Description

A sensual and provocative novel about the power and the peril of dreaming

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...?

About Laure Eve

Laure Eve is a French-British hybrid who grew up in Cornwall, a place saturated with myth and fantasy. Being a child of two cultures taught her everything she needed to know about trying to fit in at the same time as trying to stand out. She speaks English and French and can hold a vague conversation, usually about food, in Greek.

She is the proud owner of a degree in Creative Writing from Manchester Metropolitan University, has worked as a bookseller and, for one memorable summer, a costumed bear for children's parties. She now lives and works in London in the publishing industry. Follow Laure at www.laureeve.co.uk or on Twitter: @LaureEve

Our customer reviews

I received this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review I heard about this book through booktube (the book community on youtube) and what really sold me was the idea that the world was divided into two parts, in one technology ruled and in the other it is old-fashioned without any technology what so ever. But that wasnâ??t really what this book is actually about â?? and that kind of annoy me. This story is told from multiple perspectives â?? which at times was confusing, but it is relevant for the story to be told in that way. We have Angel Tar (the place without any technology and then we have World (the place with technology). The part I was the most interested in was World, but the focus lies on Angel Tar instead. I hope to get some more world building when it comes to World in the second book. I have to admit that I am pretty disappointed, itâ??s not that my expectations was incredibly high, but I was expecting a solid 4 star read, and this was barely a 3 star read. The things I expected to enjoy about this story was the world divided in two â?? Iâ??ve always enjoyed that kind of stories but this one not so much. I know a review is supposed to be all about our thoughts about a book, but somehow I canâ??t seem to figure out what to say or write. I didnâ??t enjoy it, I didnâ??t connect with the characters, I wasnâ??t intrigued, I had a hard time reading it and all in all my thoughts are either neutral or negative. Nonetheless I still recommend this book â?? I just donâ??t think that this book is for everyone.show more
