Review: Awakening (The Watchers Trilogy #1) by Karice Bolton

Alone in snowy, remote Whistler village, Ana tries to build a new life since losing her parents. With a cozy condo, a sweet-faced bulldog and an evening job to leave the days free for the slopes, life slips into a great routine. If only she could shake the guilt for not remembering anything about her parents and banish the night terrors that haunt her every dream.
On a whim, Ana goes out with Athen, a guy she's just met in the Grizzly Pub... The only problem is that she feels like she already knows him. 
Within 48 hours of meeting Athen and his family, Ana's world implodes. She falls for Athen quickly and before she knows it, a past life begins to resurface. As thrilling as the revelations appear at first, she fights against the chilling information that Athen is from the underworld. Soon she begins to struggle as her own supernatural gifts are slowly unveiled, and she realizes that the nightmares she's been having might be premonitions and not dreams at all.
It is up to Ana to decipher between fact and fiction before it is too late, and her new love, Athen, follows in her same fate - one that is lost between two worlds.

This book is a wonderful beginning to an Otherworldly Trilogy. Everything started happening extremely fast. I really enjoy a fast paced story. The main character is so personable you feel as if she could be one of your closest friends. The supporting characters mesh so well with her to form a truly lovable family. I was so absorbed by this story I finished it in one day. The Author really has a way with descriptive writing. The settings and details are to die for. I could actually picture the places and things being written about. The storyline has a very good foundation for the books to come. Highly enjoyable read.

  1. I have this too but I suck because I haven't read it! I really need to either sprout more heads or truly make time for this. I need to take my TBR seriously.
