I searched for you in the stars tonight. 
But I found none
that burned as bright as you.

—Part of a letter from Dev to Molly

With the loss of Terra’s greatest weapon, the war against darkness escalates rapidly, and time is on no one’s side. While Dev struggles to keep his home and hope alive, Molly and Rae find themselves forced to confront a desperately kept secret and quickly learn that a life-altering sacrifice is the asking price to restore order. 

Nightmares, betrayal, the fate of two worlds, and one man’s hunger for vengeance lead Molly down a twisted and dark path she fears she might never come back from. Cornered into making a heart-wrenching decision, Molly teeters between deliverance and damnation. Who is worth saving most—a nation or the one she loves?




Do you know that feeling you get when you finish a book or a series and there is no more and you feel a void in your life? That is what I am feeling right now. A void in my life that can only be filled with more Dev and Molly and the Dreamland. 

It's like a nasty hangover - book version. 

I don't know what took me so long to read this book. Maybe it was because the book was a little slow through the middle section. Or maybe it was because I knew this was it, this was the end of Dev and Molly's story (for now?) and I wanted to savor every last word. 

My, oh my. There are some heart-wrenching moments in this book where your heart just breaks for everything happening to the characters. And for the choices they have to make. The feels just keep on coming. 

The last third turns into a page turner. I could not hit the button on my kindle fast enough to turn the page. I kept waiting for the big war between the Metus and the people of Terra that was predicted, but it never really happened like what you might be thinking. 

Molly and her being the Dreamer has definitely changed Terra for the good.
