Night Shade is the first book in the Dreamweaver Series. The entire story is written from the point-of-view of Zoe Lydon, a 25 Year Old who has been agoraphobic, or unable to leave her own home, for the better part of two years. She lives her life in a routine of working from home, talking to her cat, and trying not to have severe anxiety attacks at the sound of her doorbell.
However, events come into motion leading to her discovering the Dreamlands. Here, she learns that not only is she a Traveller, someone who can walk into someone else’s subconscious mind, but she’s a Dreamweaver. This means she can enter into someone else’s dreams and alter them. In fact, she’s the only Dreamweaver currently alive. Going up against the villainous Mayor and the Department, she has to learn which of the people she’s met in the Dreamlands she can trust and which she can’t.
I had trouble putting Night Shade down and eventually gave up trying. The story started off a bit slow and warmed up pretty quickly. I loved the details Harper gave each of the characters and their individual stories. Some of the storyline was a bit predictable or cliché but all in all it was a very enjoyable novel. The plot reminded me a bit of Inception with a savior twist. Overall, I rate Night Shade 4 out of 5 bookworms.
