Convince us to read the book: Dreamstrider is amazing. This book is really well written, but the transitions could been a lot better - like how they end the chapters was poorly done. The characters were great but the character development was slow for the main character and fast for everyone else. I wish they had explained the empires better but that's okay, they made it up by describing the characters down to the core. Finally they shouldn't have friend-zoned that hard - like we get it!
Memorable or Forgettable: The qualities that make this book memorable were the cover and the characters.
Cover: The cover did make me want to pick it up because it was different from the other covers. The cover did reflect the contents.
Age Range: 14 through 15
Quality: 4Q - Better than most
Popularity: 4P - Broad general teen appeal
Annotation: Being a spy is cool but being a body stealer, now that's a different story.
