Once the book moved back into its forward momentum, I found myself sucked into the story. Again, I liked the characters and the conflict, and MaryLu definitely delivered on a happily ever after. I would have liked to see the story end one scene earlier as the final scene seemed tagged on and a bit disjointed. However, I enjoyed the way MaryLu wrapped history into this story, the rich characters, and the overall story line. If you've read her books before, this is another adventure on the high sea and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Overall, I give Forsaken dreams 3.5 out of 5 stars. It's available for pre-order here and will be in bookstores on March 1st.
