Summary from Goodreads: 
An adoptee raised in a foreign land, sixteen-year-old Lianne was content with her life as handmaiden to the queen, until a spell cast on her at birth activated. Now she's filled with uncontrollable rage and access to magic she thought had been bled from her people years ago. Even her years of secret training in elite hand-to-hand combat and meditation can’t calm the fires raging inside her.

Her heart is torn between two boys, the one she’s always loved and the one who always ignored her. But when the kingdom threatens to tear itself apart due to rumors surrounding the queen’s alleged affair, who will Lianne protect and who will she destroy?

My Review:
Sleepers is SO GOOD, a definite five star!!! I was hooked from the start and found myself reading late into the night. Megg just has a way with drawing you into a story, she is an amazing writer.

Lianne is an adoptee living in part of a realm separate from her people after a war between the two. She and two others were sent here when they were babies to live until they turn a certain age. She is content with being the handmaid to the queen, who is secretly her best friend.

When three men from Lianne's part of the realm show up to speak to Lianne I started wondering what was going on. But they never get a chance to speak to her because they are caught and ordered by the king to be killed. I thought wow this king is ruthless but this is only the beginning.

Things start to spiral out of control. Lianne's birthday arrives and she is "awakened". She has a burning rage inside her that she can't control. She has been secretly learning to fight for years now and is caught in a love triangle with two guys. For most of the story I was trying to figure out who to trust and who not to. There are a lot of twists and turns that will leave you wondering and wanting more. I would love to say well this happened and oh my gosh this but yeah I'm not going to spoil it for you. The entire book was awesome but the last part was wow for me. I did not see any of that happening. This is a must read! Excited to continue with this trilogy.
