Goodreads 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 Review:

I mainly wanted to read this because it’s a stand alone fantasy, and sometimes I am tired of everything being a trilogy or longer. Not to mention that cover captured my eye right off the bat.

When I started reading this, the prose sucked me in right away. I didn’t know each sentence was going to be so thorough and imaginative. So basically, I loved the writing and was blown away!

Vault of Dreams is told in multiple point of views. Sometimes this is a win for me in fantasy, and sometimes it’s a lose. But, each of the characters here had a unique voice, and I could connect to each one. The brothers were my favorite! The gypsy is a close second!

If you love world building, then you will get it here. I could visualize everything that I was reading. The action was spot on. There is some romance if you like that, but not too heavy. I even shed tears several times in this book!

Overall, I would recommend checking this one out. I feel like if you liked the writing in The Star-touched Queen, then you will definitely like it here! I couldn’t put this one down!

  2. Well you know you got me to buy it before you even finished it, by your excitement. When I first saw it I thought the cover was awesome!! Then I thought it sounded really good too! But your review makes it sound even better!!! It’s just finding time to read it. But it’s up towards the top of my TBR! Lol😂 So many books and not enough time. I wish I was a faster reader like some people. I don’t know how they read so fast and still enjoy it!! 😱🤔😂

  3. You sold me with it being a fantasy and by looking at the cover. And then you made it even better by talking about world building. Definitely adding this to my TBR!
