“You walk the bridges between two worlds, between reality and dreams, Ciso.”

“You are a Dreamwalker”

Narciso di Angelo, a sixteen-year-old boy, living on the streets of Rome thinks he is the only one that can walk in other’s dreams.

He’s not.

When a mysterious and dark woman makes her appearance in one of his dreamwalks, he is rescued from her clutches by Project Somnus, a secret underground United Nations organisation, that recruits and trains children with his gifts, using them to fight against and prevent worldwide terrorist threats.

Here Narciso learns more of his abilities and where they come from as well as what it means to be part of a family and a home.

But, as the threat of the mysterious woman and the terrorist organisation Tantibus increases, he also learns what it is like to lose this.

“In dreams we live. In reality we dream.”

Narciso di Angelo is a sixteen-year-old boy living on the streets of Rome, and he thinks he’s the only one who can walk in another person’s dreams. He’s not. A dark, mysterious woman appears during one of his dreamwalks, and he’s narrowly rescued from her clutches by Project Somnus, a secret underground UN organisation recruiting and training children with his gifts.

He learns more about his ability and the meaning of home and family while training with Project Somnus, but a dark threat remains and he risks losing it all.

Dreamwalkers reads like X-Men meets Heroes, and it’s set in Rome and Italy, which I really liked considering it’s one of my favorite countries. I also enjoyed the plot, some of the plot twists I didn’t see coming at all. The writing is excellent and flows fluently, which is great for a YA book. From the moment you start reading, you’re right in the middle of the action, right alongside the characters.

I also liked the characters, in particular Narciso. He grows and changes a lot throughout the book, becoming more confident in his abilities and who he truly is; I found I like him better with each passing chapter.

This is a great read for young adults who enjoy fantasy books about people with special powers. The dreamwalking ability is unique and I enjoyed exploring Narciso’s special ability. Recommended to fans of YA fantasy.
