The story is great introduction to give enough about the characters and their pasts motives And we witnessed the beginning of Keegan and Breen’s love story we also met with the bad woman who may create conflict about their love interest at the upcoming installments and we learned about upcoming war between evil and good The story finishes with a cliffhanger as we expected So am I in to read what’s gonna happen next Abso freaking lutely I’m hooked I’m chanted I’m all inCannot wait to read Breen Keegan and Marco’s journeysSo much special thanks to NetGalley and St Martin’s Press for sharing this incredible Arc with me in exchange my honest reviewbloginstagramfacebooktwitter

    An author new to me check A fantasy read which I rarely venture into check A book won via Shelf Awareness that is coming out in November check After all that why not jump in and read it So I did and I enjoyed every minute of itBreen is living with her best friend Marco She's kinda frumpy let's people push her around doesn't think much of herself and her mother just adds to that putting her down telling her she will not amount to anything Keep your job which you hate Breen as a school teacher Her mother while travelling has her daughter check her apartment pick up her mail etc While there a wind blows some papers all around and Breen discovers that in her name is an account for 4 million dollars which her mother has been hiding from her She's also been hiding the fate of her father from her So everything changes for Breen and she flees to Ireland the birth place of her father to look for him dragging along Marco But odd things begin to happen to Breen She begins to see a strange man she has the most bizarre dreams that seem real And one day while out walking she fallsthrough a portal to another world Her world Talamh the world of the Fey And here Breen has superpowers where she must fight to protect herself and her world There are spells magic dragons evilbut dragonsSometimes it's great to step outside of a comfort zone and read something totally different And this was one of those times I really enjoyed this one and kept picking it up not wanting to put it down I wanted to know what happened So yeah it's uite long something the dialog could have been trimmed down just too much it's a bit cheesy in places a bit predictable in the romance area and it's part of a series of books to come Hence I had to knock it in my rating I'm not big on series I tend to loose interest and never finish them But this one ended on SUCH a cliff hanger I can't imagine NOT picking up the next in the series when ever that may come Overall a good book for fans of fantasy for fans of Nora Roberts or for those who want to step outside of their comfort zone a bit Also thanks to Shelf Awareness and St Martins Press for an early release copy of this book it in no way influenced my review

    I must say that the storytelling was fantastic This author really brought to life not only Ireland but this alternate universe she created Just the scenery alone was worth the readThis first book is about the heroine Breen learning who she really is and shedding the old Breen her mother tried to mold her into We also get introduced to many characters in this alternate universe that will have a lot to do with the overall storyline The imagery of each of these characters were just as fascinating as their surroundingsI loved seeing Breen shine as she learns where she truly comes from I really liked her character and could relate to her struggles with confidence I also like how she handles many conflicts that dealt with this confidence issue she has that was bred by her motherKeegan was a harder character for me to like He's an honorable man who has this fierce need to protect everyone but that need got in his way of his compassion towards Breen in this book It will be interesting to see how he changes in the next book now that he sees what he's asked of herAs I mentioned before there are many side characters that add to the overall story and I am looking forward to seeing where they all will fit in as things escalate I'm looking forward to the next in the series

    25 stars I am a huge fan of La Nora but I had a very mixed experience with this first entry in a new paranormal series from her The things I liked were the actual magic system and world the fantasy elements are based on They are all coorelated to the Fey and set in an alternate fey realm in Ireland which was really fun But this book feels so messy in terms of structure It is nearly 500 pages and honestly I think it would have been a far stronger book had it been cut down to half that Better still cut to 250 pages of this book then have the next entry start at that point for the last 250 pages That said I am intrigued about where this story may go so if you go into this knowing there's a lot of lag you may find a new series to invest in

    WOW I loved every minute reading this I am a huge Nora Roberts fan especially her trilogies This is a bit different Where before we had 3 books with 3 couples The Awakening is just the beginning for Breen We see her eyes truly open to the world around her and how she manages the many changes in her life Roberts description made me feel like I was smack dab in the middle of Irelandand beyond The ending has me anxious for the rest; one of the draw backs of getting an advance copy

    This is my first Nora Roberts book I know I couldn't believe I have never read anything else by her either And I really enjoyed this first book of her new fantasy seriesRoberts is a very seasoned writer and it totally shows in her way of storytelling I love the pacing of The Awakening It is really consistent and nothing felt rushed or dragging One minor issue I had was the paragraph breaking during conversations On some occasions I had trouble figuring out who was talking But that did not interfere much with the wonderful storyJust one day before the rest of Breen's life began The Awakening is a low fantasy with the Chosen One trope Breen is an extremely relatable American woman in Philadelphia She struggles to pay off student loans works in a job she hated and has never been anything but barely average Or so her mother says Upon discovering her mother's attempt of hiding great things from her she uits her job and spends a summer in Ireland trying to locate her father who has disappeared from her lifeThough I love all the ueer folks in Breen's life I find them falling a little on the stereotypical gay men side of the spectrum But Marco and Sally are the best people I love how they are always there for Breen even before she has broken free of her mother and herself On top of being rather stereotypical most characters ueer or otherwise are not distinctive enough to establish individuality in my mind I hope the seuels will give them personalityFor those wanting this book for the romance it is not the main plot And though it is clear whom Breen gets involved with I find the actual relationship development a bit surprising and it did not work particularly well for me I did not feel much attraction or emotional connection but it is still very important to the series and I hope to see it evolveWhat I love the most about The Awakening is the serenity of the narration the calmness of the surroundings and the peacefulness as Breen begins to hone confidence than she has ever had I also love the message of not letting anyone reprimand you and all the wonderful words dedicated to acceptance belonging and becoming one's true self The Awakening is an exciting read as we embark on Breen's journey of finding herself It ends on a cliffhanger but not a note too nervous I honestly laughed at the ending and cannot wait to read about her adventure I received an e ARC from St Martin's Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
