The tale isn't the Great American Novel, but it's well written and should satisfy readers attracted to the genre without any need for the more brutal, more graphic, or more adult elements one sometimes finds. The pacing is good, it's characters are adequately drawn and never one dimensional, and the plot is satisfying. I doubt it will become your favorite book, but I doubt even more you will be disappointed in having tried it.
In other words, this is a lovely read for fantasy fans who like to be grounded a bit in reality but aren't willing to give up the high magical world either.
Grantham does a great job of building worlds, both our mundane (Houston) and fantastical (Faythander). I absolutely love how our heroine, Olive, can go between the two worlds with no memory problem because her father is Fairy who lives in Faythander and her mother is human, who lives in Houston. Everyone else who does so without a memory charm loses all memory of the world visited when they return home.
Olive is a mental health worker in Houston, and receives a call that her godson is in a strange coma. Using magic, she determines a Dreamthief is stealing his dreams and if she doesn't find this being, and son, Jeremiah will die. Therein lies our quest.
It's a fun read and I'll be looking for other books by this author. Suspend your disbelief and enjoy a new and different fantasy.
In reality she travels between the human world of Earth and Faythander, a parallel world where goblins, elves, dragons, Wult and pixies and several other creatures live. She has a human mother and her father is an elve so she has the ability to pass between worlds with no memory loss and her magic works in both worlds.
The Dreamthief is stealing children's dreams and using them to call evil that can destroy both worlds and Olive is on a ques to save the children and in doing so to save the world too.
This is a great fantasy full of magic of several types both good and evil and dangers and excitement in every chapter as Olive searches for a way to save her Godson and all the other children that have had their minds and souls captured to use to call evil.
