Publisher's Summary

Someone wants Marla Mason dead. Usually that's not news. As chief sorcerer of Felport, someone always wants her dead. But this time she's the target of a renegade assassin who specializes in killing his victims over days, months, or even years. Not to mention a mysterious knife-wielding killer in black who pops up in the most unexpected places.

To make matters worse, an inmate has broken out of the Blackwing Institute for criminally insane sorcerers - a troubled psychic who can literally reweave the fabric of reality to match her own traumatic past.

With her wisecracking partner Rondeau reluctantly in tow, Marla teams up with a "love-talker" whose dangerous erotic spells not even she can resist.

Together they're searching the rapidly transforming streets of Felport for a woman who's become the Typhoid Mary of nightmares, infecting everything - and everyone - she touches with a chaos worse than death itself.

BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author T.A. Pratt.

    "This Series is AMAZING!"

    T.A. Pratt has a wonderful imagination, Ive just finished the fourth book of this series and I must say, its been one heck of a ride. Great stories, the evolution of the characters was fascinating to watch. The magical world hes created is rich in detail and so interesting! After this book, read Death Reign then Spell Games. This series is the best urban fantasy Ive read, by far.

    "Best of a great series."

    Dear T.A. Pratt, I love you. I love Marla, and I hope she can bring "you know who" back (no spoilers here!). Please tell me that you are already working on the next book. Please? Pretty please? Did I mention that I love you?

    Story
    "Book 2 is #1"
    Where does Poison Sleep rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Hard to answer a question like this. How can you rate this against a romance, or any other style of story? Maybe the middle?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Poison Sleep?

    I liked the way that Genevive gave Z spiderman- mold superpowers.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I got my feet wet with the first one and this one was better. I had to drag myself away.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this book was better than the first one and I think that T.A. Pratt has a better grasp of how to write Marla so that she isn't so one dimensional as she was in the start of the first book.

    Story
    "Not as good as Blood Engines..."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Rondeau! He's funny, really funny, and loyal. Nothing seems to phase him. And, he compliments Marla well.


    What does Jessica Almasy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Jessica Almasy! She's one of my favorites. Her voices are distinct and very believable.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh the ending of course. Sad sad sad. Loss and betrayal. Sad.


    Any additional comments?

    Though this is a good book, it's not as good as the first book, in my opinion.

    I flip-flop between business and fiction books to keep me grounded in reality while still keeping my childhood love of fantasy firmly intact.

    "ALMOST a great book..."

    I loved Bone Shop and Blood Engines, but this one dragged in the middle, which almost made me return it! I'm glad I listened through the middle, though, because I enjoyed the end a lot! I'm just not sure if I want to read another Marla Mason title.

    Story
    "Super cool sequel"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Poison Sleep to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I haven't tried it in print.


    What other book might you compare Poison Sleep to and why?

    Perhaps the early Dresden files books - only because they're also written with a lively imagination and plenty of humour.


    What about Jessica Almasy’s performance did you like?

    Jessica Almasy gives each character a unique personality - it is really entertaining to listen to, because it's not just a "different voice", it's changes in pitch, tempo and timing - fantastic.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!

    Story
    "A Good Start to an Enjoyable Series!"
    If you could sum up Poison Sleep in three words, what would they be?

    Gritty, kick-butt, heroine


    What other book might you compare Poison Sleep to and why?

    If Harry Dresden had a female counterpart, Marla Mason would be her.


    What does Jessica Almasy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jessica Almasy has a good grown up voice, gives Marla a mature tone.
