The Somnia Series

An Impossible Truth

Twenty-six-year-old Sophia McAllister finds out her dreams are not just dreams: she travels to a realm, much like her own, except she’s sixteen and back in high school.
But her travels come with a heavy price; her own sanity is on the line when she starts to question whether or not the life she’s led so far is in fact… real.


“I read the entire book in one day, and could not put it down. I encourage readers to read this novel, it was a surprise I hadn’t known I was looking for until I read it.”

Fade Into Darkness

Sophia McAllister’s life turned upside down when she discovered her power to travel across realms. Now she has to find her True Realm, the realm where she belongs. Unable to easily adjust to every realm, Sophia becomes vulnerable to its inhabitants. Not to mention to her biological father, a Shadow Walker whose intentions have yet to be revealed…

“Van Der Ploeg has an amazing imagination to show such imagery in her works. […] I would recommend it for those who want to travel somewhere without leaving the comfort of their own home.”
