Daydreamer (Sleepless Book 1)

New Adult

SUSPENSE/THRILLER:  Luna can’t sleep. She can't tell what is real and what isn’t - her mind creates hallucinations so vivid she is lost. Luna can’t remember certain things, she doesn’t know if certain events happened for real or not, and it’s all very sad. 

Luckily, salvation comes in the form of two amazing guys. They’re both strangers to Luna… but do they know her? Both of them hold meaning for her, and she’s drawn to each of them. When she witnesses a horrific event, she begins looking for answers, and embarks on a quest that leads her deeper into her own mind, and her locked memories. But she might not like what she finds… 

Luna is a well-crafted, three dimensional character. Her struggles feel very real, and make her an easy character to connect with for the reader, although it also adds a rather tragic edge to the book. The secondary characters seemed very real as well and overall, the characterization is well done. However, all of that pales in comparison to the plot, which is downright amazing! It is unlike anything out there, from the start to the very end, with many twists and turns to lead, the reader first in one direction and then another. It’s an incredible read, with great, fast-paced writing, an amazing, multi-layered plot and three dimensional characters.
