I usually know straight away if a book is going to fit with me, and from the first paragraph I knew this one would fit like a glove. Stacy Bennett’s writing enchanted me right from the start with beautiful and lyrical description that let me slip into Cara’s world. The writing is captivating, gorgeous prose, and words that weave – dreamlike – through your imagination.
Cara is the titular dreamwalker, though she doesn’t know that, in fact there’s a lot the sheltered young woman doesn’t know. She finds herself reluctantly escaping the captivity she’s used to and thrust into an unknown world of confusion and fear with mercenaries, Khoury and Archer. The characters are strong and feisty – I especially loved Falin and Gar – and their intensity will draw you in.
Written from a multi-character point of view means you get to know the protagonists intimately and it doesn’t detract from the plot. Each character entwines and merges with ease and keeps you turning the pages.
Bennett’s writing shows masterful storytelling and you’ll be keenly awaiting Dreamwalker’s sequel as you close the book. The imagery is beguiling, the magic bewitching, the story evocative, and this is fantasy at its best!
