"Debra Holland brings together a warrior princess in a desperate fight for her life and a modern-day hero who's fleeing his murderous half-brother. Under two moons, they meet with passion, inner strength and a six sense that adds yet another dimension to their world." Jacqueline Diamond

Overview of Sower of Dreams:

A country invaded.
A princess on the run for her life.
A hero from another world.
An evil god who wants their souls.

Can they join forces to defeat the evil one and win freedom for their people?

"Sower of Dreams is a richly colored tapestry of fantasy that bridges from our ordinary world into an amazing other world where love and duty collide. Her characters have warmth and depth that echoes the underlying philosophy of all Debra Holland's books, whether fantasy or historical. Now I must have the sequel. Now!" Nadele Jacobs

"I just finished this book in one day and I enjoyed it immensely. It wasn't complicated to follow as some sci-fi books tend to be, and I was fully immersed in this new world. The characters are compelling as well as their trials. I'm starting book 2 now and all I can say is I hope Debra has book three ready by tomorrow." Donna Renteria

"I really liked this book and I know I will be reading it again at some point when I have free time to read whatever I want to read. Very well written and great fantasy romance book that kept me reading the entire book in one sitting. If you are into Fantasy romance books you most likely will like this book. I give this book 5 out of 5.

"The author's writing is so descriptive you feel like you can see the places in your mind.... The book had mild violence, romance and some suspense. It was exciting from beginning to end. I can't wait to read the others."

    Richly crafted fantasy

    Have you ever looked at a painting and wondered what the world inside it was like? Sower of Dreams is what I'd imagine one of those worlds would be like. The world of Seagem is richly described, gorgeously layered, and troubled when their sea god no longer speaks to them in their dreams.
    Princess Daria is both warrior and seer, a woman who knows her own mind. She dreams of a man so different from any she knows. Khan is a man from our world who is on the run for his life. He takes refuge from a sandstorm and is transported to another world, one where the sky is purple and a beautiful princess needs his help.
    This fantasy world is beautifully written, every sense described so that you feel transported into the world and its many adventures.

    In the tradition of Witch World

    With Sower of Dreams, Debra Holland proves there is more to her than sweet romances (not that there's anything wrong with that!) "Dr. Debra" Holland has long been my peer editor and it was a pleasure to see the chapters of this book as she composed it. In the tradition of Andre Norton's Witch World, a human on the run looking to escape accusations and hitmen he can't defend himself from, finds a portal to another realm. Meanwhile, the princess in that other realm runs for her life, fleeing the jilted suitor who's destroyed her home and has unsavory plans for her future. If you have fond memories of the swashbuckling fantasy adventure (and yes, some romance, but that's okay :) ) of the Witch World series, you will love this book. Or put another way: I loved this book. Loved it, loved it, loved it. R.J. Sullivan Author of Haunting Blue

    This one's a keeper!

    I love books that mix a real-world sensibility with elements of fantasy or science fiction, and I found them here with several original twists. Debra Holland brings together a warrior princess in a desperate fight for her life and a modern-day hero who's fleeing his murderous half-brother. Under two moons, they meet with passion, inner strength and a sixth sense that adds yet another dimension to their world. Plus there are a couple of adorable monkey-bats that I wish I could take home with me. I can't wait to read the sequel!

    Loved this Fantasy!

    Sometimes you just know when you read the opening lines of a new story that it's going to fit you just perfectly. That was the case with SOWER OF DREAMS, Book 1 in a new fantasy series by Debra Holland. It hit all the right notes for me, and kept resonating after I put it down. The ease with which I slipped into this world is a credit to the author. And she did a fantastic job setting up the next book, which is already on my Kindle.

    Incredible Fantasy World

    I've been a big fan of Debra Holland for quite a while now. Sower of Dreams, book 1 of the Gods' Dream Trilogy, took off from page 1 and didn't slow down. I was quickly drawn in to Holland's fantasy world and was amazed at the author's ability to make me believe that this world exists. The characters are well developed and the story left me wanting more. Well done!
