It kept me guessing. Right vs wrong. Overall, the start of a great series. I hope the next book gets here soonest.

First of all, I only finish about 1/3 of the books I purchase, so I'm not so easy to please. I not only finished this book, but I burned through it because I cared about the characters and wanted to know what happened. It is always a good sign when I still want to listen to my book after my commute is over.
It is not a perfect book. It does tend to do flashbacks at the moments where you'd rather stay in the present because something is going on. That was annoying at times.
However, I really did like the main character, which is a problem with many novels nowadays. Everybody wants to make the next GoT where everybody is a jerk, and anybody who is actually a good person dies a horrible death. Lyssa's Dream is not that. In addition, every character in the story seems three dimensional,
The children were realistically portrayed, and there is plenty of action. The realism was quite good, with just enough explanation of the technical detail without getting bogged down in geek stuff. The writing was good; The dialog seemed natural and unforced, the pacing was good, and the plot interesting.
In summation, I highly recommend Lyssa's Dream for science fiction fans and even non-science fiction fans, and I look forward to the next book in the series.
