My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter, one has the ability to focus on a wish and have it become a reality. As a young girl, I had dreamed of having super powers like this. With superpowers, I could go where I wanted and have anything I wanted at any time. My mom always told me to be careful what you wish for.
After reading this riveting story, I knew what my mom was talking about. Amy and her mom shared an apartment in Miami on the waterfront. A typical day for Amy started out with a jog. Although thin, with prominent cheekbones and a beautiful complexion, Amy was still self-conscious.
On one particular day, Amy was about 30 minutes into her jog when a distinguished, well-dressed older man approached her and introduced himself as her father. Amy had never met her father and wasn’t sure if she could trust this man. She agreed to have coffee with him out of curiosity. As her father told her how powerful she was because she possessed superhuman abilities, a young man joined them. After that, with Amy meeting her father and finding a new friend she could trust as her protector, the stage was set for a suspenseful story that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish.
When reading a fantasy story, I feel it’s imperative for the author to make me believe. The author, Elle Boca, did not disappoint me. The twists and turns of power, trust, and revenge, kept me thirsty for more. The characters and their stories are so well developed that I could not decide who to trust and who to label a villain. A great read! I can’t wait to read the sequel.
