by Lindsay Smith, is a high-concept, fantasy spy novel set in a world
where dreams are the ultimate form of political intelligence.
I dream, mostly good stuff, some weird stuff. I remember them too, and I dream in colour.
In this book Livia can enter other peoples dreams...
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 neighboring
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.
