Urban yet Epic – Awakenings Gets 5 Pointy Stars

We recently had Edward Lazellari as a guest on Tweep Nation, but don’t let that fool you—my review is honest (just ask Amber how hard it is to get 5 stars from moi). This was one hellava good book. Read on…

I’m not normally into fantasy set in the ‘real’ world, as I love dragons and traditional fantasy worlds, however, this book changed that. The author is skilled at creating atmosphere and drawing a clear picture without overdoing it. Without giving too much away, the setting is in present-day United States with main characters who are of another time and place. I would call this an epic in the sense that there is a battle of good against evil and there is certainly a race against time. The tension present in this book ensures you’ll be turning the pages, eager to find out what happens next.

The characters were three-dimensional (thank goodness), the plot rich, and the pacing fast. This book had me turning the pages and forgetting the time—I always love it when a book does that. It is the first in a series, which isn’t stated on the cover, but I was aware, as I’d read other reviews. I’m eagerly awaiting the next book from this talented author and am very happy there are more books to come.
