  1. Book Review of Awaken (The Patronus: Book One) by Sarah M. Ross

    Lucy Donovan was supposed to have a weekend of fun in the sun, celebrating her upcoming graduation from college. In a split second, everything changed. A drunk driver ended Lucy's mortal life.

    Lucy opens her eyes to a world she never imagined possible and a new destiny: as a Patronus, a guardian of spirits. Adjusting to her new r...ole and abilities while negotiating this confusing realm will test her limits and push her further than she ever dreamed she would go. From wayward spirits who don't want her help to soul stealing vampires, and even a stuck-up British royal, Lucy must brave them all to save one spirit she can't bear to lose.

    Further complicating her life is an inexplicable yet growing connection she feels to a member of her team, Max, whose mysterious behaviour leaves her both confused and intrigued.

    Waking up dead was just the beginning of her problems. Lucy's death is about to become the greatest adventure of her life.

    Review 5 out of 5

    Lucy Donovan is on her way to celebrate her upcoming graduation from college, when a horrific accident with a drunk driver ends her mortal life.
    She wakes up in a strange place to find out that she has a new destiny: to become a Patronus (a guardian of spirits). Trying to adjust to her new environment, Lucy will find herself going up against spirits who don't want her help, vampires wanting to steal the souls she and others are guarding and even a stuck-up British royal.
    To further complicate matters, she feels a growing connection to one of her team mates, Max. His behaviour leaves Lucy confused and intrigued to say the least. Waking up dead is the least of her problems, but it is the beginning of the greatest adventure of her life.

    I'm extremely grateful that I won this book in a swag competition! I wasn't sure what to expect, but boy it didn't disappoint! I loved it! As I began to read Lucy's story, I became immersed in her world. Sarah has created a fantastic adventure/romance. I love her style of writing, and I could easily imagine the characters in my head. Lucy is mature for her age, which is understandable as you get to know her. She is definitely feisty, and does not back down from situations. This tends to get her into trouble, but she just keeps coming out swinging! Her team mates are a great ensemble, and compliment her hot-headedness. Hmm Max! What can I say! He's gorgeous! *fanning oneself!*. Mind you, James and Adam aren't too far behind either! There is only one other girl on the team, Cassie. She's just as feisty as Lucy, but she is more experienced, and is the first friend Lucy makes in her new life. I recommend this book if you want to go on a fantastic adventure. I am now looking forward to reading book two: Avenge, which is due to be released in late summer/fall this year. - Lynn Worton
