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!

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. The characters do a lot of rambling as they fill in plot points with large chunks of dialogue. The interesting part is that the characters realize this, apologize for it, and then continue with the rambling. I wish there was more showing instead of telling. While the ending was rather lackluster the story often alludes to several wondrously bizarre things going in the small town of Witch Lake and I can’t wait to see how Sam and his dreamwalking ability resolves those conflicts.
This plot is simply fantastic- very original and creative. I don't want to give away any spoilers, so I'll simply say that the idea behind this story is fascinating, and had my imagination spinning. The mystery and suspense presented was exciting and intriguing. The main characters were very interesting, all having their own secrets and problems. The side characters helped create a well rounded story, and gave it a sense of depth. The surprises that popped up were awesome, and the ending was completely unexpected, and left me wanting more.
The overall writing was good, although the writing style and I clashed a bit. Some parts seemed redundant, and slightly like repetitive filler, and there were some grammar issues. I did very much enjoy reading this book, though! The authors did a fantastic job of pulling me into Sam's world, showing what his life is like, living with the dangerous supernatural ability he has. Overall, I feel this is a solid four star mystery adventure. Definitely a book I'd recommend to any YA, supernatural, or paranormal fan.
*I was given an ebook copy of this book, from the authors, to read in exchange for an honest review.
The Dreamwalker is a mix of sorts. It combines fantasy, horror and drama. It captures part of the life of a high school student who has returned to public school to finish out his senior year. His abilities of entering others' dreams caused numerous past problems for him. But here he begins to learn ways in which to turn the current curse into more of a gift.
I really liked the imagination put into the story. It wasn't a copy of something else I've read, so it was new for me. The authors pushed the boundaries nicely, and wrote in a way that I could care about the characters, and what happened to them. The ending was satisfying and made way for the next book. I think The Dreamwalker was worth the read. The suspense pulled me in--especially at the end, and the creative thought put into the plot made it enjoyable.
