The limit between consciousness and subconsciousness is very thin. All we have to do is fall asleep to cross over. But a dreamscaper -- well, he doesn't have to do anything. He rules both worlds.
In Scapemaker, Steve V. Cypert introduces us to Matthew Namely, a teenage boy whose father works at his school. Their relationship is terrible. His Dad barely wants him around and keeps a lot of information from him. It takes a bizarre accident, in which his Dad just won't recover, for Matthew to try and solve the puzzle that was his father.
I was overwhelmed with all the information that was given in the first few chapters. The strained relationship, the accident, another tragic event, the move, and then all the characteristics of what dreamscaping was about. A lot to take in. Things got better once Matthew settled and found a group of friends he could count on. I admire his determination to help his father, regardless of everything he kept from him.
Another good point to mention, is that Cypert, didn't limit this writing to science-fiction. There is a lot of romance in this book (love triangle). Matthew's adventure will continue in the sequel.
