Présentation de l'éditeur

**This novel is for upper YA. It contains some mild language and brief sexual situations**

An adoptee raised in a foreign land, sixteen-year-old Lianne was content with her life as handmaiden to the queen, until a spell cast on her at birth activated. Now she's filled with uncontrollable rage and access to magic she thought had been bled from her people years ago. Even her years of secret training in elite hand-to-hand combat and meditation can’t calm the fires raging inside her.

Her heart is torn between two boys, the one she’s always loved and the one who always ignored her. But when the kingdom threatens to tear itself apart due to rumors surrounding the queen’s alleged affair, who will Lianne protect and who will she destroy?

My copy of Sleepers by Megg Jensen is based on an e-book that I was sent by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. The following is that honest review and was in no way influenced.

Goodreads Summary: "An adoptee raised in a foreign land, sixteen-year-old Lianne was content with her life as handmaiden to the queen, until a spell cast on her at birth activated. Now she's filled with uncontrollable rage and access to magic she thought had been bled from her people years ago. Even her years of secret training in elite hand-to-hand combat and meditation can't calm the fires raging inside her.

Her heart is torn between two boys, the one she's always loved and the one who always ignored her. But when the kingdom threatens to tear itself apart due to rumors surrounding the queen's alleged affair, who will Lianne protect and who will she destroy?"

Despite owning an e-book copy of Anathema that I scored awhile back for free off of Amazon Sleepers was my first Megg Jensen book and what an introduction to her it was.

Since I was a little girl I've always rooted for the underdogs, the person [or people] that aren't widely regarded by the majority as the one[s] that will come out on top which made this the perfect book for me. It was all about the underdogs! And redheads! Who doesn't love redheads? [I have bought many a bottle of hair dye trying to become one myself!]

Lianne, our redheaded heroine, came across as so very real to me. She was a teenage girl, torn between two boys, two countries and two selves. I loved every moment of her journey of finding herself, determining who she really was and realizing that she was her own person and therefore free to not only be herself but make her own decisions. The rest of the cast of Sleepers were equally as great in their own ways; making their own marks and coming across as actual people that Lianne interacted with rather than cardboard cut-outs standing around to take up space.

One of my favorite aspects of this novel was that you could not take any knowledge given to you [the reader] as the gospel; someone was always there to contradict it, to challenge it, to make you question everything you thought you knew. Every time you think you have the ending figured out, you know who the bad guys are, you know what will happen next something else comes out of nowhere and blindsides you.

The ending floored me; I hit the next button on my Kindle about a dozen times trying to find the rest of the story. It was like I was watching a movie, something dramatic happened and all of a sudden the screen went blank. You can't leave me here! But she did. And now I'm desperate for a sequel; I have to know what happens next! I'm giving Sleepers by Megg Jensen a five out of five stars review. Go out and get a copy of Sleepers now, you won't regret it!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Only one good thing... 21 juin 2012
Par Jennifer Kyrnin - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have been trying to give books like this the benefit of the doubt. After all, the author did the work of writing it and then shared it with the world for free. But ultimately, when I find myself pressing to finish it, not because it's a page-turner, but because "there's only 20% left" and then checking that percent every time I turn the page, I need to admit the book is bad.

The problems:
- The plot is boring. It is standard "girl in fantasy world learns to fight and takes on injustice."
- Plot problems can be overcome, when the world is interesting, but this world has no character at all. All I really know is that two countries warred, her country lost, and she was made hostage to the winning country with two child compatriots.
- Oh and her sweet sixteen turns on her magic. Huh? Which she can't control, but she has a week to learn, save the adulterous (and really young) queen who is also her best/only friend and the queen's bastard child.
- By the way, the queen is locked in a dungeon because the king has unspecified proof of her adultery, but he doesn't know who the father is.
- Oh and her boyfriend, who she's loved since she was a kid, is using her, so she realizes she's actually in love with this other guy who has avoided her for years.
- Everything happens too quickly with too little explanation. The rescue happens with only a day or so of planning, she goes from total adoration of Kellan to being in love with Bryden in about 3 minutes, she can barely manage her magic, but she can do more with it immediately than either of the other two hostages. This would be okay except that then the author refers to how she's been in love with Bryden for a long time without realizing it. Seriously?

I suppose it's realistic for a 16-year-old to think that two-day-old love is a long time, but Lianne stupid too. She's never touched a weapon, but believes she is the best fighter in the land. Her first boyfriend, Kellan, wants her to kill the king, but he can't help. In fact his plan, that she agrees to, has her killing the king at the execution of the queen, but there is no discussion of how she will get away.

And finally, this book commits the ultimate sin, in my mind, of any book. It doesn't end. They still have to go find the queen. Yes, the title tells you it's a trilogy, but I hate trilogies that are really one long book chopped into three. Perhaps if I liked the characters or the story it would be okay, but I didn't, so it's not.

Oh, and the one good thing? It was free.

Apologies to Ms. Jensen. I wanted to like this book, but it feels like it was written in a month and then not edited at all.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Started out great, went downhill 25 janvier 2012

I thought the first half of this book was really good. Very interesting. However, after that it quickly went downhill. Lianne was so inconsistent as a main character--one minute she's an invincible fighter, the next Kellan beats her up, then she's telling someone how she's one of the greatest warriors ever. I know that's something small, but it's just one example. I also felt like the author was trying really hard to surprise everyone, but too many contrived "surprises" left me disinterested. I won't be reading the rest of the series.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Horrible Characterization 22 février 2013
Par Leoxcrystal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Why lie, I thought this book would be interesting, instead the characters have shallow motivations. The main character is of course dually gifted with magic and weaponry and has the love of two male characters (at least, supposedly). She is also meant to be a "warrior". In truth, she is the least likable "action girl" I've ever met: whiny, self-centered, attracted to jerkish men, and prone to oversimplification of things. Much like the author, who does this with absolutely everything.

In my book, if a teenage warrior girl is to be taken seriously, she could stop thinking about her love interests and her love life for a moment. Also, the villains were thinly developed, evil step(adopted)-sister, evil king, (SPOILER) evil ex...all with no motivation or pretext besides stopping the prowess of all that is good and noble in this world (those scumbags!). Trust me...to read this book takes no understanding of the human psyche, you know from somewhere in the beginning that these people are evil. No second guessing.

Maybe it's just because I like real characterization, with development and understanding behind them. But I didn't like this book and would never recommend it to anyone.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointment 26 juillet 2013
Par Wendy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I don't download books only to discard them after a few chapters but this book is badly written. The main character is unstable, the plot is not credible nor believable. I tried really to continue reading it but the narrative just doesn't flow and it is giving me a headache.
