+Received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

CHARACTERS: The main character is Bryony "Bryn" Winters,

I couldn't stop thinking about the characters and loved the relationship ...more

Molly Fennig’s debut novel, In Somnus, has a solid story. Nonetheless, there are real problems; this book is more of a first step in her inchoate writing journey, rather than a true showcase.

The premise behind In Somnus is essentially quite simple: there are people in the world who have special abilities, be it healing, the manipulation of light or electricity, or even mind control. But there is another element of complexity—as these abilities generally manifest most strongly in sleep. This is w
