont let the grammatical errors to influence the rating, I separate the writing from the story, I rate the story and usually take 1 star out if it has many errors.
I will read the second book this week and I truly hope it gets better.
As I said the story was amazing, Miranda, the main character, is a sweet and smart girl learning about all this magic that she possesses and doesn't hesitate when she has to leave everything, even if temporally, to go help the ones calling for her help.
I honestly can not wait to know how the story continues.
