Review #241: John Dreamer- Elise Celine

Title: John Dreamer
Author: Elise Celine
Pages: 203
Format: ebook
Rating: 3.5 Stars
Summary: Andy wasn’t usually sure about much, but she was absolutely certain this was the weirdest day of her life as she stood stranded in the middle of a great white room with six strangers. Well, they were mostly strangers. She could have sworn she’d seen the guy with the green eyes before, and maybe that was why he kept staring at her. 

When a man calling himself the Guardian appeared and said they had come to make their deepest dreams come true, they embark on an adventure none of them ever imagined, and the consequences of their actions would change them forever.

"John Dreamer" is the first in a series of books set in the confines of the Great White Room.
Review: I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This cover is what initially drew me in. I love the chairs on the cover. I did find this novel to be a fast read but the story was a bit slow for me. I understand the underlying message that to succeed we need to overcome our fears, but I just wasn't that into it. It kind of reminded me of Divergent a bit with the fearscapes. I am kind of mad at how the book ended. It left me with a bunch of unanswered questions. Also it was open ended, like it may be a series or may be a standalone, who knows.
I will continue on if this is a series just to see if I get any answers.
