Dreamweaver is the last installment in C. S. Friedman's The Dreamwalker Chronicles. The series was originally meant to be comprised of more books, but the author elected to wrap things up and make this a trilogy while writing the second volume. Based on Dreamwalker, it was evident that this was a series brimming with potential. Upping her game in Dreamseeker, the second installment, Friedman promised a good finale to come. And I'm pleased to report that it's pretty much mission accomplished for ...more

Overall I enjoyed the narrative. However some of the writing seemed rushed in this conclusion of the trilogy, and on top of that there were some oddities in the writing for characters' reactions. The main issue I have in this third book was that a lot of things that it was building up to in the whole trilogy were resolved too simply and way too quickly when it came time to address them.

I'm surprised more people haven't read this trilogy and I know a lot of people would enjoy it as a whole even i

I loved the first 2 books of this series - a teenage girl suddenly is able to travel between worlds? And someone, no a whole group of someones, want to kill her for it?

Jesse finds out more info and resolves most of the problems in the first trilogy, while the ending clearly opens up threads for a new trilogy. Nicely done, but somehow not as gripping as the first two books.
I will still look forward to the next book.

Astonishing finish

If only the humans here in this world who think the only way to cope with conflict is to kill and hate and go on killing and hating forever could come up with as reasonable and creative way to settle their differences as Ms. Friedman has, reality might be as good as fantasy.

2.5. I found this book (and really the whole series) underdeveloped. Characters, world, plot, politics, you name it. This was a slog for me, I just didn't feel invested in any of the characters , while the world didn't inspire any feelings of wonder or awe. A rare misstep from an author I admire, and whose other books I'd recommend. ...more

I love C. S. Friedman but this one lacked much emotional punch. I never really felt like Jesse was in any real danger. Nonetheless, cool world building and definitely high quality for a YA book.

A B+. Nicely wrapped up and concluded the series. Believably done and fitting.

C.S. Friedman’s novels for adults are always exceptional.  I have less experience with her novels for young adults.  Dreamweaver is written with a young adult target audience in mind.  The plot and writing are more straightforward, less complex but still enjoyable for adult readers.  The third novel of the Dreamwalker Chronicles brings the series to its conclusion.

Jessica’s dreams and those of her mother and brother are plagued by the reapers.  It seems only a matter of time before they are kill

A stronger finish than start

Jess, the protagonist, was pretty boring in book 1 which is a problem with a close first person narrator. Fortunately, whether it's because she's grown as a character or just familiarity, there's more there there and the conflict is more immediately pressing. Dropping the romance triangle from the first book helped a lot, too. Issac continues to have POV, which is nice since he's the a lot more interesting than Jess. The conflict wraps up fairly easily all told, but n
