We aren’t a we without all of us.

Chaos reigns in The Sleepless City and it’s really beginning to piss Detective Jonas Forge off.

3.25 ⭐️

I was really looking forward to completing this series, and while I liked parts of this book there were also parts that didn’t work at all.

I liked the bones of the story and the character development. I thought the character arcs were all done well and I was happy with where it ended.

To me the formatting let it down majorly.
I was under the impression that Italics are used to differentiate when the character is having either a dream sequence or revisiting m

THIS is what I wanted to read for Forge and Blair, especially since I was left so...unsettled with how their relationship ended after their first book together. This really shows them getting into their relationship and becoming equals, partners, and totally on the same page with each other. I also liked that Ben and Simon and Declan and Lucas were so involved in this one too, and that friendships were really forming between Declan and Lucas and Forge and Blair all together. I really, really enj ...more

Elizabeth Noble delivers lot’s of surprises and reveals with the final intriguing novel for “The Sleepless City” series.

As Jonas Forge is seeing the happy paired off couples of Simon and Ben and Lucas and Declan, he’s very moody and not in a good way. Forge’s union with Blair is still very fragile. Forge has been stressed out with Blairs leaving to take care of family business. He promised to give Blair space and he fears that Blair won’t return to Boggslake. Even in the midst of the rash of ac

This book is getting a re-write, a re-edit and a new cover. Look for added chapters and scenes.

Here's a little bit of a newly added scene:

Resting a hand on Jonas’s shoulder, Declan gave a squeeze. “Why don’t you…”

“No,” Jonas snapped. He met Declan’s gaze then looked away at once. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean…”

“I know. What can I do?”

Jonas shook his head. “Nothing. I can’t do anything either. He went home, no he went back to his dad’s home. He wanted to go alone, and I promised to give him the time

A truely marvelous end to a great story line. All the hot men have mated and in the hunt for the serial killer they unite the communities together. A must read as a series. Well done.
Reviewed at The Blogger Girls.

4.5 stars

I’m not going to recap the story because I feel like that’ll give away some things…. and I also think the blurb does a pretty good job of summing up what this one is about. What I will say is that I was pretty surprised with all the secrets between Declan, Forge and Simon. I figured since they’ve known each other for decades, they’d know everything about one another so it was a pleasant surprise to realize there were a few things that were still a secret be

Anne Barwell and Elizabeth Noble. have written a four-book urban fantasy series titled The Sleepless City. The series takes place in Boggslake, Ohio (not NYC). Boggslake is a small town with big city paranormal problems. Vampire, werewolves, and demons oh my! I found it interesting that the authors wrote two books each yet there is wonderful continuity throughout the series.

The series is comprised of four books featuring three couples:

The beginning of this book had me feeling kind of crazy. Just like what was happening with the characters. Something was happening to cause them all to have these weird hallucinations or memories. Some memories were even altered. You weren't quite sure what was going g on, but I immediately put it up to the demon messing with them and us.

I love the folklore and old Native traditions that run through this series. Even with how Declan came to be and his maker, it's all very loving, natural, and r

Shifting Chaos by author Elizabeth Noble is well and interesting read. I really felt like it was a book in progress already, but I eventually caught on. Had to “run a little” to do it but I did. I suggest not being me and starting with book four. Yeah no, you will get it but you’re going to feel a little like you’re in an already started story.
Okay characters always a great place to start.

I would recommend that you read the previous books in the series before starting Shifting Chaos as it almost feels the story comes full circle and then brings us back to the present with a bit more clarity.

There isn’t as much romance in this book. It’s more a look back in time to fill in some of the gaps and in doing so it uncovers some pretty heavy secrets that Blair and Forge in particular never wanted their friends to learn. These secrets are compounded by a pa

From a fairly light read in the first book to characters one can get into in this most recent book, I'm not only impressed, but have become a fan. The cover doesn't do the story justice at all. There should be a group portrait of the family for this book: Lucas & Declan, Ben & Simon, Blair & Forge, Mr. Boggs, and Forge's dog, Moose. I hope there are more books in the series. ...more

Our boys have all mated, but are not necessarily “settled”. Forge and Blaire are still working on their trust issues and this book focuses on their relationship.

There’s another “mystery” to solve, this time involving a creature that causes paranormals to attack one another without provocation.

The creature attacks Forge, forcing him to reveal some “truths” he had hoped to keep to himself.

There is quite a bit of back history relayed, mostly from Declan about Forge’s early days and some about Decl

This is the fourth book in a 4 book series about 3 couples. The first 3 books are each about a separate couple and it's own full romance; however, they all live together in a "castle" in a town off Lake Erie, so their stories are vastly intertwined. You really do need to read them in order and read all 4 if you want to solve the ultimate mystery going on in the background of the stories.

All the MC's are great (although calling one character Jonas and Forge gets confusing), they are a little (or

I haven't read others in this series and I didn't feel lost. This also happens to be my first Elizabeth Noble novel.

I was impressed with the amount of details the story contained. It is captivating with some twists that keep your brain on edge.

There was an intensity simmering below the surface through the book. Blair and Forge are a force to be reckoned with. Plenty of vampires and wolves in a Fantasy world that I was completely

So sorry to see this series end, I loved all the characters and even the secondary ones. A brilliant collaboration between two authors,Anne Barwell and Elizabeth Noble. I will be definitely be reading them now.

I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves Gay Fantasy,Vampires & Weres.

Loved the writing and story but the italics almost ruined this book. It may just be my kindle version but about half the book was italicized for no reason. I don't think I'll be reading this one again - not worth the irritation. ...more

While I loved this series as a whole, I found this book to be the weakest of the four. Strong start to the series, but weak finish.

With this being the 4th book in the series, and having not read the previous books, this one was a challenge.

Great addition to the Sleepless City series. This time the vampires, werewolf, human and ghost fight a demon. Very exciting.
