    Even though her grandfather and her mother are both strident believers, Gwen Rev has never had any use for the gods When her husband and son are in a horrific accident, her husband is killed and her son is in critical condition at the hospital Her estranged grandfather appears at the hospital and begs Gwen to pray to Nathao, the King of Dreams, to heal her son When Nathao agrees to save Sam, Gwen is beyond grateful, but a god s favor always comes with a price.Nathao needs Gwen to be his n Even though her grandfather and her mother are both strident believers, Gwen Rev has never had any use for the gods When her husband and son are in a horrific accident, her husband is killed and her son is in critical condition at the hospital Her estranged grandfather appears at the hospital and begs Gwen to pray to Nathao, the King of Dreams, to heal her son When Nathao agrees to save Sam, Gwen is beyond grateful, but a god s favor always comes with a price.Nathao needs Gwen to be his new Courier working with his Riders which include her grandfather , being the public face to his followers, and being an emissary to the other gods Right now, a popular party god, Bayel, has followers who are changing his image and increasing his thirst for power no matter the source or cost Now Gwen must use her wits to stop Bayel s followers and save the world nothing big, right THE DREAM KING S COURIER PAYBACK is a fascinating fantasy tale of gods and their followers I found it quite interesting how the followers of the gods influenced the gods personalities and power The world the author built was well detailed and impressive I liked Gwen a lot, especially because Nathao chose her due to her skepticism Going along with Gwen s journey as she learns her role as Courier and seeing through her eyes was amazing THE DREAM KING S COURIER PAYBACK is a complete story on its own, which is very nice in this age of cliffhangers I m looking forward to see where the author takes Gwen next

    Fantasy novels can sometimes tend to be written in a dense language, with writers yearning to emulate Tolkien and GRRM That can lead to lofty exposition for tales told of even the most accessible, normal realms, which sometimes makes an author appear to be trying to hard to convince the reader of a story s importance JK Rowling is the best recent example of a storyteller who welcomed readers in with a comfortable, universally acceptable languageso confident in her story that it almost seeme Fantasy novels can sometimes tend to be written in a dense language, with writers yearning to emulate Tolkien and GRRM That can lead to lofty exposition for tales told of even the most accessible, normal realms, which sometimes makes an author appear to be trying to hard to convince the reader of a story s importance JK Rowling is the best recent example of a storyteller who welcomed readers in with a comfortable, universally acceptable languageso confident in her story that it almost seemed to write itself.In The Dream King s Courier Payback, author Patrice Sikora writes with a similar confidence and the world she writes of feels real, lived in, and naturally developed It s also a very familiar worldit is ours However, it s also a world where gods are very real and influence reality One such god, the King of Dreams, employs the book s protagonist, Gwen, to be his next Courier Gwen becomes Nathao s emissary and she s a bit of a spark plug amidst his buttoned up followers She also quickly learns that things are becoming quite dangerous in the realms of the gods and she is playing a bigger part than she expected Gwen is a great archetypal hero, one who comes to her position from great sacrifice and obligation, but who also bucks the traditions of those around her The supporting cast, including the Riders and other followers, play adirect part in moving the story along than many of the elusive gods The gods themselves are not quite what you d expect and they re better for it Reading their descriptions, you can t help but wonder how much fun it would be to see some of them on the big screen They are an eclectic group, who both embody and defy what you expect from the realms they lord over And it s not hard to see some real world religious and political allegories in the relationships between the gods and their followers even though Sikora never attempts to get heavy handed with any such allusions.A thoroughly enjoyable read and even though Payback concludes in a satisfying manner, you will also be anxious to see what lies ahead for Gwen, the Dream King and everyone else in the next volume of the series

    4.5 starsfor me, author voice is almost everything, and it will make or break a novel and my enjoyment of it I need to hear originality and know that the author is not trying to sound or write like someone else, but is telling her story in a whole new way, whatever that story may be I feel like I can smell a fake a mile away, and believe me I ve read my fair share of books from authors who are trying to emulate better,accomplished authors What impressed me the most here was that I tho 4.5 starsfor me, author voice is almost everything, and it will make or break a novel and my enjoyment of it I need to hear originality and know that the author is not trying to sound or write like someone else, but is telling her story in a whole new way, whatever that story may be I feel like I can smell a fake a mile away, and believe me I ve read my fair share of books from authors who are trying to emulate better,accomplished authors What impressed me the most here was that I thought that Patrice Sikora s writing style has the confidence and delightful quirkiness of a muchseasoned pro was a bit surprised to see this is her first novel The main characters had that elusive flavor that only comes when they are fully realized and fleshed out, something that is not easily done, especially in a novel of this depth and complexity, and the prose was lyrical and lush almost poetic at times, and authentic fantasy at other times. Great plot with characters that are wonderfully addicting Recommend for fans of paranormal adventure who want something a little different that the typical stuff out there, and with a littlesubstance

    The Dream King s Courier Payback by Patrice Sikora was awesome I finished it a few weeks ago and am still digesting it I haven t read anything like that in a long time, if ever For once it seemed like the characters were anything but the stock, ordinary typical hero protagonists of clich fantasy lore, but instead all had demons, motivations, secrets, obstacles to overcome, flaws and I don t want to focus too much on it, but I thought the whole paranormal aspect was pretty cool too with th The Dream King s Courier Payback by Patrice Sikora was awesome I finished it a few weeks ago and am still digesting it I haven t read anything like that in a long time, if ever For once it seemed like the characters were anything but the stock, ordinary typical hero protagonists of clich fantasy lore, but instead all had demons, motivations, secrets, obstacles to overcome, flaws and I don t want to focus too much on it, but I thought the whole paranormal aspect was pretty cool too with their mental powers different from the norm in how it was used and portrayed, that s for sure Cool though So often I read paranormal fantasy and it feels like I m reading the same story over and over Not here though I like that there were several well thought out storylines here but it doesn t get too convoluted, and all came together to create a fresh feeling novel that was out of the ordinary and kept me hooked throughout I was shocked by some of the twists towards the end and didn t see it coming This appears to be the first in a series and I for one can t wait to see what will happen next Recommend for teens and adults alike
