"The Dream Tide does something unexpected and enthralling as it slides effortlessly between the heightened reality of a supernatural mystery and the honest tension of character driven suspense. Nate is the kind of character who is sympathetic without seeking that designation. The gift that has textured his life since a young age could have led the writer to paint a story that is overly reliant on it, but Schlefstein never allows that to happen. Instead he ranges about with characters who challenge Nate, and situations that test him not just as one with a 'power', but as a truly defined person. There are no caricatures or easy ways out in this expertly told tale." ~~ Ryne Douglas Pearson, Author of Cloudburst, Capital Punishment, October's Ghost, Thunder One, Top Ten, Simple Simon, Mercury Rising with Bruce Willis, and Knowing with Nicholas Cage. more reviews
