Debut book by New Zealand Author, Garth Lawless, opens a new world of Danger and Adventure. Shortlisted for the Sir Julius Vogel Awards 2013. The first novel in the series, “Guardians of the Shimmer," immerses the reader into DreamTime, a world created by everyone’s imagination It’s a young adult novel featuring Cole and Lily Fletcher, a couple of Kiwi kids who are on their way home from a camping trip with their parents when an accident catapults them into DreamTime, the place where people’s dreams exist. As if that isn’t enough of a shock, they then discover that their parents are part of the Blue Ghost, long time Guardians of the shimmery barrier that separates reality from dreams. The Guardians serve to protect sleepers, ensuring that they return safely to their RealTime selves. The only problem is the VELI, dark and sinister monsters of nightmare, who are no longer prepared to dwell in the shadows

From Lee Murray, multi-winner of the Sir Julius Vogel awards:
“An atmospheric story which hurtles along, this is a wonderful debut and a great read for fans of fantasy”
From Joanne Rye-McGregor, a local film director and producer:
“How wonderful to have a book I can recommend to older children that has strong social morals! A good read that doesn’t sell sex, drugs or gratuitous violence! Yay! It’s clever that both girls and boys can identify with a hero.”
From Lynne McAnulty, local writer:
From the moment I realized the fantasy is set in New Zealand, is well written, and its antagonists are a family of parents and teenagers, I knew the author is on a winner. His descriptive passages are vivid; we see the green bush, the space between the Shimmer curtain, the safe haven, the dream worlds ... writing which drew me on, reading until ungodly hours of the morning...Finishing with an unresolved dilemma, Lawless leaves us demanding "where's the next in the series?"
