This was an interesting story. The author creates a future that could possibly happen. Being microchipped sounds unrealistic, but it's actually something people do fear in the present day. So reading the blurb intrigued me enough to give this book a chance. I'm glad I did because, despite the slow beginning, I ended up enjoying the actual story line.

The MC Amelia basically is a dreamer, which goes against the norm from the creation of Wristcuffs. Dreamers are looked down upon in society, and they are study subjects at the MMC, the creators of the Wristcuffs.

Amelia soon learns the dreams are actual warnings. And I'll stop there with the summary because I don't want to spoil the plot.

I believe this is a great start to the series. There were some areas where the pacing slowed and pulled me out of the story, but the actual story plot outshined those lull periods.

I definitely recommend this book. It's a great debut novel, and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

The storyline is believable, unpredictable, and the relationships between her characters are engaging. Always a good sign this series is going to pull on the heart-strings! I have pre-ordered Fall of the Dreamer already, after reading the teaser in the back of the book. A good start to a promising series!

L.J Higgins creates a believable and scary future. In a tale of questionable morals by big corporations, it makes you wonder just how far the human race is willing to take personal technology. With microchips being inserted to our bank cards in our present, it’s not a stretch to believe we may, one day, be microchipped under our skin.

Plot: The plot gripped me from the beginning and I loved the premise of it. The MMC invents a Wristcuff which is worn over an implanted microchip. It’s marketed as an amazing technology that’s the next step in evolution. It gives you pleasant dreams, and more rest means you’ll be able to focus better, live longer lives, and be healthier than you ever had been.
But what about those who the Wristcuffs don’t work on? The ones who still dream? They’re seen as freaks, untrustworthy, unemployable, and undesirable. The MMC promises to find a cure for those it doesn’t work on so everyone will eventually be able to reap the benefits of the Wristcuff. But the MMC is not as they seem.

Characters: The main character, Amelia, was definitely likeable and relatable. She tended to ramble and get lost in her thoughts a lot, which made her realistic, but also made the book lull at times.
I felt the relationships Amelia formed with the supporting characters were a bit rushed, and we were told how close she and others had become instead of being shown such closeness through dialogue or acts of kindness. Where the relationships do work is the connection between Amelia and Sarah. Their friendship was realistic with its ups and downs.
There’s a love triangle which some people won’t like (I, however loved, because it was handled well and I’m a sucker for that kind of thing. There was never any cheating.

In the near future, the huge and powerful MultiMind Corporation has invented a piece of technology that promises better health and less stress and is, in their words, "the next step in human evolution": the Wristochip. This device, inserted into the wrists of most of the population, effectively eliminates bad thoughts and replaces them with good ones.

Uh-oh.

Amelia Bailey is one of the few people who doesn't seem to be affected by the Wristochip, judging by her horrible nightmares. The MMC treats her in the hopes of finding a "cure" for her condition, which is in fact a front for finding a way to make her, and others like her (called "Dreamers") just another mindless sheep, slave to the MMC's wiles.

When Amelia realizes that her dreams are a warning, she and a handful of others must not only find a way to escape from the MMC's clutches, but to find a way to bring down this powerful corporation, which seems to have the entire country in its thrall.

This was a good story. Amelia was a strong main character, and she was surrounded by a good cast of supporters. The premise was also well set-up, and it was fairly easy to read. However, there were a few plot holes that stretched my imagination a little bit too far to believe the eventual outcome, and that is why I am not giving it five stars.

However, I still do recommend this book, and am looking forward to the next book in the series!

“If you believe in yourself others will believe in you…” - L J Higgins

Dawn of the dreamer is a very rewarding dystopian novel with good pacing and great writing. Amelia’s reality is actually not so far from ours. Phones, tablets, adds, products, shopping… all have become indispensable appendixes to our lives.

Amelia has the ability to not succumb to the power of a mind controlling wristband. She’s seen as an outcast for this. When she learns there is nothing wrong to be able to dream, she begins to believe in herself, she falls in love and she fights for her friends and family against the powerful corporations that manipulate dreams and world.

I couldn’t put it down. It takes us on a journey to stand up for freedom and for our dreams. Usually, endings are hard to write and they mostly disappoint people. This was not the case, although this is a trilogy, the book stands alone perfectly and it ends in a very satisfying way.

I would recommend this book to all of those who have been living under the shadow of a selfish friend/ relationship.
You can stand for yourself and make choices of your own.
