Dream Waters will draw you in, and swirl you around in a whirlpool of desire, fantastical beasts, and forever friendships. I cannot wait for the next book in this series. It really is one of those books that you do not want to put down, and once you have finished it, you want to restart it. This is not a book for young readers, due to some adult content, but everyone else should certainly give this book a read. - Manhattan Book Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.

The story opens with Charlie, a patient in Parker-Banks mental health facility and a host of exciting characters in a group therapy session. We discover a little about our new friend as he watches the developing storm among other patients, and it's here that our first glimpse into what makes Charlie different from everyone else is revealed. He sees things others do not; people have more than one form to our dear hero; their human one and another, somewhat sinister, alternate being. He routinely enjoys seeing the group meetings unravel into complete chaos, but on one such occasion, an intoxicating scent stops him in his tracks.
Enter Emma: Sweeping into the facility like a tidal wave she changes everything Charlie ever thought he knew. She is the most gorgeous woman he’s ever laid eyes on, and her sad, secretive manner only heightens the attraction. A fierce protective vibe propels him to befriend Emma. They are fast friends, but their bond stirs other patients in the facility in unexpected ways, and for the first time in his life, young Charlie discovers his ‘sight’ may not be as rare as he’d previously thought.
As the story develops, fellow inmates at the facility, Bob and Nellie, become an integral part of Charlie and Emma’s story, and we learn that not all imaginary things are quite so imaginary.
At the risk of giving away any spoilers, I will end by saying that this is not your usual fantasy story. From the first page, it is a fascinating tale that captures the imagination. Dream Waters deals with adult situations and is intended for a mature audience.
The characters are so well written, you feel compelled to stay with them. I'm so excited to delve more deeply into this world, to discover what beauty and danger awaits our characters, who they will meet - will they be friends or enemies? I must know!
The writing and flow feels effortless. So happy to have discovered an author so skilled at painting the images in my mind with her words.

But Emma has sadness in her eyes and secrets in her soul that she isn’t keen to share with anyone.
Erin Jensen’s fantastical story engages from the outset: how is it that Charlie is imbued with the supernatural gift of ‘dream sight’, and what is it about Emma that initially draws him in, but then begins to terrifies him?
Jensen sure knows how to develop her storyline and skilfully draws the reader into her dreamworld of portals, dragons and shapeshifters. Wonderfully-realised are the supporting characters, namely Bob and Nellie, who almost steal the show, and a smug-yet sinister doctor who Is hell-bent on drugging his patients into acquiescence.
The Dreamworld sequences were enchanting and evocative (I’m already a fan of speculative fiction that is set in our real world).
Be warned, though, that the author doesn’t shy away from adult content and social taboos (if you want wholesome, plump for Neil Gaiman). But I enjoyed the story from the get-go and especially loved Bob’s phlegmatic-yet humorous outbursts!
Overall, a fascinating read, and one which has whetted my appetite for the next instalment...
