Writers Inspiring Change feature review: Storm Dreamer
Updated: Mar 18
A murder thriller with a unique twist
Storm Dreamer by June V. Bourgo, the 3rd book in The Crossing Trilogy, is a murder thriller unlike most in that genre. In our modern times, the subject of past lives is becoming less mythology and more fact as people, whether through regressive therapy, or other means, pull back the veil on former lives they have lived. In this case, a young woman is plagued by nightmares her entire life, the image haunts her so much that with the help of a therapist they soon discover a shocking revelation about who she was and how she died in her former life. Madie Hayes, driven by the knowledge that she was murdered, goes after the man who did it, a man who is still alive to this day. Not only a thriller, but one that taunts the reader to consider another paradigm, one where the vestiges of our former lives remain with us, and moreover, opening the forum for a new discussion.
