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″
My ReviewHaving 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!

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.
