Awaken

Step into a scene and let it drip from your fingertips. - MJ Bush
Awaken was such a fun read for me.  I couldn't get enough of Sophia and her friend Jaz and I'm excited to start reading Surrender, the next book in this series.  Here's the blurb:

SOME PEOPLE AREN'T DESTINED TO BE ORDINARY.
With a special gift held close to her heart, it was always going to be hard for Sophia Woodville to live an ordinary life.
As a 20 year old nursing grad, she thought she had her future all sorted.
However, destiny was about to intervene.
Her secret was not so secret. The gift she possessed was just a hint of something far beyond her wildest imagination.
Sophia will be pulled, kicking and screaming, into an unseen, ancient world that challenges all that she thought to be true of herself, her family and the origins of humanity.
Original sin, forbidden love and her life in constant danger.
Will Sophia survive this dark twist of fate?
Will the devil be her saviour?
Will an Angel be her downfall?

Take a moment and read my review for this thrilling fantasy book:
Well, there you have it. This book is AMAZING! Okay, there were a few slow spots here and there, along with a little too much description, but overall this is an excellent piece of work.

I loved Sophia and her rainbow hair. The author did a great job of creating a well-rounded protagonist, who is easy to fall in love with. My absolute favorite character was Jaz, Sophia's best friend. I have a few friends who have mixes of Jaz's personality and they are the best! No fear to tell the world what is on her mind! Love it!

I was not expecting the ending. I had my ideas and I was nearly convinced I had it figured out, until the author threw me for a loop. Brilliant ending and I can't wait to dive into her next book, Surrender! I highly recommend reading this engrossing fantasy book.

Surrender is #5 on my TBR list and I am chomping at the bit to get to it.  Until then, grab your own copy of Awaken and let me know what you think!
