Synopsis:

As the veil to the Dream becomes dangerously thin, Josh must stop it from tearing to save the world, in the conclusion to The Dream Walker Trilogy.

Trying to control her powers as the True Dream Walker is hard enough with Feodor as her instructor. But trying to learn her strengths with a broken heart makes it nearly impossible for Josh. When mysterious tears in the veil separating the Dream from the waking world begin to appear, and with Peregrine still on the run and Haley trapped in Death, Josh finds herself truly in over her head. With the World threatening to crumble around her, Josh must figure out who she really is and what she wants in time to save it, herself, and everyone she loves.

You won’t be disappointed in this exciting conclusion to Kit Alloway’s The Dream Walker Trilogy.

Quick & Dirty: A heartwarming conclusion to this trilogy that makes you think about friendship, life, death and dreams.

Opening Sentence: A corpse lay slumped on the floor in the center of the coffee shop, right in front of the holiday mug display.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

The final book in the Dreamwalker trilogy wonderfully wraps up this series that will make you think about life, death and the soul in a new light. You absolutely must read the previous two books in this series whether through the duology paperback Dreamworld or through the ebooks Dreamfire and Dreamfever in order to fully understand what the characters of this novel are going through to see their ending. I was a little worried about how this book would end but I was wonderfully surprised by how everything was pulled off.

Joshlyn has gone through a lot in the last two books. As the True Dream Walker, she has dealt with a lot of emotional issues that this title has given her. Josh doesn’t believe that she is the true dream walker but she has been trying to work on her dream walker powers. She has built up an unlikely truce with Feodor in order to help get Haley back from Death and to fight her completely deranged grandfather. In the meantime, Josh and Will decide to try again at their relationship and work harder to keep it together.

Josh’s grandfather hasn’t been seen since the events of the last novel. Josh and her friends and family have all been working separately in order to try and figure out how to make sure the dream world, Death and the waking world do not bleed together. But before too long, the bleed begins to happen and the world starts to get torn apart. The battle ahead is long, arduous and full of twists and turns.

The last novel left most of the main characters broken and this one sees them slowly try to piece themselves back together. I was happy to see that Josh and Will tried to talk out their issues instead of just running screaming from the room. I was hoping for a little bit more with Mirren while I was completely happy about the transformation of Haley throughout the entire series.

Dream Forever was a dark novel. There are many dark issues and even some graphic type dreams. I honestly didn’t have an issue with any of this but since this is a young adult novel I figured I would include this information. In the midst of all that darkness, I did feel a bit uplifted at the end of the novel.

Overall, this series was an interesting one for me to read. I really liked the idea of walking in dreams to help save the dreamers from terrible dreams but also from potentially unbalancing the world from the dreams bleeding over. I highly recommend this series for readers who like paranormal type stories.

Notable Scene:

“You think I’m a monster,” she said, and her voice was tight.

“No, I don’t,” Will told her. He took her hand, trying to distract her from the freak in front of them, but she tugged it away. “I’m just afraid that you’re losing who you are because of him.”

“But this isn’t who I am.” Josh lifted Feodor’s cape and used it to cover his half of the face, leaving only hers visible. “This doesn’t even look like me.”

The disparity was even more obvious now that she and Will’s dream version of her were side by side. The real Josh was wiry and hard, muscles constantly coiled in readiness, pale from too many house spent in the Dream, her eyes perpetually narrowed. The dream-Josh was beautiful—relaxed, enthusiastic, comfortable in her own skin.

“That’s how I see you,” Will said. “When you’re at your best, that’s how I see you.”
