SUMMARY:

While the Great War is raging, a terrifying monster is unleashed. It leaves a trail of death in its wake, and others like it may soon follow. Fleming, a man with a tragic family history and head of the Special Branch of the British Secret Service, is on the case.

The BookViral Review: Genre – Fantasy War Fiction

A full-on fantasy epic, Dream Whisperer delivers a rousing, large-scale adventure that rivals the very best in its genre. Blending historical fact and fiction it’s a masterfully paced telling with Draym quick to build a visually complex tale and gathering momentum whilst ensuring the definitive devices of fantasy are ever-present.

From concept to execution Draym’s plot is flawless, confidently navigating multiple threads with an abundance of detail to create a delightfully dark dance of manipulation that delivers a genuinely disquieting sense of time and place as he breathes new life into well-known historical and literary characters.

With characters like Ian Fleming to Mycroft Holmes and Nikola Tesla, Draym confidently conveys the emotionally charged interplay of his eclectic cast. Each woven through multiple plot threads whilst persuasive well-rounded characterization and superb descriptive prose render scenes that are compelling and immersive.

There are the expected genre tropes to be found in Dream Whisperer, but to Draym’s credit, he doesn’t exploit them to the point where we find ourselves reminded of other stories to deliver a novel which feels wholly original. Overall Dream Whisperer proves a deeply layered and exhilarating read that ensnares the imagination and proves a remarkable debut for Draym.

Setting a high bar for future releases in the Fleming Chronicles, Dream Whisperer is recommended without reservation.

The Occult -why the fascination with dark fiction?

While the occult is a broad umbrella, hiding its many forms under its silky black folds, it’s concepts have endured through time, enjoying many a resurgence through the ages. The term ‘occultism’, is relatively new, not used in French or English literature, for instance, until the 19th Century, although the term ‘occult sciences’ was commonly used in the 16th Century to describe practices such as astrology, alchemy, mysticism, and natural magic.

Life and Death – living forever.

We are constantly and enduringly fascinated with fictional accounts of parallel existence, alternative realities and genetic engineering.
