Stolen Dreams (Cassie Scot #4)

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.

About the author:

 Christine Amsden has been writing fantasy and science fiction for as long as she can remember. She loves to write and it is her dream that others will be inspired by this love and by her stories.

My review:

An amazing conclusion. This series captured me from the first book, and although i'm sad it's over, this conclusion was very well written just as the 3 other had been done. I can't help but hold out hope i could see this story turned into a script. Christine is a talented writer and she has me as a fan for life.

In the page turning conclusion Cassie is thrown once again in the middle of the dramatic feud between her father and Evan's father. Victor killing her father Edward however is not something anyone saw coming... Could it really have been what the eyes of hundreds of witnesses have seen, or could it be a much more darker side of magic no one wanted to believe. Rather than be held hostage by Evan (for her own safety of course) she has accepted his offer to work together to investigate if Victor Blackwood was really the killer. While working together Evan hopes a bet of true love can help Cassie see she does love him, but her heart still stays focused on her father's killer. Exciting surprise is what becomes of Cassie's apprenticeship with Evan's grandmother. It appears Cassie does have something of value, and it's far rare than anything a wizard can do!
