  1. This book s best feature is easily the original story idea and unique combo of genres It is in a post apocalyptic setting, set in Toronto, Canada, approximately 60 years after a cataclysmic war But despite the futuristic setting, and even before taking Weaver s powers into consideration, it felt like a fantasy in theme, characters, and adventure With the mysterious, seemingly all powerful villain, who will likely remain faceless till the end of the series which is fine, as long as he isnt Weaver [...]


  2. Wow O Dream Caster is a novel based on post war Toronto It explores the lives of a lucky few who managed to survive the catastrophe, which wipes mankind off the face of the Earth Weaver, the protagonist, is a very soft and kind hearted character He is left helpless as his world the settlement where he grew up collapses before his eyes Ever since, thoughts of the disastrous event flood his mind, not allowing him any sense of peace Soon, he discovers an absurd ability that he possesses the power t [...]


  3. I ve got two things to say Remember the name of the book remember the name of the author In another 3 years, the whole world will know his name That much I can assure everyone December 19th when this book hits Kindle online, it wouldn t surprise me if Nadarajah shakes the young adult fantasy world the way authors like Christopher Paolini did with the debut of Eragon.


  4. It seems I m one of the lucky few who received an advanced reader copy through a site where I signed up as a reviewer a long while ago I picked up this novel because the blurb sounded cool and I figured I d give the novel a shot I can summarize this book in one word WOW Dream Caster has great potential for becoming a great series It lacks the romance that girls these days seem to crave, but there are hints, and many hints of romance in the works between certain characters I was barely able to pu [...]


  5. I almost gave this book a 3.5 4 because of the spelling.BUT WAIT it then hit me Canadian author, duh lol No wonder why certain words were spelled differently Once I got beyond that, this book was fantastic.There were many hidden puns and word plays that for the author s sake I hope his readers get it.A young teen might be able to read it and enjoy it, but only someone a bit older with a higher reading standard could truly appreciate it The characters and the plot was what i loved the most Weaver [...]


  6. What are the three most popular genres 1 Young adult2 paranormal fantasy3 dystopianNow, take all three, commercialize it, add a great story line, several pinches of moments that hint at a very, very deep backstory, a list of great characters, a lot of suspense, and a great mystery and there we have it Dream Caster.Can someone say potential best seller


  7. I would recommend this book to children, preteens, young adults, parents, and to all those that stay children in their hearts Some books are almost impossible to review If a book is bad, how easily can we dwell on its flaws But if the book is good, how do you give any recommendation that is equal the book Unless you are an author of equal worth to the one whose work you review, what powers of prose and observation are you likely to have to fitly adorn the work Dream Caster is at one level simply [...]


  8. this is offically my very first review on Good ReadsI found Dream Caster during a promotion on and I m glad I downloaded it Having read a few other reviews here so far, I won t go into how great the characters were, or the beutiful imagery, the well written dialogues, the uniqueness of the genre combination and themes or anything along those lines Instead, I m going to talk about something entirely different Something bold that Najeev Raj Nadarajah did in this book, which hardly anyone took noti [...]


  9. I honestly don t understand why this book is so highly rated YA dystopian novels are a dime a dozen and even among all the riffraff, Dream Caster isn t particularly good.First, the writing style, tone, and pacing itself has a tremendous amount of kinks Rather than a coherent story building towards the end, it s a lot of exposition scenes with action scenes spliced in And speaking of exposition, nothing in the book is introduced to the reader in an organic matter The first half the book consists [...]


  10. First of all I want to say thank you to Najeev Raj Nadarajah for gifting me a copy of Dream Caster thus giving me the chance to read and review your book, and wow what a book it is I see big things for Najeev, and this series I can only hope that and people find out about this book and this author I completely loved it What can I say it is unique, fantastic, wonderful, amazing Those are just some of the words I could use when talking about this book Very well written, with many humors moments, [...]


  11. I don t know where to begin If you re a fan of Young Adult, or Dystopian, or even Fantasy, or a combination of any of those threeen this book is for you The story begins, and by the end of the 1st chapter, it s already taking off to the races Nadarajah has something unique going on here Hopefully he realizes this and wows us with his 2nd book in the series I look forward to picking up a copy of book 2 once its released I d recommend this to everyone.


  12. Was offered to read the book for free if I would review it, but have no connection to the author else.I devour fantasy and SF books so this book was right down my alley It s an interesting new take on the urban fantasy genre, which has a bit of doomsday scenario over it as well with the world having ended as we knew it This up and coming author has a vivid imagination and it gives for a great read It is clearly targeted for a young adult crowd, and being in the 30s myself I realized I sometimes [...]


  13. I recently met Nadarajah in a YA forum was asked to review Dream Caster as an ARC It didn t take long perhaps 4 5 pages before I fell in love with the style and flow of the story The characters are truly believable and share realistic bonds although i felt like at times their relationship could ve used a bit building There was a point in the novel when I had to stop and realize that this was only a story and these characters were only fictional The dialogue flows very easily and conversations f [...]


  14. this story is about a 16 year old boy who lives in a settlement in the future the world is post apocalyptic and no one knows how it came to an end Weaver, the protagonist, lives a life where he s mistreated and kept stupid by his owner guardian Then just as his life begins to turn around and he gets chosen to be a Watcher of the Night, something terrible happens.He and a stranger named Abanel take off into the unknown and they come to a refuge where they are taken in Abanel pursues her goal to b [...]

  16. i received Dream Caster as an ARC I wasn t going to get to it for a few books but a day after I got it, i sat down and read the first 3 4 pages before i knew it, i was on chapter 5 2 days later, i was done the book lol so much for waiting to read and write a review first of all, there was something unique about the authors style of writing his characters although teenagers all had an olden, archaic style of speech the story is about 60 yrs in the future, and all slang, watered down english and s [...]


  17. Let me start off by saying this is one of the best Young Adult novels I have read in a very, very long time Not only is the setting crafted expertly, but the characters are amazing, and the plot is riveting My favorite aspect of the novel was definitely the characters Najeev Raj Nadarajah s ability to weave lol utterly believable characters such as Weaver is astounding Each character had their own discernible personality, crafted through description, dialogue and their actions Their motives for [...]

  20. Dream Caster, Book One of the Dream Cycle, is a young adult fantasy Although it starts a little slow, once this story gets going, it grabs you carries you along for a wonderful journey Weaver, orphaned and under the care of a selfish man named Ruben, has only one goal, to become a guard in the small village where he s grown up In one night, he obtains this position and in the matter of hours loses everything, his home, family and friends Forced to move on as the only survival of a devastating at [...]


  21. An entirely fresh novel with a new take on things Witty, funny, suspenseful, has lots of meaningful interactions between the main characters, and a great Great GREAT start to what could potentially be a terrific series Dream Caster tells of a future where the world has gone dark and cold Fire and electricity are gone and in their presence dark creatures appear if fire and electricity are used people have found a way to survive SPOILER To make matters worse, there s a dream caster out there who s [...]


  22. I picked this book up not expecting too much Young Adult, likely to be mildly entertaining and all about girl empowerment WAY overdone Instead, I found an excellent dystopian urban fantasy world that gripped me from beginning to end.The characters were likable and sharply drawn characters as well as the overall plot kept me thinking about it for a few days, wondering what will happen when the second book in the series comes out.Nadarajah paints the picture of dystopian Toronto very well enough t [...]


  23. What i really enjoyed about this novel was the pace at which it was written The story tells itself and flows very quickly Brevity, brevity, brevity That is what I loved about this novel everything was tight and the development of the story was very well done The characters were very real you either loved them or hated them Weaver is just an ordinary kid but you can tell that he has greatness lurking within him by the second if not third book, we re about to see just how great he can be a sense, [...]


  24. I picked this book up not expecting too much Young Adult, likely to be mildly entertaining and all about girl empowerment WAY overdone Instead, I found an excellent dystopian world filled with fantasy and wonder that gripped me from beginning to end.My measure of a good story is how long it sticks in your head after you re done reading it, and in this case, we re going on a day and a half What made such a big impression I would say the action didn t hurt, but than that, the likable and sharply [...]


  25. Wow I was barely able to put this book down for a second after the first few pages got me completely hooked N.R.Nadarajah s narrative here has immediacy to it that, when combined with the very dramatic plot is incredibly compelling It s entertaining If this was merely a good read, I would have given it 4 stars, but they say great art leaves you changed after you experience it and this book definitely did that Najeev Raj Nadarajah has, with one amazing work, propelled himself onto my top shelf.


  26. See our full review over at Bookkaholic Weaver, a young country bumpkin, lives in a post apocalyptic world and shovels waste for a living in a small village He was abandoned here as a baby and has never left the village But Weaver leaves his post and the village is destroyed With the help of a much braver girl, Abanel, they search for the fabled Shield, a large village once known as Toronto Evil is on its way to destroy the Shield, one outpost at a time the Dream Eater.


  27. Don t get why this book isn t popular Needs better publicity There s potential for big things here I see enough growth left for Weaver to mature into a terrific hero by the final book His friend Toggen is a great sidekick as well Emma Lee can use a little growth, but once developed, I can see her playing an integral role in saving the world, much like what Hermione was for Harry, or Sakura for Naruto.Take a crack at this series You ll enjoy it.


  28. This review is a long time coming I was given this novel as a R2R ARC over a year ago I don t know why I waited so long to read it The story is very well developed and the plot is exceptional and unique Two thumbs up to Nadarajah on creating what could become a popular series.


  29. a unique story that keeps away from the overused things that we re used to seeing in YA, Fantasy novels liked it alot.


  30. A post apocalyptic ya fantasy novel that sets a unique tone and idea that has never before been done as far as i know.
