***Winner of a 2013 Newbury Comics Award!***
When sisters Kiva and DeeDee Stone discover a mysterious plot that threatens them and everything they care about, they have to take a crash course in the ancient art of DreamKeeping to survive. As two elder Dream Keepers lead them up the Varruvyen river to the Eyle of Return, they show the girls how to gain dream powers greater than anything they had ever imagined. But can they become strong enough to face the monsters that haunt their dreams at night, strong enough to fight the enemies that draw nearer each day? The answer lies somewhere in the broken history of Orora Crona, the Valley of Dreams lost centuries ago, and whoever can piece it together first will rule for centuries to come.

The Buzz About the Book
“This book is more than it seems at first glance. PHT Bennet’s book is also a soundtrack, a dream journal and a puzzle box, all contained in a highly presentable, beautifully illustrated, intuitive package. The story is right up the YA genre’s alley, and its message is self-enabling, inspiring and surely of interest to anyone interested in exploring their own dreamscapes… A highly recommended interactive experience. ” ~ Michael H., Amazon
“Full of fabulous settings and a myriad of imaginative creatures, wonderfully described, the novel brings the reader into a fully realized world that is both fantastic and real.” ~ Thomas G., Amazon
“The ebook is a wonderful version with gorgeous illustrations, and the app (available for iphones & ipads) is an even more immersive reading experience with amazing original music scores throughout the book, rich and fun illustrations, and an extra bonus of challenges for kids to solve!” ~ Mimi, Goodreads
About the Author: P.H.T. Bennet
P.H.T. Bennet began exploring the world of the dreams when he was a child and never bothered to stop when he grew up. He had the good luck to have two daughters, Juliette and Paola, who not only served as the inspirations for DeeDee and Kiva, but also shared their dreams and helped him turn their family dreamwork sessions into this book. His lucky streak grew when he married his lovely wife, Mim, who tolerates his turning on a light in the middle of the night to write down ever-crazier dreams and talking about them in the morning as long as he lets her sleep in, first.
Though flying dreams are his favorite, he also loves the challenge of rewinding, replaying, and revising nightmares until they have much more interesting (and less brutal) endings, the thrill of breathing and swimming at high speeds underwater, the surprise of creating new works of art, the dangers in meeting, battling, and learning from his Shadow as it changes forms, the delight of returning to Paris, where he lived for 5 years, for delicious meals, and the peacefulness he gets from dream visits with his father, who passed away four years ago. He can’t wait to hear what readers favorite dreams are and what dream skills they hope the book will help them develop.
