Description from the publisher:

He tells me I'm special... but is that enough?

I live in the ruins, my home city occupied by invaders from the north and my memory full of gaps. I had thought I could survive out here beyond the city walls, but now the soldiers are hunting me down.

My only escape is the man who comes to me in my dreams, Malachi. He seems to be looking out for me, protecting me. When I'm with him my heart lifts and when we're apart I want only to be with him again.

If I know one thing for sure, it is that I am his.

But he's not real... is he?

With his help, I'm starting to remember my past... but the secrets locked away there could get us both killed. Malachi tells me I'm special, that I have powers. But will that be enough to save us?

Dreamcaster: A story of romance, magic and mystery in a war-torn world where love lies in tatters and one woman may hold the key.


This is a stand-alone short story. 

To me this was an epic adventure of love, magic, and intrigue condensed into a short story, yet I didn’t feel cheated.  Actually, I don’t like the traditional “epic adventures” because they tend to be long-winded and repetitive without going much of anywhere quickly.  This is the solution.  I loved the length of the book.  I loved the story.  I loved the characters and the (semi-expected) conclusion.

After reading Last Alpha, I had commented that I wondered if the relaxed pace was the norm for Ruby Fielding.  I have my answer and it is a resounding yes.  Even when I was holding my breath at certain events, I still never felt unsafe or hurried.  I have the feeling that Ruby is the person you want nearby when there is an emergency.  Calm, unflappable …. Is this an accurate description of you, Ruby?  I’ve been around people like that in an emergency.  Urgency can be conveyed without the feeling of panic.  That is what this story makes me feel – urgency without panic.

Grammar/editing:  A – near perfect
