Dream Treaders

Saving the world one dream at a time

Saving the world one dream at a time

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.

This is a great story.  I’ve had a love/dislike (not so strong as hate!) relationship with Wayne Thomas Batson for a while now.  I’ve loved his Door Within Trilogy and Spiderking Chronicles, but felt his pirate novels and Dark Sea Annals were too dark.  This opener to a new series is wonderful, however.  It has a great premise and he follows through with it well.  Like always, his characters are well-developed and interesting.  It is not dark enough that I’m nervous reading it while still being “cool” enough that even teen boys would like (I’m assuming; my brothers haven’t complained!)  I will be watching for the next releases!
