Thoughts on: The Dreamer's Thread, ep 5 & 6

The Dreamer's Thread

By:  Starla Huchton

Genre:  Fantasy

Format:  Ep 5 ~  34:76 mins

Chapters:  9 & 10

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 goes in search of Dedric and gets more than what she bargains for, then meets her muscle...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Aura talks with Mory of Dedric and realizes she needs to go find Dedric and learn what it is he wants to see.   In playing with Dedric, Aura sees images...memories...of an items original owner.  But who that owner is, could cause troubles for Aura, and the kingdom in the end.

There is a feeling from Dedric's questions that maybe Aura can do more than she even realizes.  More power to her here in this world.  There is a chance now that Aura could be open to nightmares.  We are all hoping that won't happen as she seems so much more, the Dreamer that she is.  Boy is Aura pissed off when she learns about the item and storms off to tell Dedric a thing or two.  But when she gets to his study, he's not there.  Instead she sees more images in Dedric's crystal ball.  Happenings and visions are stacking up!

For a brief moment Aura hears Stephen, her boyfriend from the real world.  It reminded me we are in a dream world here and that maybe she is in a coma in the real world.

We meet who is going on Aura's journey.  The crew is selected... Aura, Ina, Dedric, and Gabrien Brierblood - the mercenary Aura had dreamed of a while before coming here.  We learn what a piece of this journey is for...looking for damage from the Dark Lands.

Format:  Podcast, Ep 6 ~  23:50 mins

Chapters:  11 & 12

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 and company begin their exploration, and she learns the mythology of the Dream Realm...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Aura asks Mory to do a very important mission while she's gone, and gives him a pocket watch and herself a locket she created for them to communicate when he learns of the most important news.  The company prepares and leaves the castle for their journey.  Then we hear tales of the creation of the Dream Realm and of the Dark Lands - Nightmare Realm.

It was interesting, very interesting, to see how the mirror spell works.  This spell creates mirror image of Aura so it appears she is still at the castle and the enemy doesn't attack.

Oh!  King Cyrus sends a letter to Aura to only be opened after they leave the grounds.  I'm wanting to know what was in it, and why request her to open after gone.  Hmmm...

We see Ina transport them to close the area Aura wants to be, or from somewhere in her mind, and travel by horse the remaining distance.

I loved hearing these two short legends of the Dream Realms.  Interesting!  And the one of the Nightmare Realm makes me curious of the border between the two realms.  Another important piece of information it seems.

    1. Rivie Bleu, I have a hard time listening to books. And I will say most of the podcast formats I've listened to, I've really found easy to get into. But I prefer to read more than listen. :) Thank you and hope you check out the book if you'd like. :)
