Description

Rose slept for a hundred years and when she awoke the world as she knew it had vanished, utterly. She has gone from being a cherished only child to being the sole heir to a vast, interstellar empire. From being alone to being surrounded by friends; from being protected against everything - whether she wanted to be or not - to having others depend upon her. In the superb stand-alone novel A LONG, LONG SLEEP we saw her survive assassination attempts and heartbreak alike. Now, in the stand-alone sequel, Rose must take control of her future for the sake of her friends - and find a way to protect them without unwittingly caging them in love ...show more

Review quote

My plain words aren't enough to do this beautiful book justice, but what I can say is this: I implore each and every person to read this emotionally wrenching, bittersweet journey of a novel. A LONG, LONG SLEEP is easily one of the best novels of 2011--THE BOOK SMUGGLERSshow more

Back cover copy

Rosalina Fitzroy is waking up . . . 62 years passed while she was locked away in the enforced sleep of a stasis tube. 62 years in which the world changed beyond recognition - at the end of which she was woken by a kiss. Now her world is changing again. The heiress to a vast, interplanetary empire, Rose is slowly waking up to the knowledge that her empire is a commercial - and sometimes cut-throat - beast, and that people she loves have made unforgivably tough decisions. But that's not all. Her best friend, Otto, is dying and the slim chance of saving his life lies in her hands. In a choice between Empire and friendship Rose knows where her heart lies . . . but when friendship, love and business become intertwined, she may have to make unforgivable decisions of her own. Praise for A Long, Long Sleep: 'My plain words aren't enough to do this beautiful book justice, but what I can say is this: I implore each and every person to read this emotionally wrenching, bittersweet journey of a novel.' thebooksmugglers.comshow more
