3 Reviews
Every morning Dr. Spencer Reston, a dream-research scientist on space station Gotham, wakes up exhausted--with the nagging feeling that something terrible is about to happen. Spence soon discovers that he has become a vital link in a cosmic coup masterminded by a mysterious creature known as the Dream Thief... and all civilization hangs in the balance.

Here is science fiction on the grand scale of "Dune" and Asimov's Foundation series. "Dream Thief" has it all: fast-paced adventure, alien settings, wonderful character development, cliff-hanging suspense, epic plot, and compelling spiritual underpinnings.

This is one of the books on my shelf that I actually have read more than once. One of the others is Byzantium by the same author. His way of weaving a great story with so much depth and symbolism is I guess what attracts me most. Read full review

This is an early book by Lawhead, and it is one of the few, if not the only science fiction, that he has written. Though this book has flaws, I do wish that he would write more science fiction. He introduced me to new concepts concerning prayer and God's redemption of the universe. Read full review
