Review & $100 GC Giveaway - Stolen Dreams by Christine Amsden @ChristineAmsden (Cassie Scot #4)

Stolen Dreams
Cassie Scot #4
by Christine Amsden

Blurb:  Edward Scot and Victor Blackwood have despised one another for nearly a quarter of a century, but now their simmering hatred is about to erupt.

When Cassie Scot returns home from her sojourn in Pennsylvania, she finds that her family has taken a hostage. Desperate to end the fighting before someone dies, Cassie seeks help from local seer Abigail Hastings, Evan Blackwood’s grandmother. But Abigail has seen her own death, and when it comes at the hand of Cassie’s father, Victor Blackwood kills Edward Scot.

But things may not be precisely as they appear.

Evan persuades Cassie to help him learn the truth, teaming them up once again in their darkest hour. New revelations about Evan and his family make it difficult for Cassie to cling to a shield of anger, but can Evan and Cassie stop a feud that has taken on a life of its own? Conclusion to the Cassie Scot series.

She loves to write and it is her dream that others will be inspired by this love and by her stories. Speculative fiction is fun, magical, and imaginative but great speculative fiction is about real people defining themselves through extraordinary situations.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***Received the ebook for free for an honest review

The cover is way cool and probably my favorite of them all :)

I totally love this series, and this book rocked as much as the rest of the series.  The only thing I do not like is that there will be no more stories on Cassie which make me really sad.

There is so much going on in this series you are definitely not bored reading it.  I wanted to read it straight through and found it really difficult when I had to put it down to take care of my family.  Cassie is awesome as always.  I love her independence and how she always does what she feels is right whether others agree or not even if it is the family.  I wanted to slap Evan a time or two, but I was happy in the end :)  This review was harder because I don’t want to give anything away, but so much happens in this story and you don’t want to miss out.

Christine does an awesome job with details and making the story come alive.  I’m glad she has a couple books planned for other characters in this world, but I definitely hope this world doesn’t go away because I want more and lots of it. 

I highly recommend this series it is a fun series that mixes paranormal and mystery together with lots of action and drama.
