Acclaim for Dreamlander

BRAG Medallion winner and NIEA finalist!

“…its gut-rending emotions remind me of the Shakespeare tragedies I read in college. Its war scenes remind me of Lord of the Rings, complete with impossible odds and life-changing decisions. And its jewels of wisdom remind me of the works of C. S. Lewis.”—William Polm

“From hydraulic pistols to steam-driven cable cars, this felt like a fresh and creative world—one running parallel to our own.”—Adam Collings

“K.M. Weiland writes without holding back. She pours an onslaught of visual and emotional power into each scene with a style that slams you between the eyes, knocking you into worlds as dangerous as they are beautiful.”—Naomi D. Musch

About the Book

What if it were possible to live two very different lives in two separate worlds?

What if the dreams you awaken from are the fading memories of that second life?

What if one day you woke up in the wrong world?

Only one person in a generation may cross the barrier of dreams to reach the other world—a world of war-scarred countries and fallen faiths. When a Chicago-born journalist finds himself on the far side of his dreams, he must hurl himself into battle to save a princess from her own people, two worlds from annihilation, and himself from a dream come way too true.

More Praise for Dreamlander

“If you enjoy gritty fantasy with a liberal dose of swordplay and can tolerate a bit of graphic violence, Dreamlander by K. M. Weiland is the novel for you.”—Janalyn Voigt

“I love that [Weiland] writes for both men and women in her stories. Themes involving finding and accepting one's destiny are universal.”—C. Estrella

“The fish-out-of-water aspect of Chris crossing into a new world has been done many times, but [Weiland] keeps it fresh and intriguing throughout the story.”—Jason Joyner

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beatifully Written Epic with Dangerous Appeal 24. November 2012
Von Naomi D. Musch - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
K.M. Weiland writes without holding back. She pours an onslaught of visual and emotional power into each scene with a style that slams you between the eyes, knocking you into worlds as dangerous as they are beautiful.

I entered Lael, the world of the Dreamlander, with my eyes popping and my imagination spinning out of my head much like happened to Chris Redston, the Gifted and hero of the tale. The land, its colors, creatures, and races of folk overwhelmed me at first as I stepped out of the world I knew into a separate place where dreams are more than we imagined them to be. But as I slowly adapted to my surroundings, like Chris,the people of Lael pulled me into their lives until I was walking through the story with them, fearing, longing, and heart pounding for them.

I read with trepidation, because people were sure to die in this story. I've read each of Ms.Weiland's novels, and I have come to expect a certain aspect of the bittersweet while never knowing quite how things could possibly work out. In Dreamlander, there was much evil to conquer, and it wouldn't be put at bay without an epic battle to end all battles -- a battle to possibly end the worlds.

I love the way the story moves between this world and the world of Lael. Ms. Weiland weaves two tales of adventure into one, and the impact of both worlds on Chris Redston felt real as I read.

Chris Redston learned something in the course of the story. He said, "Life has to be more than a series of random coincidences. What's happened to me here--to us... There has to be a bigger plan." That was a great theme. Always is.

If you like epic fantasy, don't miss Dreamlander.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Well done, but not spectacular 30. Juli 2013
Von Juliet Lauser - Veröffentlicht auf
The Good: It was written with skill and with a consciousness of many of the faults that fiction can easily fall into. Some of the characters were adorable (ahem, maybe one little fellow in particular :D). It was quite clean. There were good plot shifts and twists, and the theme was good. The story ended on a note that left you imagining the future, and kept from being a sad ending, though it could easily have been quite depressing.

The Bad: Many of the aspects I enjoy in a book (character exploration, intriguing plot, and unique setting) were downplayed, it seemed to me, in favor of making the theme and character arcs as obvious as possible. There were a great many good and interesting characters, however the cast as a whole didn't seem to hang together correctly. The emotions seemed, though deep, rather generic, without enough character in them. The writing itself was fairly good, but it lacked finish or consistent vibrancy. Descriptions seemed repetitious at times, and not well honed. Sometimes they were original, but original without character or great skill. Also, there are points where the narrative is paused for chunks of exposition about the world. Some people prefer it that way, but personally it annoys me, and I like it better when the details of a fantasy world are revealed through the story rather than through explanation by the narrator.

My copy of this book was given to me for free in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Enthralling Story not to be Missed 24. November 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
This is not the first fiction by K. M. Weiland that I've read. My favorites among her works are her powerfully moving novel Behold the Dawn and her gem of a story "The Memory Lights," which to me is a model of excellence in short story writing.

This story is a gem too--or better a necklace, an array of gems. Honestly, it's gut-rending emotions remind me of the Shakespeare tragedies I read in college. It's war scenes remind me of Lord of the Rings, complete with impossible odds and life-changing decisions. And it's jewels of wisdom remind me of the works of C. S. Lewis.

If you like suspenseful fiction, here's your book. Once I started it, not only was it hard to put down, it also kept me up to 2 AM that last night because I just had to finish it. Tired but enjoying myself thoroughly. This is fiction that keeps you on the edge of your seat but also has substance.

I've read novels and short stories that are categorized as literature, with their universal themes and the gamut of human emotions and experiences. This novel has all that too. Weiland shows us, among other key insights, that the gift of being able to believe is so essential, so human; and that courage is not the absence of fear but that admirable capacity for doing what's right when it is so very hard; and that like her characters we are all flawed, yet there is within a potential for greatness. And she shows us that the finest of those among us who are fortunate to attain to authentic greatness don't usually think of themselves as great.

Combine all that with the love, the humor, the despair, the agonizing decisions that must be made, the moving movements that characterize really good stories, and you'll find in this novel, indeed, one not to be missed.

A significant challenge for this author was the creation of another world, parallel to our own present-day one. That's never easy. But Weiland comes through very well. The other world she built has its own scenery, animals, culture, traditions, even its people "of faith"--and those not so persuaded. There are convincing languages, characters that provide comic relief--much needed at times with a story this intense! People that will make you angry and others you will admire. The world is convincing and the characters are vivid, and like in all quality stories they grow and learn, and many of them become better people. Of course the arch-villain and his co-conspirators never seem to "get it."

I constantly read fiction. Some of them novels and stories in order to review them. I'm too often disappointed by the apparent lack of craft as well art. A number of these works easily demonstrate that the author isn't really ready for publication, even though his or her potential may be discernible. I can often find some good qualities so that my review doesn't have to be wall-to-wall negative, but a number I just cannot recommend.

Gladly, this one I can. I recommend it highly.

Sci-fi and fantasy fans, buy this book. You will enjoy it. The rest of you who may occasionally read Sci-fi/fantasy, or haven't at all, but who welcome a whoppin' good story, you'll enjoy it too.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Another free copy review 13. Juni 2013
Von Stephanie Traylor - Veröffentlicht auf
Like another reviewer, I received a free copy of this book to review. Knowing this, I took extra care to be objective. Unfortunately, unlike this other reviewer, I couldn't finish the book. It lost my attention about eight chapters in. This is NOT to say that Weiland is a poor writer; instead, I think it shows a misplaced talent (more on that at the end). The scenes in the real world are excellent: the details are sharp and the characters visible in my imagination, if a bit one-dimensional.

It's not so in the dream world scenes. Despite the author's attempt to describe this other world, I could never quite imagine it. I never had a clear mental image of what the nonhuman races look like or how the world is laid out. If this is a stylistic choice to make the world read like a half-remembered dream, then it works very well. But as an exercise in world building, something seems to be lacking.

The dream world characters also seem a bit lacking, but perhaps they improve by the story's end. I found the heroes to be slightly flat, and what immersion I did have was broken totally at the mention of the brothers named Eroll and Phlin--clearly a reference to the swashbuckling Errol Flynn.

You may think me unfair to the book because I didn't finish it, but I think the fact that I had no interest in finishing it is also a good reason to review it. Don't get me wrong; there were parts I thought to be exquisite writing--parts during which I found myself wishing I had thought of Weiland's way of describing something. But for a world so unlike our own, it all should have felt like that. It never fully grabbed me; I was always aware that I was reading a book. That's why I couldn't finish it.

Now, a bright note: I would like to see what the writer can do with the urban fantasy genre, since she does show great strength describing cityscapes!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Engaging, intruiging, fantastic(al)! 25. November 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Dreamlander is a masterpiece in the fantasy speculative fiction genre.

With precise strokes Ms. Weiland paints a vibrant world in the vein of stories such as Black by Ted Dekker; a dreamer living in two worlds, at once, faced with mayhem and havoc in both. This is Weiland's first excursion into fantasy, a change from her two previously published historical fiction books, and she has hit the proverbial nail on the head.
As an admittedly cynical fantasy reader I was impressed to see the neatly avoided fantasy pitfalls of formulaic worldbuilding: ancient elves, darkly muttered spells, and the ever popular unicorn, troll or fairy. Instead, Dreamlander offers an immersive world with it's own natural and believable history and culture; her unique sideline characters Pitch and Raz, are one of the best the best supporting duo I have read.

The scenery description was done tastefully, properly setting the scene without stopping the flow of the story.
And last but not least, the emotion of the story. Inside its binding, Dreamlander contains a heart wrenching plot line of failure, hope, and sacrifice. Not content to settle for a dash of emotion to pull the story along, Weiland pulls back the curtain on the quagmire of the human heart. Readers intimately share the heartaches and fears the characters face, as well as rejoice with their triumphs and applaud selfless sacrifice. Because of this, Dreamlander becomes something bigger than itself.

I finish Dreamlander better for having read it and urge you to try it for yourself.
