Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Awaken was my first writing project. I had the idea for it years ago. However, I wasn't much of a writer back then. Many writing programs, writing groups, and classes later, I have grown tremendously.
The plot for Awaken evolved over four serious draft revisions. The manuscript doesn't look anything like the first in terms of plot structure, but the overall concept of the paranormal aspects remain in tacked. I still would like to rework it one last time and add more back story to the Council of Souls. For now, I'm adding and expanding that in the next book, Oblivion.
For me writing paranormal, fantasy, and science fiction is not for the faint of heart. I find paranormal stories take an enormous amount of brain power. Not only are you dealing with a plot and character development, you have to remember what ability each character has and how they work together. Then to top it off you have to create an entire world. I get very exhausted. But I wouldn't have it any other way.
To offset the grinding out of the paranormal, I enjoy writing contemporary romance. It flows easier because I'm dealing with normal characters and the everyday world.

This is a well-written, exciting tale that kept me glued to my Kindle from start to finish. The characters are interesting, believable, and easy to root for. The plot is refreshingly unique, and I particularly like how the author didn't "spoon-feed" the storyline. Information is offered at just the right pace to allow us to understand what we "need" at the moment, but still maintain plenty of mystery to hold our interest riveted until the end.The romance included just enough love and spice to keep me hungry for more, and speaking of hungry for more, the ending left me excited for the next in the series, but not frustrated with an abrupt cliffhanger. I look forward to continuing on to the sequel!

This story really takes off! It had me hooked and I couldn't put it down. The story was different than anything I've read and I think this series could rival any that currently tops the charts. The writer was able to develop the characters and lay out the details without becoming boring in a relatable way that everyone can follow. An amazing feat for such an intricate story! I love this author's spunk and bold imagination. I can't wait to follow the characters in the next book! Well done Tidmore!

Leora Marks is the Light, the Awakener of Souls who reincarnates to help people awaken and find their purpose in life. In her present lifetime she is reborn as Lily McMaster, a psychiatrist whose mentally ill friend, Rachel Perry has been having visions about the Wood Creek Fire that occurred 30 years ago in Kaloosh, Idaho. Are the visions a part of Rachel’s illness or is there more to it that cannot be explained. To find answers Lily decides to travel to Idaho and investigate further.
Here she meets Gavin Jones, the huge, scarred man whom she calls the “Beast”, she is repulsed by him and yet cannot deny the powerful “blood heat” that flows whenever they are together. How will Gavin tell her that he has been her protector in every lifetime? Will he be able to protect her from the Hound and the Council of Souls and most of all can he help her to “awaken” to the truth about her own powers, about Rachel and about the truth behind the Wood Creek Fire?
The story is enthralling, it holds interest and you cannot stop reading as you want to find out more about the characters. I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more of R.E.S. Tidmore’s books.

For a first novel, R.E.S Tidmore really proved that Indies can write a mean fantasy. I thoroughly enjoyed Awaken from the moment I met Leora or Lily McMaster, the Awakener, and the scarred but sexy and attractive Gavin, her protector. Can you imagine a failed love story every lifetime? And they have to do it all over again in the next one? The Council of Souls cannot allow Leora to Awaken and they try to kill her every time she's reborn and Gavin has to watch her die every time. Yes, she is reborn as a human and must Awaken to her purpose, as the Awakener of souls. As Lily McMasters discovers her identity as the Awakener, she tries to understand her destiny and the strong feelings she has for Gavin. Will she survive her awakening this time? Will they be able to change their destinies?

Loved the story and the characters and I will definitely read Oblivion, the 2nd book of the Awakener series. Highly recommended.

The first book in the series is about Gavin and Leora. It is very intriguing and suspenseful and was very hard to put down. They went through so much for many many years, and yet they still found each other. Their bond was for love and that is the strongest bond of all.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be bonded to someone? Would you want to be bonded by love or would you want to be bonded for your accomplishments? How much would you fight for the one you are bonded to?
I was given an ARC for my honest review.

This paranormal romance has an edgy, contemporary vibe. The close focus on Lily and Gavin thrusts the reader into the intense and sometimes brutal world of their existence, and creates a feeling of rawness and physicality. There is plenty of action and the stakes are high, which means lots of drama and suspense to keep readers interested. But Awaken is not a ‘sweet’ romance – the language is sometimes strong, the sex explicit, and I found the content quite dark and tortured.

Firstly, the title got me. Then as I started delving further and further into Lily's & Gavin's lives, I realized, I really (not only wanted to) needed to read this book, and now, Book #2 in the series, Oblivion, is on my bookshelf!! I love how R.E.S. Tidmore works her characters within the present time knowing the past holds tremendous revelation for them, especially Lily. Tidmore is brilliant at the unfolding of her story and letting the surprise be the true surprise, the mystery a mystery, and the knowing a knowing, with smooth pacing. That may seem confusing to you now, but you'll see what I mean when you read it. As far as I'm concerned, this book is a must on your shelf or kindle carousel. A great writer with good instinct.

I have to confess I am a bit biased as this is one of my neighbors. But I wasn't disappointed with the quality of the writing. The character development is quite good, and the ending leaves me wanting to read the next book.
