Vault of Dreams by Luke Taylor

Vault of Dreams

Goodread Summary:

Albanland. Emerald hills and ice blue lochs, bordered by Nørds raiders and the haughty monarchs of South Angle, each dynasty eager to seize lands weakened by a civil war in which a usurper has risen to seize the cloven throne.
Morgance, Faer Princess of the Night.
And by her side, the fearsome Ultan Skölhammer, sworn Guardian of the Crown.
But Rhoswen, rightful heir to the throne, princess in exile, leads a final uprising from the depths of the forest, an uprising that twists together the lives of the most unlikely companions.
A notorious thief accused of a crime she did not commit.
A baird apprentice searching for the meaning of life.
A pair of brothers who can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
And a gypsy bound to the ancient artifact known only as the Vault of Dreams.

My thoughts:

I did get this book for free for review from the author. This is not my favorite writing style. I do enjoy that it is a stand alone fantasy novel, because those seem very few and far between. I’m in love with series because you get so much more to the story, but I get tired of it as well. Im ready to move on and read something else or I’m tired of waiting for the sequel. Whatever. I like stand alones. I do love the cover of the book, and it is definitely one that would catch my eye at the store. I also like the title I would have picked it up for sure. I had a hard time getting into the story. I am usually someone that since I have so many books (over 2,000 physical books at my house, ot counting e-books) I don’t give books very long before I scrap it and move along, and this one does take a while to get used to the prose and a while to get into the story.

Loot Crate is looking out for fans who are interested in coming up with a Dream Crate for their subscription box. According to Loot Crate “we offer up a unique monthly subscription box of awesome for every fandom, enthusiast group and style.” I love me some subscription boxes.  I have had my eye on Loot Crate for some time, but haven’t pulled the trigger and purchased a subscription yet. Here are some of the items that would be in my Dream Crate, Disnerd style.

Lady Villain Bookmarks

I would like it to include all of the Alice in Wonderland Tsum Tsums, awesome Disney Villain bookmark magnets from WonderDame Bookmarks, a Tinkerbell Pop Tee, an entire collection of Disney villain Mystery Minis, and all of the new Beauty and the Beast Funko Pops.

Ok so it is a lot more than the regular Loot Crate, but a girl can dream right?

PPS: I did not get anything for this post.  I wish I had gotten a free crate or subscription, but I just did this for fun, because they asked me.
