Editorial Reviews


Award-Winning Urban Fantasy:
2019 N.N. Light Book Award Winner
2020 InD'tale Magazine RONE Award Nominee

4.5 stars from InD'tale Magazine: "Fans of television shows like 'Constantine' or 'Supernatural' will absolutely love this book. WAKING THE DEAD, as its title implies, is full of demons, ghosts and the supernatural. Not only that, the novel dives deep into religion, legend, and mythology. Seeing characters like Michael and Charon pop in will make paranormal fans cheer! The main character, Hyacinth, is phenomenal and develops so much in this book. The only issue is that readers may want to read the first book in the series first. This can be read as a standalone, but it is obvious that the book picks up right after the first book, leaving some questions as to what is going on."

5+ stars from N.N. Light's Book Heaven: "I've been waiting a year for this sequel to the RITA® Finalist, DEBRIEFING THE DEAD, and oh boy, it was worth it. From the first page, I was riveted to the story. Hyacinth gets to experience the darker part of being dead and working for Michael. There's a definite darker feel to this book and I loved it. Mythology, demon-worshiping, demon prejudice and romance all play a part in WAKING THE DEAD. There's a certain sub-plot that not only rang true historically but scared the crap out of me. I had to continue telling myself it was only a story, not real. Because if it was, damn, I'm heading for the hills."

5 stars from The Paranormal Romance Guild: "[WAKING THE DEAD] is like book one [in the series], fun in a strange way as I read just how much trouble Hyacinth can get into. Geordi is a wonderful seven year old and smart beyond his years. The book ends in a cliffhanger and although that is something I totally hate, every once in a while a book and the characters are so good I just overlook that, and this is one of those books and series."
