Amy leads an ordinary life in a prestigious Miami waterfront Estate. Then she meets her father and learns of her superhuman powers. So she turns to her Mother for answers. Soon her life is in danger and (she) finds herself living a dangerous adventure.

A fast paced urban fantasy. I really like Amy, she definitely had character, I also like her Mother as well. The story was original and kept me up way past my bedtime wanting more! I highly recommend to (Urba

A delightful urban fantasy set in Miami.

Young Amy is no ordinary girl. She’s a Weeia; i.e. she belongs to a special clan of people who have various super powers. Amy’s special ability is dreamshifting. Through her dreams, she can visit places and people. One day, she meets a man in the street who introduces himself to her as her father. Seeing that he’d abandoned the family years ago, she’s very cautious towards him, especially as he’s a powerful Weeia who’s said to be a ruthless killer.

I don't know what I expected when I read Unelmoija, the Dreamshifter. Probably another coming-of-age, young adult story. Instead, I was treated to an endearing, rich tale, expertly written, with many twists and surprises that made me finish it in a single weekend, unable to put it down. Boca's writing is sharp and witty, much like Amy, her lovable heroine. It's hard to believe this is her debut novel, first in the series.

I loved the clearly defined characters, and particularly how she avoided us

Amy is Weeia. She doesn’t know much about the Weeia race, only that they are superhuman with special abilities. In Unelmoija: Dreamshifter, Amy is beginning to learn more about her own Weeia ability. As she discovers more about her powers, she learns someone is trying to kill her. To save her life, Amy must rely on a mysterious stranger who both attracts her and repels her, as well as her father she’d never met.

In a short amount of time, main character Amy meets a stranger who she finds out is her father, as well as a mysterious man who attracts her physically but repels her magically. The meetings are harbingers of the trouble ahead for Amy, as she struggles to put together the story of who she is and what type of world she actually lives in.

The author’s strength is the character dialog. The back and forth between Amy and Duncan is well done and gives insight into their personalities that you wouldn’t

I really loved this book! It was almost too short – but lucky for me, the next book in the series was already ready and waiting for me!

I thought the story was unique and original, and the characters were well developed. The main protagonist, Amy is very likeable and is presented in such a way that is very true to her age. The author accurately captures her uncertainty and all the feelings that come along with being a teenage girl.

The Dreamshifter is the first book in the Unelmoija series.

The book tells the story of two young people, Amy and Duncan, with special super powers. Amy is able to manipulate dreams, Duncan on the other hand is able to heal and move fast. Of these two powers, what would you like to have?

The story and twists are interesting. The paranormal-ish stuff gets more interesting, too intriguing past half of the book. I like story lines like this, having super powers and fighting enemies using them. I wan

Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter by Elle Boca is a wonderfully written and engaging story that pulls you in from the very first chapter.

The book centers around Amy, a young woman with super human powers (dreamshifting). Amy is trying to stay under the radar in an affluent Miami suburb after her mother and sister are kidnapped. While jogging one morning, she encounters a man who reveals that he is her father. This is also where Duncan, who is Amy's opposite enters the picture as her protector.

There's drama, fright, danger, paranormal elements, romance, danger, super-powers, heroism, an intelligent and intuitive heroine, father-daughter dysfunction, integrity--and did I specify heart-stopping danger? Not to mention mind control powers, dreamshifting, and Miami. Readers have every reason to leap into this story and make themselves at home--and no

Ms. Boca’s The Dreamshifter is debut novel in her Weeia series. Amy is a young girl finds out she can use her dreams to visit places and people.

Amy comes across the father who abandoned her family when she was younger. He’s mysterious and powerful and she learns he belongs to a superhuman race with special abilities similar to her.

Follow Amy on an adventure as she meets a man she wants to be with yet wants to run away from and rescues her mother and sister.

Combining an interesting twist on the modern world and fast-paced plot with a growing friendship that doesn’t escalate to obsessive commitment in the first book, Boca avoids the clichés of paranormal romance without abandoning the frisson.

Following false accusations of theft, Amy has moved to a new area of Miami. While out jogging she is approached by a man claiming to be the father she thought missing since childhood, who asserts Amy is part of another race. But before she has processed this, t

What starts as a normal morning for young Amy as she heads out for a run along the Miami waterfront takes an unusual turn when she crosses paths with two men – the father she never knew, Thomas McKnight, and a stranger who both repels and attracts her, Duncan Bittersdorp – and her life is forever changed.

So begins the tale of Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter.

Amy is a bit too perfect at first. Then she starts to shift a little. It's not that she goes all evil, it was just certain small traits that a selfless, kind-hearted person doesn't always experience. Suddenly the murder of certain people is justifiable. Oooo, the plot thickens.

The writing at first felt forced, almost mechanical. It wasn't until about half way through that I thought it relaxed. The long

In Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter, one has the ability to focus on a wish and have it become a reality. As a young girl, I had dreamed of having super powers like this. With superpowers, I could go where I wanted and have anything I wanted at any time. My mom always told me to be careful what you wish for.

After reading this riveting story, I knew what my mom was talking about. Amy and her mom shared an apartment in Miami on the waterfront. A typical day for Amy started out with a jog. Although thi

Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter is the first novel in the Weeia series by Elle Boca. It’s a short book, 208 pages, so it’s a quick read. The basic storyline is that Amy is a dreamshifter who doesn’t know much about her ability or her kind, the Weeia. She is approached by a man who gives her shocking news. Then, she meets another man, Duncan, who becomes her friend. Both men help her throughout the book, since someone keeps trying to kill her. I know that’s really v

Unelmoija, do not ask me to say it out loud I will probably mispronounce it, was a great read. I truly enjoyed the characters and felt like there were well developed. The world created was unique due to the fact that it was based in our reality but then adds in magic elements unlike the norm which I love! The plot was good and filled with a few twist that I enjoyed!

Unelmoija begins when Amy finds her self alone in the world. Her sister is somewhere unknown at the moment, and her mother had to go away to take care of some things. The problem is Amy is in danger. She's unsure if it is the newly found "Father" she has, or if it could be the mysterious young man who she seems to attract and repel at the same time. Add all this into the fact that she has some abilities she's just learning how to use, and her world is getting turned upside down. But Amy will do ...more

Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter by Elle Boca is book one of the Weeia series, and its off to a great start!

Amy just moved to Miami, and things are already going downhill fast. Confronted with the father she thought abandoned her years ago, she's not completely sure she should trust him. Then, her opposite, the one person in the world she shouldn't stand to be around, saves her life.

Oh, and she can dream shift. Meaning she can affect things in the real world through her dreams.
