She’s a dreamweaver at odds with her king. He's a prince, a broken royal unable to love. Can they survive a celestial nightmare?

With rebellion brewing in his empire, Prince Kovis believes the unexpected appearance of an alluring woman is a rebel plot unfolding.

torture and abuse trigger warning but amazing!!!

love the sweetness of the romance! The fantasy world is sooooo great!! It's so different from anything else I've read!
I love that the couple doesn't fight for most of the the book Unlike a lot of romance novels. It's also not full of the f word.! But the book does have some torture and abuse scenes

Brilliant!!

After reading the Empire of Glass series, I was very excited to listen to this spinoff. The narrator as always was spot on. The characters are so detailed and thought out. The world building is phenomenal. I don’t think I could have loved this novel more. Can’t wait to listen to the remaining books in the series.

another fabulous series by this author & narrator

an amazing introduction to the Dreamweaver world which we glimpsed into in her other series God of Secrets. I really like how well she builds these worlds and draws you in as well as the character building that invests you in these characters and what happens to them. Highly recommend her books and this narrator does a great job with the audio books!

Enchanting!

What a fabulous story! Lullaby takes place in an adult fantasy world where our imaginations are all we need. This is the story of a young, immortal Sand Maiden in Dream Realm who weaves thoughts through dreams each night for her human prince so that he may sleep soundly. Alissandra is a Sand Maiden whose father is a despot god who wants to control the human charges from Wake Realm, but Ali fights him, and she won't let him take Prince Kovis from her. She has every intention of following Kovis to the Wake Realm, and safety, even if it means becoming mortal. She and Kovis successfully escape to Wake Realm, but Ali has to learn how to live in a body she doesn't recognize and a land that bears no resemblance to her own. Ali and Kovis have a special bond and she has known all of his dreams from even before he was born. He is the most powerful person in the Realm, but Ali's just discovering her new powers. They're unlike anything she knew as an immortal, and her life is going to depend on how well she can learn to use them. The characters are all multi-layered and the pace is perfect from the first page to the last.
Sarah Kisko does a phenomenal job with the narration. Her dynamic and well-modulated voice gives each of the characters an individual attitude and unique personality as she brings them to life. As a special touch, she sweetly sings the lullabies of the Sand Maiden.

2 Abusive Kings and the Children scared by them.

Wow! I was surprised by how some reviewers disliked this Story. Our MC a Sandmaiden gives up her Immortality to be away from a Power Hungery abusive father and to be with the dream being she has been assigned since before his birth. She has also developed strong feelings for this Dream being named Kovis. While Kovis and Kennan dealt with their father, after he lost his wife In childbirth delivering the twins and became abusive. The Twins try to protect their sister from continuous Parental sexual abuse. This is the background of this story and goes forward from there. Narrator does a good job with the characters and storylines.

Single narration. Does a great job.

I really really liked this one!
What a great start to a series!
The side characters are great as well as the h and H whom have great backstories and are awesome together.
I’m really looking forward to being able to continue this series as it comes to audio.
4/4.5 stars
Smut level isn’t high, I would say category would be NA low end. Trigger warnings needed for abuse and implied rape, sexual abuse however are flash backs.

I loved this book

This is the first time I've had the pleasure of listening to L.R.W. Lee, and I have to say it was a great introduction to her work, and Sarah Kisko did an amazing job bringing it to life.

Okay as long as narrator isn't singing...

This is a tough read due to:
-It’s slow-paced.
-Lacks character development.
-Lacks world-building.
-Characters lack individuality, with few exceptions.
-Plausibility at times, continuity at others.

I think the premise is fairly interesting and either a more-skilled writer … or a strong editing team could’ve made more of it. For me, it was pretty underwhelming.

2.5 stars.


Audio:
Most of the time, the narrator was fine, not one I’d seek out, but okay enough to listen to. However, every time she sang, I felt like I was being tortured. Absolutely awful.

Imaginative!

Lullaby took me by surprise; I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did. L.R.W. Lee is a creative and imaginative author, creating a riveting world with fascinating characters. Lullaby is an excellent start to the Sand Maiden series. However, the pace is on the slow side. Even so, I really enjoyed the story.

Sarah Kisko's narration was excellent. She portrayed the characters and emotions very nicely. Overall, this is a well-written paranormal fantasy romance. I'm defiantly looking forward to the second book in the Sand Maiden series.
