★★★★★ “This is a great, clean YA fantasy book…thankful for a book I can feel good about letting my kids read!” – Amazon Reviewer

Adan curses the visions that plague his sleep. All he wants is to be normal, not wake from a nightmare in the middle of history class. They say his dreams reveal the future, but Adan refuses to believe he’ll die at the end of a golden blade.

Evie grows restless observing mortals from afar. When a friend offers to smuggle her by portal into the human world, she jumps at the opportunity. Secretly, though, she also hopes to observe Adan, the human Dreamer. Only a glimpse, she promises herself.

But trouble awaits after their captivating adventure and Evie’s delayed return. Not only did she take an unsanctioned trip to the ground, but now the boy, the Dreamer, is missing. Worse still, evidence places him in a sector where Gifted humans are forbidden.

Donning a human body and wielding a golden blade, Evie’s orders are to travel to this uncharted territory and find Adan before her way home is sealed. 

As she searches, she wrestles with unfamiliar human emotions and a sneaking suspicion that the Dreamer was smuggled here for a reason. And perhaps the culprit—the Deceiver—is a threat to them all.

This Dreamer is an urban fantasy portal adventure inspired by the old testament story of Joseph and his dreams.

Sara writes exciting and clean YA fantasy romance adventures to whisk teens away into fantastical worlds and renew their sense of purpose and value.

What is a “clean” book? To me, it is a book with no foul language and no sex or sexual situations. My books contain only mild fantasy violence. Have a specific question? Ask me.
