Produktbeschreibungen

Kurzbeschreibung

Decades ago, the CIA developed the technology to enter our dreams and extract information. It was just a matter of time before they took things a little too far...

“A spooky, imaginative novel that takes a universally-fascinating concept and turns it into a delirious adventure.”
~~ Isabela Morales, The Scattering
http://thescattering.wordpress.com/2010/07/29/verdict-dream-war-by-stephen-prosapio/

“Dream War is often gripping on a level that is visceral.”
~~ Oxification
http://www.oxyfication.net/headline/dream-war-stephen-prosapio/

“Comparisons to Michael Crichton are spot on.”
~~ Geoffrey Edwards, author of Fire Bell in the Night

“Fun, fast paced and original escapism!”
Dana Fredsti, author of Murder for Hire: The Peruvian Pigeon

“Strong characters, vivid descriptions, and the highest possible stakes. It's original in both plot and treatment.”
~~ Dale Cozort, author of Exchange


DREAM WAR
1980. Hector Lopez joins a CIA enterprise capable of entering dreams and extracting information. Lopez saves hundreds of hostages’ lives by dream-linking to terrorists and foiling their plans. When the Red Brigades, an Italian terrorist group, kidnaps a US General, Lopez and his team execute every technique available for extracting information—including one that links our world to a dimension never meant to be discovered.

Present Day. The Sogno di Guerra—a Red Brigades sect—plans the slaughter of millions. And they’ve the help of Luzveyn Dred, the entity ruling the dimension the CIA inadvertently opened a portal to—the Spatium Quartus.

Aided by an aging expatriate, a recovering alcoholic, and a mysterious girl, Lopez must overcome memories of past failures and defeat evil—in this world as well as in a dimension of nightmares.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ab in die vierte Dimension ! 29. Februar 2012
Von CF TOP 1000 REZENSENT VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
In den 80er Jahren des letzten Jahrhundert wird ein Nachrichtendienst in den USA gegründet (OIA), der mit Hilfe von neuester Technik in die Träume Anderer eindringen kann. So ist es den Mitgliedern möglich, bei italienischen Terroristen den Verbleib eines US-Generals zu ermitteln und ihn zu befreien. Ein grandioser Erfolg. Schnell stellt sich allerdings heraus, dass es da neben den Träumen noch etwas anderes gibt. Keine Traumwelt, sondern eine vierte Dimension. Die Einheit wird durch Todesfälle und andere Vorkommnisse erschüttert und letztlich aufgelöst.

Heute stellt der Mächtige der vierten Dimension, Luzveyn Dred, der Erde nach. Er erscheint in den Alpträumen von Menschen, um sie auf seine Seite zu ziehen. Drew, der auch heimgesucht worden ist, entscheidet sich über diese Vorfälle und ein kleines silbernes Medaillon, das er plötzlich sein Eigen nennt, mit seinem Nachbarn Hector zu reden. Hector war - wen wundert es - einst Teil der OIA...

Die Geschichte, so phantastisch sie auch klingt, wird durch Prosapio sehr realitätsnah geschildert. Nie kommt man auf die Idee, sie sei Science Fiction... nein, das muss man sich jedesmal wieder klarmachen (oder ist es doch kein SiFi mehr, wer weiß das schon?). Er stellt alle Akteure, auch wenn sie nur ein kurzes Interezzo haben, immer sehr schön plastisch dar und gibt ihnen eine eigene Identität mit auf den Weg. Dadurch gelingt es ihm neben der eigentlichen Handlung eine gewisse menschliche Tiefe in das Buch zu bringen.

Das Buch ergeht sich auch nicht in immer wieder den gleichen Handlungen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unique and Creative! 28. Juli 2010
Von TMoney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
With all the copycat novels and "follow the leader", it's rare to find unique perspectives and stories in fantasy/science fiction these days. The world created in Dream War looks a lot like our own, it even shares some of our history, but it's just a bit different in ways that are wildly creative and entertaining. This book pulls you in and doesn't let go until the last page. And even then you don't want to leave the characters that you've come to know and care about.

Dream War begins back in 1980 just after a new form of terrorism (state sponsored terrorism) had reared its ugly head with the takeover of the American Embassy in Iran. The CIA pulls US Marine Lt. Hector Lopez from a mission to rescue the hostages (Operation Credible Sport - an historical military operation which was aborted) and puts him to work at the Oneirology Institute of America (the OIA to train him to dream link for the purposes of extracting information from the minds of terrorists. The OIA is fictional, but Prosapio uses historical hijackings in 1981 to dramatize the plot.

Later, he weaves another historical event, the kidnapping of US Army General Dozier by the Italian Red Brigades, into the story. And these references aren't gratuitous, they seamlessly blend with fiction (much the way Michael Crichton did) to provide realism to the story. As the story moves into the modern day plot by a (I hope) fictional Italian terrorist group, the Sogno di Guerra (Dreams of War) an offshoot of the Red Brigades, we see the connection of the fictional to the real world, but by then this intricate story has enthralled us in its language and the characters.

I won't give away the surprises in the book, but suffice it to say you'll be kept on the edge of your seat. I read early excerpts of this novel when it was in an online contest in 2007 and am happy to say that it was worth the wait!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Lackluster, but readable 17. September 2011
Von Kevin Loveridge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book ended up being totally different than what I expected it to be, and I was let down. The premise was fairly interesting, but the plot unfolded like the author was making it up on the spot. The characters were underdeveloped and I found myself not caring about what happened to any of them. There were moments in the book where I felt the author intended a scene to be powerful, but I felt them to be trite and cheesy. Aside from the subject matter, any comparison to King or Crichton is inaccurate. Crichton would have explained how the technology worked and make it believable, and King would string out the horror and make the antagonist truly blood curdling. All that being said, I didn't hate this book, and I think it would be good for a high schooler or a mass consumer of pop fiction.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Nice Read 2. Januar 2013
Von Jonathon K - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
For me, this book falls into the category of a mild amusement. It was worth the purchase price and provided a diversion, but it didn't grab me by the throat and pull me in to the storyline.

The plot itself was interesting, not something that has been done over and over in other novels. One of the better things that the author accomplished was seamlessly pulling in history to support his plot. I think this was a high point of the novel.

Proofreading was good with only one typo noted.

On the other hand, characterization was so-so. I got a little tired of the sarcastic bravado several of the characters exhibited, especially at times when the sarcastic attempts at humor were extremely out-of-place.

For someone who obviously knows the Oceanside, California area, I was surprised at how poorly the Marines were represented from a realism standpoint, from too-young lieutenant colonels to how Marines were being involuntarily discharged in order to be assigned to the CIA. I also noted simple mistakes in geography and times throughout the book (shifting the POV from Italy to California didn't seem to take into account the time difference.)

I would recommend this book based on the plot alone. It may not be at the top of my reading list, but it was still a good effort and worth the read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad at all... 5. Juli 2011
Von Travis Stein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
With this being my 2nd Kindle book and for $2.99, I wasn't sure how good or bad Dream War was going to be. As it turns out, I was pleasantly surprised. Dream War starts out in the 1980's where the CIA is rumored to be developing experimental technology capable of entering people's dreams and extracting information from them. Enter Lt. Hector Lopez, a marine soon to be turned into the CIA's newest recruit to lead their dream link technology. At first, the intentions of the dream link branch of the CIA, known as the Oneirology Institute of America are to help defend and protect the innocent via dream linking and for a while it goes quite well. Lt. Lopez saves the lives of hundreds of hostages by dream linking into the minds of terrorists and foiling their plans. However, things begin to go awry when a U.S. general is kidnapped by an Italian terrorist group known as the Red Brigades. During one of these dream-link operations into the minds of one of the higher-ups of the Red Brigades, a mysterious portal opens and a entity known as Luzveyn Dred appears and offers Lopez the chance to join him with the promises of rich rewards. Lopez declines and the future of mankind slowly spirals down from there. Unintentionally, Lopez and his team have inadvertently opened up a portal to a dimension with horrific consequences that no one could have foreseen. After the first few years of the missions, Luzveyn Dred begins to appear more and more in the dreams of Lopez and his fellow agents. As team members start dropping like flies after dream-linking missions, Lopez begins to sense something is wrong but what?

Fast forward to the present day, as a off-shoot of the Red Brigades known as Sogno di Guerra plans to murder millions. However, the Sogno di Guerra aren't your regular terrorist group bent on slaughtering innocents. They claim to be the on-earth army of the entity/ruler (Luzveyn Dred) of the Spatium Quartus - a dimension that the CIA/OIA opened up a portal to over two decades ago via dream-linking.

Along with a retired Hector Lopez, a recovering alcoholic and his mysterious step daughter... Lopez must now overcome his past failures and demons and battle evil not only in the real world, but against Luzveyn Dred in the Spatium Quartus before it's too late for humanity.

Overall, this book was a nice surprise and talk about a bargain! It reminded me of a lot of different ideas from past movies and the Bible. You have your elements of The Matrix, Inception, and the biblical wars between heaven and hell all weaved into what turns out to be a pretty good novel. With the battles between Luzveyn Dred and Lopez and his team, they bear a very obvious resemblance to those of heaven and hell in the bible. Even if you're a self-proclaimed atheist, the religious aspect of Dream War doesn't detract from the story. I'll say I definitely enjoyed this book from Stephen Prosapio. As an author, it seems like he's on the right path and I look forward to reading some of his future stuff. As for the ending, it's not a cliffhanger but a definite tease that the battle with Luzveyn Dred just might not be over yet. If the next possible book is anything like Dream War, I certainly will be picking up a copy.

-Travis S.

P.S. On a side note, what is the deal with the garbage reviews for this book? I'm talking not only about the bad reviews, but also the good ones. When did we as a society become so lazy and start to write 2-5 sentences while not even reviewing the book? Yes, we know you enjoyed and Prosapio pleasantly surprised you... but the point is to review the book, lol.

Von Gayle Bedwell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Stephen Prosapio has a unique writing skill that draws the reader in quickly. A writing style that compares to Stephen King and Dean Koontz..
A page turner that will have you question whether or not you will want to sleep alone.
