Here’s the set-up for Jacki O’Dierno’s Sleep Stalkers, just $2.99 on Kindle:
A new plague is ravaging the country, but the infected are not so much sick as they are homicidal. Demons have begun escaping their prison and found a way into our world through the slumbering minds of humans.
Dee works alone and has ever since her father was killed. She is one of the strongest of her kind, set apart from the rest by a secret that haunts her every waking moment. Yet, her solitary existence is suddenly shattered when a dark force gathers in the streets of Cleveland.
Rather unexpectedly, Dee finds herself paired with two others of her kind, each struggling with the paths set before them. Dave, a father who has lost his child, and Luke, the one person who may be able to save her soul. Together they help her delve into the very core of evil that plagues the country and, through bloodshed and heart break, realize just far they’ll have to go to save that which they love the most.

A unique approach to the dystopian genre. Let me first say how much I loved this book! Jacki O’ Dierno has created a very creepy, very realistic dystopia. Her method of plot building flowed so smoothly; it was very difficult to put down. – Pyxi Rose
What a great paranormal story with some religious fiction aspects that will leave you on the edge of your seat, unable to put it down! I definitely recommend it! – Shannon Keith
Just saying you might want to say a prayer and keep hope in your heart before sleep! To me a book that gets me that emotionally involved is a definite winner. I will definitely be watching for more from Jacki O’Dierno’s work in the future and should this world continue in future writings, can I just say one thing, flamethrowers LOL. – Denise
I adored this book. Its graphic battle scenes and basic religious premise left me breathless and on the edge of my chair. This is one book where you might want to leave the light in the hallway burning. It is fast paces, action packed and the author voices a belief is the similarity of numerous religious affiliates that I have been trying to convey to friedns for years. She created three of the most amazing and memmorable characters ever and I for one, will not be picking a fight with Dee anytime soon. – WandaHart
I would recommend this book as a must read to everybody. It was interesting, engaging and somewhat of a reality check. That combined with the fact that it made me rethink some of my own choices makes this an absolute brilliant read. Oh and to the faint of heart, a word of advice. Keep the light on………. – Wanda
