"1984 and Brave New World meets Narnia”

Cities have been replaced by technates. It is a world of soaring apartments, hundreds of stories high, where technology measures, monitors and rations to meet the needs of the greater populace. It is a world of drones, in the air and on the ground, and advanced robotic beings who carry out much of the harder labor, security, and even

A dialog driven teen dystopian novel, Dream of the Navigator imagines a world where all aspects of life are watched and controlled, except for the select few who are rich enough to live in a better place. While the poor only receive health care when it’s deemed of value to society, the rich are beginning to “buy” eternal life. But cracks start to show and rebellion brews.

Add worlds beyond our own, wars between unseen powers to whom humanity might just be a pawn, and that vexing question of what

In a world of persistent surveillance, the only place for privacy is in one’s dreams. So how do you start an uprising in this world? You contact them in their dreams.

Dream of the Navigator has quite an interesting premise. I was intrigued by the story-world and plot alike when I started reading, and it immediately reminded me of Ready Player One, with a few differences of course. The main difference being the fantasy element included in the story, which I enjoyed.

There are lots of characters and

I love dystopian fiction and jumped at the chance to review this one. I will start by saying that once again Seventh Star Press has created a beautiful cover. There has been several covers produced by this publisher that I would gladly have on my walls and this is one of them. But there is much more going on then the cover could ever convey. Zimmer is one of those authors that takes time and puts so much in to character and world building. While this was gripping and you can feel yourself being ...more

(copy from Tomorrow Comes Media and voluntarily reviewed, taking part in the blog tour on 18 August)

I thought Dream of the Navigator was a cracking read. The description from the blog tour banner ‘1984 and Brave New World meet Narnia is very accurate. First off, I love the cover. I like the dark and light mirror reflection. Very eye-catching. I found the book very gripping. The world inhabited by the characters in the book is my idea of hell. I find myself

I have been working on reading this book for a while; mostly due to the fact my 11-year-old confiscated my kindle and finished it first. Dream of the Navigator definitely has a dystopian feel with multiple POVs to characters that are being set up to be major players in the (hopeful) breakdown of the highly restrictive society controlled by an elite few.

As these characters start to see the possibilities of a different life, they meet guides who show them how to navigate different version of reali

Dream of the Navigators is Stephen Zimmer at his best! The book is a triumph (and has one of the coolest book covers I have ever seen)! Slowly brewing its characters and story revealing a world that’s fresh, immersive, sometimes scary, and fantastical on every page! This book is an amazing introduction to an incredible and exciting adventure! But isn’t afraid to be more than just a story, and sheds light upon a horrifyingly possible future, but never fear, for a light always shines to bring hope ...more
