A Dream Come True...
Can Be a Real Nightmare
Archer Keaton has been a Dreamtreader for several years and on occasion been known to work around the rules to get the job done. But his past is about to catch up to him at the worst possible time - the Rift has torn through into the Waking World and reality and the dream have mixed together. But can Archer and his fellow Dreamtreaders repair the damage before it becomes irreversible?
But Archer has an enemy working against him even more dangerous than the recently defeated Nightmare Lord. And his one-time-best friend Kara has most certainly betrayed him both within the Dream and without.
Archer, Kaylie, and Nick are about to engage in a war for the waking world and time is running out. With some unexpected allies they just may have a chance to reverse the Rift, but there is a cost to just such an undertaking but the survival of the world depends on them.
The War for the Waking World is the concluding book in the Dreamtreaders series and it is an adventure packed book that will keep you guessing at the ultimate outcome until the very end. This is a series that you must read in order to 1) follow the series and 2) to truly know who the various characters are. This book is targeted to the juvenile audience but fans of fantasy will appreciate this story and its complexity.
I would recommend both the book and the series for ages 12 and up (or younger readers who are advanced readers). Perfect if you're looking for a book to occupy the kids when they get bored with our wacky winter weather. Would also be a great family read-aloud book for some good quality family time.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher through the BookLook blogger program in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book:
In this fast-paced conclusion to the exciting fantasy trilogy, the dream world and the waking world bleed into each other when a rift is formed between the two. People in the real world suddenly find their waking lives resemble their wildest dreams. Now it’s up to Archer and his fellow Dreamtreaders to race to reverse the rift before too much damage is done and to battle Archer’s ex-best friend, Kara, who sits on the throne of the Nightmare Lord. Kara is building an army of her own. Will Archer be strong enough to stand against her?
