Book Review: Sleepless by Cyn Balog

       Eron De Marchelle isn’t supposed to feel a connection. He is a Sandman, a supernatural being whose purpose is to seduce human charges to sleep. While he can communicate with his charges in their dreams, he isn’t encouraged to–after all, getting too involved in one human’s life would prevent him helping his other charges get their needed rest.

        But he can’t deny that he feels something for Julia. Julia, with her fiery red hair and her sad dreams. Just weeks ago, her boyfriend died in a car accident, and Eron can tell that she feels more alone than ever. Eron was human once too, many years ago, and he remembers how it felt to lose the one he loved. Eron has always felt protective of Julia . . . but now, when she seems to need him more than ever, he can’t seem to reach her . . .
       Sandmen are forbidden from communicating with humans outside their dreams. But will Eron be willing to risk everything for a chance to be with the person he loves?

This book had an interesting concept. There aren't many stories about Sandmen, after all. I did have a few problems with this book, though. The plot line was conflicting and the end was way to predictable, making it lame. Sorry, but that's how it was. Predictable endings aren't always a bad thing, but it didn't work out so well in this book. This is probably not a book I will be picking up again any time soon.
 


Next up for review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.

  1. I didn't like this book very much either. I thought the dead ex boyfriend was creepy. I agree, there were a lot of conflicting things about the plot.
