Customer Review

I have only recently been experimenting with purchasing some of the less expensive Kindle novels, and I have gotta say, its a crap-shoot. Its a pleasant surprise when one is decent, and down-right exciting when its is great. This one falls into the latter category.

Others have given a good synopsis of the story so I won't get into details of the storyline. I will say that it is an excellent Fantasy/Romance/Action along the lines of "Graceling." The characters are well-written, interesting and likable. The romance is slow in building, and although it is a large part of the book, it doesn't detract from the adventure.

I have been reading all of Ms. Young's releases over the past week or so, and one of the things I like best in them is the strong lead female characters that don't take any crap from the men in the stories. This one is no exception. Although Rogan's 'power' is rather sublime, she more than makes up for it with the strength of her personality.

So, if Fantasy/Romance with a heavy dash of action and strong female leads is your thing, I thoroughly recommend Slumber! I look forward to the next chapter in The Chronicles of the Fade!
