Owl's Slumber (Trials of Fear, #1) by Nicky James 4 Star Review!
Owl's Slumber - Nicky James

Imagine what life would be like if panic ruled your world at the mere thought of going to bed at night.

For as long as he can remember, Finnley Hollins has been crippled by his extreme phobia of sleep. Every night is a battle, and every morning isn’t without consequences. The root cause is something he’s ashamed to admit to anyone. It’s his war, and he will fight it alone. 

When an unexpected turn of events lands the stunningly gorgeous Aven Woods at Finnley’s place of business, his life gets turned upside down. 

All it would take is one night together for his secret to be exposed. Finnley wasn’t prepared to fall in love. More so, he wasn’t prepared for his phobia to completely consume his life. Not only is it affecting his job and his relationship, but now it’s affecting his health. What will it take for Finnley to finally admit he needs help?



I like the concept of this series dealing with heroes who struggle with phobia's so severe they limit their lives.

Fin is afraid of sleep and with good reason that is a slow reveal through out the book. Aven falls from Fin and as we watch the relationship build so does the need to for Fin to seek treatment.

I think there could have been much more time on the falling in love part of the book for the relationship part is very good as is the whole cast and backstory for each hero.

A lovely HEA as well.

The Fear Trials
The Fear Trials - Lindsay Cummings

I'm really trying to finish my popsugar challenge and was having a hard time finding a book with an author that shares my initials, and then I found out about The Murder Complex by someone who doesn't only share my initials but also my first name!! However we were heading on vacation and I couldn't get my hands on The Murder Complex but I could get this and the reviews made it sound like you could read it before reading The Murder Complex.  After reading this I still think that's true but I don't think this was a great novella or a great representation of what this series is about. 

The world really explained in this, other than it's kill or be killed. There is no explanation of why, when or how.  The interactions between characters was interesting because I was curious about the situation, but everything seemed a bit basic and I'm not sure if it's because it's short format or if that's the way the whole book is. 

I don't think this sold me on the series but I may still pick it up, if anyone has read it let me know if it's worth my time.  I'm worried I'm getting sucked into a maze runner situation where I'm going to pick up the next book to find out what the heck is going on only to have nothing ever explained.

The Fear Trials
The Fear Trials - Lindsay Cummings I was planning on reading the Murder Complex, and when I saw this prequel I just had to read it. Short and easy way for me to test if I will like the first book.

Did I like it? No. Really no. If anything, I am glad this one was short and over soon.

The characters were horrendous. I disliked the dad, the brother, the mother, the friend she made, and to top it off, the main character was horrendous as well. My Gosh. Really urgh.

There is some sort of backstory as to why there is a perimeter, there are various stuff about things in people body that makes sure they live/don't die easily. But other than that, there are enough parts that made me go: "Wait what??????" or "Why????".

I disliked the main character. I just couldn't empathize with her, if anything I just wanted to shake her a bit to see if she would get some sense back. She is really annoying, weak, whiny and more.

The dad, urgh, I really disliked him and how he treated his wife and his children. I can imagine you want to toughen them up, but come on, stabbing them? Making them throw daggers at their sisters/brothers? Kicking their asses? o.0

I disliked the brother as well. He was also weird, sure he is pushed by his dad, but I found it weird he could easily break his sisters bones and hurt her, while he can't do the same thing to a stranger and thus was rejected for some kind of job. Does he hate his sister so much? Or is he just so brainwashed by that dad.

I also found it a bit weird that we had one character that was... well totally useless. That little sister of our main character. I felt she was just added so certain events could unfold, and to add some sort of overprotectiveness or some kind of why she does things to the main character.

All in all, I won't be reading the Murder Complex.
