Sea of Dreams
Dreams, no. 1
In a single night, everyone has vanished. Only Sophie remains, a typical seventeen year old girl from Oregon. While hiking with her father, she goes to sleep one night and wakes up to find that a sea of dreams has washed over the world, irrevocably changing everything. Electricity no longer works. Technology has ground to a halt. Towns have disappeared. New animals, unicorns, gryphons, and giant beasts for which Sophie has no name, have appeared. In her determined quest to understand and to endure, Sophie finds other survivors. Zach, young, handsome and full of his own secrets is one. There is Gideon, a fifteen year old leader of a group of other survivors in the California Redwoods. There is also the Burned Man, an individual who wants Sophie dead for both thwarting him and escaping his sinister intentions. All have special psychic abilities in common, which leads Sophie to believe that is the reason they survived. Sophie’s premonitions, Zach’s eerie dreams of Sophie before the change, and Gideon’s supernatural powers of perception all link them together in a very dissimilar world. Sophie’s recently developed empathy to one of the new creatures, something that resembles both a firefly and a pixie, will guide her in her burgeoning role as both protector and protagonist in a startling newborn period. Magic is real. Technology is gone. The new and the old must learn to coexist or be vanquished forever. Sophie struggles to understand her responsibilities and to stay alive and one step ahead of the Burned Man.
Fascinating and Fresh
Intriguingly unique story line. Enjoyed it so much that I am buying the second in the series. Great characters and creative themes. Fresh and afflicting. Enjoyed another book from this author. One of the Bubba stories. Descriptive and thorough but good pace that draws you in.
Just finished Sea of Dreams and enjoyed every minute of it. Of course I had to get the sequel and can't wait to get started reading it also!
Sea of Dreams
It was a good book. It made you ask questions like what if, what would I do and would I...? I look forward to the next one!
