Every dream you've ever had, and every dream yet to come, exists in the Kingdoms of the Void. Every nightmare, too. Because there has to be balance;it's the rules. But the Lords of Nightkeep aren't big on rules;only Conquest, Fear, and Eternal Darkness for All. It takes a powerful wizard like Laenan Kite to keep them in check. But Kite has other worries, and Nightkeep is g

I read this book at the same age as the author was when she wrote this and found myself extremely envious. This is a beautiful, humorous, moving story of Laenan Kite, who lives in Dream, and who in turn when he dreams comes to Earth. The problem? Dreamers on Earth are falling asleep and they're not waking up. Who will save the day? Laenan Kite of course, if a little reluctantly. I found myself thinking of Doctor Who when listening to Kite, he is the same sort of funny yet appealingly sad charact ...more
I wish I could be as talented as Catherine Webb was when she wrote this.
I want to buy the next one so badly.
My favorite quote is (without doubt) this one : "C'était comme si une lumière s'allumait dans l'obscurité, mais qu'avant qu'elle apparaisse j'ignorais que j'étais dans le noir."

The characters are perfect (I thought Lisana was useless before I knew she was the legitimate queen). The universe is well described. I wish I was there instead of only being where I am now.
This book left me with ma
Best. Book. EVER.

A believable hero (what with his endless supply of sarcasm, cynicism and dry humour), a kick-ass female protagonist and just the right mix of magic. Anyone who disagrees can answer to me. That's how awesome it is.
The best book I've ever read. It's absolutely amazing, everyone should read it.
The Kingdoms of the Void are created out of dreams, but no all dreams are pleasant, the nightmares have their own place. However nightmares and dreams fight for control of this world and now the forces of Nightkeep have killed the King of Dreams.

Laenan Kite has his own small kingdom. He's happy there, he's used magic and his dreams of our earth to create a paradise for himself, but now he's summoned for the inauguration of the new King.

When he gets to the central kingdom of dreams he finds that

I loved this book, when i wasn't reading it i was thinking about it. A very easy read so perfect for my summer holiday this year (i only wish i hadnt finished it as quickly as it left me with nothing to read after).

I would describe it as a teen read however the language used leads me to think otherwise. at times i would be laughing out loud, the narritive is hilerious and i really related to the main character. and i loved how one aspect wasnt what i predicted.

the reason it only gets 4 stars fr
I remember reading this book long ago, when I was just 12. And I remember I loved it, I could recite whole pages from memory. It was certainly a perfect book for I child, I guess. I sort of want to read it again, but I'm really afraid I wouldn't like it as much as I did, now that I'm older. But still, I recommend it to every child around 12 ^^

Oh wow, this book used to be my absolute favorite when I was younger - until I lost it, I've lent it out to someone and cannot remember who, which worries me. Only just remembered about it, it's been over 5 years since I've seen it but I'm dying to re-read it!
I've pleaded the case for Catherine Webb/Kate Griffin before. This is the first book she got published at the grand old age of 14, and it had some really neat ideas.

This book is amazing and my favourite book of all time! I would recommend it to anyone!!!
Lucy Thorneycroft
I'm honestly not sure why but I really struggled to get through this book.
Nick Benson
Disappointing, confused/confusing, unclear premise, weak characterisation
Very good, considering the age of the author. I had such envy of her.
Very good, easy read. The biggest issue is getting past the rare moments when age really shines through (there aren't many, but there are enough for me to remember them).
