Never to Sleep (Soul Screamers #5.5) by Rachel Vincent

NeverToSleepDon’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…?

Oh Sophie…. clueless, self-centered, selfish and more often than not, just plain mean. I was really hoping that her knowledge of the world she was oblivious to before would make her a little more likable. I suppose there’s still hope, but it didn’t happen in Never to Sleep.

SoulScreamersVol3I did like this installment in the series though and it was a great segue into the next book because it introduced a new character. It also gave us a personal glimpse into Sophie’s world. I was just really hoping that getting in Sophie’s head would give me some reason to like her. *sigh* Petty, I know, but that’s the only reason that I held back a 1/2 star in my review. LOL!
