    *Source* Publisher *Genre* Young Adult, Paranormal *Rating* 3.5-4 *Thoughts* Dream Keeper is the first installment in author Amber R. Duell's The Dark Dreamer Trilogy. A fair warning, this story is dark. There are grotesque death scenes that may not be suitable for those who ar...

    Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream?Amber R. Duell?s DREAM KEEPER is a refreshingly unique read that fulfilled this fantasy lover?s dream of finding another hidden gem in the treasure chest of great reading! Nora has always met the Sandman in her dreams, but when she becomes a suspe...

    This was such an engaging and entertaining foray into the dream and nightmare-scape. Such imagination was expanded here and I was ever so fascinated by the Sandman himself. If I'm being honest here he was hands down my favourite character in Dream Keeper by far: and the best thin...

    I received this book from Netgalley. It was well-written and very readable, but the combination of juvenile language and the extreme death depicted as well as other adult themes was a little confusing when put together as it made it hard to work out who this was aimed at. I guessed the...

    A trip in Dreamland holds so much more than expected, especially when it comes to what lurks in the shadows. Nora isn't sure whether she's crazy or not, but it doesn't matter. She needs to hide her vivid dreams and hallucinations no matter what, or it's back in therapy with her. Not...

    Thank you to the author for the free copy. It?s much appreciated. Here?s the thing. I really like this book. But I also got a little bored towards the end and skimmed. The story is great. Very creepy in the best way possible. I was loving the imagery and how grotesque it could b...

    I received this book for free from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Let's begin with how gorgeous the cover for Dream Keeper is because it is one heck of a beauty. In a way, it gives off...

    OK, so right now I am flailing at the thought of this not having another instalment until heavens know when. Flailing so hard that the flapping of my arms and gums could probably cool bystanders in this disgusting summer heat. I have already posted my appreciation to Instagram, Twitter...

    This book is vividly full of nightmares that will make your skin crawl. I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked this book up, but descriptions that made me truly shudder was not one of them. This book propels readers into a world of dreams, somewhat reminiscent of Freddy Krueger, an...

    *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley* Ever wondered what Freddy Krueger might feel? Or if someone would love him? Well, in Dream Keeper, we get to know what I would call his "cute little brother", the Sandman, who to my surprise, isn't evil at all. It a...

    I didn't finish this book and stopped at the half. Not because I didn't like it at all, I was rather entertained, but because of some important things lacking and suddenly some insufferable ones appearing. From the very beginning I had some great difficulties suspending my belief ab...

    Such an amazing tale! The Sandman and the Weaver of Nightmares. Wonderful writing and world building, just wonderful, I tell you. It?s days later, and I?m still thinking about the picturesque night realm that author Amber R. Duell has created. The characters are relatable, t...

    I'm more ashamed at myself that it took me over a week to finish this book, but I just could not get into it as much as I was hoping too. In fact, more times than not, when I had time to read I chose to read a different book that I've read numerous times already. Honestly though, it wa...

    Right off the bat, I was extremely intrigued by this book. I've read three other stories by Duell, so I knew the writing was going to be flawless and the story would be unique. I was not disappointed! First off, I'm going to say I don't get scared or need a blanket when reading a da...

    Well now, I have to admit that the first thing drawing me into Dream Keeper would have to be that beautiful cover. But once I took a glance at what the book would be about I couldn?t help but be curious. As a long time fan of horror the line ?start mysteriously dying gruesome death...

    This book blew me away! I was addicted to it from the very first chapter and had a hard time putting it down. Duell does an exceptional job pulling the reader into the world of Dreams and introduces us to a darker concept of the night world where nightmares seep into reality. Her take ...

    I was lucky enough to read an early copy of this book! It's just the sort of fantastical escape that I enjoy. The dream world Amber creates is so beautiful and terrifying, the villain compelling, and I can't even being to describe the ending. Let's just say I need book 2 immediately. I...
