Six months ago, Ashling Campbell’s life was good. Okay, so the sleep deprivation sucked, but that’s what happens when you’re murdered by bloodthirsty demons on a nightly basis via freaky supernatural nightmares. That’s why she stepped up to her calling as a dreamwalker. But if she’d known that saving her town meant giving up everyone she loved, she’d have let that call go straight to voicemail.
She wants another chance. Just one. And the key to that chance lies with finding the mysterious stranger who disappeared shortly after her life went to hell. Her new mission is to dreamwalk again, or die trying.
The Jumlin wants another chance too. Just one. And the key to that chance lies with finding the weird sophomore who showed up just before he could summon hell on earth. His new mission is to stop the line of dreamwalkers, by killing just one - a girl that seems all too eager to die.
If Ash’s plan is to succeed, she’ll have to outsmart the immortal demon, piece together her thorny family tree, deal with a friend’s untimely return, and pass her driver’s test - all before she turns… SIXTEEN.
Reviews for Sixteen
Sixteen continues approximately six months after Fifteen finished. Ashling is on community service for trying to buy sleeping pills, Tate and Nadette are still missing, and Ashling is still without her mum. She decides that if she can just find Dr Dietz, she will find a way to dreamwalk again, so that she can save her mum from dying. She finds Dr Dietz, plus a whole more than she ever imagined. She does manage to dreamwalk again, but to a different time and place than she wanted. Walker Smith is still a horrible character, he still treats Skylar as not [...]
The weave of teenage drama, time travel, Indian myths, and demons creates a fast-paced adventure and unexpected surprises around every corner.
Ash stopped the horrible future of a demon rule, but now, it's her own past that she can't accept. Determined to stop her mother's death, Ash searches for a way to dreamwalk again. But time is a fickle thing--trying to correct a 'wrong' doesn't necessarily make things turn out for the better. It can make them worse. Much worse.
I read the first book, Fifteen, before diving into Sixteen and don't recommend reading book two as a stand-alone, since the plot [...]
About two years ago I read FIFTEEN by Jen Estes, the first book in the Dreamwalker Diaries. A little reminder:
Fifteen-year-old Ashling Campbell is a dreamwalker. She has the ability to travel fifteen years into the future, but only in her dreams. Her purpose? To stop an evil monster from taking control. By changing her present, she also changes her future, and every night she travels to her thirty-year-old self to see if she has succeeded.
After the events of FIFTEEN, the series now continues with SIXTEEN. If you haven’t read the first book yet, there might be some spoilers up ahead [...]
