Stolen Dreams by Christine Amsden

Stolen Dreams (Cassie Scot #4)Book Description:
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.

My Thoughts:
I was absolutely looking forward to this book.  It is the last in the Cassie Scot series.  I can't tell a lot about this book without giving away some spoilers.  The Blackwood and the Scot families have been feuding and it is coming to a head.  There are tears, fights, and a lot of issues to be worked through before the truth can come through.
I have really enjoyed Cassie throughout this series.  She is a strong character and that really shined in this book.  The author did a good job of answering the big questions and working through issues with the characters.  She also left it where there could be some 'spin off' books. :) Evan really came through in this book like I'd so wanted him to.  There were a couple things that I thought were abrupt but overall the story was great.  Once I started this book, I just couldn't put it down.
This was a 5/5 for me.  Great ending to an awesome series.  I recommend reading them in order though so you get the full effect of the characters!

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
