Publisher's Summary

Settled in with her main guard, Verity has been dazzled by Sithen life and the possibilities of what her world could be and will be when she wins the crown, but life is about to throw her some curveballs she never thought possible.

Prince of the Lotus Courts, Aziz, is on his way to her Sithen, as well as the Salim household staff that has been scattered to the winds, and of course, the rest of her guard. Knowing this Princess Verity is both ready and excited to receive those that are winging to her aid.

But with the sweets, come the sour.

Forces are at work against her and her guard, forces set on both hurting the princess and limiting her guard. Three times she will be tested, three times she will decide if the men she is presented with are worthy of guardship, even with the secrets they hide.
But when an olive branch is extended from two other courts will Verity accept, or will she choose to navigate the waters of High Court alone?

Book two of the Sleeping Court Series. 

A reverse harem romance.

Soo good!

I absolutely love that Josh has taken over as the narrator for this series. He does such an excellent job of what I assumed the characters sound like. This story is amazing. Fae courts, sabotage, guards/lovers, coming into one's self and fantastic plot twists. I couldn't ask for more!

More, Please

Joshua is becoming my all time favorite narrator. I could listen to him read the dictionary and not get bored. Stella and Kay have definitely given him a challenge.... so many characters in one scene, which means changing voices a LOT! Cliff hangers aren't usually my thing, but these authors break the story at just the right spot to make the book feel complete yet leave you wanting to find out what's next. The complete series is complete in ebook/print format and I have already read it. However, once the 3rd book (Trance) is in audio, I will be purchasing it. The story is just that good.

Super sexy

I really enjoyed this book and the evolution of Verity’s world in this one. Her guard continues to grow as she learns some of the moves being made against her. You’ll want to start the next one immediately with an ending like that. The narrator did a great job on this one. Can’t wait for the next one.

This series just gets better

I'm loving this series. It gets better and better as it progresses. The addition of more guards brings with it more power and friendships, but also additional challenges as our faerie princess prepares to step up and fight for the crown and title of queen of all faerie. Hot romance (M/F, M/F/M, M/F/F, F/F), fun banter and great pop culture references (movies, TV and music) make me a happy audio listener. The narration by Joshua Macrae is fantastic and gets my blood pumping in just the right ways. I love when a story sweeps me away and I want to stop what I'm doing and just absorb the world. Again, the ending would have left me cranky if I couldn't just roll straight into book 3. Be warned or you'll have to hang on a bit of a cliff.

The Plot Heats Up

I’ve already reviewed this book here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/3008203517 when I read it as an ebook. This means this review is going to focus on the audio version. In my review of the first audio book in this series I commented on the nature of the narrator’s ability with accents, in that he doesn’t really have any. I think with this second book I’ve either got used to the accents or they’ve got better. I think I may have just sunk into the story more and allowed the quality of the accent to slip away because the narration, other than the accents is good. I binge listened to this book and it wasn’t that long ago that I read it, I enjoyed it that much. It’s a good fun way to spend an afternoon.

jeeeeeeeeez!

ok I'm gonna be up front - I hate with a passion cliffhangers. that said, what a way to stop! the phone almost got thrown out the window when it ended. luckily I have the next book - so at this point I'm ecstatic! ok the review...... no spoilers, you need to listen/read it for yourself you WILL NOT be disappointed. the story continues at a clip, its engaging (and hot). I'm starting to develop a crush on Joshua Macrae, luckily my husband is ok with this. I believe this will become a go to series for me. to be honest, apart from the abrupt end, I truly loved it. the family are currently laughing at my complete strop. it doesn't happen normally. bravo to all involved, you did incredibly well x

To Be A Fae Princess

Awaken is an excellent follow-up to Slumber. Verity has obtained her claim of the Sleeping Court; her powers are next on the list. Enemies lurk, and Verity must be cautious against deception. She continues to learn her way around the Court protocols and what it means to be a Fae Princess. Joshua Macrae does a superb job with the narration. Overall this is an entertaining and enjoyable audiobook. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Princess

This book delves more into what it means to be a princess, and some of the sacrifices are starting to reveal themselves. This book introduces more characters, in which you’ll fall more in love with. Also has some action, but the ending will truly have you grabbing for book three.
