Blurb: Magical outlaws roam free on the West Coast. The enforcers are stretched thin in their efforts to stem the tide of chaos. The Council headquarters is on the brink of assault, and the lives of the Council members hang in the balance. At the center of it all, is Saba Qureshi, a woman scorned by the draconian measures of the Council. They executed her grandfather and robbed her family of their status and fortune. Now Saba is coming for them, and she’s not alone…
Seeking vengeance with her army of mystical creatures, Saba tries to overrule and wipe out all the nonmagical humans. A band of enforcers work together to stop Saba and her evil plan.
Dreams of Thunder follows several characters throughout the novel. Christian Cura builds the story around each character and gives them an interesting backstory and goal. I especially enjoyed finding out about Dani’s character and her magical past. However, I could not visualise characters as living people and found the story flat. Whilst Dreams of Thunder had everything, I normally enjoy in a fantasy story I felt it was lacking a richness that would have made the pages come to life.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
