Lexi’s no ordinary teenager. She was born with the ability to read minds and sense danger. But on her seventeenth birthday, she realized how different she was after transforming, literally that is. Now she’s developing powers stronger than a superhero. But she’s no superhero.

Far from it.

She has no control over her abilities and causes accidents every time she’s nervous o

Wow! I couldn't put the book down. I read it in one sitting. I thought Untamed Powers was great, but this version was so much better.

At first I was hesitant to buy the book since I already read Untamed Powers and Awakening was the first part of the book, but I'm so glad I did. Several back story questions I had were answered. The love story between the two lead characters had been spiced up, considerably (sigh!) and the ending had been changed from Untamed Powers as well.

If you like a fast pace,

Okay so, this was out back in March, and before you all go crazy thinking I have the worlds biggest TBR (I mean, mine is pretty hefty but I prioritise review books) I've been having Kindle issues. My Kindle is kind of old, and for months now it's not been working, and I have no other way to read Kindle books because I kinda prefer, like actual books, you know, so I was pretty screwed. The NetGalley piled up and now it's June, and I'm about to start working my way through all of my NetGalley book ...more

Excellent YA Dark Fantasy

The Zeuorian Awakening is an excellent young adult dark fantasy tale.

Engrossing, entertaining and electric the story really draws the reader in and keeps a hold until the very end.

Great, Great YA Fantasy Read!!!

n I received this book from NetGally for free in lieu of an honest review. I'm a huge fan of mysteries, thrillers and fantasies. This book combined all three. I was hooked from the moment Lexi discovered others were after her. I couldn't put the book down until I reached the end. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

The book did have a minor romantic plot, but not a big one. I had hoped to have learned more about her romantic past with her Watcher. But after I visited the book websit

I'm a huge fan of action or suspense books with tough female main characters. I happened across this book on paperbackswap.com and decided to give it a try. I don't generally read YA, but the cover intrigued me.

I'm glad I read it. Once I got past the beginning, I couldn't put the book down. I stayed up all night to find out who her watcher was and why others were after her.

I really liked Lexi. She isn't your typical teen character. She is gifted with special abilities, determined to figure out w

A friend recommended this book to me. She told me don't pay attention to the bad reviews. It's a great book. Truth is, I'm not a big fan of fantasy so I was a little hesitant at first, but I really enjoy thrillers so I gave it a try. I have to say, I totally agree with her. This book is great.

I couldn't put it down from the point Lexi discovered someone broke into her house until the end. I did wish there was a little more information about Zeuorians and the Community, but I get a feeling that w

Firstly I want to thank the lovely author and NetGalley for approving me to read and review this title.

This will be my first time ready anything by Cindy Zablockis but I no I shall be hooked to read more.

This is the story of Lexi who is a very gifted teen, She has one friend, Angie, who is also the only other person who knows about her abilities apart from her Aunt, whom she lives with.

Lexi is attractive and popular, even though she doesn't want to be.

But she wasn't perfect, it's one unfortunate

Amazing, Entertaining YA Dark Fantasy
This is a great read. Definitely hard to put down once you get started. This is the story of Lexi who is a very gifted teen. You see she can read minds! If that was her only problem maybe she could handle it. Unfortunately Lexi starts changing, into what she's unsure. The only people who can explain her situation, her parents died in a car crash.

I really really enjoyed this book. From the first page to the last, I was involved in the story. It wasn't the best story I had ever read, but I really enjoyed the plot, character development and action. I love that I'm still not certain she is with the right guy. I'm also wondering what role the fathers of the respective male leads will play and how her best friend might figure into the storyline in any sequels.

Overall, the book was exciting enough to catch my attention from the beginning and i

I got this book through netgalley!
So in the beginning it was a little hard to connect with Lexi. But as I keep reading I couldn't put the book down!
Not giving too much away Lexi is a powerful being. She is starting to develop more abilities while trying to learn how to control them, all the while trying to figure out which guy she can trust! Could it be Tyler? Dillon? Everett?
The only other people who know about her abilities are her aunt and best friend and the people who are hunting her!

3.5 stars. It was a sweet book, though the guys fighting over her was getting a bit much. After getting to the end, I felt the story line could have been more developed (not focusing on boys fighting over the attention of one girl). There was so much the author could have done with this book but no it focused on a love 'square' not even a triangle!



Due to the ending the second book is promising.

The only difference between a superhero and villain was the path they chose.

I really enjoyed this book actually.. I found Lexi to be a strong character who doesn't back down. Lexi can move things with her mind (telekenises) and she comes across a group of others that can also do things with their minds and they plan to work together to beat the bad guys.

This was full of love, mystery, frustration and fun.

Sometimes learning the truth is worth risking everything - even your life.

This was an okay story, though I thought it was a bit much how every guy was interested in Lexi...even considering her "transformation". Not sure if I'll continue with the series.

Thank you to CZ Publishing, LLC publishing for giving me a copy of this book for an honest review

Okay. As an overall story I wasn't a big fan.

For some reason, when i saw the word Zeuorian and a girl standing with lightning near her, my brain screamed...ZEUS! MYTHOLOGY! LIGHTING! ...i was wrong, very,very, very...wrong.

But before i really get into that, let's go into the plot.
Lexi has strange and wonderous abilities.
But those abilities are the reason why she constantly looks over her shoulder.

Surprised that I even finished this one. Harsh to say but this is booooring. Too bad tho, the premise sounded nice

-----------------

Disappointing. As much as I wanted to like this book and how I think its pretty, I am not so impressed with how the story is in general.

The main reason why I wanted to read it was because it reminded me of aliens in a way that sounds like JLA, and because of that gorgeous cover. Here I am, imagining that it would be beautiful and very sci-fi, but it lacked a lot of t

The Zeuorian Awakening is a fast paced novel- it also has quite a bit going on so it made it hard to put the book down. Her special abilities made Lexi a more interesting character to watch, and I love it when the best friend is aware of the special powers because it makes them feel closer in my opinion.

There were so many boys interested in Lexi it was a little crazy; it obviously had a bit to do with her transformation...as far as I could tell they hadn't been all over her before the book bega

I tried really hard to enjoy this book, but I really couldn’t get into it.

I thought the storyline was hard to follow. It was never obvious when the main character was remembering events from the past or talking about actions/events in the present.

I originally loved the cover art and thought this book would have some connection to Greek Mythology, but I was wrong. There was a random alien connection that seemed unusual.

The “love triangle” was barely a love triangle and I didn’t feel any emotional

I received my copy free from the publisher through Netgalley.

An okay read, nothing new or original here, and a bit lackluster writing -- but I think this book would go over well for the intended audience of early teen readers.

A fairly entertaining novel, The Zeuorian Awakening reminds me slightly of I Am Number Four with a slightly less engrossing storyline and sometimes confusing (but again, a good read :)).

Lexi is already comfortable in knowing she can read other people's thoughts (as is her best friend) - the book opens up with Lexi discovering she has new abilities (glossing over the telepathic ones). There are a lot of questions to be answered throughout the book, especially when there are three potential suito

I got this book through Story Cartel for an honest review.

Honestly, I really wanted to like the book. I love sci-fi, and YA, and most of the time a mix of the two is neat. However, while the main character’s abilities, and her discovering of her past was a nice storyline, the ‘romance’ storyline was a bit disheartening.

Zeuroian Awakening is the story of Lexi Greene, a seventeen year old girl that lost her parents and now lives with her aunt Irene in Brookings, Oregon. She has one friend, Angie T

I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.


Honestly, I don’t think I could find anything enjoyable in this book at all, which is a very very rare thing to happen to me. Usually, I can find at least a couple of things that were nice or entertaining in books I read, even when I don’t enjoy them so much, but with this one everything was just completely lackluster.

Lexi has special powers she can read minds and get a kind off warning when she’s in danger. On her seventeenth B-day she transform and her powers get stronger and she develops new ones. Only she doesn't know how to control them. Every time she gets upset she attracts storm, lighting or other natural disasters. It’s dangerous and she is afraid someone will get hurt.

Someone is talking to her in her head, but she doesn't know who. Her aunt is keeping secrets and she is not who she thought she is. B

Lexi has always had premonitions but she is scared by way her powers have been growing lately as she knows that people are out to kill her. When she starts being stalked, she also finds 'romance' as two boys from school are fighting over her.

This could have been a very good book, the idea was fascinating but the execution was poor. It was so full of angsty melodrama that I put the book down on several occasions. The romances were forced and I couldn't tell you anything about the two boys, in fac

The Zeuorian Awakening had a lot of issues. First, like a lot of self-published books, there was a lack of editing. Missing words, incorrect tense usage, and verbosity permeated. It tried to be a kinda sci-fi, maybe paranormal romance, sorta mystery, but it doesn’t seem to rock any of those genres.

And the angst, OMG it was hard. I considered quitting this story several times due to too much melodrama. The protagonist was unlikeable and had no agency. Everything just happened to her. She was the

SIGH** I really wanted to like this book. I like sci-fi, especially when they have a strong female character with a super cool power (telekinesis), but I found it boring. I’d put it down then pick it up later but it was a struggle to finish. It’s not that it’s a YA novel, I enjoy many of them it’s a combination of things which included the romance storyline. I am so tired of instant romance and in the other extreme “I like them, but they could never like me, but they are secretly pining for them ...more
