Publisher Comments:

“It is like nothing else Ive ever read. The characters are so real, youll feel like you know exactly what they look like and how their voices sound and what they would say or do in any given situation. More than that, youll want to hang out with them. Then the world is so amazing and unique. You will want to go there. You will want to walk into ‘the Place. And you will want to sleep in a dream opera.”—Stephenie Meyer, The Twilight Saga
 
The dreamhunting began as a beautiful thing, when Tziga Hame discovered that he could enter the Place and share the dreams he found there with other people. But Tziga Hame has disappeared and Laura, his daughter, knows that the dreams have turned sour. The wealthy still experience sweet dreams, but the government has been using nightmares to keep the convicts obedient and content. On St. Lazaruss Eve, when elite citizens gather in the dream palace, Laura is determined to show them the truth. She plunges them into the nightmare used to control the convicts. But as she struggles to counter the governments sinister plans, a deeper mystery surfaces, a puzzle only Laura can unravel, a puzzle having to do with the very nature of the Place. What is the Place, after all? And what does it want from her?

Synopsis:

The explosive and captivating sequel to Dreamhunter, in which the meaning of the Place where dreams come from is finally revealed.

In this follow-up to Knox's Dreamhunter, we continue to follow Laura Hame and the government's involvement in dream hunting. The story does splinter into a few more fragments and increases our exposure to Laura's cousin and Maime, the daughter of a corrupt government official. There is also a minor love story, which I find a bit inappropriate for young readers, thus I recommend this book for youth ages 13 and up. Definitely take time to discuss the book with your teenager though, as Knox introduces teen pregnancy and incest (I think - the end of the book is very vague and may leave you underwhelmed and annoyed). Overall, Knox writes very well and Dreamquake does a allright job of bringing this story to an end.
