The Lovereading4Kids comment
A chilling tale of dark forces from another world haunting the young offspring of the rich and wealthy in a secluded sanatorium for the mentally unwell children of the rich. Son of the wealthy Lord Mandeville, Alfie is sent there because he suffers from sleeplessness. Apparently a most decent young man, during his stay, Alfie discovers fiendish horrors that lead to the violent death. What is the dark story of his own past and will he ever be able to unlock its secrets?.
While the Others Sleep by Tom Becker
When Alfie Mandeville's insomnia threatens to embarrass his wealthy family he is sent to Scarbrook House, a sanatorium for wealthy children. Troubled by the eerie atmosphere and skittish patient, Alfie's condition gets worse, not better. He falls under the spell of the charismatic and cruel William Travers, who seems to delight in bullying the other patients. A mysterious sighting by the water tower in the woods stirs up turbulent memories of Alfie's time in India. And as he lies awake one night, Alfie is haunte by visions of a strange creature moving through the darkness at the edge of the patients' beds. Are his tired eyes hallucinating, or is starting to lose his mind? When Alfie learns that the creatures are hunting a demon escaped from the depths of Hell - and that the only protection against them is to be asleep - suddenly insomnia becomes the most dangerous condition of all.
