A delightful urban fantasy set in Miami
Young Amy is no ordinary girl. She’s a Weeia; i.e. she belongs to a special clan of people who have various super powers. Amy’s special ability is dream-shifting. Through her dreams, she can visit places and people. One day, she meets a man in the street who introduces himself to her as her father. Seeing that he’d abandoned the family years ago, she’s very cautious towards him, especially as he’s a powerful Weeia who’s said to be a ruthless killer.
When Amy meets Duncan, a delightful young man who’s also a Weeia, the story takes on a lovely, light-hearted turn. The two of them spend lots of time together as they explore the multi-ethnic eateries of Miami, but their joy soon gives way to angst as they face mortal danger.
After an accident, Amy is separated from her mother and is kept hostage in a strange place where she’s discouraged to use her dream-shifting abilities.
I found this story unique and delightful, although I would personally enjoy a hint of romance between Amy and Duncan. Also, I’d prefer less restaurant scenes as after a while they felt rather repetitive without contributing to the story. I loved the way the book ended in a happy, carefree moment when the conflicts had all been dealt with.
I wonder what the upcoming adventures of the Weeia will be, and I look forward to the next books in the series.
