Overview

Alone in snowy, remote Whistler village, Ana tries to build a new life since losing her parents. With a cozy condo, a sweet-faced bulldog and an evening job to leave the days free for the slopes, life slips into a great routine. If only she could shake the guilt for not remembering anything about her parents and banish the night terrors that haunt her every dream.
On a whim, Ana goes out with Athen, a guy she’s just met in the Grizzly Pub... The only problem is that she feels like she already knows him.

Within 48 hours of meeting Athen and his family, Ana’s world implodes. She falls for Athen quickly and before she knows it, a past life begins to resurface. As thrilling as the revelations appear at first, she fights against the chilling information that Athen is from the underworld. Soon she begins to struggle as her own supernatural gifts are slowly unveiled, and she realizes that the nightmares she’s been having might be premonitions and not dreams at all.

It is up to Ana to decipher between fact and fiction before it is too late, and her new love, Athen, follows in her same fate - one that is lost between two worlds.

Editorial Reviews

Giselle -
“The plot in Awakening is very intricate. There is an elaborate backstory and complex Nephilim lore. I found the take on angels really well thought out.” Giselle at Xpressoreads.com
Erika -
“It was so different from the standard in YA right now that I am shocked to put it lightly. I really didn’t even see the ending coming and that cliffhanger, OH MY GOD!” www.moonlightbookreviews.com
Heather -
“I enjoy anything paranormal and a story about angels and demons is perfect. The suspense that is given through Ana’s dreams really kept me thrown off at wondering what is real and what was simply just a dream.” Heather at NightlyReading.wordpress.com
Kate -
“Ana's emotions all make sense and feel very organic to her as a character, and early on in the book it was very easy to identify with her.” Kate at UFReviews.com (Urban Fantasy Reviews)

    Wonderful story!

    What an amazing story line! Love this different take on angels & demons. Refreshingly written for ALL AGES which made this book rate a 5 for me. Too many books in this genre throw inappropriate situations in, but not this author. I enjoyed the 1st book in the trilogy so much that I read it in one day. Can't wait to get started on Legions. I Reccomend this series to all. Keep up the great work Karice!

    I couldnt finish it.

    It was just so dull. Im not too keen on the very lovey dovey love at first sight kind of stories but this was too over the top. I understand that there was a past between her and Athen yet it didnt seem to fit into the conflict. If a male comes to where i am staying and stands outside my window all to ask me out, I would be cautious. And she was at first then she did the whole 'im just going to let my heart follow its wants'. Another problem was there wasnt much structure to the characters. Ana vaguely asked a few questions and when she got the slightest answer she was fine with it. That kind of irked me. All in all the story was very slow and i honestly did not enjoy it. I would say give it a go and see how you like it.

    NP...good story idea

    I enjoyed reading this book and thought it was a good story idea. There is drama, romance and intrigue around the characters but it starts to get repetitive even if it's with different people. I bought the second book but gave up on buying any more. It's a shame because it could have pulled in more readers if there was a more creative story line developed.
