The Lost Dreamer by Lizz Huerta

Type: Novel
Editor: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Release date: 1st of March

Den of Geek says: YA’s protagonists come from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds, and this Mesoamerican-inspired novel presents a bold world for a new hero.

Editor’s Summary: Indir is a Dreamer, from a long line of seers; able to see beyond reality, she carries the rare gift of dreaming the truth. But when the beloved king dies, his son has no respect for this age-old tradition. King Alcan wants an opportunity to end the Dreamers permanently – an opportunity Indir will give him if he finds out the two secrets she’s struggling to keep. As violent changes rock the world of Indir, she is forced to make an impossible choice: fight for her home or fight to survive.

Saya is a Seer, but not a Dreamer – she has never been formally trained. Her mother harnesses her daughter’s gift, passing it off as her own as they travel from village to village, never staying in one place too long. Almost as if they were running from something. Almost as if they were being hunted. When Saya loses the necklace she’s worn since birth, she discovers that seeing isn’t her only gift and begins to suspect that everything she knows about her life is just a carefully constructed lie. As she comes to grow suspicious of the only family she’s ever known, Saya will do what she’s never done before, go places she’s never been and risk everything in search of answers.
