"Can fighting for the right side be the wrong thing to do?
Draven, the tyrant ruler of Elyndia for the last one thousand years, searches for the one who can fulfill his prophecy.
The Paladins, an elite band of warriors sworn to protect their way of life at all cost, search for the one with the ability to bring their world crumbling down.
An innocent girl, tormented by demons only she can see, lives on the brink of insanity and longs for a life of peace.
When seventeen-year-old Jade Rosenberg reads from an antique book, she has no idea she just read an incantation awaking her inherited power. But when opposing—and equally terrifying—groups invade her home, she learns she is descended from an enchanted realm and a member of a powerful race thought to have been hunted to extinction.
Ripped from her world, Jade is forced to seek refuge from those who want her dead. She is given one of two options and the time has come for her to make a choice: assassinate their sworn enemy…
Or sacrifice her soul."
The book "Awakened" by Kriston Johnston had me right from the start! I gave this book 4 stars.
First, I thought for fantasy readers who enjoy detail in the world the author has created this book was great. I could picture it vividly in my mind.
I'm a bit biased when it comes to Angels & Demons so I was pulled even further in with the subject matter.
It was a nice change of pace to not have the romance aspect of the book be front and center. There was just enough to spice things up but it was just part of an exciting read.
If you enjoy adventure , unique and detailed style of writing, I highly reccomend "Awakened" by Kriston Johnston to a wide variety of readers. It suits the fantasy genre, adventure, drama, for me this book had it all. I'll defiantly be reading more books by Ms. Johnston .
