Awaken (Divine Hunter #1) By L.J. Sealey

Awaken - L.J. Sealey



Michael Warden used to live a normal life. A successful entrepreneur, he had everything until his life got taken away from him. Literally. Now he is trapped in a world that shouldn't exist, fighting things that should only exist in nightmares in a quest to find out the truth about what happened to him.

Lacy Holloway is finally content in the little town of Oakland, Garrett Co. Working at the local university, she has finally allowed herself to move on from the one thing that had haunted her past. Aside from an unsettling string of suicides at her place of work, Lacy is happy. Then a new colleague enters her life. Michael is handsome, smart and their friendship is instant... Easy.

That is, until another student attempts to take her own life and Lacy is hurled into a world of nightmares which she soon discovers Michael is already a part of. As they are forced to face demons, both the supernatural and the emotional kind, they also have to face the realization that they are both beginning to feel things for each other that neither of them expected, least of all Michael. As well as trying not to fall too deeply for the woman who has captivated him, he is shocked to discover things about his very existence that could change both their lives and the world as they know it.



My thoughts:


This was a fairly good book. While I liked the story and it was very interesting and exciting but it didn’t blow my sock off. Most of the things were pretty predictable and I saw them coming a mile away.


But, like I said it was a interesting story and made for a good read and was fast to read which is always a plus for me.


I liked all the characters; they were nicely developed and easy to relate to in their situations. The only thing for me personally was that I didn’t feel that much chemistry between Michal and Lacy as I would have liked. The longed for each other from the start but resisted, each for their own reasons but when they finally gave into their desires I thought it could have had more chemistry between them.


Over all I liked it and I will surely read the second book to see where it is going.


I give this book 3 ★
