From the Back Cover

I see him in my dreams, this mysterious boy.
He comes from
a different time,
a different place,
a different reality.

But there is something that connects us.
We are supposed to be together--bound by the heart of another.
But that's not possible... or is it?

More About the Author

Lisa Cach is the award-winning author of more than twenty-five romantic novels and novellas, ranging across sub-genres from Paranormal, Historical, Contemporary, and Erotica, to Young Adult. She is a two-time finalist for the prestigious RITA Award from the Romance Writers of America.

Lisa Cach was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, where she still lives today, somewhere between the perpetual blanket of clouds and the beds of moss and fern.

Lisa's professional background includes teaching conversational English in Japan, several years working the graveyard shift on a mental health crisis line, and teaching writing while sailing to the Amazon, Morocco, Russia, and everywhere in-between aboard the MV Explorer -- the ship used in the Semester at Sea college program. She has hiked the foothills of the Himalaya, trekked the jungles of Borneo, roamed the Carpathian Mountains of Romania, and paddled the Dordogne River of the Perigord Noir, in France. She has sailed the Caribbean as a working crew member of a research schooner, and through the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands on a small ship.

Her favorite book has always been Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre," while the only book to ever give her nightmares was Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Hound of the Baskervilles." If you can recommend a good ghost story that sends shivers up the back of the neck, she's all ears.

When not writing, she dabbles in drawing, piano, gardening, and cooking... all of which make her sound as if she belongs in the 19th century, but she'd miss the internet if she were stuck there.

"Some people say that love itself is the most powerful magic"

I waited a while before writing this review because I was hoping the words would come to me. I could easily say that this book was amazing, or incredible but those seem so simple compared to what the book really was. This book was...Stunning. It soared way beyond the expectations I had for it. There are so many characteristics about this book that I loved.

The Storyline: I obviously loved the book because of it's unique storyline, but Lisa Cach created something so much more than a simple story. She created such a beautiful world that it was nearly impossible to stop reading. You are whisped away back and forth between 16th century and 21st century France. The more Caitlyn learns and discovers of the castle and her surroundings, the more the book comes alive.

Characters: It has been a long time since I came across such incredibly vivid characters in a book. Each character had something to offer to the story and the book itself. It would have been incomplete had just one character been missing. It is hard to believe that Caitlyn, Raphael and the Chateau de la Fortune are fictional. They were so vibrant and alive. I immediately fell in love with Caitlyn and Raphael, it is hard to put into words what kind of characters they are. They are truly special, and will stay with you long after you've finished reading the book.

It's magical. The author created an enchanting, ghostly world, while taking you on a intense hunt for treasure. My mind was running wild trying to figure out the clues and mystery myself. Each time I would think I had figured it out, a twist came out of nowhere and took me in a completely different direction. The most magical aspect of this book though is the love story.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Lauren "365 Days of Reading" on April 4, 2011
Format: Paperback
SUMMARY: Caitlyn is not like other girls. She wakes every morning from vivid, horrifying nightmares, and is haunted by them throughout the day. None of her friends or family members understand what she's going through. The only person who would understand--her mother--is dead. When Caitlyn receives an invitation to attend a boarding school in France, she jumps at the chance, hoping things will be different. However, at the Chateau de la Fortune, Caitlyn's dreams become even more vivid, and she soon finds herself trying to unlock the secrets that her school houses.

MY THOUGHTS: When I first read the back cover of Wake Unto Me, I had my doubts about the book. It seemed like an average paranormal romance. Well, I'm happy to say that Wake Unto Me was much, much more than I expected.

Wake Unto Me has its (crazy adorable) moments of romance, but its main focus is on solving a mystery. The pieces of the puzzle were well researched and rounded; I found myself amazed at the solution to each clue. It was exciting to read about Caitlyn and Raphael's deductions, and the references to the Knights Templar made my history-loving heart sing.

Caitlyn was a great protagonist; though I didn't enjoy the fact that she was always moping around after not being able to see Raphael, she was otherwise very solid. I liked that even though she was an outsider, she didn't have a jaded outlook on life; she was always thinking positively. Caitlyn's powers were really neat, too; I enjoyed her dreams and the eventual revelation as to what she truly was.

Lisa Cach's writing in Wake Unto Me is gorgeous.

This is a must read. Forget the classifications: YA, paranormal romance. This is quite simply an enjoyable read. Not being a typical reader of this genre, I was skeptical but soon won over by the beautiful language and compelling story. This is a story teller at the peek of her skills.

I highly encourage others to join me and take the plunge. You're welcome, to those who do.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jessica (I Read to Relax) on April 4, 2011
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. The description was intriguing and it fulfilled everything that was promised. First, let me say that I LOVED the setting. The descriptions of the castle that the Fortune School is housed within made me want to jump right onto a plane to head for some of Europe's famous castles. Each stained glass window, each weather-beaten stone stair, each hidden statue just fed more and more into my love of historic buildings. *so good*

Then, even though I couldn't buy at first quite how Caitlyn didn't question her good fortune to win a scholarship to this amazing school, I got wrapped up in everything that was going on in her life and I began to understand exactly how that could happen. Caitlyn's mother's passing, her not fitting in at school, her nightmares...all combined to make one unhappy home life. Of course she jumped at the chance to potentially, irrevocably change her life forever!

However, things never go as easily as they should and Cach did a great job at bringing all of Caitlyn's past right with her to a new setting and then intensifying it. She really ramped it up a notch. Soon poor Caitlyn's so confused about what's real and not that she's spinning in circles and failing her classes.

There are layers upon layers built here of ghosts, prophetic dreams, prophecies, time travel, and dangerous plots. Cach masterfully wove all of these elements together. Though the romantic element was wrapped up a little neatly for me at the end, the other things all falling into place was very satisfying. A great debut.
