I have read all of S.J. Bolton's novels, and Awakening is my favorite of all her works.
Well drawn characters, a fast paced plot, numerous possible baddies, and excellent research add up to a very compelling read that I would recommend to anyone.
I enjoyed this read, but did find the feats of the heroine a little too far fetched for my taste, and SO many snakes, that was a bit too much too.
Not her best book. Too long and too much information about snakes! I skimmed a lot of it. But it is one of her earlier books, i think the later ones I have read are better?Published 12 days ago by Martin W.Friendship
I randomly picked this book up out of a library display of new books. The story had me hooked from the beginning. This author is a breath of fresh air. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Booklover Karen

I read this for a book club and enjoyed it. It was fun to read something outside my usual genres; I don't read very much suspense as an adult, but loved mysteries as a kid. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Katrina
