The Lost Dreamer takes place in a world where a select few have the ability to dream the future. As you can imagine, this gift is exploited by those in power. When there is a regime change, Indir and her family are targeted and must figure out a way to save themselves and preserve their lineage. Saya is a young girl who is a seer without training but exploited by her mother as they move from place to place. When she removes the necklace that protects her from an unknown danger, she realizes that everything she thought she knew about the world is a lie. We see these two young women struggling for truth, safety and stability as danger grows closer and closer.
We get fully immersed in this beautiful but volatile world so easily. I would say this one skews towards the younger side of YA in tone but the way it comes together in the end completely surprised me and was the great stuff of adult high fantasy.
Read this one if you loved Raybearer. Goodreads says it’s perfect for fans of Tomi Adeyemi but I disagree, I enjoyed this one much more than the Orisha story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thanks to Libro.FM for access to an ALC of this novel. I will say the narrator’s breathing bothered me a lot, but that could just be crazy old me – my rating is based on the story not the delivery because as much as I was annoyed I wanted to plow on. All opinions above are my own.
Would you want the ability to see the future if you could?
