Waiting On Wednesday // Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith

Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith

Published by Roaring Brook Press
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Science Fiction
Expected Release Date: October 6, 2015

Synopsis: A high-concept, fantastical espionage novel set in a world where dreams are the ultimate form of political intelligence.

Livia is a dreamstrider. She can inhabit a subject's body while they are sleeping and, for a short time, move around in their skin. She uses her talent to work as a spy for the Barstadt Empire. But her partner, Brandt, has lately become distant, and when Marez comes to join their team from a neighborhing kingdom, he offers Livia the option of a life she had never dared to imagine. Livia knows of no other dreamstriders who have survived the pull of Nightmare. So only she understands the stakes when a plot against the Empire emerges that threatens to consume both the dreaming world and the waking one with misery and rage.

A richly conceived world full of political intrigue and fantastical dream sequences, at its heart Dreamstrider is about a girl who is struggling to live up to the potential before her.

Why I'm Waiting On Dreamstrider

Ooooh, look at that cover.

I know it's been said that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but I am judging and loving the cover art for Dreamstrider.  So many bright colors contrasted with the black and the dark gray -- it's gorgeous.  Gimme, gimme, GIMME!  But, cover art aside, the synopsis for Dreamstrider is really intriguing.  Spying on people while they dream?  That kind of reminds me of one of my favorite movies: Inception.

I haven't read any of Lindsay Smith's other books, but I've heard a lot of good things about Sekret.  I hope that Dreamstrider lives up to my expectations.

What do you think?  Will you be reading Dreamstrider?
