I enjoyed this book a lot. Once the boy was thrown in there, it was a page turner for sure! I did feel like some scenes were stilted and could have been elaborated on or even just described in more detail. Some I felt like because of how low key they played out, I kind of had an idea where the book would lead. But overall, it was a great read and I would recommend it for other readers! I have to add that I'm surprised the cover didn't have any golden elements to it :) I received this book in exchange for an honest review. ;)

Title: Dreamscape: Saving Alex Author: Kirstin Pulioff Genre: Young Adult Fantasy Format: Ebook Pages: 348 Rating: 4 Heat: 1- Kissing Main Characters: Alex, Arrow Thoughts: I liked the premise for this book but was confused by all the differences between playing the game and living the game. It was more like Alex was taken to another world, not sucked into a video game. Other than that I really enjoyed the story. Alex started out like any other selfish, angry teenager and throughout all the “levels” grew into a more mature young adult. Great message of learning to move forward and see life as one big adventure while remembering and cherishing the past but learning to let go of it. The relationship between Alex and Arrow was one of the best parts, a total live for the moment type thing and appreciate what you have instead of fearing when you might lose it. Overall a very well written, full of adventure, coming of age book. I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Reviewed by Faridah Nassozi for Readers' Favorite In Dreamscape: Saving Alex by Kirstin Pulioff, Alexis Stone's life as she knew it was coming to an end and there was nothing she could do about it. Her mom had just informed her that instead of the three months they had promised her before relocating, they had to move immediately. Enlisting the help of her best friend, Alexis begun to grudgingly pack up her room. Imagine the girls' delightful surprise when they discovered their childhood favourite video game, Dreamscape, in the back of Alexis' closet. The two had played the game countless times when they were little. When Alexis pressed a wrong code in an attempt to play the game one more time, she had no idea of the door she was about to open. Just like that, she magically found herself living in the strange world that she had always maneuvered as a video game. With panic and excitement, Alexis was determined to find her way back home, after all she knew all the tricks from years of playing the game. But nothing she had seen on the screen could have prepared her for the challenges of adventures that lay ahead of her; now that Dreamscape was real, so were the dangers. Can she safely manoeuvre the challenges and find her way back home? Have you ever imagined yourself as a real life character in your favorite video game? The thought is equal parts scary and equal parts exciting. Kirstin Pulioff gives you a chance to see how it would feel to have this dream come true with her captivating YA story. This exciting adventure is vividly brought to life through a brilliant plot and unforgettable characters set in the magical world of Dreamscape. I loved the idea of two little girls playing video games and then a girl super hero; it breaks so many stereotypes. Dreamscape: Saving Alex is not your everyday YA fantasy novel. The story brilliantly blends adventure, fantasy, action, suspense, some YA romance, and a mesmerizing setting to give you a thrilling reading experience.

I have read a few things by Kirstin Pulioff, and I continue to be impressed with how well she sets up scenes. Through her descriptions, I felt like I was trying to save the queen with Alex. I especially loved how Alex, who was unsettled with her "real" life, was expected to be the savior in another realm. As a hero, Alex still admitted when she was confused or uncertain how to navigate a game that was more than a game once she entered its world. The book was a quick read with enough tension to make me want to keep reading to find out how it ended. I look forward to reading more of Kirstin Pulioff's work. I received an electronic copy in return for an honest review.
