Laura comes from a world similar to our own but for one difference: The Place.
An unfathomable land filled with dreams of every kind and invisible to all but a select few: the Dreamhunters.
Treated as celebrities, the Dreamhunters catch larger-than-life dreams and relay them to audiences in the magnificent dream palace, The Rainbow Opera. Now, 15 year-old Laura and her cousin Rose are going to find out whether they are part of this prestigious group.
But nothing in their darkest nightmares can prepare them for what they are about to discover.
For within the Place lies a horrific secret kept hidden by corrupt members of the Government. And when Laura's father suddenly disappears, she realises that this secret has the power to destroy everyone she loves . . . 'A dramatic and original fantasy . . . a story of family affections and tensions - a tale of character and feeling as well as mysterious event'.
