What others say:

I loved the clearly defined characters

Author Nicholas Rossis

I was treated to an endearing, rich tale, expertly written, with many twists and surprises that made me finish it in a single weekend, unable to put it down. Boca’s writing is sharp and witty, much like Amy, her lovable heroine. It’s hard to believe this is her debut novel, first in the series.

I loved the clearly defined characters, and particularly how she avoided using a cliched “good vs. bad” approach to them. Her nuanced descriptions add much to the story, as does her constant mentions of food that reminded me of Camilleri’s books.

I’m now off to buy the next book in the series, the Mindshifter…

Nicholas C. Rossis, author, Amazon’s #1 Pearseus fantasy book series

Elle Boca has masterfully woven a beautiful tale…


Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter is the most unique fantasy I have ever read. Readers beware, this novel will lure you in like a moth to a flame. Elle Boca has masterfully woven a beautiful tale that will take readers on a rollcoaster ride of life time.

Intriguing, mystifying and the most exciting novel yet. Unelmoija: The Dreamshfiter will captive readers everywhere.

Elle Boca’s novel is the first in this intoxicating new series. I can’t wait to read the novels after this one. Interesting characters that can do extraordinary things and as in real life, danger is always nearby unexpected. I highly recommend this story to readers everywhere. I loved reading.

Very promising first novel

Anne Marvin

I just finished The Dreamshifter by Elle Boca. It is the very promising first novel in a series that boasts an interesting premise about a race of beings with superhuman capabilities. I’m already looking forward to the next one.

Boca does a great job of character-development and world-building

Madhuri Blaylock, author, The Sanctum Trilogy

Boca does a great job of character-development and world-building in this introduction to the Weeia, and she lovingly captures life in Miami so intimately that you come away feeling as if the city itself is one of the living, breathing characters in her novel.

While reading Dreamshifter, I figured most readers focus their attention on Amy and Duncan, as they are the center of the action. They are sweet and I thoroughly enjoy their interactions and the energy between them, it’s very natural flow, but they don’t compare to Amy’s father, Thomas McKnight. For me, he was the real intrigue. He’s mysterious, powerful, something about him is rather sinister and honestly, I cannot wait to get more of him in the next books in the series. Interestingly, I’m not certain Amy will be sharing my sentiments.

Boca asks readers if they’re ready for a new kind of fantasy and if your answer is yes, then waste no time and snatch up a copy of Dreamshifter.

Great Fantasy Adventure


I really loved this book!

I thought the story was unique and original, and the characters were well developed. The main protagonist, Amy is very likeable and is presented in such a way that is very true to her age. The author accurately captures her uncertainty and all the feelings that come along with being a teenage girl.

The magical elements were very imaginative (not your run of the mill superpowers), and there were just enough plot twists to keep the story moving – it was a rapid pace, but easy to follow.

Overall a very quick and enjoyable read.  I would recommend this to anyone who loves fantasy and/or paranormal books.

A fresh and engaging take on urban fantasy or paranormal romance

Dave Higgins

Combining an interesting twist on the modern world and fast-paced plot with a growing friendship that doesn’t escalate to obsessive commitment in the first book, Boca avoids the clichés of paranormal romance without abandoning the frisson.

Containing no mention of vampires or werewolves, and little similarity to classical Western magic, Boca’s mythology provides the reader with an opportunity to unravel the truth along with the character without any confusion or disappointment from comparisons to other works. In addition to this freshness, the magical structure revealed appears both consistent and plausible.

Both the immediate plot and the wider society created by the addition of this paranormal structure to the modern world are similarly engaging. And – while Amy does rapidly find herself facing a high-powered conspiracy – her involvement grows as a logical result of who she is and how she reacts rather than by constant coincidence.

I enjoyed this novel. I recommend it to readers looking for a fresh and engaging take on urban fantasy or paranormal romance.

Dave Higgins, speculative fiction author

“Unelmoija is a fresh take on Urban Fantasy. The characters pull you in and welcome you into their lives.”

So for all you Urban Fantasy fans out there, check out Unelmoija: Dreamshifter

Screen Shot 2015-04-16 at 5.22.42 PM

If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy, and the idea of Vampires and Werewolves leave you with Not another one, then you’ll find this a refreshing story. It comes across as more of a female superhero story, with her, much like young Peter Parker, discovering the extent of her power and what having them means to her future. So for all you Urban Fantasy fans out there, check out Unelmoija: Dreamshifter. Be sure to drop back by and let us know what you thought.

Rick Rhodes, reviewer

“Fun read with an interesting world and very different Magic System.”

Susanne Rieth, author, New York


Dreamshifter is an excellent debut urban fantasy, and I will definitely read its sequel, Mindshifter, to see Amy coming to grips with her reality.

MM Jaye, romance author

I liked the idea behind the Unelmoija universe, and I also liked most of the characters.

Angela Kay

After reading Elle Boca’s Weeia Marshalls series, then reading this book, I can honestly say that she’s grown as a writer. Unelmoija: Dreamshifter is her first novel and also the book that introduces us to the Weeia universe. I liked the idea behind the Unelmoija universe, and I also liked most of the characters.

I think this was a decent beginning to the series. It isn’t my favorite, but I did like the premise. And as I said earlier, Elle Boca does grow as a writer. All series needs something to get the ground running, and Dreamshifter does the trick. I would be interested to see where Amy goes now that she’s learned more about Weeia and her powers. Maybe the questions I had in the first book are embellished in the ones after.

What others say:

A unique story idea and great characterization


The author’s strength is the character dialog. The back and forth between Amy and Duncan is well done and gives insight into their personalities that you wouldn’t get from ordinary exposition.

Amy’s relationship with her father was most interesting to me. It raised the most questions and the author left me wondering if he was to be trusted or not.

I’d recommend this book to lovers of paranormal mysteries like Charlaine Harris’ “Grave” series.

Jen Ponce, author, The Bazaar

A very intriguing, thrilling Urban fantasy!

Sheri Wilkinson

A fast paced urban fantasy. I really like Amy, she definitely had character, I also like her Mother as well. The story was original and kept me up way past my bedtime wanting more! I highly recommend to (Urban) Fantasy lovers and look forward to the second book, Unelmoija: The Mindshifter also by Elle Boca.

Sheri Wilkinson, reader

I enjoyed this book so much that I finished it all too quickly. Now I am very much looking forward to the next book involving these very appealing and interesting characters.

Lara Pizzorno, reader

Sharon Stevenson

I found the magic side of things intriguing. It was quite different to anything I’ve read before and I read a lot of fantasy books. It wasn’t fully explained in this first novella but there was enough revealed to be able understand what was going on. I’m keen to see how the story is going to play out and how Amy’s powers develop.

Overall this is a unique and interesting debut by new author Elle Boca. I would recommend to fans of paranormal, fantasy, suspense, and mystery books.

A delightful urban fantasy set in Miami

Author Effrosyni Moschoudi

I found this story unique and delightful, although I would personally enjoy a hint of romance between Amy and Duncan.

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.

“Loved the witty banter with Amy and Duncan. Fun to have Miami as a setting. It will be interesting to see what comes next by this author.”

Melissa, reader

“What would you do if you could change the way things happen and make them turn out the way you want? What would you could wish for something to change and it becomes reality if you have the power to do it? What would you do if you could make believe do things even if they did not want to? What if you could control and manipulate people to do things and obey you against their will? This is a powerful story about trust; manipulation, power, revenge and fear tied together in a story about a teenage girl named Amy whose life changes in one split second. Jogging one morning she senses that someone is watching her and comes face to face with a man who seems to know an awful lot about her.  More at Reviews

…a well-written book that a lot of paranormal/urban fantasy readers would enjoy.

JP Schaper, reader, book reviewer, administrator and designer of Books That Hook

…Elle Boca crafts a masterful novella of a young girl’s realization that her world is not what it seems, and of coming into the power that lay dormant within her… Hopefully more to come of this new and exciting character.

Unexpected and amazing use of detailed locale and strong characters

Amy has just moved to a new location and decides to go for a run. As she gets near a convenience store she notices a man keeps staring at her. Feeling nervous she decides to confront him, as per his suggestion they find a seat in doors. Already Amy can feel the distaste around this man and knows he wants something from her. What? He announces that he is her father, more questions…

As they raise to leave another man just suddenly appears in front of them. Where did he come from? Who is he and why is his father shielding her from him while having a heated discussion?

What’s going on? Will Amy receive answers to her questions or would that just lead to more questions? This is an on the edge of your seat mystery and well worth reading!!!!
