Overview

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.

Wow what an absolutely amazing debut book. I totally fell in love with the original plot and remarkable characters. Characters will have you laughing, cheering them on and crying for them. This is a surprisingly awesome book that made me feel I was right alongside them as they battle supernatural beings, fall in love & have heart wrenching moments. Also look for some amazing side characters to pop in that leave you in shock over who they are. I only had one problem with this book, it ended.

This story takes everything I love about paranormal suspense and beautiful love to make a great read. Lucy is honest and real. She reacts like a normal person would when faced with conflict (emotional and physical). The supporting characters are integral and so fascinating that I want to know their backstory too. I enjoy a book that makes me feel emotionally attached to the characters. I laughed and cried while reading this book. I'm very much looking forward to book 2.

Awaken was such a good book. I laughed at times with this book (`crap on a cracker' is now a fav phrase for me) and I even cried towards the end of the story (my heart was just broken!) Ross did an excellent job with her debut book and I really look forward to more and more from her. And if you don't already believe in soul mates, read Awaken and you just might!

A refreshing new twist on the supernatural. An excellent new take on the afterlife. It's a direction that hasn't really been taken before. I honestly cannot say enough about this book. I could NOT put it down. Normally you don't find this type of intelligence written into the characters of a YA book. I love the witty banter between the characters. The range of emotions is astounding and you really feel the drama & conflict going on around them. I highly recommend this book. It's worth the read!
