About the Book

Sometimes the last person you save is yourself. Elena must take her city back from terrorists. Hana must save her tribe from the wrath of a ruthless king. They’re stronger together. The problem is they’re 4,000 years and 6,000 miles apart. Wounded during a terrorist attack, NYC police commando Elena Labat wakes from her coma aboard a Phoenician boat on the Mediterranean Sea to find a young girl lashed to the mast. The girl is Hana, who has trekked across Bronze Age Lebanon with Danel to prevent a king from destroying her tribe. Elena knows she must save Hana. And Hana must escape the barbarians who abducted her before she can find Danel and go home. Slipping in and out of unconsciousness, Elena teaches Hana everything she can, protecting her from barbarians, a priestess, and a king. But Elena’s family needs her, and she can’t stay in the past. Hana will have to succeed on her own.


My Review

Blue Girl on a Night Dream Sea offers a unique blend of fantasy and thriller.  I enjoyed Fite's previous novels because they were fictional yet believable.  In spite of the fact that I enjoy fantasy novels, I wasn't sure how a time travel dream theme spanning thousands of years and very different cultures would work for me.  I was pleasantly surprised.  The author not only created two very different yet very well developed characters--but, two separate yet merged storylines that felt both real and believable in spite of their settings and connections.  

Fite keeps readers engaged throughout the novel.  I found myself more strongly attached to Hana than to Elena--but, the author gave me full stories for both characters, separately and joined, that kept me interested and engaged from the first few chapters.  While the stories were full and complete--I felt that the ending wrapped up a little too quickly.    

Would I recommend Blue Girl on a Night Dream Sea by Ginny Fite?  This novel will appeal to time travel fantasy fans and thriller fans alike.  The author creates well developed, realistic and believable characters that readers will enjoy throughout the novel.  The story is well paced, easy to follow and keeps readers interested from beginning to end.  I enjoy the author's writing style and look forward to reading more of her books in the future.
