THE SLEEPING TOWN, by F.A.R., Self-Published



It all began the day Michael Walker woke up and everyone else didn’t.

The small town of Redfield has changed. The uncanny has become common, the truth remains elusive, and the line between friend and foe is blurry at best. In order to save his friends and family, Michael Walker must enter into a world like none he has seen before, one where a single misstep could mean the end of everything.

When wizards play their games, those without power are sure to lose.

Alternating POV and first person narrative… I was okay with the alternating POV, but struggled with staying invested with the first person.

Entertaining concept, original magic system well described, weak world building and setting set-up. I found myself intrigued enough to keep reading and wanting to know what was going to happen next, but also found myself pulled from the story by misuse of filler material that I could live without. It was hard to become engaged again from these plot holes, but I managed to carry through to the end regardless.

A good first book for the author and worthy of a read. Very suspenseful and mysterious at times.

I gave this book:
