Elizabeth Knox creates a world recognizable as our own but with a geographical twist -- a mysterious land called "the Place." Only "dreamhunters" can go there to capture dreams and bring them back to share with others. Laura and Rose are cousins and children of famous dreamhunters: Laura's father, Tziga, discovered "the Place"; Rose's mother performs her dreams at the famous Rainbow Opera. (Others deliver nightmares for prisoners or relaxing dreams for hospital patients.) When her father disappears, Laura finds herself on a terrifying mission to find him. Edwina Wren skillfully conveys the dreamlike quality of the story with a wistful tone. She also develops fitting character voices -- Laura is sensitive and anxious, Rose is pert and confident, and the golem-like Sandman is a bit scratchy.
