Overview

Koi Pierce dreams other peoples' dreams.

Her whole life she's avoided other people. Any skin-to-skin contact—a hug from her sister, the hand of a barista at Stumptown coffee—transfers flashes of that person's most intense dreams. It's enough to make anyone a hermit.

But Koi's getting her act together. No matter what, this time she's going to finish her degree at Portland Community College and get a real life. Of course it's not going to be that easy. Her father, increasingly disturbed from Alzheimer’s disease, a dream fragment of a dead girl from the casual brush of a creepy PCC professor's hand, and a mysterious stranger who speaks the same rare Northern Japanese dialect as Koi's father will force Koi to learn to trust in the help of others, as well as face the truth about herself.

Dream Eater by K. Bird Lincoln is an awesome fantasy with an Asian folklore flair. Our gal of the story is more than just a regular gal but something much more. She meets a guy that is more than a regular guy. She thinks her dad is losing his mind but he is trying to warn her about trouble coming. All her life she sees people's dreams when she touches them. She touches her teacher on accident and sees a memory/dream and it is horrifying. She knows she is next. Awesome story! Loved it. Won this book from LibraryThing. Will look for more books by this author.

As an avid reader of fantasy with a background in dead languages, Dream Eater worked the two together seamlessly. The idea of a girl having dormant magical powers, which her father had long hidden from her, is nothing new. But having her hide away from most people, as a result of this strange “condition” gave this secret an entirely new meaning. Dream Eater is filled with fanciful creatures and kind strangers (some more trustworthy than others), and rooted in the folklore of several cultures which are identified rather than morphed together. This book also shows the power of love for family and a willingness to do difficult things in order to protect those you love. Koi’s story pulled me in immediately and kept my attention throughout the entire book. There were numerous twists, but never abandoned the hope of a happily-ever-after. The blossoming love story was sweet, particularly because I felt Koi’s emotions when she was finally able to touch someone without the typical repercussions. The mythology was also fascinating. We don’t have enough mythology from Asian cultures in mainstream fiction, so this is a gift to those who loved Percy Jackson, but wish to move beyond the well-known Greek and Roman myths. I recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy, ancient cultures, and all things Asian. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
