‘DREAM CASTER’ by NAJEEV RAJ NADARAJAH

My teaser lines are taken from the 50% marker of my Kindle copy.

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image, or to read more about both book and author go here

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

Cheers went up from all around as the director’s team stepped into the playing field, their matching white and grey sweaters blending with the snow laden landscape. Upon their sweater was an embroidered image of a dream catcher, and upon their backs were numbers that individually set each player apart, giving them an identity which Weaver hoped to memorize within the first few minutes of play.

Weaver watched as Cringe raised a gloved hand and pointed, before drawing his thumb across his neck in a slow, drawn out movement. Sinnow cracked his knuckled hand and Jark muttered a single word before the three boys turned their backs and began talking to their teammates.

As this was an author invitation to read and review, a PDF and Kindle download of ‘Dream Caster’ was gifted to me free of charge, by its author Najeev Raj Nadarajah.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Kathy,

      I haven’t reached this point in my actual reading, however I can see how the storyline is building and yes, I think that this will be anything but a friendly match, of whatever sport they are participating in.

      I have just been introduced to the characters of Cringe and Sinnow and they aren’t very nice at all. They seem to have taken an instant dislke to Weaver for some reason.

      Thanks for stopping by, your comment is appreciated.

  • Sounds like an intense game is about to begin.

    I clicked on the link and read the synopsis, and it didn’t sound like something I’d normally read, but for some reason the two paragraphs you posted caught my attention and I may add it to my list. I’m trying to branch out and read a more diverse group of books, and this sounds perfect!

    I can’t wait to read your review!

    • Hi Vicki,

      I am not even sure what the game is that they are just about to begin, but it definitely isn’t going to be a ‘friendly’.

      Fantasy isn’t a genre that I read an awful lot of, however author and publisher review requests, have forced me out of my comfort zone and into at least trying these alternative genres. So far I haven’t been disappointed with anything I have read and I am finding ‘Dream Caster’ to have quite an engrossing and intriguing storyline. There is certainly more than a modicum of authenticity about the premise and the ‘what if?’ scenario is never far from the surface. Certainly an uncomfortable, yet eminently possible foresight into the future by Najeev.

      Thanks for stopping by and I hope that one day you will tempted into branching out.

  • Not sure if this book would be something I’d like, though both of your teasers make one wonder what is going on. I hope you enjoy(ed) the rest of it, and thank you for visiting my teaser. Have a great week!

    • Hi Heather,

      It is always a pleasure to welcome new people to Fiction Books. I shall always appreciate your visits and value your comments.

      So long as ‘teaser lines’ intrigue the reader and make them a little curious, then they have achieved their aim and you may just remember the book in the future.

      Enjoy the rest of the week!

    • Hi Sandra,

      Although I haven’t quite got to this part of the story yet, it is already apparent that there is a great deal of animosity between Cringe and our main protagonist Weaver, so this pre-game intimidation is just going to ratchet up the tension nicely.

      Whilst this book is definitely in the genre of fantasy, it is fantasy with a twist of reality, which should really serve as a warning about where, as a world-wide society, we might all be headed if we don’t change our ways.

      I am quite enjoying it so far and I thank you for stopping by to comment.

    • Hi Beth,

      I really relish the opportunity to visit other blogs and participate in the interesting discussions and features which are posted. I have been known to leave rather lengthy comments, however I genuinely enjoy researching the books and authors that are introduced and making those all important new reading ‘finds’.

      Given the unexplained antagonism between Weaver and Cringe, I think that your notion of a ruthless fight, could be spot on. The stroyline is building quite nicely, but I have no idea where it is all going to end!

      Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate your visits and comments.

    • Hi Naida,

      I am about half way through the story so far and almost at the point where these ‘teaser lines’ are taken from, so the scene is making a whole lot more sense now.

      I think that I am keeping track of the storyline, which I always have to concentrate a little harder on, coming as it does from a fantasy book, which is not one of my strongest genres.

      The more I am reading, the more parallels I am picking up on with our own modern world and society, particularly concerning our morality and the way in which we treat one another, so I am getting a bit ‘twitchy’ as to what the end game might be in Weaver’s world, which is perhaps where the author thinks our own world might be headed!

      I hope that you are well, it seems so long since we chatted.

      Have a good weekend,

      Yvonne
