I'm always nervous about the quality of ebooks, but this one does not disappoint. I've read very widely of young adult fantasy, (Pulman, Rowling, Eragon series, pendragragon series, etc) and Dreamstate: Dark Eyes is on par with any of these great books. Zawalich pulls you into the dream of a young boy, Daniel, who is a likeable, friendly character. His friend Leerah is equally fun to read about, and it's refreshing to see a female character portrayed who is interesting, has her own personality, and can stand up for herself!
The idea of a dream actually being a kind of alternate reality is unique and exciting, I've never read a book that used this concept. I'm greatly looking forward to reading more books in this series.

This book was a fantastic read! Zawalich creates a unique and intricate universe with beautifully worded imagery. This is a well-crafted and interesting novel that you will be unable to put down, and is an exciting prelude to what promises to be an amazing series.
The story of Daniel is compelling and the character is likeable and easy to relate to, and the novel itself is crafted in a manner to rival Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy in action and whimsy.
This is an incredible novel that is an interesting read for anyone, regardless of whether or not they enjoy the fantasy genre. I highly recommend it!
