Ancient Awakenings is like one of those old 1950’s horror movies. Scary and filled with familiar characters which give it a comfortable, nostalgic feeling while the tension and fear increases from page-to-page. Even the setting, Rhodes End--a small New England town where everyone knows everyone’s business and strangers have to live there generations before being accepted—is right out of an old black-and-white movie. This isn’t to say the story is cliché-ridden or formulaic. There are plenty of t ...more

This book is a great start to an interesting series. I got this book after struggling through three chapters of Ancient Blood, which is book two. Go ahead and buy both Ancient Awakening and Ancient Blood, because you won't want to read just one book.

Mel's the first and only female police officer in this little picturesque town, and the chief isn't happy about it at all. When strange things start happening, she has to do her job without stepping on anyone's toes. Steve is working day and night to

I received this book from the author for an honest review. Ancient Awakening is set in a small town and the author does a marvelous job letting the reader get to know the quirky, interesting secondary characters (that I love!- especially Sammy) as the story progresses- promising a return of several in the next Rhodes End novel. Mel and Steve present as a couple you could easily already know, struggling with building a budding relationship despite dealing with the challenges of their jobs...and t ...more

I’m Barbara Edwards and a native New Englander. I’m a graduate of the University of Hartford with a Master’s degree in Public Administration. I write poetry for myself and novels when I need to tell a longer tale. I’m fascinated by the past so naturally turned to writing historical romance.
