Description from the publisher:


“Oh, God! We can hurt each other. Whatever we do to each other in the dream, we’ll do it to ourselves for real…”

When her own dreams are visited by a mysterious woman in a red dress, Sara realizes she has something she never expected: a counterpart, someone outside her family who shares her talent to see other people’s dreams.

When the woman in red keeps showing up in other dreams as well, leaving ruined lives in her wake, Sara knows she has something she never imagined: a nemesis.

Now, Sara must track the woman in red down in the waking world, before she’s forced to fight for her life in her dreams…

“Waking Dream” is the exciting fifth novel in the “Dreams” series.



Dr. Sara Alderson is once again using her abilities to dream walk in order to solve a mystery that includes military espionage and seduction!  She has also learned that injuries received in the dream world, will exist in the real world when she awakes.  There is another dream-walker intent on using the dream world to further her husband’s career and the woman-in-red isn’t concerned with whom she harms.  Sara is focused on keeping everyone safe, but can she when faced with this villain?


While the book could stand alone, it is best if you read the series in order.  Mr. DiBenedetto has once again written a story that will have you questioning what you see in your dreams at night.  I loved how he interwove the Harry Potter stories into this book, providing that touch of being able to relate to the characters in this book. 


I was very happy when I reached the end of the book and found out that there is going to be a sixth book in this series.  I look forward to continuing this journey with Sara and the rest of the Alderson family.

J.J. (James) DiBenedetto was born in Yonkers, New York. He attended Case Western Reserve University, where as his classmates can attest, he was a complete nerd. Very little has changed since then.

He currently lives in Arlington, Virginia with his beautiful wife and their cat (who has thoroughly trained them both). When he's not writing, James works in the direct marketing field, enjoys the opera, photography, and the New York Giants, among other interests.

The "Dreams" series is James' first published work.
