The Dreamtreaders Series, Book 2
Wayne Batson
Juvenile Fiction / Action & Adventure


When you close your eyes at night and fall asleep, your dreams can either take you into delightful adventures beyond your wildest imagination or into nightmares that you can't wait to wake up and leave behind. 

But what happens when you can't leave them behind?

Archer Keaton may seem pretty normal, but he has a hidden secret: he can explore dreams. As a dreamtreader, Archer is one of three warriors selected from each generation to defend the Waking World from the evil forces in the Dream. But after the other two dreamtreaders were killed. Archer is left all alone to protect the Dream.

Dream Inc.'s wealthy patrons are lining up left and right to go on "safari" in the Dream to experience the fantastical realm. But as Dream Inc. continues to operate, strange things begin happening around Archer's hometown--which means something is tearing huge rifts in the Dream fabric, and the Dream and Waking World are in danger of fusing together in one, chaotic nightmare. And it seems the only way to stop the madness is to find the mysterious Shadow Key.

This second book in the Dreamtreaders trilogy from bestselling author Wayne Thomas Batson is not only an epic fantasy steeped in  mystery, but also features important themes like resisting temptation, being a light in the darkness, and making wise choices, even when those choices are unpopular or difficult.

My Thoughts

Search for the Shadow Key is the follow up to last year's hit Dreamtreaders. Just like the first book it is a fast-paced fantasy that is sure to capture the attention of teens and tweens alike. While it is a fantasy type of book it has a very practical message that should strike a cord with the youth in the real world.

If your son or daughter has ever been in a situation where they faced temptation and had to make a decision that would perhaps have uncomfortable results then they will surely relate to the story of Archer Keaton. I liked how honestly the author portrayed the traps that teens can find themselves in. Another aspect of the story that I appreciated was the element of strong family ties. Archer's family isn't perfect but they love each other and support each other. That is a very needed message in this day and age.

I have to admit that fantasy books are not on the top of my desired reading, but this series is so well written that I couldn't help but enjoy it. If you have a child that loves action and adventure stories I think they will enjoy this one. This is book two in the series and in my opinion I think it is important that you read book one first to get the complete story.
