CSFF May/June Blog Tour ~ DreamTreaders Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the May/June CSFF Blog Tour
This month's book is 
DreamTreaders
By Wayne Thomas Batson

Dream by Day.       
              Live by Night.


The visual imagery in DreamTreaders is one of the strengths of this book.  For example on page 10, "It was a fierce appearance, even more because of his eyes.  The Nightmare Lord's eyes were empty pockets of sickly, whitish-green, bubbling like cauldrons of rage within his ram's-horned helm. If indeed eyes are the mirror of the soul, then this warlord possessed a soul like a tomb full of things dead and rotting." If imagery like this doesn't capture your attention (or give you nightmares) I'd be very surprised.

Get ready to enter a world where time is an important factor in the fight, but be warned time follows no rules. And the sixth hour belongs to the Nightmare Lord.  And to stay past the twelfth hour may very well cost you your sanity or your waking life.

Check back tomorrow for more about Dream Treaders ~ a world you'll be drawn to whenever you close your eyes!

In conjunction with this CSFF tour I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my participation in this tour.

Middle grade, fantasy
Fourteen-year-old Archer Keaton discovers he has the ability to enter and explore his dreams. He is a dreamtreader, one of three selected from each generation. Their mission: to protect the waking world from the Nightmare Lord, who wreaks chaos in the Dream World. But as Archer’s dreams become more dangerous and threatening, so too does his waking life.

Rigby Thames, the new kid from England, builds a suspicious rock star-like following at Dresden High School a little too quickly. Even Archer’s best friend and confidant, Kara Windchil, seems taken in by the cool guy with the wild blond hair, which definitely rubs Archer the wrong way. Archer must face two foes in two worlds, but he cannot succeed alone. Archer sets off to find other dreamtreaders in a desperate attempt to defeat the enemy terrorizing his friends and family.
