VBT Review: Legacy of a Dreamer

Legacy of a Dreamer
By: Allie Jean


Chantal Breelan is a ward of the state, living under the care of a woman who is cold and heartless. Her past is a mystery, and her future is even more uncertain. She can’t recall why she had been taken from her parents and so she’s left with nothing but an empty hole where her childhood should have been. When she awakens from her nightmares, she’s left with terrible, violent images, as well as a boy whose face is oddly familiar, yet can’t be placed.
Scared and alone, Chantal begins to confide in an imaginary friend – a shadow in the shape of a man who stands in the corner of her room. She is comforted when she believes he listens to her. On her eighteenth birthday, Chantal is forced to leave her foster home. She moves to New York City, but the start of her new life doesn’t begin as smoothly as she’d hoped. One night at a subway station, Chantal meets a young boy who runs away from her, and she’s compelled to follow him down into the tunnels. But this Rabbit Hole reveals a world where reality is a nightmare.
Mathias is a descendant of a Fallen Angel and beholden to wage an unfathomable war against an ancient evil, spawned by greed and spite. A powerful fighter, he and his brethren of Warriors vow to pay recompense for the sins of their fathers by guarding the most precious, piercing light against the darkness – the females of their kind. The Warriors' pledge is to find and protect the Oracles, their sisters and kin. Long have they fought, shedding sweat and blood, hoping that their struggles are not in vain. Yet in his sacrifice and service he may find life’s ultimate reward – a love to surpass all time.

Review: I think my dreams came true! I've been looking for a story that thrilled me and chilled me. I am a sucker for creepy stories that have a tendency to make me jump and get me all rattled. Legacy of a Dreamer did just that! The beginning had an eerie start and then there were a few slowish parts, but it definitely picked up and kept me going! My stomach was in knots as I read on, because there were so many moments of goosebumps breaking out on my arms from the eerie factor.

Chantal is living on her own, but strange nightmares plague her, and things happen in real life that just aren't adding up. She's unsure of what to do, but everything is only getting worse as the nightmares and reality collide. 

It's a story of great mystery, thrills and a supernatural element that had me guessing, second guessing and turning the pages for more. When I say this book is cree-tastic, I mean that in an absolute good way! This is what I need more of! It satisfied my craving for a great suspenseful read. I want more, more, and more! 

Great job to the author for a great story!
