In The Dream Gatherer, Kristen Britain presents a novella and two short stories set in the universe of her bestselling series in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the publication of her first novel, Green Rider.

Following the events of Firebrand, Estral Andovian travels back to Selium to assume her position as the new Golden Guardian. When she gets separated from her traveling companions, she uncovers a path to a place she has known only through stories, a place her best friend Karigan G'ladheon once visited: Seven Chimneys, the home of the eccentric Berry Sisters.

At Seven Chimneys, Estral finds respite and the temporary restoration of her voice, lost to the malicious magic of the Second Empire's leader, Grandmother. Guilt about her role in Sacoridia's most recent battle--and Karigan's recent torture at the hands of the Second Empire--still plagues her, but under the Berry sisters' warm hospitality, she has time to heal and reflect.

In honor of their recent homecoming and the arrival of their guest, the Berry sisters propose a party. Like all things at Seven Chimneys, this is no ordinary party. Using one of their father's strange devices, known as the draugmkelder, the Berry sisters summon the other guests to their party--the somnolent inhabitants of the realm of dreams.
But not all dreams are kind--and dangers lurk where magic dwells. When a nightmare slips into the festivities, it will take all of Estral's talents, and some help from friends old and new, to banish this haunting spectra...

This book includes illustrations and backstory on the creation of Green Rider by the author, and a special introduction by award-winning science fiction and fantasy author, Julie E. Czerneda.
