"A wonderful fantasy story sure to delight readers"
Sheri L McGathy once again writes a wonderful fantasy story
with Thief of Dreams sure to delight readers, be they old
fans or new.
Between day and night lies the "in-between" time where
magic exists and lucky believers may see faeries dancing.
But never ever step in to a Faery ring, no matter how
strong the desire is to do so.
Nerys has been betrothed for a year to the cruel Gerard.
She has never loved him but was committed to the betrothal
contract for the sake of her father, Lord Devi. Then the
day comes that she meets Cody, and all her desires say she
belongs with him. Now begins the competition for her heart.
Whoever wins her love will be her husband, with her
father's blessing. However, sometimes fate intervenes...
Cody is trapped beyond the boundaries of the mortal realm,
cursed to only see Nerys in her dreams. She has not given
up hope though and help comes from unlikely sources. Now
she must embark on an adventure to rescue her love from the
world of Faery. Can she save him from the Thief of Dreams?
Or will the jilted Gerard have his own way?
Sheri L McGathy does an incredible job of vividly creating
the dual worlds of mortal and Faery. Readers will see the
Faery rings in the forest as they form and vanish, along
with the beings within. The concept of interaction between
human and Faery is an intriguing one, adding a new bend to
the idea that the Fae are mischievous tricksters.
The innocent love between Cody and Nerys is strong and
true, keeping Nerys holding on to the hope he will one day
return to her. Their dream encounters are full of life and
emotion, enough to make readers believe love can conquer
Lance McDayter does a fantastic job bringing Thief of
Dreams to life. His strong voice can be made to sound
forbidding or kind, strong or whimsical. The addition of
sound effects to parts of the tale lends a mystical feel,
giving readers chills on more than one occasion.
