Blurb:
When Neil’s past catches up to him, Kelsey must choose between her new family and an old love…

With tensions rising between the Council and demonkind, Kelsey finds herself investigating a series of murders that threaten the fragile truce between them. If she can’t stop these killings soon, they could ignite a fire sure to burn the supernatural world down.

Unfortunately for her, Kelsey’s problems don’t stop with a pile of dead halflings. Her connection with Marcus is frayed at best, and Gray hasn’t been heard from in months. Her only semblance of peace comes from a new man in her life. When Gray storms back into the picture, her love life goes from incredibly complicated to apocalyptic.

Just as Kelsey begins to unravel the mystery, the forces of Heaven decide to take an interest in her actions. Outclassed with these powers in play, Kelsey knows that one misstep could leave the human and supernatural worlds in ashes.

I’m not normally a fan of paranormal romance, but in the Thieves series, Lexi Blake sweeps the reader along in a tour de force of delightful characters, complex plots, and tender romance, sweetened with a sprinkle of humor. In addition, we have angels, demons, vampires, shifters, and possibly other out of this world creatures, living on different planes, but intersecting on earth. Sleeper is the third entry in the series that deals with Kelsey, the Hunter who protects the king of the vampires. Kelsey loves Grayson, a half-demon half human, but there are other men in her life. Can she and Grayson work out their issues and accept that Kelsey needs more than one lover to keep her grounded? And can Kelsey find a way to keep the secret about the king’s son, while battling the forces of Heaven itself?

Kelsey is such a kickass person-agile, smart, and a fighter, but also someone who cares for others enough to protect them. Although this book is ostensibly about her and Grayson, he plays less of a role in this book than he did in the previous books. Marcus also plays less of a role, but we learn more about her other lover.

There are surprises throughout the entire book, including the secret about who Zoey, Kelsey and several of the other characters are descended from. It’s hard to talk about the plot without spoilers, so I’m not going to say anything else about it.

Just know the characters are fascinating, the plot drives the story along to the point you don’t want to put the book down, and although the sex scenes are hot, they don’t take over the story-even with a menage. It takes a very talented author to carry off creating a new world order and making it believable and Lexi Blake has loads of talent!
