"Very well written and great fantasy romance." (Geeky Girl Reviews)
"A wonderfully developed fantasy world provides the backdrop for a story that has all the elements beloved by fantasy readers." (Loves Reading)
HARVEST OF DREAMS is Book 3 in the Gods' Dream Trilogy. I loved all three in the audio version with Noah Michael Levine as the narrator. Between Ms Holland's amazingly descriptive writing and Mr. Levine's talent, this entire series is a winner! Highly recommend!!
This final installment takes everything from the first two books and brings it all crashing together and leaves you breathless. There is more love, more epic battles and even more depth into our villainess. It saddens me that this series has come to an end. I have never read such beautiful books that combine so many beliefs, worlds, and characters and does so seamlessly. You are never left confused because Debra does such a wonderfully clear job switching between worlds & characters. It has been such a grand adventure and the characters left such an impression on me. These stories have all been magical and filled with imagery so colorful and artistic that you can imagine these places clearly and wish you could become part of their world!
Debra has created an original, magnificent fantasy world with lavender skies, two moons, gods, goddesses, romance, suspense, and both good and evil. In HARVEST OF DREAMS, we get to meet Sadie, our endearing heroine in this book, who had made a brief appearance in the preceding book, and are treated to seeing Thaddis/Theron, our hero, in a new light. We welcome back Princess Daria and Khan and Prince Indaran and Jasmine who all also figure prominently in this conclusive episode - it was so good to see them all together. LOL! I also enjoyed the return of the monkey bats and Jasmine's animal companion.
The two preceding books in this trilogy come to mind right away.
Debra's imaginative world also reminds me of that of Julie Kagawa's world in her Iron Fey series.
Noah Michael Levine continues as the narrator. As he has with each installment, he does an excellent job of bringing the characters to life, while differentiating between them and capturing their fears, angst and caring in his voice. Under his care, the story flows smoothly keeping listeners spellbound. I was not acquainted with his work before I started this series, but I have thoroughly enjoyed his narration and will definitely look for other works that he has narrated in the future.
Yes! For instance, In the scene where Yadarius was released from his chains, I was alternately holding my breath until I thought my lungs would burst as the danger and suspense ceaselessly built in crescendo and then yelling “Yes! Yes! Yes!” in jubilation as Yadarius' freedom culminated.
Another example was the communal Che-da-wah .wedding ceremony that embraced both of our favorite couples from the preceding books and an endearing Che-da-wah couple who had also graced a previous book. This scene combined so many wonderful elements: tradition, ceremony, togetherness, love... and it left me with a huge smile that still elicits the warm fuzzies whenever I think about it.
There are interconnected characters and a continuing thread, which I believe is best appreciated by enjoying the series in order. If I had not listened to the series in order, I don't think I would have formed the deep attraction to the characters and storyline that I did, and, while I would have still enjoyed the tale, I don't believe I would have been as mesmerized as I was. AND I was utterly spellbound...
Words cannot begin to express how incredible this series is! I will say that there's not been a day since I finished this trilogy that I haven't fondly remembered it. Sometime I'd like to go back and listen to it all over again. Debra's writing paired with Noah Michael's voice ensured my complete immersion in the story. I highly recommend HARVEST OF DREAMS, indeed this whole series, to anyone who enjoys exciting sci-fi fantasies. If you're looking for a series with a rich storyline, nail-biting suspense, well-drawn characters who will steal your heart and incredible drama and adventure in imaginative worlds, then look no further than The Gods' Dream Trilogy by Debra Holland.
The final installment in the God's Dream trilogy! All the heroes and heroines, villains… and those between villain and hero. Princess Daria, Indaran, Jasmine, Khan, Sadie and more are up against pure evil and the fight of their lives, and the fight of their people.
You should already have read/listened to "Sower of Dreams" and "Reaper of Dreams". Otherwise, the nuances of the characters and their reasoning and what weighs on them is missing.
There's a lot of action this time around, even more than the previous two books. Its fast and furious. And even more nail biting as it's really do or die for our compatriots and warriors. But there's also time for developing relationships, skills, knowledge from without and within. Because they will all need all of the strengths they know and the ones they'll learn on this journey. And they must overcome all their weaknesses to have even the slightest chance of succeeding.
Well written of course by established author, Debra Holland. A great listen on audible thanks to Noah Levine's command of voices and timing.
Meet Sadie and Thadeus and renew your acquaintance with Princess Daria and Khan, and Prince Indarin and Jasmine. Excitement and nail biting suspense. Wars among evil gods and goddesses and beneficent gods and goddesses and their subjects. A tale of fantasy and epic proportions. Ultimately, the triumph of good over evil, liberation and restoration of a deposed and imprisoned sea god with the help of the denizens of the ocean and his loyal subjects of Seagem, along with the help of their other world friends.
Noah Michael narrator, gave it his best shot. He captured to perfection, the excitement, the dread, suspense and romance in this journey. I loved his narration, his voice changes for the many characters was stupendous and made the book's adventures come alive.
I absolutely recommend this gripping and imaginative series and this final book to all who would delve into their minds and envisage a world of lavender skies, two moons, gods and goddesses, both good and evil, a world where anything can occur.
Debra Holland is a master story-teller. The most intriguing, fantastic story ever. Harvest of Dreams is a fitting end to the Gods' Dream Trilogy. Your imagination is the only boundary. BRAVO!
Oh yes, this Audio book is awesome. This is my 3rd Audio book I ever read, was really impressed by The Narrator who is not boring, and who brings the characters of Debra Holland to life, and describes the places in the book as if you were there.
