    1. I received this book through First Reads.I was pleasantly surprised with this one I honestly went into it not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did Winning a book, that sounds interesting, can always be hit or miss but this one definitely hit the mark in terms of an interesting plot Was it perfect No, some of the dialogue seemed to get a bit repetitive and explaining some of the situations, that happened along the way, seemed to defy logic but I could look past the imperfections a I received th [...]


    2. Thanks to Harper Voyager for the review copy.Let s get this out of the way I have a few biases when it comes to my reading I am not a fan of collaboration novels I have never read a novel that was written by two or authors that I enjoyed I also don t like ber basic thrillers Awakened is both with one of the authors being a television star.I went into this with an open mind, though The book deserved that I was sent this in exchange for an honest review, and I wanted to give the Thanks to H [...]

    5. This book was sent to me by Haper Voyager in exchange for an honest review.This book was entertaining, but sort of in the same way action movies with not a lot of substance are entertaining Even though the marketing for this book says it s horror, I felt like it was of a political thriller than a horror novel Sure, there was gore and evil subterranean creatures, but I like my horror to be darker and a lot less political.Some of the characters are likable, but I felt like most of them were This b [...]


    6. I ve not settled on a rating for this yet, I need some time to mull it over Review to come soon


    7. I don t always love sci fi reads for some reason but every now and then I come across I just can t say no to Chalk it up to curiosity or a great synopsis, either way I feel like I need to read them Awakened was truly a different kind of read Part dystopian, part sci fi and part thriller, it kept me interested and turning the pages often than not With a conspiracy theory twist I didn t see coming, this truly stood out compared to others I have read and promises to be a series that will k I don t [...]
