Vincent E. M. Thorn continues the saga with Promises of the Empire: Dreamscape Voyager Trilogy #2. Following the death of Elyia Asier, Cassidy became the captain of the ship. Cassidy believes she killed the murderer of her predecessor and ordered the immediate destruction of the Scorpion. A monster more fearsome than the dragons emerged after the dragons' nest fell during battle. The Leviathan destroyed everything in its path. Cassidy, Kek, Miria, Lierre, and Nieves travel back to Revehaven. While Miria and Cassidy were in town, the Empress summoned them to the palace. Cassidy was told that she must create a fleet to bring down the Leviathan and left with her crew to assemble the force. Meanwhile, a disaster occurs at the palace. Can Cassidy destroy the monster and who attacked the palace?
Vincent E. M. Thorn made sure there was never a dull moment in this novel. Every character’s history is mixed in without it being intrusive. The villains become much more skilled as Fae influences appear regularly. The mysterious Dreamscape is present in vivid detail and still has a dark foreboding. I found Kek to be my favorite character with his flirtatious humor and his noble dedication to protecting his crewmates from harm. I hated Cassidy for lying to her crew, especially since they trusted her implicitly. The crew interacted as a family, including the minor squabbles one would expect between siblings. An intense battle sets the stage for a sequel that I am eagerly awaiting. Promises of The Empire will keep readers entranced with the action, emotional turmoil, and rising tension between exceptional characters.
