Joshlyn Weaver has always lived with a big secret. Ordinary kids spend their free time going to the movies, hanging out with friends, and searching on the internet.  

But for her, an evening at home usually means entering people's dreams. For many generations, her family has been part of a very powerful and very secretive society of dream walkers. Tasked with the responsibility of lowering the world's general anxiety — which only leads to war and strife in the waking world — their job has always been to stop nightmares before they go too far.
By stopping nightmares while sleeping, they help to stop nightmares in real life. 

But when an ancient feud within the dream walker society resurfaces right when a seemingly unconnected series of very strange and very scary events start occurring during her dream walks, Josh finds herself in a race against time. The one true dream walker has never been known. Could she be the one?





KIT ALLOWAY is an avid quilter who lives in Louisville, KY with her family and four very small dogs. Dreamfire is her debut novel.



This one was pretty slow and drug pretty bad.  The plot was a pretty good and the ending was pretty satisfying. But for me this is a solid 3 stars.  I wish it would have been a little faster paced. I really loved the idea of Dreamwalkers that go in and help people with their nightmares. The other issue the book had was some major info dumping which bogged the story down even more.  I loved learning about Dream Theory but it would have been better if it would have been split up and given to us in little bits vs the long explanations.  

The characters were pretty good but the names were a little hard to get used to. At first I thought the MC was a guy since the name Josh is well a guys name.  But it was just a shortened nick name that was used for the girl.  This goes though-out the book and just made it a little hard to keep track of everyone. Esp. since most of the other names were just like it. There also were a lot of side characters that were pretty much unneeded.  Those made the book even harder to get into. 

As a debut this isn't the worst ive read.
