Top 25: Yes
Convince us to read the book: This book is powerful in many ways. Their is a monotheistic religion that is powerful and almost believable. The writing is smooth and is almost so perfect it's hard to put it down.
Memorable or Forgettable: It was memorable by how the author made the story flow real nicely. I didn't like some parts of the religion though. She really could've moved it from realistic to OMG!
Cover: The cover actually deflected me. I didn't understand the point of it and to be honest, only picked up the book so I could stay on TKB.
Age Range: 14 through 17
Quality: 4Q - Better than most
Popularity: 2P - Only for special interest
Annotation: Dreams turn into Nightmares in Dreamstrider. In Livia's world she feels a Darkness tugging at her from the shadows, and the nightmares are continuing to grow larger.
