To be clear, this is not Twilight fan-fic, and it's not a Twilight rip off. However, I do think Twilight fans looking for something NEW and DIFFERENT to read would enjoy this for the genre points it does just as well. A man with secrets. A man with magical abilities. A girl with powers of her own. Two STRONG characters with chemistry that SPARKS on the pages! The best part of this story for me was the sci-fi twist! But...I don't want to post any spoilers. Just to say, this is the book you've bee ...more

I enjoyed this sci-fi book! The author did a good job weaving the characters together and unraveling the plot with perfection. Her characters were unique and well developed. There were plenty of great twists as well. Five glittery stars!

I ended up abandoning this one at 50% complete. The premise of Aliens protecting Earth caught my attention, but there was too much romance and not enough action and adventure for me. If you don't mind teenagers kissing all the time and stating over and over how much they are attracted to each other you might enjoy this one.

I won this book in a giveaway. The cover is beautiful, along with the special bookmarks i got.
I always start whit the BAD stuff....

So, we have a world where "aliens" exist (not really addressed like the classic aliens but another races with superpowers) and teenagers. That was the worst for me. They are all hysteric and in constante heat saying things like "Oh, my god he's so damn hot" all the time, and they use their own creepy language:

"Oh.My.God, J. You have no frakking idea how much I am s

Awakened was a fun book to read! I enjoyed the shifting perspectives of the two main characters (Dru and Alayna). The history of the characters and their relationships to one another was clearly developed. The fantasy science was fun and provided enough fictional detail blended with real science that it was easy to buy into the explanations--that's a key component of a well-written fantasy novel:) I really appreciated the strong female character (Alayna) and the even balance between her and Dru. ...more

Awakened by C.J. Anderson is a love story with a sy-fy twist. This story is fast moving and makes you want to know more about the relationship and secrets between Dru and Alayna. I do wish that the story focused more on the science fiction side of the novel. When I was reading, I was a tad confused on all of the aspects that were being explained. The story changes point of views from Dru and Alayna so you get to see both sides of the story. Knowing that, Awakened is a story with many twists that ...more
