    The world of Lullaby has a lot of potential. From Dream to Wake, immortal gods and goddesses to mortal sorcerers and insorcelled, a realm without “magic” to a land blessed with it by the mysterious Canyon, the universe that L.R.W. Lee created is teeming with endless possibilities. That potential is what drove me through this first installment in The Sand Maiden chronicle, and while I did find a fair share of characters that I took a particula...

    Oh, I have a lot to say about this book...Review to come!
  • Shelby Palmer
    The writing was choppy and confusing. DNF for me.

    Note: I received an ARC copy of this book from the author. This in no way influences my opinion.I was a bit on the fence about reading this book. I wasn't entirely sure if it sounded like it was going to be my kind of thing, but after discussing it over with a friend, I decided to go for it and applied for ARC when they opened up. Unfortunately, this turned out to be not really my cup of tea and I ended up DNFing it about 30 percent of the way th...

    “I believed creativity to be the expression of the person, who they were inside. Evil didn't create beauty like this.”I really enjoyed this book! Even though I had a few issues with the overall plot, it was a super fun read and I literally devoured it in like two sittings😂 The ending got me really intrigued though, I can’t wait for the next one!3.75/5★★★
  • Samantha Zeman
    This story is a wonderfully fresh take on the Sandman (Sand maiden) and it was fabulous!First I'd like to say thank you to L.R.W. Lee for providing such an awesome opportunity to allow some of us, myself included, to receive an ARC! So, thank you so much! Below is my honest review.The characters development was wonderful, especially Kovis. He grew so much from the beginning before he knew Ali. Ali truly was what he needed to break through the wal...

    I am changing my rating from 3.5 to 4 stars. I went back from the start to take note of lines that left me an impact. And I realized I enjoyed more of the story in this quick re-read. The realms the characters are in are truly unique. Also, if I can't move on from this particular scene in the book then I must have been imbued and captivated right? I would seriously love to find out more of what happens to Kennan to Ali and Kovis and how they woul...
  • Jessica Paratchek
    There are two big things to be mentioned when reviewing this book. One is that it is a romance story. I had to somewhat reorganize my expectations about five chapters into it because I did not know the romance would be a main plot point. Once I did realized that though I started to enjoy the journey a bit more if that makes sense. Nothing wrong with a good romance fantasy, in fact they are some of my favorites! I just like it better when I know t...
  • Elizabeth De Guzman
    I just finished reading Lullaby and WOW! this book gave me the feels, and the characters are interesting more and more as you dive in to the story. I was lucky to have an ARC, and now I can't wait to have this series added to my shelves. Seriously, I can't wait for book 2. I already miss Ali and Kovis. To L.R.W. Lee thank you for introducing me to another world that I would love to explore in. Planning on re-reading it tonight. :)
  • Andrea
    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review and I would like to say I definitely liked this book but I would give it about 3.5 stars and here is why:First, the plot itself is really unique and I loved the idea behind it. The magic system is one of my favorites in the books that I have read recently. I do love the fact that there are non magic wielding cities as well with their own rules and traditions. I would LOOOOVE if the next book had ...

    ****I was given a review copy of this book in return for my honest review****Lullaby was on my Amazon wish list long before I was offered a review copy and so when that chance arose I grabbed it with both hands, and oh my am I glad I did. A wonderfully created world sees the reader move from the Dream Realm to the Wake Realm as the main character, Ali flees from her Sandman father. Once in Wake we meet well rounded characters who you cannot help ...

    I received an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of the book Lullaby. Which (just in case you don't know) means I received a copy of the book before it's official release date. Lullaby is being released on the 15th of January 2018. In exchange for receiving this book, I am giving an honest review! This is the first ARC I have ever gotten and I'm glad to have been one of the lucky ones who received a copy!Lullaby is a fantasy, romance, New Adult novel...
  • Ashley
    I felt so lucky to receive an ARC from L.R.W Lee. My first arc ever!So here is my honest review. I really enjoyed the book. I think the story and the way it's presented is unique. I'd love to know more about Ali's world, but I'm sure that is to come! The character development was done well. I especially love Ali and her sweet demeanor, but she is also so forward, especially with Kovis. Lol. I can't wait for the next book!
  • Cassandra
    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!The cover is perfect for this new world and intriguing!This is the first book in a new series that is considered New Adult which means you should be at least 18 to read this series due to the mature content.Wow, this book was intense...
  • Solaris
    Thank you to LRW Lee for entrusting her hard work to me for review. I have read the 2nd edition of this book, which includes additional footage. The narration and sentence structure flowed very well. **Alissandra, a sand maiden, finds herself very rudely awakened in Wake Realm: the opposite reality of her own Dream Realm. Ali, her dreambeam Prince Kovis, and his twin Prince Kennan, must all find a way to stop the ruler of Dream Realm from conquer...
  • Stephanie
    Let’s begging this review by explaining my rating progress here 1 stars out of FiveI’ve heard a decent amount of buzz surrounding this book from the bookstagram community on Instagram and I feel the the buzz came more from the fact that the cover art of this book was contributed by the amazing Charlie Bowter the women who lends her art style to Sarah J Maas Acotar series. As well for the fact as this book immediately labeled itself as New Adu...
  • Pamela
    I read books like this for fun and entertainment, so I usually give high rates when I like the story and it captivates me, even when I don’t actually agree with/like every part of it. I really liked this book, but it does have some issues. I know we can’t possibly love all stories and we won’t agree with every part of all books we read, but I wish this story was… I don’t know… more. It deserved more. The short version? It needs more...
  • Cabiria Aquarius
    Lullaby was a very fascinating tale and an interesting take on things. The idea of Sand Men and Sand Maidens was very cool. And this story honestly had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. I had difficulty putting it down and the characters oh my. Ali sounds like such a brave and strong person. To give up what you know. That takes guts. The royal siblings are close. Which is nice. I love it. She’s been through a lot just to survive ...
  • Kayla
    Really interesting concept, I can't wait to find out what happens in book #2. Some of the writing was over written, especially the beginning chapters. Once I got through that I enjoyed it!
  • Adriana Pena
    This book has everything in one that I love Fantasy, Romance, Action and a Strong Female lead. I enjoyed every second of this book. I can't wait for the 2nd book of the trilogy!!
