   Good morning all , today I start reader roundup and it is novella time . So be prepared to find some great new authors and novellas to get your summer reading challenge finished . Today I have AWRY WITH DANDELIONS  by J.S Fields . 

                           BOOK BLURB

When do dreams become reality?

Orin sells dandelion latex at a no-name market, barely scraping by.

Mette is a princess. Maybe. What Orin does know is that for thirty seconds every night, Mette visits Orin in xir dreams. Orin has long since written the fancy ghost woman off as a recurring nightmare, but when Mette insists upon meeting in real life, Orin's inner world turns out to be more substantive than imaginary.

Along with best friend Blathnaid, Orin embarks on a journey to discover the truth behind xir otherworldly connection--determined to free xir mind and finally get a good night's sleep. But it's an ancient, planetary magic that binds Orin to Mette, and Orin's dandelions may be their only chance to survive the separation.

                       MY REVIEW 

  Orin is barely scraping by, selling dandelion latex at a market . Who is having nightmares of a fancy ghost woman, Mette off . When she tells him she wants to meet him in real life his life is turned upside down and his dreams are more then his real life . So off on an adventure with his best friend Blathnaid to discover the truth behind the xir and the other worldly connection and is determined to free the xir mind and maybe finally have a good nights sleep and maybe be able to keep things down. Also it might be the only way to survive the separation of them . 

Orin is a sweet guy who is just trying to get ahead in his life .  He is sharing his mind with Mette and she takes up a lot of his mind . He is a sweet young man who is stronger then he comes off as . His best friend Blathnaid is a fun guy who is jolly and likes his life . Mette is sweet but there is something more to her. She is tough and along with the guys she is ready to free herself . Each of these characters is fun to read and they are complex for a novella. 

  This is one of those books where you have sci fi, romance and has LGBT and non binary aspects through out . The main characters are diverse and you will like them . The author does paint a great picture of what it is like on the other planet . There are also dragons mentioned . This is one of those books that was suppose to be part of an anthology but the author expanded it and we got a wonderful novella that will wanting more . So if you want to check out a good story and add it to your summer reading list check it out .
