Warning: This series is one big to be continued so if that is not your thing, don’t start this one. If you don’t mind, start this series from the beginning and catch up! You won’t be disappointed.
This series has just captivated my interest. I love learning about this culture and this variation of shifters/gods/goddesses. The author has a way of pulling me in and keeping me interested from start to finish. This world is just fascinating and the author does a great job giving amazing visuals in her world building.
Dreams of the Forgotten picks up after the previous story and advances not only the action and plot, but the romance between several sets of characters and reveals more about the nature of Twin Flames and reincarnation. We are introduced to friends from the past and learn more of the motivations of the various factions of Lycans/Magi/etc.
This one was full of action, twist, turns, and love. Oh so much love. I think that is what I enjoy most about this series. While there is plot and action, the love just takes over everything and transforms the story into something more. The reader can really feel the emotions and connections between the characters. But more than that, the reader can feel how everything, every word and action, is motivated by love and that really makes this whole series fantastic.
I am at the point of saturation though. The author keeps introducing new characters, new types of beings, new ideas, and I am starting to be overwhelmed and struggling to remember it all. This is such an epic series, but it is bordering on too much. I am enjoying this immensely, but I worry that I am missing vital information as I struggle to remember all the details, especially since these stories are all part of a larger whole and build on each other.
Tristan is having dreams. Dreams of a life he didn’t live. Tristan can’t understand why he feels such loss when he wakes from these dreams. It doesn’t help he’s big and pregnant. He’s not comfortable and can’t really go about his daily life as he’d choose. When old friends show up it’s not the joyous reunion everyone would have expected. Things don’t really get better from there. Tristan and Ushna realize the children of Tristan’s old Twin Flame, Theo, have been abandoned by Theo’s lover, Daniel. Then some magi show up. But they’re good magi, so that’s… good. Tristan’s baby sister is engaged to the guy who once threw poop at her. Tristan doesn’t handle that well. Tristan isn’t handling much of anything well, and his wolf is stepping forward to handle things for him. Ushna and Nathan are worried for both Tristan’s health and the health of the babies he’s carrying. Tristan also learns at least one non-Lycan group with ill intent has infiltrated his area.
Some warriors appear on the ranch and attempt to kill Randy. This has interesting repercussions. Again, Tristan doesn’t handle it well, but it was a misunderstanding and the warriors are actually pretty good guys. Eventually, Daniel returns and attempts to take Theo’s children from Tristan and Ushna. This actually doesn’t go well for anyone. Tristan decides to take a recuperative nap only to find his dreams and they are not pleasant. He ultimately wakes to find a room full of people who all want an explanation while he’s finally understanding the loss he feels upon waking from the dreams. So of course he also has to deal with a prophecy.
Holy new information, Batman! So much stuff happened. In the kind of way that actually makes me a little nervous. Some of it has to be foreshadowing. New groups were introduced although we don’t know what all they’re doing. Or if they’re working together or against each other. There were mythology lessons for the kids we saw. Some of that must be important at some point. Whereas I don’t feel the previous two books were lacking in world building, I did feel this book had a lot more of it. As this is the third book in the series I was a little stumped by that.
That sure was a huge intuitive leap Tristan made about Randy. Personally, I found that to be a bit too much of a leap. I like the direction the story is taking in regards to Randy, I just didn’t like the leap. That was juxtaposed with Tristan seeing Kent Weatherby’s ring and not knowing where he had recently seen rings of power. There was a shady character referred to as “D,” and a whole box of rings in Daniel’s bedroom. But Tristan can’t figure out where he saw a ring? Okay, I’ve been pregnant and overlooking the obvious is possible, but no one else thought of Daniel? Really? And then the huge intuitive leap about Randy? I just didn’t like it. Of course, “D” may not be Daniel. There may be yet another ring wearer. There are quite a few rings in this book. Tristan wears one himself.
There is a prophecy. It involves three direct descendants of Enkidu and Gilgamesh. The story appears to be pointing strongly to Tristan, Ushna, and Brian being the three descendants. Brian has been dead a long time. That’s a problem. There are more prophecies that have these three guys and their friends doing stuff. Or it could be one big prophecy that’s been broken apart over the centuries. I don’t know. Stuff is happening. I don’t know what it is. Once it happens I’ll happily point back to where it was foreshadowed, though.
I’m enjoying where this story is going. I like complex world building and mysteries I’ll never be able to solve. Making wild predictions about what I think will happen and laughing when I’m wrong is one of the best parts of reading these books. People who’ve read my reviews of the previous books know I picked up this series not knowing mpreg was an aspect of the story. I don’t hate it. It’s probably not going to be a sub-genre I search out, but I don’t hate it.
Lexi Alexander considers some universal themes in this story. I love the idea of a Twin Flame, a predestined soul mate. Even better is her characters’ scrutiny and challenging of this teaching.
I love the mix of gods, magi, shifters and others who form this world. Alexander’s world-building is as complex as it is unique and I was intrigued.
This is the third book in the series and the first I’ve read. For me, it didn’t quite work as a stand-alone. To fully understand Alexander’s complex world, I think readers will need to start from the beginning of the series.
Alexander’s characters are well developed and I enjoyed watching relationships form, strengthen, and in some cases re-form under new circumstances.
For a warrior prince, the pregnant Ushna spends a great deal of time caring for children and pups. I really struggle with m/m books about pregnant men. To be fair, I find most books about any pregnancy tedious and avoid reading about breeders.
Personally, I need a little more action and a little less domesticity in my fantasy stories.
I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.
