"The Awakener by Amanda Strong was a book I really enjoyed. What I really liked about this book was the supernatural elements of demons vs. angels and the use of the Book of Enoch as a base of what Eden and the other characters discover and experience over the course of the story. The book flowed easily, and I really liked the concept of guardian angels. As a whole, I liked all the characters that made up the core group in this first book."- One More Chapter Reviews

Sabrina's Paranormal Palace Blog Review:
I love books that draw me in from the first page and have me staying up late into the night to finish. Even when I am sick and need my sleep I just couldn’t put down this book it was just that amazing!
Eden was just a normal fifteen year old girl. That is until she moves back and reconnects with her old best friend Micah. In a moment of awkwardness she throws her arms around him shocking both her and Micah. But why did Eden hug him? Micah’s life changes the moment Eden hugs him. He sees demons and angels along with having visions. Micah soon figures out that Eden is responsible for this even though she doesn’t know by hugging people she awakens their spiritual powers. Now they need to find all the other people Eden has awakened so Micah can fulfill his destiny as the seer to save the world from impending fire.
I am so happy I got to review this book. I absolutely loved the uniqueness of the story and characters in the world Amanda has created. It was entertaining, fun, interesting, and had such an original story. I loved reading about all the characters even the minor ones. But I especially enjoyed Micah, Eden, and Gabriel. Reading about the ancient city Enoch was my absolute favorite part of this book. I could just keep going on and on about this book but I won’t except to say I highly recommend this book to everyone because it’s just that amazing! Plus I can’t wait for the next book to see what is going to happen next. 5/5 Bloody Fangs
This book was amazing! I've never been one for religious based/sugar coated stories, but this one is not like that... it's different. This is a book about regular teenaged kids who are thrust into a world of angels, demons, prophets, miracles, and apocalyptic destruction. It's exciting, it's terrifying, it's enlightening, and it's enthralling. I love how Amanda Strong weaves a powerful story that brings to light the mysteries of Bible and stories about the end of the world. I can't wait to read the next book! This is definitely a series I will follow through to the end.(Author Holly Kelly)
