This series is soooo good, I am so into it that it is hard to explain.
At first I didn’t understand what Lexi is up to with these dream sequences, because honestly they were throwing me off course in the beginning. I didn’t understand the relevance of who the characters were and why they were even included in the story. I kept remembering the title of the book Dreams of the Forgotten, so I trusted in Lexi to lead the way. My advice is to remember what the dreams are about as the reason does become clear further into the book you get.
Tristan and Ushna’s compound has been growing. In this book we are introduced to Stanley and Jory, childhood friends of Tristan and Ushna’s, and they literally come bounding into the story. This was a real comedic scene. The children of Daniel also come to live at the compound after Daniel abandons them. There is also a group of Magi that come to kill Randy but it turns out they just had bad intel and they turned out to be good. Of course we can’t forget the magic, this has a big role in this book from it’s effects on Stanley and Jory and also rings.
A lot happened in this book and I think that this book is really the springboard to the rest of the series, but you never know. This is a World that Lexi has in her mind and the way that she will build it and expand upon it, only she knows. I just love going for the ride and try to guess what is happening and what is about to happen. I do want to say though, I really hope that Tristan has the pups in Book 4.
For Tristan and Ushna, nothing comes easy and with each passing day the challenges grow and the dangers multiply. The safe home they are building for their family and tribe is threatened from all sides, and the peace they seek is being torn apart by enemies and internal strife. Tristan dares not reveal his condition to any but those closest to him, all the while he’s plagued by dreams he cannot remember upon waking…
And over all of it hangs the knowledge that his time with Ushna is running out. Because Ushna already has a Flame awaiting rebirth, and though Tristan would die to protect that bond, he constantly struggles against his beast who demands they bind Ushna to their side.
