    Dream Pictures Review

    Certainly witnessing the death of one¿s parents at any age is a trying, life changing experience. But for one four-year-old who witnesses her parents¿ brutal murders and narrowly escapes her own death, such trauma is the beginning of her salvation and the realization of her ¿dream pictures.¿ The first novel in the Carnival Soul Trilogy, Dream Pictures is the story of a child who, after witnessing the death of her parents, is rescued by the owners of a traveling carnival. The child, Jaime ¿Jacey¿ Weston, heiress to the multimillion dollar Weston Corporation, warms immediately to Solomon and Leon who vow to protect her at all costs. Soon, with the help of Jacey¿s ¿dream pictures,¿ an unbreakable bond is formed between the four-year-old and her saviors. The plot unfolds as the two men shelter and protect the child, learning more and more through Jacey¿s ¿dream pictures¿ or psychic visions about her parents¿ murderer and his plans for the child. Carrie Lynn Lyons has an extraordinary ability to capture the tendencies of a child on paper. Through characteristics such as Jacey¿s use of language and her sudden bursts of emotion, Lyons is able to transport her readers to a place in our childhoods where innocence still prevailed. From page one, despite Jacey¿s grown-up experiences, her character is able to teach readers to accept unconditionally, much as she does her saviors. Perhaps the most endearing quality of the novel, Jacey helps readers quickly forget the deformities of her new family, and we, too, begin to see past Solomon¿s hunchback and Leon¿s Frankenstein-like frame. Through Jacey, the reader is not only exposed to the weaknesses of those judging by appearance but also the fears of those afraid to be loved. If nothing else, Jacey¿s character teaches the reader to see beyond the physical and to lower our own defenses, allowing ourselves to be loved. With Dream Pictures, Lyons has created a novel that enters a world unexplored until now. She opens her readers¿ hearts to the curiosity and wonder that surrounds the carnival and brings her adult readers to an understanding of the unconditional love and acceptance that is human nature as discovered through a child.

    Moving and Suspenseful

Before the killers have time to finish what they started, and shoot Jaime, two men come along and interrupt them. Knowing Jaime is in danger, the men, Leon and Solomon Cavanaugh, take her under their wing and hide her at their carnival. They soon come to love the little girl, and are willing to do anything to protect her. The also learn she has a gift. She sees the future in what she calls 'Dream Pictures'.

    Dream Pictures

    Carl Weston planned it out to the last detail. Killing his younger brother, James his wife, Kathryn and their daughter and last heir, Jamie, was the only way he could get control of the Weston Corporation. But Carl¿s plan was interrupted when the tractor- trailer rounded the bend of the wet road. He didn¿t have time to verify he had killed all of the occupants in his brother¿s car, but how could anyone survive the assault he had just inflicted? He fled believing no one could live through that assault. Jamie Weston was too young to know the difference between dreams and visions, and she was too young to convince anyone, including her endangered parents, of the ¿bad man¿ she had seen hurting them. Yet, just as she knew the bad man was coming, she also knew Solomon and Leon Carvanaugh would be there to take her to safety. With her mother already dead and her father dying, she crawled out of the bullet-laden car into the pouring rain. At first, James only saw what most people saw: the face of a freak of nature to be laughed at, that people pay to see. Yet, when he looked into Solomon¿s eyes, he saw and felt the carnival soul living inside him. With his blood quickly draining out of him, James trusted his instincts and his own carnival soul and pleaded with Solomon to take Jamie, hide her, and keep her safe. But, could they keep Jamie safe from her Uncle Carl who also had the gift, and who would try everything he could to use his gift to get into her mind and destroy her. * DREAM PICTURES, written by CARRY LYNN LYONS, is a well-written story of diverse people who find they share a special connection. It is a story of adventure, thrill, suspense, deceit, and revenge. The story takes you into the world of the unknown, where pictures in the mind become real life-threatening events. Each page takes you deeper and deeper into a place where DREAM PICTURES are real, lives are controlled by them, and death is only a thought away. Review by Emma Rose Nero (aka Mary Nero Anderson)

    Dream Pictures

    Picture the world of the carnival, the rides, food and freak show, a world apart. Enter into this place of fun and fantasies evil in the form of a man without compassion, caring only for money and bent on revenge. The carnival will be changed and so will you be by the end of this gripping novel. Young Jaime Weston survives the violent death of her parents apparently by luck as a passing vehicle scares off the perpetrators. But was it luck or the result of her strong psychic powers which sent her 'dream pictures' in times of danger? Will the adults learn to listen to her in time to make a difference? And will Jaine survive the malice of her parents' assassin? With great sensitivity Lyons makes us a part of the lives of a number of vivid characters whose journey through life has been altered due to physical disabilities. She shows us the result of the cruelties and misunderstanding that able bodied have showered on them and their heartening ability to rise above it. She reminds us that we all share the same dreams and needs even when hope has faded. Carrie Lyons uses the separate world of the carnival to show that love has no bounds, especially when awakened by a child. Review by Carol E. Burris
