17 year old Rory is brought to Spindle Ridge Asylum for the Criminally Insane for murdering her fiancé, Phillip. However, she has no recollection of that night. In fact, she has no memories at all before arriving at Spindle Ridge. She has dreams, but it’s hard to differentiate between what is real and what is not.

Then one day a new doctor arrives, and she claims she can help Rory with her memories, with remembering who she really is, and that she can trust her. But can she? After all, this new doctor claims that Rory is really a Princess. How is that so? A Princess wouldn’t do something so horrible to another person, and a Princess certainly would not be in an Asylum. Or would she?

Along with the new doctor came a new patient, Sawyer. He is handsome, wonderful, mysterious, and there is just something about him that draws Rory to him. And those eyes…. Those beautiful eyes that seem to change colors. Sawyer says he is there to help save Rory, help her remember her life before Spindle Ridge. But can she trust him?

Slumber is much like Sleeping Beauty. You have a Princess who is suffering from memory loss- which is a gift more than a curse in her current predicament. You have an evil being who would stop at nothing to take the throne she thinks she is entitled to, and you have a King and Queen who are suffering at the hands of said wanna-be-queen.

As Rory quickly learns, things are not always as they appear. Can the Fae and Warriors help her remember in time to fix things and free herself of the curse bestowed upon her?

I don't know. After reading this book I was surprised with all of the 5 star reviews. The premise was great, but the book itself fell a little flat for me. I know its YA- but I've read so many great, deep, exciting, emotional YA books recently- and this one just didn't "feel"for me.
I wasn't feeling that she was truly in danger. I didn't feel the connection she had with her love interest. I thought that the people who came to help her got in too easily.
Written a different way this story could have been incredibly awesome. A little bit deeper, scarier and more emotion- would have made a fantastic book.
In this case- it was a good idea for a story- but the actual book could have been a liitle bit better.

Let's begin with this cover, shall we? Wow! It's simply beautiful! Isn't it? As soon as I saw it I knew I had to read it! I adore Fairytales, fairytale mashups, & basically all things magical so this was right up my alley. The characters were great. The story was full of emotion, questions, & drama. Then we had the evil fairy & her minions who were definitely throwing around some magic & mischief.
The moment we arrived in Spindle Ridge I felt how I imagine I would if I were in Rory's place i(n an asylum with no recollection of the past or events leading up to my imprisonment). For the greater part of this tale we are witnessing Rory's confusion & attempt at remembrance, but with all of the meds & brainwashing being shoved down her there isn't much more to expect ... until everything begins to change. This is where some action jumps out to play & some interesting twists are thrown at us.

My rating teetered a bit for a few reasons. Even though this wasn't my #1 favorite story by this author I feel it was told extremely well. (And, I have read all of her previous work.) Sloat's writing is always impressive. The characters are never lacking. I just enjoy a bit more action throughout. This is totally a personal preference, & I think that the lack of action was appropriate for the beginning of this tale. I will say that the action Sloat did bring was very entertaining. And ... as always ... she leaves us wanting more. I can't wait to see what she has to come.

I was really kinda disappointed in this one. I didnt go in with any expectations but that about this book sounded so great! The storyline was pretty interesting the story itself felt poorly written and very basic. The story felt very used and the characters felt under developed. It made a lot of the story very uninteresting. And I'm kinda surprised at all the 5 star reviews. The ending wasn't very OMG or anything climatic and I really started to feel like something needed to like blow up or just SOMETHING extreme.

I think this book and its characters would have been amazing if it would have been given more attention to pace, writing style, as well as more development in the story and characters themselves.

This book was offered for honest review. This review is 100% my own thoughts on the story, plot, characters, etc.

That moment when you delve into a fantastic new book ,when you lose yourself in the words, when you ferociously devour the pages so quickly you are already anticipating reading it again…that is Christy Sloat’s Slumber.

This ain’t your momma’s fairytale. Slumber is Sleeping Beauty Grimm style with a Sloat twist. Never have I read a tale quite like this one.

The main character, Rory, is phenomenal. Her character grows and strengthens through the story like the birth of a butterfly. She is weak and closed off in the beginning, but in remembering her “Before” she is able to blossom. I look forward to seeing her in the next book.

If you have followed the writing career of Christy Sloat, then like me you have had the pleasure of seeing her grow into a brilliant writer. Her new YA fantasy is a testament to that. Sloat weaves us a beautiful tale of magic, fairies, and not so happily ever afters in Slumber. This book is sure to be a hit with her fans.
