Synopsis:

The course of dream travel never did run smooth—at least, not in Liv Silver’s experience. Able to visit other people’s dreams (whether they want her to or not), Liv has solved mysteries, unearthed difficult truths, fought madmen, and escaped life-threatening peril, all from the comfort of her own bed. But Liv’s troubles are just beginning…

A rocky romance, a malicious blogger with a hidden identity, a wedding, and a classmate (or two) dead-set on revenge all await Liv in this action-packed conclusion to the Silver trilogy.


My Review:

This was definitely a great ending to such a fun trilogy! I very much enjoyed listening to these audiobooks. Gier has such a way of pulling me into the story so easily and filling it with such interesting ideas and fun characters that I can’t help but falling in love. The characters are so distinct and have such clear voices (and the narrator does an excellent job of portraying them). This one wrapped things up very nicely, with some more intrigue and suspense to keep me holding onto the edge of my seat until the end. Normally I don’t care for evil characters who are just evil to be evil, but for some reason I hated Arthur Hamilton so much I couldn’t care about how ridiculous his motives were. He just needed to be brought down.

I loved the progression with Henry and Liv’s romance and the side-plot about her “inferiority complex” when it came to carnal knowledge. It added such a great layer to the story that continued from the previous book and had me both yelling at Liv for making such idiotic decisions as well as laughing out loud and also sympathizing fully with her.

Overall, a great finale to this story. It left me happy and content, and only a little bit sad that there isn’t any more books to follow.
