Mortal and immortal worlds collide in this Award-winning dark paranormal fiction novel by author Su Williams. Dream Weaver isn't your usual love story. It's a story of survival.
Seventeen year old Emari Sweet survives...the death of her parents and brutal assault, if you call debilitating nightmares survival. Phantasms of the crash she was never in and a dark-eyed monster haunt her sleep and rip screams from her chest every night.
Out in the darkness that surrounds her country cottage lurks Nickolas Benedetti. And Em's nightly screams rip his heart. But Nick isn't your typical stalker-type. He phases into her room each night to calm the terror that roils inside her, but she must never know he exists.
Of course, there's nothing typical about Em either. Despite Nick's best efforts, his presence still leaks into her consciousness and she begins to scheme how to awaken herself while he sits at her side...if only to prove she's not crazy.
The story that unfolds after Nick and Emari finally have an electrifying introduction is surreal and magical. Nick is Onar Caphar...or translated from the Greek, a Dream Weaver. He can not only manipulate Em's dreams but read her memories and the 'memoryprints' left behind on objects. But despite Nick's presence, Emari is still not safe. A dark Weaver, a Nightmare Wraith, lurks in the dark woods surrounding her home.
Can Nick save Emari from the monster that has followed him to her doorstep?!

If I could only use one word to describe Dream Weaver by Su Williams it would be SUPERB. Luckily I get to use more than one. Dream Weaver is an unusual tale, part fantasy, part paranormal, part romance, part horror and part supernatural. When you roll all those genres into one you have a book you can’t put down. I started reading this book yesterday afternoon and finished it around 3 this morning. I’m usually a very fast reader but I found I wanted to read slowly to savor the exquisite moments of pleasure this book offers.
Emeri Jewel is a seventeen-year-old orphan, and an emancipated young woman. She has faced a lot in her young life: the death of both parents, a stalker, and brutal rape. For many years someone has been watching over her. I suppose you could call him her special angel. Nicholas has tried to ease the nightmares and her pain; he’s done the unthinkable and fallen in love with her. Nicholas is a Cephar, a descendant of the Nephilim. The Cephar have special gifts and use them for good. But there are other descendants called the Rephaim. They also have special gifts but they follow the fallen angel, they crave power and they will do anything to get it. Nicholas is a Dream Weaver: he can manipulate the mind through dreams, and he can ease nightmares, clear one’s mind, and cause one to forget.
Dream Weaver is Su Williams' first novel. I certainly hope it is not her last. Dream Weaver could easily be expanded into a whole series of books. The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, leading me to believe she has more books in mind. I’ve always been curious about the Nephilim and love the idea of an expanded series of books on the topic, even if it is all fiction. This is a series fans of fantasy will not want to miss.
