What if there existed a dark kingdom forged on a web of evil spells, with a conniving king plotting to infiltrate the dreams of children all over the world?
What if he and the wicked witch on his side could inject the sleep of every child with the most horrid of nightmares... And all they needed was one very particular boy?
When Jeff's brother Matt is captured and spirited away to the kingdom of Drakmere, he knows he must save him. But who are the mysterious, cloaked strangers on Matt's trail? And what do they mean when they say Matt is a dream catcher?
Soon Jeff faces a choice: He can follow the strangers through the moonglow doorway into the perils of Drakmere, or stay at home and risk the possibility of never seeing his brother alive again. And time is running out, because Jeff must make his choice before the last of the moonbeams passes and the doorway closes forever...

Jeff Madison and the Shimmers of Drakmere is an unpredictable and exciting adventure, packed with mystery and suspense. The story reminded me a little bit of the Chronicles of Narnia, it is cleverly constructed, very fast-paced with many twists and turns. From the first chapter there was not a dull moment in this book, I listened to it in just one sitting! I am really looking forward to see more from this author and from Jeff.
Because I am not a native English a good narration means everything to me, and narration at this audiobook is AMAZING! I saw on Twitter that it is nominated for "Best voiceover" at the Voice Arts Awards and it was a reason more to purchase it. „Entertaining, fun and exciting“ is how I would describe this wonderful adventure in three words. It is suitable for all ages (not just kids) and I highly recommend it to all the fantasy lovers.
This is a very cute fantasy adventure about a boy who is trying to rescue his brother from the kingdom of Drakmere, a dark and magical place where witches, dragons and many other scary creatures dwell. Both me and my son have enjoyed listening to this audiobook, storytelling style was excellent with very well developed and intriguing characters. I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fantasy genre!
The book is awesome, the kids love it. If you have little ones, you need this book.
The story was out of this world, the voices were great!
Loved It, was very interesting!
the entire story had charm and was so entertaining that my kids never wanted to turn it off!
Every time we get in the car with the kids, they want to play the story. They love it!
The strong narration of the excellent writer Bernice Fischer and the powerful voice of the actor Matt Wolfe, are a real jackpot if you want to hear a great work of art. The content is unwrapping as a film tape, fast and dynamically. The characters and their experiences move in the sphere of the fantastic, which is dangerous. Evil, magic and nightmares on one side, and, Jeff, our little 12 years old hero, on the other side. I simply adore the triumph of good over evil, as in real life. My advice, don’t miss this awesome Audiobook, by no means. Give it a listen with your loved ones.
Great adventure story told in amazing voices. I could not stop listening, I could not find a follow up adventure I hope the author has started the next book I would like to join her on other adventures.
