Around the world humans are hallucinating after sleepless nights.

In a sterile, underground institute the forecasters keep reporting the same events.

And in the backwoods of Texas, a sixteen-year-old girl is about to be caught up in a fierce, ethereal battle.

Meet Roya Stark. She drowns every night in her dreams, spends her hours reading classic literature to avoid her family’s ridicule, and is prone to premonitions—which are becoming more frequent. And now her dreams are filled with strangers offering to reveal what she has always wanted to know: Who is she? That’s the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out. But will Roya live to regret learning the truth?

***#NerdGirlKelly’s Review***

 Fresh and intriguing fantasy about dream travelers and the secret world of the Lucidites. One day Roya is a normal teenage girl and then the next, her whole world is turned upside down. She finds out that she is a dream traveler and that her whole life has been based on one big lie. She also finds out she is supposed to defeat the feared Zuang. Zuang steals dreams and wants Roya for a plan of his own. Roya has never really been accepted and now she is thrown into the world of the Lucidites. She is coming to terms with her new life and of course new friends and love.

“Intentions are flimsy in the face of opposing danger. Determination, on the other hand, is resilient to challenge. It’s the antidote.”

“If things get tough try and remember that your perception is the only thing you control, so change it.”

“Forget who they say you’re supposed to be. Become who you are.”

This is a great coming of age fantasy story. You won’t be able to put this down. This is the first book I have read by Sarah Noffke, but it won’t be the last. I can’t wait to read the sequel!
