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. 

My Thoughts

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. After falling in loved with Alloway’s Dreamfire novel two years ago, I never imagined receiving an advanced copy from Kit herself. Though I was over the moon, this has in no way influenced my review of the book.

Dream Forever picks up shortly after where Dreamfever left off. Refusing to deal with her broken heart, Josh turns to Feodor. The two are nearly inseparable, especially since Peregrine’s sudden disappearance. But when mysterious tears begin popping up, Josh and Feodor must come to the conclusion that the evil they face will require a much larger team. Meanwhile, trapped in Death, Haley struggles to come to terms with his deceased, yet stubborn brother. With the World, the Dream, Death threatening to converge as one, Josh and her friends must unite to prevent an apocalypse.

Once again, I was completely blown away by Alloway's writing and characters. I absolutely love her storytelling skills. The emotions she evokes in her writing is genuine and heartbreaking at times. Nevertheless, enjoyable and engaging all the same. There is never a dull moment. Despite most of the action taking place at the end, plot twists are equally as engaging and shocking.

From start to finish, Josh has evolved into a powerful young woman. Despite everything that was thrown at her, she alway had the courage to stand back up to approach the situation from another angle. I admire her character, especially everything she has been through. Of all of the characters, Josh has changed the most. Like all heroes, Josh discovered that she cannot be victorious without some help. 

I enjoyed the trio of perspectives. Stating the obvious, it gives the reader a better understanding of the characters and the thoughts/ideas inside their heads. Besides, it was very beneficial when one character acted in secrecy.

As the final book of the series, I was satisfied with the results. I am eternally grateful with the conclusion. I don't think my heart could've taken it otherwise. Overall, I absolutely love this series. The plot is unique and unlike any other young adult novels I have read. The characters never cease to surprise me, not matter how well I think I know them. Kit's writing takes you on a mystical adventure that takes your breath away.
