Joshlyn Weaver has always lived with a big secret. Ordinary kids spend their free time going to the movies, hanging out with friends, and searching on the internet. 
But for her, an evening at home usually means entering people's dreams. For many generations, her family has been part of a very powerful and very secretive society of dream walkers. Tasked with the responsibility of lowering the world's general anxiety — which only leads to war and strife in the waking world — their job has always been to stop nightmares before they go too far.By stopping nightmares while sleeping, they help to stop nightmares in real life.
But when an ancient feud within the dream walker society resurfaces right when a seemingly unconnected series of very strange and very scary events start occurring during her dream walks, Josh finds herself in a race against time. The one true dream walker has never been known. Could she be the one?

Dreamfire by Kit Alloway was a good read. I thought the world building and romance was well written and pretty easy to follow. Alloway did a great job at bringing a unique plot to her readers. Dreamwalkers is a fun idea. Dreamwalkers are people who can enter nightmares and help resolve them for the dreamer. My biggest problem with this story is it is a bit slow to build. The reader is thrown into a world with a ton of characters with so many different names. I have to say that was a bit hard to follow up as you get into the story it may be slow but easier to follow. This was an enjoyable read. I would probably recommend it more for a beach or lazy day read though.
