When a copy of Awaken came my way, I reluctantly agreed to review it I m not ordinarily drawn to animated covers, but, hey, it s a young adult angel book Boy was I surprised Awaken had me from the first page The book begins with a fairly ordinary twenty year old nursing student, Sophia She s bright, responsible, and has a great support system She does, however, have some oddities that hint to who she really is, i.e hair colour and her seemingly spiritual healing capabilities But things aren t al [...]

    15. This book told such a magical and tragic story, blending the past with the present in such a way that actually makes you think, is this real The way that Thomas intertwined history with fantasy was a real treat to get caught up in I was really impressed with the way the biblical elements were executed in this story From the names to the descriptions, everything was well put together and beautifully written.Too many times throughout this book, my heart ached for Sophia Geez, that poor girl could [...]

    17. I thought I d had my fill of YA girl finds out she has super powers books I thought wrong Awaken is a well written and cleverly constructed read, introducing us to Sophia Woodville on the cusp of her 21st birthday when her nicely ordered and normal life is turned upside down Sophia discovers she is in fact an angel, and not just any old angel, but the chosen one, the angel whose destiny is to lead the colony of angels abandoned on Earth back to their homeland.Being such a ordinary girl, this com [...]
