I really loved this book! It had an incredible and totally suprising ending! I love Nye's writing style and I hope she continues to write books based in Dreamland.

Alright, fantasy books are not my style, but in my defence, I was desperate. However though I liked this one! Roan is a compelling and caring character, although it is hard to believe someone could be that ultruistic. Interesting background. The minor character's became confusing at times, but what can you expect when everything and everyone is in a state of permament flux(is that an oxymoron? or a double negative?) :) Waking in dreamland is good, school of light, the sequel, is skipable.

In the Dreamland, everything is based on the whim of the Seven Sleepers. Everything is constantly changing: the land, the weather, the way people look, even their sexes. To the inhabitants of Dreamland, all of this is normal. What *isn't* normal is Roan. Roan doesn't change. He has looked the same all his life. Now, some of the scientists from Dreamland have decided to try and wake the Sleepers. The general belief throughout Dreamland is that without the dreams of the Sleepers, Dreamland would cease to exist. These scientists want to test that theory, even at the cost of their existence. It's now up to Roan and his friends to stop them. The setting of this novel is refreshing in its uniqueness. However, it seems that in an attempt to make the novel longer, Roan and his friends are faced with obstacle after obstacle, each more ridiculous than the last. Almost invariable, Roan somehow manages to save the day. Granted, the whole premise for this novel is farfetched, but it started getting out of hand. The ending, on the other hand, is interesting and was totally unexpected. Read this book because it's different, but don't expect anything too involved or in-depth.

Jody Lynn Nye is a normally talented, wonderful author. Her books are a fun read. This was the exception, and the sequel isn't much better. The book meandered through Dreamland, and seems as if it is a poorly designed take-off of Neverending Story (the movie, not the book). It is confusing, with numerous 'save the day' rescues by Roan and his crew. Stick with other of Ms. Nye's works, and avoid this one!

A bitter disapointment from a normally talented author. Waking in dreamland might as well have been a Zanth novel. After so many good books, if baffles me how this author could fall so low. Jody, you've been hanging around Anne McCaffrey too long.
