THE INSOMNIA FILES; #1 JODI COLLINS
insomnia saga — book 0.5

“Don’t make a sound,” I whisper.

Peering through the shelves, I can’t take my eyes off the giant on the other side. It’s a creature with an oval-shaped head, a slender body, elongated arms, hands with pointy fingers, and long legs with which it takes big, silent steps.

Like a two-legged spider, hunting for its prey.

For first-time Insomnia Saga readers

A Nightprowler marked her and covered her in scars that will forever stigmatize her as an outcast:

A Sleepwalker.

A year after the attack, thirteen-year old Jodi Collins starts working for the Summoners to keep herself and her parents alive in this new, brutal life of discrimination and hate.

The Summoners are a worldwide army that have been fighting the Nightprowlers for centuries—and by working for them, Jodi will be forced to fight these creatures responsible for ruining her future.

On a dark, wintery night, Jodi is sent on a mission to find a young missing boy. The clock is ticking—if she’s too late, he will end up the same as her.

A toy store. A maze of dolls and monsters.
A world where light and darkness collide.

Jodi has to prove herself and overcome her greatest fear:
confronting the demons of the Night. And fight them.

[This short story takes place 4 years prior to the 1st book in the series, Insomnia.]

INSOMNIA
insomnia saga — book 1

I caught my reflection in the mirror and looked at the girl staring back at me. Long, brown hair, falling over thin shoulders; tanned skin; green eyes; arms wrapped in bandages, hiding scars.

And at once, I was able to see what everybody else saw.

I had become the monster of fairytales. A creature that was feared, and had to be locked away forever.

Jodi Collins is a Sleepwalker.

An outcast. A pariah.

Five years ago, she was attacked by a creature darker than shadows, a demon without a face, a monster hungry for her body: a Nightprowler.
A nightmare that comes to life as soon as the sun sets, drenching the world in darkness.

When a Nightprowler attacks you, two things can happen: it will either claim your body to use as a host, or it will mark you as a Sleepwalker.

Sleepwalkers are feared and despised, believed to conspire with the Nightprowlers and threaten mankind.

Stigmatized by the telltale scars of the Night, Jodi and her parents were forced to move to the slums of Reid, where the alleys are filled with vagrants during the day, and Nightprowlers during the night. No school or employer would have her.
And her parents blamed her for destroying their life.

Now seventeen years old, Jodi is working for the Summoners—the worldwide army that has been battling the Nightprowlers for centuries—who hire her to defeat a Nightprowler that lures countless of victims into its castle while disguising itself as a human; a Nightprowler too dangerous for an average human to fight. It seems like it can only be defeated by another creature of the dark: a Sleepwalker.

Unable to refuse this mission and the money it will earn her, Jodi sets out to find the Nightprowler—but not on her own.
Help comes in the form of the arrogant Kay Somnus, a young Summoner disgusted by Sleepwalkers. And yet, they have to find a way to combine their forces and exorcize this Nightprowler.

Jodi’s future depends on this mission—but what does Kay expect to gain from it?

A castle of darkness and storms, filled with whispers and skulls.
Secrets will be revealed. Lives will be changed.
Neither Jodi nor Kay will ever be the same.

THE INSOMNIA FILES
insomnia saga — book 1.5

The Insomnia Files contains three short stories written from three different perspectives, diving deeper into the Insomnia Saga universe.

FILE #1 tells the story of Jodi Collins and takes place four years prior to INSOMNIA: Thirteen years old, Jodi has just started working for the Miller Academy. As she’s sent on a mission on a dark, wintery night, she has no choice but to confront the demons of the Night—and fight them.

In FILE #2 fifteen-year old Kay Somnus is about to take his final exam to become the youngest Summoner in history… but in order to succeed, he will have to pretend—and believe—he is someone he’s not, and forever deny himself his true power.

Alain Somnus, the very first Summoner of Light, is the voice of FILE #3. Hundreds of years ago, he opened a gate and allowed dark powers to spill in that would change the world forever… creating the darkest secret ever kept. Haunted by nightmares and his failure to protect the only girl who had ever managed to touch his heart, he opened the Somnus Academy—but could he live with the lies?

NOCTURNE
insomnia saga — book 2

I have changed.
Castle Insomnia has broken something deep inside of me.
“Jodi,” I can still hear her drawl, “my precious, little Sleepwalker.”

Jodi Collins and Kay Somnus return.

Three months ago, they defeated the strongest Nightprowler the world had ever seen; three months ago, they were accused of conspiring with Annabelle, and had to run for their lives; three months ago, they decided to raise their own army: Insomnia.

Jodi and Kay, still living in hiding, secretly travel from city to city to exorcise Nightprowlers and spread the name of Insomnia. Their army is growing, but so is the hatred towards Sleepwalkers—new laws have been passed, rights have been stolen, and the world is becoming a divided place.

But Jodi has changed. While fighting them, she fears the demons of the Night in a way she never did before, and she might be on the verge of losing the only weapon she has: her Light.

Meanwhile, both Kay’s family and his own dark past catch up to him, forcing him to fight the hardest battle he has ever fought in his life: opening up to those around him, while he knows a piece of the Night is still clinging to his soul.

With the arrival of the mysterious but violent Soulless Army, Jodi starts to believe Annabelle might very well be alive—and as the world grows darker, enemies gather, and Jodi’s and Kay’s paths divide, any-thing seems possible.

Jodi will have to fight for her Light, Kay will have to save her, and together they will have to accept they are both soldiers in an inevitable war.

They might have defeated Annabelle.
But the fight is far from over.

THE NOCTURNE FILES
insomnia saga — book 2.5

The Nocturne Files contains a novella and an accompanying short story, told from the perspectives of Alain Somnus and Nilisa Solovey; a young man who became the world’s savior when he discovered powers with which he could battle the darkest creatures ever known to man—and a girl who believed them to be angels instead.
 
The Nightprowlers first brought them together.
Then, they divided them forever.

 
File #1, told from dual perspective, revisits the night Alain Somnus performed a ritual of shadows, opening a gate to the realm of Night and accidentally inviting the demons to spill into his world.
The Masters of Night, the monsters are called—yet Nilisa Solovey, Alain’s unwilling fiancée, knows them as the Night Angels instead, for her secret lover, Orion, has been able to see them since he was a child.
And the moment Alain starts fighting them, Nilisa knows it is up to her to protect them—even if it means losing her family, her wealth, her life. Everything.
 
Nilisa’s story continues in File #2, as she struggles to live in a new world where angels are viewed as devils. Alain has opened the Somnus Academy and is teaching the people how to become Summoners of Light, making Nilisa realize she needs to gather like-minded men and women to stop the slaughtering of divine creatures.
As she crosses paths with the Queen of the Night Angels, an opportunity presents itself for Nilisa that enables her to become a soldier in this war of Night and Light, and save all that she loves:
A man, broken in the eyes of others. A child, who she believes deserves a better world. A queen, destined to rule.

ORIGINS
insomnia saga — book 3

Our world is changing.
It is already turning into a darker place. And darker still.

 
The first step of the ritual has been completed.
Only two remain. And time is slipping.

 
It’s only been a day since Kay sacrificed his blood in order to save the world; only a day since Jodi rose to fight her greatest enemy once more; only a day since Aiden’s betrayal; only a day since Annabelle and Damian achieved their first step in the ritual of the Infinite Night.
 
Realizing they need to take risks to keep the Infinite Night from falling, no matter the cost, Jodi, Kay and their friends have rallied the army of Insomnia to destroy the remaining two Stone Circles and plan to travel to the Circle in Miller themselves—but the entire world believes the Sleepwalkers are the enemy and refuse their help.

While everything is already working against them, Damian ups the stakes when he invites two of his companions to assist him with the remaining steps needed to complete the ritual, awaiting Annabelle’s recovery from Jodi’s unprecedented attack.
 
Jodi, however, has opened a connection between her and the Nightprowler.
And she can sense Annabelle already growing in strength.
 
Upon black shadows, the Night arrives, claiming the streets of Somnus and Reid, and possibilities start to look bleak until an unexpected invitation from an Insomnia soldier finds Jodi and Kay: they are not alone—an entire army is waiting to fight along with them in this war.
 
As Kay struggles with his brother’s betrayal, Jodi with her growing connection to Annabelle, and both of them with their unspoken feelings for one another, they let the mysterious invitation lead them to the tropical city of Maina, where darkness lurks in the rainforest… and perhaps even in broad daylight.

Jodi and Kay soon realize they are more than mere soldiers in this war against the Night—they are leaders; they are the voices that need to be heard.
 
But is either of them strong enough to keep the promises they have made to the world—and each other?
