Review: Sleepers by Megg Jensen

Title: Sleepers

Author: Megg Jensen

Source: ebook from author for review

An adoptee raised in a foreign land, sixteen-year-old Lianne was content with her life as handmaiden to the queen, until a spell cast on her at birth activated. Now she's filled with uncontrollable rage and access to magic she thought had been bled from her people years ago. Even her years of secret training in elite hand-to-hand combat and meditation can’t calm the fires raging inside her.

Her heart is torn between two boys, the one she’s always loved and the one who always ignored her. But when the kingdom threatens to tear itself apart due to rumors surrounding the queen’s alleged affair, who will Lianne protect and who will she destroy?
My take...
Sleepers is a story about friendship and the things we would do for those we love and trust. It is about being true to who you really are and not letting anyone tell you otherwise. Sleepers is about trying to figure out what is right in a world that is so wrong. Sleepers is all of this and so much more.
To me, Sleepers is everything a book should be. It had an incredible storyline with hidden secrets throughout, amazing characters that you felt a need to protect and comfort, and it all flowed so smoothly together to make one beautiful read. Megg also left some things hanging on that cliff at the end that I am sure will be brought to light in the next books of the series.
In my opinion it was a wonderful, wonderful story that has found its place as one of my favorites for 2012. And I truly want to thank Megg for giving me the chance to delve into her wonderful world she so exquisitely created. Well done!
