if she's ever going to come out alive...- Night Shade (Dreamweaver #1) by Helen Harper

This is a new contemporary series by Helen Harper, the author of Bloodfire. 

"I have special coping mechanisms for the times I need to open the front door. They’re even often successful..." 


"I have special coping mechanisms for the times I need to open the front door. They’re even often successful...

Zoe Lydon knows there's often nothing logical or rational about fear. It doesn't change the fact that she's too terrified to step outside her own house, however. 

What Zoe doesn't realise is that she's also a dreamweaver - able to access other people's subconscious minds. When she finds herself in the Dreamlands and up against its sinister Mayor, she'll need to use all of her wits - and overcome all of her fears - if she's ever going to come out alive.

"I like the fact that everything is not immediately explained and that there are still a lot of things we don’t know and understand about Dreamlands, mares, travellers, tracker and Dreamweaver and that you have to draw your own conclusions and interpretations. There are many things still unfinished and unexplained and I can’t wait for the next instalment to find out what happens to Zoe and Dreamlands." - Goodreads, Annika

Zoe is a dreamweaver. 

In fact, she's the one and only dreamweaver.

All she needs to do is touch someone else and she can not only see their dreams but she can manipulate them too. Unfortunately for her, this is a very desirable talent and the sinister Department are desperate to use her powers for their own ends. At least with brooding, silver-eyed Dante by her side, she's not going to be alone anymore, even if his over-protective nature is driving her crazy.

But Zoe has bigger problems - vast swathes of people are being attacked by horror-filled visions and sleep paralysis ... and it might all be her fault.
