A New Dream

Y'all please forgive my absence. One of the kids had baseball tournament last week and last night we started VBS at our church. Summer at its finest! I hope I can make it up to you with a little giveaway today......

The latest book I have received (for free) to review for you as a Tommy Mommy is Wayne Thomas Batson's newest book Dreamtreaders. I've always found dreams to be intriguing and personal. I'm a "non-dreamer." Well I know everyone dreams but I very rarely remember them. My son is the same. My husband is a vivid dreamer and sometimes talks and physically acts out the dreams while he is sleeping (imagine a police officer fighting in his sleep...). Our daughter also seems to remember a great deal of her dreams.

Batson has a vivid imagination and his books always portray that. In Dreamtreaders, Archer is a normal teenage boy by day but a dream treader at night. He is commissioned by Gabriel (along with 2 others) to stitch up breaches made by the Nightmare Lord. He goes into the dream world and each night has a limited amount of time to repair damages. He faces all sorts of turmoil and trouble and recently his two fellow dreamtreaders have gone missing. He has helpers and meets many characters during his nightly journeys. Of course the Nightmare Lord is not pleased with Archer's work and so he begins to attack those closest to Archer through nightmares.

Similar to The Door Within (click the link for my review), this book contains a dark, mysterious world with many references to the Bible. These books are definitely for the mature juvenile reader. Because I have let Apple read The Door Within trilogy and she did okay with it I will also let her read Dreamtreaders. Parents I always recommend reading or scanning through books yourself to determine if your child is ready for them.

So if you think they are then enter the giveaway below! One reader will be randomly selected to receive a copy of Dreamtreaders. To receive the entry for comments please follow the Giveaway Tool widget instructions and read the question I'm asking! :)

I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.


  1. This sounds like interesting book to read.

  2. They have good dreams and sometimes bad. I teach them to pray when they get scared by the bad ones.

  3. Unfortunately they really only share their dreams when they are bad ones. We pray every night for them to only have good dreams.


I LOVE comments!!! Post away!
