Cover_StolenDreamsEdward 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 review:

Cassie Scot became one of my favorite female leads I have read to date. I read all four books in a row and despite the fact that it was the end……I really like the final book. Cassie grows exponentially in this book as a woman and a character. I definitely recommend that you start with the first book and read right through to this one. It’s a fantastic paranormal detective series and I would definitely recommend this to all ages. It’s chock full of fun, suspense and humor. Cassie is a chick I could definitely hang with for hours. 🙂


 

Now enjoy an excerpt:

I escaped from Alexander DuPris the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, only to be told by my family that I

was being melodramatic. And this right on the heels of informing me that we had a hostage in the guest

bedroom.

A hostage, you say? Surely now I’m being melodramatic! But no, Juliana used her healing gift to knock

Amanda Lee unconscious, then shoved her in a supply closet until Dad picked her up from school, at

which point the two of them moved the body into the backseat of his car.

“Are you crazy?” I asked. I looked from face to face, trying to find a trace of sanity, but they were all

doing their normal after-dinner things exactly as if nothing were wrong. Mom, hugely pregnant with

twins, crocheted an afghan, Nicolas was out with Madison, Juliana looked entirely too pleased with

herself, Isaac played a video game, Elena hid behind a book, and Adam and Christina played in their

rooms. It could have been any normal Tuesday evening, except for the hostage upstairs.

“Cassandra,” my father said, “you haven’t been around. You don’t understand.”

Of course I didn’t understand. No one had told me that things were getting this bad. It was as if I’d been

on the moon for the past two months instead of in Pennsylvania, calling home three times a week. But

oh, everything is fine at home. Just fine. Don’t worry about us. How are you doing? When will you be

home?

 

AuthorPic_StolenDreamsChristine 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. Speculative

fiction is fun, magical, and imaginative but great speculative fiction is about real people defining

themselves through extraordinary situations. Christine writes primarily about people and relationships,

and it is in this way that she strives to make science fiction and fantasy meaningful for everyone.

At the age of 16, Christine was diagnosed with Stargardt’s Disease, a condition that effects the retina

and causes a loss of central vision. She is now legally blind, but has not let this slow her down or get in

the way of her dreams.

In addition to writing, Christine teaches workshops on writing at Savvy Authors. She also does some

freelance editing work.

Christine currently lives in the Kansas City area with her husband, Austin, who has been her biggest fan

and the key to her success. They have two beautiful children.
