Dreamhunter and Dreamquake By Elizabeth Knox

Monday, November 30, 2009

At first when I started reading this book, I didn't think it was going to be for me. It is set back in the early 1900's and they talk like that too. Plus at first I was a little confused. But I sucked it up and kept going and I am really glad I did. It was amazing. And such a neat concept too. I just can't even imagine where she came up with it..

Well as I said before its in the early 1900's and it is based on this small family. Actually 2 families but you really think of them as one especially since they all live together. At one point Lauras father Tziga was on a horse carriage and suddenly fell off and was in another place. He actually discovered This Place where you can catch dreams and then project them to other sleeping people around you, like a movie. He became the best dream catcher there was. He caught the rarest dreams no one else could find. You were pretty much guaranteed to be rich if you could make into "The Place". Every year many would try but only a few could actually get in. And out of those few only a smaller number could actually catch and project dreams.

Laura's father ends up disappearing mysteriously and under strange circumstances. They feel the government has did something. Laura and her cousin Rose Try to see if they will go into The Place but only Laura gets in. Laura lives with her Aunt and Uncle and cousin Rose. Her mom died when she was young. And her Aunt is a famous dreamhunter also. Once in The Place Laura starts discovering all sorts of odd things. She doesn't catch dreams other people catch even those she is sleeping right next to. She also discovers a family secret which helps her in finding her dad and unlocking The Places secrets.

The Place isn't really all that it seems and no one can figure out how or when it got there. But in the end Laura does. It almost kills her doing it. She almost loses everyone she loves. She even almost loses her mind and her freedom. There is just so much that takes place between these 2 books and it will keep you wanting more and more!!
