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.

Amber & Dionne get Serious with Author Edward Lazellari

Our Awesome guest on Tweep Nation today is traditionally published author, Edward Lazellari. He’s a New York author who is about to release the second book in his urban fantasy series. The first book, Awakenings, was super awesome (look out for my review). He’s worked as an artist for Marvel Comics and apparently he’s the reason Amber failed geometry—listen to find out why. Edward also has some great advice for those of you who dream of being successful at writing. An inspirational and entertaining interview. Don’t miss it! Go now! (sorry, was that too bossy?)

Just a reminder, if you can’t listen on iTunes we’re also on Newbiewriters.com and Stitcher.
