My review for
The Dream Protocol: Descent
Adara Flynn Quick
4 out of 5 stars!
Book is awesome and crazy. We learn in the future that people fall asleep to dreams, but not just any dreams. These dreams are produced by the dream makers and are sold by the ministry.
Basically the ministry controls everyone and everything in the city. They set the rules.
One of the main rules is once a person turns 35 on their birthday they must leave the city, cast away. Because the ministry believes they are ruined and have no use for the city.
However Deirdre a young girl who disapproves of those rules starts to rebel. Deirdre and her friend Flynn have been trying to find ways out of the city without being detected. But when her friend Flynn who has been hiding a secret about himself his whole life gets exposed. Their need to flee is now more important then ever. See Flynn has a terrible disease that ages him faster then anyone they know.
But will they find a way out and to help others including Deirdre’s mother in time?
Give this book a go and find out that and more.

WHATEVER YOU DO, DON’T GET OLD. In fiery young Deirdre Callaghan’s home of Skellig City, no one has dreamt their own dream in over a thousand years. Dreams are produced by the Dream Makers and sold by the Ministry, the tyrannical rulers of the city. In Skellig City, years of life are awarded equally and the ruined are cast away beneath the city on their 35th birthday.
Unbeknownst to the Ministry, Deirdre’s handsome friend Flynn Brennan is afflicted with a terrible disease – a disease that accelerates the aging process. Knowing his fate if the Ministry should ever discover his illness, Flynn has lived his whole life hiding from their watchful eyes. When Flynn’s secret is finally discovered, Deirdre is determined to free him from the Ministry’s grasp. But to save him, she will have to reveal herself to a shadowy enemy…one that none of them even knew existed.
