Jessica Drake is one of the last Dream Walkers. Centuries ago, the Shadow began a campaign to eradicate all Dream Walkers and since that time they have continued their search, but somehow Jessica slipped through the cracks. Now that they know about her, they have been looking for her and sending Reapers into the dream realm to catch her and kill her. They have even been in her family's dreams. She needs to figure out how to stop the reapers and maybe even the Shadow, which means traveling back to Terra Prime and getting help from some old friends.
I would have liked reading the first two books in this series for more details, but I could still read along in this last book with little problem. If nothing else past events are mentioned so the reader doesn't feel like their missing any important pieces. There is much adventure and life and death situations along with surprising answers to previous mysteries. There is much character growth in both Jesse and other characters. Fun new characters are introduced and some of the bad guys are shown in a new and humanistic light. The climax was pretty intense and the conclusion was satisfactory. I enjoyed the book.
When Jessica Drake learned that her DNA didn’t match that of her parents, she had no idea that investigating her true heritage would put her family’s lives in danger, and ultimately force her to cross into another world.
There, in an alternate Earth dominated by individuals with frightening mental powers called Gifts, Jessica learned of a curse within her blood, one so terrifying that all who possessed it were destroyed on sight. For she is a Dreamwalker, and the same dark Gift that allows her to enter the dreams of others will eventually destroy her mind and spread insanity to all around her.
Now the deadly wraiths known as reapers, createdto hunt down the last Dreamwalkers, are starting to target her family. In order to destroy them she must seek out a mysterious shapeshifting tower where the secret of the reapers’ creation—and her own Dreamwalker heritage—can be found. Joining forces once more with the ex-Shadow Isaac and loremaster Sebastian, she travels to the Badlands, a region on the alternate Earth from which no traveler has ever returned.
But her efforts to unlock the secrets of the past will soon ignite the flames of an ancient war, as the deadand the undead gather to fight their final battle against the Dreamwalkers—with Jessica and Isaac on the front lines, and the fate of her entire homeworld at stake.
