Overview

For twenty years, the Realm of Dreams has been a land ruled by shadows and nightmares, but the day of reckoning is coming. It has long been prophesied that the arrival of a human boy will change the fate of the realm.

Seventeen-year-old Josiah has never believed in destiny, spending his days working for the "family" business until a car accident lands him in the middle of his worst fear-he is living in a nightmare.

When Josiah meets Pentaim, a fierce ninja guardian angel, and is hunted by the realm's tormentors, he sets out on a journey that will test not only his inner strength but everything he has ever believed.

Josiah thought he was simply dreaming, but there was nothing simple about the place he found himself upon awakening. At least he  thinks he’s awake, Josiah keeps pinching himself to make sure. He is told he is in the Realm of Dreams, but don’t let the name fool you, there is nothing dreamy about it. Josiah finds himself teamed up with a group of vigilante’s fighting their way through the dream layers to Abner on the 26th layer. It has taken them many years to make it through only a few, with Josiah’s help the vigilante’s quickly double their efforts. At the end of every layer there is a gatekeeper who must be defeated before the stairway to the next layer is revealed.  This book is full of adventure, a true page turner and it leaves the reader eager for the next installment, be prepared to finish it in one sitting.

Realm of Dreams By: K.A. Vantana This is the first time I have read a novel that is set in realm, Realm of dreams. If you like games then you will love Realm Of Dreams. It felt like I was watching a movie. Vantana did a good job with her characters, you feel like you are right there fighting with them. It is a fantasy and the whole novel is an adventure. It had been prophesied that a human boy will change the realms. Realm of Dreams is a land that is ruled by nightmares and shadows. Josiah is  a seventeen year old teenage boy who spends his days working for his family. Then one day his whole life changed, he is in a car accident and nothing is the same and he has fear of what is to come. I will let you get you a copy and read Realm of dreams and get ready for a ride of your life.. I was given a copy of this book for my honest review and I have given it .

This first book promises that the series is going to be wonderful! This sci-fi/Fantasy is packed with adventure, a unique spin on some classic motifs, and a fresh set of eyes for a wonderful tale. I couldn't help but be drawn in by the characters. Josiah is such a unique protagonist, trapped in a mafia family, but with a heart that hate it. He can be very kind, with a big heart, but also tough as nails. I couldn't help rooting for him the whole time, especially watching him grow from the naive, wide-eyed guest in the Realm to a strong hero. Then you have Pentaim, who, according to the back cover, is "a fierce ninja guardian angel". There is no better words to describe this adorable character! She is a spitfire, and a kick-but heroine, but has such a sweet side. I love the adventure in this fantasy world, full of unique realms, each with its own flavor. The villains are both terrifying and intriguing, and completely evil, and the heroes are so easy to root for. The action is well written, the dialogue is spunky and hilarious, the characters are well drawn out, and the story line is so intriguing, I cannot wait for the next book!

Most of my novel-reading experiences have been centered around historical fiction, Biblical fiction, or modern-day fiction that often transcends into the spiritual realm. This was quite possibly the first time that I had ever read a novel that is set solely in another realm, which just so happened to be The Realm of Dreams. About halfway through the novel, I emailed the author and ecstatically told her how I was envisioning the entire story in movie mode. In all seriousness, this would be a fantastic feature film! I also have to admit that the author won me over to stories written in first person present tense (ie, "I jump to the top of the roof and see..."). Typically, I am a third person past tense purist when it comes to my fiction novel taste (ie, "He jumped to the top of the roof and saw..."). However, the way the author has crafted this fantastic story in a fantastical setting that still resonates so clearly with every one of us who has ever dreamed before (which is probably everyone) absolutely worked with the first person present tense and made me feel very much like I was living through the story with the characters. Speaking of the characters, their development throughout the chapters is very fascinating and well done. Although the protagonist has the lion's share of the personal growth and development for good reason, the whole theme of hope renewed because of his presence causes growth and strengthening in the other characters, as well. The author also adds in the necessary romantic elements and plot twists from exposed pasts to make it a captivating and well rounded story. I am so excited for the sequels now, and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed, either!

Realm of Dreams is an okay read.  It is a little confusing at times and a bit vague.  There are a bunch of new words, creatures that the author has made up for this new world of hers and sometimes it is difficult to keep them straight.  There is also the confusion of which parents the main character, Josiah, is talking about.  He is adopted so it is hard to differentiate between if he is talking about his birth parents or his adoptive parents. The book had a flowing story line but was a bit muddled at times because of the confusion.  There were some likeable characters, such as Lark and Fia and Blaze.  At times the book could be a bit repetitious too.  Get to a new layer, defeat the throne keeper, repeat.  While there is plenty of action, it is sometimes hard to follow. This book is good for any one who likes syfy or fast paste books.  It is short and fast moving.
