Book #2 in a trilogy from fantasy author Wayne Thomas Batson explores the concept of dreams and their effects on us.
Fourteen-year-old Archer Keaton discovers he has the ability to enter and explore his dreams. He is a dreamtreader, one of three selected from each generation. Their mission: to protect the waking world from the evil lurking in the Dream.
The Nightmare Lord has been thrown down, but his throne is no longer empty. Rigby Thames has taken up the evil mantle with Kara Windchil as his queen. Now the only living dreamtreader, Archer Keaton finds himself on the outside of two worlds looking in. Dream Walking Inc. is taking the world by storm, allowing Rigby to build an unstoppable empire. Worse still, Rigby has unleashed the Tendrils, shadow people who can cross over into the waking world. As Archer’s family and friends begin to disappear, unexpected help comes in the form of the Wind Maiden, a mysterious angelic being who seems to know how Archer can rescue his loved ones and defeat the new Nightmare King. But the cost may prove too dear for Archer to pay.
Steeped in epic fantasy and intrigue, this second book in the Dreamtreaders series teaches kids important Christian values such as being a light in the darkness, resisting temptation, and keeping your faith, even when you feel like you’re standing alone.

- Review by Fitzysmom
If your son or daughter has ever been in a situation where they faced temptation and had to make a decision that would perhaps have uncomfortable results then they will surely relate to the story of Archer Keaton. I liked how honestly the author portrayed the traps that teens can find themselves in. Another aspect of the story that I appreciated was the element of strong family ties. Archer's family isn't perfect but they love each other and support each other. That is a very needed message in this day and age.
I have to admit that fantasy books are not on the top of my desired reading, but this series is so well written that I couldn't help but enjoy it. If you have a child that loves action and adventure stories I think they will enjoy this one. This is book two in the series and in my opinion I think it is important that you read book one first to get the complete story.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review. (Posted on 1/22/2015)
