*NOTE: Author Kristin R. Campbell provided us (The Readdicts) with a copy of her book, Sleeping Gods, book #2 in the Lunangelique series. We thank the author for the book!

Sleeping Gods is the second book in the Lunangelique series by Kristin R Campbell. You can read my review of Lunangelique here.
After reading Lunangelique, I was really excited to know more about twins Alex and Lexi and author Kristin R Campbell sent me a copy of the book in exchange for a review. Sleeping Gods was, if I am to...more

Thank you to Kristin Campbell for an advanced copy of the sequel to her first book! I was touched and honored to be included in such a way. I LOVED the first book and had eagerly anticipated the second.

Mrs. Campbell manages to continue her story with brilliance and left me begging for more at the end. I laughed out loud several times and cried with Lexi in others. I look forward to the conclusion of this series and any future writing from the author. She has, in just 2 books, gained a reader for...more

I am so in love with this series. I devoured both books in less than two days. In fact, I was about 30% done last night and the FIRST thing I did this morning was pick up the book and finish it. I could not wait to finish. I also think I had dreams about it last night, actually.

Alexis tries to mend her broken heart after Cole leaves her. It was incredibly heart wrenching to watch her try to pull herself together. A slight love triangle develops as Alexis struggles with her emotions and attempts...more

This book was an exhilarating continuation of the Lunangelique series. I really love Campbell's twist on Greek Mythology and Angels. The Sleeping Gods is a bit more angsty too!

Cover/ writing style
I really like the cover, it is mysterious. I like Campbell's writing style and this book is written in the first person POV.

Main character
Lexi would so be my bff.. she is snarky, determined, and strong, yet slightly vulnerable. She was depressed at first, because the love of her life Cole left her, but...more

Favorite Lines “But I cannot smile. Not a real smile. It’s the ‘I’m-really-alright. See-my-mouth-is-turned-up’ smile. Almost fools everyone. I feel like my life is being puppeteered.”

“I love you so much, Lexi. Please don’t ever doubt that again,”


Whew! Thank god! I won't tell you why I'm saying that but OMG thank god!!

Is possible to forget your first love? Can you move on with your life after so much suffering? Would you wake up the gods if that will bring destruction?

These are all questions that Lexi has to deal with in the second book of the series. After been abandoned by Cole, Lexi is depressed, sad and almost living in automatic-pilot. After six months of going by life like a zombie she finally decides to move on with the help of Patrick.

Lexi and Alexander (her twin brother) will join forces with Edmund...more

Well I must say Kristin R. Campbell has done it again and left me in shocked on how she ended Sleeping Gods. Really Kristin you had to do that to me didn't you lol okay back to the review.In this book we see Lexi go through heartbreak and you will see an love triangle as well with Patryck. I don't care for Patryck much but he did do some cool things like travel to the past and where he went and who he took was cool. You have to read it to find out for your self.You also get to meet different God...more

She’s done it again. I must commend Kristin on all the research that must have been involved in writing this series. I appreciate the work she put into this. The way she wove the mythology into daily life was fascinating. The descriptions she used made me feel like I was there seeing it myself. It’s this attention to detail that makes an author stand above the rest. I have to admit I was on the wrong “team” for a while….she’s that good of an author.

This book picks up where Lunangelique left off. Although the editing still needs some work, the second book does not disappoint when it comes to adventure and danger.

Lexi (Alexis) is picking up from a broken heart. One that was broken with good intentions but still broken. Patryck comes in to help her, what a surprise, and gets her to focus on him and getting together with him. Shocker there. in the meantime Cole is still trying to watch over Lexi and misses her. Thinking he is doing the right...more

Ahh where to begin, This book by far the best I've read this year! Keeps me guessing and wanting more!! I love how this book is so different from all the other books I've read. I love how it uses all the God's and goddess. There is a Love triangle short of, and so much confusion with Lexi. I just cant wait til the next book comes out!
Jasmine
SPOILERS!

Starting this book my heart was broken because Cole was gone, but I had a feeling he would be back! I was so happy that he did come back and has been there the whole time! And then at the end when he gave her the ring! I hope he and everyone else will be okay!!! Can't wait to read the 3rd book.
Elizabeth Eagle
Again good. Lots of new characters and wayyyyyyy to much Patrick with Lexi. That shouldn't have lasted as long as it did..... The ending is def a cliff hanger after we hear so much about Zeus it's hard to see what his last words are going to mean..... Are they good or bad??
M.S. Brannon
Wow!! This book is amazing and thank you Kristin R. Campbell for taking me another insane journey. The moment I finished the book I went to Amazon and purchased the final book. It drove me crazy because I couldn't get past the major cliffhanger. Well done my friend!
Keri
I just finished this book and Oh my gods!!!! What an amazing story!!!! I'm SO happy I have book 3 waiting on me!!! What an ending!!!!! My mouth is still on the floor with whoa!!!!! Oh!!! This story!!!! Well done Kristen, well done!!! =^D <3 *quickly picks up book 3*

I received a copy of this story for an honest review for Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock!

Sleeping Gods picks up months after renegade angel Cole abandons his great love Lexi in Lunangelique, the newly identified offspring of Moon Goddess Selene and warrior angel Edmund. Cole’s desertion coupled with the pressure of fulfilling the prophecy of awakening the sleeping ancient Gods trapped by Sun God Helios, crush Lexi and make her a ghost of her former self.

Christine James
Really love this series. At first I wasn't overly sure if I liked Alexis, she seemed too goody goody, but this book shoes that she is more believable. I am now anxiously awaiting the release of the third book.
Kami
I loved this book...took a few hours out of my day off to read it....and I read it all, I couldn't put it down, almost killed my Cell battery cause I was so engrossed in the novel. Cannot wait for book 3
Valeria

In this second installment of the series the plot thickens. We get to know some new characters, and enjoy the appearance of several mythological characters. In the first book, we learned about angels and the beginning of Christianity, but in this book we learn about mythology and most importantly, the consequences the decision to wake up the sleeping gods may entail.

This book had more action and thrill than the first one, and we can see how the story is starting to unravel.

But the ending…OMG! Th...more

Sounds super cool! Totally want to read it! Got an email for it being on a blog tour, but it's the second book in the series so I didn't sign up. ):

Book 2, 4 stars for the story itself.
Alexis still has her anger issues, and it worse. Alex is showing some real personally and backbone, maybe a little bit of a jerk in this book.
Meet more characters, and learn more about everyone. I mean everyone, in Greek Mythology. So be prepared for a Greek lesson. And that's a good thing, you need the little lessons cause you won't be able to keep track of all the names thrown at you!
Twists and turns, deceit and more lies. But it all keeps you glued to the...more

I am loving this series!! Kristin has pulled me into her book once again and it was another wild ride!



Alexis (Lexi) and Alex are finally done with school and are now on the hunt to find a way to release their mother and all the other Gods locked in the mountain. We get to meet LOTS of new Demi Gods, Gods, and other Angels, learn background stories that I didn’t think could get any worse, and explore Europe!

On their journey Lexi is dealing with major heartbreak from Cole leaving and dealing with...more

Come by my blog post for the whole series reviews and excerpts for the Lunangelique Book Tour Here is the Direct Link Lunangelique Series Book Tour Blog Post

This story just keeps getting better and better. I had a big gap of time in reading book one, and this one, just got too busy and never got back to it, so I started this one over, and also read the last few chapters of book one to get my memory triggered, and it worked, and just loved this one. I am now glad I didn’t finish this one back whe...more
Tiffany
Even better than the first, the whole book was great unlike the first where only the last three quarters of the book was enjoyable, My only complaint was that it was a little hard to keep up with all the mythology history. i know a bit of the history and maybe not add much as i should but it was a lot to take in. As some of the other reviewers mentioned Im sure it took a tremendous amount of research for the author and for that i give her a ton of credit.
Brewed Bohemian
Sleeping Gods is the second Lunangelique book in a 3 book series. It is an interesting mix of angelic lore and Greek mythology. This second book had a larger cast of characters; knowing how the main characters pieced together made the new cast fun. It was enjoyable to see how each new god, demigod or angel would change the story.

I'm not a big fan of first person point of view writing and this book had multiple first person views. This made Sleeping Gods less enjoyable for me personally. I also w...more
