Book Description

Maxwell Cain was just your average, fifteen-year-old, high school misfit. Then one day, he wakes up and realizes ten years of his life have gone missing...and he is now a businessman worth billions. Now, on the run from people trying to kill him, Max is quickly found by a man who calls himself a tracker. This tracker tells him crazy, impossible stories of powerful magic and evil tyrants determined to control the world. If that’s not enough, he tells Max it has been prophesied that he will play a part in it all. Max will travel on a daring rescue mission, all the while, attempting to control his abilities... and save the world. If he can’t, he will succumb to his powers and become the evil tyrant he was predestined to be.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Well, to the author I will say, I'm thoroughly impressed. Well done!!! I guess I have my hands on the new release because I didn't come across any spelling, punctuation, or format errors.  I loved the story line. For the most part I could never guess what was next. Even the mental back story going on there was a nice addition. For those who like fantasy mixed with alot of excitement, this is a fast paced action story that you wont be able to put down. I stumbled upon this through a link on twitter the other day......GLAD I DID!!! "  -Lori's Lounge

"Awakened is a great new young adult adventure story with a magical twist. It is fast paced anough to keep my attention and clean anough (which as a parent is hard to find) for me to allow my daughter to read. Can't wait for the next one!" - OkieD0kie

4.0 out of 5 stars Awake all night reading it!! August 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book with a great story line. If you are looking for a book that will capture your attention and hold it, this is the one for you.

But the book isn't perfect. The author has some formatting issues to fix and if you have a kindle touch those issues suck. You have the choice to read the book in itsy bitsy print or super large print. There are some spelling errors and punctuation errors. There aren't that many but the few there are tend to trip you up for a second or two.

This book isn't perfectly formatted and there are some things I would change.

BUT, I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great magic book! His descriptions are awesome and make it easy to imagine exactly what he describes!

4.0 out of 5 stars Non-Stop Action March 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Max, a fourteen year-old orphan has horrible nightmares where he has incredible powers capable of destroying the world. During his waking hours he has best friends Will and Chloe to center him. All this changes on Max’s 15th birthday when he is attacked by bullies and laid unconscious. When he awakens, Max is ten years older.

David Mattiesen’s debut book, Awakened: The Story of Maxwell Cain is a plot driven novel with non-stop action. The author makes the newbie error of telling too much and not showing enough, but the suspense expertly builds throughout the book keeping the reader’s interest. Pages will flip quickly as Max gets into one jam and out of another as he develops his magical skills. Readers interested in magic, fantasy, and the occult will love this work. By the way, the ending is a jaw-dropper.

**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

Michael Thal is the author of The Legend of Koolura

More About the Author

In May, 2012, I had an idea in my head that would not go away. After trying to go to sleep for hours, I finally gave up and decided to write everything down - hopefully to clear my mind. Eventually, I had twenty pages of a rough outline and I realized I had the potential for a book. I have never written a single manuscript in my entire life, so this was definitely a new challenge for me. Three months later, and a little help from some friends, I had a completed book. Awakened: The Story of Maxwell Cain.
