"I love a good mish-mash of genres, and this one was such an unexpected delight (not to mention a can't put it down read)..."

"Awakenings is a thrilling debut with great pacing, characters you care about, and a riveting story. I found it hard to put down."
Mark Rose, Bookgasm.com
"I’m definitely looking forward to the next book to find out what becomes of these characters."
"...the writing itself is excellent. Early in the book the author describes the lack of sensation as a character gets her head chopped off:

"Adventure, exciting fight scenes, and heroes to root for make Awakenings a refreshing, entertaining read!"
