Dreamtreaders book review

Dreamtreaders: Wayne Thomas Batson

Title: Dreamtreaders

Series: Dreamtreaders series

Number in series: 1

Author: Wayne Thomas Batson

Genre: Young Adult Christian Fantasy

Plot:  14-year-old Archer Keaton is a dreamtreader, a person who has the ability to control dreams and fight against nightmares. With his power comes great responsibility, which is something Archer's leader, Gabriel, isn't sure Archer has. When the Nightmare Lord begins to create havock in the dreamworld, Archer thinks he knows the solution. Is it worth the risk?

My thoughts: I have been wanting to read more Christian Fantasy lately. I had heard great things about Wayne Thomas Batson's books, so I decided to give Dreamtreaders a read. I'm very glad I did!
 This book was fast paced and action packed, but not in a way to make it confusing. The author took time explain describe things and events well, which I think is necessary in the fantasy genre.
I hadn't read a book revolving around a dream world, so I found this interesting. The author  did a great job of bringing out the similarities and differences found in the real world and dream world.

Since this book ended on a bit of a cliffhanger I 'm looking forward to reading the sequel, Search for the Shadow Key.

My rating: 4


  1. I won this book last year, but still haven't had a chance to read it! So glad you liked it as I always look forward to reading a good fantasy novel! Also "Shadow Key" released this past December. I have been stalking blogs that are giving away a copy! Haha! :)
