Feodor is dead. But he isn’t gone.

Every night, Josh’s dreams are full of his memories—his life, his inventions, and his descent into madness. With her best friend still in a coma, her boyfriend traumatized by his near-death experience, and her abilities as the True Dream Walker nowhere to be found, the temptation to use Feodor’s ideas to her own advantage is almost irresis

*I received an eARC from the publishers via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This didn't influence my opinion in any way.*

Dreamfever was everything I hoped the sequel to Dreamfire would be, and oh so much more! After the events that occurred at the end of the last book, the characters are struggling to come to terms with how their lives have changed, and are apprehensive of what the future holds. The book begins four months after Dreamfire, with Josh and Will exploring the Dream. They

This was by far, one of the longest trilogy I have read in a very long time. It’s not that the books were long but they felt very in depth as in each page felt as if was loaded with a lot of information and a lot of text. On my average, I’ll take around 2-3 days to finish a book but these pretty much took me a week at the minimum for each book so it completely ruined my reading schedule (sorry Emily! LOL). However, I still trudged on because I did fi

Check out this and other reviews on my young adult book blog, Here's to Happy Endings!

About a month ago, I read Kit Alloway’s debut novel, Dreamfire. When I had finished that, I honestly had to wonder what one earth had taken me so long to read it. It was a creative, imaginative journey of a seventeen year old girl who is a dream walker – she can enter the dream world and change people’s dreams in order to solve their nightmares. The whole idea behind Dreamfire is amazing, and in this equally as

NetGalley Review

WARNING: This book may generate the following: Genuine laughter, utter heartbreak, ‘I can’t believe it’ or ‘NO!’ or ‘UGH’ outbursts, and endless smiles.

After narrowly escaping a war inspired dimension hidden beneath the seven layers of the veil, Josh struggles with horrendous nightmares depicting the same man who captured her ex-boyfriend and friend’s soul. The nightmares appear to be of a happier time in Feodor’s life before the war claimed his freedom, his family, and his will
WOW! Definite page turner!!!
I hate to review until the very end and, now that I'm here, I'm working on compiling the best and worst moments of Dreamfever. And, there definitely aren't many of the latter so I highly suggest jumping in on this A-M-A-Z-I-N-G trilogy! IF you haven't already....

Review to follow shortly ....

In the meantime, I love catching typos and errors in my reading...

Here are a few of the ones I stumbled across .... (up to Chapter Twenty-Six):

I won this in a giveaway, so thank you to everyone who made that possible.

Also, this is my first real review so bear with me.

Dreamfever is the sequel to Dreamfire and the second in a trilogy. I don't like to write bad reviews because I know it's a lot of work to write a book, but I won't lie and say I liked it.

Things I liked:
The idea of dream walking. It really fascinated me and the idea of the three realms Dream, Death, and World was great. I really liked that it was possible to create a small

This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon . Please head there for more in-depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule.

Josh knows, in an intellectual kind of way, that she is the True Dream Walker. Haunted by Feodor’s knowledge, Josh longs to create stability in the Dream that will help her to recapture the power she felt in the first times she walked. Instead, things are complicated by the reappearance of the Royal Princess who hasn’t been around for 19 years…

I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. It was an ARC, so some things may have changed, but I'm sure much didn't.
I wavered between 3 and 4 stars the entire book. It was not as good as the first one, but did get better towards the end. I don't feel it warrants 4 stars.

A strange girl named Mirren comes out of Dream with Josh and Will. She happens to be a long-lost princess in a pocket world.
Josh is still plagued by dreams and memories from Feodor. She keeps this from Will - as he keeps the depths of

The second installment of the Dreamfire series, Dream fever continues the story of Josh and her friends, family and enemies. After defeating Feodor, a crazy scientist gone very bad, Josh and Will are hurt deeper then any flesh wound. As new dangers arise and a new hero appears, Josh and Will being to fall into themselves and their pain.
I loved the first novel in the series, Dreamfire, which leads me to be very surprised how much I disliked Dreamfever. It was hard to read with a lot of boring

Dreamfever by Kit Alloway is a young adult novel that consists of genres including fantasy, romance and mystery. I LOVED THIS BOOK! It picked up where Dreamfire concluded, and I wasn’t disappointed!

In comparison to Dreamfire, there was diversity among the characters. Each personality was different, which made the plot more realistic and interesting. Also, the secondary characters made a bigger appearance in this book, which I am grateful for.

Much improved from the previous book. I found Josh and her struggle with power lust a much more intriguing internal conflict, and Will felt much more human as he dealt with more self issues rather than playing therapist for everyone else. The plot also felt like it have a more engaging pace, the villains plans were less comically evil and more believably dictatorial. While I thought I would be disgusted with the implementation of a lost princess, Mirren was a delightful character. Her sense of d ...more

4.25 stars.

Honestly, I'm quite impressed with this series. I always have a soft spot for stories that tackle things like psychological traumas and background so Dreamfire and now its sequel have really handled the topics well and realistically.

Like most sequels, this book is mainly a "reaction" book to the first. However, it retains its sense of world-building without becoming boring, it continues developing characters without becoming dense, and the plot gets deeper and deeper while building

First of all I want to say thank you to Kit Alloway for writing this amazing series, second to Goodreads for letting me have a chance to read this sequel (via Giveaways) at to Griffin Books.

I had a chance to read Dreamfire when it came out last year though Giveaways as well and I was thrilled to be able to review Dreamfever (I was planning to buy it when it had come out, Dreamfire was one of my favorite books from last year).

I got so excited to get my hands on this book! I got the first book as a surprise and loved it. Once I dived into this book, it was like I never left. The characters, the details, everything I loved in the first book was there.

Only this time, Joshlyn is still having a hard time. Being a Dream Walker is not going the way she planned. She doesn't like her special gift, but it will come in handy. The bad thing is those nightmares. She just started to have them and its so bad that she can't tell Wi

I received a free copy of this book from Goodreads first reads. Wow! This books was incredible! It was full of action and suspense and I could not put this book down! Dreamfever was a great second book to Dreamfire. I absolutely loved the first one and now after reading the second book, I have become even more eager to see how this series unfolds. The whole idea of this book is so unique and completely fascinating. Who would ever have thought of a secret group of people who fight off nightmares ...more

I won this book from a giveaway. I was surprised to get a book that was actually an ARC. In exchange of a giveaway book, I will give a honest review.

I had a hard time getting started on this book because it is second book in the series. I didn't read the first book in this series. As I was able to figure out what was going on, it became quite easy book to read. It was so well written and I could not put the book down! The first book is definitely on my list to read!

This book is an amazing, excellent, and ( insert every possible adjective meaning good you can possibly think of) sequel to an equally astounding debut. On the downside, I did not know this was a sequel when I requested it so I had to do some serious catching up. I actually even started this without knowing it was a sequel, and when I found myself completely and utterly lost I realized what I had done and had to go back and find book one.

But I digress, it was amazing despite my own mess up - as

This book was intriguing. I can’t say that I liked the book but there is something that draws you in and keeps you interested. Dreamfever is the second book in the Dreamfire series. I recommend that you read Dreamfire first only because I was lost a good portion of the book trying to figure out what is happening. I did enjoy reading about some of the characters but most of the time I was frustrated with their thought process and wished I could slap them in the face to wake them up. This book was ...more

My husband received this book from a giveaway and gave it to me.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Watching Josh, Whim, Will, and the others continue on the fight for the good of the Dream Walkers community as a new person enters into the field, Princess Mirren. With her comes a lot of political strife and turmoil. Plus, Peregrine keeps trying to take over anything that he can. Add in recurring nightmares that Josh is having of Feodor, and you get an excellent story line. This one is more sad as co

That's my Big complement for this sequel. Things never took the path I predicted or even wanted half the time. But, it kept me constantly flipping pages wanting to know how things were resolved. The book doesn't by any means end of a cliffhanger, but there is a situation left unresolved that leaves you yearning for the next book.

There's lots of fun and excitement, terror and dread, and of course some romance. But, it doesn't come in the package you'll expect it to. I was soooo disa

I have to say I wasn't too impressed with the heroine. I got tired of her making so many mistakes and her character was so wishy washy. Will was also unimpressive. He wasn't supportive enough of Josh and he just lacking overall as a love interest. The plot was rather boring for me and I actually found myself not caring towards the end. The story was just too unreal that I had to make myself finish it. I appreciated the opportunity to try this series thanks to the Goodreads First Reads program bu ...more

The second in the series. Still held the story line very well. The idea of dreams, changing them, and using them as a way to influence people is wonderful. Takes subliminal messaging to a whole new step. Sad to see the queen was not reinstated, but that would have been too easy. This leaves it open for a whole new book. It is also nice to see the "quiet and unique" ones have such a big impact on a story's outcome. ...more

I don't know what to say about this book that would not be either rehashing the blurb or giving out spoilers. It was a great story, perhaps better than the first in the series. These characters get deeper and stronger. The new character adds a layer that was unexpected for me and I love her. Joss' struggle to differentiate between herself and the new knowledge she has acquired is brilliantly handled. I await the next in the series. ...more

I won this book on the goodreads giveaway. I believe that this book is even better than the first. I didn't want to put the book down.
The set of characters are teenagers who do make some serious errors in judgement. However, those mistakes are exactly the mistakes that a teenager would make who just survived the traumatic events from the first book. You'll need to read the first book in order to understand the characters' motivations.
