Book Description

Summer fun is coming! And other than turning thirteen, twins, Meghan and Colin Jacoby, are looking forward to a typical summer... well, typical for them. Which means their uncle (and guardian) will pull into the Cobbscott Campground and park his travel trailer for the entire summer.

Normally, they'd never spend more than a couple weeks in any one place, their uncle preferring to move around. But only until summer when they'd be Cobbscott bound. Why did he do this every summer? Why did he prefer to move around? The twins have never thought to ask.

Their only concern being that their friend Sebastien would be in Cobbscott as well... the one person who also happens to know their secret- that they can read each other's minds.
Arrival at the campground goes as expected and within hours, Meghan and Colin are already making plans to meet up with Sebastien. But before they do, the campground gets some unexpected visitors.

Visitors with reserved campsites. Sites that have been reserved, but unused, for years.

The twins always wondered who reserved and never used these campsites and now that they have seen the owners, the twins can't help but get an ominous feeling.

These visitors dress strange and act strange, taking hikes into the woods wearing wing tip shoes and overcoats, disappearing into things clearly too small to fit so many people, and they never stop peering into the sky as if expecting to see something terrible.

And when unexplainable and frightening events follow their arrival, the twins start to realize that this summer, will be their least typical of all...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good--Writing needs work May 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Awaken is the first novel in the Fated Saga Fantasy series. I as I read the story I couldn't help thinking that this reads like a teenager's first novel, which comes as no surprise since the author is a teenager. That being said, this is still an interesting story.

The first chapter does draw you in immediately. The contemporary writing style makes this easy to read, unlike some fantasy books that try to hard to be the next Tolkien. And I am glad that though this story focuses on two teenagers, it is not at all similar to Harry Potter.

The story focuses on Meghan and Colin, two 13-year-olds who are telepathically linked and twins. They live with their uncle and are always on the move. While camping they meet a gypsy named Jae, whom I hope we learn more about, and they have a friend named Sebastian. While learning more about the world around them, Colin comes across a magic book. I love the magic book; it's a talking book with an attitude. As the title suggests, after Colin receives the book he and Meghan suddenly learn that they have magic powers. This, naturally, makes them a target for the bad guys.

I did enjoy the story and will be reading he second book. My only suggestion to the author is to show the scenes. Don't just tell the story. This will help the reader really feel as though they are in it.

2.0 out of 5 stars None February 2, 2013

I appreciate that this book was written for a young audience, but that's no excuse for the juvenile style and grammatical errors. The story could be a good one, but it needs some decent editorial work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Creative, but falls short... December 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I felt like the entire book was a wind up to nothing. It's pretty clear where it's heading right from the introduction, but the book slogs along with petty, childish characters (I appreciate they are children, but it's sometimes hard to read) and right when the story revs up, it ends. I realize it's an effort to pull me into the next book, but when the first book was less than impressive it's a hard sale to make in the last 10 pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awaken & The Fated Saga August 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rachael D'Aigle is an amazing author. The first book Awaken and the second book The Fated Saga, I could not stop reading it. I found it very captivating with very believable. It had all the contents of a good story, intrigue, hidden meanings, magic with some mystery and adventure! I believe this book is good as the Harry Potters books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't really rope me in February 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Awaken looked like a very intresting book when I read the summary. But reading it, I couldn't really get into it. The plot was a little all over the place and the back and forth conversation between characters left me confused. The author didn't seperate her character's point of view so I never really knew who was talking. While the interesting story line was there, the fact that it kept jumping around randomly made me want to read something else and not even bother. But I did finish it and despite all these negative points, it ended in an intresting way that made me want to buy the second book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware March 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Fated Saga Series is a fun read except you need to beware that when you get into them and purchase the volumes of this, no where does it even hint that you will get to the end of the series... The stories just drop in mid air so to speak... with a comment to look forward to future books. After reading 5 novels and then for it to just stop mid stream. Just doesn't seem right that then you sign up for e-mails for future purchases to complete...eventually the series. Amazon is a great in fact super place to get e-books. Just feels like the author should say this is going to be a continuing series...
