About the Author

I'm a multitasking mom of four. When not writing/doing laundry/changing diapers, I like to catch up on episodes of Supernatural and Castle. If you can't find me in front of the computer, I'm most likely watching my DVR.

I've been writing since the first grade, where I wrote a one page story titled "If I was an Indian". My warrior husband was going to be the best hunter, I was going to live in the best teepee and apparently, I was having an affair with the Chief. Racy, I know.

Of the things I'm addicted to sweet tea, movies, and books top the list. My favorite authors include Nora Roberts, Lauren Kate, Kresley Cole, and Gena Showalter. Few of many I love.
Thanks so much for reading!
Sam :)

Awakening is about six young people Sophie, Lilli, Jackson, Tristan, Aiden and Morgan who are brought together through a school study group. They are attacted by a demon and find out that each one has a unique power. They survive this attact and this begins a new journey in their lives. The book has demons, vampires, a secret society and this group of students who are known as the guardians. The group has to face an adventure with adversity, self discovery, pain, loss, blooming love and oh yes fighting the demons. The book began a little slow in the beginning but I believe that was the way the author built the story and characters. Once I got more invested in the story line it moved a long nicely. There is plenty of action, a little blooming romance, personal conflict, and paranormal activity to keep you turning the pages. I enjoyed the way the author dealt with the emotions of the different characters. I feel that it made them easier to connect with thoughout the story kind of like you were right there with them experiencing them yourself. I enjoyed the book and will definately read the next addition to the story to find out where the author takes this group in this adventure. I received this book for free and decided to write a review without being asked to provide one.

A free teenage paranormal book. What good is Ms. Sophie? She doesn't share her visions or her communications with her team mates and spends most of her time stumbling around or frozen in fear. She trained in physical combat for how long and how many hours? And still can't defend herself; she stands and WATCHES her friends and collegues fight. Do NOT want to read anything more about Ms. Sophie!

Meet the 6 guardians as they learn the truth about themselves, their powers and their mission. Watch them face love, heartbreak, loss and still fight the demons that plague them. This book for me was a perfect balance of emotions and thrill. I simply loved it. Would love to read more of this series.

Awakening The Guardians Book 1 Samantha Long I thought this was a great premise for a book. Reborn guardians brought back together once again to fight evil. They all thought they had a rare gift, and once they met they found out they were together. It was wonderful. I really could not decide who was my favorite character even though it seemed they were trying to push Sophie out. You will have to read to decide for yourself. You will not regret it.

Sophie and Lilli are best friends with special abilities. After high school, they decide to move to Boston to get a fresh start. There, during a study group, they discovery everyone has abilities when they are attacked by a demon. All six of them are guardians that are taken into a secret society to help be trained to fight a growing evil that plans to destroy everything. They are the only ones that can stop the evil so they better learn what they can do quickly. I liked the concept of the book. It is original, especially how everyone is liked to one person and the group, not just in the present but the past and future too. Although Tristan was supposed to be do much for Sophie, he irritated me. And how he acted when Sophie lost her brother. Argh!! I admit that I was a little confusion as to what was going on at the beginning but once I got into the story I couldn’t put it down. The ending is a big cliffhanger but I can’t wait to read Sacred to see what happens next. This is a really good young adult paranormal story with a new twist. If this is a genera that you like, I would recommend checking out Awakening. I received a copy of Awakening for free from Booktrope Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

This was an okay book. It is for teens and young adults. Meet Sophie and her friends, whom each have supernatural powers, and now they find out they were born to fight demons. Fast-paced in some areas and a little slow it others. Some good concepts. I think most teens would enjoy this. *** spoiler Sophie could be a bit of a cry baby. After all these yrs of visions she still throws up ?? There are grammatical errors such as like should be love and feel should be fell. I got a little confused what are Sophie's and the others powers? They seemed to gain new ones. On the way to the church Sophie and Lilli are attacked, I was surprised knowing everything the thugs had done to people why Sophie didn't let the guys finish them off? There is death in the book, these guys would deserve it. Sophie dreams of her past life sees her friends and herself taking a potion and talking about being reborn to fight the evil, so why in the world wouldn't they join with Ruth ? It didn't make sense. Then even after their friend was kidnapped, they still don't join ? The group Ruth and Demetri are in, don't know better than to attack vampires at nite? Why didn't they go during the day? Need to tie up some of the loose ends. I wish Ms Long the best!

This book was horribly confusing in parts. There were a ton of sentences that didn't make sense. I reread the beginning a few times trying to make sense of it. Great plot and ideas but needed some help.
