Freebie Friday [5]

So, what freebie would I like to share with you today...

Title: Awakening
Series: The Watchers Trilogy, #1
Author: Karice Bolton
Pages: 307
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal Romance

Alone in snowy, remote Whistler village, Ana tries to build a new life since losing her parents. With a cozy condo, a sweet-faced bulldog and an evening job to leave the days free for the slopes, life slips into a great routine. If only she could shake the guilt for not remembering anything about her parents and banish the night terrors that haunt her every dream.

On a whim, Ana goes out with Athen, a guy she’s just met in the Grizzly Pub... The only problem is that she feels like she already knows him. Within 48 hours of meeting Athen and his family, Ana’s world implodes. She falls for Athen quickly and before she knows it, a past life begins to resurface. As thrilling as the revelations appear at first, she fights against the chilling information that Athen is from the underworld. Soon she begins to struggle as her own supernatural gifts are slowly unveiled, and she realizes that the nightmares she’s been having might be premonitions and not dreams at all.

It is up to Ana to decipher between fact and fiction before it is too late, and her new love, Athen, follows in her same fate - one that is lost between two worlds.

My Rating: 3 of 5
Current Price: FREE! for Kindle [Purchase]
Worth A Read: Probably.

Angels aren't exactly my favorite paranormal entity, but I did enjoy this one more than some others. I really liked the lore behind the existence of angels. Some of it is what's been said before, but there's some unique twists which made this one stand out a bit more. I love the idea of the Awakening process. Sure, it's a painful event for those involved, but I found it really interesting. This book is a little on the slow side, and mainly follows Ana and Company having a good time over the winter holidays, but there is a bigger conflict lingering in the background. Once that conflict comes to the forefront, it does some serious damage! This ends on a cliffhanger, but it's the first in a trilogy. I am intrigued enough to continue this one, and I have a feeling the next book will be better!

  1. Yeah, I'm not such a fan of angels, but this one doesn't look bad.

    Thanks for sharing!
