Book Blitz Review - "Dream Warriors"

I am so happy to be joining in with a Book Review Blitz for the new Young Adult book by D. Robert Pease (author of the Noah Zarc series) “Dream Warriors: Joey Cola, Book 1″

Dream Warriors by D. Robert Pease

 My Review

Having read the blurb I was really looking forward to getting my teeth into this book. And it didn't disappoint. A thrilling story of adventure and intrigue with more than its fair share of twists and turns. Joey Cola is a new breed of hero. I couldn't help but notice the parallels with the story of Joseph and his coat of many colours - second youngest of twelve brothers, bullied because he was given preferential treatment by his father, thrown down a manhole and transported to Egypt where he experienced remarkably lifelike dreams.

Fabulous book, believable characters and gripping plot. I loved it!

About the Book

Title: Dream Warriors (Joey Cola, Book 1)
Author: D. Robert Pease 
Publication Date: July 7, 2014
Publisher: Evolved Publishing LLC 
Pages: 232 
Recommended Ages: 12+

Summary:  Joseph Colafranceschi is a fifteen-year-old, self-described geek, living in the Bronx. The second youngest of twelve sons of the former U.S. ambassador to Italy, Joey discovers that a small Egyptian statuette, given to him by his father, endows him with power to control his dreams.
After his brothers throw him down a manhole, Joey is drawn into a hidden society of warriors who have been battling a reincarnated Egyptian Pharaoh for over 3,000 years. In the dream world, everyone is not what they appear to be, and it’s impossible to tell who to trust. As Joey slips deeper into a world of gladiator battles and clandestine missions within other people’s dreams, he catches the eye of a beautiful Egyptian princess.
The only thing that keeps him grounded in reality is his best friend Alex, but even she may not be who he thought she was.

About the Author: D. Robert Pease

D. Robert Pease
D. Robert Pease has been interested in creating worlds since childhood. From building in the sandbox behind his house, to drawing fantastical worlds with paper and pencil, there has hardly been a time he hasn’t been off on some adventure in his mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. Also, since the moment he could read, books have consumed vast swaths of his life. From The Mouse and the Motorcycle, to The Lord of the Rings, worlds just beyond reality have called to him like Homer’s Sirens. It’s not surprising then he chose to write stories of his own. Each filled with worlds just beyond reach, but close enough we can all catch a glimpse of ourselves in the characters he creates.
D. Robert lives in the grey-skied world of Northeast Ohio with his wife, two kids (a boy and a girl) and two pets (a dog and a cat) and a pond full of goldfish. When not writing he loves to travel the U.S. via RV with his trusty Jeep in tow, or ride the hills of Ohio on his bike..
