Screamcatcher: Web World

Children/Young Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

When seventeen-year-old Jory Pike cannot shake the hellish nightmares of her parent’s deaths, she turns to an old family heirloom, a dream catcher. Even though she’s half blood Chippewa, Jory thinks old Native American lore is so yesterday, but she’s willing to give it a try. However, the dream catcher has had its fill of nightmares from an ancient and violent past. After a sleepover party, and during one of Jory’s most horrific dream episodes, the dream catcher implodes, sucking Jory and her three friends into its own world of trapped nightmares. They’re in an alternate universe—locked inside of an insane web world filled with murders, beasts and thieves. How can they find the center of the web where all good things are allowed to pass? Where is the light of salvation? Are they in hell?

Amazon Review

Jory thought that her nightmares were the worst thing that happened to her, but the dreamcatcher that she put in her bedroom to remedy those nightmares turned out to be her biggest nightmare. She and her friends found themselves trapped in a black & white world that was devoid of anything good. The people that roamed this new world were out to kill them, and the creatures that were attacking them were ancient and huge. Even the insects that were desperate for their blood were way bigger than their normal sizes. In their quest for light and colors, if those things still existed, they had to survive not only their sanity but also their lives.

The plot moves steadily towards the ending. Action, drama, and a hint of romance kept me, as a reader, entertained and eager to know where the story goes. The side characters, Darcy, Lander, Choice, Jory's grandfather, are very well placed. They all work beautifully with the protagonist, Jory, to develop the story into a delightful read. As the characters encounter with the wild creatures (both ancient and otherwise), they lose their energy and desire to move ahead. The author's adept writing makes their exhaustion, frustration, and pain almost contagious.

To develop the plot more entertainingly, the author has splashed the element of romance between Jory and Choice. The teenage attraction of Darcy towards Lander, an older guy with a weird attitude, never ceased to annoy me. It takes a supreme writing skill to be able to invoke such emotions in a reader, and the author has it. Reading Screamcatcher has been a fabulous experience.
