Book Summary:

Don’t Close Your Eyes.
Sophie Cavanaugh is not going to let her freak of a cousin’s strange psychiatric condition ruin high school for them both. Not after all the work she’s put into cultivating the right look, and friends, and reputation. But then, Sophie sees something so frightening she lets out a blood-curdling scream—and finds herself stuck in a bizarre parallel world where nothing is safe and deadly creatures lurk just out of sight, waiting for her to close her eyes and sleep…forever.
Could this world be real? Or does insanity run in the family…?

Never to Sleep is a short 56 page ebook.

I admit I do not particularly like Sophie and didn’t have any desire to read anything about her.  However this books introduces a character who will likely play a part in the next books in the series and we learn that there might be more to Sophie than we thought.  It was worth reading and while I doubt I’ll ever like Sophie I can see things a little better from her perspective now.

If you are a Soul Screamers fan then you should read this novella.  It does contain a spoiler so read it after you read book #5 If I Die.

Rating: 3.5 Stars – Good Book
