The Dream Keeper ~ Mikey Brooks

How fitting is it that this story marks my 1-year anniversary of my blog! This story, while for teens and young adults, begs you to use your imagination!

Parker and Kaelyn are high school students who couldn’t be more different. Parker is a gamer that wants to fit in with the crowd. Kaelyn is the new kid that couldn’t fit even if she tried. Every night, they relive a recurring dream… while different from each other, their dream never changes. What made their dream different this time? Gladamyr, the dream keeper.

The world couldn’t exist without opposites, such as good and evil. There has to be a balance. So keeping with that theory, there are dream keepers and mares. It’s kind of like the poem… “Girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice. Boys are made of snips and snails and puppy dog tails…” Dream keepers allow you to relive your best memories or fantasies. Mares are… well, nightmares. (Shocker!) The mares want to reclaim the world which would destroy not only the world of Dream, but the mortal world as well. It’s up to Gladamyr and his new bonds, Parker and Kaelyn to stop that from happening.

I can totally see how this book gets compared to “Harry Potter” or “Percy Jackson”. It’s very similar in the creation of two worlds combining. The world building for the land of Dream and different non-mortal destinations was creative and completely engaged my imagination. The book started off a bit slow, but when it picked up… boy did it! It had me wondering what will happen next on every page. I need to get to the next book immediately! I need to know what happens next!

I want to thank everyone who stuck with me throughout this journey of me sharing my love for reading! I truly appreciate it and thank you from the bottom of my heart! YOU GUYS ROCK!
