A solid introduction to a new world
In Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter we meet Amy, who is thrust into a world where she has no idea who to trust and figuring out her new abilities may be the only way to save her life. Amy meets her father for the first time and she learns about her people, the Weeia, and her powers as a dreamshifter. Amy’s father has had to make hard decisions as an Elder and he is both feared and despised for those choices. Amy’s also receiving help from Duncan Bittersdorp, who quickly becomes her friend and ally. Amy is kidnapped and her mother injured by people who want to bring down her father and use her abilities for their own ends. I liked Amy and Duncan both and was rooting for them to succeed against the obstacles they faced. I did like how the readers learned about the Weeia along with Amy. Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter was a solid introduction to a new world and leaves readers with a desire to pick up the next book in the series.
