Publisher Comments:

Nola and Tina are both girls with problems. They don't know each other yet, though they will; each is a Creator, with the magical ability to turn dreams into reality. That would be a powerful gift--if either knew that she had it. And this world is hard on dreamers. Nola is trapped in a terrible, abusive relationship with a man she once loved, and Tina is an orphan who makes her living on the street. All their dreams are slowly being ground into dust.

That's a tragedy no matter who it happens to. But when the great dreamers stop dreaming, whole universes of imagination can be lost. And the land of Nola and Tina's dreams is fighting back.

Into their miserable everyday world soars Espirit, a winged unicorn dark as the space between the stars. he is the vessel of Nola's dreams, come to aid her in her battle, with sordid reality. Following after him comes Prince Michael, whose quest it is to find the human dreamers who can save his land from ruin.

And suddenly, Nola realizes that the last thing she wants is to keep both feet firmly on the ground...

Nola has always had vivid dreams and an active imagination, the escape provided by them is the only thing that have kept her from taking her own life as a way out of her abusive relationship. What she doesn't know is that she is a Creator, one of a handful of humans whose dreams and imaginings actually exist in another universe. But that world is under attack, and with only a couple Creators willing to believe in the thing their mind comes up with, the people of this other world must find a way to contact Nola and enlist her help to repair their universe.

This book has been sitting in my "to be read" stack for over a year and I finally got around to reading it. I can't believe it took me so long! It was a wonderful read. The characters were very real and the creation and manipulation of one world through the dreams of another, although not original, is extremely well-executed. I kept making myself slow down and stretch the book out because I didn't want to leave the two fascinating worlds.

As a semi-lucid dreamer (I admit to sometimes losing control or simply letting it go because I want to see what happens) I found the idea of writing a book based on a series of controlled dreams very interesting.
