When Neil’s past catches up to him, Kelsey must choose between her new family and an old love…
With tensions rising between the Council and demonkind, Kelsey finds herself investigating a series of murders that threaten the fragile truce between them. If she can’t stop these killings soon, they could ignite a fire sure to burn the supernatural world down.
Unfortunately for her, Kelsey’s problems don’t stop with a pile of dead halflings. Her connection with Marcus is frayed at best, and Gray hasn’t been heard from in months. Her only semblance of peace comes from a new man in her life. When Gray storms back into the picture, her love life goes from incredibly complicated to apocalyptic.
Just as Kelsey begins to unravel the mystery, the forces of Heaven decide to take an interest in her actions. Outclassed with these powers in play, Kelsey knows that one misstep could leave the human and supernatural worlds in ashes.

Sleeper is an amazing installment to the Hunter series that not only get me engaged but also made me want more! Action, romance, mystery, supernatural beings, and so much violence. What more could you ask for? Memorable characters? Steamy scenes? Badass females? You can find all of these and more in Sleeper. It’s definitely worth the read.
Kelsey is so strong in this book! She constantly learns more through mistakes and experience, and through that she also gains clarity and strength. The women in this series become more valued and are truly seen as the power holders, the strong links. The author brilliantly wove a tale of past tribes and ancient relics, women bearing power and passing it down through generations only for the scared to steal it away from them. Kelsey returns the power to its rightful place, after learning of a corrupted being and fighting him to make things right.
The one who is corrupt has been killing off half-lings that wish to have safety on Earth, those that wish to give the King valuable information. In doing so, he also frames the King and brings chaos while Daniel tries to make peace with the Hell plane. Kelsey must find out why the demons are being killed, as well as who is behind it. However in doing so, Kelsey gains enemies and thus has to fight them off once again, losing some of her loved ones.
The author creates bonds between people so that those characters grow, and when they are no longer helping each other grow, she breaks them off and starts new ones. This broke my heart a bit in Sleeper, only because two characters I love dearly had their bond broken. It works out well, as new ones are made, but I couldn’t help but feel the loss.
All in all, I definitely recommend this series! It is emotional, thoughtful, and full of great elements that keep you engaged!
