Today I have a review & giveaway for you of a very fun book, The Search for Shadow Key by Wayne Thomas Batson. This is a chapter book for older kids. My 10-year old loves these books, but I also enjoy them. This is the 2nd book in the Dreamtreader’s series published by Thomas Nelson. See my post about the first one here. My son was really excited to get the second book in the series. We both really enjoyed the first book, and this second one is just as fun and exciting.
When you go to sleep, your dreams take you on adventures. These books are about those adventures. The dreamt readers are warriors who are chosen to go into the dream world and defend the waking world from the nightmares of the dream world.
At the end of the first book, the main character, Archer defeated the nightmare Lord, but there were still breaches in the dream world. The breaches get larger when people who are not supposed to be there (the Lucid Walkers) come into the Dream World. Archer’s job is to repair all of these breaches, but they are growing out of control and he can’t keep up. If the breaches get too big, there will be a rift. A Rift will allow the two worlds to be mixed together and create chaos.
The Lucid Walkers have created a company to take people into the Dream World and experience it. They are paying tons of money to go in and do this. They don’t care what happens to dream world, they just want to have a good time.
Archer notices that weird things are happening in the real world and is trying to find a way to stop it. The only way to do that is by finding the shadow key. The key is a powerful object that can allow the user to rule both worlds and have all power.
It is great to have fun, clean fiction for my kids to read, so I definitely recommend this series. It is exciting and interesting. It keeps the attention of many ages of readers. If you are interested in winning a copy of this book, enter the giveaway form below!
