For five years, Nora has been dreaming about the Sandman. After being told she's crazy, she finds it hard to believe whether or not the Sandman is real. When people start drying, Nora starts hearing whispers about a Dream Keeper from the Weaver, the lord of Nightmares. She keeps telling herself it isn't real, but it's harder to deny when she catches Ben, a new coworker, talking back to the whispers. There's something familiar about Ben and Nora finds herself drawn to him.
When Nora learns that she's a Dream Keeper, she realizes she can't sit idly by while the people around her suffer. After her sister is taken, a line is drawn. Nora must rely on the Sandman's help to get her back and she can no longer deny his presence or her feelings. But how does one fight against the Weaver, the ruler of nightmares?
After reading the blurb, I knew I had to read this book. I love books about the Sandman, especially when he's the love interest. The mysteriousness behind the Sandman had me drawn in and made this book an easy page-turner. DREAM KEEPER is fast-paced, enchanting, horrifying, and a book I couldn't put down. The deaths are graphic, so warning for those who are scared easily. The ending is so epic and left me dying for the second installment.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of The Sandman, Rise of the Guardians (yes, the movie ;) but a darker version of it), Dream worlds, dark fantasy, romance, and horror.
