Visions of Chains is the third installment in The Awakening series and this book just reminds me of why I love Regan Hastings. She writes fast paced novels with intense romance that will have you glued to the pages from start to finish.
In this book we focus on Finn and Diedre. While the end goal for each couple is the same, find the artifact they hid, reunite all of them together and fix the mistakes they made eight hundred years ago, Regan has an amazing ability to make each journey unique. The

In the third book of the Awakening series; VISIONS OF CHAINS delivers another intense and passionate story with a new couple; Deidre and Finn. I love the way the witch hunts and hysteria is translated to a modern setting with guns and GPS trackers. It’s an interesting ‘what if’ scenario involving civil liberties being slowly stripped away and accused witches being shuffled off to internment camps.

The world building gets bigger and more in depth with eac

The book was good, but once again what I had assumed was a trilogy, is an unfinished series. This book was written in 2012, and I don't see any other titles. I know it's actually Maureen Child. If you aren't going to finish the series then close the plot lines.

One of the Most Powerful Witches in the World...

Eight hundred years ago, the original great coven of seven witches attempted to gain power with a Black Silver Artifact. Instead, they opened a gateway to Hell. In atonement, the witches each hid a part of the Artifact and their power was bound. Now the time of the Awakening is upon the reincarnated witches, and it's within their power to withstand the dark call of the Artifact. Each witch has an immortal Eternal, their destined mate, who will serv

As seen on

Visions of Chains gives us a vision of an America turned in upon itself to exterminate the witches. The First Amendment is in danger of being overthrown so as to prevent the naysayers and yeahsayers alike from forming opinions about the witch topic.

Over top of this political witch hunt, we have Deidre, the President's daughter, discovering that she may just be one of the Chosen Ones (I have invented this title; just know she has incredible power). The Chosen Ones each

Deidre Sterling is the daughter of the President of the United States and she knows better than anyone that she has an image to uphold. Holding it up is another story because Deidre’s main cause is to fight against the torment of the witches. When Deidre’s friend, Shauna, recruit her into a new mission to fight with witches, she discovers that she is a part of the most powerful coven of witches ever.

Finn has been waiting over eight centuries for Deidre’s power to awaken and for them to begin the

Deidre Sterilng tries to save the witches from the internment camps and the executions. She tries to help by staging peacful protest for witches' rights. She has even gone to her mother for help. She belives that her mother can do more to help the women who are accused of being withes because she is the President of the United States. Her mother wants Deidre to stay out of the limelight and not let the public know she is fighting for rights for the witches. Deidre does whatever she can but she i ...more
Deidre made some stupid moves, including going to see her mother after being told to wait for Finn. One day wouldn't have killed her surely?

It was different from the previous books but I'm not sure I like the direction that Deidre and Finn took, so bloody proud I wanted to slap sense into them. Yeah yeah eternity with someone you don't love sucks, but bloody hell THE WORLD IS IN DANGER. It was selfish of both of them to think their relationship issues are more important than the freaking world.

With this being the third book, I pretty much knew what to expect from this author. I am pleased to announce that, while I still hold the first two a little closer to my heart, this one was pretty awesome too!

Deidre is one strong heroine. I love me some Alpha females. Here she is on a rebellious streak against everyone who is out to "use" her. She has a strong will and one big heart. She is hell bent on saving witches from camps where they are to be killed for

3 1/2*s Deidre Sterling is the president's daughter and an advocate for witches' rights. When she goes on a raid to free some witches who are to be executed, she is kidnapped by Finn, the leader of a witch freedom terrorist group. While in mortal danger, Deidre discovers that she herself is a witch, and that Finn is her destined mate and guardian, her Eternal.

Finn and Deidre have a mission to accomplish. They must mate, increasing her powers, so that she can find her piece of an ancient Artifact
this book was highly disappointing and I'm glad it wasn't the first book id read in the series or I wouldn't have continied. the characters in this one were essentially the same as the last meither trusting the other and planning to go their seperate ways when it was all over-if this soinds familiar its because thats exactly how the characters in the last book felt which was disappointing because I wanted something new like the difference between the first and second books. the characters were a ...more

This is the third book in the series and I really enjoyed it. I love the "world" that Regan built with the witches living in modern times and being persecuted. I suggest starting with the first book, but you don't have to.
Managed to read 1/3 of the book. If I didn't warm up to it and I don't feel for the characters by this point I'm hardly going to like it . What's the point in reading further? :( DNF

It is a sdecent story, and although it is fairly predictable, it is fun to read. I hope this is not the last in the series as there are a couple of characters I would like to see next.
