Overview

Sixteen-year-old Trinity Monsour wants nothing more than to live a normal life. But that isn’t as easy as it seems. Trinity is different. She is special. She sees visions, and for those she’s seen, it’s already too late.

 

Trinity arrives on her aunt’s doorstep in New Orleans with virtually no knowledge of her mysterious heritage. She begins settling into life at a new school and even starts making friends. But all too quickly her dreams accelerate; twisted, terrifying visions of a girl locked in a dark room. And when the head cheerleader, Jessica, goes missing, Trinity knows she has no choice but to step forward with what she’s seen.

 

But people believe that Trinity has information about Jessica’s disappearance not because of a dream, but because she is involved. She is kind-of dating Jessica’s ex-boyfriend, Chase, and Jessica did pull a nasty prank on Trinity. Revenge seems like the likeliest scenario.

 

Nothing prepares Trinity for the dark odyssey that ensues while searching for Jessica, including the surprising romance she finds with Chase, or the shocking truths she learns, not just about the girl who has gone missing, but the past that has been hidden from her.

    Great Book

    I loved the book. Once I started reading it, I had a hard time putting it down. Great storyline about the girl and her family line. Along with a boy who loves her dearly.

    Fantastic Book!

    Shattered Dreams drove me crazy. I do believe that that was Ellie James¿ intentions, and she succeeded in this twisted storyline. I feel like I just got off the for insane people roller coaster ride. I don't know if I love this book or need a bottle of Xanax. I guess I will go with love because it did make me feel every one of my emotions. Even though most were frustrating. By the time I finished Shattered Dreams and understood the whole story, I can say yes I like this book. But boy, in the middle of reading this story I felt like locking the main character up and throwing away the key. So I have to hand it to Ellie James, I feel like I know how Trinity was feeling and what James was wanting me to understand about Trinity in this storyline and she definitely achieved it with me.

    Trinity is sixteen, and her grandmother has died, so she goes to live with her aunt Sara in New Orleans. This is her first time going to public high school as her grandmother home schooled Trinity in order to protect her from people finding out about her visions. It¿s not until she goes to live with her aunt that she starts to learn who her mom and dad were, and that she inherited her mom's gift of vision. When Jessica goes missing, she¿s not sure if she should help. She¿s been told to hide her gift. Chase is the gorgeous blue eyed quarterback that she¿s fallen for, but she keeps pushing him away. She feels like once he finds out about her visions, she will become a freak to him and break her heart. Trinity drove me crazy with hot and cold feelings for Chase, and I had a hard time understanding her reasoning when Chase already knew a little about her visions. I think their relationship could have been done better. Tell you the truth, I like Dylan¿s character a lot more than Chase I would have liked to seen Trinity end up with Dylan, who already knew everything and his character had more strength to me even if he didn¿t come into the story until halfway through.

    I would recommend Shattered Dreams as a must read. I will say you need to definitely put yourself in Trinity¿s place to understand how she¿s been raised and where she¿s coming from. Which I believe Ellie James accomplished this for me. I know I felt as crazy as Trinity.

    Shattered Dreams

    Trinity is special. She dreams true things, things that are or will be happening...and most of the time they are not good. Trinity comes to live with her aunt in New Orleans after the death of her grandmother. After a foolish prank is pulled on her by Jessica, the mean but popular girl at school, Jessica turns up missing. Trinity has "seen" what is going on, but most won't believe her and the ones that do think Trinity had something to do with it. Trinity has to find a way to save Jessica before it's too late, but there is a deeper plot at work against her that she doesn't see.

    Trinity is a great character. Haunted by her past and her present she is looking for answers to so many questions. The urgent one is how she can help Jessica without making it seem even more like she was involved in the disappearance. She is also trying to learn more about her family and the mysterious "gift" she has of seeing things.

    Trinity is helped by by her new friend, Chase. Chase used to be Jessica's boyfriend and is also being investigated as a potential part of her disappearance. He has connections and tries to help Trinity find answers to her many questions.

    A great story that draws deep on the history of New Orleans, from its historical cemetaries to the wreckage left by Hurricane Katrina. We follow Trinity as she learns about the city of her past and what to expect from her future.

    4/5

    Really good so far!

    I found this book by reading Haunted Destiny that was a short story by this same author. In the back, there was a preview for this book and I read it, and fell in love with it! It sounds so good! I always read fictional books like these, so I know I'm gonna love this one!!

    So this review isn't going to be one of the nicest I've written

    So this review isn't going to be one of the nicest I've written and it's one of those books I have mixed feelings about. 

    Shattered Dreams is about a girl named Trinity who dreams about a girl in danger, but the twist is she doesn't know if it's herself or another girl.  As the story unravels, secrets are revealed and her life is changed forever. 

    The characters had a lot to be desired in this book.  I can't really think of any character that stood out to me.  I know Trinity should have been the one I loved, and I did like her for the most part, but she did some really stupid, immature things that really turned me off her.  I can handle a lot of immature things, but not when those stupid things can put your life in danger - not when it isn't self-sacrificing. To her credit though, she does use her gift to try and find Jessica before it's too late.  Even though Jessica had been nasty to her beforehand.

    Chase was all right.  He was just the normal-type mc male who was there for the heroine for the most part.  He seemed more relatable to me then any of the others.  I understood him more. 

    And I positively loathed Jessica.  She acted like a psycho ex-girlfriend who couldn't let go of the guy who dropped her because he discovered he liked another girl.  Sorry, honey, but he didn't cheat on you with Trinity, he did the right thing and dumped you first.  Not that he wanted to be with you anyway.  If I recollect the story correctly, you emotionally blackmailed him into staying with you when he had tried to dump you earlier and that was BEFORE he met Trinity.

    Anyway, let's just say she really got on my nerves.  She had played these stupid disappearing games in the past, which is part of the reason why nobody thought much of it when she first disappeared - because she had done it all before.  Done it before as part of a ploy to get back at people. That's probably a spoiler. I'm usually very careful not to go into what may possibly be a spoiler, but in this case I don't really care.  The sad thing is where I would have felt sorry for any other person in her position, I couldn't.  I just couldn't connect to her as a victim - and I hated that.

    The only thing that saved this book for me and the reason I would go on to read the next is because of the story line.  I like reading paranormal books - especially when it involves clairvoyance.  I've always had thing for books that include it.  Even though the book felt disjointed, I have to admit I still liked the way it was done.  And I liked the idea of a game and matching wits with the bad guy.

    I don't know who I'd recommend this book to - I guess it would be to anyone who likes paranormal books, because, well, when it comes right down to it, this is only my opinion.

    Disjointed plot, decent characters

    This book jumped right into the story with Trinity and her friends (some of whom are not so friendly) visiting a haunted house in New Orleans. It was a promising beginning; very creepy with a lot of interesting tension between the characters. However, the novel proved to be disappointing.

    Trinity can see bits of the future in dreams and visions. Sometimes she mistakes these visions for reality and runs around screaming at men wielding knives and cats and strange women who knew her mother. About halfway through the book, I began to feel like the whole story was a dream sequence. By the end, I could barely make sense out of the plot and large sections blurred in my mind because they were so confusing.

    The main characters were interesting enough, but they could have used a little more depth. There were references to things in Trinity's past that were never fully explained, even though it seemed like the author was building up to it. The romance was sweet, though, especially the way it blossomed while playing Halo. I thought that was a rather original setting for a kissing scene.

    So, in the end, this book was a mixed bag for me. The things I liked were slightly outnumbered by the things I didn't like. I wouldn't really recommend it unless you like weird, creepy visions and inexplicable running.
