Summary: We aren't a we without all of us. Chaos reigns in The Sleepless City and it’s really beginning to piss Detective Jonas Forge off. He’s separated from his soulmate, Blair Turner. A separation he fears might be permanent. Nothing is going right. It’s as if the universe is conspiring against him. A long closed off door buried deep within his psyche cracks open when a turn of events he never saw coming flips his world upside down. There’s a monster behind that door and he’s not sure where the monster leaves off and he begins. Hallucinations grip the town and everyone in it, threatening to tear the family in Boggs’s Castle to shreds. The only way forward is to bare all to each other. While Forge and Declan confront horrors from their shared past, they all learn a terrible truth about vampires—one not even imagined in their worst nightmare. Demons lurk around every corner, seeking to cause havoc. Unless the tenuous thread woven between Blair and Forge is strong enough to pull Forge to safety, those demons might just be his demise. Can they turn it all around and control a monster in order to defeat a demon? If you like imperfect heroes with tarnished pasts who don’t know how to quit, then you’ll love Shifting Chaos by Elizabeth Noble, the action-packed, emotional conclusion to The Sleepless City. Author's note: This book was originally published in 2015. It has been rewritten with new chapters and scenes and re-edited.
