“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 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.]

About the Author
Lynn Robin (1992) is an author of Upper Young Adult novels in the Romantic Dark Fantasy genre.
Born and raised in the historical city of Leiden in the Netherlands, she has felt the urge to write stories ever since she was little— preferably ones with ghosts and other spooky things (probably because her parents let her watch Stephen King film adaptions when she was nine).
Next to that, she likes to add a healthy dose of romance to her books; star-crossed lovers and forbidden romances, preferably about monsters hiding in the bodies of young men, and girls blessed with angelic powers—or at least humans touched by magical abilities.
She made her debut in 2017 with her Dutch series entitled the Schimmenwereld Serie (the Phantom World series), containing six books about ghosts, angels, demons, music, dance, art, and—of course—love. She won the Best Book of 2018 award with the fourth installment, Schimmendroom (Phantom Dream), chosen by the jury of The Dutch Indie Awards.
In 2019 she debuted internationally in English with the Insomnia Saga. In 2020, she also began publishing the highly romantic Kissing Monsters series.
Besides being passionate about writing, she’s also a rather dedicated running/fitness/yoga/martial arts enthusiast, and likes to spend time with her family, play videogames, or freak herself out watching documentaries about haunted houses (for research, she claims).
