What They’re Saying About

Dreamwalker: Book 1

“I loved this book! I was apprehensive at first, as this genre of fiction isn’t something I’m usually interested in. But then I started reading it and could barely put it down! When I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about the characters and how I needed to get back to them. I love how the Gospel was woven throughout the book. I loved the author’s gift of making the words come to life in my mind as a movie. I could totally see this story as a film! I can’t wait to read the next one, and the next one...”

Sheyna Widener

I love a good mystery and this is a suspenseful page turner! You will definitely find that with DreamWalker! I could picture all the images so clearly and could not put the book down! It is full of action and with each chapter more and more of the story is revealed. This novel is perfect for teens and grownups...and it's great to find a good book with a Christian backbone! This book was so well written and I hope Carrie Cotten does not stop with just this book.

Angela Shimel

This was so far outside my normal genres, I was really uncertain when I started reading it. Carrie's storytelling and characters hooked me pretty quickly, however, and it just got better from there. Like really, really good. The pacing was excellent and the characters really came to life. The entire character arc was 💯. And when I got to the climax and resolution, it was everything. I think the exact words are "emotional and intense." All those reasons are why I've now read it twice and my hands are itching to get a hold of the sequel.

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verse to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
