The book finds Zac living a normal life with his granny. However, Zac has started to have vivid dreams which begin to unsettle him, as they feel too realistic. One day he finds his granny acting strangely and follows her into a full-on adventure. This story will have you spellbound, as you fly through the pages in a zany camper van - fighting skywaymen, a variety of monsters and blood-thirsty vampires that have come straight out of your nightmares.
This book is packed with action - it will leave any reluctant reader wanting much more. The stand-offs between the Knights of Nod and the Dream Pirates have a film-like quality that bring your imagination to the boil. It's full of nasty creatures that want to eat you, suck your blood or indeed just kill you . . . . . !
The one thing I was a little unsure about involved the book cover. Whilst it glows in the dark, which is a great marketing idea to entice the younger reader. I would have liked to have seen a more appealing book cover to entice a wider audience. This, I feel, would attract more readers because this is certainly a book that screams out to be read by everyone.
This is a great debut book by Ross - it's well written and I think it has a great future. Ross should begin to develop a good following, as every reader who picks up this book up and turns the pages, should be eager to see what he writes next. I for one, can't wait.
