Rate this book
Deena endured her first dreamseer vision at the age of six. Now sixteen and having seen how her mother’s abilities were abused by Fane’s rulers, she would do anything to avoid the future that lies ahead when her mother dies and Deena inherits her role.

When she meets Zan, Fane’s last gatekeeper, Deena sees a chance to gain her freedom. But Zan is accompanied by Cal, rebel thorn in the old queen’s side. Deena can’t risk Cal discovering that she was once forced to betray him – but she needs him if she’s ever to escape.

ARC kindly provided by Katy Haye in exchange for an honest review.


'The Last Dreamseer' was my second novel - after reading Rising Tides - by Katy Haye, and one which pretty much met all of my expectations. I'd highly recommend reading this novel AFTER reading 'The Last Gatekeeper'. (I accidentally read 'The Last Dreamseer' BEFORE 'The Last Gatekeeper'. Both novels can be read as standalones, however, as a reader, I got a better and more satisfying reading experience having read both.
1. I felt like the blurb didn't do the novel justice. I was SOO bored and uninterested in the novel after reading the blurb. It was just dry and didn't accurately capture all the FASCINATING aspects of the novel. It just could have been worded differently. In a way that would hook the potential reader and keep them gripped. This blurb just didn't do that.
2. The cover. Just. The cover. It NEEDS a makeover. Please, please, please. It also didn't accurately capture the awesomeness of the novel.
3. The writing itself was good... It just needed a second set of professional, editorial eyes. One with great experience. Some sentences could use rewording because they made my eyes glaze over sometimes. Others were well written and perfectly executed. I would often swing between gripped and bored. There were also times when the author just bordered on telling rather than showing. It just needs some good editorial work on it.
4. Deena's story just didn't hook me as much as the first novel in the series did. I didn't especially feel connected to her as a character and sometimes it was hard for me to align to her perspective and outlook on the world. I could understand her bitterness but I just couldn't emotionally CONNECT.
5. Being unable to fully connect with the protagonist, Deena, made the novel just a little bit worse. I felt like the plot took the characters everywhere in a bit of a rush with not strong enough reasons.
6. The world-building is definitely to be praised. I loved the depth and knowledge with which the author wrote her novel. I could feel that the author knew her world and the many numerous characteristics/aspects of it.
7. The novel had atmospheric presence. It was deep and dark and drumming. Every time I opened the book I could feel the heaviness of living in a dystopian world such as Fane.
Congratulations to Katy Haye on publishing a solid four star sequel in 'The Chronicles of Fane'!

Rating Plan
1 star : Strongly did not like the book, writing and plot was bad. Idea of the book was against my liking.
2 star : Didn't like it, didn't find it interesting or gripping. Seemed to drag on to me.
3 star : An average book. Wasn't bad or good. Everything else was well done. Original idea.
4 star : Like a 3 star but has potential to it as a series or the book grew on me as it progressed and certain scenes captured me. I Enjoyed it and read it in one sitting.
5 star : I LOVED IT! I stayed up late until 3 am. Author is a genius, characters, plot, idea, development, EVERYTHING was EXCELLENT. Nothing else can possibly be said except that its 5 STAR!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Last Dreemseer, by Katy Haye. This is a fabulous fantasy from an author who shows through her words that she has an amazing imagination. It’s well written, well thought out, fast paced and an absolute joy to read. This is the second book in The Chronicles of Fane, yet Katy Haye has written it so well, it could be read in isolation. The author’s imagination is mindblowing. Her ability to bring fantasy to real life and still manage to weave in a strong plotline with twists and turns is a true work of art.

From page one, I fell in love with the strong heroine Deena. I stepped into her shoes, felt her plight, and was rooting for her all the way to the end. I am a huge fan of fantasy and Deena took me on a dreamseer’s journey that was simply amazing. What’s not to like? Katy Haye’s dialogue is excellent, and her syntax is beautiful. l kept turning the pages until there were none left. The characters are likeable, well developed and true to life. All in all, a very intriguing storyline that kept me reading into the early hours of the morning. In a nutshell: Simply Brilliant!

A delightful sequel to the Last Gatekeeper. This book could be a stand alone title .. But it makes more sense if you've read the first book.

The author keeps the storyline moving quickly without a lot of details to bog it down. But with enough twists and turns to make it interesting..
