Overview

For sixteen-year-old Parrish Sorrows, life is about to become a nightmare.

This is the night she’ll wake up to her mother’s convulsions. The night she’ll lose contact with her father and sister in New York. The night 911 will stop answering the phone.

This is the night a mysterious supernatural virus begins its deadly rampage across the globe, killing billions in a matter of days. And just when things can’t get worse, the dead begin to rise.

Parrish must find a way to survive the horror of this new world. Along the way, she’ll team up with the gorgeous boy next door she’s always been drawn to, the snobby ex-bff she’s hated for years, a genius computer nerd, and a young boy who never says a word but is somehow a kindred spirit.

DEATH’S AWAKENING is the first book in Sarra Cannon’s new Eternal Sorrows series. Told from alternating points of view, this story is packed with action, magic, and romance that will leave you begging to find out what happens as this group of teens struggles to survive the zombie apocalypse.

The first book in the series, Beautiful Demons, will be adapted into a graphic novel by Sea Lion Books later this year, and a spin-off series will begin in 2014.

    Recently, I read The Trouble With Goodbye, Sarra Cannon¿s debut

    Recently, I read The Trouble With Goodbye, Sarra Cannon’s debut new adult novel. When I learned that she would also be releasing Death’s Awakening, a young adult paranormal thriller, I was beyond excited and couldn’t wait to read it.

    This novel chronicles the lives of three teenaged neighbors: Parrish (one B-A chick who easily became one of my favorite characters), Noah (the adorable boy next door who has a heart wrenching past), and popular cheerleader Karmen (who’s character I cannot wait to see develop further). We also meet Crash, a young man who is beyond prepared for the apocalypse and a young boy who is out on his own in a big city. Sarra Cannon has created a cast of very diverse characters whose secrets and desires are revealed over the course of the novel.

    Death’s Awakening changes perspective quite often throughout the book. When I first began reading, this was slightly confusing as I was so drawn in by the prologue that when it switched to a different perspective it threw me for a loop. As more connections were made and as we learned why other characters were connected to this story I found the multiple perspectives to give a complete and cohesive view of the terrors that were going on in the story.

    While reading this novel, I was constantly surprised. There were so many twists and turns that I wasn’t even remotely expecting. This book has everything that a young adult (or adult) paranormal thriller fan can want: a terrifying virus that has the whole world suffering, romance, mysterious witches, great characters, and so much more (I don’t want to give too much away). The pacing of the whole story was great with plot twists and character/plot development. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time and finished this book wanting to know when the next one will be out

    Sarra Cannon has once again made me a huge fan of her writing. She is an extremely talented writer and she is self-published which is a feat in and of itself. After reading two of her novels, I highly recommend Death’s Awakening (or any of her other books).

    Death’s Awakening was a wild ride and I look forward to reading the rest of the Eternal Sorrows Series as it’s released.
    4.5/5 stars

    Great book

    Just finished reading this book yesterday and I loved how Sarra has written each character to have different personalities. This is another excellent book to read. I recommend this book to every young adult/ teenager.

    By Momma on September 5, 2013

    It’s no secret how much I love Sarra Cannon’s books. Death’s Awakening was different. Sarra shows an amazing ability for range in her writing. Her characters always have dimension and real personality I love and/or hate them just like she intends for readers to feel.

    I also happen to love zombies so this one is a real bonus for me: Zombies, Young Adult AND Sarra Cannon I was in heaven for the duration of this read.

    I really can’t think of anything I didn’t like about the story except that it ended and I have to wait for the next book. The characters connected to me and one another in meaningful ways, there was nothing too crazy or outlandish about how things went down and how these kids ended up totally on their own, which is often a plot folly for a lot of YA books.

    Another thing that I really appreciated is that Sarra explains exactly why there are zombies. Often times in zombie books/movies/shows there’s no explanation as to why people are suddenly eating one another. The reason for the zombie apocalypse is fully explained in very satisfying way – it’s a great plot point and Sarra took what is typically the weakest part of a zombie flick and made it one of the strongest parts.

    I enjoyed the parts where there was a lot of potential for grossness and gore and it was well done. I didn’t spend a lot of time cringing or skimming past any ickiness.

    I absolutely recommend this book for all ages and I think everyone should read it. Even if zombies aren’t your thing, I’d be willing to bet you’ll enjoy it anyway.
    What does Momma Think?
