David Mayer throws readers into Egyptian Mythology/History, mixes in a little bit of dream interpretation, stirs in some teenaged romance and unstoppable evil and finishes it off with an ending that leaves you hoping for a sequel. There are some twists, turns, and mysteries but nothing complex or difficult to follow.

Sabine is a high school freshman who has recently moved from Oregon to Sacramento after the death of her father and disappearance of her grandfather. She's going through being the n...more

I really enjoyed Reswyt, the first installment of the Dreamline series. In some ways, it reminded me of 'The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe'. I also felt like there was a spiritual aspect to the book (though not blatant) partly because the author's voice was one of reverence and partly because of the underlying themes of good vs. evil and free will. Though Reswyt is a YA novel, it certainly has the potential to challenge readers of every age group to deep thinking and personal reflec...more

Let it be said that I think it may be impossible for me to give you a review that will tell you the basis of the story. There is a lot of back and forth between reality and dream world and I obviously can't tell you everything that happens. The description above gives you a good gist of why sh...more

It's no secret that I enjoy reading young adult novels. I find a lot of times that the plots are fresher and more enjoyable then books written for adults. RESWYT happens to be one of those novels.

There is the usual teenage drama about romance and high school that one finds in this genre. What makes it unique is the mixture of Egyptian mythology and dream interpretation that is added to the pot. I found that adding in those additions really made for a unique storyline.

Mr. Mayer also did a wonder...more

Reswyt is a good read that gets better the more you read. Sabine is a great character that you can't help be drawn to. You feel sorry for all she's been through and cheer her on when she finds herself in battles in the dreamworld. I love how she gets to the dreamworld and enjoyed how Sabine figures out how to use the magic device. She isn't your typical fictional teen girl even if she cant choose which boy to pick, she still seems different. The other characters in both worlds are no less fascin...more

It was slow-moving at first and I almost gave up on it. I'm glad I didn't though, because it ended up being pretty good. The only problem is, it ended on a cliffhanger. If the author makes more books in the series, I'm not sure I'll want to read them. Lastly, it had sooooo many typos! I was able to correct them in my mind but it honestly bothered me at times and made the author seem unprofessional. He should have spent more time editing it or something.

This was a great spin on dreams and the dream world with some Egyptian mythology mixed in. Fun book.
Gail Tiffany
It was alright. Not one of my all time favorites. I sort of had to make myself finish it.
Stephanie Hamill
