Dreamwater is comprised of 3 short stories. The writing is good, but the concepts are a little lacking. Indra's Return --- A young warrior returns to avenge the wrongful death of his beloved. But is surprised at what he finds. I liked this story with the surprise ending. Even if I realized what was happening shortly before the big reveal. World of Shells --- Young man set out to find girl before night sets in, despite the terrors and difficulties he must face. I didn't care for this one. It was a bit boring. And the ending really didn't make sense to me. The Wolf Game --- Werewolves, werefoxes, and werelions: Where is the line for taking it too far? Not very good in my opinion. Concept not a total lose, but need to be done better.
