Book Description

Have you ever been too afraid to go to sleep?

Vincent and Farra hadn't either, but when the people of Lilea fall victim to a mysterious and frightening affliction, sleep becomes the gateway to a new and terrible danger.

With their spirit guides vanished, and unable to wake their friends and neighbours, they soon realise that a new evil is amongst them.

Trying desperately to stay awake, Vincent finds himself plunged into a nightmare battle to find the truth amidst the make believe.

Many days across the gulf of space, the Drycenians suddenly find themselves hosts uninvited guests, who beg them for help.

As they race to Lilea, knowing only that their dearest friends are in desperate peril, they must find a way to communicate with their new guests, and together, find a way to help them.

In order to save Lilea, Vincent must first be found and brought to safety.  It is up to one man
to venture into the darkness, putting his own soul at risk, and lead him back to safety.

Only once Vincent is found and safe, can everyone work to end this evil and save the people of Lilea from the terror of The Sleeping.

What new intrigue is at work on Lilea and how do these two alien friends solve this mystery, to save the people of Lilea?

About the Author

Merita King has loved the science fiction and fantasy genre in both books and movies since she was a young child. She has been greatly inspired by years of watching movies and reading books and has wanted to make a contribution to this genre for many years. Her stories all contain a spiritual thread as she believes that spirituality is universal and crosses all boundaries. She believes that the creative process is largely intuitive and can be very effectively blocked by too much pre-planning. “Plot lines, characters and events all come to me intuitively,” she says, “and this makes the act of writing a constant pleasure.” She lives alone, with her vivid imagination, in Hampshire, UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN EXCITING ADDITION TO THIS SERIES!! October 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Evil has a nasty habit of resurfacing and in "The Sleeping" this quickly becomes apparent to Vincent, Farra and their old friends, The Drycenians. Not even a year had passed since the Lileans started to repatriate to their own planet, and the spirit guides are disappearing; people are falling into a very deep sleep and soon all power sources on Lilea cut out. With the Lileans in mortal peril and those who can't be used by the transmortal spirits having their heads messed with, it is up to the Drycenians to hasten to the rescue.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and could hardly put it down. Thrilling action and nail-biting suspense are beautifully balanced by some tender, romantic scenes and frequent humorous moments. A touch of spirituality brings depth to the story and I was truly moved by the caring and love the characters show towards one another.

For those who love the technical details of a high-tech space environment, there is plenty to grip your imagination in this novel. The author cleverly inserts world building and information concerning the history of the various races into the book without compromising the flow of the story. The wonderfully crafted characters, already dear to me from the first book in this series, "Redemption", now feel like old friends and I hope we'll get to read more about them in future books.

I would advise readers to read the first book in the series before reading "The Sleeping". I happily give this marvelously written book five stars and hope that more of the same will soon come our way. (Ellen Fritz)

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! What a BRILLIANT book October 15, 2012
By Janie
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review.

Having read the first book I had high expectations for this the second book in the series, I was certainly not left disappointed.
What a wonderful second book. It was great to see how far Farra and Vincent and got on re-building their home to be and village as an unusual disease sweeps across the whole of Lilea that the Lilean's have come to call "The Sleeping".
It turn's out that once again they must risk their lives and fight the Transmortals in the Land of the Dead. I love how Dr Jam play's a bigger role in this book and how his story unfolds.
This is action packed and one hell of a gripping read, I cannot wait to read the third book :)
This is a MUST read for anyone

More About the Author

Ever seen that movie, Secret Window with Johnny Depp? If ever you want to know what I'm like when I'm writing, think of that movie. That's me, right down to the tattered bathrobe, unkempt hair and home like a hurricane victim. Everything stops when I'm writing/editing/formatting, I give it my whole attention. I would love to be one of those tidy writers, but I can't, I'm an all or nothing gal.

Science fiction has been a passion for me since I was a kid, largely motivated by my mother's love of the genre. Having grown up on a diet of Star Trek and Blake's 7, further fuelled by my parents' addiction to the physics of outer space, it was a foregone conclusion that I would grow up to be a sci fi nut. You are far more likely to find me watching a programme about how black holes work, than reality tv.

My dreams are big, and I believe that everyone should aim impossibly high. Although you might not quite reach the stars, if you just aim for the ground, you'll only hit the ground. I believe in destiny and pre-destination, reincarnation and alternate dimensions, human life being the result of alien experimentation, and bacon as a remedy for all ills.

I love to laugh but a joke must be clever as well as funny to make my lips quiver. Billy Connolly and George Carlin are my comedic heroes; you can keep your custard pies and banana skins.

Writing has proved to be the making of me in many ways. It has forced me to upgrade my vocabulary and knowledge, and it allows my naturally observant nature to be of positive benefit. Finally, as the Autumn years of my life begin, I now have a way to get my voice heard and my inner self flying to the stars where she has always wanted to be. I invent worlds, terraform them to my own design, and populate them with people of my own imagining. I cannot change the world I live in, and I cannot leave it for somewhere more comfortable, so I invent my own spend as much time in them as I can.

You are welcome to visit my universe. Take a chance and catch a flight today, you may just find you never want to return.
