Summary from Goodreads:
 Every choice matters…
After a perilous journey, Ramsey Wilder has nearly reached the rebellion. Led by Joseph, King Vortigern’s son and former heir, the rebellion holds the promise of change for the Element Fairy Realm and the possibility of peace for the Magical Realms. But instead of feeling hopeful, Ramsey is distracted by the choice she made to use the ancient Woodland fairy spell book. Plagued by grief and nightmares, Ramsey performed a spell she didn’t understand. Now she must accept the consequence of her actions. But is Stellan’s presence in her dreams really a punishment…or a gift?

Despite her inner turmoil, Ramsey knows retrieving King Vortigern’s crown must be her main priority. The King grows bolder with each passing day, testing the limits of his dark magic in ways Ramsey and the rebellion never expected. If she is to reach the Golden Fairy Realm and persuade Queen Titania to end the war, Ramsey must completely devote herself to her goal, even if it means facing a king whose experience incredibly outweighs her own.

Should Ramsey keep the elf she once loved bound to her dreams to preserve her sanity? Should she access her wildest Golden fairy magic to defeat the King, even if doing so could destroy her? In this thrilling fourth installment, Ramsey is faced with choices that will determine the fate of the Magical Realms.

My Review:
The Dream catcher took me on another wild magical ride through the realms. What can I say? Markelle has done it again. She has written yet another amazing book in this fun and magical series that I love so much. Every book just keeps getting better and the story keeps developing into something that I would have never imagined it going.

Ramsey and some of her friends are almost to their destination, the rebellion. It's here that they will find assistance and guidance to get King Vortigen's crown from his castle in the element fairy realm. Ramsey will need the help of the King's son Joseph who is the leader of the rebellion.

Things don't go as planned right from the start. Ramsey used a spell from a spell book that she was not supposed to and now Stellan is in her dreams every night. She can only keep this secret for so long. Her relationship with Eder is strained because he wants to be more than her protector all the while she has no memories of her time with him. Then there is her relationship with Nathan, which starts off good but takes a turn for trouble when he finds out she has been keeping secrets from him. If that's not enough, King Vortigen is using black magic to make soldiers that the rebellion might not be able to win against. Ramsey also believes that there is a trader among them, but finding out who it is will be a challenge. The true heir to the crown is kidnapped and it's not who you think. Will Ramsey be able to obtain the crown, take down Voritgen's army, save everyone and her relationship with Nathan?

There were many twists and turns that I never saw coming and was very surprised by. There is romance, friendship, lots of action and suspense with a bit of mystery tied in. I absolutely loved it and cannot wait for Markelle to hurry up and write the next one! I am so excited to find out what happens next in Ramsey's journey. This is a must read series, you will not be disappointed! I highly recommend reading it!
