The Dreamer's Thread

By:  Starla Huchton

Genre:  Fantasy

Format:  Ep 9 ~  36:23 mins

Chapters:  17 & 18

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 crew set sail and she discovers a new world under the sea...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Arua and her crew head out on the high sea, for their quest of the beast terrorizing the ships.  The beast is found!  And Aura recognizes the black ooze as the same at their stop in Marcus's village.  Aura finds more than the beast in the seas...

Aura feels this is a test for herself, even though she's worried of harm coming to others she wants to make sure she can fight.  Aura gives her powers a workout.

We meet a new character Sira.  And find there is a whole other world here.  What Aura has to create, what she turns into!  Quite the sight!  Sira is a...special person.  An interesting family we learn about.  But it could be trouble for Aura...

Oh how I love the sea... This is a sight for one to take in.

Format:  Podcast, Ep 10 ~  24:53 mins

Chapters: 19

This Episode:
Aura visits with Sira and makes a startling discovery about the girl's family...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Sira's story is a touch of a sad one.  Her love, loss, and Aura holds hope for the future.  Yet the secrets of the family history is a complicated one as well.

Aura talks to Sira's father, Theas, on her behalf.  What she learns of Elsaar's and Sira's mother and father is interesting and bring thought back to Captain Squiddy too.  I had wondered if the nightmare Queen had touches in their mother's disappearance ten years ago.  But with what we learn, maybe not so.  But I do wonder if we'll see Ryla.

Then, the history we learn with Captain Squiddy...there are questions rattling around my mind of him too.  Tricky little web weaved here.

Aura has a few more people she wants to help in this amazing dream world.

It sounds nice to have something about sea. I really need to try stories like that to see if I can understand.
