Book Review: War for the Waking World

The War for the Waking World by Wayne Thomas Batson
The War for the Waking World (Dreamtreaders, #3) 
by Wayne Thomas Batson (Goodreads Author)

3 out of 5 stars

Archer and his fellow Dreamtreaders are fighting the final battle. With the Rift tearing their world apart, they will need some strange allies to pull things back together. Kara has taken the Nightmare Lord’s throne, and is throwing the world into chaos in her desperate grab for power. Archer will have to think outside the box to find a way to defeat Kara and her armies before the Rift destroys everything they know.

I continue to love Archer’s character! He grows and changes and becomes more mature in this book. He’s no longer reckless and foolish. He takes responsibility for his bad choices, and puts his own needs aside to focus on helping others.
I adore little Kaylie! She is an 8-year-old genius with more mental power than all the others combined, but she is cute as a button and sweet as icecream. She’s so adorable and lovely!

I was confused by some of the plot points concerning the villain characters. (view spoiler)I love me a good redemption story, but it needs to make sense. There needs to be a reason, a big life-changing reason, for the villain to team up with the good guys. And this just felt so unrealistic for the villains to have a sudden change of heart.

I really loved the clever way that the heroes found a way to close up the Rift. It was half sci-fi, and half magic. Very imaginative, and fit in perfectly with the story!

Overall, I loved this trilogy! Great writing, and wonderful characters, plenty of action and fantasy!
