3.5/5 stars

Awakenings, despite its flaws, is a surprisingly absorbing adventure. The writing is solid and fluid. The book itself has a raw quality to it that will appeal to many readers. Though Awakenings does read more like a prologue to a series, the series itself has huge potential to be a multi-dimensional epic fantasy. Awakenings crosses multiple genres from noir to contemporary and even has hints of traditional fantasy. Lazellari has great potential as a fantasy writer. The idea is fresh and new and even though the ending left me wanting and some of the characters were a bit two dimensional, I will anxiously read the other books in this series to see where Lazellari can take me next.
