They may have won the first battle, but the Apocalypse has just begun.
Five weeks have passed since the battle that left Rome and Columbus in ruins. Sheltered in the hidden city of Caelum, Daniel and Kayla train alongside over one hundred Magus and Protectors, hoping that their unified ranks will be enough to take down their greatest threat yet: Richard, his followers, and his horde of Nightmares. Then a fallen comrade is returned to Caelum with a message carved into his chest and a note referencing the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and Daniel knows their time for training is over.
Finally understanding Richard’s plans for Kayla and the three other Magus born on Halloween, Daniel and the rest of Caelum’s volunteers scout the U.S. in a desperate attempt to stop their enemy before he can unleash his first Horseman. But when massive attacks claim thousands of lives, people all over the world begin to fall ill—including those Daniel and Kayla care about the most.
With the Horseman of Pestilence released, Daniel knows it’s time to step aside and let Kayla take the lead. Only she has the power to rival her father’s. But when Richard’s plot turns out to be darker than they imagined, their fight is met with more death and destruction—and an enemy who might be unbeatable, after all.
Wow! This second book in the Dreamcatcher series, was amazing! Picking up where the first book left off, all bets are off as the war between the Nightmares and the Dreamcatchers have been brought to the real world and the devastation is cataclysmic.
Daniel and the few surviving Dreamcatchers have managed to recruit the magus to help them in defeating Richard but it is not going to be easy because just when they thought they had it all figured out, they soon realise that there is a lot they don’t know about his powers and his plans for Kayla and the others.
Kayla has really improved as a character in leaps and bounds. She has come into her own and is more self-reliant and confident in her abilities and not afraid to make the tough decisions. Character development in this book is astonishing! I think we can see that the author is now in tune with the personages and is able to translate that onto the pages. The pacing is fast and action packed and the action scenes are really well written. The sequence and flow of these scenes are flawless and and the descriptions, intricate.
I enjoyed this a lot! The romance was less pervasive which for me was a plus. If you are looking for and action packed, intriguing storyline with bad-ass Dreamcatchers and an even more bad-ass heroine out to kick some Nightmare demons’ butts, armed to the teeth with wicked knives and magic, read this book!! Awesome, awesome read!!
About The Author:
Adopted at three-days-old by a construction worker and a stay-at-home mom, Vicki Leigh grew up in a small suburb of Akron, Ohio where she learned to read by the age of four and considered being sent to her room for punishment as an opportunity to dive into another book. By the sixth grade, Vicki penned her first, full-length screenplay. If she couldn’t be a writer, Vicki would be a Hunter (think Dean and Sam Winchester) or a Jedi. Her favorite place on earth is Hogwarts (she refuses to believe it doesn’t exist), and her favorite dreams include solving cases alongside Sherlock Holmes.
