Legacy of a Dreamer by Allie Jean

Review by Charlotte Lynn

On her eighteenth birthday Chantel Breelan is forced out of her foster home.   She moves to New York with the hope of starting college and making it on her own.   She has always has terrible nightmares and then confided those nightmares to the shadow in the corner of whatever room she is in.    Little does she know these nightmares tell the future and there are "people" who want her and will stop at nothing to get her.

The concept of this book intrigued me.   The thought of shadows, warriors, and  Oracles caught my attention and held it from the beginning to the end.

The character of Chantel was my favorite.    A strong female character almost always wins me over.   I loved how she embraced, with a lot of questions, the world she was unwillingly thrown into.  A world of murder, lost families, warriors, and dreams.    For any 18 year old that would be a lot to handle.  Then throw in the falling in love with a warrior who has protected and stood watch over you for years and it was no wonder Chantel sometimes felt overwhelmed.

Mathias or Nick, Chantal's warrior, was oh so hot.   The idea that his whole life was about keeping her safe even if it meant putting himself in has way made me weak at the knees.    Even as he spent the nights standing in the corner of whatever foster house Chantal was in he kept his thoughts pure and real only when his feelings were returned did he admit it.  Even then he was true to her and only her.

This is not your typical bad vs good book.  This is far above it.  Allie Jean has left me needing, not just wanting, to know more.   I will be on the lookout for future books by this author and will happily recommend this to anyone who enjoys romance and good vs evil stories.
