Stolen Dreams Reviews

  • Tanja ~ KT Book Reviews

    Whelp, all good things must come to an end, and sadly it is time to say goodbye to one of my favorite heroines: Cassie Scot. What we get in the final book of this fantastic series is tears, laughter, understanding, and closure.Just being able to watch Cassie grow into her own was a great to see. From sheltered to fierce, Cassie has kept all her good qualities. She shows compassion and a caring attitude even when she, herself, is at risk. In a world where nothing is done freely and favors are pai [...]

    I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest reviewI really loved Stolen Dreams, the final book in the Cassie Scot series. There's really no way to write an in-depth review without major spoilers. So I think I'm going to focus instead on what I liked and didn't like.I didn't like that this is the final book. Along the way, I came to really like the characters, and it kills me to see the series end. There's so much more to tell. I'd love to hear about Cassie's siblings, about he [...]

    This is definitely the best one in the series! This series went out with a bang. It is also my favorite cover.This book was fun, suspenseful, and interesting - a real page turner for sure.Christine did an excellent job with this one. The character development was just great! By the third and forth books you really get to know the characters and their personalities. but I think it is really that Christine's writing just keeps getting better and better! At least thats the way it felt to me.Plus th [...]

    Stolen Dreams by Christine Amsden is a 2014 Twilight Times publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.The day I have anticipated and also dreaded the last book in the Cassie Scot series. While I was excited about reading the book, I was also sad. I have really come to love these characters and are invested in them. So, I didn't want the series to end. Having said that, it was probably best to give the readers a bit of closure especially in the situation betw [...]

    Finally the end of the series has arrived. I was really hoping all those pesky questions would get answered. Thankfully most are, some are kind of vague still.A is typical with this series we jump into the middle of things. There are gaps in time between books that are told but not shown. Sometimes that makes you feel like you are playing catch-up with the story. Things are explained, it just takes a little time.Everything is not happiness and light in this book. Things are coming to a head and [...]

  • Laura

    Disappointing and infuriating. I am so tired of books in which women must give up something for men. It's not just the heroine in this story but a whole theme that runs throughout in which women are victims who must be saved by big strong men.

    2.5 starsMaybe. I'll have to think about it some more. RTC.

  • Frances

    Stolen Dreams is the final book in the Cassie Scot series. We have watched Cassie grow so much throughout the series. I had invested so much in my friendship with Cassie that this book was both anticipated and dreaded. The author did a masterful job with this book. I usually do not like the last book in a series. Too often it does not end the way I hoped for. A few times, in the final book, the characters did not even resemble the characters in the first few books. Stolen Dreams did not have eit [...]

  • books are love

    what a amazing and wonderful ending to this series. I have a few questions but nothing to do with Cassie and Evan. I wonder about Kaitlin and Jason-will they make it? Will she turn? will he stay who he is on the inside? I wonder about Evan and Madison-will they give each other a chance? will they become close? I wonder about Nicholas-will he beg Madison for forgiveness? will he take his new role serious? will he grow into the person we all hope he can be? Will he find himself with Madison foreve [...]

    There may be spoilers for previous books in my reviewWell, here we aree final book in the Cassie Scot series. I'm not at all ready to say goodbye to the characters I've grown fond of and have enjoyed reading about. I've watched Cassie develop into a wonderful character ~ friend, sister, daughter, significant other. She's not perfect and you know what? That's alright - she doesn't need to be perfect. The ability to relate to her on an emotional level stems from her being written like a normal eve [...]

    I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.The feud between the Scot and Blackwood families has been going on for many, many years. This of course has left Cassie Scot and Evan Blackwood; who have been sweet on each other since childhood in the middle of both of their father's fight all these years. But when Cassie learns the true reason behind their feud she becomes angry herself. Now Cassie hates Evan and wants nothing else to do with him ever. Evan himself is sho [...]

    3.5 stars. *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 chan [...]

    Disclosure: I received a review copy from the author in exchange for a honest review.4 1/2 Stars.Stolen Dreams is the fourth and final book in the Cassie Scot series, and what an amazing journey it’s been.The Blackwood and Scots have been in a feud with each other for years, but it isn’t till the final installment that we see the two families’ feud final boil over…with causalities on both sides. Like the previous books, Amsden works a multi-plot story interwoven with a main case in which [...]

  • Zili

    I've really enjoyed reading Christine Amsden's Cassie Scot series and was really unsure what to expect from the last instalment Stolen Dreams. I knew what I wanted to happened but I was concerned Christine may decide on an anti-HEA by throwing a major spanner in the works.If you've read the previous books then you'll remember Cassie wasn't exactly in the best place when the story ended. It was looking like she would never forgive Evan for his involvement in her magic situation. Stolen Dreams isn [...]

    Book series' are common now but often I find that my interest wanes after the second or third story, but this has not been the case with the Cassie Scot mysteries.

    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 s [...]

  • Jonel Boyko

    The Cassie Scot series really comes to an exciting peak with this novel. It is an intense novel, while still being a fun read. I devoured it in a single sitting. Amsden’s vivid & larger than life descriptions bring everything to the forefront in a very visual manner. The captivating storyline kept me on my toes, always wanting to know how things would pan out. The various levels of intrigue and deception are peeled away, allowing readers access to the innermost workings of the story. I lov [...]

  • Lori

    I have to say I'm not happy saying goodbye to a great series. I have grown to love the characters as much as the story itself. I'm happy Christine ended it with closure to everything we were wondering about. I'm going to miss Cassie, Evan, the Scot family, not so much the blackwoods though. This book as I have seen others say wasn't as good as the rest of the series , I have to say I felt at first I want very thrilled with it either but then as I read and everything was being brought out into th [...]

  • Sheila

    Stolen Dreams is the final instalment in the author’s Cassie Scot, paraNormal Detective series, and it packs a huge emotional punch into its storyline. Book three made Cassie’s small world global, dragging small-town magic and mystery into a nation-wide plot to change the magical world. But now, in book four, Cassie’s running home to friends and family, finding no safe place, and fighting the small-stage dangers that will define how the global is seen.Can a girl who is different ever learn [...]

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!***Received the ebook for free for an honest reviewThe cover is way cool and probably my favorite of them all :)I totally love this series, and this book rocked as much as the rest of the series. The only thing I do not like is that there will be no more stories on Cassie which make me really sad.There is so much going on in this series you are definitely not bored reading it. I wanted to read it straight through and found it really difficult when [...]

  • D.E.

    Stolen Dreams is the fourth and final book in the Cassie Scot series and it does not disappoint. All those loose ends and pesky questions are finally answered in this conclusion to the series. Everything being tied up in a neat little bow proves how great a storyteller Amsden is. She has clearly plotted and planned this series down to the most minute detail. Not only is the story great but it is well written as well with little witticisms thrown in here and there to keep the reader smiling despi [...]

    This is the conclusion of Cassie's story and some things finally become clear.Cassie returns home after a couple of months away and finds the Scots and the Blackwoods feuding and Evan in hiding because of her family's bounty on him.Cassie is avoiding Evan, refuses to speak to him and basically runs away instead of dealing with the plethora of issues they have to work through, which is something I find very frustrating. Her insistence that he is to blame for something he didn't actually do and he [...]

  • Michele

    Oh how I am going to miss the characters in this series. If anyone had told me I would fall in love with a YA series I would have laughed--but the laugh is on me. From the first book to the last I was enthralled. I read each one in one sitting--and hungered for more. I hope at some point Christine Amsden will continue the saga--there are many directions she could take.

    Started this series a little over a week ago. I've just finished the fourth book. What fun! The writing is superb. I can tell the four novels were carefully plotted and the entire arc hangs together perfectly. The twists are delightful. The characters are multidimensional. Fun! Good mystery and speculative fiction elements throughout.This fourth installment satisfied me on every level. Tied up plot points and gave me some things I never expected.
