Alooway applaud you Alloway, you kept me guessing the entire time. When I thought something was going to happen, you turned around and said “plot twist! You also pulled strong emotions out of me, when something amazing happened to a character I rooted for them, and when something tragic happened I wanted to throw the book across the room.
Overall I enjoyed reading this book, there was never a point where I felt like I had to force myself to read throu. Overall I enjoyed reading this book, there was never a sreamfire where I felt like I had to force myself to read through a chapter, to see if the next one was going to be any better.
The story flowed easily and it had a decent pace, not too fast or too slow. The concept of this book is really interesting, and the themes fit perfectly. There are enough characters to keep things interesting, and they have varying personalities. I give this book 4. The romance was tragic, cruel, and heart breaking.
The whole struggle of identity, and destiny for some of the characters was also a good theme, because it created most of the issues. The character interactions felt real and genuine, they weren’t too fast or too forced. So please Kit, write a sequel.

Where are the champagne?! I am getting goosebumps all over my skin as I type this. I don’t even know how I’m going to review this book in the most logical, coherent way possible.
This book is awesome. It’s written so, so well that my mind is still so blown away at how amazingly thought-out everything here is. It was all just so natural. Take the world-building for example. Basically, in this world, kkit is another realm where all dreams ikt place – all the happy dreams, all the nightmares, and this realm plays a big part in the world’s balance as a whole.
If there are too many nightmares going on, it would mean the end of both worlds. That’s where Dream Walkers like Josh come in, people who have been resolving nightmares for generations. It may sound really simple, and you may be thinking, “Meh, that doesn’t sound complex at all.
DREAMFIRE by Kit Alloway | Kirkus Reviews
It may feel slow because of this, though which seems to be the complaint of many reviewersand I wouldn’t blame you if it feels to you that way if you read this, but for me, it was alolway a problem because the writing made up for it. The writing was so delicious to consume.
I just loved how smooth and lyrical the narration was, and how it effectively gave life to the story and to the characters effortlessly. Speaking of characters, can I just say that I love how Josh was so realistic and flawed at the same time? And these flaws were shown so realistically – she would be praised for her skills, and she would put walls around her and then think that if she were, what happened in the past wouldn’t have happened. She would get away from a dire situation, and she would kut herself for letting it happen in the first place.
They were all handled so sensitively, resolved gradually and realistically, and they even compliment the storyline at the same time. I loved how he was such a genuine partner to Josh, how he complimented her aggressive, reckless nature with his cautiousness and compassion. I loved how even though he was the love interest, his “development” with Josh never took center stage – they were all alloay the background and even moved alongside the real storyline.
It made me yearn for scenes with both of them even more. Will Kansas is my current book boyfriend, and he won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. I know I’ve talked about this book in length already.
I just can’t get enough of this book, if you haven’t noticed yet. If you loved The Diviners by Libba Bray, you’ll definitely want this because that’s the feel I got from this book. But even if you don’t know that book, you guys definitely need to read this. It’s just so beautifully and masterfully written.
View all 10 comments. Jan 07, Aditi rated it really liked it Shelves: The series unfolds the life of a teenage dream-walker who walks tens and thousands of nightmares of common people to save them from the fear of the nightmare grasping them forever. This is a no-ordinary story of a very ordinary teenager walking the dreams and nightmares and how heroically gives up her life to protect the Dream world to maintain the balance in the universe, while dealing with her own mistakes and problems.
Ordinary kids spend their free time going to the movies, hanging out with friends, and searching on the internet. For many generations, her family has been part of a very powerful and very secretive society of dream walkers. Tasked with the responsibility of lowering the world’s general anxiety — which only leads to war and strife in the waking world — their job has always been to stop nightmares before they go too far.
But when an ancient feud within the dream walker society resurfaces right when a seemingly unconnected series of very strange and very scary events start occurring during her dream walks, Josh finds herself in a race against time. Josh is an average year old girl who is trained at a tender age to be a dream-walker to resolve nightmares of common people thus restoring balance between the Dream World as well as The World, where we live in.
At 17, every dream-walker follows a common ritual where they receive a scroll predicting their future. But this world of Dream is not that perfect, if you let the fear of the nightmare catch you, you might get caught up in the Dreamfire, or else stuck up in the dream of some human being forever. But when this dream world is threatened to wake up the True Dream Walker as per the legend, Josh along with her apprentice, Will and her friend, Haley, opens up a way to this threatening part of the dream to save her people as well as to protect the Dream World from being destroyed.
Will she be able to protect it? The author’s writing style is fantastic and considering this is the author’s debut book, the writing as well as the story building felt like it came out from the minds of some seasoned YA fantasy author.
Dream Walker Series
The world building is intricately done with lots of minute details, which I agree is bit slow, but it is necessary for the readers to gradually seep into the heart of the story.
The author has even used simple diagrams as well as Venn Diagrams to explain the difference between The World we live in as well as the Dream World and how one can traverse from one world to another and many more dream-walking legends and theories. The narrative style is eloquent and quite free-flowing, and has been kept easy for the readers to easily sync into the story. The characters are all very well developed, especially the main character and her apprentice- Josh and Will.
I must say, these two characters are bound to leave a lasting impression in the minds of the readers even after the end of the story. Josh and Will are very simple and average teens, but has a lot of determination and alloway and will power to achieve extraordinary goals, even if they have to fight for it, they would rather do it.
The secondary characters like Deloise, Windsor, Whim, etc are also quite strongly developed and are very real with their emotions, dialogues and demeanor. The romantic angle between Josh and Will is featured with lots of emotions and the readers can easily comprehend with this young teenage love. Honestly, Aalloway incited a fire within me to know more what happens next to Josh, Will and her family and friends, when the story ended with a cliffhanger.
And I can’t wait to read Dreamfeverthe next book in the series. In short, the book is not at all dreamy or silent as the name suggests, instead it is one hell of a roller coaster ride filled with actions, drama and evil men lurking in the nightmares, and even Hitler too!!
A YA series that you definitely need to shelve as well jit read! Thanks to the author, Kit Alloway, for giving me an opportunity to read and review this book.

The setting was really interesting. The dream walkers operate as a secret society with their own ri This review appears on Happy Indulgence. The dream walkers operate as a secret society with their own rituals, such as inducting people into the society when they turn 17, having extremely long names and having a scroll that can tell their future.
It took me a long time to warm to the book though, as it gets bogged down with lengthy and complicated explanations on dream theory. I struggled to stay interested all the way through and ending up skimming the book partway through. Once I warmed up to the characters though, I started to appreciate them. Josh is a reserved, cold and damaged character who is incredibly talented with dream walking.
