Sleepers (The Swarm Trilogy #1) by Megg Jensen

An adoptee raised in a foreign land, sixteen-year-old Lianne was content with her life as handmaiden to the queen, until a spell cast on her at birth activated. Now she's filled with uncontrollable rage and access to magic she thought had been bled from her people years ago. Even her years of secret training in elite hand-to-hand combat and meditation can’t calm the fires raging inside her.

Her heart is torn between two boys, the one she’s always loved and the one who always ignored her. But when the kingdom threatens to tear itself apart due to rumors surrounding the queen’s alleged affair, who will Lianne protect and who will she destroy?
Book One in The Swarm Trilogy

I love Megg Jensen's story telling it's gripping and layers of interesting characters and stories of interweaving ideas. When Lianne begins to not trust everything that she knew before. Her world turns upside down and she has very little time to try to save what she knows is true. Her friendship with Mags and the infant that the king has ordered to die. 

It's a non stop kind of story which I love. Ms. Jensen is always able to catch me off guard with her twists that I never see coming. Her books are somewhat shorter than most but there is so much content that it leaves you with a feeling as if  swept up in an adventure. 

Lies, secrets, magic, death and battles. (Don't forget the sexy guys!)  It's all packed into one great story. I think that this first book in the Swarm Trilogy really starts of with a bang and I loved every minute.
