    I received a copy of Awaken from the author to review This is the first time an author has sent me their book to review.I thought Sophia was pretty cool and loved the sound of her rainbow hair She s been thrust into a situation she really hasn t been prepared for at all and instead of crumbling under the weight on her shoulders she decides to try to do her best She definitely has moments of doubt but doesn t let them stop her from trying to do good I was also glad to see that she wasn t goin I received a copy of Awaken from the author to review This is the first time an author has sent me their book to review.I thought Sophia was pretty cool and loved the sound of her rainbow hair She s been thrust into a situation she really hasn t been prepared for at all and instead of crumbling under the weight on her shoulders she decides to try to do her best She definitely has moments of doubt but doesn t let them stop her from trying to do good I was also glad to see that she wasn t going to let these angels push her around and fought for the things that were important to her.Like her best friend Jasmine Wow is she a handful but so funny at the same time I think Jasmine and Sophia were competing for favourite character for me I m not really sure who likeI like them both Then there was Jasmine s brother Ben I had this weird feeling about him at the start of the book when he was running an errand but I thought I was jumping to random conclusions but I couldn t believe that I was right I don t know how I figured it out but I did and then I thought I was crazy so when it was revealed at the end I was like whaaaaat The ending of Awaken was really good Like I said I didn t see it coming but at the same time I did I think I talked myself out of it earlier in the book because I thought I was crazy It will make the sequel, Surrender I think , very interesting I m not sure when the sequel will be out.There were a couple of things that annoyed me but I think that may have been because I left the book at a friends house and didn t get it back for a little over a week Obviously I had to stop reading it and I m not sure if that s why the explanations that the angels gave Sophia felt drawn out, they didn t tell her everything straight away and if that was me I think the not knowing and being expected to just go along with everything would drive me crazy I don t know how she did it Again, I m not sure if it was because I couldn t read the book for a while or it was drawn out through the story anyway.I think this is Thomas s debut novel please don t quote me on that and if it is it was really good I can t wait to see what s next for Sophia in the sequel The ending of Awaken was sooo good that I wanted the next book straight away.If you haven t heard of Awaken I definitely recommend looking it up

    Awaken is the debut novel from Australian author, G R Thomas It s a heady mix of history, mythology and biblical references along with the creation of an entirely new fantasy realm for us to dwell in That s a tough call for any author to pull off but Thomas does this beautifully The main character, Sophia Woodville, is a likeable protagonist, who is thrown into a new life that she never dreamt existed We see her struggle with her new found status, never losing her sense of morality or love f Awaken is the debut novel from Australian author, G R Thomas It s a heady mix of history, mythology and biblical references along with the creation of an entirely new fantasy realm for us to dwell in That s a tough call for any author to pull off but Thomas does this beautifully The main character, Sophia Woodville, is a likeable protagonist, who is thrown into a new life that she never dreamt existed We see her struggle with her new found status, never losing her sense of morality or love for her family.The supporting characters were all very well developed, with their owns needs and back story I really liked Nik ael and Koi, and I loved the scenes set in England as I know each place very well One of my favourite parts was the underground sanctuary, which was extremely visual and compelling.The plot twist at the end was a real why did I not see this coming moment.I had to put this down for a while due to my own editing deadline, but I devoured the last 150 pages very quickly A captivating debut novel, Ms Thomas, well done

    This is not a genre I usually read in fact, I d have to say this is my first urban fantasy dystopian book I ve read And I wasn t disappointed The author wrote an engaging, descriptive world that I felt drawn into I was left totally amazed at how she was able to create an entirely new world complete with language and people and be able to blend it so seamlessly with the modern day Well done GR Thomas

    4 out of 5 stars for Awaken by G.R ThomasAwaken is the debut novel for writer G.R Thomas as well as the first in what promises to be an incredibly engaging urban fantasy series Sophia Woodville has always known she was different A nursing student with rainbow hair and the extraordinary ability to heal others, Sophia just wants to live a semi quiet life The polar opposite from her best friend Jasmine who is a ball of energy Jasmine and her brother Ben have been there for Sophia for a long t 4 out of 5 stars for Awaken by G.R ThomasAwaken is the debut novel for writer G.R Thomas as well as the first in what promises to be an incredibly engaging urban fantasy series Sophia Woodville has always known she was different A nursing student with rainbow hair and the extraordinary ability to heal others, Sophia just wants to live a semi quiet life The polar opposite from her best friend Jasmine who is a ball of energy Jasmine and her brother Ben have been there for Sophia for a long time They consider each other family along with Sophia s grandmother Nan One day, in the blink of an eye, Sophia s so called quiet existence ends Everyone she loves is in jeopardy Those she thought she trusted have been lying to her and she s no longer sure who to rely and the only one who can fix it is her.Thomas beautifully expressive writing makes it easy to feel you re a part of this world she created and lose yourself inside without bogging us as readers down with paragraph after paragraph of descriptive information Thomas wastes no time getting right to the good stuff, almost immediately we are plunged into the action Once I began this book it was hard to put it down, too excited to see what was coming next and the surprises continually being thrown my way The plot twists in this book were exhilarating and constantly had me saying WHAT No Way While this is not a religious book by any means it does make references to some well known biblical and mythological figures The seamless melding of the two was interesting and something that I personally haven t read before There were some minor spelling and grammatical errors but in no way was enough to detract from the story Awaken ends on a cliffhanger and I am chomping at the bit to see how the rest of this story plays out and where Sophia s quest will take her

    I first discovered this book on Sarina Langer s blog Her praise assured me that I had to read it And I am extremely glad that I have Sophia Woodhouse is a young nurse with a unique mark on her face and a special talent for healing But she is an ordinary girl by all other means, working during the day and spending time with friends at night The normalcy of her life is swiftly ended when a coworker is attacked and Sophia learns that someone is after her and has been watching her for some time I first discovered this book on Sarina Langer s blog Her praise assured me that I had to read it And I am extremely glad that I have Sophia Woodhouse is a young nurse with a unique mark on her face and a special talent for healing But she is an ordinary girl by all other means, working during the day and spending time with friends at night The normalcy of her life is swiftly ended when a coworker is attacked and Sophia learns that someone is after her and has been watching her for some time.A classic yarn about a girl who discovers abilities she never knew she had, there is nothing contrived about this story What sets it most apart is the impeccable world building Thomas excels at envisioning a new mythos for the world, reinterpreting the stories of the Bible, the concepts of angels and Watchers and making it completely her own She does it so convincingly and with such beautiful language and draws the reader into her world without confusing or overwhelming with her descriptions History bends at her will and the deftness of it is astounding The characters too are well drawn and elicit sympathy and laughter Sophia is a strong protagonist who is reluctant to accept her true origins and the role she is to play Her mentors are at once compassionate creatures, but also firm hands that know the importance of their mission Then there are her friends from her old life, her ties to who she was, to keep her grounded And then there s Nik ael, who s past and present create a conflicted character with ambiguous plans.And then there s that ending A cliffhanger that leaves you wishing for the next book Fortunately, it s already out, so the wait won t be a long one G.R Thomas has crafted a stunning debut with an unforgettable cast of characters and a unique plot A well woven narrative, full of heart, written with rich, flowing language that pulls you in

    This book definitely has a lot of religious and mythical subtext, but Thomas has taken these elements and worked them into a unique, fantasy story of angels, satans, and higher beings Don t worry if you shy away from books with religious tones, as this is definitely a fantasy However, Sophia s story really does make you question what is out there.There is a wealth of interesting characters and beings, and the world building is well researched and woven into the narrative Sophia is a relatable This book definitely has a lot of religious and mythical subtext, but Thomas has taken these elements and worked them into a unique, fantasy story of angels, satans, and higher beings Don t worry if you shy away from books with religious tones, as this is definitely a fantasy However, Sophia s story really does make you question what is out there.There is a wealth of interesting characters and beings, and the world building is well researched and woven into the narrative Sophia is a relatable character, thrust into a strange world where she is of most importance A few times, I did question Sophia s naivety and the way she didn t want to hear the truth at first I guess that s because I m the opposite character and wouldn t be satisfied until I knew everything and anything of relevance as soon as the need arose.The book felt very lengthy and this is partly down to the slow pace at the beginning laced with lots of info dumps, but once you are into the story, the narrative flows faster and the action picks up
