From the Back Cover

Joey Harker is a hero.

After mastering the ability to walk between dimensions, Joey helped save the Altiverse from destruction. But the rival powers one of magic, one of science who seek to control all worlds are still out there, and InterWorld's peacekeeping mission is far from finished.

When a stranger named Acacia does the impossible and follows Joey back to BaseTown, things get complicated. No one knows who she is or where she's from or how she knows so much about InterWorld.

Dangerous times lie ahead for Joey and the mission. There's a traitor in the group of Freedom Fighters, and if Joey has any hope of saving InterWorld, the Altiverse, and the mission, he's going to have to rely on his wits and, just possibly, on the mysterious Acacia Jones.

The Silver Dream is a riveting sequel to InterWorld, full of bravery, loyalty, time and space travel, and the future of a young man who is more powerful than he realizes."

Format: Paperback
Despite what Amazon might say, and some of the reviewers below, this book is not written by Neil Gaiman (check the book cover if you do not believe me) . Instead it is written by Michael Reaves and Mallory Reaves.

This book is the second instalment of Giaman's and Reaves' Interworld series. I strongly recommend you read the first book, before reading this. This book is a logical continuation form the premises set in the first book. If you liked the first story, you'll enjoy this. Though I must say that the writing is less fluent than the first book (perhaps this has been Gaiman's magic in the first book), and the story is a bit predictable. The novel is clearly intended for young adults...and I think it is an interesting concept for a tv-series, but that aside. BTW: since I hate plot spoilers, I won't provide any in this short review and stop here before I tell too much of the plot (but if you've read part 1, you might have a guess where this book is going).

Full of imagination and clearly heading somewhere, but this book is setting the scene for bigger things to come.
It should be stressed that this book is not written by Neil Gaiman, despite the top billing the book gives him. Mr Gaiman is co-creator of the story (which is not a bad thing). However, if you are looking for Neil's excellent prose, you won't find it here. Michael Reaves is a good writer, but lacks the mythic touch which Neil Gaiman appears to find so effortless.

At first I didn't enjoy it as much as I did the first part (interworld), but started to really get into the story towards the middle and end and now look forward to future instalments. If you liked the first book then you will most probably enjoy this, but you do need to have read Interworld to really appreciate the story. I recommend you buy both and enjoy another Gaiman classic (and Reaves of course)

I love Neil Gaiman. This is a good sequel, even if about teens. Interworld is a fascinating and well-thought out concept. Gripping action sequences. I will be buying the third book, after countless abandoned Kindle series by less skilled fantasy and Sci fi writers.

Amazingly sharp. Written by a little bookish boy who just dosn't fit in. Gaiman?
Clever story, thought provoking and disturbing.
lots of delicious ambiguities.
fantasy with low key horror.

I found this book a disappointment. I have read many Neil Gaiman books and they are witty, entertaining and thought provoking. However I found this to be none of these things. I felt the characters to be unconvincing and the story never really went somewhere. I have only given the 2 starts as I can't give Neil Gaiman only 1.

To start with, amazon should take Neil Gaiman off the 'author' page as he did not write it. The first in this series, 'interworld' was enjoyable with one or two nice ideas. This, on the other hand, is a bit of a stinker. It isn't terrible, but basically, stuff happened, blah blah, some other stuff happened, all written so banally that I really didn't care about anyone, hero continues to be (yawn) 'chosen', somehow special, with better powers than everyone else etc etc ad nauseum. It ends in an unsatisfying way too, clearly a ploy to get you to buy the next in the series, which I really disaprove of for a child's book, which is what this is. If you've only read a few books then you will probably enjoy this, but for everyone else, there are hundreds of similar books out there that are more rewarding.

I wasn't terribly happy with the original Interworld story. I liked the idea, but wasn't satisfied with how the book worked. I had decided back then to not buy any more books from the series, and only received this one by some freak accident when purchasing The Ocean at the End of the Lane. But when I realised, months later, that it was downloading, I thought about giving it another try. And I had quite a while to lament it afterwards.

This wasn't just more of the same: it was actually worse. Again, there are interesting ideas, but the execution leaves much to be desired, and the whole twists are nowhere near as clever as they think they are. I had to make an actual effort to reach the end, and although Joey's "voice" was stripped of its most annoying tones, it was still rather grating. Why on earth do so many YA writers think their heroes/heroines have to be wisecracking one-dimensional bundles of energy?

But I persevered and reached the ending. It was messy. Not REALLY much happened during the book until the final chapters, and although there was plenty of action, this felt forced and almost unnecessary... it felt almost written to stretch the length of the book. The new characters might as well be flagged up with gigantic arrows spelling out their purpose, they are THAT obvious. Again we are left with a pseudo-resolution but with an underlying cliffhanger, and not really much of a real explanation of what is happening or why, as if the writers couldn't make up their minds or didn't quite know yet, so they're stretching the books to have a chance to figure it out.

I gave the series a second chance because I have loved nearly everything else that Mr Gaiman has written. I have to say, today, that any Interworld future novel will be absent from my library, because I refuse to subject myself to another one.
