Waiting on Wednesday: Dreamstrider

12:00 AM Serena 0 Comments

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers share upcoming releases they're eagerly anticipating. 

This week's pick is...
Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith
Expected Publication Date: October 6th, 2015
Goodreads / Preorder: Amazon - Barnes and Noble - The Book Depository

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. 

I don't know if I'm more attracted to the premise or the cover because both are definitely "OMG, I want!" worthy. I haven't read a Lindsay Smith novel yet, but I've heard great things about her Sekret series so I have high hopes for Dreamstrider

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Let me know!
