From the Back Cover

I see him in my dreams, this mysterious boy.
He comes from
a different time,
a different place,
a different reality.

But there is something that connects us.
We are supposed to be together--bound by the heart of another.
But that's not possible... or is it?

"Some people say that love itself is the most powerful magic"

I waited a while before writing this review because I was hoping the words would come to me. I could easily say that this book was amazing, or incredible but those seem so simple compared to what the book really was. This book was...Stunning. It soared way beyond the expectations I had for it. There are so many characteristics about this book that I loved.

The Storyline: I obviously loved the book because of it's unique storyline, but Lisa Cach created something so much more than a simple story. She created such a beautiful world that it was nearly impossible to stop reading. You are whisped away back and forth between 16th century and 21st century France. The more Caitlyn learns and discovers of the castle and her surroundings, the more the book comes alive.

Characters: It has been a long time since I came across such incredibly vivid characters in a book. Each character had something to offer to the story and the book itself. It would have been incomplete had just one character been missing. It is hard to believe that Caitlyn, Raphael and the Chateau de la Fortune are fictional. They were so vibrant and alive. I immediately fell in love with Caitlyn and Raphael, it is hard to put into words what kind of characters they are. They are truly special, and will stay with you long after you've finished reading the book.

It's magical. The author created an enchanting, ghostly world, while taking you on a intense hunt for treasure. My mind was running wild trying to figure out the clues and mystery myself. Each time I would think I had figured it out, a twist came out of nowhere and took me in a completely different direction. The most magical aspect of this book though is the love story.

SUMMARY: Caitlyn is not like other girls. She wakes every morning from vivid, horrifying nightmares, and is haunted by them throughout the day. None of her friends or family members understand what she's going through. The only person who would understand--her mother--is dead. When Caitlyn receives an invitation to attend a boarding school in France, she jumps at the chance, hoping things will be different. However, at the Chateau de la Fortune, Caitlyn's dreams become even more vivid, and she soon finds herself trying to unlock the secrets that her school houses.

MY THOUGHTS: When I first read the back cover of Wake Unto Me, I had my doubts about the book. It seemed like an average paranormal romance. Well, I'm happy to say that Wake Unto Me was much, much more than I expected.

Wake Unto Me has its (crazy adorable) moments of romance, but its main focus is on solving a mystery. The pieces of the puzzle were well researched and rounded; I found myself amazed at the solution to each clue. It was exciting to read about Caitlyn and Raphael's deductions, and the references to the Knights Templar made my history-loving heart sing.

Caitlyn was a great protagonist; though I didn't enjoy the fact that she was always moping around after not being able to see Raphael, she was otherwise very solid. I liked that even though she was an outsider, she didn't have a jaded outlook on life; she was always thinking positively. Caitlyn's powers were really neat, too; I enjoyed her dreams and the eventual revelation as to what she truly was.

Lisa Cach's writing in Wake Unto Me is gorgeous.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In Wake Unto Me, we meet Caitlyn Monahan, a 15-year-old girl who knows she is different from everyone else and always feels misunderstood and alone. She has very vivid, frightening dreams that feel very real to her but in the past, when she told her father and stepmother about them, they thought she was going crazy. Caitlyn is desperate to get away from her small Oregon town and when she gets an unsolicited and fully paid offer to attend an exclusive private school in France, she jumps at the chance for a new start.

Wake Unto Me has a little bit of everything. Mixed in the unique paranormal elements are bits of European history, some real, some created by the talented author and a gorgeous castle setting in rural France. This story is not what I expected. It starts a little slow, but the mystery behind it keeps you reading and it does pick-up. I don't want to give too much away, the novel's mysteries are best discovered layer by layer.

Something that bothered me was how depressed Caitlyn got. She felt so unloved in Oregon and even though she does not have a very emotional relationship with her father, her stepmother and friends were very affectionate but Caitlyn made no effort to reciprocate. It seems like she chose to be lonely. It's hard for me to read that a 15-year-old decides to give up on her (loving) family and prefers to use some tarot cards her dead mother deals her in a dream to guide her through her life instead. She also gets very depressed toward the end of the book as well, not healthy behavior.

Wake Unto Me is a haunting story with a satisfying ending. I am not sure if there will be a sequel, but it works as a standalone book.

Content: Profanity (in French), Caitlyn uses someone else's prescription drugs to help her fall asleep and induce dreams.
