Publisher's Summary

Return to the darkly beautiful world of The Sin Eater's Daughter with a sequel that will leave you awed, terrified...and desperate for more.

Ever since her brother Lief disappeared, Errin's life has gone from bad to worse. Not only must she care for her sick mother, she has to scrape together rent money by selling illegal herbal cures. But none of that compares to the threat of the vengeful Sleeping Prince, whom the Queen just awoke from his enchanted sleep.

When her village is evacuated as part of the war against the Sleeping Prince, Errin is left desperate and homeless. The only person she can turn to is the mysterious Silas, a young man who buys Errin's herbs to cast dangerous spells she was never supposed to see. Silas promises to help Errin, but when he's taken by the Prince's forces, Errin must journey across her war-ravaged kingdom to find Silas's family - a legendary band of alchemists with the power to cure Errin's mother. But their abilities come at a great cost, and with the Sleeping Prince drawing nearer, Errin must make a heartbreaking choice that could affect the whole kingdom.

Narrator is my favorite

Amy Shiels is by far my favorite narrator, her voice is very soothing and does not grate on your nerves. I really wish she did more then just the 2 books. I really like the book, I got through it in only two days and when I wasn't listening I was thinking about when is be able to play it again.5 stars all around

Loved the first book and this one is better

What made the experience of listening to The Sleeping Prince the most enjoyable?

The narrator nailed it again. She brings the story to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Erin is the main character in this book and is another strong female character.

What about Amy Shiels’s performance did you like?

She gives each character their own voice and all are believable and easy to listen to.

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

Definitely. I couldn't put this down. My daughter and I read it at the same time and her reaction was the same. We had to tear ourselves away so we could go to work...

Any additional comments?

Would recommend this series to any age. And can't wait for the last in the series due out in 2017.

WOW! Worth the credit

What did you love best about The Sleeping Prince?

I love everything about this book, the narration, story and characters. Rich, deep and infused with fairy tale. This is book 2 of series ,a thread that continues from book 1 with completely new leading characters,and can be considered a stand alone book.The story got better and better and I could not stop listening. This book is pretty perfect, high fantasy, mystery, twist and turns.The absolutely love the interaction between Errin and Silas, romantic and sweet yet there was very little romance. Beautiful writing. Looking forward to book #3.

Can't wait for the next book in the series!

Awesome, way better than the 1st book, since we had a strong character throughout. This one pieces it all together and helps us better understand why Twyla acted as she did in the 1st book. The ending is such a cliffhanger!!!

Wow!

I listened to her first book in the series and immediately had to get the second.
the narrator does an amaaaazing job reading this. The story itself, phenomenal! Unlike anything I've read before.
There are so many twists and turns that there were a few times I had to rewind to make sure that's really what I heard. The ending will make you want to cry because there is no third book out yet and you just want to hear more.
I could not stop listening. 5 stars only because I can't give more. Very well done.

Kept my attention to the very end!

I don't often write reviews but when I do, it's because that book truly captured my imagination. I listen to books while I run and I'm training to run the NYC Marathon. My first 50 miles flew by thanks to the Sin Eater's Daughter and The Sleeping Prince! I cannot wait for the Scarecrow Queen to be available!!

Thrilling story!

I loved this book! What a great sequel to the first one!
I really loved the change of narrative, I thought that was a good way of telling the story through someone else's eyes, and it was worked in seamlessly.
Such a thrilling read! I cannot wait for the 3rd one to release!
Great narration job by one of my favorites, Amy Shiels. Although there was a small sparking or clicking sound constantly heard behind her speaking, I didn't really mind.
Either way, great book, great author, great story! Cheers for "The Sleeping Prince"

I want the next book NOW

I love it when I can't predict a story! And when the narrator can draw me in it's even better.

Better than the first.

I liked the first book. But this book was even better. I listened to the entire book in 1 day. Now I'm ready for the final book.
