Raising Sleeping Stones
When sisters Kiva and DeeDee Stone discover a mysterious plot that threatens them and everything they care about, they have to take a crash course in the ancient art of DreamKeeping to survive. As two elder DreamKeepers lead them up the Varruvyen river to the Eyle of Return, they show the girls how to gain dream powers greater than anything they had ever imagined. But can they become strong enough to face the monsters that haunt their dreams at night, strong enough to fight the enemies that draw nearer each day? The answer lies somewhere in the broken history of Orora Crona, the Valley of Dreams lost centuries ago, and whoever can piece it together first will rule for centuries to come.

Life for Kiva Stone in the town of Solasenda is all about ‘Moving Up’ – everyone has their fixed place in a Guild of their expertise, toiling their lives away according to the rigid and mindless pyramid system that has been imposed on them. Grind and mastering a craft will let one climb the social and economic ladder. Failure means one will stay at the bottom of the social pyramid. When Kiva and her sister DeeDee discover a mysterious plot that threatens them and everything they care about, they have to take a crash course in the ancient art of DreamKeeping to survive and fight the enemies.

Raising Sleeping Stones (The Orora Crona Chronicles, Book 1) by P.H.T. Bennet is a great tale of coming-of-age and adventure, where one should learn to trust their instincts and the power of dreams. The premise is intriguing and original. Initially it took some time for me to grasp the world building, but when I did, the world that Bennet created is truly fascinating. Characterization is excellent; DeeDee is my favorite. The illustrations are vibrant and eye-catching. Bennet takes advantage of today’s ‘smartphones and apps’ trend by including fun puzzle solving and unlocking hidden illustrations with the Raising Sleeping Stones app. This certainly boosts the book’s appeal, not just to its targeted readers. All in all, Raising Sleeping Stones is a fun, interactive and creative way to tell a story. Both young and adult readers will definitely enjoy this series. I look forward to the next installment.
