RELEASE DATE OCTOBER 3, 2013
A violent war has waged in secret underneath the notice of humanity since the beginning of time. Evil has pledged the destruction of humanity in spite of a power those that covet it could not possibly contain. Now the Warriors have inherited this fight and are honor-bound to rid the world of this ancient malevolence. By guarding the most precious, piercing light they possess—their female kin known as the Oracles, or Dreamers—the Warriors have a chance against the darkness.
Chantal Breelan has suffered from horrific nightmares for most of her life, believing something is wrong with her to have such visions of destruction. But when creatures of terror came crawling out of the shadows to hunt her down shortly after her eighteenth birthday, she discovered the truth. Her dreams became reality, throwing her headfirst into a battle wrought by cursed monsters, where death and torture lie at every turn.
Mathias is a descendant of a Fallen Angel and a powerful Warrior. He vows his life in service to pay recompense for the sins of their fathers by guarding Chantal from within the shadows. Long has he fought, shedding sweat and blood, hoping that his struggles wouldn’t be in vain. With Chantal’s life in danger, he’s been forced to reveal himself, yet she has managed to surprise him with her fierce tenacity and strength. In his sacrifice, he finds redemption and life’s ultimate reward—a love to surpass all time.
Now Chantal has picked up the reins of her birthright and stands by her Warrior kin, by Mathias. She’s on a mission to rescue others like herself. Yet, in this challenge, a battle of wits is exposed. New players are discovered, throwing strategies into question. When the truth comes to light, can Chantal hold her band of brothers together, or will they crumble under the weight of betrayal?
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. If you thought Chantal had it bad the first time around in Legacy of a Dreamer, you haven’t seen anything yet!! This girl has so much stuff going on that it’s no wonder this series is more than 2 books!! There are so many monsters and bad guys coming after her and the possibility of a traitor in the mix as well. But, Chantal is back to butt-kicking and Oracle protecting and she’s doing it with or without the help of the Warriors, even if it kills her.
This is such a good series. I love Allie Jean’s writing and her descriptions about all of the boogey monsters and such. It is a very vivid book and I can imagine the scenarios and characters really well. You can feel the love that her and Mathias feel for each other, as well as the love that all of the Warriors have for the Oracles. Chantal’s brother Damon is one nasty dude and she has depicted him as such in the book. I don’t expect him to be very handsome at all, just enough to catch the eye, but when you look at him long and hard, the ugly starts to show.
I really can not wait until the next book comes out as this is another cliffhanger. There are a lot of unknowns as the end of this book and I would really like to get some of these questions answered. However, because I’ve already read the book and it doesn’t come out until October, I am going to have to (im)patiently await it’s arrival. Bad news for Allie Jean! She may get hounded and heckled to release that sucker early!! 🙂 Especially if you all will pick them up and read them and heckle her along with me!!
