I was sad that this story didn't draw me in. My emotions and thoughts were surface level only. I can't blame it on the writing but I am thinking that maybe I have read one too many books with Nephilim/angels. The writing is detailed and that is what I like. However, in some parts of the story I felt that some of the transitions from one scene to the next were not smooth. I found myself halfway through and losing interest because of lack of action or romance at that point. I feel that the book got a little redundant at times and dragged in some places. It didn't hold my attention and I would put it aside and read something else. I did come back to it hoping to get some connection to the characters.

There was a lot of inner monologue on Ana's part but that is to be expected since she is the one reawakening to her old life. She has to figure things out and get memories back. Every time Ana would want to get close to Athen he would tell her to wait. There really was no explanation for this. This family that Ana was so happy to have wasn't very forthcoming with the info and I found myself getting frustrated. I would have liked to see some more chemistry between Athen and Ana.

Even though I wasn't engulfed with emotion for this book it had a good story line with an interesting take on angels. The explanation of dark demon v. white demon is one that I have not read before and found that to be the best part of the book for me. The ending was where I finally got interested. It had the emotion and action that I waited the whole book to see. The ending should lead nicely into the second book. If you like books that have angels as characters then you may choose to read this book. It wasn't for me but it may just be something for you.

Reviewer: Heather

Awakening is the first part of The Watcher's Trilogy where we meet a young woman named Ana. She works as a waitress in a resort town, but has no knowledge of her past accept a handful of newspaper clippings. Ana is frequented with disturbing nightmares that haunt her, no, torment her to no end. She knows not why these dreams occur until Athen enters into her life.

Athen, nor his family, are what they seem to be, and Ana quickly learns that she is a part of their world: the underworld. Athen has been searching for his lost soul-mate, Ana, since the demons erased her memory back in the 40's. Our main character struggles with this new-found knowledge that shakes her very core, and sends her into the realization that her nightmares are a reality. However, she is surrounded by love, friendship and most of all a family that would die for her. But can Ana learn to be a white demon again before it's too late? Will the Awakening process work, thus reuniting Athen and Ana again?

I'll be honest here folks. I wasn't entirely sure about this book when I realized it was about demons/Fallen Angels, and an intricate force of good versus evil with a race that is supposed to be punished by God. These characters - Ana, Athen and the rest - are the children of Angels that fell in love with human women. As punishment God forbid entry to heaven to the Angels that fell as well as their children, but what made the story unique was that not all the angels or children are evil.

This doesn't stop the race of white demons from doing good deeds, and helping to guide the human race to live their lives righteously.

Format: Paperback
Ana lives a lonely life. She only has one friend and no family to speak of. One night while working in the pub, a group of mysterious strangers turn her world upside down and what she finds is everything she has ever dreamed of, but at what cost?
This book really took me by surprise. I was not sure how much I would like it, but it turned out to be so much better than I had imagined!

The Family

I loved the fact that Ana had finally gotten the family that she deserved. I really enjoyed the times when all four of them were together, but, I would have to say that my favorite would be Arie. She kind of reminded me of Alice from Twilight. The sweet but knowledgable sister type that is everybody's friend. Except the bad guy.

The Romance

The romance was fairly quick to start and then it seemed to come to an abrupt halt. Ana and Athen had met quickly and were in each others arms fairly quickly, but, the romance basically went no further until almost the end of the book. I LOVED IT!!! The anticipation build up was perfect and actually kept me not wanting to put the book down.


Okay, so I will admit it. Matilda was the only reason that I was interested in reading this book. Well, the paranormal aspect was good too..LOL I love bulldogs and as many of you know, I have recently lost mine, so, when I saw this book. I just had to read it. Matilda only plays a small role in the story, but it was enough for me to get my bulldog fix.

The Storyline

I enjoy anything paranormal and a story about angels and demons is perfect. The suspense that is given through Ana's dreams really kept me thrown off at wondering what is real and what was simply just a dream.
