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.
When we start Slumber, we are told that Rory is in Spindle Ridge Asylum for killing her boyfriend Phillip. Rory, however, doesn't remember this happening or anything from her past.....so what really happened? Well, with the help of Dr. Grey and Sawyer, a fellow patient, Rory starts to remember bits and pieces. And what she remembers will absolutely astound you! This is nothing like the fairytale we read as kids. The beginning of Slumber lacks a little in action, but I feel it fits well with the story and sets the rest up perfectly.
I have read all of Christy's other works and, while I love them all, I think Slumber will always be my favorite. The characters are well rounded and honestly just 'perfect-for-their-part' characters. I am definitely #CrazyForSawyer and will be talking about Slumber for forever. Christy knocked this one so far out of the park it's in a world of it's own. Hands down, the best revamp of a fairytale I've ever read! I give Slumber 5 stars and am very impatiently waiting for the next book!
*I received an ARC of Slumber in exchange for an honest review
WOW...I am really quite speechless about this book and blown away at the same time...
What an amazing twist on an old fairy-tale. This book is nothing like the original Sleeping Beauty, this is Sleeping Beauty meets Grimm. It's fast paced and extremely addicting with its dark, twisted, and phenomenally well written words that just jump out at you and pull you in from the first page. It's an overall spectacular read and one I will read over and over again.
I love how the author pulls you in at the beginning and throws you for a slight tailspin and roller-coaster ride. Rory is a phenomenal character. She is naive yet strong willed. I love how her grows throughout the story. The plot itself is mystical and magical all at the same time, which brings forth the darkness in this story. I love how the spun this story in her own fashion and made me fall in love with the story. This is by far an incredible twist that will be known of forever. I am really excited to read the next installment in this Duology.
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.
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.
