Publisher's Summary

Set in 1906, Dreamhunter describes a world very similar to ours, except for a special place, known simply as "The Place", where only a select group of people can go. These people are called Dreamhunters and they harvest dreams that are then transmitted to the general public for the purposes of entertainment, therapy - or terror and political coercion. Fifteen-year-old cousins Laura Hame and Rose Tiebold both come from famous dreamhunting families, but only Laura proves to be blessed with the gift. Once inside The Place, she finds out what happened to her missing dreamhunter father and discovers that the government has been using dreams to control an ever-growing population of convicts and political dissenters.

Audible Editor Reviews

Edwina Wren delivers a captivating performance of Elizabeth Knox’s novel Dreamhunter. In 1906, Dreamhunters gather in a special location called The Place, where they harvest dreams and deliver them, often as entertainment or therapy. At times they use their gift to transmit dreams to inflict terror or gain a political advantage. Fifteen-year-old Laura Hame is a Dreamhunter from a well-known family. As she spends more time in The Place, she uncovers an unsavory government conspiracy, and learns what happened to her missing father.
