I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure fantasy and even to the romance readers out there. Can't wait for the next book in the series which I already have on pre-order
Anyways, I saw a Facebook posting that this was on sale, so while I was at work (shhhhh, don't tell anyone!), I decided to go on and order this. (Have I mentioned that it's a lot easier to read holding my iPhone as I'm walking at work to and from the restroom, break room, and my desk than a paperback?)
I'm glad I did decide to pick the book up though. I enjoyed reading Xavian and Afina's story.
Was the book the absolute best? No, it wasn't. I found one thing positively annoying with the story...the somewhat constant use of 'traitor'. And I'm not talking about a human traitor- I'm referring to the overused word that was used for penis. If I saw it once, I saw it 20 times. I didn't really count, but I think you get my point.
The characters were interesting- I'm not sure who I want to read about more - Cristobal? Henrik? Regardless, I will be reading the next books in the series.
I'd consider this a paranormal historical read by the way. If you're wanting non-paranormal, this probably isn't your story that you should be reading, unless you have an open mind. :)
Knight Awakened takes place in 14th century Transylvania.. and no there aren't any vampires.. well not yet who knows what the ever creative Ms Callahan has up her sleeve for future books. What this book does have is mystic, mythos and majesty.
Kidnapped from his family at a young age, Xavian Ramir was raised to be an assassin. And type A personality that he is, he became the best there was. Until one day he had enough and walked away.. only to be followed by those who believed in him. Together they formed a circle dedicated to destroying the men who had made them monsters. Devoted to saving as many boys as possible. Taking jobs that used his skill set to fund their lives. Until one day, he is asked by Vladimir Barbu, the wanna be King, to bring back one girl..
Afina Lazar, felt like she had been running forever. Barely escaping with her niece, she has lived on wit alone for at least two years.. Knowing that Vlad has plans for her. Only she doesn't quite understand why, she is a flawed healer.. Her heritage marks her as the next priestess to the goddess but there is nothing there.. no power, no hope. All she has left is the amulet that shows her heritage.
Xavian and Afina combust!! These two strike sparks off each other from first meeting and both know there is something there. Even when Xavian kidnaps Afina she is drawn to him, knowing he will never hurt her. And Xavian, vows to protect her at all costs, even from himself. Both of these strong characters are nurturers and yet neither sees their own worth. Integrity, loyalty, determination to give others a better life.. yeah heroes.. both of them!
Entering this world set in what is still the most mysterious place on earth, The Carpathian Mountains, we discover untold wonders. Great Evil that can only be combated by Great Courage. From it's secret recesses legends rise from the mist. And Ms Callahan tells a wonderful story wrapped in the reality of such a world. Her characters are mere mortals that walk amongst gods and find that inner something that only few have.
As this is the first book, there is some world building and some characters that I can not wait to learn more of.. And since this is Coreene, yes there are dragons.. These dragons could be the ancestors of her Dragonfury series but she says not.. *sigh* I know I have that need to tie things up all pretty.. but this book doesn't need Ms Callahan's previous works.. nope it stands on it's own!
Get in on the beginning with this one, you won't be disappointed. Well, except that you have to wait, like the rest of us, for the next book.. I wonder if I can bribe Coreene to just send me all her books as soon as she finishes them (hey don't laugh, I keep trying.. she keeps making excuses, you know like she has to make a living or some such nonsense)
I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book.. full out 5plus stars!!
