Dream Weaver (Dream Weaver Novels) Paperback – March 18, 2013

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite
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.

This book was amazing, captivates you from chapter one! I could not put it down, characters and plot were riveting, can't wait for the author to come out with more novels, Number one book of the year!
Angela Foote, Goodreads
Finished the book in just a few days and am already excited about the possibility of more! The characters will keep you engaged and the story is masterfully written. The author has done a beautiful job from start to finish. Sequel please, soon!

From the Author
Dream Weaver was born from my imaginations of creating my own 'Edward Cullen' after reading the Twilight Saga. Before he even had a name, Nick would whisper in my ear at work and make me smile. The Onar Caphar (Dream Weavers) evolved over time and I learned what special abilities they would have as I wrote more and more of the story. Emari Sweet came from a doodle of names one night. I knew I wanted my protagonist's last name to be Sweet, but I didn't want her to have anything sappy, or sugary. Then somehow, Emari Jewel Sweet came out of the mix.
Nick's backstory is true. There's a grave marker in the local cemetery that has drawn since I was a teen. So much so that I went to the cemetery office and scoured the old tomes to find out her story. And Nickolas was named from the granite headstone right beside the one I visit on regular basis. I've actually wandered the rows and rows of tombstones to find unique names for other characters. Ivy, Emari's best friend, is a variation of friend of mine...her name is Heather. Jesse was based on a young man who worked with me. He was always upbeat and optimistic, and he always sang 'Run Around Su' when he saw me. Sabre James was a derivation of a guy named Tabor...and James came from Jesse James the notorious bank robber. And Eddyson....well, it tells you in the book where that came from.
The second book in the Dream Weaver Trilogy is entitled Rock Star and is in its editing phase now. I'm still formulating my thoughts on the final book, Private Eye.

The story is both dark and uplifting at the same time. One particularly violent scene is handled with exceptional delicacy, giving just enough information to know what happened without bombarding the reader with graphic, disturbing details. This is perfectly balanced, as the story continues, by the compassion and sacrifice of the immortal dream weaver. The heroine's journey is not an easy one. But she does grow from being passive and reactive to become an active force in her own destiny.
As soon as I finished reading Dream Weaver, I started on the second book of the series, Rock Star. I finished both books in two days. I simply couldn't put them down. And I'm impatiently waiting for book three.
On the technical side of things, this book is proof self-published books can meet and exceed the quality standards of traditional publishers. That's not to say it is perfect, even the best editors can't catch everything. But the story is so well-written and compelling, I doubt if most readers will even notice.
Kudos to Ms. Williams for treating the YA reader as an intelligent reader creating a story with layers of possibilities and re-considerations.
I do however feel that Dream Weaver is not for the the young adult reader, but more in the eighteen and over age area.
I loved the story line, it's so fascinating, it takes you into a very different area of paranormal, a very dark one.
Once you dive into the story you will find yourself engulfed in the story line, as it pulls you in getting carried away on the wave. When Emari encountered her deceased parents for the first time in her dreams was a part that I found myself reaching for a tissue as I cried along with her. All the dream scenes felt so real, just as though you were there, going through each and every dream/nightmare... experiencing Emari's turmoil with her, and she most definitely has quite a few of them...
I found that all the characters were wonderful and so beautifully written, each one of them having their own unique voice.
EDYYSON: is by far a fav of mine, I loved his charater!!! I'm not going to say any more, or tell you in depth on what this book is about...Sorry,no spoiler here.
I do highly reccomend "Dream Weaver" as a must read, take the chance on this deep and wild, dark novel... you won't be disappointed.
Thank you once more Ms. Williams for this amazing read. :-)
I recieved my copy from the author herself for my enjoyment, and feel that it's only fair to leave my fair and unbaised review.
Reccomend: 18 and up
Rating: 5/5 angel stars
Angel Anne Reviews
The story and plot twists are also unique. While I love reading and writing about vampires, werewolves and witches the book market is flooded with these types and it is refreshing to read a book about a paranormal that is not one of those species.
Being an author myself, I look at writing style and love Su Williams' writing style. It really draws you in and keeps you glued to the kindle.
I could give more but those would be spoilers so I guess I should end my raving here. I would highly recommend this book to the NA crowd.
