The Dream Protocol By Adara Flynn Quick

The dream protocol book review



In fiery young Deirdre Callaghan’s home of Skellig City, no one has dreamt their own dream in over a thousand years. Dreams are produced by the Dream Makers and sold by the Ministry, the tyrannical rulers of the city. In Skellig City, years of life are awarded equally and the ruined are cast away beneath the city on their 35th birthday.

Unbeknownst to the Ministry, Deirdre’s handsome friend Flynn Brennan is afflicted with a terrible disease – a disease that accelerates the aging process. Knowing his fate if the Ministry should ever discover his illness, Flynn has lived his whole life hiding from their watchful eyes. When Flynn’s secret is finally discovered, Deirdre is determined to free him from the Ministry’s grasp. But to save him, she will have to reveal herself to a shadowy enemy…one that none of them even knew existed.



I’m not normally a fan of reviewing books that are part of a series as I always feel obliged to review the whole series so that you, my dear reader, don’t miss out, but I made an exception for this book because I LOVED the cover art. I’m a fickle reader and when faced with a row of books with little time to study each one I will always pick the cover I like best….which has varying degrees of success!

But, my book shallowness came through for me this time and I couldn’t have been happier with The Dream Protocol. I found the story engaging and fast paced and a tale that kept you guessing….and leaves you guessing!!

I loved the theme, it reminds me a little of a Hunger Games style of life with a little bit of social inequality thrown in for good measure. And after the teaser at the end of Book 1 I cannot wait to read book 2!!

The idea of the Ministry is a unique one and the depiction of people buying and living out their fantasies in their dreams could be a glimpse into our own future and the author depicts this life with creativity and flare that captivates the reader.

This book is definitely worth a read and kept me up until the wee hours!
