First off, I must put out there that this book is not for young teens. It has way too many sexual references and innuendos. As far as I know the book is not advertised for young teens, but with the reference to gaming and dragons, it is sure to attract some of the younger set.
This is a story that has two stories running at the same time. One takes place in modern times and the other one runs simultaneously during the days of kings and dragons. The maj ...more

The characters were well-rounded with believable and realistic goals that were expertly woven together to create this vast tale. Every time I turned a page, another layer of complexity was added to intensify the story. I thoroughly enjoyed the dual storyline and the symbolism found between Magic and Scheen's life and the "game" whi ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
In the beginning I was a bit confused by the concept of reading parallel points of view. However, as the book progressed the purpose became more evident and I was hooked and I found myself devouring the pages. Dreamer is beautifully written with a unique vision and flow. Very reminiscent of the style of Michael Moorcock's The Last Emperor of Melnibone Chronicles. A true must read for the Science ...more
Dreamer follows Magic the Dream Ender and Scheen, whose first name I believe was Oliver, though that's only mentioned once in the entire book. The reader never learns Magic's real name. Even in the non game portions of the story he's simply known as Magic. The story tells the tale of two unlikely friends who play a game, though the kind of game is left to imagination of the reader. In the game, Scheen is a captain in the king of Marithe's guard, and Magic, well Magic is one of the few remaining...more

As I sit here and write this review, I cannot believe how this book ended. It surprised me on a roller coaster of emotions that I am reeling from the after effects that has me wondering what I missed. I will be reading this book over to see if a second reading will open my eyes to something I missed the first time.
I would call this book a creeper. It creped inside of me and did not let go.
I did not realize that it got under my skin. I was enjoying the smooth flow that was the words wrappi ...more
