Amazing read! Wow. I loved the first book Unusual Awakening, I love this book even more. We get thrown into the life of Rylee. She is trying to save her friend, Brock, from the evil with Adysin. You'll need to read the book to find out if she's able to save him, with the help of her bestie, Lyla, and a couple new friends, Pheonix and Victor. I couldn't put the book down! Filled with adventure, magic, wisps and questions. Can't wait for the next book, and S.M. knows I'll be hounding her for it to ...more

Upon learning that witches do exist, Rylee Everley has had to come to terms with a good many things in so short a time. As if that's not enough, she's still reeling from the news of her father's disappearance and the death of a good friend of hers. To make matters worse, Adysin seems to have sunk her claws into Brock as far as they can go.

Rylee knows that she'll need to break Adysin's hold on her beloved friend. Granted, she doesn't know how to do that. Yet. If the bright lights and voices are a

5 stars for me on this one….what a great YA series!

Awakening Dream picks up at the beginning of Rylee's junior year of high school. Still trying to deal with her father being gone and grasp that there is more in the world than she would have ever imagined that she seems to somehow be apart of, enter in evil and disturbed Adysin at a whole new level!! Will Rylee be able to figure everything out, keep her friends safe, and get things as close to back to normal as possible?

Much more fast paced than

Awakening Dream had a more magic in it that Unusual Awakening which I liked. Rylee and Lyla were trying to deal with the loss of Charlie, they were also wondering why Brock had changed so much since he had been going out with Adysin and Rylee still longs for the moment her missing father walks in the front door. Things tense up when Rylee works out why Brock is acting odd and how their make out sessions are all in both their heads and actually there was no kissing or hugging.

As I read Unusual Awakening, I didn't think that S.M. Knowles could dig any deeper into my emotions. Boy was I wrong! She triggered the whole range of emotions. Some characters I really loved, others I really wanted to smack.

This latest novel, Awakening Dream, continues with the story of Rylee Everley and her family and friends. She wants her best friend, Brock, away from that evil witch, Adysin. But she seems to have some weird control over him. She needs to figure it out before it is too late

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

Awakening Dream is book #2 in the Rylee Everly series. It starts at the beginning of Rylee’s junior year in high school.

Once again, Rylee’s story kept my interest. There’s more action in the second book than in book #1. It also has quite a bit more supernatural content than Unusual Awakening. There are more books in the Rylee Everley series but this one had a feel good ending which is always nice.

As with Unusual Awakening, I think young r

I received this book as part of a blog tour in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my review of the novel.

This book was really great. The pace of the plot progression was a lot quicker than the first book in the series. The characters were developed more and there was less ambiguity as to what was happening. This novel is filled with great action and suspense that really keeps you on the edge of your seat. The paranormal aspects of this book are unique and entertaining. Th

I received this book from the author and from Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock. I have to say that I loved that Awakening Dream start right where the first book left off and it didn't had me waiting. .. In this book Rylee has a better understanding of what is going on with her life and the things around her specially since she found out that witches are real and there is a half witch that is causing harm to those she care about, and with the help of a necklace and new friends she will fi ...more

5 Star

As with Unusual Awakening, Awakening Dream is highly emotional. This book is full of adventure and magic. This story will leave you second-guessing what you think you know about Rylee, Lyla, Brock, and Adysin. With more in this series yet to come, S.M. Knowles has a high standard to meet for the next books in this series.

This is an excellent YA series that everyone will fall in love with. I eagerly await the third book. I will be doing some author stalking until it comes out.

Love this Series!

S.M has done it again, the second book in Rylee's series was even better than the first. This is a fun read full of high school drama with a witch causing some extra drama. Can not wait for the next book in this series to see where this group will spend their senior year, if Rylee's dad was really on the phone, if the "mean girl" is gone for good. Highly recommend this series to paranormal book lovers of all ages.

Highly recommend reading book one first. In this book we read more about Rylee, Brock, Lyla and Adysin. I loved the development of the characters in this book. I felt sorry for Rylee. As well as growing up she was worrying about her dad, her friend Brock and her family.

This is a great read filled with mystery and magic. An ideal young adult read. Looking forward to reading more in this series.

I had received both books by Amazon trade in and couldn't wait to check out this series. I waited for book 2 before starting reading book 1 and didn't realize it was a 4 book series. I was really surprised this being a supernatural series but definitely a clean read for younger teens as well. I cannot wait for the continuation of Riley, Brock, Lyla and Garretts story continues. ...more

This book starts off a while after book #1 ended. Unlike the first book which was very slow moving, this one kept my attention until the end. I very much enjoyed it & look forward to the next one.
