A high-concept, fantastical espionage novel set in a world where dreams are the ultimate form of political intelligence.

Livia is a dreamstrider. She can inhabit a subject's body while they are sleeping and, for a short time, move around in their skin. She uses her talent to work as a spy for the Barstadt Empire. But her partner, Brandt, has lately become distant, and when Marez comes to join their team from a neighborhing kingdom, he offers Livia the option of a life she had never dared to imagine. Livia knows of no other dreamstriders who have survived the pull of Nightmare. So only she understands the stakes when a plot against the Empire emerges that threatens to consume both the dreaming world and the waking one with misery and rage.

A richly conceived world full of political intrigue and fantastical dream sequences, at its heart Dreamstrider is about a girl who is struggling to live up to the potential before her.

Why I need it on my shelf:

First the concept sounds AH-MA-ZING who wouldn't want to be able to walk into another person's dreams to do some spying. This book doesn't sound like anything I have ever read. I'm super excited to see how the author uses this amazing concept in her favor and the cover is just gorgeous! What book are you excited for? Let me know in the comments below; I would love to hear from you! 



  1. I have been seeing this one around. The plot sounds really refreshing and not like a lot of things that are out there right now. I have to admit though that while the cover is somewhat pretty, it also kind of freaks me out.

    1. I have seen out there a lot too. So, I decided to check it out and it really intrigued me. Know that you point that out, it is kind of creepy. Thank you for visiting my blog!
