About the Author

Keri Lake is a married mother of two living in Michigan. She writes fiction in the genres of paranormal romance, urban fantasy and YA. As a graduate of Michigan State University (go green!), Keri holds two degrees in science but would gladly trade both to pursue her true passion for writing. Though novels tend to be her focus, she has also written countless short stories and flash fiction whenever the distraction arises. When she isn’t toiling away on plots and protagonists, she enjoys reading, music and travel. If she could create mystical powers for herself, she’d have the ability to flash to anywhere in the world. And if she could flash to anywhere in the world at this very moment, she’d be staring at the ocean from her adirondack chair on the shores of North Carolina. Her website is: www.kerilake.com

This is a novel I highly recommend to readers of pararomance. Very well written, with evocative detail, and twists and turns I didn't expect. I am looking forward to the next book in the series!

A love story with a twist, several twists. I read in small doses at first, not wanting to miss any details, but as the story developed and I came to empathize more with the MC, I found myself having a harder and harder time putting it down for things like dinner with the family or getting a good nights sleep. It will draw you in, spur your imagination, and awaken your fears.

**WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS**

I'm not that well read in the angel/demon path of the pnr genre-this was only my second foray. And whilst it was a far throw from the first one I read, this one was still enjoyable-in a weird and darkly twisted kind of way. No, it's not scary. Maybe if I try and organise my thoughts, the comment will make more sense-which probably warrants a random rambling alert.

Here goes:

- the opening seemed a little slow. HOWEVER, I think if it had been sped up much more, the attraction/connection that Allie has for/with Colton would have been horribly forced and would have in no way worked. ALSO, despite there not seeming to be very much happening or a whole lot of action (which is what I'm more used to when I pick up this genre), the reader has only to read between the lines to sense the heavy weight of foreboding that has been rather clever woven in. It's not slap-upside-the-head obvious, but it's there. You simply have to allow yourself to immerse in Allie's world and you'll find it.

- Colton. Yes, I liked him. HOWEVER (There's deffo more to that guy and his hierarchical place than meets the eye. It was more than hinted at from quite early on in the book (if you're paying attention) and then pretty much confirmed later on in the book (if you're paying more attention than Allie was), but he's left as one huge lose thread-which is fine as I happen to know this is the first book in a trilogy (?-possibly longer?).

- Colton. We're told what he is-kinda. But we don't have the full scope of just what he can do, what his rules are, what kind of `law' he's expected to follow or who moulds said `law'. I'm fine with this.

Stop thinking about it and buy it. You won't be disappointed. The imagery and detail is just as captivating as the plot. You get lost in the story and the paranormal very much feels possible!

From the synopsis I wasn't exactly sure what to expect from the book itself. I kind of thought it was going to be part love triangle part action based book. So when I started reading the book I was a little bit surprised when I found that it started off pretty slow. While books that start slowly tend to get under my skin, I gave this one more of a chance, and it was more a slow start since the author was laying down the foundation of the story, which I understand.

Once the book started going I found that the book had a pretty good pace. There was a lot of guess work going on from me, I kept trying to figure out what was going to happen next. I actually felt that the book was more suspenseful than action, which I actually enjoyed a lot more. I really love books that keep me guessing, it keeps my imagination fired up, and I love it even more when I think I have figured out what is going to happen next and then something entirely different happens.

As for the main character, Allie, I felt like she was really kind of a great character. I identified with her and really pulled for her to figure things out and just overall I liked her. She is a really smart girl, but she is also able to stand on her own and definitely has a mind of her own. Plus I also really like the way her personality kind of feeds off the other characters she surrounds herself with. They all kind of compliment each other with their different personalities.

That being said the story was lacking in a couple of parts. I had some issues with some of the mystery element within the book, some of them weren't fully fleshed out, and I am one of those readers who really hate loose ends. I don't like finishing a book, and then finding that I didn't get all the answers I was looking for.

Format: Paperback
Definitely a five star read. The protagonist is feisty, endearing, horny and for the most part, attracts trouble like a lightning rod. Whilst the premise is paranormal romance, there is a good mystery novel feel to the book, (Which basically means pay close attention to the subtle clues the author weaves throughout the prose) There's a Sookie Stackhouse air about trying to figure out which of the main male leads are good for the protagonist and well, who's trying to kill her. Unfortunately, even the best of us amateur sleuths aren't going to resolve that enigma until the very last quarter of the novel, and my goodness, the twist at the end makes it well worth the wait.

One good measure I have to state for Somnium, is that the protagonist doesn't make stupid decisions just to create arbitrary conflict, something a lot of authors tend to lean towards. The protagonist is strong, determined, a bit too hot under the collar for her own good but she works in a man's world and knows she has to be as tough if not tougher, to keep the respect she's earned. So no damsel in distress here. However she is only human and in a world of serial killers, demons, angels and ghosts, the protagonist meets danger that even she can't bluff her way out of. Danger that forces her to rely on every ounce of her abilities to survive. Looking forward to book two.
