The Dreamer's VengeanceThe Dreamer’s Vengeance by Helen Tyree
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about vengeance. Many years ago, a fleet of humans invaded a magical island of winged people, the Israami. Now, seventy five years later, the Israami are dying from a mysterious disease. Desperate to something about it, young Caexia sets off across the sea. But as danger follows her flight and events unravel, can she save her people?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Caexia determined but kind underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the reluctant Jaisa or the uncertain Graythen.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the crimson sunset or silver moon or the black wings in vibrant colours bold and beautiful, adding more of a sense of 3onder to this world, perfectly written. Or the sense of nature in the jungle and underground with its sights and sounds and smells so vivid its as if you’re actually there.
A wonderful addition to the fantasy genre with magical creatures in a beautiful setting trying to right an ancient wrong steeped in their own lore. I also liked the use of suspense with the story of the daughter with details revealed slowly to keep you reading to find out what happened. I also liked the use of pathetic fallacy with the storms giving a sense of unease with foreboding bad events to the reader. Fast paced action and high stakes in a fantasy world made for a captivating read. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
