    I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS! I can't wait to see what broke Eliza and Wallace. But... DON'T WRITE FOUR BOOKS AND THEN GO INTO HERMIT MODE.

    Amazingg!! All I want in life now is for this book to be published so I can have my own hard copy to love and cherish forever! And for the rest of the series to be written and published as well!

    "Sleep is for the weak." Holy Zeus, this was splendid!! I love the idea of fighting monsters and doppelgangers in dreams! So surreal. I used to think there wasn't a lot of good stuff on Wattpad...this has proved me utterly wrong. And all the art Francesca has made for this is so aesthetic! Really looking forward to reading more by Frances Zappia.

    If this is anything close to as good as the characters in Eliza and Her Monsters think it is, it will be amazing.

    All my admiration goes to the writer, I'm stunned!! (unable to breathe, live for a while, etc). I thought it'd be great, but not THIS GREAT!! I'm still shaking inside of all that happened from the beginning till the end and I need more!

    A little unedited and info-dump-y, but still a fun read! Excited to see how Francesca Zappia chooses to continue the series. I am especially curious to see whether she chooses to write a fifth book or go into hermit mode.

    What if she doesn't write the rest of the series? Ahhhhh. It's so exciting! I usually can't get into online books but that was so fun!

    3.5 🌟 I had heard that this was mentioned in Eliza and Her Monsters by the main character so I read it beforehand so I could get any references that were made. I really enjoyed the story and the artwork. The characters were relatable and the world building was amazing and immursive. I hope that eventually Francesca can get enough interest in it so she can get a physical copy published. It would make a wonderful companion to EaHM for any readers shelves!

    I love Zappia's writing. Her world building is so fun and different. After reading Eliza & Her Monsters I was in a bit of a slump because I was sad to have finished the book, and didn't know what else to read. I discovered that she had written this (which is Eliza's favourite series) on wattpad, and just had to read it. The idea of going in and out of dreams is so different, and I loved the characters. The ending was so action packed, I couldn't even keep up, but it also felt a bit abrupt. I I love Zappia's writing. Her world building is so fun and different.

I'm also a little bitter she ended it where she did, but Zappia has promised to write the next when she has time, so at least there's that! Basically, if you liked E&HM, and want more of Zappia's writing, go download wattpad and give this a read!

    The Children of Hypnos is a free ebook by Francesca Zappia that's available on Wattpad. If you've read Eliza and Her Monsters, I would strongly recommend that you read this book as well because it's basically the series that Eliza is obsessed with and what her fan-art has been all about. I would also say that this is a little different from Zappia's other novels though because it's definitely more YA fantasy than YA contemporary fiction which is what Eliza and Her Monsters and Made You Up were like.

I would also say that this is a little different from Zappia's other novels though because it's definitely more YA fantasy than YA contemporary fiction which is what Eliza and Her Monsters and Made You Up were like. Even if you haven't come across Zappia's other work, I would go recommend that you try the book out for yourself anyway because the book subverts some of the tropes that I've come across in YA fantasy and is a pretty original take on the world of nightmares and dream-hunters. The book reminds me of Rachel Hawkins' Hex Hall in the best way possible because it's also set in an academy where teenagers with special abilities study, the world-building is pretty original and fresh and Emery and Wes are a compelling set of characters that you end up really caring about. The Children of Hypnos takes place in an alternative universe where nightmares are real tangible beings that can be fought and where being a dreamhunter is an actual profession (more like a calling, if you will). Emery Ashworth is a dreamhunter, coming from a long lineage of really awesome dreamhunters who seem pretty invulnerable despite the dangers involved in dreamhunting. Emery knows that she has a difficult legacy to live up to and it doesn't help that she seems to have been saddled with one of the most useless partners from her class - Wes, who seems like a real stickler in the mud and seems pretty incapable of defending himself, much less to keep up with her speed. Despite their differences, Emery and Wes are forced to work together because of their forced pairing and they two of them end up stumbling across a mystery involving a rogue dreamhunter, his nightmares and questions about what their school has been hiding from them. The book started off simple enough, about a girl whose family's legacy seems difficult to live up to and about a boy who seems totally inept at his job of dreamhunting. But there's more than meets the eye. The girl has a stone-cold exterior because of her own fears about whether she will ever be good enough to match up with her legacy. And the boy may not be as inept as he appears to be, but is hiding something from everyone. And when the two of them are sent to gather intelligence on a rogue dreamhunter, that's when the story really gets good because there are twists and turns abound. Is the dreamhunter really rogue? Is their school's version of events always accurate? Has dreamhunting always been this way? Zappia creates a world with certain fixed rules and then goes about subverting the rules and interrogating them. She also manages to avoid some of the more obvious cliches in YA fantasy. I'm glad that Emery and Wes aren't paired together romantically because that's just been a tired trope in YA fantasy. I'm also glad that both Emery's parents are still alive (even if they seem a little absent to the main storyline). Overall, I would recommend this read.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book had such an original premise. How does anyone have such creativity to come up with a storyline like this? It amazes me. To have doppelgängers play a huge part in your life, in a world of nightmares and dreams. To live in fear of something for your whole life. This book was written so beautifully, the pacing was perfect. I love the characters, especially Klaus, as surprising as that is.

I felt like he was one of the only people to actually step out of what society tells them is right or wrong, and risks a life of simplicity to research what’s the truth. I wish I could know more about the characters. The history between Maura and Klaus. But Jojo..... I sensed what was going to happen as soon as he was mentioned in the book. But the way it happens, kills me. One thing I really appreciate is the fact that it's a wattpad book. This app that I've silently been looking for treasures. And this is definitely one. Wattpad may be a site full of fanfics and sometimes weird kinky stuff BUT I can't deny there are some beautiful books that are well written. NOW I NEED A SEQUEL ASAP. This is why I don’t deal well with incomplete series, I need to read the next book as soon as I’m finished with the first.

    -2.5-3 stars. This is an unedited serial novel and there are places where that is obvious. It probably would have worked a lot more smoothly with a professional editor, but it wasn't that bad. -I'm honestly not sure if this actually counts towards my 2017 reads but I counted Kindred Spirits and I figure that if I counted that I may as well count this too. -This is reminiscent of Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunters world, but its not exactly a carbon copy.

    The End (?) Emery She pulled her head away from him. "Of course I want to keep Wes as a partner. He helped me when everyone else was lying and using me as a bait." Wes He paused and looked at her. "We're partners. We stick together." Emery "I'll do the fighting. You do the dreamforming. We're like two halves of a whole hunter." This was a great story. I still don't know why it took me so much time to finish it. Full of action and a creative storyline, I really wish this becomes a full book series in the future. I n/>/>/>/>

    Okay so I was brought here by Eliza and Her Monsters and this story completely blew me out of the water!!! I was expecting this to sound less like a fantasy novel and more like a YA fiction story but of course Zappia blew me out of the water with her talent. Be warned: all the mentions of this book ending in a cliffhanger in Eliza are completely true, your heart will be wrenched and immediately crave another chapter. But it's well worth it if you ask me.

    I read this on Wattpad and adored it. I loved the characters. While the world building wasn’t perfect it was an intriguing world. I haven’t read something with this particular premise so it was unique to me. I can’t wait to read the next installment. Seriously I can’t wait. I want to hunt her down and make her tell me what happens.

    I am enchanted and in love. Read Eliza and her Monsters first, and you will understand. The only issue I have is that I had to read it on Wattpad. Not liking the format of the website, but oh well. Totally worth it for such a story. An entertaining read with a solid balance of humor and action.

    This is so predictable. I mean the concept and the idea is so original and I love it but I keep predicting everything that's going to happen and I can't take it anymore with the predictability. I loved Eliza and her Monsters so I thought that I'd love this too. Apparently I was wrong.
