Blog Tour - Stolen Dreams (Cassie Scot #4) by Christine Amsden ~ Brianna's Review and $100 Gift Card #Giveaway
*I’d like to thank the author for providing me an ARC in exchange for my honest review.*
When I read the synopsis for this final book in the Cassie Scot series, I knew I had to read it, even if some things that had happened in the previous books were confusing or blurry in my memory. Thanks to the author, I received an early opportunity to do just that, and I am pretty happy that I did.
Cassie really came into her own in this book. Even if it wasn’t how I was expecting, she changed for the better, and learned to love herself as she was. I thought some of the changes near the end were a little bit odd for Cassie’s character, but I still liked her overall. Reading this series from her point of view has been really fun, and I’ll definitely miss her character.
The side characters in this book continued to grow. I felt really horrible for Madison, but the fact that she always stuck by her friends’ side made me love her even more. As for Kaitlin, I thought that she definitely didn’t deserve what she got. She was still a good friend to Cassie and Madison though. Finally, there was Evan. All the reasons I liked his character came into play in this novel. Sure, he was overbearing and overprotective, but he was also open and honest. I was wondering how he and Cassie would get anywhere in this novel, since the feud between their families was at an all-time high, but I needn’t have worried. Their relationship really matured, and turned into something good for both of them, although I do think certain things changed a bit fast.
This story revolved around the feud between the Blackwoods and Scots. There were arguments, curses, fights, and even a death. Through all this, Evan and Cassie finally learned to work together, in order to discover what was really going on. I liked the romantic element in this book, even if some things did happen a bit too abruptly.
Either way, I couldn’t put this book down once I really got into it, and it was a good final installment in Cassie’s story. I enjoyed the friendship and romance, as well as the mystery. I did find the revelations and ending a bit anticlimactic, along with some of the things that happened with Evan and Cassie. Still, if you’ve read the first three books in this series, you should definitely pick up this one and see how everything ends. And if you haven’t read a book in this series, you need to go and pick up the first novel. The world and characters make this a series any paranormal reader won’t want to miss.
