Waiting on Wednesday: Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, it spotlights upcoming releases that we are dying to read.
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. 

Expected publication: October 6th 2015 by Roaring Brook Press

What are you waiting on?



  1. What a beautiful book cover. I love the whole idea involving dreams and a "dreamsrider" in this story. What a unique concept. Anything involving dreams fascinates me, because since I was young, I remember many dreams of mine a night. Awesome WOW pick. I love discovering new books!
