Sleepers (Book One in Swarm Trilogy)
by Megg Jensen

July 20, 2011

 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 Review:
5 Stars
Different in a good way!, August 22, 2012
If you enjoy action packed stories of times past that demand your attention while sweeping you away to a far away land then this book is for you! ;*) I really enjoyed this book for it's take on overcoming our inner demons, secrets, & pushing the limits of what we're TOLD to believe. I've always enjoyed stories about Medieval times, & this one definitely took me back in time! The characters were given true character & feeling without feeling forced. Obvious emotional struggles plague this heroine, but fight that battle she will to find the truth & free herself. The situations felt true to the era (without too much of the "normal" violence) while offering plenty of twists & fun too. Add a little magic & drama to the mix & voila! I'm happy to read a story with plenty of action minus the excess of violence & language. Plus...I always love finding a book that I know my kids will enjoy as well! I am intrigued to see what is to come for Lianne & her friends.
