Woah! I just fell in love with this book! Everything since the first chapter, it already pulled me in the story. I just found myself living inside the book together with Olive. It’s like watching a scene and you were there – secretly and just invisible from the characters. I think it is because of the powerful writing style of the author. If it were not, then maybe it is because of the great story itself. And I just like how it engaged me from the first page until the end.
I’ve also found what I want in a book here on Dreamthief. How?
First, the romance didn’t overshadow the plot. It was mild and it was slowly build unlike the characters that just fell in love at a very short time. Here, it started from a small liking to Kull, the Wult prince, and as they went together on a journey to rescue Olive’s godson, she just found herself slowly and helplessly liking him more and it is also the same for Kull. I found it sweet and pure. It was not a liking that started because the guy has great body or the likes but it was because Kull himself was lovable enough based on his personality.
Second, the main character really shows courage and bravery even if the hope she can see was already as thin as a needle thread. Olive also shown sign of giving up but it was overtaken by her courage and her want to save his godson. Even if she was hurt for something, it didn’t affect her real purpose on going back to Faythander.
Third, the plot itself is fantastic and it was well planned too. The existence of Faythander was very well explained and everything about it was just amazing. I also learned what species resides on Faythander – elf, dragons, pixie, wult, and goblin – and what makes them different from one another. It is something hard to give justice because some authors failed to make them stay true to what they are and here, I can really see how they were different to one another.
Lastly, the ending resolved the main problem on this book but it still gave me something to look forward on the next book. Unlike the other books in a series, this one didn’t give devastating cliff-hanger so the readers will really need the next book. Instead this ended in a fairly and satisfying way – something only few authors could give.
As for what I disliked on this book, I don’t think I could give one right now because I’m still wandering inside Faythander.
Overall, this book just made it on my favorite list. I am really recommending this book especially to those who like fantasy and anything that has to do with elves, dragons, pixies, wults, goblins, magic, and parallel world.
Disclaimer: I received a reader copy of this book from the author.
Magic, elves, pixies, goblins, and dragons? Yes. Super yes. Dreamthief by Tamara Grantham is riddled with magic and folklore and everything in between. The origin story of how our world and how the magic world—Faythander—was separated is fascinating and fun. I mean, dinosaurs and dragons, right? (I seriously hate dinosaurs, so seeing such a topic handled in an interesting, fun, and humorous way really made me fall in love with Kull.)
So, Kull. Let’s talk about him.
Handsome, hilarious, a bit cocky, and well, pretty badass. He’s the main love interest, and I loved reading about him. Every relationship he had felt real and entertaining, even with his sister Heidel. I also loved that he seemed to pull out Olive’s insecurities so she could face them on her own in a courageous but independent way, and I love how they fit together in both worlds in different ways.
An entertaining read for those who love other dimensional-magic stories.
Recommended to: New adult fans, magic worlds with every possible creature and a whole lot of world-building, portal fantasy, and well, any type of fantasy out there.
“I realize you have attachments to someone else—someone far below my merit. Yet, if you choose him over me, I will understand, and I will not bother you any longer.”
“Someone below your merit, huh?”
“Far below, I believe, were my exact words.”
“And you feel that you’d make a better match for me?”
“I am certain of it.”
Okay, now that I have the disclosure out of the way, let me tell you about the book: I. LOVED. IT!! I admit, when I first saw the AMAZING cover for this book many months ago, I immediately wanted to read it because, well, the cover is gorgeous! And no matter what they say about not judging a book by its cover, well, I DO. Most of us do, let's be honest with ourselves. So, I'd like to give a shout-out to the amazingly talented in-house cover designer at CTP, Marya Heiman (who is also an author herself). She is incredibly talented and I love every single cover she creates for this awesome indie publishing outfit!
Anyway, I'd wanted to read this book for so long, and I finally got my hands on a copy this month. I was kind of worried that my reading experience wouldn't live up to the hype I'd created in my own mind for this book, based on the stunning cover and the excitement I felt whenever I read the summary, but I should not have ever worried. I don't give 5 stars all that often, but this book deserves all 5 of them! Dreamthief is the epitome of what I love in a book! It has excitement and adventure, real tension and crisis, a great heroine, chemistry between the heroine and the luscious main male character that feels REAL, sexual tension simmering at a slow boil with a potential relationship that develops over the course of the book (NO insta-love here!), fully-drawn supporting characters that were anything but cardboard cutouts, and so on. You find yourself rooting wholeheartedly for Olive, despite the fact that she has a ... "prickly" personality at times. I love the idea of her being a half-human, half-Elven psychiatrist - I don't think I've ever read a paranormal book with a therapist as the heroine! But I loved it, it was such a unique idea. I even loved the fact that just when you thought Olive would find a resolution to the trouble her godson is in, she'd discover there was more to her quest. It was fine by me, because I didn't want it to ever end!! And yet, there is always an end... and I think Ms. Grantham ended the book perfectly. We had a clear resolution that *wasn't rushed* (it's a pet peeve of mine to go through a book with lots of tension and excitement and then come to a climax that is over in one page!), this story was tied up neatly, and yet there is setup for the next book to come. AND I CANNOT WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON IT!!
I absolutely loved this unique, fun, exciting paranormal novel! The world that Ms. Grantham created for us is fully realized, with five distinct types of Fey creatures that are each introduced throughout the book. Her world-building is, in my opinion, absolutely incredible, and the explanation behind why we have two different worlds existing next to each other (Earth and Faythander) is so creative! I've never read anything quite like it. I love the idea that at some point the two worlds, which had been one, split apart, one world (Faythander) developing WITH magic and the other (Earth) without. Therefore, in Faythander dinosaurs become dragons, Vikings become Wults, and so on. It all kind of blew my mind, and seriously exceeded my expectations. Ms. Grantham's first novel in the Olive Kennedy, Fairy World MD series is a stunning creation, and I absolutely cannot wait to read more of Olive's adventures! Thank goodness Spellweaver drops in November!!!
I would *highly* recommend this to any reader who loves all things "Fey." Also, if you like your romance to give you butterflies and yet be clean, you have nothing to fear from this book. There is nothing explicit, there is just an attraction set at a slow burn that may or may not be realized in the end. You'll have to read for yourself to find out! Pick this one up today - you won't regret it.
