There are some great cover designers out there! This designsucked me right in. And while it’s good advice not to judge a book by its cover, I’d say that this book lived up to the cover artwork.
Archer Keaton is a dreamtreader—someone who has the ability and responsibility to guard and protect the dream world. Just a teenager, some of that responsibility is exhausting and it’s easy to overestimate his powers. Whether he’s occupied trying to defeat the Nightmare Lord or sew up breaches in the dream world to keep it from mingling with the Waking World, his nights are more than a little busy.
This book is certainly unique and the imagery is fascinating and vivid. The theme of good vs. evil is strong and the spiritual warfare aspect won’t be lost on most readers, but the Christian element isn’t overwhelming. People who enjoy books for middle grade/teen readers will likely enjoy this the most, but many young adults will enjoy the book as well. I look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.
