"The concept of Shepherds: Awakening by Damian Connolly is intriguing and ingenious. There's sincerity and other-worldliness in it that kept the story relevant and engaging to me, as Aisling reconnects with her father and learns about the world known as Limbo, as well as her duty as a Shepherd that has been passed down in the family. Following Aisling's self-discovery and learning about her new skills in addition to her responsibility is fascinating. Her ups and downs, her effort to balance her life in the Limbo world, and her life with her mother in the real world kept me wanting to read what happens next.
"On the whole, Shepherds: Awakening is a compelling and enjoyable read. This is a commendable literary work from Connolly and I'm very interested to see what he will come up with next. To be frank, I'm waiting for a sequel." - Readers' Favourite, 5 stars
