YAY! My first review of the new year and…
Guys, Let me tell you, if you haven’t discovered Christy Sloat yet, you need to right now. I mean it. Go look her up (here), buy her books and join her Facebook page! She is awesome! Not only does she write fantastic books, but she holds giveaways and really interacts with her readers.
So today I have the pleasure of reviewing her newest book Awaken, book two in the Slumber Duology.
“Once upon a time I found myself locked away in Spindle Ridge Asylum, punished for a murder I didn’t commit. It was all part of Maleficent’s evil plan. I didn’t remember who I was then … now I do. My name is Aurora, and I am the rightful queen of this realm. Armed with my memories, I’m ready to take charge of my kingdom once more. Happily ever after evades me, yet I long to claim it with my true love, Sawyer, beside me. That fairy tale ending seems impossible with him locked in the thralls of a sleeping curse. As much as I’d love to sit by his bedside and eagerly await a cure, I must first travel into the terrifying Dark Woods to stop Raven from stripping me of all that is rightfully mine. I am not only a queen, but a warrior who will fight for her kingdom. Some may die. Blood will be shed. But when this ending comes, I will settle for nothing less than a blissful ever after.”
-Awaken by Christy Sloat
When I reviewed her first book Slumber I said I didn’t like retellings but that I was blown away by Slumber. If there is one thing I dislike more than retellings is when authors try to draw it out into multiple books.
OK, I was wrong… Awaken is fantastic and really just completed Slumber. Not only was the plot really action driven, which I love, but Christy writes fluidly and leaves me wanting more. Rory is such a likable creative character that every one can relate to but she is surrounded with characters that really amplify her strengths (and weaknesses). I cannot say how much I loved this duology, but I can say that it has earned a special spot on my shelf! Five stars! Ten stars! (here just take my pack of stars)
