Best of: Stolen Dreams (Cassie Scot #4) by Christine Amsden - Book Review

*Originally Posted: September 19, 2014
**2018 Note: This book left me with such a bad hangover, I kind of hated it for that. 2014 was the year of book hangovers for me, it sucked (truly) and is probably why I still have trouble starting some books today.

Stolen Dreams by Christine Amsden
Stolen Dreams (Cassie Scot #4) by Christine Amsden
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars.
Published June 25th 2014 by Twilight Times Books

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.

I'm always trying to find words beyond what I'm feeling buy simply put: I loved it.
The end.

As always I'd love to leave it at that, especially with this one. I'm not sure how many times I stopped and thought: "I don't think I can write a review for this." I'm a firm believer that the five stars should speak for themselves.

And speaking of those 5 stars that should be speaking for themselves I was pretty much ready to give it the 5 stars long before I was anywhere near the end.

The amazing ending that this amazing series deserved.

It had everything highs and lows, ups and downs. Answers and conclusions I've been wanting and waiting (more like hoping) for since the beginning.

If I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it (which did have an impact on my day/work), if I wasn't thinking about it during the day I was dreaming about it at night.

Which I did find amusing since it's titled Stolen Dreams and involves a lot of Cassie's dreams.
Which were also awesome. And something I would have like to have spent more time with.

I can not wait to revisit these characters and this world as soon as I can, because I will definitely be rereading this series first chance I get.
