Genre: Urban Fantasy
Ready for a new kind of urban fantasy? In Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter a pretty yet ordinary young woman's life is transformed beyond her imaginings when a traumatic incident changes her forever.
An unexpected encounter with the father she never knew and a mysterious man that repels and attracts her at the same time leads her to discover she's not who she thinks she is. Amy, unassuming, intelligent, with newly acquired superhuman skills, lives in a historic Miami waterfront estate. She’s about to discover that a safe location, youth and special abilities may not be enough to protect her from whoever wants her dead.
"That explains why you looked like something from a zombie flick when you showed up in the kitchen. I take it that's what you mean by yesterday?"
This first book to a series (5 books so far) introduces a race of super humans living in the modern day. The sights, sounds and eats of Miami, Florida provide the backdrop for this story.
There is a dash of action and danger. But mostly, the main character, Amy, learns about her special skill and how to use/control it throughout the story.
Also, Amy gains insight on her parents and their history.
I found Amy to be a foodie. There were several scenes where the appreciation of food (or lack thereof) was the focus.
