...is a plateau of mental existence where people are able to communicate by the power of their thoughts alone.
These people-known as the Silent-find that the Dream is threatened by a powerful Silent capable of seizing control of other people's bodies against their will...and may be causing tremors within the Dream itself.
And if the "normals" learn of this, they will do anything to capture the Silent for use as a weapon - and the Dream itself may be shattered forever...

Steven Harper lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan, with his wife and son. When not at the keyboard, he sings, plays the folk harp, and collects folk music. In the past, he’s held jobs as a reporter, theater producer, secretary, and substitute teacher. He maintains that the most interesting thing about him is that he writes books. Currently he’s at work on a second Silent Empire novel.From School Library Journal:
Adult/High School-All sentient minds are connected to a place called The Dream, and without them it would cease to exist. Only a small percentage of genetically gifted beings, called the Silent, can consciously access it. Among the Silent is Kendi, a courageous and compassionate man of Aboriginal descent. Ominous storms have started to appear in The Dream, leaving dead or nearly dead Silents in their wake. At the same time, a brilliant new Silent mind has appeared, who Kendi must track down. The new mind turns out to be a remarkable teenager, Sejal, who has been living with his loving yet hardened mother in a ghetto. His family ultimately provides the key to calming the mysterious storms. Dreamer contains an underlying theme of severed ties longing for reconciliation and healing. Sejal's family is but one of a number of families ripped apart by governmental oppression. Kendi yearns to reconcile with his former beau, Ben. An army of lab-created Silents confined to a hellish existence scream out for the comfort of a mother's mind. However, there is an attitude of hope, and the characters come across as poignant without wallowing in self-pity. This exceptional first novel in a new series is a satisfying and complete work in itself. A diverse array of memorable characters and worlds makes this a book that YAs can relate to and enjoy.
