Sleepers (The Swarm Trilogy #1) by Megg Jensen

Synopsis
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 Thoughts

★★★★★ 5+ Wonderful Stars

Right from the start I knew this book was going to be a unique page turner. It's not often you come across a book that has a young queen who is best friends with a adopted maid. I use the term maid loosely here because while, yes, she did help out with a lot of things, she was also allowed a lot of things others weren't.
This was one of those books where I thought "Yeah, yeah yeah. This, this, and this is gonna happen." Man was I wrong. I was gasping and had my jaw dropped half the time from things I didn't except to happen. Sleepers was truly an amazing read! It's one of those that I kinda wish I could unread, just so I could read it again.
Megg Jensen is a true amazing author, and I cannot wait to read the rest of these books.
