About the Book

Laura and her sister, Rose, are the daughters of Dreamhunters. In the midst of a fascinating landscape, Laura's dreamy childhood is ending and a nightmare beginning. This rich novel, filled with beauty, danger, politics, and intrigue, comes to a powerful crescendo, leaving readers clamoring for Book Two.

Book Synopsis

The dreamhunting began as a beautiful thing, when Tziga Hame discovered that he could enter the Place and share the dreams he found there with other people. But Tziga Hame has disappeared and Laura, his daughter, knows that the art of projecting dreams has turned sour.

On St. Lazarus's Eve, when elite citizens gather at the Rainbow Opera to experience the sweet dream of Homecoming, Laura, determined to show them the truth, plunges them into the nightmare used to control the convict workers. The event marks the first blow in the battle for control of the Place, the source of dreams. Then, when Laura's cousin, Rose, uncovers evidence that the government has been building a secret rail line deep into the Place, Laura follows it to find out what lies at its end. As she struggles to counter the government's sinister plans, a deeper mystery surfaces, a puzzle only Laura can unravel, a puzzle having to do with the very nature of the Place. What is the Place, after all? And what does it want from her?

Inventive and richly imagined, Elizabeth Knox's Dreamquake, dramatic conclusion to the Dreamhunter Duet, will satisfy readers - whether or not they've read Book One.

"It is like nothing else I've ever read." -- Stephenie Meyer, The Twilight Saga

Review Quotes

"It is like nothing else I've ever read. The characters are so real, you'll feel like you know exactly what they look like and how their voices sound and what they would say or do in any given situation. More than that, you'll want to hang out with them. Then the world is so amazing and unique. You will want to go there. You will want to walk into 'the Place.' And you will want to sleep in a dream opera." --Stephenie Meyer, The Twilight Saga

"Will be considered among youth fantasy's most significant recent works. Knox's haunting, invigorating storytelling will leave readers eager to return to its puzzles--and to reap its rewards." --Booklist, Starred Review

"Unexpected plot turns and a rewarding and engaging read." --The Chicago Tribune

"Thoroughly impressive--for its sure, literary prose, nuanced characters, and fully realized Edwardian setting, but even more so for its original, surprising imagery and plot. An involving--and challenging--read, Knox's fantasy is outstanding in its ability to make us think both poetically and analytically about human nature." --The Horn Book

"Legendary allusions add depth and light." --Kirkus Reviews

"Compelling." --Voice of Youth Advocates

"Richly layered and thoroughly enthralling, Knox's literary duet is a unique blend of fantasy and history that stands out as a stunning achievement in recent young adult literature." --School Library Journal

"It's a story of hope and love. It's a fantasy yet is very realistic. This is one I will read over and over again." --A YALSA YA Galley Teen Reader
