After the death of her mother, eighteen year old Chloe Hawthorn is haunted by terrifying nighttime hallucinations. Determined to take control of her dream journeys, she uses them to find Shane Anderson, a charming and troubled musician whose online videos have been holding her in thrall. She finds him in the Dreamtime, sweating out heroin detox in a run-down rehab center.
Chloe sets out to find Shane in the waking world and discovers her dreams have been taking her into the past. Horrified, Chloe realizes Shane doesn’t survive his addictions. In order to save him, Chloe must master her Australian mother’s legacy — the secret of walking the Dreaming through time. But what price will Chloe pay for this Dreamwalk and will she save Shane only to lose him forever?
“This is one of my favorite books that I have read this year. I found myself so attached to Chloe that I am having a hard time letting go of her still. . . This book kept me up at night and I never wanted to stop reading it as I wanted to know what was going to happen next. The ending blew me away and was unexpected.” Night Owl Reviews Top Pick http://romance.nightowlreviews.com/nor/Reviews/Black-Rose-reviews-Dreamwalk-by-Sarah-Macmanus.aspx
“Hauntingly dark and mysterious, Dreamwalk is a compelling read. Set against the nebulous backdrop of the dream world, author Sarah MacManus’ winding tale is rife with one surprising twist after another… Poetically crafted with a subtle, yet powerful lyrical flair, Dreamwalk is an engrossing read. Recommended for fans of unconventional teen romance tales.” Morgan Drake, Apex Reviews
“I really enjoyed this book. It’s beautiful and meaningful and surreal and different. I loved the use of Austrailian mythology (something you almost never see), and the personal growth the heroine and her love experience. This is YA and young love done right, and I can’t wait to see what Sarah MacManus does next.” You’re Killing Me Reviews http://ykmreviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/033-dreamwalk-by-sarah-macmanus.html
