Murdered by a mysterious stranger, Ella Barnes died as a 17 year old teenager and wakes up in Raena, the witches’ world, as Sunlight Reflecting off the Moon. A different body, a different name as well as different parents; a world that is seemingly perfect but laden with injustice decree. Will Ella or the new Sunlight be able to accept her unique role in a society that only exists in human imagination?

"The Witches’ Sleep" is an exceptionally well-paced story, a pleasure that I rarely experience as an avid reader. I was truly immersed in my reading and connected with the story and its characters so well as if I was experiencing it for real. I was able to picture the surroundings easily as they are very well-portrayed. I’m glad that Raena has comparable modern settings as the normal world instead of an entirely different scenery which is normally depicted in other novels with similar themes. Ella or Sunlight is definitely the center that anchors the story and the other characters. A very well-created character, and very vibrant with acceptable weakness and admired strength. I loved the fact that the witches’ names depicted their main traits and I found it a bit humorous that the were-creatures had normal human names. Kaitlyn Deann is my new favorite author and she did extremely well with the first installment of this trilogy. I can’t wait for the next book form this remarkable author.

This book was simply AMAZING!! I am not a big reader at all, and it takes a lot for me to read a whole book. I have to absolutely love it or I will put it down and forget about it...Well congratulations, you passed the Erin test!! I read the entire book in one day! I love the story line because it has some romance in it, but also action and mystery to keep it exciting. I am looking forward to reading the rest of The Witches' Sleep Trilogy:) If you haven't read this book, you need to.

P.S. "Tuck is so hot!!" :P

I had heard of this book but I didn't really think that I would enjoy it because of the witches. I love fantasy and magic, just never been a big fan of the witch. Now you can go ahead and discard all preconceptions of what you think of when you hear the word "witch".
I saw a free promo going on for the book so I thought why not get it. I'm so glad I did. It is definitely worth purchasing! It sucked me in from the start and I could hardly put it down till I finished it.
You could think of the witches more like a different type of humanoid race just some with special powers. So no, there's no ugly, wart covered, wearing pointy hats, being followed around by black cats and flying on brooms type of witches.
The plot is fresh and interesting. The characters are well developed and the story is paced nicely. I loved all the various were-creatures, especially the tigers.
I just loved the concept of the entire story and I definitely will read the others in the series!
I definitely recommend this book!
