    Kiva is such an amazing character.Her journey was mesmerizing as well as her dreams were.This book left me wanting for and even though it is for middle aged kids and I am not it didn t affect me at all

    Dystopic settings continue to be popular for teen and younger readers I m not usually a fan of grim, hopeless worlds, but these two books gave me a modicum of insight into why they appeal In a society in which the normal pattern of childhood and adolescent apprenticeship years has become distorted for whatever reason, young characters acquire agency autonomy, responsibility, freedom to make choices and changes they might not otherwise have.Raising Sleeping Stones The Orora Crona Chronicles, Book [...]

  6. Danielle

    So this book was a harder read for me I love books that grab you from the get go and keep you going until the last page This was took me a while to get into I don t think it was any one s fault, it was just not something I could get into There were times when I had to go back and re read something because I was confused I know that fantasy novels are usually set in worlds far different from the one we live in, and I know this book is no exception I think for me though, this took it beyond that f [...]

    I have to admit I am an adult and even though this book is meant to be read by younger readers, I got pulled in and thoroughly enjoyed it In the beginning one is introduced to the complex society and its structured ways, in which two sisters, Kiva and DeeDee need to find their way The boundaries and strict rules threaten to pull them into a life of servitude but as kids they still have so much unexplored potential I love how vivid and colorful the writing is that makes the many facets of this ne [...]

    Read my full review at blackwords whitepagesteenya.blThis book started out really slow for me and had me asking a lot of questions As I progressed with the story, the it picked up, yet it still had me guessing about my undying questions The ending also left quite a cliffhanger and it was disappointing for me where the author left off Of course, I am not big on cliffhangers It was a great dystopian and a great debut but it just had some things missing for me I loved the characters and left as if [...]

  11. Misty

    This is a book that is a great read for young teens who enjoy fantasy I can say with 100% certainty that as a teen I would have loved this book The whole idea of gaining power in one s dreams so as to beat the monsters is so cool I really would have liked the fact that the main characters were not adults The story line is riveting and keeps the reader on his or her toes as it is hard to predict what is going to happen next Disclosure I was sent this product for free for test and review purposes [...]

  12. Tom Griffin

    Great adventure tale that is both a coming of age story and testimony to the power of dreams The protagonist, Kiva, is a wonderful heroine, a misfit who finds her strengths and self thanks to her mentors, Hilde and Marcel, who teach her, than anything, to trust her instincts, and to attend to her dreaming which is a dangerous activity in the society they inhabit and must escape Younger sister DeeDee is instrumental as well, not to mention as skillful as Kiva in her own way Full of fabulous sett [...]

  13. Stephanie Reich

    Raising Sleeping Stones is a beautiful visual musical tale about confidence and creative thinking We all dream of courage to empower us This wildly imaginative and beautiful book brings us a tale that transports the reader and listener into a distant magical world where dreams are passwords to freedom What is remarkable about Raising Sleeping Stones is that it appeals to young readers AND older generations on a variety of levels This is no ordinary book it is truly a unique modern reader experie [...]

  14. Sheri

    I m older than the intended reader, but I still loved everything about this book Sympathetic main characters and a truly imaginative approach to their journey I loved the magical realism of it all, and the key part dreaming plays in moving the story and our heroes along Added to the experience was the cool way I could click and get music to accompany and enhance key sequences Definitely recommend

  15. Liddy Manson

    This story would be fantastic if it were just a plain old book inspiring and courageous protagonist, well paced plot of adventure and discovery, strong role models for girls and boys alike, and evocative, descriptive writing But when you add in the fun and discovery of all the tips and insights it offers about dreaming, it becomes so much than a good read Everyone should get this for their kids.

  16. Wayne Ysaguirre
