The Keeper of Reverie

Jamie Steidle

Hidden for millennia, a forgotten magical land… and a dangerous power within is waiting to be unleashed.

When 15-year-old Jake Lethe couldn’t sleep, he’d steal his uncle’s dreams.

Jake Lethe, his mother Lisa and his uncle Artemis travel across the country collecting dreams and memories. The Lethe family are Grafters—people of the dream-trade—living remnants of the lost land of Reverie. With Jake at their side, the family travels to festivals selling these memories and dreams to creatures of lore that are unable to enter our work-a-day world.

When Jake’s mother and uncle are kidnapped by a dark force intent on stealing the power of Reverie, Jake is forced to uncover the ancient city, but by doing so he risks unleashing a dangerous power; with Reverie one can control the world of dreams.

Jake, along with his friend Claire, must travel together from the depths of the deepest cave to the tempest of a raging ocean, through deserts and mountains; they scour the Earth to solve the puzzle of an ancient civilization.

A classic young adult fantasy novel about an unlikely hero. A book of adventure, humor, and courage, it spans myth, legend, and lore blending the imaginations of Tolkien, Pullman, and Gaiman. Its style charts the landscape of fantasy laid down by George Macdonald and mapped by C. S. Lewis.

This young adult novel is filled with action, mystery, and humor similar to His Dark Materials, The Graveyard Book, and A Series of Unfortunate Events.
