This book is definitely not without flaw (punctuation, tense confusion, etc), and a little tedious at times. It does resemble a dreamlike state, though it seems not much is happening a lot of the time. It kind of reads like a handbook, though it has excerpts from handbooks at the beginning of each chapter. Also, though this story reads like it's for kids, it's definitely not, as it has some pretty graphic scenes (beheading, torturing, etc) and profane language.
On the plus side, this book was entertaining. It does transport the reader to another realm, the dream world. I liked it overall and would recommend to readers who are interested in dreams and who like fiction fantasy stories.

Most of this tale is G-rated and the bulk of it is world building and learning the magic systems. Nearly everyone in this story is a good guy and there is very little conflict. Part of me found that interesting, and part of me felt it made the story a little slow. Still, I enjoyed the whole concept that our necessary downtime, stuck in sleep and dreams, doesn’t have to be a waste of time. Dawn Harshaw built a very interesting beginning to a series.
By the end of the tale, Eric and two of his dream friends are ready to move on to the next stage and help fight nightmares. They shared several humorous missteps together, several triumphs, and several jokes by the brothers Lyle and Kyle. The book sometimes strayed into lots of lucid dream psychology or metaphysical jargon which was a bit over my head, but added to the world building. In short, I found this fantasy to be an interesting read and I look forward to seeing what the author does with the kids in the next installment.
