內容介紹

守護著我的睡魔啊,請帶我入夢……

睡魔(Sandman)是神話中引誘人類進入夢鄉,並守護人的夢境不受侵害的守護精靈,一位睡魔的任期只有100年,時限到後將進入輪回重新成為人類。睡魔可以在守護對象的夢境中與其見面並交流,但通常他們不會作此選擇,以免與人類產生羈絆。

孤獨的少女Julia並不知道,自己的夢境與人生由一位帥氣的睡魔男生Eron所守護。Eron已經到了“退休”的年紀,只希望自己能夠默默地守護著女孩完成最後一次任務,等待繼任者到來之後順利告老還鄉。然而天有不測風雲,Julia的同學兼男友Griffin在一次意外車禍中不幸去世,突來的變故使本已近乎自閉的Julia更加痛苦。更糟糕的是Griffin成為Julia新的睡魔,為了阻止自己的前死黨勾引女友,他完全棄自己的身份於不顧,想要打破夢境的束縛,和Julia永遠在一起。

為了保護Julia,Eron決定引退前最後一次履行自己的職責。十幾年的守護讓他對這個女孩產生了難以割捨的依戀。於是即將轉生成爲人類的他決定使用自己的能力在Julia的夢境中與其相會,再次保護她。

作者Cyn Balog自09年出版第一本奇幻小説FAIRY TALE之後,受到許多讀者歡迎。趁此風頭Random House于今年再次推出她的新作SLEEPLESS。

作者介紹

While the other neighborhood children were out getting fresh air and sunlight playing Zim Zam and freeze tag, Cyn Balog preferred to be locked in her bedroom, writing. When she emerged, with her growth only slightly stunted, she graduated from Rutgers with a degree in Shoelace Tying or something. She'd wanted to major in Writing, but certain "wise elders" in her life told her that career writers must learn to subsist on three Saltines a day, and being part-Italian, Cyn adamantly refused to give up Pasta Sundays.

Cyn now lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with her husband and daughters. She rarely listens to "wise elders" anymore, still eats pasta regularly and is currently looking for a way to get back her figure, possibly by taking up Zim Zam or freeze tag. Her first novel, FAIRY TALE (Delacorte), is a 2009 RITA finalist in the young adult category, and her second novel, SLEEPLESS, which School Library Journal calls "an interesting, quick-paced, and compelling paranormal romance" and Kirkus calls "a lovely read," released this year. Two more young adult paranormal novels, STARSTRUCK and LIVING BACKWARDS, will be released in 2011 and 2012. Visit her online at www.cynbalog.com.
