Imogen spends her time plotting her escape from a protected castle before she’s forced to contend with dire circumstances. Meanwhile, Nico has managed to stay alive despite the plague that ravished the world thanks to Lord Crane, but he’s beginning to question if the man’s generosity was worth it. A search for plague survivors brings Nico to a castle where he makes a surprising discovery.

The character dynamics are great, with Rutherford excelling at establishing clever back-and-forths between them. The assortment of characters have well-rounded personalities that allow you to relate to them against the circumstances they face. Among the characters are Nico and Imogen, who are reflections of each other as they’re both just trying to survive.

The story will have you quickly invested in the plight that the characters face. Beautifully written, A Multitude of Dreams features an assortment of characters that are relatable and endearing with an adventure that will keep you invested until the very end.
