Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times and USA Today best-selling author...Slumber - A Romance.

Molded by a tragic childhood, 19-year-old Rogan finds it extremely difficult to trust people. Now Haydyn, her best friend and the one person she does trust, is dying and only Rogan can save her.

Setting off on a journey to retrieve the plant that will cure Haydyn and subsequently the ills that will befall them all if she dies, Rogan is stuck in close quarters with a protector she distrusts above all others.

Wolfe Stovia: The son of the man who destroyed Rogan’s family.

At a constant battle of wills with the handsome Captain of the Guard, Rogan just knows this adventure together will be fraught with tension. She never imagined, however, that the quest would be so dangerous… not least of all when she finds herself falling for a man she could have sworn was her number-one enemy.…

Pleasantly Surprised, a real treat

Any additional comments?

THIS is the way to write romantic fantasy.

This story is better than the synopsis sounds. The writing is very good.

Currently $1.14 for Kindle version and $1.99 for the Audible version. WELL worth it.

First off I'll admit Romances typically are not my thing. Now, I don't mind some romance in my stories, if done well, and not too angsty, have a love triangle and or insta-love, but too often I've found in books labeled "Romance" everything but the "romance" seems thrown in as window dressing.

However, there are a few notable exceptions, and this is one of them. I'd label this Romance/Fantasy. There is an actual, real plot here. Not too complex a plot, but in this case that didn't matter to me. Because, the writing is excellent, the world in which it takes place is well drawn, as are secondary characters, and it was a real pleasure to read this story. The author knows how to tell a story, set a scene and give us characters we can like and care about.

Bonuses: Our heroine is feisty, and our hero, while having his grumpy, testy moments, is not a jerk.

If you like Romances that are more than thrown together to be devoured and forgotten, and you can enjoy some fantasy and adventure elements mixed in, then you may very well like this one.

If you enjoy fantasy, adventure, with a plucky heroine and don't mind a bit of romance in the mix, then you also may enjoy this one.

And with a Kindle price of $1.14 there's not much risk giving it a try.

The story is self-contained. Although I'd love more stories set in this world it appears currently the author has no plans to write more.

Read it!

I absolutely loved this book and so wish that there were more of it. I would definitely read more about this world and the people in it! I certainly feel like there is much more to get into and on with. Great read. The narrator (lately I have had a lot of question as to whether or not some of the authors listen to the person they choose to tell their story) is easy to listen to and has good use of emotion. That, alone, is hard to find.

sad

it appears. I read and fell in love with this book and the series was never finished. Still a great read though.

From the first lines this book draws you in.

I really enjoyed this story. Hearing how she slowly grows up and realised who she is as a person. learning not to judge someone based on their parents and falling in love. The magic in this story is not overbearing but enough to excite you and keep you grabbing for this book. I am sad that it is over and will be looking for other things from this author as well.

Good story, romance was lacking

Read this for the adventure story which was quite good. The romance was lacking, I just had no interest in that part of the plot. I'm surprised though because she wrote many great friendships, so I don't know why I couldn't buy into the love interest.

Not enough romance to drive this YA fantasy

I didn't enjoy this one but it was me. If you like Fantasy stories, this is a good one. It was set in a magical Realm Dyzvati with princess Haydyn and her BFF Rogan as the main characters. Haydyn had a disease and Rogan was on the quest to get a plant in order to save the last living princess of Dyzvati.

Rogan as the Handmaiden of Pheadra was a pretty strong character and heroine, but I guess I was expecting some of the On Dublin Street magic. But Rogan was a focused heroine, and so the story wasn't focused on attraction brewing between Rogan and Wolfe, the captain of the guard.

I really liked Wolfe and wanted him to find happiness with Rogan. But Rogan was very resistant to him because of Wolfe's father (Syracen) and what he'd done to Rogan's family. I was hoping for more fireworks and angst, but it wasn't really there. It was an okay story but it just didn't thrill me.

Meh....

It was a struggle for me to finish. Disappointed with the story and narrator. I wish they had gotten a different narrator

Listened for 20 Minutes - WAY TOO MANY NAMES

What would have made Slumber better?

Couldn't even stick with it long enough to let it get good. There were so many names and clans and on and on - no way I could begin to remember them.
