The Waking of Ghosts is another great book by Lilliana Rose. This one focuses on the Lost Souls or the mifits of the paranormal world. There are vampires, shifters, witches, fae, ghost hunters. The book starts out talking about Amy, who is the founder of the Lost Souls Academy. She stumbles upon a library that is full of books so those that enroll in the Academy have plenty to read. Zarya is a witch and a ghost hunter and she has been shunned be her coven and family. She has been on her own for over a year, and would like to increase her skill at ghost hunting. When she is invited to the Academy she is unsure of whether she wants to join or not, and burns the invitation. She finds it and is drawn to it immediately. It's a good thing because she has a ghost that seems attached to her, and she is going to have to be extra careful and very strong to defeat it. This book kept my attention from page 1 until the end. I have become quite a big fan of Ms. Rose's books over the years, and this one did not disappoint me. I very much look forward to the 2nd book and continuing to read this newest saga.
If you like paranormal books then this is one for you.
I really enjoyed the blurb for this book, and I thought it would be a very interesting read. What happened next was a story with so many grammar mistakes that it made my head spin. Fragmented sentences, words duplicated, and many other errors.
I found it very slow and repetitive with individual character thoughts. And there are few character interactions. It was like being stuck in someone's mind and hearing their inner thoughts about themselves, and others but not getting that actual interaction between them and others.
Another issue is that there is a lot of repeating information, and characters reiterating their goals to themselves when the POV switches back to them. I found this unnecessary since I read the book in just a couple of hours. I guess if you are one of those who put down a book and read multiple books at a time this may be helpful to you, but for me, it was redundant and bordered on boring.
It does have promise and isn't a horrible book. I would probably recommend it if someone was looking for something along the lines of the story, but I would tell them it is a very slow starting book. I will say the last few chapters really made the story for me, so that shows some promise I suppose.
I received an advance review copy for free.
Zarya was banished from her coven and now does what she must to survive. She’s part witch and part ghosthunter, making a living by hunting entities who haunt others. She’s a teenager looking to find her way in the world and her place in the many worlds filled with magic. She finds sanctuary at the school when she starts being harassed by a ghost.
The Academy is a school where the misfits are accepted and begin to learn about themselves, each other, magical capabilities, and how to harness magic. The story is told from multiple points-of-view even though Zarya is the main character. The story is unique and filled with twists, turns, and a plethora of supernatural creatures and events. The world created by the author is interesting and the story is engaging.
Now Zarya is trying to make a living and to keep a place to live by hunting ghosts. Zarya helps people rid their homes of ghosts. Zarya is known as a ghosthunter, a freelancing ghosthunter.
Avery Blackbird has opened an academy for people with lost souls or someone who doesn’t quite fit in, in other places. Avery’s school consists of misfits like vampires without fangs or werewolves without a pack plus other paranormal misfits.
Upon Zarya’s arrival at the Lost Souls Academy she has a run in with a ghost at the school. Zarya does what she does best, yeah you guessed it she tries to banish the ghost and send him on his merry way when she learns that this particular ghost may not be going anywhere as he is the founder Avery Blackbird’s familiar. Yeah her first day could be her last. Will Zarya get kicked out of another school? Can she fit in with her new surroundings and fellow misfits?
The Waking of Ghosts is a great start to a whole new series of academy books. It has all the paranormal creatures like vampires, witches, werewolves, fae, ghosts and misfits that don’t fit in. The Waking of Ghosts also has enough action to catch your attention and keep you hanging on with every turn of the pages waiting to see what situation Zarya will find herself in next.
If you like paranormal creatures like vampires, werewolves, fae and ghosts then you are going to fall in love with The Waking of Ghosts.
