The Lovereading4Kids comment
A sensual and provocative novel about the power and the peril of dreaming in which danger, betrayal and obsession will grip you from the beginning. With a unique blend of fantasy and alternate history, Fearsome Dreamer introduces the reader to a host of fully realised and compelling characters and it's brimming with unresolved sexual tension.
A Piece of Passion from Emily Thomas, Publisher I took Fearsome Dreamer home at the end of a busy day. I fired up my kindle, with no particular expectations, and started to read. By the time I had read the first page, I felt that delicious sizzle of excitement. The writing was superb: rich, descriptive, emotional and impressively poised all at once. Rue the central heroine is a girl bursting to live her life, to feel and to explore beyond what she knows. You are pulled with her, out of her somewhat plodding, rural existence and into another, more dangerous life as she learns how to literally make her dreams come true with the guidance of her icy and difficult tutor, White. When Rue first meets the central 'hero' White, we feel the snap, like an
electric shock, that passes between the two of them and every frustration, and betrayal and twist that occurs thereafter as they step in an out of dreams, trying to find the truth in each other. Fearsome Dreamer is an outstanding debut: imaginative, ambitious, epic, a little prophetic and heaving with unresolved sexual tension. Or URST, as we say in the trade. A winner through and through. Read!

Fearsome Dreamer by Laure Eve
In the world of Fearsome Dreamer, England has become Angle Tar - a technophobic and fiercely independent country holding its own against the mass of other nations that is World. Rue is an apprenticed hedgewitch in rural Angle Tar, but she knows she is destined for greater things. After being whisked off to the city by the enigmatic Frith, Rue becomes the student of White, a young Worlder with a Talent that is much in demand: White is no ordinary Dreamer - but then neither is Rue. Both can physically 'jump' to different places when they dream - and both have more power than they know. Rue and White find themselves electrically attracted to each other - but who is the mysterious silver-eyed boy stalking Rue's dreams? And why is he so interested in her relationship with White? Is Rue about to discover just how devastatingly real dreams can be...?
