It's been a while since I've posted anything book-related - alas, I'm a day belated on the newest release from one of my favourite authors, however that will not prevent me from urging you today to go and pick up his book.
Isn't that absolutely GLORIOUS cover art? I feel pain in my soul every time I look at it, because I cannot get my hands on a solid copy yet (I have acquired the kindle version - voila insta-book!).
Now, I encourage you to read below as to why you should invest, with haste, into this book.
Book #1 in a trilogy from fantasy author Wayne Thomas Batson explores the concept of dreams and their effects on us.
People are fascinated by dreams, and the Bible has a great deal to say about them. From Jacob’s dream of the heavenly stairway in Genesis 28 to angels visiting Joseph during dreams in Matthew 1 to the Apostle John’s “waking dream” from which he obtained the book of Revelation—dreams have been powerful ingredients of God’s plan as revealed through Scripture.
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 Nightmare Lord, who wreaks chaos in the Dream World. But as Archer’s dreams become more dangerous and threatening, so too does his waking life.
Rigby Thames, the new kid from England, builds a suspicious rock star-like following at Dresden High School a little too quickly. Even Archer’s best friend and confidant, Kara Windchil, seems taken in by the cool guy with the wild blond hair, which definitely rubs Archer the wrong way. Archer must face two foes in two worlds, but he cannot succeed alone. Archer sets off to find other dreamtreaders in a desperate attempt to defeat the enemy terrorizing his friends and family.
Features & Benefits:

- Batson’s previous epic fantasy trilogy, The Door Within, has sold more than 250,000 copies
- Brings epic fantasy with a biblical base to middle grade readers
- Epic fantasy is popular in movies and TV shows, and this is a spiritual epic fantasy
Are you convinced yet? I certainly was! I have always been fascinated with the concept of dreams - I was even more so intrigued after reading Bryan Davis' series Echoes from the Edge (that's a link to Book 1 of 3), which also discusses the idea of dream-walking. The fact that WTB, one of my favourite authors in the entire world, is writing a series on this very topic instantly makes this book a must-read.
So what are you waiting for? The kindle version of Dreamtreaders is super easy to attain! You can read it on your computer or ebook device (if you don't know how, feel free to email me - just click the Contact Me tab). I'd love to know if this post was the final straw for your decision to read WTB's latest book - post a comment if you decided to buy it :)
Signed with utmost excitement,
