I searched for you in the stars tonight.
But I found none
that burned as bright as you.
—Part of a letter from Dev to Molly
With the loss of Terra’s greatest weapon, the war against darkness escalates rapidly, and time is on no one’s side. While Dev struggles to keep his home and hope alive, Molly and Rae find themselves forced to confront a desperately kept secret and quickly learn that a life-altering sacrifice is the asking price to restore order.
Nightmares, betrayal, the fate of two worlds, and one man’s hunger for vengeance lead Molly down a twisted and dark path she fears she might never come back from. Cornered into making a heart-wrenching decision, Molly teeters between deliverance and damnation. Who is worth saving most—a nation or the one she loves?
From Award Winning author, E.J. Mellow, comes the breathtaking conclusion of The Dreamland Series. A story that will take you on a spine-tingling and gripping ride through self-sacrifice, the true power of love, and the importance of friendship.
When you come to the end of a trilogy, you are nervous. Will the author give me the ending I want? Will more people be lost? Will I feel as if I’ve been cheated? I am here to reassure you all that this is not something you need worry about with The Destined. As the final act in what has been a thrilling journey of hope and dreams, the true cost of peace is discovered and many sacrifices are made along the way. Reading this book I felt like my nerves were frayed and then slowly spliced back together by the words which were at times beautiful, heartbreaking, and even so difficult to read I had to put the book down. Truly great works tend to affect us the most, and I can honestly say that The Dreamland series is one of my all time favorites. I’m not fangirling here, this is my pure and undiluted opinion: EJ Mellow is a goddess and I worship at her altar. There are so many passages marked in my copy that I had a hard time choosing which to share, but I’ll leave you with one of the most stirring snippets of those delicious tidbits of letters between Dev and Molly, something to push you over the edge of indecision should you still reside there.
“My midnight, I can’t see clearly anymore. I need you to come home. I need the light of your star to guide me.”
