Let me see.... Can I write this without offending anyone?? ...Yeah.. No... I can't. Sorry. This series just sucked. The plot didn't go anywhere in particular, the characters were dull, the scenery was repetative.. & there were too many itallics. I mean, sure, when explaining a new place or in this case a new.. species, I guess you'd call it, but having the word "Vassiz" EVERY TIME it's written is a bit much.

This review is just my opinion. I belong to no book club or organization. I hold no a

Unlike the others I was a bit disappointed. I felt the ending was a bit of a cop out. I loved every book in the series and felt that this book did not end the way I wished it would in almost any way. I was actually mad that half the ebook was her book Chosen which I had already read. I thought the book was going to be long but it ended and I was like What? She left so many loose ends that I felt a few more chapters to close other characters story lines would have helped.

Well I was rather disappointed. It felt like she was ready to move on to another story so she just ended it abruptly. In addition 35% of of the book is actually a sample of the Crystal Seekers! I personally do not need or want a sample added to a book I purchase. I really liked the other books she has written but this one was rather lacking. Im not a writer so I do not know exactly how to put it. The other books were exciting and seemed like always something new and unknown. I will still read he ...more

the ending was annoyingly disappointing and left too much either unexplained or unresolved. it feels rushed then abandoned. I really wish I had read the reviews for this book before starting the series....I was very invested only to be disappointed .....and please use spelling and grammar check before publishing. its very hard to read when every third sentence has an extra word

I felt that this book was a bit too drawn out in the wrong parts. I skipped some paragraphs because I didn't care for ALL the details. I still enjoyed the book, and was anxious to finish it, but was disappointed by the ending. I just wanted a little more closure and more answers.

the dark realm series are......quiet difficult to rate

the story has come a long way from its first book "shattered" which was more a copy of Twilight than a book with its own plot .the main characters Laura and Logan were like some twisted shadows of Edward and Bella.but the second one was a huge improvement and the series kept getting better and better with every next book.the characters turned more defined and fact Laura turned out to be much better than Bella....she's strong an

I tend to agree with the other reviews on this book as the last three were definitely better than this final novel in the series. Initially it was action packed but towards the end the story did feel rushed and incomplete. As readers we do become invested in the characters and we got to know Laura's personality and thought processes. I do not want to give away too much about this book as some readers may still want to find out the ending regardless of the reviews.

I'm little disappointed in a trilogy that is not really a trilogy. So when I had to go buy part 2 of book 3 of the "trilogy" I was a little ticked. But I had already vested several hours and wanted to know how the story played out.

I have to say that I was actually very pleased with this one. The writing was more mature and detailed, and I actually had a vested interest in what was going on. The ending was abrupt and I would have wanted to see a little more intimacy between the characters (no I

In the epic conclusion to the Dream Realms Trilogy, Laura comes face to face with the elders for the first time. With Logan and the angels at her side, she will try to do that which no one has done: destroy the elders, and break their terrible reign of power.

But it will not be easy. The elders have held on to their posts since the first memories of the Vassiz. Will prophecy be enough to guide Laura against them?

If she succeeds, the world as she knows it will change forever. But if she does not

This book was really good till the end. Beware:there are spoilers in this review. Ok so there are so many questions left unanswered! What happened to everyone? Madison and Alexander? Gray? The other angles that assisted the Vassiz? And I thought that they couldn't live with only one star? But since Logan of Laura's mow she only has one? Confuzzlement. But I really did like this book. Sophia sharp is a really good writer and has some really good stories in that noggin of hers. I'm really ...more

i loved the series, but i hated how it ended:( im very disappointed and kind of wish i never started this series so i wouldnt feel like i got so ripped off by this author. the ending left me with many unanswered questions that were constantly being brought up throughout the series and then some new questions. The ending was rushed and anticlimactic for such a huge build up. Im saying it was "Okay" since it did start off well and was pretty interesting for most of the book. the ending just pissed ...more

Well, there was certainly more action in this book. At times I did find boring, especially in the part where Laura is battling the elder. I like the part of the happy ending where love triumphs overall. I gotta say I enjoyed this series, the whole vampire thing but with a dream world twist. I'm gonna say it's an interesting concept.

Was a wonderful and interesting story I couldn't put it down. I read the last book in one day. That is really saying a lot because I am a slow reader. I have deslexia and have a hard time reading. It is really hard to get a 5 sta from me. This is an excellent ya book and I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

This book went on and on and on and on...I felt like I just wanted to read ahead to the end. Some of the explanation of the Torrial and how things came to be were very excessive. I did like the story but things became repetitive.

Loved the series, hated the ending. There were to many questions left unanswered for me. Like what happened to the other characters in the story. I can handle a story not ending how I would like but I can't stand not knowing what happens to the other charcters that have been throughout a series.

I was very disappointed in a lot of aspects of this book. The storyline was great, but there were several things that I didn't care for and I think could've been handled in a better way. Overall I'm glad I read the series, just thought the ending wouldn't be so anti-climactic.

Meh... When I first got hooked on this series I was really interested in how it would end; I think too much time passed and the story was just okay... I was disappointed.

I didn't think it was as bad as the reviews I had read. I did think it ended pretty abruptly. I enjoyed the story until the last chapter. I feel like I haven't finished the book yet...but I did.
