Booklist - 03/01/2023 Siblings Rachel and Robert live in Krasnia, a country ruled by the tyrant Charles Malstain. One fateful night, their father sneaks them into the library where he works to steal The Book of Stolen Dreams, a book long rumored to be capable of magic, before it is destroyed the next day. Just as they are about to escape unseen, they are ambushed by soldiers who apprehend their father. With this mysterious book now in their possession, the siblings are the only thing stopping Malstain from getting the book and gaining the power to control Krasnia forever. Rachel and Robert find themselves in a race against time to reveal the secrets of the book, stop Malstain, and save their father. Farr’s action-packed adventure will keep you on your toes as readers get both Rachel’s and Robert’s points of view with whimsical narration. While the mention of death and violence creates a dark atmosphere throughout the book, it is ultimately a hopeful tale of bravery and resilience. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
