Thoughts On: The Dreamer's Thread, ep 3 & 4

The Dreamer's Thread

By:  Starla Huchton

Genre:  Fantasy

Format:  Ep 3 ~  34:27 mins

Chapters:  5, 6, & 7

Book Synopsis:
Everyone Dreams.  But what would you do if you suddenly found out that you were one of the few who creates dreams for the whole world?  Would you use your power to harness the light and weave it into beautiful tapestries of magic and wonder, or would you fall prey to the seductive siren song of darkness and nightmares?  For artist Aura Mayville, this becomes a reality as she is ripped from her life.

This Episode:
Aura makes a new friend and eavesdrops on something she wasn't meant to hear...

My Thoughts and Summary:
We find our selves in the council meeting with the facial expressions implying the situation is rather serious.  We do learn, darkness on the other side of the land, where the lord of Nighmares rules, is now expanding and no one knows why.

Oh the creatures that are here in the meeting!  Vampire, Centaur  Mermaid, Elves, Rock people, Electronic people, Magicians, and so so much more.

Mm, I do like Aura.  She is smart and has taken in a lot in her short twenty-five years of life.  She tries to explain the 'evils' of our world, however it seems to be subjective to the eye of the beholder.  And the Kind realizes there are many gray areas.  Then, Aura has a strange feeling from the king's kindness.  Hmm, maybe a spark here?  We'll have to keep going to see.

Aura learns more of what she can do with her dreaming.  And in looking to go for a midnight snack of that delicious pudding from dinner, she meets a new friend.  Mory, the unofficial watch mouse. lol.  He's cute.  But we learn a dark history of a fight in the past and a dreamer who once was to help.  In this chat something strikes Aura and she wants to talk to the king about it, but will wait until morning.

However, by morning Aura has over heard something very important, and dangerous to the light land.  She very much needs to get to the King!

I'm curious who this woman (Mistress) is and what else Aura is thinking.

Chapters:  7 & 8

Book Synopsis:
Everyone Dreams.  But what would you do if you suddenly found out that you were one of the few who creates dreams for the whole world?  Would you use your power to harness the light and weave it into beautiful tapestries of magic and wonder, or would you fall prey to the seductive siren song of darkness and nightmares?  For artist Aura Mayville, this becomes a reality as she is ripped from her life.

This Episode:
Aura tells the Council about her plans and meets an interesting new character...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Aura makes her way to the king (still in night clothes) through his guards, telling him there is an enemy in the castle.  The council meeting reconvenes and Aura shares more details of a few council members.  One seems a bit curious in dress.  Aura shares her plan of getting to see more and learn more.

With the kindness of one council member we get a view of the lands and how the beings here can move about.  We also get a touch of the darklands and barrier from the newly appointed leaders of intelligence and spies.

We also meet Dedrick, the kings adviser and seer.  Dedrick has a sense of...hostility toward Aura, and mentions he is not afraid of her as a dreamer.  Dedrick wants proof, of some sort, from Aura.  But what?  We are not sure yet.  The King suggests Aura follow him to find out, but the frustration and a complaining stomach makes up her mind where she'll go.

Now I'm curious as to what Dedrick wants her to do or show.  And, now, what will come of keeping him waiting or not going at all?  Will the King even be mad at her and see her in a different light?

Curious.  And enjoying the story.  Wanting to learn more!
