    *I won this in a Goodreads giveaway, thank you to Christine for including this extra novella and a nice dedication!*Obviously the length of the novel stopped it from having any strong complexity or even conflict, but I think for what it set out to achieve it certainly achieved it. The fantasy setting was hinted at and well established given there was only 26 pages to do so - I read at the end that all of Christine's novels are actually part of one world which makes a lot of sense because both novels I have read have seemed to have a lot of world building in the background that isn't quite explained but very much existent (if that makes sense). I would love to have known more about the species that the main characters were and more about the place they lived (why did they live in a camp? It seemed to me they were downtrodden in some way or maybe refugees? I would be interested to know).The only thing I can really say is that I hope Christine writes longer novels because she has a lot of ideas but fails to expand upon them. This short little romance could've had many twists and turns I believe, in particular the ending had tons of ideas packed in that a full length novel really would've facilitated. More time and words also would be allowed for the romance and relationship between the main characters to build properly because we were largely relying upon being told that they were in love. The novel also lacked conflict due to the shortness of it, but there certainly was some tension in the middle and overall, as I said, it did what it set out to do: tell a short love story.

    All right, so I tried reading this last night and quickly realised I'd never be able to give it the attention I needed to because I was so tired. So I decided to read it today, when I could focus properly.I have to say, I was very intrigued by the blurb. Fantasy books are among my favourites anyway - and I always find books with dreams in extremely interesting.I thought that the world the story was set in and the characters were very interesting. I imagine it must be hard to write a character missing one of their senses, but I thought this was particularly well done. I liked Michaela and found her to be a very well-written character.I would really love to read the novel this short story is going to be a part of - and I do very much want to read more books by this author. There was one line, where Michaela's running, that didn't make much sense - he further she ran, I think it was - but that was the only thing I found. The rest of the story was really good.

    Another story by Schulze that was enjoyable.The plot sounded fab to start with - a guy helping to make a blind girl see. What an intriguing story it was though. I loved the amount of fantasy she managed to fit in to the story.The characters were built up despite the short length of the story and you already began to feel for Michaela before the end. I have to admit that I kind of assumed the 'knight in shining armour' would have a disability of his own but it didn't ruin it for me.The one big drawback to this story is that it is short. I wanted to read more, to find out more about the experiments, more about the village she created and more about her 'saviour'.(view spoiler)[ There was one thing that I found slightly confusing at the end - Dominique said he had heard the village talk about the experiments but I thought he was deaf?? (hide spoiler)]

    Wow! I wish there was more, the end did leave you with a -there could be more of the same story in the future. This was another amazing short story that I found Christine to have written beautifully. She brings you into amazing world where people turn catlike at night and are people during the day. Just the worlds she imagines she describes everything so beautifully and I think all her stories are totally unique and worth reading. This story is a love story with the main character being blind and her love who is able to give her sight in dreams, in the end you find him to be not whole and perfect himself. Another great part I think is that I believe it shows what true love can be and mean in a world. Michaela has a heart song that Dominique can hear and thats so cool. Its a must read!

    Ever wondered what it is like to be blind? Well you can experience a sliver of what it must be like in Dream catcher, Heart Listener.It did feel a bit like a sensory explosion, but what could have been a truly magical experience came off a little cliche. The premise is there, but in this instance I didn't feel like Christine delivered. There were too many times where information was dumped into the short story by way of telling not showing. I also didn't feel a connection with the characters, which is a shame.A couple of things I noticed:19% - 'She'd been afraid then, for (it) had been one of those...'77% - 'Still, he (the) further she ran...'*Note: I was provided an electronic copy in return for an honest review*

    I enjoyed this short story of Michaela. She's blind. But she can see... in her dreams. A mysterious young man has found her in her dreams and introduces her to wonderful and amazing colors and a new way to see life. The story quickly moves along, you learn the meaning behind the title of the book, and smile at the young love beginning to blossom.Ms. Schulze has begun a paranormal tale of young love, promise and some intrigue, in this short story. You will enjoy her descriptive powers of colors she brings to you into the paranormal world of a young lady. Book received from author for review.

    A great beginning for a book. I loved the idea having someone show you the world through your dreams. I feel like it could become a full book with the search for the dream catcher and the romance of falling in love with someone you know only through your dreams being developed in the first half of the story. The second half could then be developed into who and why someone would be using their mental abilities for manipulation and how to protect the dreamer. Great ideas, can't wait to see it expanded.

    I was so impressed with this story--I devoured it in one sitting! The idea behind the story is so cool and one I've wondered about before--could people who are blind "see" in their dreams? The fact that the author took this idea and turned it into this amazing story was so creative, and I loved every minute of reading it! I only wished there was more--this could easily become a full-length novel or even a series in my opinion.

    The story of Michaela catches your attention right from the start. A mysterious young man bringing her sight in her dreams, in her otherwise life of blindness. The descriptions of the fantasy world made me want to fall into that world. Although the young man would not reveal his identity at first, he showed her a world and colors she had never seen. Such a wonderful, sweet story.

    For such a short story, it still left me with such a great impression. This story shows that love comes in many and any shape or form, to all of us! No matter who you are, what you have or where you're at, Love will come at you in the most unexpected ways. Love this book!

    Great short story! I was so intrigued by it that I couldn't put my ebook reader down when reading it. Despite how short the story is, still really romantic. I love how it's both a fantasy and romantic story, which is really my type.

    I was really excited to read this because the idea of someone finding a way to help a blind girl see, even if only in her dreams, is amazing! I like the main character. I loved how everything was described! I just wish it was longer :(
