Thoughts On: The Dreamer's Thread Ep 13 & 14

The Dreamer's Thread

By:  Starla Huchton

Genre:  Fantasy

Format:  Ep 13 ~  42:38 mins

Chapters:  23 & 24

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:
With her friends again by her side, Aura tries to save the missing children of Lichshire...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Aura is worried of the terrible mental consequences of the lost soul she saved.  Can she help?  Then once Aura has an idea what to do, her and her friends pull their magic to work together to save the rest.

On the way to find more of the lost souls, Aura realizes one of her visions from the crystal ball.  They are coming to pass.  Aura wears herself and Ina out saving some of the lost.  One boy is quite a challenge, both in saving and pulling back to calm.

This is lots of work for Aura here.  Challenging in the tasks to be done and who are affected.  Really great to see the team working together.  More magic used, and Aura has come to learn more what she can do.  I do fear, however, that the Queen of Nightmares might be trying to get to Aura through what Aura is doing to help.

She is doing right, and should keep going.  This is what a good Dreamer should do.  But still, I can feel the worry of those with her as there could be trouble to come.


Format:  Podcast, Ep 14 ~  41:08 mins

Chapters:  25 & 26

This Episode:
As the fight against the monsters comes to it's conclusion, heartbreaks and new information are revealed in Lichshire...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Aura wakes after her passing out of drained energy.  A plan is set and off the crew goes to see what they can do.

Oh!  We hear Stephen.  Sometimes when Aura is this drained she seems to connect back to the real world.  But it vanishes as she wakes in the Dream world again.

I have to thank Gabrien!  For standing up to the people for Aura.  I understand what these parents and adults want, but she needs rest in order to do what they want.

Aura is concerned about the victims, but she wonders what created this nightmare parasite.  We learn of Seeders, and what they are capable of.  The thinks we learn here.  We see the gross Seeder, and learn much.  Aura even receives a gift in the end.

Oh! And Mory!  Mory had tried "calling" Aura in the last episode, but to much was going on and Aura seems to have forgotten she missed the call.  This would have been so important!

Now Aura is hearing a voice.  One she seems to recognize.  I'm thinking this is the Dreamer-turned-Nightmare.  She is trying to get to Aura!  Eep! That just smells of trouble.

These two episodes, 13 & 14, have caught my attention and I'm pulled in.  They are full of action and information.  The happenings and more have drawn me to the story and I'm looking forward to finishing the story more and more.

Sounds like the author infused a lot of emotion into both the characters and their quest. Thanks for sharing!

Melliane said...

Oh it sounds like a good little series, I'm glad because I wanted it to be when I saw it when you had it.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I kind of like the idea she cannot exist in two different planes (real/dream). Makes it curious.

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Oh yes Gina R. I'm really enjoying it. :)

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Melliane, it is. Great listen, and there is a book of all this. It seems longer than what it is because I'm only listening to two episodes, about 2 chapters, at a post. :) Thank you!

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Melissa (B&T) I do too! That's the best part, and when I read/hear the moments of the real world at a distance, I wonder what's going on there. :)
