The Last Dreamwalker

We rated this book:


After her mother’s death, Layla Hurley’s world is turned upside down. Her whole life, she had been plagued by vivid dreams that her family dismissed as a child’s active imagination, but now she discovers they are so much more. She’s introduced to the family she had never known and her mother’s past that her mother worked so hard to keep hidden. The inheritance of a mysterious island and the introduction to her family’s history gives her the strength to face an unseen enemy that threatens everyone she loves.

This is an atmospheric Gothic tale that delves into the Gullah-Geechee culture of the islands off the coast of South Carolina. The descriptions were vivid and captivating. The characters were well-rounded and endearing. Normally I don’t care for stories that flash back and forth through time, but this one is so well written that I enjoyed every bit of it. The author takes the reader on a historic trip through time as the main character explores her family history. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves historical mysteries and Gothic mysteries. Thank you to Netgalley and Forge books for the opportunity to review this novel.
