    Well, that was a surprise, and a disappointment, that the whole story wraps in two volumes. It's fantasy, it's a romance, with a cute fennec named Bini. And a black heroine! So to get to it: Cyrenic, released from being the Sleepless servant of Poppy, sleeps. And after months of sl...

    This has some good good makeouts but the plot was bit all over the place for me. ...

    The artwork was as fun and magnificent as Vol. 1, but the story felt rushed and almost incomplete. It was a surprising change after the intricate world-building and (seemingly) slow-burn romance of the first volume. I was really hoping that Sleepless would evolve into a longer, richer ...

    Waaah, it's over! Only two volumes? Why??? Okay, so there's definitely an HEA but I really want more of this world. And oh my goddess, Poppy and Cyrenic are my new favorite couple that I simply must ship hard. As a huge fan of the short lived series 'Still Star Crossed', as well...

    I enjoyed this action-adventure-romance with its historical setting and slight magical elements. The artwork is beautiful. However I felt the story was very much rushed. I thought the first volume was a setup for a longer story. Indeed, it would have made an excellent epic adventure. B...

    This volume picks up Poppy and Cyrenic's story about a year on from where the previous one ended. Cyrenic has been asleep that whole time ever since Poppy released him from his vow while she has been stuck dealing with court politics and trying to prevent a forced marriage to Lord Held...

    Sleepless is one of the few books I bought without reading from the library first, and then proceeded to start it while in line to check out at my comic shop. (if you?re interested, the post about how I read comics is here.) Few books have enchanted me like Sleepless and I?m a litt...

    Volume 2 didn?t hit me quite as hard as volume 1 did, but it was still really good, with a some wonderfully swoony panels. I was surprised at the amount of closure it had. I?ll have to investigate to see if this is all that?s planned. I wouldn?t mind hanging out in this world a...

    Pretty, but slight. I thought we gearing up for long game of cat and mouse game of courtly intrigue a la Game of Thrones, but this volume spills all its secrets in a single, unsatisfying splash. The central romance is so, so flat, and Poppy's spiteful action of cursing Cyrenic to an...

    3.5/5 Volume two isn't out yet, but I read issues 7-11, and don't want to shelve them separately. Anyway. It's a good conclusion, but my original critique of volume one applies here as well. I felt Sleepless was just too abbreviated in its storytelling. It could have been comfortabl...

    So the main Sleepless has now had a year-long nap, and his charge is about to marry the man she detests, and it remains fairly barely-fantasy-by-numbers and I still find it difficult to invest much in any of it beyond that wonderful fennec fox creature. To make matters worse, even del ...

    A year after the events of vol 1, Lady Poppy is still trying to pick up the pieces of her life. On the plus side?she's made dear friends with Princess Rellen and her guard. On the negative?Sir Cyrenic remains asleep, and while the mysterious forces who wanted her dead remained unna...

    ????? 3 stars ( writing/story: ?? 2 stars + artwork ????? 5 stars ) I really loved Sleepless, Vol. 1. The beautiful art, the wistful characters, and the tranquil tone of the story. The main leads had a great sense of duty and a remarkable restraint over their...

    The art in this is super duper beautiful, the use of patterns in the art is amazing. The idea of the "sleepless" guard is interesting but it kind of seems like a gimmick used to set this comic apart from others that are your kind of typical medieval looking fantasy, or maybe it's ju...

    I adore the artwork in this novel. And to make it even better, the story is fantastic. My only quibble is that it's too short. The world-building is fantastic and the characters are lovely, yet the story goes by too quickly. ...

    This review can also be found on my blog: https://graphicnovelty2.com/2019/06/0... I recently discovered the lush romantic fantasy series Sleepless and quickly read the duology. I just wish it had been a longer series, as I enjoyed the love story between Poppy and Cyrenic and think ...

    So, this ended... quickly. Is it me or the ending feels a little too rushed? I was really enjoying the worldbuilding and the links between Poppy and some other characters. But everything is rushed in the last three issues. The slow-moving, subtle and, sometimes, contradictory, love sto...

    This is an appealing but oddly paced series. It dwells on court intrigue and relationships, sending signs that it is going to be a book about world building, but then precipitously jumps into an action sequence that rather abruptly ends the series without a full exploration or explanat...

    The art on this one is still a massive five stars, but something about the story itself wasn't as enjoyable for me. I feel like I needed to read volume one and two back-to-back to really enjoy the story and the arc. ...

    I really enjoyed this super short and sweet fantasy. I think this is the kind of fantasy I like vs the large scale, world is ending type stuff. This is a great series! ...

    A generous 3 stars. Don't get me wrong, I did like this for what it was and the artwork is still some of my favorite out there but the story line was too rushed. I went into this not realizing that volume 2 would be the conclusion of this story and was shocked that that was it, becaus...

    Still beautifully illustrated and intriguing story, though I feel like the plot tied up a little too neatly and quickly. That being said, I prefer a story to give itself a finite ending (even if it's a little rushed). I wish (hope?) there's going to be more of this world with maybe a d...

    I still can't recommend this series highly enough for all the reasons mentioned in my review of vol. 1, and was so pleased Poppy and Cyrenic got the happy ending they deserved, but the story wrapped up way too quickly. And I don't just say that because I love this world and these chara...

    Honestly, the conclusion was a little rushed and the romantic element between Poppy and Cyrenic isn't truly explored. Sure, they have some delicious, fairytale kisses (all which are beautiful and extract the giddiest teenage girl squeals), but there isn't too much conversation about th...

    This volume continues the story one year after Sleepless, Vol. 1 where poor Cyrenic is still working through the events from last book. Not much more to add to this book after Volume 1 (see https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...) - it wraps up the assassination mystery and resolv...
