Animal control officer Gwen Revmore has no use for the gods. They’ve never answered any of her prayers—even after a tragic accident leaves her husband dead, and her young son gravely injured.

But after her estranged grandfather shows up at the hospital to urge her to try one more time to save the boy, Gwen decides there’s nothing left to lose. She asks Nathao, the powerful King of Dreams, for help, and he agrees to save Sam—but like most favors, the help will come at a price.

King Nathao needs to replace an employee killed in an attack on his lands, and he promises to save Gwen’s son if she agrees to take on that very important job of Courier. Gwen will work closely with Nathao’s other staff, including her grandfather, and serve as the King’s public face for his congregations around the world. She will also be his official emissary to other gods.

Gwen soon finds herself caught in a dangerous conflict as Nathao and rival god Bayel struggle for followers and power. In a world where gods are created and shaped by human belief, these beings will stop at nothing to gain more worshippers—regardless of who is caught in the crossfire.

About the Author:

Patrice Sikora has worked in radio news for most of her life, and has always been in love with the power of the medium. She and her husband have three sons and currently share their home with several cats and Italian greyhounds.

An avid reader herself, Patrice was inspired to write the first book of the Dream King’s Courier series when, one day while on her daily commute to work in New York City, she found herself without anything to read.

Review:

For me, author voice is almost everything, and it will make or break a novel and my enjoyment of it. I need to hearoriginality and know that the author is not trying to sound or writelike someone else, but is telling her story in a whole new way, whatever that story may be. I feel like I can smell a fake a mile away, andbelieve me I've read my fair share of books from authors who are'trying' to emulate better, more accomplished authors. What impressed me the most here was that I thought that Patrice Sikora's writing stylehas the confidence and delightful quirkiness of a much more seasonedpro... was a bit surprised to see this is her first novel. The maincharacters had that elusive 'flavor' that only comes when they are fully realized and fleshed out, something that is not easily done, especially in a novel of this depth and complexity, and the prose was lyrical andlush... almost poetic at times, and authentic "fantasy" at other times.Great plot with characters that are wonderfully addicting! Recommend for fans of paranormal adventure who want something a little different that the typical stuff out there, and with a little more substance. (4-5stars) Nicole Hastings-- Goodreads; Shelfari; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers

This was the first book I've read by this authorPatrice Sikora but it certainly won't be the last (in fact, I'm alreadyon book 2, "PAWN" now!). She has a gift for writing descriptive andlife-like scenes that bring the characters to life with natural sounding dialogue (important!) and good action, even if there were some partsthat were slower and could have used more tension and higher stakes. Ilike that this book didn't feel stale or derivative of anything I'veever read before. It is a hefty read that covers a lot of ground, butdoes so with remarkable depth. It is humorous, quirky, jaw-dropping,surprising, sad, and inspiring... all the qualities I look for in a goodnovel, and it delivered an emotional win. Recommend for ages 17 on up. (4-5 stars) Nicole Flood-- Goodreads; Shelfari; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers
