Rated 3.80/5 based on 5 reviews
One boy’s footprints strayed into a stray Gate and walked a forbidden path. Then he was brought to a new Dreamworld, there to begin a Journey new.
One wolfcat’s pawprints stepped out for the first time to guide the steps of a lost boy, to stand in the way of all that may harm him, to keep him from walking into trouble... or at least, to try. More

This is an awesome book! I read this book months ago and got a bit ticked off by the formatting (I think it's fixed now), but I stuck with it. Boy am I glad I did! I finished reading book 4 and for me this is one of the best book series in Smashwords.
This book has an expansive world, detailed creatures and attributes, as well as a good plot and intriguing mysteries.

And personally I don't agree that this is a Pokemon fanfiction..
Sure there are some similarities, but speaking as a Pokemon and Digimon fan, I can tell that the author did not simply worked his story on an already established base; instead painstakingly worked out all the itsy, bitsy intricate details that usually make up very good RPG/adventure games and somehow managed to weave it into a solidly awesome story!

Five stars!

(By the way, I got this book months ago when it was still free and downloaded straight from Stanza. I lost it when Amazon kil- *cough* "discontinued" it so I had to buy it again to make this review. That's why it says reviewed on day of purchase. Yep. I love this book series THAT much.)

This novel is essentially a work of Pokemon fanfiction, with the serial numbers filed off in an attempt to make it look more "original." The world's concept is certainly interesting, but the setting is so obviously meant to be a direct parallel to Pokemon (Gyms, badges, going on a journey to collect monsters - even the place names sound distinctly 'Pokemonesque." The loudspeaker in the first chapter even sounds just like the professors at the start of each Pokemon game!) that it was distracting. The book would have worked a lot better either as a straight-up Pokemon story with actual Pokemon in it, or as a fantasy novel with a more unique and differentiated world - as it is now; it's nothing more than a high concept about the world of dreams struggling for its own voice.

On a grammatical level, however, the story was miles ahead of some other texts I've read here on Smashworlds; and I certainly can't fault the author for gaining inspiration where they did. Pokemon is pretty awesome; it's a shame this book can't be as enchanting as the world it takes so much from.
