I absolutely loved Dreaming Anastasia series, and Anastasia Forever - the third and final instalment - in particular. If you're into folklore, myths, legends, spooky bedtime stories about witches and fantastic creatures that are out there to get you.. well, this is the series for you! Featuring rich Eastern European mythology, culture and history, Anastasia Forever is a breath-taking conclusion to a mervellous, enticing and beautifully-written YA Historical Romance about love, destiny, immortality, dreams, long buried secrets and freedom. A well-researched, absolutely fascinating and dangerously addictive story that I couldn't put down!
As much as I would love to discuss the plot, I can't. This is the third and final novel, and therefore anything I would say would be a spoiler for those of you who haven't yet read it. But let me just tell you that this was one of the best, most exciting and satisfying final books I've had the pleasure of reading. Even more fast-paced and entertaining than the previous two books, even more fun and charming (with all the awesome supporting characters and their often-hilarious interactions), even more heartbreaking and mesmerizing. When I finished reading it, I immediately felt the need to sit down and re-read the entire series. It was that good.
It's a story of three people whose lives are intertwined with each other in the most bizarre, intriguing way. Anne - a sixteen year old girl from Chicago - is connected through bloodline to some tragic and mysterious events from the past. When one day Anne accidentally collides with a handsome blue-eyed boy named Ethan, her whole world gets flipped inside out in a blink of an eye.Read more ›
I think Anne really had a lot to deal with in this book. She has that promise that she made to Baba Yaga, the russian witch. A maybe boyfriend struggling with his new found mortality. A best friend who probably meddles a little too much. A grandmother who is a rusalka (a form of meraid). It's not wonder that she really just wants to have a normal life, even if it's just for a little while. Sadly, we know that isn't going to happen.
Baby Yaga calls on Anne to make good on her promise she made in exchange for her powers. She needs to stop Vincent. In true Lord Voldemort form (I love the point that Vincent technically came first in time) he hides a piece of his soul to become immortal. The problem is not only were, but when did he do it. I loved how intricately woven the story was. It really was about stories in stories. Anne had to understand Vincent to find were he could possibly have hidden his soul. I love that she gets to travel back in time in this story. I think it helps her unravel all the pieces and truly accept who she is and what she needs to do. I love what we get to briefly meet Anastasia when she was alive and well.
I love how Ethan is having a hard time dealing with what has happened to him. But, yet it never stops him from doing everything he can to help Anne. Even if it comes to admitting that she doesn't need his help. I enjoy how Tess is willing accept whatever life throws at her just because she's Anne's best friends and she refuses to sit on the sidelines.
I think Baby Yaga herself is one of my favorite parts of the series.Read more ›
Quick & Dirty: Anne's power comes with great responsibility and it's time for her to accept it.
Opening Sentence: After a certain number of lifetimes, one becomes capable of much if only out of sheer repetition.
Up until now, Anne Michaelson has had a hard time adjusting to all this "magic stuff." For a girl that would rather be making out with her boyfriend, time and time again she finds herself in the middle of events beyond her comprehension and control. This installment sees Anne starting to put the pieces together that has been handed to her in the last two books. She takes the initiative and starts being proactive, instead of reactive. Now that Viktor is loose again, Anne and her friends must find a way to stop him, permanently, before he destroys them all. Secrets uncovered and truths revealed, Anastasia Forever leaves us with a hunger for a brighter future than a fear of the unknown.
Each book in this series shines a light on a new Russian folktale. This one highlights the story of Koschei the Deathless and the lengths he goes to secure immortality. The "stories within stories" theme that reappears time and time again gives the character's hints on how to deal with their current situations and in this case; Viktor and his recovered vitality.
Anne's reluctance to get involved with all things magic has come to an end. Even though she made a deal with Baba Yaga, she still tried to hide her head in the sand. Her character has been acting selfless in regards to doing whatever it takes to save her friends, but it also shows her selfishness as well.Read more ›

this trilogy could have been summed up in one book. The writer repeats things over and over. Its too much high school romance for a book labled as folklore. Does she love Ethan? Read morePublished 6 months ago by Sarah A. Koch
