Neither did 11-year-old twins, Josh and Jenna. That is, until one night when something moved in the corner of Jenna's bedroom. That event started a chain reaction that catapulted the twins across a threshold into a mystical realm, "the place of dreams where nothing is quite the way it seems, where that which is, perhaps is not and what is not just might be." Josh and Jenna are shocked to learn that they are the key to fulfilling an ancient prophecy: Now the Dreamstone has been lost Waiting who knows where? Like a ball between two players tossed ’Tis neither here nor there. Two children from the Outer World Together shall come alone. They must be twins, a boy and girl To find the lost Dreamstone. If the prophecy is not fulfilled then everyone, everywhere, will suffer horrible nightmares every sleeping moment of their lives for as long as they live. Tasked with finding the Dreamstone in a realm populated by Dreamons and Drangels and Skrids––not to mention those annoying things called Weedles––the twins are met with dangers and strangers beyond their wildest dreams. Josh, the adventurous one, will find this adventure to be almost more than he can handle. And Jenna will find her practical nature challenged by the sheer weirdness of nearly everything at nearly every turn. Failure to succeed in their quest is not an option––at least not if they ever want to return to their home and to the comfortable lives they once knew. D'rath Kahn, the Dark Lord of Nightmares has declared it so. The Lost Dreamstone, complete with colorful illustrations by the author, is geared toward Middle Grade readers (as well as adults) with a thirst for action and adventure and a touch of weirdness. There is much to be discovered in the place of dreams. Like Shamara the Sorceress told the twins, "Future fortune is often lost because a threshold is left uncrossed." The door is open. Won't you come on in?...

the lost dreamstone Reviews
A fun read for children in the lower age ranges of middle-grade. The scary-silly creatures and imaginative parallel dream and nightmare worlds in The Lost Dreamstone make this an entertaining read for young middle grade readers. Adults who enjoy losing themselves in well-told, complex middle grade and young adult fantasy worlds might find it wanting. It’s most solidly a children’s book.Read the rest of this review at UndergroundBookReviews.org
A lively & fun adventureSince my inner child & I are *thisclose*, I was excited to give The Lost Dreamstone a read. It’s a book aimed at middle grade readers, but the story has universal themes that will resonate with you at any age - the bonds of family and friendship, of acceptance, of personal courage in the face of overwhelming odds, and believing in oneself. It’s a fantasy adventure tale that comes to life both from the wonderful storytelling skills of the author as well as the absolutely stunning illustrations dotted throughout the book. It’s a very special book. The characters are colorful and memorable, the setting rich and interesting, and the plot very inventive. I highly recommend you sharing it with any middle grade readers in your life, or giving it a read yourself, if like me, you love getting lost in an entertaining fantasy adventure world. I loved it.
The Sandman... The In-Between... The Palace of Dreams ...but most of all, the Shadow. A story for children with several intriguing glimpses into the darkness they are more familiar with than adults want to admit.
