Dreamfire by Kit Alloway

Synopsis

Joshlyn Weaver has always lived with a big secret. Ordinary kids spend their free time going to the movies, hanging out with friends, and searching on the internet.  

But for her, an evening at home usually means entering people’s dreams. For many generations, her family has been part of a very powerful and very secretive society of dream walkers. Tasked with the responsibility of lowering the world’s general anxiety — which only leads to war and strife in the waking world — their job has always been to stop nightmares before they go too far.
By stopping nightmares while sleeping, they help to stop nightmares in real life. 

But when an ancient feud within the dream walker society resurfaces right when a seemingly unconnected series of very strange and very scary events start occurring during her dream walks, Josh finds herself in a race against time. The one true dream walker has never been known. Could she be the one?

Review
Dreamfire for me was one of those books that the blurb and cover pull you in and have you wanting to read. Oh a secret society of dreamwalker, however it just takes a while to actually get into the story it’s self.

The story wasn’t truly about a society of dream walkers,  but about a girl who is beating herself up of a tragic incident in her past and will do anything to forget.

The main characters in this tale are Josh and Will. Josh is a strong female lead but does spend a lot of the book beating her self up and trying to keep people at a arms lenght. It seemed as though the fact that everyone had a tendency to let her off the hook made it so that she had to be harsher on herself. Will is the unsuspecting pizza boy who’s world is turned upside down by a world that makes him one of there own.

The creation and development of villains in the story left you wanting to know more.   Pergerine, Josh  grandfather is somewhat of a villain thought we are left not truly know what sort or how much of a true villan he is.

All in all, this was a goodread and it will be interesting to see how this story develops.
