Legacy Of A Dreamer By Allie Jean

Chantal Breelan has spent most of her childhood as a ward of the state. She has a mysterious past and the foster system provided her with no answers. At the age of fifteen, she begins to have horrifying dreams: images of violence and death that haunt her during her waking hours. Anxious and afraid, and with no one else to confide in, she finds comfort in her imaginary friend, a shadow in the shape of a man who stands sentinel over her. She tells him of her dreams and her fear of an unknown future.
On her eighteenth birthday, she’s forced out of her foster home, but the stress and demands drive her to the edge, making her see things. A boy from her nightmares appears in a subway station, sending her life in twists of truth and lies, and darkness surrounds her from all sides. But is it only evil that hides in the shadows, or are the answers to her past lingering just beyond?*********************************************************************(REVIEW)This book blew me away. I have read a lot of books and I mean a lot (LOL).Quite a few on the subject of angels but I have to say this book was right on the money in my opinion. The author definitely did her homework concerning the religious aspect of angels, but presented it in a way that was informative yet exciting,I learned quite a bit during the course of this book. There were some very scary moments in this book( Chantal's dreams)The author was very descriptive at these points and it made these dream sequences so real.I was literally jumping out of my skin at times.I loved Chantal's character the most,she goes through a lot and still manages to be loyal to a fault. This type of character is what more books today need. The message I received from this book was that real evil does exist and the reality of it is frightening most days,Chantal was dealt a crappy life and she chose to still make the best of her situation. Chantal was a tough cookie for sure, and wanted to fight her own battles.I love a strong willed female heroine in my books and she was as awesome as they come. Mathias won my heart right away,he wanted nothing more than to protect Chantal, he wasn't one to broadcast his feelings, but you got the feeling that he loved her none the less.This author has a way with words,She gives you just the right amount of insight into the story and it compels the reader to want to know more and try to figure out the puzzle of the plot. Great writing and a must read for anyone's TBR shelf,If your into lots action, horror, deception and a fight for your life type of read then this is the book for you!! I can't wait for the next book......
