Overview

The Reverie - a magically constructed world accessible only through a few ancient doorways. Sasha's new home backs onto a forest that houses just one such portal. The young woman's dreams have been strange and mysterious of late, and in the waking hours she finds herself travelling paths walked while sleeping - paths that lead her to the old stone doorway. On the other side she is immersed in a world of druids and magic and fantastical creatures. The stoic and handsome Desmond serves as her guide to this mystical place.

But there is a darker side to the Reverie. The druid clans exist in this simple world, vying to increase their holdings and power. Some of the clans are more devious than others, using steel, sorcery, and subterfuge to achieve their aims. Sasha finds her entrancing adventure suddenly halted when she stumbles into the conflicts that rage between clans. Even Desmond, a powerful druid, can't protect her when tensions break and war washes over the Reverie.

Sasha walks a path fraught with danger - both from the people who inhabit the strange world, and from the harsh winter elements that surround her. Armed with only her resolve and a somewhat rudimentary understanding of magic, Sasha is forced to fight for her survival, only to realize that she may have a much larger role to play in the events around her.

Writing was effective, but there were too many pov shifts for me to enjoy it. I made it 150 pages in and realized I was just constantly irritated at the jumping around. A shame, bc I liked the authors tone and desccriptions.

I truly enjoyed this book & I'm looking forward to the coming books in this series. Awesome for a free read. Jonathan's artistic vision makes this a wonderful fantasy story with unique twists on magic & mythical creatures. The story keeps your attention throughout. Entertaining characters that are relatable & enjoyable. Each chapter is written from the perspective of one of the multiple main characters, allowing the reader to experience each individual's journey & how they are all tied together. A must read for all who enjoy fairytale/fantasy genres.

I am fairly new to this genre of novels but was thoroughly pleased with this series. The writer has created interesting characters with an enthralling plot that just pulls you in from the start. Wish there were more books in the series or possibly a spin-off in the future!

Really enjoyed this book, and I have just purchased book 2.  Don,t let the style of writtening detoure you, you will go from one characture,s story to the next and back again, slowly but surely drawing you into each one life,, all coming together at the end. If you enoy a saga with Druids, witches, magic,mystic portals, and the fight against good vs evil, then this is your book. BTW..... not for kids.... Evil is truley cruel and graphic at times. The Adult version of a Lord of the Rings, or Sword of Shanara..... I would say....
