“As Protectors of the night- me a Dreamcatcher and she a Dreamweaver- we were both sworn to guard humans for the rest of eternity.”
Catch Me as I fall is narrated by Daniel, a 17 year old boy, but he is not a normal 17 year old boy, he died in 1827. For the past 200 years, Daniel has been spending his nights in battles, as a Dreamcatcher, and that means Daniel fights off nightmares from digging into human’s dreams. No, he is not a ghost, he has been given a second life and he can still die and he would just end up in a black void, cease to exist. Daniel has grown a bit tired of fighting these nightmares, he is too burnt out, but things change when he is given a new charge after his current charge passes away.
Kalya is a depressed 16 year old who resides in a mental ward, and this is Daniel’s new charge! There’s something about Kalya that drew Daniel to her and he has never felt this way about anyone before and the nightmares seem to love her too. Daniel will stop at nothing to figure out why the nightmares love her so much and will do anything to protect her, including reveling himself to her.
This was a great book about good vs evil, both Dreamcatchers and Dreamwears would work together to stop the nightmares. I loved how the nightmares were played like a movie as the dreams were, but instead they were creatures. An example of what a nightmare could look like is; a scaly humanoid body, red eyes, and point claws, but all nightmares looked differently.
The story line wasn’t predicable either; there were so many different twists that kept the read interesting! The story also painted a great picture and made me use my imagination, which I love to do!
