Recommends it for: young adults, adults, parents and grandparents
No matter where you look in this world, no matter what your age, there are dilemmas being faced every day and choices being made. The foundation for those choices comes in part from our family and in part from our peers, colleagues and mentors. Unfortunately a lot of these mentors for our teens, come from questionable, shock-factor sources.

Dreams of Beautiful Whisper, by Tanya Jones, very subtly plays a mentorship role to teens everywhere from a very socially-acceptable position.

Dreams of Beautiful Whisper by Jones is a YA romance that segues to an elven village apart from the human world. Amanda, soon to be known as Amanae, has been brought here by her elven parents as they wish her to experience the Awakening. Most of the story is through her eyes and the impossibility of gaining many powers as an elf. For some reason, she is developing these powers at a great rate of knots, often to her chagrin. There are two men in her lives who vie for her affection but one is a hu ...more

Dreams of Beautiful Whisper by Tanya Jones is about Amanda, a young girl soon to turn 16 (along with all the trials and tribulations that that brings, like parents who do weird and embarrassing things). At least, that’s how it starts out but soon things change for Amanda. When her family suddenly up-sticks and move to a mysterious village, Amanda discovers that her real is name Amanae, that she is an elf, and that she has powers that she couldn’t even begin to imagine… (Oh, and as a side note: i ...more

This book is surprising...drawn by the cover I dived straight in. My first impressions were that whilst it was easy to read It wasn't doing anything for me but then the book and the author came into their own and the story and descriptions enthralled me. There are times when some of the conversations are too long but it doesn't distract too much from the writing. I love the relationship between Amanae and Caelsah and I found myself rooting for them. The verbal sparring that takes place between C ...more

This book is a good read, a young woman finding out about herself with a twist. I would recommend it especially for elf, fantasy, and young readers. Good value for the money, and I'm looking forward to the sequel. Rosemary Jones

A Review by HM Flath

Dreams of Beautiful Whisper by Tanya Jones

Tanya Jones has created a fantasy in a world where time and age take on new meaning, where elves live and where supernatural forces are at work. Amanda becomes Amanae, auras become visible and thoughts can be transmitted mentally. All of this and much more happens when Amanda returns to the village of Eytherfel with her parents and begins her journey to the Awakening as an elf. There are interesting twists and events which become life

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Ironically, when I began reading this book at first I absolutely hated the main character, Amanda. So much so that I wanted to just put the book down and not look at it again. Fortunately I kept reading and absolutely fell in love with her story. At first I found the title a bit odd, but after finishing the book and understanding the title I feel it's just perfect. There's just a few things I disliked about this book

Review Excerpt: Dreams of Beautiful Whisper is "light" YA compared to what I've been reading lately. The pacing was fine and the premise was interesting. The author's definition of Elves is somewhat atypical, which was a nice turn, though many traditional elements are included. I enjoyed that there were layers to the story, and unexpected depths to some of the characters. There would be times when I would be eye-rolling, thinking "Well, that was just what I expected" for the person to do somethi ...more

Get ready to dive into an unbelievable fantasy world of Elves as young Amanda embarks on her journey to discovering who she is meant to be. I was given this book to read for review and greatly appreciate having been given the opportunity. Tanya Jones writes in a way that draws you into the story as though you are a part of it. The characters and locations are so imaginatively well written that you can easily close your eyes and picture yourself there. I highly recommend this book and I look forw ...more

Dreams of Beautiful Whisper is lovely a coming of age book with a twist. Although I found the writing a little basic and at times the tenses got a little muddled, which was very annoying, the story was great and kept me hooked until the end.

The first section of this book was very slow and I feel written for, and at times, felt like it was written by, someone much younger. But stick with it and you won't be disappointed you did. I loved all the characters, but did have trouble knowing how to pro

A grand adventure is where we begin as we leave from the place the main character has known all her life, but she can not remember much of her memory of childhood. and then in a new small out in the boondocks style area is where untold secrets are revealed and the fun really begins. I loved reading this book a masterfully told story are in the pages of Dreams of Beautiful Whisper.

I don’t generally read young adult novels, but I was intrigued by the concept of blending ordinary life with the elven world. It brings up several interesting philosophical questions about aging and romance. Being a fan of the fantasy genre, I decided to give Dreams of Beautiful Whisper a read.

I’m pleasantly surprised at the storyline and attention to certain details. I love reading about supernatural powers and this novel is about a girl who comes of age, and is maturing into her abilities. She

This is a unique fantasy set in an enchanting village, a place I found myself wanting to live. I enjoyed the sense of mystery in this book, it definitely kept me turning pages. I didn't want to put the book down. However, sometimes I found the pace of the book a little slow. Amanda has a lot to process, and spends a lot of time thinking/talking over the decision she has to make. I understand why all of this was done, and it wouldn't be realistic if it hadn't been done. But after her family revea ...more

I'm a big reader of romance and every so often a paranormal one vies for my attention. This time it was Dreams of Beautiful Whisper by Tanya Jones. I've read books about vampires, werewolves, witches, fallen angels and fairies before so I really enjoyed the difference of reading about this world inhabited by elven folk so much so that I wish it was real!

While reading Dreams of Beautiful Whisper I was learning of the legends and stories as the heroine Amanda was discovering her destiny, navigatin

I would like to start off by saying that i really enjoyed this story. The main character Amanae is intriguing. She encompasses all of what I imagine an elf should be. I was apprehensive about the love triangle at first but thought it was well written. I actually couldn't bring myself to side with either young man. I think they both compliment Amanae well in their own individual ways.

The only issue i have with this book is that it needs some revision and grammar attention. Multiple times i found
