Praise for the The Sleeping Serpent


A gripping debut of compelling prose so powerful it will ingrain its web of deceit and narcissism into the deepest, most precious and sacred parts of your soul.

It took me a little while to get into the story. I felt that the feel and pace was somewhat slow to start with, but, once the characters began to unfold and their lives started to unravel before me, I relaxed more into the style of the authors writing and began to enjoy it more.

Not knowing much about yoga styles and its effects myself, a lot of the descriptive dialogue and explanations were hard to imagine and understand, but I tried and took it slowly trying to involve myself completely in the way that Kundalini yoga works and feels. I think it helps to get to grips with the story if you know something about yoga.

Luna loves her husband Tyler, but feels she needs more in her life….but what is missing, why does she feel so lost? All the women in the story fall completely for Nico Romero. I cannot believe that these women come back time and time again after the way that this yoga guru treats them all, even if he is devastatingly beautiful and a sex god. He definitely has issues, these are apparent quite soon into the story. Nico quickly turns from a likeable, charming, sexy man who is expert in his field, to nasty, manipulative and violent person at times. Quite disturbing too, the way that he ‘cords’ his victims is compelling to say the least.

A lot of the book is erotically written and very descriptive sexually, so you will need to be quite open to reading this style.

I would recommend the book, especially if you are into your yoga and can really understand all the ‘ins and outs’ of what it all means. It will keep you reading, you feel that strong urge to find out what happens and need to keep picking it up and read ‘just that little more’.

I would have given the book 5 stars if I understood all the texts on yoga and its history.

This beautifully written, hot, gripping story sucks you in, deeper and deeper much like the character of Nico. Nico is enticing, he knows exactly what women 'need' and his yoga and healing centre is how he seduces them. He's a Svengali figure, preying on the insecurities and self doubt of the women he 'uses'. I felt as if I could really empathise with the emotions of the procession of women Nico seduces and conquers.

Luna is sensing the passing of the years, feeling at odds with life. Nico's ability to suck in the women he wants is cleverly described through the emotions of those women but Luna is harder to capture, she's married for a start and wiser, more worldly. But capture her he does, slowly through friendship, using her need to help him and her growing love for him.

Luna knows her dependence on Nico's approval is wrong, it's a craving she can never satisfy, but it takes a long time for her to act on that knowledge and seek help. Nico's control is likened to a vampire sucking her life-force, a psychic attack. When Nico tries to make their relationship sexual and becomes abusive Luna is shocked and uncomfortable. As Nico's behavior spirals out of control can Luna escape?

This book is not always easy to read, it made me go through every emotion I had at my disposal! But I felt compelled to bear witness to Luna's story, her descent and subsequent fight for freedom.

***I would like to thank the author for the opportunity to review a copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.***

The Sleeping Serpent: by Luna Saint Claire a hard hitting four-star read. This book is a stand-alone book, that isn’t suitable for everyone as it does contain scenes of violence, drug abuse and sexual content and domestic abuse. This book is where the author shows you the story behind the abuse, and answers the question many people ask, Why would you stay in an abusive relationship?
The story is centred on Luna Saint Claire, a happily married woman with a great job that she loves as a costume designer on a show that looks set to become the next sex and the city. On paper, she should be happy, but something is niggling at her, not sure what it is, but finding herself becoming invisible in her own world, she knows her husband loves her, but as a lecturer he is expected to produce text books and is in the middle of finishing one. Knowing she needs to relive the boredom, but not having enough hours in the day, she finds herself visiting with a yoga guru who agrees that he can help her find what she is missing for a sum of money that she balks at, at first but then realises that it’s worth it if she is happy in the end. The Yoga guru is Nico Romero, a charismatic man who it seems can get any woman he wants to do whatever he wants, he sucks them in by being the perfect gentleman and his natural sexual appeal and charisma, until he has them in his web, then he uses affection, sex, threats and coercion to make the women in his life do what he wants. To further his plans for celebrity, wealth and power.
The story is so well written that you can see it unfolding and watch as Luna falls deeper and deeper, even when she knows it’s unreasonable, she can’t stop herself, or the other women he has sucked in.
