This book (and series) has something that a lot of books are missing lately, the good slow build to an emotional pay off. I don't want to say much that might spoil it but at the beginning of the book it took me a little to get into it. By the end I was trying to hide ugly crying tears on a plane at 34,000 feet. Well worth the money and time investment.

I have been waiting for this book to be published and was very fortunate to win an ARC direct from the author.

When I reviewed Broken Dreams - which MUST be read to make any sense of Awakened Desires - I said the author had an amazingly twisted imagination.

Broken Dreams was all Henry. In his trips back through the memories from his appallingly abusive past and what he tells his fellow travellers as they battle through the hordes of undead it was plain that the man they were heading to meet, Gunther, was one of Henry's main torturers; evil personified.

In the months between the first book and now, having seen him on the cover release, I had built Gunther into a right bad b######, to be avoided at all costs. He would rip off babies heads, drain their warm blood, eat the meagre meat and bones for protein and calcium leaving only the littlest pinky bone to pick bits out of his teeth..

Ms Blakeley's considerable talent had set everything up perfectly yes? NO! She is not only amazingly twisted she also has a really mean streak. I would call her a little liar but all she did was write a fantastic book that pulled me right in and encouraged my imagination to run free. She set me up!

Awakened Desires is all about Gunther, from his point of view, and it differs somewhat from how Henry sees things. Gunther's life had not been a bed of roses either. I am no spoiler so I won't tell you what I found but I will provide you with a quote from this self confessed serial killer:

"I truly loved to save people. It was some sort of a hero complex in my minutely flawed personality, people needed me as much as I needed them." Deranged...much?

So I read the first book in this series, Broken Dreams, and seriously had a major-hate-on for Gunther. Awakened Desires is Gunther’s story. What an amazing, wild, roller coaster ride of emotions! I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to throw my kindle or wrap my arms around Gunther. He is the ultimate bad assed bastard that you love to hate and then hate yourself for loving him. Women want to be with him and men want to be him. It is a story of redemption like none other than I have read and full of powerful human emotion – you laugh, cry, rage and melt down during this book. This is his point of view on the impending apocalypse and his story of survival where he meets Quinn and Josie along the way. This rag tag bunch shows him the errors of his ways, teaches him to love and be loved to form a family. And in the process what is like to forgive and be forgiven, especially when they eventually meet up with Henry and his family. Powerful story, well written, I cannot wait to read the third book in this series! A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. 5 out of 5 stars

Awakened Desires is all about Gunther, from his point of view, and it differs somewhat from how Henry sees things. Gunther's life had not been a bed of roses either. I wasn't sure what to expect with this book. I loved the first one, but wasn't too fond of Gunther after reading the first book. This book is full of powerful human emotion, you laugh, cry, rage and melt down while reading this book. I was surprised after reading it. Gunther is the ultimate bad jerk that you love to hate. Women want him and men want to be him. This is Gunther's point of view on the apocalypse that is happening and his story of survival where he meets Quinn and Josie along the way. This bunch shows him the errors of his ways, teaches him to love and be loved to form a family. And in the process what is like to forgive and be forgiven, especially if and when they meet up with Henry and his family. When Henry and Gunther's paths do cross, tempers flare and the past is hard to overlook and move past. Quinn and Eliana help both guys to get along. If you want to know more you will need to get this book. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

<strong>Wow times two</strong>

I am blown away. This is an intense ride that keeps you gripping the handlebar. You never know what will happen with each curve, and when the ride comes to a stop, your heart is pounding out of your chest.
You'll notice my lack of summary, because aside from the book blurb, I don't wish to give away any of the plot. It is so full of surprises at every twist and turn. It's hard not to say anything additional that won't ruin the fun of reading this series.

At first I was a little disappointed that the book didn't pick up right where book 1 left off. I wanted to know what happened, not about Gunther. Who wants to know the bad guy's story? But I forged on with the hopes I would get what I was looking for. The way Gunther's story unfolds shows you that he's not as ruthless as he's painted in book 1. When you discover his background, you start to feel sympathy for him. There were moments that made me laugh, like when he feels something in his heart and thinks he's having a heart attack. (this happens early, it's not a spoiler, I promise). But it makes you realize what a sad environment he was raised in that he doesn't understand emotions. I remained enthralled with his story, despite wanting to know what was going on with the other characters. We do finally get the continuation of the story from book 1. So many parts of this story will have you wanting to throw your book (or kindle, I don't recommend actually throwing either, though. The kindle might break, and the book is huge & would break something). You'll have quite the book hangover after all the crying. The ending will have you grabbing for book 3. Don't let the Zombie word turn you off from this series.
