About the Author

Lillian Bishop and Constance Williams have been writing together for over ten years now. Until now, their audience has been friends and family, and their writing has been purely for pleasure. They both believe that that is what is should be about - after all, if you don’t enjoy writing, how can you expect anyone to enjoy reading what you have written.

Unusually, Lillian and Constance do not live near each other. In fact, they live in entirely different countries. Lillian is American, Constance is British. Their writing partnership began when they were introduced through a mutual friend, and they discovered that they shared a love of the written word, a passion for crafting stories, and a compatible style. Now they are mostly found online - at very odd times of the day and night!

"The Dreamwalker" starts somewhat slow, however about mid-book the pace really picks up and it gets quite exciting! Anyone who enjoys fiction of the supernatural variety, with a little romance and humor tossed in should enjoy this, I look forward to the next installment of the Witch Lake series.

Grabbed this on my Kindle (gotta love the Prime perks) for something to read during my commute, ended up buying a copy I liked it so much! It's a light read, quick and fun but engaging, and the characters manage to really feel real, something most lit aimed at a younger crowd misses on IMHO. The plot takes a minute to really get going, but when it does it's got a good hook to it that'll make you want to burn through the rest, which is easy to do with a book like this. The setting, dialogue, and more fantastical sequences (which I won't spoil, thank me after you read it) all have me eager for more with these characters. Can't wait for the next one to come out!

After years of Vampire Books, it was refreshing to have another choice of reading material. The authors have a unique tale to tell. I was left with...... When is the next book coming out? I would recommend this to teens and adults alike. It was a smooth quick read. Loved it.

Sam Gardener is the new student at Witch Lake High; a place with just as many secrets as there are students. Sam is a Dreamwalker; someone that can enter other people’s dreams. But their dreams are his reality. Their fear of sharks can leave him drowning in bed, their fantasies of gun fighting can leave him with real bullet holes. So Sam avoids everyone to keep from accidentally entering their dreams and never coming out. Rhi is a ghost and a descendant of the McCarthy line of witches called Protectors. Her family has been cursed and the only living McCarthy is under attack from a necromancer hiding in the school. Sam is the only person that can see Rhi and to protect their friendship and his teacher Ms. McCarthy he must learn how to control the dreams that have left him horribly scarred.

I like this book in the same way that I like the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series. It’s fun and vaguely campy, the school and student body have some evil secrets and Sam and his friends must band together to fight back. While the character of Sam is well defined along with his dreamwalking powers I felt that his connections to his friends were ambiguous until it’s just stated that they were now friends. And the antagonist necromancer isn’t really defined as well as I thought he should be seeing’s how he is the central bad guy of the story. I would have enjoyed one or two scenes of him in his basement cooking up something evil (figuratively). What I enjoyed was the mythology of the world, the witches curse, and the tantalizing peeks into the larger things going on in the world. I liked the idea of Sam and his friends romping around people’s dreams and watching Sam as he slowly learns how to become a Dreamwalker rather than a dream bystander.

After disappearing for years, Sam returns to school for his senior year. However, he has not lost his unique ability, the ability to enter others’ dreams. He makes a new friend but finds out she is a supernatural being. However, this friend helps him to understand the mysteries that surround Witch Lake and the people who love there. This book manages to combine several genres into one cohesive whole, which impressed me a lot. I do not normally like many paranormal books, but this one engaged me from the outset. I found myself reading eagerly to see where the authors would take me next. The writing is quite good. I commend the authors for an original paranormal plot and storyline. The characterization is also well done. The ending left me, the reader, eager to read the next book in the series, as it was unexpected and not as totally satisfying as it could be. I enjoyed the method the authors used in the book, though I thought it would only make things harder to understand and follow. Not so. This is a pretty good book for those who enjoy paranormal mysteries, as both are here in abundance. In addition, there is a bit of horror mixed in to keep the reader engaged and wondering. I have not read anything like this or of the author before, but will look for something similar and by the author in the future. They have converted me to this paranormal type story big time. I received this from Library Thing to read and review.

The Dreamwalker is a fun fast read--a great mix of supernatural elements wrapped up in a mystery that keeps you guessing right up to the end. The final twist is great, and not only provides a satisfying conclusion, but also sets up the next book in the series nicely.

The Hero, Sam, is a well-developed character. The main theme of the books is his struggle with his powers. They are the key to unravelling the mystery of Witch Lake, but they also hinder his everyday life, making a normal day at school a potential living nightmare. The feelings of social awkwardness and being an outsider are well-portrayed in the book.

The book doesn't quite live up to its potential though, at least from my point of view. The structure is unusual in that it reveals the story through a series of conversations, rather than action and drama. For example, Sam tells his new friend Rhi about his dangerous demon-filled dreams, but we don't get to experience these encounters with him. Similarly, a friend reveals to Sam that he is a werewolf, but he doesn't actually do anything wolf-like during the course of the story, let alone actually transform. Sam is told how evil the villain of the story is, but this supposed 'big bad' barely enters the story at all, and even the local Sheriff has no reason to suspect him of even a petty crime.

The style of the book is very matter-of-fact too. There is virtually no description. Beyond the evocative name, Witch Lake, there is no attempt made to give the town any character of its own. The school is simply described as the school, a house is a house, a graveyard a graveyard. Even zombies are introduced as zombies, as if they need no further explanation or embellishment.

But these style and structure choices don't detract from the good things about the book, and I imagine future episodes will build on all the things that are only touched on in this opening part.
