Blurb (from Goodreads):
Molly finally uncovers the truth about the strange dreams that plagued her sanity for weeks. Now destined to accept a clandestine role, Molly must find the strength and courage buried deep to push forward and succeed.
With the help of Dev, the roguish blue-eyed man of her dreams—whose dark past resurfaces to haunt him—Molly prepares to test the limits of her newly awakened powers and set right a world on the edge of being consumed by nightmares.
But when an unknown shadow stalks her every step and a shocking revelation about her ancestry comes to light, Molly may find herself forced to make a decision that could leave her alone in the dark and standing on the wrong side of a divide.

*A little spoilery if you haven’t read book 1.*
Now this is what I call mind blowing! But that cliffhanger! Omg! I can’t wait to know what’s going to happen next, specially the way things ended. I really, really need the next book right now!
Molly finally knows that Terra Somniorum is real as it can be and she has accepted her role even though it’s a dangerous one. She’s training hard to fulfill her role as the Dreamer. But when a secret comes out she’s torn between two decesions but when a figure from the past resurfaces it makes things far more complicated and leaves Molly with no choice at all.
This book was literally epic! The plot and the action gripped me from the very first page and it continued to do so throughout the book. I didn’t know what to expect from this book but it didn’t dissapoint at all. I was so happy that the love triangle was solved as well. I would’ve been more glad if Molly had actually made that decesion instead of Jared but I’m glad she finally admitted the truth. The romance was between Dev and Molly was mind blowing! The angst build up perfectly and when they finally confronted each other, that moment was literally perfect and hot! The action was more than the first book and I enjoyed that aspect a lot and Molly’s powers were pretty interesting to read.
I really liked Molly more in this book. I think it’s because she finally chose with who she wanted to be with. And I loved how much she cared about Terra and the people there. Dev was as charming as ever! I loved him. The chemistry between these two were undeniable and I loved each and every moment they were together. I also enjoyed the friendly banters between Molly and Rae. The plot twist was a bit shocking, I definitely wasn’t expecting that but the ending totally changed the game, though the epilogue gave me some amount of hope but still I can’t wait to find out how they solve everything.
Overall, The Divide was a great read, I enjoyed each and every moment of it. It was pretty fast paced and the writing was smooth and beautiful. This book was filled with a perfect combination of action, suspense and romance which was pretty awsome. I will be waiting eagerly for the next book in this series!
I’m the author behind the NA Contemporary Fantasy trilogy The Dreamland Series. When I’m not busy moonlighting in the realm of make-believe, I can be found doodling, buried in a book (usually this one), or playing video games.
