Waiting on Wednesday: Dreamfire

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine and is a fun way to see what books other bloggers just can't wait to get their hands on!


Kit Alloway
Paranormal Young Adult
Releases February 24th, 2015 from St. Martin's Griffin

From Amazon:

Unlike most 17-year-olds, Joshlyn Weaver has a sacred duty. She's the celebrated daughter of the dream walkers, a secret society whose members enter the Dream universe we all share and battle nightmares. If they fail, the emotional turmoil in the Dream could boil over and release nightmares into the World.

Despite Josh's reputation as a dream walking prodigy, she's haunted by her mistakes. A lapse in judgment and the death of someone she loved have shaken her confidence. Now she's been assigned an apprentice, a boy whose steady gaze sees right through her, and she's almost as afraid of getting close to him as she is of getting him killed.

But when strangers with impossible powers begin appearing in the Dream, it isn't just Will that Josh has to protect–it's the whole World.

I've only read one other series that deals with dream walking (I think. I've read a lot of books so it's possible I've read more than one about this particular ability and just don't remember. Awesome.) and I absolutely loved both books so I'm hoping I'll have the same luck with Dreamfire. Maybe dream walkers are going to prove themselves to be young adult fail-safes for me. I have high hopes.

I just really like the sound of this one, I'm a sucker for characters who are emotionally or physically damaged in some way, and Josh, with weight of loved one's death on her shoulders, fits that bill pretty perfectly. Plus, romance. I'm easy to please, what can I say ;-)

  1. YES! I want this too, Jenny. I haven't read anything about Dream Walking before, but this sounds very cool. And yes, romance is enough to please me too! ;)
    Lovely pick, Jenny!

    1. I've only read Mindee Arnett's Nightmare series and I LOVED those books, so I'm really looking forward to this one:)

  2. Where on earth do you find these gorgeous books? I think dream walking is relatively new and unexplored, which also means it's potentially awesome, and like you, I love a damaged character more than anything else.

  6. I haven't heard about this one before and it sounds intriguing! I will be waiting for your review of this one before adding it to the list.
    Now, you also got me wondering if I had read any dream walking series and sort of think yes but I can't remember! Dammit...

    1. It's hard to remember Pili! We read so many books:) I don't think I've read anything other than the Nightmare Affair series, but I'm not positive:)

  7. That cover looks mighty gorgeous. I don't think I've ever really read something with Dream Walkers before, so that's going to be a new one for me when I get to this one :D

  15. I've only read one series with dream walking, too . The Wake series by Lisa McMann. I loved the first book but the next two were disappointing. Anyhow, this sounds really good, Jenny! I hadn't heard of this one so I'll have to add to my TBR for sure. :)
