Few stories strike me as being unique like this book did. The Dream Keeper, by Mikey Brooks, is a stunning piece of work that will keep you reading until you are on the last page, and even then you won't want to stop! This middle-grade fantasy isn't your cookie-cutter sort of fantasy story. Check it out:
Dreams: Dorothy called it Oz, Alice called it Wonderland, but Nightmares call it HOME.
When an evil shifter takes over the gateway to the realm of Dreams, it falls to 14-year-olds Parker and Kaelyn to stop him. Their only hope lies with Gladamyr, the Dream Keeper, but can they trust a Nightmare to save their world?
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I think sometimes a reader gambles a bit when they enter into such an agreement, but in this case I couldn't have been more pleased.
The book follows the story of two young people, how they become friends, and how they are linked through dreams. Together they fight for both the dream world, and the real world in a fight against darkness and time.
The Dream Keeper delivers in every way a story should: great characters, well-placed conflict, interesting plot lines, and twists and turns that keep you turning page after page. Long after I finished this book I found myself thinking about it, and believing that Brooks's dream world really is the world we enter when we dream.
Overall I give this book a huge 5 stars! One of the easiest ratings I've given. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy, a good adventure, and good, clean fun. Look for The Dream Keeper in your local bookstore, or grab your copy here:
