Thanks to Elle Boca for giving me this book to review.

Amy keeps on having unusual and realistic dreams about her past which seems to be causing problems with her Weeia powers and causing her to be tired all the time. Amy discovers that this is her fourth power as a timeshifter and she has to be careful not to change anything in the past as it may affect her present. Will she, along with her family and boyfriend be able to figure out a way to control her new power before it is too late?

Unelmoija: The Timeshifter is the very enjoyable fourth book in the Weeia series and so far my favourite in this series. I felt there is more in this book, with more romance, adventure, danger and discovery about her powers. However, I did find the book did drag a bit in the middle. The best part of this series is the way the characters are written as they are empathic and dynamic.

Amy is tired and struggling to find out why she is feeling this way, and she is also brave and generous. I really like the loyalty and love from those she is close to, and how they would do anything for each other. Duncan is my favourite character as he is the perfect guy for Amy with his sense of humour, charm and is always there for her but is not too perfect.

This book ended on a massive cliff-hanger and I am really looking forward to reading Unelmoija: Paradox the next and final book in the Weeia series. I would recommend Unelmoija: The Timeshifter to fans of YA paranormal books.

It’s getting blindingly bright at the top of the gem pile for Elle Boca as another of her Weeia series, Unelmoija: Timeshifter makes it to the top of the heap! Amy has garnered ANOTHER power, so when will she give it up and just accept who she is? Heck, to have Duncan and his humor, and charm at my beck and call, I‘d say I could make pigs fly! Hold on tight, for another non-stop adventure where fantasy, family and love make for a fresh twist on a genre that has millions hooked.

As with any new power, Amy has a learning curve to deal with, kind of scary, considering she is dealing with time shifting, but something is just off. Can she trust those around her? Who is working to deceive her? Who wants her gone at any cost? As good versus evil clash again, who will come away with their lives? Now is Amy’s time to step up to the plate, alone or with the support of her loved ones, survival and victory are the goals, is Amy ready?

Elle Boca just keeps on bringing out one powerhouse addition after another for this spellbinding series! Masterful storytelling, dialogue that breathes life into each character and trials and tribulations that would test the meddle of any superhero. Even Grandma and Grandpa get involved as a cure for Amy’s time travel fiascoes are being searched for. Leave it to Elle Boca to toss another twist in, just to keep things riveting!

If you are looking for a new series, a new group of heroes who bring humor, danger and intrigue to the table, escape into the world of the Weeia, after all, they are hiding among us.

I received this copy from Elle Boca in exchange for my honest review.

Unelmoija The Time shifter by: Elle Boco

5***** is not enough for the latest episode of the Unelmoija series! The author takes us from 0 to 60 in a spilt second through out the book.

We are immediately emersed in an action packed scene OH! WAIT!! That was just a dream, but it seemed so real. Duncan, Amy's boyfriend,is in town for a visit, mom has a new job keeping her busy, and Kat is off to spend some time with her father. Things are getting steamy between Amy and Duncan. They had a busy day and decide to go for a speed walk to a friend's house so they can feed the cat and water the plants. But something happens to cause them to abruptly stop!! Was it the gate? Or was there just a glitch?

Amy keeps having unusual dreams that seem so real, they're about past events but she remembers her mother's warning; "DON'T do anything different because it could change events in the future." Amy is tired all the time, the Centurion that she was injected with while in captivity is localized in her brain. Mrs. McKnight is a highly respected in her field of research, some Weeeia thought that she would even write a paper. With a diagnosis Mrs. McKnight goes off to find her parents to see if they know of a cure for Amy. Mom calls to tell Amy and Duncan for her to drink mint tea. This would help with those dreams and hopefully help calm the them down. Mrs. McKnight knows of a possible cure but she would need some of the exact Centurion toxin mixed with a scorpion toxin. The threesome, Amy, Duncan and Kat, head for Cambodia to search for the Centurion plant that is very rare. And there are different colors of the toxins from an each individual plant. They have several adventures during their stay in Cambodia but also get to site see. Visiting temples that have detailed intricate work is beautiful.

This book does leave you with a huge cliffhanger. I must say I've gotten so engrossed in the lives of the characters that I cried for the tragedy at the end. Yes, I said it I CRIED!!!

With this being said, I still recommend this book and the whole series of the Weeia story to anyone that enjoys urban fantasy, action, romance, suspence or paranormal.

Unelmoija: The Timeshifter (Weeia #4) by Elle Boca

In the fourth installment of the Weeia series Amy finds herself with a new power. Also things are not quite right in her life. She must be careful on what she does, so she can get back to the present. What is wrong with her? Will she be able to find out?

With the help of her man Duncan and her family, they try to figure out what is going on with Amy and how to "fix" her. They face many dangers, who can be trusted, who can not? One thing is for sure, her friends and family will stand by her no matter what, and they will stop at nothing to help Amy.

A fast paced adventure/fantasy. I loved Amy in the previous books, and I still love her now. I really enjoyed the originality, and the new developments in Amy's life. This is not just a fantasy, but a story of friendship, family and love. I highly recommend Unelmoija: The Timeshifter to those who love a great fantasy/adventure/romance. I was hooked from the first page until the last!

Unelmoija: The Timeshifter: Elle Boca

What would you do if you could shift back and forth in time from the past to the present instead of in chronological order? What would you do if when you went back in time you relived events in your life that brought created dangerous situations and your other talents or skills were frozen and you could not control the outcome until the event was over? Amy has always been able to control her Dreamshifting and Spirtshifting but at the present she is being stalked and followed. Stopping her to show her a photo and realizing that this has to be some type of trap, Amy finds herself at his mercy but is this real? As the scene continues Amy learns just why she has been captured, the relation to her mother and the next thing she knows she is waking up in her bed with the alarm clock going off. Recalling several incidents and the death of a good friend named Ernie at the hands of a rogue Elder, Amy begins to analyze what is happening to her but comes to no conclusion as yet. Amy might appear to be human and live with humans but she and her family are Weeia with abilities that most humans would love to have. She can dreamshift and control her dreams and the outcome most of the time. She can Spiritshift, she can mentally speak to someone and communicate without words, she can feel someone’s emotions and she can even heal someone wounded.

Finding herself having lunch with her friend Krissa she begins to wonder if she has not gotten another talent similar to her friends that of being able to have an Emotional Henki. Asking if her friend controls it or is it anything you touch that she can get impressions of someone’s whereabouts or actions. How amazing! Krissa explains that she can pick up emotions people leave on objects they own or touch. This allows her to understand people, her enemies and much more. But, Amy’s powers are out of whack and she begins to wonder if she did not touch something in the Council Chamber when questioned in the past about the death of her friend at the concert, if it triggered or set off something in her Emotional or Mental Henki! But, things continue to spiral out of control and the dreams turn into nightmares and she finally explains the situation to her mother.

Dreamshifting allows her to have dreams allow them to become realities and then decide when they ended. She can create or change the objects used. Thinking of what happened in her present dream and how it related to her father really shook her up and the only way to resolve the issue would be to discuss it with her mother. Each time she had a dream it would lead her back to the present and although she focused on her daily routine Amy realized that something was off.

Amy and her mother discuss the many possibilities of what happened to her and when they narrow it down to something that one of the Elder’s might have injected her with which cause could cause her death if an antidote is not found. But, first they need to find the source, which is a Centurion Plant, which in this case is poisonous and has overtaken not only her body but also her brain. Centurion Plant according to Dictionary.com is: any New World plant of the genus Agave, requiring many years to mature and blooming once before dying, especially the widely cultivated species A. americana, having leaves in a basal rosette and a tall flower stalk. Agave americana, native to tropical America but naturalized elsewhere, having very large spiny greyish leaves and greenish flowers on a tall fleshy stalk. It blooms only once in its life, after 10 to 30 years (formerly thought to flower after a century) also called American aloe.” But, can they find it and where it is grown and who might have it before it’s too late? One more dream about living alone, her mother missing and being thrown out of her living quarters brings it all to light as she realizes that something from the past is controlling her present. Spiritshifting might be good but what happened when she was questioned might have allowed them to inject her with this plant. MRI’s, scans and tests revealed the truth.

With the help of her mother, her sister Kat and the appearance of her boyfriend Duncan, Amy just might be able to put the pieces together but first they have to decide where to begin and how.

With her mother traveling to find out what the cause of her problems are and with Duncan and her sister Kat at her side Amy hoped that she would be safe. Beaches, museums, diversions and hoping to find a way to control her timeshifting, her mother spoke with her grandparents and the answer seemed to be mint tea or at least for now. But, when things begin to spiral even more they realize that they might have to travel far and wide to another country to find the centurion plant, where it is grown and who might have it and why.

As Duncan, Kat and Amy decide to go on an Organized Swim to try and relax and rid her of the tension Duncan recounts for readers that there are four Weeia Henki, that most of us would like to have: Emotional, Material, Mental and Temporal. Amy has all four and they are stronger than most people’s. So, would they neutralize the centurion and just how would the mint tea help as a temporary fix? Centurion from another plant or another batch would not blend. Amy needs to be injected with the right protein or she would lose the delicate balance she found. This was really frightening to all of them and they needed to find the exact batch and the right color, which is purple. Each of the strains of this plant has its own specific color based on the color of tits flower. Their problem is they do not know which one is in Amy! As Amy recounts what happened when she was questioned by the Elders they realize answer might be in Asia.

Cambodia was the destination and the author takes readers inside this country, the museums, temples, the hotels, restaurants and more giving readers a guided tour throughout this country. Visiting the nurseries was first on their agenda and then going to the capital Siem Reap, their cultural capital was part of their itinerary and because Kat could communicate with them in their language made it easier for them to get around. The author relates that the capital was quite a tourist attraction and hoping to find centurion their top priority. Meeting different families, staying with one in particular and sharing their customs and the food helped to bridge the gap and prove that people of different cultures and with differences can get along. The history of the country is quite interesting and the many places the author relates to makes you want to visit on your own. But, when Amy senses Weeia and they find out who and why they are there, the answers they hope to find might not be the ones that will help them with centurion.

As their time in Cambodia draws to a close and the disappointment sets in they find their way back home and just where and how they find the plant will surprise readers as author Elle Boca creates a twist and unexpected surprise that no one will see coming. Added in before they leave the head of this family or Weeia family gives Duncan a special pendant that he is supposed to wear all of the time not stating what will happen if he does not.

But, the past is about to come into the present and just when they think they have the centurion and are home free the harsh true is presented and their rate of survival diminished. Shots, injuries, danger and someone just might not make it out alive. Will Amy be able to use her healing powers to save someone close to her? When the final count is assessed who will be left to carry on? Will she become Unelmoija and at what cost? An ending so explosive and powerful you just won’t believe the end result.

Once again author Elle Boca brings to light the issues of family loyalty, friendship, honest, power, greed, revenge and hate in order to create a plot that will keep you riveted to the printed page and wondering: Is this the last we will hear of Amy, Duncan, Kat and Mom or is there more to come?

Unelmoija: The Timeshifter by Elle Boca is the fourth installment in the Weeia Series and one that does not disappoint.

Up to this point, Amy, Kat, Amy's mom and Amy's boyfriend, Duncan are thrown into life and death situations. Through all of it, they miraculously survive using their Weeia abilities.

This fourth book begins with Amy's abilities not working quite right. Duncan and Amy's family are very worried about Amy and will go to the ends of the Earth to find a cure for her ills. If you have read the series up to now, you would know that Amy was poisoned with centurion in the first book and it is now rearing it's ugly head once again. The poison is concentrated in her brain, so her mom thinks that it is causing some of her issues.

In the search for a remedy, Duncan, Kat and Amy travel to Cambodia and meet up with other Weeia. Of course, everything is not as it seems and there are Weeia bad guys involved. The group returns to Miami a bit deflated, but hopeful that Amy will finally get better.

Near the end of the book, the world is turned upside down for the group and their lives are endangered once again. But, this time around, will one of them not come back from the brink of death? The answers to this and more are revealed, along with many more new questions being raised about Amy's newest and most shocking ability. The ending will surprise you and will tug at your heartstrings!

If you love urban fantasy, The Timeshifter is the perfect read and is filled with fantasy, adventure and romance along with comic relief in many places. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

'Unelmoija: The Timeshifter' is the fourth book in Boca's Weeia series about a young woman called Amy, who is super human and has been developing new abilities.

The book gets off to a thrilling start as Amy's adventure continues. Her latest ability is an intriguing one as it soon becomes clear that her time-shifting episodes could alter the past. Her romance with Duncan is also a big part of this book and this side of things is very well handled.

The book had a slow-paced middle after a thrilling start but it picks up the pace again towards the end, with suspense growing towards the conclusion. The ending was very tense and shocking this time around. I can't wait to see how it all ends now and I hope the last book will be coming out soon.

Overall this is another enjoyable read with an interesting story and great characters. Recommended to fans of paranormal romance!

Boca continues to mix plausible modern-day characters with a magical world that doesn’t rely on stereotypes, to create urban fantasy that is both fresh and accessible.

This novel is the fourth in the Weeia series. Spoilers ahoy!

Amy’s past is literally catching up with her: sometimes when sleeping or under great stress, she finds herself back at significant moments in her life; she has her memories of what happened to help her navigate these revisits, but Weeia legend says that if something goes wrong a time traveller can become lost forever. And when she is in her own time, her powers are erratic and her health deteriorating.

The book opens with Amy already within the first relived event; but without any indication that it is the past. While this does create a sense of confusion for the reader that might enhance their sympathy for Amy’s struggle to understand what’s happening, the lack of flags as to when this is might leave some readers feeling denied facts the narrator knows.

This sense of concealed facts occurs occasionally throughout the book. At one point Amy refers to a movie as one she liked staring one of her favourite actors rather than using the name of either the film or actor; with no reason she wouldn’t use the names, this has an air of a riddle or concealment for the sake of it. However, for the most part, the narration seems trustworthy so this is not a major issue.

Ironically, Amy’s narration is sometimes too objective. Rather than describing what people are doing and leaving it to the reader to infer intent or emotion, she often provides a statement of what a character is thinking or feeling followed by her reason for that. This, combined with filtering language such as “She saw that…”, distances the reader slightly from the action, making the story potentially less engaging for those who enjoy trying to guess the answers to mysteries.

Although the plot does have both a ticking clock from Amy’s deteriorating health and a sense of threat from antagonists in the present and past, both Amy’s attempts to maintain a past that leads to her present and the overall investigative nature of the plot give the novel a slower, less active feel than previous volumes. This is compounded by Amy reacting to time-shifting rather than gaining a new advantage in the way she has during previous books.

Fortunately, Amy remains consistent with previous books and strives to overcome her new situation, making it likely that readers who have read this far will care enough about her survival to want to find out what happens.

The supporting cast are similarly both consistent and fully involved in events, adding further interest for those who have read the previous novels.

While this book does contain a complete arc from challenge to resolution, many of the events do rely on past matters that do not feature in Amy’s time-shifts; thus, this novel is unlikely to make a good entry point for new readers.

Overall, I enjoyed this novel. I recommend it to readers who enjoyed previous volumes.

I received a free copy from the author with a request for a fair review.

One thing I love about this series is no matter how much time I spend away from it I can always just right back into this world. It always welcomes me back with a magic filled hug. This one, just like all the others is very good. It's filled with action, magic and even has some cute love scenes.

Amy finds out that she might have a new ability and this one may be dangerous. She starts having very vivid dreams about her past but the only difference is when she changes something it really changes her past. So she must be careful not to change her future while her mom, sister and boyfriend race to figure out what is going on with her.

I always love going back to the world of the Weeia. Okay I also kind of wish I was apart of this magical group of people. The more I read into this series the more hooked I get. I need to know what the heck happens next especially after that ending! I can't believe Elle Boca did that to me but it's okay I forgive her since she gave me so many adorable Amy and Duncan scenes.

This book is a good blend of action and cuteness. Even though it has serious moments with Amy and her brain situation (nope I'm not telling) it also has cute moments like Amy and Duncan swimming with dolphins. I love that because I would probably have a heart attack trying to keep up with this book if it was full to the brim with nothing but action.

I highly recommend this book for anyone that loves magic, love, and action. It won't disappoint!

A new adult urban fantasy that will captivate and intrigue readers. While this is the fourth installment in the Weeia series, it also serves as a standalone because it seamlessly catches the reader up to events that happened in the previous novels. Due to a centurion overdose that was administered to Amy in the past, her weeia abilities are on the fritz; she's more tired than usual and has suddenly been able to timeshift in her sleep. The timeshifting is a HUGE problem for Amy because she can't control it and if anything happens out of the ordinary it could screw up her entire future. She has to find a cure for the centurion lodged in her brain or she'll end up screwing her timeline and taking her friends and family with her. Determined to find the source of centurion and maybe a cure, Amy, her sister, and her boyfriend head to Cambodia to try and put a stop to their predicament. Even though time is pressing the trio find time for food, fun, and lots of sightseeing while on their quest. Will they find what they need and will they find it in time? Read to find out more!

For fans of fantasy and adventure.

I received this book free from the author in return for my honest, unbiased review.

This was the best book in the series for me! The writing is so fantastic and realistic like a movie playing out in front of me. I loved the main character Amy and following her throughout the story was fun! There is so much action in this book it make for a fast enjoyable read! I loved all the aspects of this book from the action, to the gripping mystery, and exciting romance. Yeah this was a great read! I would recommend to anyone who loves paranormal, romance, and/or mystery books! I do not feel like you have to read the whole series, if your not a series person, each book stands on its own and reading anyone and not all will not leave you feeling like your missing something. If you read the whole series though you'll get to know the characters better and get other great mysteries. So go out and read this book or any book in the series today!!
