Author: Thomas Fahy

Available Now

Pages [hardcover]: 209

Opening LinesEmma doesn’t really notice the cold night air or the damp grass beneath her feet. Only the howling sound in her ears.


SOMEONE ELSE WILL DIE SOON she tells herself.
A few days after the first time you walk in your sleep, you kill someone. That’s how the end begins.
Emma Montgomery has been having gruesome nightmares. Even worse, when she wakes up, she isn’t where she was when she fell asleep. And she’s not the only one. One by one the students of Saint Opportuna High start having nightmares, and sleepwalking. And the next morning one of their classmates turns up dead.

Something is making them kill in their sleep. Emma and her friends need to band together, to keep themselves awake until they can figure out what’s behind the murders–before anyone else dies.


For some reason, I wasn’t really sure what this book was really about until I started reading it. I read the summary over a few times but it never really clicked with me. Anyway. This was a typically YA horror story. A bunch of teenage kids, throw a few couples in there with some teen romance, and someone making them sleepwalk and kill each other.

I was off and on about liking this story. There were definitely good moments, and the dream scenes were described perfectly, but the ending was very disappointing. It was awkward and left me thinking, what just happened?

Overall, I think if you’re looking for a little horror, don’t mind reading about death and blood, this is good for you. There isn’t much gore, which I appreciated. I give Sleepless 3/5 stars.

  1. this is the best book ever and i achshully wanted to read it all night long it keept me guessing and i hope the writer makes a sequel!!!
    i wish that book never ended…but if there is not a sequel the ending would have disapointed me ALOT! so i do hope there is a sequel
    i really want it to go on more because the ending was a little bit confuseing i want to know if she dies or never wakes up or is with jake witch would make the best start of a sequel if she is with jake and maby it could show two years later and jake and emma get married and lily still hasent found a man because she is still heartbroken from duncans death. then they reunite and have like a get togeather but just with the three of them lily jake emma. then right at the end it coiuld be like the nightmares the killing starts again and its from live at five the show and then they turn off the tv and boom it turns black.! and then you could make another book continuing from that and make more money off this book and let people injoy the book a little more but it was so good it took me 2 days to read 209 pages insted of 2 weeks cuz i really liked this book pleasee make a sequal PLEASE!!!
