Thoughts On: The Dreamer's Thread Ep 18, 19, & 20

The Dreamer's Thread

By:  Starla Huchton

Genre:  Fantasy

Format:  Ep 18 ~  37:09 mins

Chapters:  33 & 34

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 ensures the night of the grand gala is one that no one will forget for a very, very long time...

My Thoughts and Summary:
We approach the castle on the night of the Gala.  Highly specialized men now guard the area.  We need to find a way in, and prepare for the gala.  Once in, the sight feels off to Aura.

We need the help of another, Dedric's familiar...a spider.  A BIG spider.  Aura's fear of...spiders, is confronted here.  The gown Aura creates is on to put Cinderella to shame, and influenced with a few touches from the baby spiders she must watch over briefly.

The castle seems to have lost a glow it once had, and a dark aura now is present.  The plan was laid out, but nothing goes as planned...especially when emotions are involved.  The King suffers from the spell that was upon him.


Format:  Podcast, Ep 19 ~  34:19 mins

Chapters:  35 & 36

This Episode:
Aura must decide where her heart lies and deal with the consequences of her actions...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Aura marches into the Kings chambers, even in his violent outbreak.  Aura sends all out, and Aura will have to face more than flying items.  Aura thinks on choices she's had and made while here in the Dream Realm.

Oh, do I feel for King Cyrus.  The vision of him... and Aura with him.  I didn't realize how much I'd been waiting to see Aura and King Cyrus together, again.  King Cyrus even shares a secret room of mirrors with her.  Oh, interesting to see.  I like this, and Aura's powers as a Dreamer.

I start to wonder if Aura remembers the real world?  Or her boyfriend/fiance?  And what will come of the real world verses what she has here in the Dream Realm.  How will that work out for her?

In a meeting, we learn there is an army of unseen size collecting at the border of the Dark Lands.  War is coming.


Format:  Podcast, Ep 20 ~  26:57 mins

Chapters:  37

This Episode:
Plans progress for the coming battle as Aura's friends make a discover about her...

My Thoughts and Summary:
Time to prepare for battle, and see who's on what side.

What Aura has done in her travels, helping others, has left an impression on them and comes in turn.

Friends are starting to figure out what is going on with Aura.  They know her rather well after their close travels and can read her well.
