Sleepless by: Terri Clark

by: Terri Clark

Eighteen-year-old Trinity Michaels has the ability to dream walk. It's a power she doesn't want, but it forever alters her life when she's unable to find an abducted teen before she's killed. While Trinity does help police capture the killer, Rafe Stevens, her involvement makes her his next target. Stevens pleads insanity and his convincing performance, aided by his despicable attorney, get him sentenced to a mental institute where a diabolical physician experiments on him. Now Rafe's escaped the sanitarium and he's after Trinity. Like her, he now has a special ability, one that allows him to stalk Trinity through her dreams. If he kills her in her sleep, she'll die for real. To survive she must find him first and the only person willing to help her is Dan Devlin, disillusioned son of the shady lawyer who knowingly aided Rafe in getting away with murder. Can she trust Dan with her safety, not to mention her heart?

This book is a very fast read, but I found it to be very cute. It's a mixture of light reading with a paranormal twist, the idea of course being essentially hunted down in your dreams.

It's not a very long book, only being at around 200 pages, but I enjoyed it. Trinity's main problem throughout the novel is her dream walking, or what essentially is her interacting with people through her dreams. She finds out things she doesn't want to know about people and eventually finds out something so ghastly she has no choice but to try and help.

The book starts off with Trinity's best friend going away for the summer, but not only that but her mother also goes on a month long trip to Europe. I found that these two things were almost too coincidental, I kind of wish they had been a bigger part of the story. Because her mother is gone Trinity inlists help from Dan (who is also her arch nemesis' son) to help catch the killer and end whatever mind control he has on her dreams.

I felt this book was almost too light at times. The relationship between Dan and Trinity happened too fast, and I would have liked to see a bit more struggle, and not so much happiness - which sounds horrible, but it was a paranormral romance involving a killer! haha.

I really did like it, and it was a cute fun read, but I don't think I'll read it again anytime soon.

I give it a 7/10.
