I got this for my 9 year old the other day. He started poking at it like it was cod liver oil. Like most 9 year old boys do when their father puts a BOOK in front of them. I told him it was probably like the Potter series - which he liked to WATCH... But I had him read the first ten pages before he could go to bed.

Imagine my surprise when I find him sitting at the kitchen table with TWO CHAPTERS left! He'd spent the entire night immersed in NA and kept 'shushing' me when I started asking him normal mundane questions about his plans for the day. (ok theres's some paternal schadenfreude at work here.)

But when he was done he was bubbling with excitement. Showing me the illustrations, trying to tell me the whole story. I told him I'd read it too and then we could talk about it. I started it right there and read it cover to cover. Now, Lorey's not writing in the style of Proust, he's got a very digestible and flowing style that keeps you chewing thru page after page. But this was a lot of fun. He created a whole fun uniqe world that I'd never visited.

Good going. For his freshman outing this was a joy and a pleasure.

A very absorbing tale and the start of a thrilling new series. Great characters and even cooler creatures. Plus a page-turning plot that I found tremendously satisfying. It really transported me to an exciting place -- which is what all good fiction is supposed to do. Can't wait for the NEXT book in the series. Lorey is a YA author to watch!

This book is for fiction and fantasy buffs of all ages and it was all but impossible to put down. You will easily get wrapped up in the frightening world presented by Lorey in this book. These days there is no shortage of books that involve fantasy, magic, and adventure; however Lorey's combination of those three genres works well. Nightmare Academy also brings a shockingly refreshing amount of originality to the idea of a school for "talented" children, resulting in a resounding triumph for any post-Harry Potter series. I found it very enjoyable.

As a child did you fear the boogeyman in the closet? Or the monster you were certain was under the bed? Guess what, they are real. And a few "gifted" children in the world can bring these creatures home. Every time they have a nightmare a portal opens and one or two of these beasties crosses over. For Charlie these nightmares have cost him friends and granted him low self-esteem and loneliness. Fearing for their child, Charlie's parents home schooled him to avoid the nastiness children give each other if someone is different.

Charlie will awaken one night to a horrible class 5 monster in his room and will meet 3 amazing people; Rex, the wrangler, Tabitha the portal opener, and Pinch the bossy. These 3 will convince Charlie's folks to allow him to attend Nightmare Academy. A strange school designed for training children with the "gift" to battle the monsters.

After a forced show of strength to the Director, Charlie is once again the outcast. Not only does he have this "gift", he's strong, and he's separated further by the knowledge he is a Banisher as well as a Nethromancer. This is rare, what more can Charlie discover to make him a bigger freak.

Friends for Charlie will be finally made, Violet and Theodore (I couldn't help but remember Harry Potter in their mannerisms) and they will help him rescue his parents after a monster abduction.

I read this book in 2 sittings; it's fast paced, easy to read, a page turner, and keeps the reader hooked, nothing boring here. I look forward to the next book. Young and old alike will enjoy this book.

I bought this for my 10-year-old son. He is a reluctant reader. But, he REALLY enjoyed this book. He has to read 30 minutes each night, as part of his daily homework. Often, I found him still reading this book long after the 30 minute timer had gone off! Any book that a reluctant reader can't put down is a good book! He said that the characters were interesting and that the monsters were awesome!

I just finished the book last night and was very pleased with it. It's about certain kids that are gifted in having nightmares! Yes, that's right... nightmares! There imagination is so great that they can actually create a portal and bring the nightmares here to earth! Charlie is one of these kids. He's been an outcast since he can remember because all the kids think he's a freak. His parents have been overly protective of him because of this and don't want him to leave the house. Then pops in the Nightmare Academy. A place where Charlie just might fit in. At the academy, Charlie's gift (and the other children's gift) is used to help protect Earth from all of the creatures of the Netherworld. Is this a place where Charlie can fit in? Will he be able to use his powers to help? How much trouble can he get into? You'll have to read it to find out.
I found this book a very easy read. It kept it's pace and was never boring. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for the next one to come out!

I got this book for my sons ages 9 and 12 as they had just finished "Skullduggery Pleasant" and couldn't find anything else they really liked. One after the other (oldest first)they sat down and finished "Nightmare Academy" in one sitting. Video games were left to the side as they were too interested to see what happened at the end of the book. What more could you want?
