Product Description

About the Author

Merita King has loved the science fiction and fantasy genre in both books and movies since she was a young child. She has been greatly inspired by years of watching movies and reading books and has wanted to make a contribution to this genre for many years. Her stories all contain a spiritual thread as she believes that spirituality is universal and crosses all boundaries. She believes that the creative process is largely intuitive and can be very effectively blocked by too much pre-planning. “Plot lines, characters and events all come to me intuitively,” she says, “and this makes the act of writing a constant pleasure.” She lives alone, with her vivid imagination, in Hampshire, UK.

More About the Author

I've loved science fiction since I was a young child growing up with Star Trek and my parents' love of all things connected with space. Whether it was fiction or science fact, if it was about space, the planets, and the universe, they absorbed it and passed on that love to me. I deeply regret being born at a time before space travel is a normal daily event. I have an adventurous spirit and would go into space without a second thought, if the chance came my way.

I can remember being a very young child and looking up at the sky and wondering why my real family left me behind on this planet, and hoping they were coming to get me soon. They never did, but I still have that feeling that I belong out there. I cannot go there of course, but in my books I can. Having grown up on a diet of space opera movies, TV and books, it was a foregone conclusion that it I ever wrote a book, it would be space opera. Many books later and I'm still enjoying exploring my very own universe.

When building my alien worlds, I am inspired by movies I've seen in the genre, rather than books I've read. I guess I'm a visual person, and people often say my books read like movies, that they 'see' a movie in their head as they're reading. I like that, I'm happy that happens. It is very important to me that anything I invent in my future universe, gadgets, gizmos, diseases etc, have a basis in today's known science fact. I research and begin with a known fact, then build from there. I feel that this helps to make my worlds believable for the reader. The great thing about space opera is that you can invent stuff, but if you're too fantastical you risk losing your reader's attention.

I'm autistic and live inside my head more so than those who don't have this condition. Interacting on a very deep level with my imagination is necessary for my mental health, so I find connecting with the flow of creative force, very easy. Away from writing, I enjoy making Native American inspired beaded pow wow fans, and I'm a crazy cat lady in training. I live alone with my two cats and a very vivid imagination, in Hampshire Southern England.


My books are available in paperback and kindle from Amazon uk and Amazon usa and from most internet suppliers.

I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review.

Having read the first book I had high expectations for this the second book in the series, I was certainly not left disappointed.
What a wonderful second book. It was great to see how far Farra and Vincent and got on re-building their home to be and village as an unusual disease sweeps across the whole of Lilea that the Lilean's have come to call "The Sleeping".
It turn's out that once again they must risk their lives and fight the Transmortals in the Land of the Dead. I love how Dr Jam play's a bigger role in this book and how his story unfolds.
This is action packed and one hell of a gripping read, I cannot wait to read the third book :)
This is a MUST read for anyone

HASH(0x9045ff78) out of 5 stars AN EXCITING ADDITION TO THIS SERIES!! 30 Oct. 2012
By Books4Tomorrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Evil has a nasty habit of resurfacing and in "The Sleeping" this quickly becomes apparent to Vincent, Farra and their old friends, The Drycenians. Not even a year had passed since the Lileans started to repatriate to their own planet, and the spirit guides are disappearing; people are falling into a very deep sleep and soon all power sources on Lilea cut out. With the Lileans in mortal peril and those who can't be used by the transmortal spirits having their heads messed with, it is up to the Drycenians to hasten to the rescue.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and could hardly put it down. Thrilling action and nail-biting suspense are beautifully balanced by some tender, romantic scenes and frequent humorous moments. A touch of spirituality brings depth to the story and I was truly moved by the caring and love the characters show towards one another.

For those who love the technical details of a high-tech space environment, there is plenty to grip your imagination in this novel. The author cleverly inserts world building and information concerning the history of the various races into the book without compromising the flow of the story. The wonderfully crafted characters, already dear to me from the first book in this series, "Redemption", now feel like old friends and I hope we'll get to read more about them in future books.

I would advise readers to read the first book in the series before reading "The Sleeping". I happily give this marvelously written book five stars and hope that more of the same will soon come our way. (Ellen Fritz)
