What inspired me to write Lullaby?
I was hunting for a "big" idea for a new series and was wiping sleep from my eyes one morning and the whole idea of the Sandman dawned on me. Taking that further, I swapped out the man for a maiden and not long after I merged it with Morpheus, Greek god of dreams, since both mythic characters center around dreams and dreaming, something many are fascinated by. At the time the #MeToo movement was growing and I saw this series as an opportunity to offer real help/hope to those affected. It is my sincere desire that this series be a help to reframe the abuse and empower victims to cope.

Alissandra’s immortal and wasn’t supposed to fall in love with her human dream charge, but they share wounded pasts and he’s the first to understand her pain. For his part, the prince has experienced his share of loss and betrayal and has erected barriers to protect his wounded heart–while these barriers guard, they also prevent him from experiencing love.

No one says, no, to the king. So when Morpheus, god of dreams as well as Ali’s father and sovereign, starts pressuring her to help him conquer mortal dreams making humans mindless slaves, she flees Dream Realm for Wake Realm to save the prince she loves, as well as all humans.

What Ali can’t anticipate is that political opponents in the prince’s kingdom will use her as a pawn in their quest to usurp power from the monarchy. Sensing the prince has more than a passing interest in the new arrival, they force her into a brutal competition that only the winner will walk away from.

If you love to hate supernatural bullies, empathize with wounded souls finding love, and cheer for the underdog you’ll devour this tale of Morpheus, Greek god of dreams, by USA Today Bestselling author L. R. W. Lee. It’s a slow-burn, fated mates, fantasy romance with potent sorcery and mythical intrigue.

    Fantastic Spinoff Series
    Love a good spinoff series. Was extremely excited to learn more about dream world as I learned all about wake realm in Empire of Glass.

    The characters are well written. The story is engaging. And the narrating is short on. I can not say enough about this story.

  2. escritora (verified owner)

    What a fabulous story! Lullaby takes place in an adult fantasy world where our imaginations are all we need. This is the story of a young, immortal SandMaiden in Dream Realm who weaves thoughts through dreams each night for her human prince so that he may sleep soundly. Alissandra is a SandMaiden whose father is a despot god who wants to control the human charges from Wake Realm, but Ali fights him and she won’t let him take Prince Kovis from her. She has every intention of following Kovis to the Wake Realm, and safety, even if it means becoming mortal. She and Kovis successfully escape to Wake Realm, but Ali has to learn how to live in a body she doesn’t recognize and a land that bears no resemblance to her own. Ali and Kovis have a special bond and she has known all of his dreams from even before he was born. He is the most powerful person in the Realm, but Ali’s just discovering her new powers. They’re unlike anything she knew as an immortal, and her life is going to depend on how well she can learn to use them. The characters are all multi-layered and the pace is perfect from the first page to the last.
    Sarah Kisko does a phenomenal job with the narration. Her dynamic and well-modulated voice gives each of the characters an individual attitude and unique personality as she brings them to life.

    Sand Maiden’s Book 1

    I loved this story. It was a passionate and unusual New Adult book. Although the title page says its book 2, It really is book 1. This is the first book I have read by L. R. W. Lee and it looks like he (she?) has written many. Mostly YA books about fantasy. This fantasy book was well written and engaging with great world world building. It was also fast paced and exciting.

    Interesting story
    November 26, 2021
    Verified Purchase
    It’s an interesting storyline that takes chaos between two realms, the Dream and the Waking realm, and blends them with the growing uneasy between the “blessed magiced” people and the non- magic people.

    Caught in the middle are Kovis and Ali, each from different realms, but with a bond that defies logic. Fleeing her father’s evil machinations, Ali soon finds herself once again just another piece in someone else’s game. But with Kovis at her, she just might survive.

    It’s a story that holds possibilities and intrigue going forward

    Where the Waking and Dreaming Worlds Collide
    November 19, 2020
    Though slow to start, Lullaby evolved into an engaging and intriguing story. Tragic pasts and reluctance to communicate are de rigeur for nearly all the characters, but I appreciated how each one – particularly Alissandra – was able to learn and grow and become better all-around people. Ali starts the book naïve, headstrong, and unwilling to admit any shortcomings. It was those traits that actually made the plot move so slowly for me at the beginning, rather than any troubles with pacing or worldbuilding. I had such a hard time connecting to her in any way. Fortunately, she vastly improves throughout the course of the story – which is why I not only finished the book, but enjoyed it.

    The differing Wake and Dream realms are a fascinating new type of fantastic setting. The dichotomy of the how each realm works was wonderfully constructed.

    I am looking forward to the next installment in Alissandra and Kovis’s tale.

    Interesting story with sensitive themes
    October 30, 2020
    *I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.*

    Before beginning the review, I want to start off with being clear that this book contains sexual abuse and physical abuse triggers.

    That being said I was delightfully surprised with this story. To be honest, the first two chapters I found difficult to get into. You’re thrown into the main characters mind and even she is confused about what is going on. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, please stick it out! The confusion clears and this book roped me in to the point I couldn’t put it down!

    The two main characters had both experienced an abundance of abuse and this has fundamentally changed and hardened them. Lullaby does not glorify the abuse, but rather paints it in a realistic light of the trials and tribulations that survivors face when attempting to move on with their life. This alone is an incredibly powerful and sensitive message to deliver, but done with immense tact by L. R. W. Lee.

    The romance and friendships was strong and had me immersed in the plot.

    A big reveal at the end of the book has me excited to see what the sequel will bring!

    Awesome Story
    October 27, 2020
    This is by far one of the best stories I’ve come across that ain’t Shifter based. The story of Ali and Klovis is amazing and how far they come. From being interrogated to being his bride. The struggles that this couple go through is downright scary. I mean, how could you be with someone who knows your entire life, yet you know hardly anything about them? For Klovis it takes quite a lot of convincing and some struggles because of his past. Same goes for Ali. Even though she’s loved Klovis since he was an infant. She still doubts herself because of her father. L. R. W. does a good job in describing her characters. There’s only one downside. There’s not quite enough detail, but the plot still earned a five star review.

    Surprisingly well written
    August 9, 2020
    At first I thought the character was a simpleton, and wasn’t sure I’d like this book.
    However the author creatively wrote this character to be that on purpose. Through the book you grow with the characters and they’ve written it well!
    So refreshing that a romance builds over time and doesn’t resort to sex right away as most do these days.

    However, the CONSTANT phrase of “flicked his/her/my eyebrows” got old fast. Really overdone to an irritating point.

    I don’t think there is a book she has written that I don’t like so far!!! I put this on my TBR list. Wished I had read it sooner. Am so glad there’s a second book out to continue this fantastic story. I’m totally rooting for these two. Lol. I don’t like giving anything away but this is a must read. It’s different from anything I have read which makes it more fun. Coming from an abusive family I felt like I could relate to the characters and feel their pain but celebrate their victories too!! I adore you Me Lee!!!

    Fresh fantasy, good read
    March 27, 2020
    I loved this story. I think the concept of dream realm and wake realm is a fresh take on fantasy novels. The story had a bit of a slow start, but the information was necessary as the novel progressed. The finale was AMAZING! The romance in it was subtle through most of the book, but intensified at the end. I can’t wait to read the next book!

    Very well-written, cannot wait for more!
    March 19, 2020
    I loved everything about this book. The world building was absolutely beautiful and I loved the main character. This was a completely different concept from what you see normally and that is what really made me enjoy it. I have always had a fondness for Sandman lore, and this just spoke levels to me in how creative it was in taking that lore and turning it into something else. I need the second book NOW after reading this and I CANNOT wait!

    A definite must-read for lovers of fantasy and Greek mythology!!
    March 18, 2020
    I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

    In this world, Greek mythology takes on a whole new spin. Here good and evil collides, power plays are an everyday thing and magic is rooted in the elements. Oh, and there are gods and kingdoms and princes…

    What happens when the daughter of the Dream Realm god decides to become human to protect the Wake Realm from him? Add to that the fact that she has only known Dream Realm all her life and almost kills a prince (whom she cares for) when she accidentally ‘fell’ to Wake Realm.

    You get Alissandra (Ali) and a whole lot of confusion…

    This world is rich, full of wonder and a place I could easily imagine. There is something for everyone; mystery, a quest, deceit, great character development, romance, and action.

    The characters all seemed to leap right off the pages, with backstories that shaped who they now are, struggles and obstacles to overcome.

    A good book.
    January 31, 2020
    Lullaby was an interesting reading, but unfortunately the author’s originality intermingled with a few clichés especially in the construction of the main characters’s relationship, as well as in the case of the external conflict.
    In some sections of the book the pace seemed to be too fast, a fact that resulted in a Mary Sue type of protagonist.

    Loved it!
    November 13, 2019
    I didn’t really have any expectations going into this book. The idea seemed promising, though, so I jumped in. I’m so glad I did! The story jumped right in, not even bothering with introductions or build up (those came later). There was conflict, character development, a new world to dive into, vivid imagery – honestly, it was incredible! The only thing stopping this from being a five-star review is one bit of conflict that never felt fully resolved – a secret that wasn’t exposed and dealt with. I won’t give spoilers because it’s an incredible read, but I am hoping that this particular bit makes itself known in one of the next books.

    A brand-new take on the supernatural romance that will keep you up til the last page!
    November 8, 2019
    Mrs. Lee really blew me away with her refreshing new take on a paranormal romance. I also loved the genius way she used an old myth we all know from childhood, the “Sandman”, but weaved it and molded an entire world and mythos of her own from it. Ali is a Sandmaiden, who has been the weaver of Prince Kovis of Altairn’s dreams since he was born. When Ali finds out her father wants to take over the Prince’s kingdom and possibly harm him, she decides to escape from Dreamrealm and sacrifice her immortality to save the man she loves. Kovis, who is the prince of a magic wielding people, is guarded well by his twin brother and their guards. When they find Ali naked in the bed of stunned prince Kovis, the interrogations, mistreatment, and suspicion ensues. Both brothers battle their desire for Ali while they try to determine where she’s from and if she has harmful intentions toward the prince and the Altairn Empire.

    Pleasantly Surprised and WOW’d
    November 3, 2019
    When I first started this book I wasn’t sure how much I was going to enjoy it because I am usually not a big fantasy reader but it didn’t take long before I was hooked. Not only was it an easy read (I read it in a day) but the writing was phenomenal. I just fell for the characters. The best part, which I didn’t expect, is the funny parts. I actually giggled through certain parts. The relationship between Kovis and Ali seemed pulled from reality (I know it’s fantasy), the way they were a part of each other and fed off of each other in all situations. If you love fantasy books or even if you don’t I recommend picking this one up and reading it, you won’t be sorry. I can’t wait to start the next one!

    It took awhile for me to really get ahold on this at first… and then, I could hardly put it down! It is just an amazing love story! If we all had a sand maiden that was perfect for us like Ali, life could be awesome! Realizing the powers that they have, the way they can utilize them is amazing also!

    Ms. Sandman?? Excellent read!!
    October 21, 2019
    Alissandra is a sand maiden, an Immortal Princess in the Dream Realm. She weaves the dreams of her charges once they are asleep. Her current charge is Prince Kovis, and she has been with him since before he was even born. The difference with Kovis is that she falls in love with him. When Ali’s father tries to use her to take over and enslave the Wake realm, she manages to flee the Dream Realm and joins Kovis in the Wake Realm. Met with suspicion, Ali finds herself imprisoned for a time, wondering if she has jumped into the fire from the frying pan? Great storyline and characters, with lots of action and twists, and romance make this a wonderful read!

I am so pleased with how this series is going and how it’s progressed. I love that it has parts written in the love interests point of view also, its really makes it all come together.

    Darn cliffhangers! XD
    January 8, 2019
    I really liked to see how Ali and Kovis’ relationship evolves in this book. The plot in this book reminds me of a blend of Air Awakens and The Hunger Games. I loved both books, so I really liked this one too. I was disappointed Ali didn’t put 2 and 2 together about the cloudy eye thing until the end though. She’s been incredibly insightful since entering wake realm except for that. To be fair, she had a lot to deal with. I also would have liked more expansion on her interaction with the warrior nomarchs. It did set a great opportunity to revisit in the next book when she will surely need allies to fight her father. So I’m gonna go buy it and hope I’m right. ^.^

    Have you ever gotten into a situation that made you think “why me?”
    In book two, Ali truly learns what it means to ask herself this question over and over. However, she is a determined woman that tends to surround herself with people she loves and they encourage her.
    A story of hurt, betrayal, (if you’ve gone through either, just hang in there with the story, it gets better), healing, compassion, and finally love, Lullaby will keep you wondering when things will ever slow down enough to let our lovers finally enjoy each other.

    Give it a chance, you may love it 🙂
    December 20, 2018
    L. R. W. Lee creates a lush, terrifying and somehow beautiful world, permeated with tones of fantasy and mythology altogether, with well-defined and descriptive writing. Lee, illuminates our minds and imagination with tales of royalty, chaos, and magic.

    In a world full of magic, wings, and dreams, we followed Ali, a sand maiden, daughter of Sandman. But being a sand maiden does not guarantee that no harm is to be done especially if it is your father who is the cruel evil in which you must protect yourself and others against. Ali leaves the Dream world to save her charge prince Kovis and the world of Wake. But no one said it would be easy in the land of Wake. The magic and people are different and Ali must now find a way to adjust while stopping her father’s plan before he destroys all of what she has come to love, including the prince.

    All in all, a wonderful book full of magic, adventure and darkness. The cover art by Charlie Bowater is stunning and is what interested me into to taking a chance on this extraordinary read. High Recommended for all those who love stories like “ A Court of Thrones and Roses” by Sarah Maas or “The Cruel Prince” by Holly Black, or people who simply like Fantasy. I think everyone should give this book a chance.

    The second book doesn’t disappoint and let’s you jump right in where the first left off.

    Both Ali and Kovis are characters I could connect too. Each for their own reasons. The words provided images so I could immerse myself in the world of magic, love, struggle and sand!

    Some of the content is a little heavy I will admit but it shapes the characters and allowed me to connect with their troubled past which I found to make them more relatable. It has me hungry for the thrid book which comes out soon!

    Really enjoyed this book and would recommend!

    Excitement and Romance

    Verified Purchase
    Lullaby blends excitement and romance to weave a story that draws you in and makes it hard to put down at night (I lied to myself so many times when I said “just one more chapter”). It is also a story of overcoming abuse, coming out stronger than thought to be possible. I loved how the story unfolded, usually from Ali’s viewpoint, but occasionally from Kovis’s. The character development of Ali, Kovis, and even Kennan is extremely well done. I really found myself caring about what happened to the characters and really rooting for a happy ending. The end is clearly a set up for a third book in the series, but still is satisfying… for now. I highly recommend reading this book to older teens and up.

    … and interesting take on The Sandman and I really enjoyed Kovis’s backstory
    June 4, 2018
    This story has such a unique and interesting take on The Sandman and I really enjoyed Kovis’s backstory. However, I am going to strongly say that I think that this book needs to be read after Book 1. Yes you can absolutely read this prequel and completely understand what is happening, but I found I was not as invested in anything as I would have been if I had read Book 1 first.

    Another issue I had was that it kept jumping from the past to the present which normally I would have no problem with, but in this case it didn’t actually say it jumped to the present and you were left to just know it did. (Update: the author reached out and said she fixed this issue) When this happened, I would keep rereading passages thinking I missed pertinent information. I didn’t understand what had happened to make the dad all of a sudden be so hateful to her. I only knew it had something to do with her current charge. Maybe I was just really slow putting two and two together, but it didn’t take me until almost the halfway point to truly understand that it was a “jump” back and forth in time. Then it of course made sense about what was happening with the dad. If I would have actually known it was in the present time, I would not have been so confused and would have just gone along for the ride.

    Overall, this was a very fun and intriguing read, but I am going to express once again that the first book should be read before the prequel in order to really appreciate the characters, the history, and the insight this story contains. This is a great story for lovers of the series to get more information and return back to the characters that they love – and well, hate.

    P.S. I totally knew right away that was a Charlie Bowater illustration for the cover. Love it!

    A unique and interesting take on the Sand Man

    Verified Purchase
    Note: I received a revised edition from the author.

    I did like the original version and was left wanting to know what came next. That being said, I did have some problems, but they were addressed in the revised edition, changing my review from 3 to 4 stars*.

    I absolutely loved the premise of the book and was completely on board after reading the summary. How could I say no to a story about a Sand Maiden? I wasn’t sure what to expect while reading the original, but it wasn’t what I got, and I mean that in a good way.

    Ali gives up everything she knows, life as an immortal princess, to become a mortal to help her dream charge, who she’s come to love, save Wake realm from her father.
    She has to overcome obstacles, both internal and external all while adjusting to a world she’s mildly familiar with (thanks to weaving dreams for her charges) and avoiding the notice of her father and his mares.

    Lullaby presents an honest, caring, and adaptive heroine. Ali is also quite strong, combating and overcoming her own self-doubt and years of psychological abuse at the hands of a manipulative father.

    Lullaby has an interesting world, likable characters and a really cool magic system and I can’t wait to continue with the series

    Oh Em Gee You guys!

    I was super excited to find out I was chosen to review this book! I’ve been following the author ever since I found out about it. I was so thrilled.

    Lullaby is addictive, captivating, dynamic, and (well..) ENCHANTING! Lullaby was a complete page turner! This is a NA book with YA appeal. So, basically 18+, but in all honesty, if you are old enough to handle Sarah J Mass books then this one is right up your alley.

    The whole idea of dreams and Sandman was absolutely engaging. I mean, we all know who Mr. Sandman is, so Lullaby took that whole idea to the next level, with Ali. She is the Sand Maiden to Prince Kolvis. Providing dreams to her Dreambean. What can go wrong? Haha nothing really. Ali’s father just wants to use Dream Realm’s folks to power over Wake Realm to control them. What better way than controlling their sleep. In Ali’s attempt to be free of her Father’s torment, she escapes Dream Realm with just her life. Which is no longer immortal, and now she is human. How is Prince Kolvis going to rest now that his Sand Maiden has escaped her Realm? What other tricks does Ali’s Father have up his sleeve? Who is he really? Will Ali ever escape his torment?

    Lullaby is packed with adventure and action from start to finish. Never a dull moment. Lee took us into a new world that was incredible and breath taking. Honestly could not put this down until I finished it. This was definitely one of the best world I entered this year!

    I would reccommend this to all my bookish friends. I really enjoyed this. The characters are interesting, entertaining, and intriguing. Lullaby was a complete page-turner. I loved it from start to finish. This book had it all: Epic action scenes, Romance, Magic, Adventure, and Powerful. If i could use one word to describe this book, it would be SPECTACULAR.

    *Side note*

    I did not read the advised ARC. This was the first released ARC. What I absolutely love about this author is that she listens to her readers. I did have a couple questions and noticed a few grammar errors while reading. BUT another reviewer brought it to attention and the book was updated almost immediately! I read her online post which took care of my questions and so that is why I am giving this 5 stars instead of just 4!

    **END of Side Note**

    Haha, so anyways. YES!! YES!! A million times YES! You all need to read this!

    Ali is a strong Sand Maiden and does what she believes is right. Her father, King Sandman of her area of Dream Realm is dangerous as she figures out for herself slowly. All she wants is his praise and love. But his love isn’t love. Not like she deserves. She escapes to Wake Realm to protect it. Only when she arrives is not the best time and she isn’t trusted. Not at first. Takes a while for them to believe who she is. I mean if this were to happen in this time and place in our reality… we would have trouble believing it too. She slowly finds herself in situations that trouble her but she does her best. She has the love of the people. This is a fantastic read. Sand Maidens weaving dreams? This is such a cool idea. I wonder what happens next. Such an amazing storyline and plot. How it all happens. What she goes through. Pulls at your heartstrings that’s for sure. I loved it!
