Review for Dreamland
Another fabulous read in the Riley Bloom series. Riley goes on a quest in hopes to find a way to contact her sister Ever. But is she able to break through the nightmare to reach her?
In the Riley Bloom series, author Alyson Noel does an awesome job at introducing life after death. With three-dimensional characters and a heartfelt longing to reach her sister, Dreamland makes for a compelling read.
I'm very much looking forward to the next adventure, which takes her to…sorry I can't say. Let's just say it's a very exciting place and I can't wait to go on the journey with her!
Riley's finding that the afterlife can be a lonely place when all you do is focus on work. So she goes to the place where dreams happen, hoping to find a way to contact her sister, Ever. She meets the director, who tells her about the two ways to send dreams. As a Dream Jumper, a person can jump into a dreamer's dream, share a message, and participate.
As a Dreamweaver, an entire dream can be created in a studio and sent to the dreamer. But Dreamweaving was outlawed decades ago, and the studio was boarded up. Thinking it's her only way to reach out to her sister, Riley goes in search of the old studio. There she finds a ghost boy, who's been creating and sending nightmares to people for years. In order to stop him and reach out to Ever, Riley is going to have to confront and overcome her own fears.
