“Awaken” Book Review! #Awaken

Awaken (The Patronus)


Written by Sarah M. Ross

Lucy Donovan was supposed to have a weekend of fun in the sun, celebrating her upcoming graduation from college. In a split second, everything changed. A drunk driver ended Lucy’s mortal life.

Lucy opens her eyes to a world she never imagined possible and a new destiny: as a Patronus, a guardian of spirits. Adjusting to her new role and abilities while negotiating this confusing realm will test her limits and push her further than she ever dreamed she would go. From wayward spirits who don’t want her help to soul stealing vampires, and even a stuck-up British royal, Lucy must brave them all to save one spirit she can’t bear to lose.

Further complicating her confusing life is an inexplicable yet growing connection she feels to a member of her team, Max, whose mysterious behavior leaves her both confused and intrigued.

Waking up dead was just the beginning of her problems. Lucy’s death is about to become the greatest adventure of her life.


I am going to preface my review by saying I have never been one to get into the paranormal genre of anything: books, movies, TV shows, etc. If it had a creepy or scary factor, I stayed away. Yes, it's true.

However, when the opportunity came up to review this book, I felt it was time for me to get over my fears. I am so glad I did! I started reading the first few chapters of "Awaken" on a Thursday evening. With the exception of sleeping that night, I pretty much couldn't put it down! I read it straight through and finished it Friday night (around 2am, which technically made it Saturday morning).

Lucy is a great character and reminded me quite a bit of myself. She comes across as willing to learn her new role, extremely determined, more than a little stubborn and a heart full of love for those around her.

The book has a few "creepy" and edge-of-your-seat moments that left you wanting to know what was going to happen next….especially the ending! This is one series I definitely plan on continuing to read. I am really looking forward to the release of the second book later this year.
