Julie Review Avatar Julie’s Review:

Stolen Dreams is the final installment of the Cassie Scot series, and let me say the ending was spectacular. So I’ll just start from there. When all the secrets finally got revealed, I have to say everything was quite a surprise and I enjoyed it. For a moment there I wasn’t quite sure I was going to get the ending I wanted, but I did enjoy the way it all wrapped up. I liked Cassie’s gift and it was interesting to follow her as she understood what was going on and accepted herself for who she is and is not.

I liked the supporting characters as well, especially the story lines with Cassie’s two best friends. I also thought the actions taken by certain characters, such as her cousin for example, made a lot of sense in the situation they were in, even though the decision was not a good one for their own future. I liked the message of what people would sacrifice to protect others.

I think my main gripe would be the relationship between Cassie and Evan. The whole thing lacked feeling to me. Even the scene where Cassie finally accepts, or convinces herself is what it seemed more like, what her feelings really are felt dry to me. I expected more out of that scene, and the scenes that followed with them together.

I also thought the novel took a while to get to the good stuff, with the beginning and middle feeling a bit drawn out to me. It took a lot longer for me to get into the story than it should have, especially with this being the final book and how much I enjoyed the previous ones. But, overall, I did like it and am happy I got introduced to the series.

      Be super proud of me, I have a review scheduled for each week going into Oct lol.
      Yea I’ve been having issues with pacing lately, everything seems paced wrong to me no matter what I read, and I wonder what crazy hormonal imbalance is making me so hard to please these days. And will it go back to normal postpartum?
