One friend (Vickie) had already disappeared after being in a coma, another (Tricia) was in a coma, while their friends Cathy and Karen had an idea of why and how they got there, they really wanted to know if they could get them back. Being struck in the dream world had not been part of the plan when Tricia had first attempted following Vickie, trying to saver had been. Vickie had made new friends with Micah and Shanti after they had played a part in rescuing her from the dream land and bringing her to this other world. Now they were trying to help her get home again. The lands that they had traveled through offered information at every turn. The brown-eyed people of Baraumaru offered premonitions, but nothing that foretold how to dream travel. The blue-eyed people of Cerulea with their Universities and their vast psychic abilities didn’t know of the solution either. So, off to Viridia, the land of the green-eyed people, with their connection to every living thing, they were the last hope of finding a safe and sure way for Vickie to dream travel back to her own home.

Book 3 ….. A conclusion of sorts. The first book of this story is an introduction to the people, places and concept of the story. The second book is the action, suspense and the reasoning for the story. The third book, this book is the conclusion of the story. Not much else to it either. This was more difficult to read because of the repetitiveness of the whole thing. It also felt a little disjointed in places almost like there were pages out of order or missing. It was a mostly predictable ending and then there was the addition of chapter 24 - completely not necessary. The addition of the ‘newspaper articles’ through out the book was confusing at first, but after finally realizing why they were there, the last chapter was redundant. I did like the story of dream travel to other worlds and the possibilities of being caught there without knowing how to go home again.
