I was so excited when the author contacted me to review this book. I loved the first one so much, so I was super excited to see what happens next. Let me start with what I LOVED about this book :)! When Adam is captured by The Agency they erase his memories of Livia and they train him to be a soldier. When they are out on a mission he sees Livia and cannot understand the feelings that come up when he sees her. He realizes that Livia is the girl he keeps seeing in his dreams. Livia can see his struggle when they meet eyes, but cannot convince him to come with her. Livia and Daniel get together in Alaska and decide it's time to locate the other kids like them. Livia only agrees when Daniel tells her that he will help her save her love Adam. There is so much going on in this book. Run ins with The Agency. Meeting new characters with abilities. Which is my favorite part :). Trying to bring The Agency down. There is a plan to clone the kids with abilities, and some people from the inside are also trying to stop it. This book is exciting, and has lots of escapes going on. It's great. It was hard to put down, and was fast moving the whole time. Someone was always watching. It was a bit creepy how The Agency seemed to always know where the "enhanced" kids were. Now....I am sooo sad to say this because I really do love this book. BUT, I think there might be a love triangle coming. I hate love triangles more than anything. It is the only reason why I am not giving this a 5 star. I am excited to see what the next book brings, but I am not excited about the triangle I am going to have to go through. They just frustrate me soooooooo bad. Source: I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way for this review. These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the book.

I had the opportunity to be a beta reader for this novel and I’m very satisfied with the result. Adam is taken away from what he knows as a normal life and become part of The Agency that leads him to believe he is making a better world with the missions assigned to him and members of the team. Even with all Brooklyn's effort to try to replace his memories, Adam doesn’t seem to be able to forget the blue eyes from the girl of his dreams. Meanwhile, Livia and Daniel take a journey through dangerous situations to follow their plan to rescue Adam and find others like them. Trying to stay under the radar as much as they can , they train and learn how to better use their abilities to fight The Agency, that is also looking for them and the others. Awakened brings strong emotions and situations through the character's feelings and actions. Love and hate, trust and betrayal, friendship and doubts but also a lot of action. I personally liked this sequel even more than the the first book. The characters are stronger and their personalities are well distinctive from each other.  The book is very well developed, taking enough time to explain clearly what needed to be explained to make us understand what is necessary but at the same time not being overdetailed. Patricia Vanasse managed to write a book without holes and kept a great pace on this story, bringing romance but also a lot of action , there was a point that I could not put the book down. I loved how well the characters mananged to interact their abilities when they needed to execute their plans. The humor and sarcasm on many comments of some characters stole laughs from me, the romantic scenes took my breath away and the action scenes kept my eyes glued to the book. I don't want to spoil anything but I can tell the end is very surprising. I loved this novel and I can't wait to know what will happen next.
