Austin Valley appears as it always has, but Em Fuller knows that appearances aren't what they seem. She knows under the surface, that cracks are starting to form in this seemingly well-manicured society. She's responsible for creating these cracks and for planting a slow dissension among many of the residents of this once happy city. Broken in a way Em never thought possible, she turns into a well-calculated, strategic leader. With the help of the brightest minds in Austin Valley, Em begins building an army whose only purpose is to protect the population of Austin Valley from their president, Victor Vider. Em firmly believes the success of her army is inevitable, that is until a new blow strikes her heart and she questions whether she has the tenacity to go on.
The last book in the Reverends series is a brilliant end to a great story. It is a story of hope, perseverance and the willingness to not give up. The rebels are trying to make the rebellion work but things are not going fast enough. Em has some nerve wracking encounters but her strength and perseverance helps her prevail and move her life forward. Zack's quiet strength and unconditional love shines in this book and I enjoyed how his characters story developed. I love Ren's snarky personality, I think he is becoming my favourite character and look forward to finding out more about him in his own novella, Ren. The amazingly descriptive writing of the author transports you the Reverends world, making you experience their joys, fears and woes right along with the characters and once again the narrator captured the personalities, action and emotions beautifully. What can I say, this book made me cry yet again! After having my heart torn out by Rebels, this book managed to staunch the bleeding with the love, selfless beauty and sentiment in this book. It's a fast paced, captivating read and the great characterization, coupled with an amazing storyline, make this a must read/listen to series. I can not wait to discover more of the Dream Travellers world in The Lucidites. I received this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review.

the great conclusion to the Reverians series. It is a roller coaster ride of twists and turns. Losing Rogue is one of the hardest things Em has ever had to face. Now, she must lead the Rebels on a journey to overthrow President Vider's absolute rule over the Reverians and Austin Valley.

***This audio book was given to me in exchange for an honest review****
I can't believe it's over!
Wow, this was a special series! I absolutely loved it! There were well developed characters, interesting world building and magical system and not one but two heart warming love stories (without there being that sticky love-triangle dynamic).
Like the book preceding this one, this book starts months after the end of the last book. In this missed space of time a lot of the war effort happens. I understand why the author does this (both times), but I couldn't help but feel like I would have rather she covered these periods of time. So the book starts out with Em and Zack well into the war effort and making headway bringing down the government. The whole thing played out in a very beautiful and epic way, but again, I wanted a little more. A little more of the other rebels, a little more of the middlings and their transformation into revolutionaries. Also I would have liked a little more exploration into the time travel.
But, I guess if your biggest complaint about the end of a series is that you'd like there to be another book, the series is pretty darn amazing.

What a spectacular ending to a fantastic series. I don't even know where to start or what to say. Going into it I didn't know what to expect. I went in cold. Totally blind but once I started I couldn't get enough. The characters were solid and relatable. I felt like I really got to know them. The book was steadily paced and full of action. I was never bored. There was constantly new and surprising information revealed. I was always kept on my toes but not to the point where I was so confused that my head was spinning and I didn't know what was going on. There was even some romance and it was totally appropriate and unforced. It wasn't shoved in your face in a way that felt forced or unnatural so that it was just something that would be included for the hell of it.
The narrator of the audiobooks was also amazing. She was on point with all the characters particularly Em. She expressed her personality and emotions with such ingenuity. It was done very well. Over all the the whole series was very well produced. I enjoyed it a lot and can't wait to read more by this author.
I would like to thank the author/narrator/publisher for gifting me a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Awesome series! Imaginative, suspensful, and holds your attention. Characters and storyline throughout series are fabulous.
I was feeling a little down on this series after finishing the second book (Rebels). However, Warriors turned my frown upside down, and just blew me away! The ending of this series was amazing! The final showdown with Vider (and her father) was suspenseful, spectacular, and powerful to say the least. Em’s emotional recovery from losing Rogue was very touching to read about. And also Em and Zack’s interactions…. Oh my! I don’t want to be spoilery, but I will say that it’s been a long time since I’ve cried reading a book, but my eyes were glistening and my lip continuously trembling as I witnessed the heartbreaking moments between Zack and Em. I love Sarah Noffke for writing epilogues for her series! I feel like I can walk away from The Reverians totally at peace, and very grateful for having read this wonderful series.
Would you listen to Warriors again? Why?
I got this book for free for my honest opinion. I would listen to it again because I enjoyed it so much and loved how it ended, even with the twists and turns.
Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Klett – was your favorite?
The President, he was so evil and well narrated. I enjoyed how she brought something different to each character, you can feel the emotions in her voice.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book made me laugh, fear, and love all the characters. I really felt every second of it and may listen to the trilogy again. The adventure was great and it's hard to say good bye to the characters after everything they have gone through and how they have developed over the three books.
Any additional comments?
I truly enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more of this author's work.
Sarah noffke did it again! This book was written so beautiful!!! Watching the relationship with em and zack grow into something I wasn't expecting was beautiful! I love how strong and how much em had grown from the first book. I love the world that's been created in these books and can't wait to read the others.
The author has created a world in which I wish to live! Sarah Noffke creates a gripping story that doesn't release the reader even after the last word is done. No spoilers here just pure unadulterated enjoyment of a world anyone can enjoy. The beauty of the Dream Traveler books is that each series is self contained with only hints of the other novels. If I were a Dream Traveler I would spend my night reading Sarah Noffke novels!
Ok I can finally say it. ROGUE!! How could you? ROGUE!! I had to take several days to mourn this character. He was my favorite character in all of Noffke's series. I have a crush on a dead guy.
This is an epic conclusion! Once again I was blown away by Noffke. I have the biggest book crush on this author. I just haven't met a dream traveler that I didn't love. I mean even the villains I adore. I got to listen to the audible version of this series and loved it. I loved it so much that I bought the Lucidites series in audible too. The narrator did a fantastic job and I found her voice to be a perfect fit.
The rebellion begins and Em is out to save the Reverians whether they want it or not. I think it is a impressive concept. It took me until this book to realize how sheltered they really are. I mean small things that didn't know what they were from history to helicopters. It is a little shocking. I realized they were sheltered but not that bad. It brought a new perspective to everything.
The characters were well done. Em is by far by favorite other than Rogue. She is strong willed, brave, and rash. I just loved her personality and how she can continue and do what needs to be done. Now someone needs to say it but all the crazy and sassy old women crack me up. I was laughing out loud over everything they said. I hope one day to read more about Dee. I really liked her even though she is evil and want to see where she ends up.
