In the isolated mountain town of Marble Woods, the townspeople harbor a dangerous secret. It’s here, away from the civilized world, that they can experiment with human genetics that have the power to alter your mind and body. When Ryder Ashling, a down-on-his-luck longtime sufferer of nightmares, discovers the town, he thinks he’s found a cure, but bears witness to their research and its terrifying, inevitable unraveling.
In exploring the disturbing crossroads of genetic manipulation and lust for youth and control of the physical, Winters’ cautionary tale of the perversion of natural order and desire will entice and rattle readers in this thought-provoking tale of terror.
"Dear reader I urge you to take a wild ride with A.I Winters' new novel. 'Summoner of Sleep' is one hell of a horror novel, written in such a captivating style, that guarantees you will lose sleep while trying desperately to reach the fantastic finale...The author managed to create a suspenseful, well-written, bone-chilling tale that will stay with you for quite some time after reading it." -Pan Book Reviews
"I would love to see this book made into a movie. It is the product of a brilliant and vivid imagination that entraps you in its horrible and disturbing world that you somehow don’t want to leave until you figure out what’s really going on...The story sucks you in like a tornado and whips you around with increasing speed and intensity, becoming more terrifying, more vivid, and more complex with each chapter...I think anyone who enjoys reading horror, fantasy, science fiction and the like would enjoy this book, whether an uninitiated teenager trying out horror for the first time, or a long-time Stephen King veteran." -Liz Stillwaggon Swan, PhD, Contributing Writer for Psychology Today magazine
"Summoner of Sleep is a fascinating and thought-provoking dive into the all-too-familiar world of tampering with human genetics and the consequences of power and control. Winters successfully diverges from her well-loved YA fantasy series into a whole new genre that captivates and entertains. —Christie Stratos, Author of Anatomy of a Darkened Heart
“Summoner of Sleep is a riotously fast paced, thrill ride, bursting with imagination, fractured characters, and a veritable bestiary of grotesque creatures. It’s a genuinely scary and disturbing treat akin to a modern-day H P Lovecraft story on speed.” -Simon Paul Woodward, Author of Wearing Shadows
"Wow. This is one crazy ride...I recommend this book if you love monster stories that probe the deeper reasons that drive us to do the unthinkable. It will keep you up and keep you thinking." -Nicole Sallak Anderson, Author of Origins
