Teaser Tuesdays #24: Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Today’s Teaser Tuesday:

Book cover for Dream Strider by Lindsay Smith.
Summary (from Goodreads):

A high-concept, fantastical espionage novel set in a world where dreams are the ultimate form of political intelligence.

Livia is a dreamstrider. She can inhabit a subject’s body while they are sleeping and, for a short time, move around in their skin. She uses her talent to work as a spy for the Barstadt Empire. But her partner, Brandt, has lately become distant, and when Marez comes to join their team from a neighborhing kingdom, he offers Livia the option of a life she had never dared to imagine. Livia knows of no other dreamstriders who have survived the pull of Nightmare. So only she understands the stakes when a plot against the Empire emerges that threatens to consume both the dreaming world and the waking one with misery and rage.

A richly conceived world full of political intrigue and fantastical dream sequences, at its heart Dreamstrider is about a girl who is struggling to live up to the potential before her. 

Goodreads | Book Depository

This book comes out very soon and although I am only about 10% through it, I am really enjoying it!

“Hesse smiled then. ‘I’m going to teach you to dreamstride.'”

    I read another book about “dreamstriding” only it was called Dream Treaders by Wayne Thomas Batson and it was more for junior/intermediate readers. Very interesting. The cover of yours reminds me of that Escher print where the head looks more like an orange rind! Quite intriguing. Here’s my TT from Hoffman’s The Ice Queen: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-VY
