A Fun Series!
Any additional comments?
My family listened to this book while driving on a cross country trip. It (and the sequel also) kept us entertained for many hours. My children's ages are 4, 5, 9, and 11. They all loved the book and so did my husband and I. The characters are believable because they have real problems and act appropriately for their age. Sometimes authors make their characters act too old, but Mikey Brooks doesn't do that. He did a great job of making you relate with the characters.
Anthony Bianco brought the story to life with his narration and different character voices. Some narrators tend to read too slow, but The Dream Keeper moved at an optimal pace.

Any additional comments?
I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed it. I think the reader did a great job, especially with the accents.
Somehow, I had it in my mind that it was middle grade, so it was a little surprising when there was kissing, but I'm all for kissing so I was good with it. The kids were entertaining, and I loved the message of the story. The world was interesting and creative, with the bad guys being really creepy.
I don't like it when authors don't use the perfect tense (using the word had to identify that they're talking about something that happened in the past). I see a lot of it anymore and it can be confusing. It's makes the grammar Nazi in me twitch.
I enjoyed the characters a lot. Gladamyr, the mare who doesn't want to be one, is my hero. Kaelyn's aunt has me confused. I didn't know whether to like her or want to smack her silly when she and Gladamyr's girlfriend started a stereotypical cat fight. Robert Jordan did a lot of that with his female characters in the Wheel of Time series, and it bugged me then too.
Warning--the book has good resolution but then ends with a last-minute cliffhanger.
