The Dreamer's Thread

By:  Starla Huchton

Genre:  Fantasy

Format:  Ep 11 ~  24:16 mins

Chapters:  20

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 says her farewells and begins the next leg of her quest...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Aura assures Sira she got the go ahead with her plan, but needs to do something for Theas first.  Yet, with the side mission, Aura feels something tugging at her to do this.  She feels a need to follow this path now.  Then we get visions from Ina of another Region, village.  There was another attack by those dark creatures.

Aura learns how to do more in the dream world.  This time, it's how to contact Ina.  And Aura makes another temporary adjustment to herself to help her get around.

There is a feel of a nightmare in the new region we hop to.  While walking down the path, it feels like a nightmare.


Format:  Podcast, Ep 12 ~  31:44 mins

Chapters:  21 & 22

This Episode:
Aura awakens in a village and finds a new challenge awaiting her...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Aura wakes in a new town.  A town with troubles of their own accompanied with the sound heard before their losses which called when she came the night before.  The town folks fear she maybe affiliated with what happens here...until they learn who she is.

We learn of a new terror in this town.  Wow!  What she finds in the black nightmare!  And what she does...

Aura has a way of making friends and making people a little more at ease with her presence, even though they are still frightened of what she might do.

The visions Aura saw before coming here... She's not sure where or who sent them after talking with Ina.  That is a question and mystery in itself.  I wonder if the Nightmare Queen is, or trying to, affect Aura.

Ooh...liking the cover with all the overlaid picture work. Definitely works well with the title..."thread". ^_^ Here's hoping the next episode answers your questions!

I wonder if her abilities are much more than just giving them nightmares. I still can't really see how the plot comes from the synopsis. Maybe it's because I missed a few chapters

Oh sounds like it's really getting interesting. Hope you get those answers. :)

This is making me want to get into my audio I've had around for a bit too long now. :)
