Blood Awakening is a short story that works as a prelude for Wenona Hulsey's upcoming novel Burden of Blood. The silly banter between Nichole and Kat is hilarious, their friendship is one that you can admire and relate to. There is so much foreshadowing! Between the stranger in the dark, Nicole's dream and the intriguing ending, the story does a fantastic job of building as you go. Did we mention the love interest? For a small vacation crush, the relationship was done tactfully and not pushed too quickly.

Super prequel to the author's debut novel, Burden of Blood. Nicole's a great character, and her interactions with supporting ones are fun, especially Kat. Great pace. Great intrigue.

Blood Awakening is a back story into the beginning of Nichols powers. This short story gives you insight of what is to come for Nichol and Kat in "Burden of Blood" Wenona Hulsey's upcoming debut novel. It was a great short read and I look forward to the release of "Burden of Blood".

This really is a great read! I really enjoy the interaction between Nicole and Kat,especially their discussion of 'granny underpants',LOL. So,you know there is humor. There is also great fore-shadowing,for e.g.,when a chill runs up Nicole's spine and an inner voice tells her to flee. And that eerie dream... But who and what is that 'thing' she has to flee? And WHAT has he already done to her?! Can leaving Florida and returning to Alabama take her far enough away? But there is more... A really cute love-interest,who happens to be a great kisser!! And who wants to get to know her better. Hmmm,sounds like a hot romance will be developing here. So,do I recommend this story? Darn right,I do. As soon as I came to the end,I needed to check to see if this was a prequel to a book. Happily,it is. Nicole's and Kat's story continues in the book,'Burden of Blood',coming out in August 2011. I guess I can survive the cliffhanger until then?!

Loving these characters and where the book is heading! I think I'm hooked on this series already.  Love the young ladies Nicole and Kat. These girls are young but NOT stupid the way some authors portray female heroines in their books. Nicole and Kat are just your average everyday 20 somethings from a small town. They are wanting a fun filled girls weekend. But end up with much more than fun. Nicole meets Nick and they have a spark from the beginning. Only the mysterious man lurking in the shadows has other plans for Nicole. Nicole has no idea who the man is or where he came from. But Nicole definitely knows that something is not right or good about this man in the shadows. But once the man makes himself known, Nicole will never be the same, physically or emotionally. I have already bought the next book in the series Burden of Blood, can not wait to start it.

This is a quick read that leaves a lot of unanswered questions, but there are several books in the series so just plan on having them all ready to be read in order. I would say that this story is just the beginning of one large story divided up onto really small increments. You meet two main female characters, Nicole and Kat. It appears the story is going to be mostly about Nicole. She is dealing with having lost her mom to cancer when they decide to go to Florida for the weekend. While there they meet some hot guys and Nicole runs into a very creepy guy that sets her nerves on edge. It turns out that she had a very good reason to be worried about this man. He awakens a hidden supernatural aspect of Nicole that she didn't even know existed. Now what is she to do with this new found power? Will she ever see her hot man again? It's really a very interesting tease of a story. I am looking forward to reading the next book.

"I want more!" This is what Wenona Hulsey leaves you screeching at the end of this one! She manages to include a tight friendship, a budding relationship, intrigue, wonder, and danger all into this tease of a book. I refuse to give away any spoilers, so unfortunately, there isn't much I can divulge given the short length of the book. I will however tell you that this is a great intro to her Blood Burden series and I can't wait to see what book two holds. Definitely a story not to be missed!
