Dreamer: A Novel of the Silent Empire

Rated 4.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Rust is just one planet among many in the Empire of Human Unity. It's nothing special...except that it's home to an unknown boy who may be the most powerful Silent telepath ever born.

For now, only Kendi Weaver of the Children of Irfan knows about the boy. But power like that can't remain hidden for long--and every government in the galaxy will be willing to go to war to control him. More

About Steven Harper

Steven Harper Piziks was born in Saginaw, Michigan, but he moved around a lot and has lived in Wisconsin, Germany, and (briefly) Ukraine. Currently he lives with his wife and three sons near Ann Arbor, Michigan.

His novels include IN THE COMPANY OF MIND and CORPORATE MENTALITY, both science fiction published by Baen Books. Writing as Steven Harper for Roc Books, he has produced The Silent Empire series: DREAMER, NIGHTMARE, TRICKSTER, and OFFSPRING. All four are now available in e-format at Smashwords. He's also written books based on Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and The Ghost Whisperer, as well as the movie novelization IDENTITY. With his mother Penny Drake, he’s written the romantic thriller TRASH COURSE.

Booklist calls his novels “fast, furious, and absorbing,” and “intelligent enterntainment.” Strange Horizons says his work is filled with “fast-paced adventure filled with intrigue and populated with characters you care about,” and The Romantic Times writes that “Harper . . . creates a compelling universe.”

Steven currently teaches high school English in southeast Michigan. His students think he’s hysterical, which isn’t the same as thinking he’s hilarious. When not writing, he plays the folk harp, dabbles in oral storytelling, and spends more time on-line than is probably good for him.

Review by: Victoria Caro on April 20, 2011 :
First, I should admit that space operas are not my type of genre. The only reason I chose to read this book was because of its common theme -dreams and telepathy- with my own book. I was simply curious to compare so was pleasantly surprised to be hooked from the beginning and enjoying an alien world that I would generally not be interested in. Having said that, strange alien-creatures showed up little and most characters, their conflicts and settings are very Earth-like, so that probably helped. There were some typos but they didn't really bother me since they were few and sparse. The only negative remark I'd add is that it seemed to dragged a little toward the end. The first half had my full attention, however, I found myself skimming through some 'slow' sections in the second half eager to get to the resolution of the story. Overall: an engaging read.

Review by: Kelly Sheehan on May 24, 2010 :
I have read both the Nightmare and Dreamer books in this series and am loving them. Can't wait to start on the other 2 books in the series. Probably the only critiscm I can give is that the spelling and grammer in both books needs to be looked at as there are missing words and some spelling mistakes. Don't know if its an american thing but you spell troops like that and not like in the book troupes. If this was sorted it would be great as it is distracting!!!
