The Dreamer Chronicles Book II: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Adventure Series across Parallel Universes - loved by kids aged 9+ and adults alike!

Get Moon Zero, Book III in The Dreamer Chronicles! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OC90956

"The Dream Killer brings Sarina back in an action-packed sequel to Sarina's Nightmare. Sarina and her friend, Nathan, must once again join forces to defeat their arch enemies, Valkrog and Makthryg in a parallel world but this time the threat extends beyond that world to their own, where a puzzling loss of creative intelligence is threatening all the great minds of the world, including themselves! I loved this second installment of the Dreamer Chronicles and would thoroughly recommend it to children and adults alike. Robert Scanlon weaves a thrilling story, keeping the reader engrossed as the plot climbs from one climactic crisis to the next. Science, art and magic are woven so skilfully together as to be very believable and language is used wonderfully well. Twists and turns in the plot keep the reader guessing until the end and leaves the reader wanting more." - Fran B

Sarina is back! And the unlikely 12-year old savior of a parallel world is plagued by anxiety.

She cannot afford to miss what might be her only opportunity to fulfill her dream, and win a place at a prestigious art school in Paris. But when she experiences dizzy spells and starts blacking out, she becomes convinced she has inherited the same mental illness that confined her two great-aunts to an institution for most of their lives.

Her good friend, Nathan, is working with his new mentor, Professor Harrison, at the mind-power lab, when the Professor reveals his shocking discovery. A series of disastrous events exposes the entire world to a terrible fate—one that Nathan believes only Sarina can help avert.

But Sarina has the finals of the National Young Artists Breakthrough Competition on her mind. If Sarina does decide to help, will she be able to retain her sanity, save the world—and still make the competition by Saturday?

The Dream Killer is a thrilling science fiction fantasy adventure suitable for kids and adults, filled with twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end.

About the Author

Born in Australia, Robert was whisked back to England where he spent his childhood. After many years complaining about the weather, he did the only sensible thing, and moved back to Australia. Queensland actually. Where he enjoys walks along the beach with his wonderful family.

(Pssst. He still complains about the weather if it gets too cold!)

More About the Author

Born in Australia, Robert was whisked back to England where he spent his childhood. After many years complaining about the weather, he did the only sensible thing, and moved back to Australia. Queensland actually. Where he enjoys walks along the beach with his wonderful family.

(Pssst. He still complains about the weather if it gets too cold!)

He's studied chemistry; worked in the music industry; sold handbags; taught yoga; raced motorcycles; and trained thousands of people in Presentations Skills, Train-the-Trainer, Negotiation Skills ... and more.

Mostly though he loves to read.

And read and read. His father was a science-fiction fan, so Robert grew up on a voracious diet of all the top-notch sci-fi writers (there's a list below!), eventually discovering he had read the entire science-fiction section of his local library. But nowadays he writes books and runs websites. Which is fun, and nothing like work at all.

A Reader asks: "What do you like to read?"

My dad loved Sci-Fi, so that was a big influence. I loved John Wyndham, Philip K Dick, Robert Heinlein and I have a soft spot for Isaac Asimov (who had great non-fiction books about space that I loved). So I still love Sci-Fi, but also like Fantasy; Thrillers and some Action. I also enjoy Young Adult books hugely. I mean, who doesn't like Harry Potter? (If you don't, I feel for you, I really do haha!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and fun adventure! 23 Jan 2014

Another brilliant read! The Dream Killer picks up from not long after Sarina's Nightmare ended, only this time Nathan is attempting to emulate his great great grandfather's success in a new project studying mind-power with Professor Harrison. Sarina goes away on an isolated retreat to draw and paint, but when she asked to help, all her plans are disrupted and the story is a real page-turner as we follow a battle to save us all from diminishing intelligence, fearful sorcerers and science experiments gone wrong. Lots of fun and excitement, and another one for my cousin! Cool ending too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strongly recomended for young science readers. 17 Jan 2014

I was keenly anticipating the sequel to Sarina's Nightmare. In The Dream Killer, we find our heroes - Sarina and Nathan - caught up in a mystery that threatens to affect the intelligence and creativity of everyone on planet earth.

Once again, Sarina is forced to put her art ambitions on hold as we follow her in an adventure that keeps accelerating her further and further into peril.

I loved this follow-on from the first episode of the Dreamer Chronicles. The characters are every bit as believable as before and are forced to confront their own fears in what becomes a gripping sci-fi thriller. Kids will love it, bring on Dreamer Chronicles Part III.

Sarina's back and we thoroughly enjoyed following her adventures again. We normally read these books before bed and my niece is getting ready a little faster to give us time to get an extra chapter in! She loves these books for the action & suspense. I have to say one of my favorite parts was the Fact or Fiction Author's Notes at the end. Scanlon explains real scientific references used throughout the book and gives links for further information. These books are fantastic for getting young readers excited about real science. Careful you may find yourself accidentally watching Contact Juggling videos on YouTube for hours!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream Killer is awesome 22 Jan 2014
By Dzintra Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The second installment of The Dreamer Chronicles is as good as the first. Robert Scanlon has done it again. sarina the main female character is back with her amazing adventures. This series is a series that can span generations, I have enjoyed these books as much as my teenagers have. I also love the educational aspect of Roberts books, Getting people excited about science. I find Robert Scanlons character development thorough and believable, and his story telling kept my attention till the end. I hope this is not the end of this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sarina's adventures continue ... leaving this reader eagerly anticipating the next episode 18 Jan 2014
By Kay - Published on Amazon.com

I am glad there will be more to this story in the (hopefully not too distant) future ... The second installment of The Dreamer Chronicles delivered everything I had looked forward to since reading the first book, and more ... Robert Scanlon's writing is full of delightful surprises - his books have something for readers of all ages. I loved the inclusion of the end notes and the fact that through artful storytelling Robert is inspiring young readers to learn, grow, imagine, create ... These books deserve a wide and large audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars An imaginative and thrilling read. 18 Jan 2014
By Shelley Waugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the first book in the Dreamer Chronicles because it was so well constructed, but I appreciate the second book even more. Not only is the story challenging, but it is beautifully written, which is a rare gift not often given to our young children and teenagers these days.
The story is imaginative and takes the reader to different worlds and ends extremely well with a note of mystery, which is obviously a prelude for what I know will be an excellent third book.
Highly recommended.
