and with a great voice, Noffke keeps the pages turning with both intrigue and excitement
Roya Stark has just found out she's a Lucidite. Lucid can mean articulate, comprehensible, cogent, or bright and luminous. Either way the 16 year old understands she is vastly different from her Middling family. Sarah Noffke has created a brave, new world, where people flit in and out of dreams chasing villains that attack when a person is most vulnerable; when they sleep. Threatened with the destruction of her family, Roya must chose whether to trust the beings that are pulling her in a dangerous direction or allow herself to ignore their warnings. Either way, the outcome is dangerous and life threatening. Roya never belonged in her old life, but courageously chooses to forge ahead and find her place among the Lucidites where perhaps she will shine brighter than anyone else. Witty, and with a great voice, Noffke keeps the pages turning with both intrigue and excitement. A fun introduction to the endless horizon of our dreams.
