did not like it
Read in April, 2012

. I had started the book and was somewhat interested in it when I realizes this was.a science-fiction novel. I continued the story of two different people--a 13-year-old boy and a policemen who both suffered from amnesia as they experienced many problems with earthly and un-earthly creatures. The book was interesting, but the ending was very unsatisfactory. It seemed like it was just the ending of part one.

Edward Lazellari Dear Ms. Primrose,
First off, thank you for reading my book. Though I seldom respond to reviews, either good or bad, I am making an exception in your case because you touched on an issue that I am sensitive to, which a few other reviewers have also brought up. I’m sorry that we didn’t put a banner on the cover of Awakenings saying “Book One,” since that would have informed people as to what they were getting into. Awakenings is, in fact, the first book of a series, the second of which, “The Lost Prince,” comes out in August of this year. This type of serial, cliff-hanger ending series has a long tradition in fantasy fiction. You may recall the first book in the Lord of the Rings trilogy leaves off in the middle of the tale, as did Roger Zelazny’s Amber series, and the current popular Game of Thrones series always ends with cliffhangers. I am glad that you at least found Awakenings interesting.
I’ve taken all these reviews under consideration and assure you I set out to write a definitive ending to book 2 that will leave readers of Awakenings much more satisfied. So if you found Awakenings interesting and just want to finish it at a good point, please read "The Lost Prince." I’m sure your local library will be carrying it, and if not, you can request they order it.
Best Regards,
Ed Lazellari
