I really enjoyed Book 2 in the Ariya Adams Trilogy. I picked up right where the first book ended and takes you on a crazy roller coaster ride of events and emotions. Ariya wants to protect her Protectors and therefore doesn't always think her decisions through. This causes much stress to James, Nick and Caroline and puts Ariya is a bad situation. This series has vampires, werewolves, white witches and who knows what else might turn up before the end. I'm loving the characters and think the author has done a great job of making them real for me. Even with all the crazy things going on Riley still lightens the mood. This series really flows well for me. I couldn't wait to jump right into the 3rd book and you should too.

Awakened Book 2 in the Ariya Adams Trilogy by Anna Applegate Four Stars So the a story picks back up and everyone is happy. But how long can happiness last when everyone seems to be after you. No one is safe even the protectors. War was on the horizon and it seemed that Ariya would be left to wait. We learn some new things about James and meet some interesting people. You could feel Ariya's frustration over not being able to help. I liked that the author showed the growth of all the characters. As the story keeps going the pieces are starting to follow into place.

The series keeps getting better! Awakened (Book 2 in the Ariya Adams Trilogy) (Volume 2) is a paranormal/romance. Ariya still can’t believe that the world she’s in ever existed. Let’s just say she’s adjusting to it. It doesn’t help that she still wants her Protector. James bad, but he’s not willing to be in a relationship with her. This puts their close bond in a precarious position. Herself and her friends are in danger once again and Ariya is forced to make decisions that will completely alter their lives forever. Can she do what she needs to do and still maintain her friendships? Will James ever look at her like a woman than as someone he has to protect? These characters in this book are so great! As you read you will be reintroduced to familiar characters that feel like old friends and find new ones along the way. I love that Amma Applegate can write with characters that even though they are the bad guys, you still kind of like them. This book had me from the first page and took me on a rollercoaster ride right to the end. I am eagerly waiting to read the next book in this series.

Awakened Book 2 Ariya Adams Trilogy Ariya has a powerful gift as she recently discovered and it can heal both vampires and werewolves. Her Protector and love, James, has kept her safe so far but a new powerful evil is now after her and her gift. Can he continue to keep her safe? In this second novel I felt like things really ramped up. There was more action and romance. I am happy that Ariya and James finally decided to be together but things become difficult for them in this book. I hated all their struggles. The characters on this novel continued to grow from the previous book. The new foes in this novel definitely seemed stronger. Even though there were a few errors in this novel I feel that it still deserves 5-stars. They can easily be overlooked and there wasn’t anything else I did not like about this book.

Awakened by Anna Applegate is the second book in her Ariya Adams trilogy. As compelling as the first this series is certainly ramping up to be a brilliant read. Ariya is still trying to wrap her head around all she has learned - about the supernatural world, about vampires and werewolves, about herself. She is also trying to stay out of harms way, but given just how much everyone wants her this is easier said than done. But with James there to protect her surely nothing at all could go wrong, right? When a new evil force rises and comes for her she starts to question just how safe she is. And when she finds herself fighting to save those she loves again Ariya night learn the hard way that she any always protect everyone, sometimes some people can’t be saved. I really enjoyed delving back into this world. He continuation of the series has been well done. The story was just as intriguing and kept me reading to the end. The characters held all of the same allure for me as the first book - something which can be hard to do when you are revisiting the same characters. I am excited to see how this trilogy will conclude.

Awakened- Anna Applegate 5-star review Awakened by Anna Applegate is another 5-star book!! This is the second book in the Ariya Adams Trilogy, I would suggest reading this series in order as this book starts off where the first one left off. Just like book one this book is so intense, incredibly captivating and so unexpected. There were so many twist and turns that had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I got so caught up in this amazing world that Anna created that I read this book in one sitting. I completely forgot about the outside world as I followed along with this amazing story. Anna Applegate has quickly been added to my list of favorite paranormal authors, this series is completely original with it’s never a dull moment storyline. I love these characters so much and I feel so invested in their story that I can’t wait to read book 3 to see how Ariya’s story plays out. I would absolutely recommend this book and series to anyone looking for their next romance read!!

Awakened, by Anna Applegate, is the second installment in the Ariya Adams Trilogy. This is a paranormal romances that provides suspense, intrigue, allure, fantasy and more. After reading Protected, the first part of the trilogy, I couldn't wait to delve into the next part of this saga. Ariya's character is well written and she's definitively strong despite the growth she has ahead of her. The author has done an outstanding job of development with Ariya to include in herself, as well as, her relationship with others. The story line was well though out and the pace remained steady - maintaining interest and doesn't fall off track. Anna Applegate is remarkable in her storytelling and it shines in this series. The second book is even better than the first, so this is definitely one of my top series recommendations for this year!!

I give Awakened (Book 2 in the Ariya Adams Trilogy) by Anna Applegate, 5 stars. **This review may contain spoilers from book 1 of the series** Well, now the secret is out. Not only does Ariya know what her friends really are, she also knows what's so special about herself. But it seems like her secret has gotten out and now there are those that would do anything to get her. Not to mention that it seems like someone from James' past is back too. But that's impossible, isn't it? This book picks up where book one left off. Although Ariya is still in college, this book is more about the supernatural side of things and less about college life. She is coming to terms with what she is and what her friends are. The struggle is definitely obvious in the decisions she makes. The author makes you feel many things in this book. There is humor, love, heart-wrenching anguish. You are taken on a roller coaster and you willing go. I will not give anything away, but some much happens in this book and there are many surprises I did not see coming. In my opinion, this book is even better than the first. We get to know the characters from book one better, plus meet some new ones. The story gets deeper and darker. A supernatural romantic suspense that I highly recommend to the New Adult age group and higher. I do think book one should be read first so that this one makes more sense.

Awakened by Anna Applegate is the second book in her Ariya Adams Trilogy and what a great follow up in this unique series. Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone, but I recommend reading them in order so that the characters get to tell their full story to the reader. Continuing the story of Ariya, and her delving into the supernatural world, and is met with how powerful she is. With the ability to heal werewolves and vampires while only using a few drops of her power, she is a highly sought after commodity and her life is constantly in danger. Her boyfriend, a Protector had been able to keep her safe in the past but there are new dangers on the horizon that even he may not be powerful enough to save her from. Will Ariya be able to continue to save those who need to be saved while staying safe on her own? The more that her powers are tested will she be able to stand under the pressure or will she fall to those who want to harm her? Applegate is a newer to me author, this trilogy being the first in my experience of her writing, but I have really enjoyed everything that she has brought forth so far. Her writing style is unique, her characters are full bodied and the world that she created for these characters to live in was so life like I felt like I was in the story with them. If you are looking for a new paranormal series, or even just wanting to add to your reading list and trying something new this is someone that you need to add to your reader! I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

Awakened by Anna Applegate is the second book in the Ariya Adams Trilogy. I definitely recommend reading book one because it has all the start and background information. With her unique ability to heal both vampires and werewolves Ariya is in great danger. She’s finally with James which is great and I really like the two of them.I enjoyed this book. I think the author does a great job in writing and character development. I especially can’t wait to read book three and find out how it ends. 4 star rating!

Awakened (Book 2 in the Ariya Adams Trilogy) by Anna Applegate is the second book in her Ariya Adams Trilogy. This book can be read as a stand alone but I highly suggest you read the previous book to help enhance your enjoyment of this trilogy and you get to know the characters a little bit more. I enjoyed this book more then the first one. This author has the ability to pull me right into her story is ease and keep me engaged until the end. Her characters are creative, connectable and lovable. This paranormal romance has some twists and turns that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat just waiting to see what will happen next. In this installment Ariya has just discovered that the supernatural world is real and they are out for her blood. She has the ability to heal werewolves and vampires with just a couple of drops of her power. Her boyfriend-Protector has been able to keep her safe in the past but now she is exposed to something he is not so sure about. Will they forbidden relationship make it even more dangerous for them? As her reality is tested, will she be able to save those that she needs to? I enjoyed how these characters are strong and their powers are just as strong. Ariya grew so much in this book from the previous one that I can't wait to see her in the third book. I also loved the way that their relationship grew stronger in this one. They have such great chemistry and I love seeing them together. I highly recommend this book. Find out if Ariya will be able to save herself and others that she cares for.

I was given this book in exchange for a honest review (LOP) This is the second book in a trilogy and if you didn't read the first one, get it now! I loved how it picked right up from the ending in Protected and didn't miss a beat. Ariya is still doing the wrong things for what she feels is the right reason, she doesn't want anyone she loves to be hurt because of her but she doesn't understand that when she makes up her own rules she is putting them in even more danger. After Riley was captured she believes that the people after her will try to use James against her and she wouldn't be able to live with herself if Caroline, Nick, Riley or James was killed trying to protect her. I hate reading a review that gives away to much of the story so I will just say Ariya please let your friends do their job and stop pushing James away!! I can't wait for the last books to come out, please don't make us wait to long!!
