Synopsis: Ready for a new kind of urban fantasy? In Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter a pretty yet ordinary young woman's life is transformed beyond her imaginings when a traumatic incident changes her forever. An unexpected encounter with the father she never knew and a mysterious man that repels and attracts her at the same time leads her to discover she's not who she thinks she is. Amy, unassuming, intelligent, with newly acquired superhuman skills, lives in a historic Miami waterfront estate. She’s about to discover that a safe location, youth and special abilities may not be enough to protect her from whoever wants her dead.
Review: In UNELMOIJA: THE DREAMSHIFTER, we meet Amy, who is thrust into a world where she has no idea who to trust and figuring out her new abilities may be the only way to save her life. Amy meets her father for the first time and she learns about her people, the Weeia, and her powers as a dreamshifter. Amy’s father has had to make hard decisions as an Elder and he is both feared and despised for those choices. Amy’s also receiving help from Duncan Bittersdorp, who quickly becomes her friend and ally. Amy is kidnapped and her mother injured by people who want to bring down her father and use her abilities for their own ends. I liked Amy and Duncan both and was rooting for them to succeed against the obstacles they faced. I did like how the readers learned about the Weeia along with Amy. UNELMOIJA: THE DREAMSHIFTER was a solid introduction to a new world and leaves readers with a desire to pick up the next book in the series.
