Beautifully written, extraordinarily powerful, a rare gem of a read!
Sleep then My Princess is an emotional thriller set in Arizona. While mourning the death of her husband, Senior Tissue Engineer, Stephani Robbins, is plagued by recurring visions of a child being locked up in a chicken coop. Meanwhile, someone is sending her creepy love poems, roses, and photos that have been taken without Stephani's knowledge.
As more photos appear, the police suspect that Stephani has hired someone to take these photos. Before she can convince the police to take her seriously, she is kidnapped. While imprisoned she discovers why she has been having these visions and it is more chilling than she ever imagined. Can she make it out alive?
A dark edgy thriller, author O N Stefan takes us on an electrifying journey in new release Sleep Then My Princess. A gratifying and often graphic page turner Stefan demonstrates a fine eye for nuance and there’s no doubt the thinking part of her narrative works well to deliver a real sense of authenticity. In the main this comes from Stefan’s acerbic rendering of Stephani Robbins. There's a well-worn familiarity to her character’s vulnerabilities and yet she remains unburdened by the usual genre tropes. The plot is intelligent, thoughtful and piercing with an emotional clarity that makes it hard to dismiss and yet it’s a long way off the trite excesses of far too many thrillers where shock value is favoured over the mechanics of good writing. Stephan knows how to strike a nerve and handles gradations of momentum well as readers are swept towards a cracking denouement.
A thriller deserving of your undivided attention, Sleep Then My Princess certainly bodes well for future release from O N Stefan and is strongly recommended.
