My Review:


When I first saw the sign up for the blog tour of ‘Dreamscape: Saving Alex’ I was a little hesitant. I love the cover but when I read this book would be about a girl who is sucked into a video game, I didn’t really know if this book would something for me. But I love taking changes so I signed up, and after I received the email that I would be a part of the tour, I soon started reading.

In ‘Dreamscape: Saving Alex’ we meet Alex. Alex just heard the worst news of her life (she is still young so don’t judge), her mom told her they are moving tomorrow! Not weeks from now, but tomorrow! Alex is devastated, so when her best friend visits her that evening she is in desperate need of some advice. Between the girl talk they are cleaning out Alex’s room when they come across an old videogame they played many times growing up: Dreamscape.
But when her mother is preparing the last thing for the move, Alex plays Dreamscape one more time, only this time Alex finds herself being pulled into another world. The world of Dreamscape and Alex life is about to change forever.

The thing that immediately became clear after I started reading this book, is that Kirstin Pulioff has an great writing style. Her writing is easy to read, and makes you want to keep reading. She was able to create this world where I just couldn’t get enough of and although I had my doubts I really enjoyed this book.
The characters are well developed, and although I felt like some parts of the story where a little rushed I can’t think of a thing I would change about this book.

The character I loved the most in this book was definitely Arrow. I loved how he was this leader but could also be very sweet. I’m just a terrible romantic and I couldn’t read enough about Arrow and Alex.
Although Alex was the main character, I didn’t like her character as much as I did the rest. I can’t really tell you why I didn’t like Alex so much.. but I just didn’t feel a connection with her from the very beginning on.

Overall this book was a really fun read, it was well developed, had some great characters and above all it’s a very unique story. I would definitely recommend this book if you’re a fan of fantasy and games.
