"Remarkable, riveting, disorienting and dark." —Madeleine Roux, New York Times bestselling author of the Asylum series

A Nightmare on Elm Street meets Inception in this gripping psychological thriller from international bestselling author Amy Plum. Seven teenagers who suffer from debilitating insomnia agree to take part in an experimental new procedure to cure it because they think it can’t get any worse. But they couldn’t be more wrong.

When the lab equipment malfunctions, the patients are plunged into a terrifying dreamworld where their worst nightmares have come to life—and they have no memory of how they got there. Hunted by monsters from their darkest imaginations and tormented by secrets they’d rather keep buried, these seven strangers will be forced to band together to face their biggest fears. And if they can’t find a way to defeat their dreams, they will never wake up.

Dreamfall is perfect for fans of dark and edgy young adult novels from authors like Danielle Vega, Natasha Preston, Kendare Blake, and Madeleine Roux. It is the first book in a spine-tingling duology full of action, suspense, and horror that's sure to keep readers on the edge of their seat until the very last page.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Such an original story! Actual Rating 3.5 I went into this book not knowing anything except that I loved Amy's other series and that this was some kind of sci-fi book. I was happily surprised while reading it when it had a little bit of horror and maybe some paranormal to it! I really loved the idea that these teens are in some kind of dream world (or nightmare world in their case) and that one by one they try to survive each other's nightmares. It was also interesting to see them try and figure out the rules and what exactly is going on. I loved all the characters and seeing them bond because they all have some mental health issues was nice. There was no judging, just an overall acceptance of each other and the need to survive. My favourite part is that we get the perspective of one character who isn't in the dreamworld. He's in the science lab monitoring their bodies and trying to figure out how the experiment went so wrong and what none of the kids are waking up. I don't know too much about science but it was pretty cool learning a few things and seeing what was going on from his view. The only reason I gave it 3.5 stars was because I found the beginning a little slow and some parts didn't give me all the information I wanted. I think the whole book could have used a few more pages since it was way shorter than I expected! I'm really looking forward to reading book two and seeing what else could possibly happen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Breath-taking (in the most literal meaning) Battle for Survival and Sanity! Wow! It was so thrilling and fun! Amy Plum really gives this story her all, in my opinion. The characters are interesting and each has their own personality well-defined. I must admit I was fond of two of them in particular: Cata and Fergus. There's a lot of chase by monsters worthy of nightmares (and I can tell you a lot about those, believe me) and it's creepy. Just like I wanted it to be. The story is surprisingly told from multiple point of views, including Jaime, who's a witness to the experiment gone wrong. I think this brings a lot of depth to the story. It's intriguing, really. You never quite know what to expect and it's satisfying in a twisted kind of way. The writing flows well and changes slightly from character to the next. Besides the horrors written in these pages, the best parts are the plot twists. I, for one, always see them coming from miles ahead... This time, I knew something was off, but I couldn't figure them out! What a joy! Finally, I was surprised in a book. It happens so rarely so let me pull out the champagne please *pulls out a bottle and pours a glass for me and you - unless you're underage, then it's just grape juice, sorry not sorry*. If you love angsty (all these teenagers have huge issues), dramatic, thrilling, and creepy stories, read Dreamfall by Amy Plum! Now I'll just sit here and wait for the second volume of her duology, Neverwake. It'll be my perfect birthday gift from myself to myself (yes, I do that! Plus, it's coming out in May... guess when my birthday is? YES!) But seriously, read it. There were no boring parts and I kept wanting to know more about the characters, the story, the horrors, and everything else! In one word? Amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If Inception had Nightmares You have seven teenagers with different sleep disorders entering an experimental treatment to treat their debilitating insomnia. When something goes wrong in the experiment, they all get trapped in one big nightmare reliving each of their nightmares. It's told from three perspectives, Cata and Fergus (two of the participants in the experiment) and Jaime (a premed student observing the experiment) It's a quick read but be warned, it ends in a cliffhanger! I can't wait for the next book!
