Holy shit balls!! I don't think this review is going to do this amazing work justice but here goes!

I've only read about 20 paranormal books and I have to say they are not usually the criteria I read but this was absolutely amazing!! This novel had me teetering on the edge of my seat throughout, I loved that I could relate and connect with the characters and their personalities, they literally jumped out the pages at me. Thi

Awaken is Book #1 in a brand new mature Y/NA paranormal romance series, by Grace White. The series is called the Lilituria Prophecy, and it is a really great start to the series. This is a hard review for me to write spoiler free, so I am going to do a mini review and then share an excerpt with you. I think Awaken is a good start to what looks to be a really interesting series. I think lovers of Paranorm

### 5 Hashtags ###

An really addictive paranormal read, I absolutely loved it ! I'm amazed it's this authors debut novel.

Daiya and her sisters have just moved towns once again. At Daiya's new school she meets Kai and the connection between them is instant and intense. Does this mean that Daiya's half demon side now awakened ? Daiya constantly struggles with feeling different is she different ? can she control her desire ?

Wow! I am amazed by just how much I really loved this book.

3 girls half demon, half human, the fate of their kind lies in one of their hands. This book is filled with non stop action, passion, romance, and something that no other book has. The author has created such a great story; so great that you wish the book hadn't ended.

Can I bask in the glory of how different, and unique this book is? Can I just breath and realize that I just read one heck of a story that will forever follow me around a

This book was exactly what I needed right now. I like raced through it because I kept wanting to hear what would happen next. I loved the action, especially at the house party!!!!!, and the characters and the fact that even though I might have been able to guess some of the surprises, I was excited about it still, every time.

Okay so I've had a very hard time settling on a rating for this book. For the first two thirds of the book I could probably rate it a high four or maybe even a five. But the last third I rate a one so I ended up in the middle with a three star.

This is not a complete book. It is a beginning and a middle... And middle. Que next book. I am not a fan of books like those. I enjoy series' don't get me wrong but wrap up the main story line and then bring something further to the table. Even just think

Awaken is a YA / NA paranormal romance and is the debut novel as well as Book 1 in the Lilituria Prophecy Series’ by Grace White. I absolutely loved how this story brought out all the feels and memories of falling in love for the first time.

I wont go into detail of the story as the blurb say's it all perfectly. I don't usually read YA/NA books, however I do love a good paranormal romance. This uniquely story is amazing for debut novel. The chemistry between Daiya and Kai is beautifully intense, the story keeps your attention from the first page to the last, I had to slow my reading down to absorb all the details, the only problem now is t

Wow! I love this book so much. When I decided to read and review this book, I didn’t expect a lot. I was looking for paranormal, to feed my need for paranormal romance and got so much more. I felt like I was on an adrenaline high from the non stop excitement. The story started out strong and ended strong.

As a Lilituria, Daiya awakened the demon inside of her at eighteen, the story was fresh and interesting.

This story started a little slow for me, but it did great picking up the pace as the story developed.

You meet Daiya and her sisters that have a great big secret. A curse that you get to discover at the same time as the characters, wich makes the story telling interesting. It brings you into a modern tale of mystery mixed with devils, spells and love, but is it really love??

This was a nice story that i really enjoyed reading. As the book goes, the sto

We follow Daiya and her sisters, Devlin and Demi. Daiya is the youngest and the last one in the family to awaken. Devlin is the crazy, wild sister while Demi is the one that had to grow up fast when their mother died to take care of them. Daiya is scared about awakening, and letting her demon lose.

Awaken is a well written book by Grace. She has developed an interesting and unique plot. I don't recall many books covering this topic which I find very refreshing! The pace of the book is perfect, never dragging out nor does it ever feel like the author is trying to rush you through the story.

Probably my biggest issue is that it has a cliff hanger and I have no idea when the next one comes out for me to find out what will happen next to Daiya. Speaking of which, Daiya is a very likable charact

WOW!!! It’s been a long time since I was up till 5am reading!

But I doubt I could have put this book down if I’d tried.

I’ve read PNR books that have dealt with this particular brand of supernatural being before. But they’ve always felt sad and slightly uncomfortable.

This book shows a brand new twist on the idea and I loved the fresh and unique way this story was handled.

This book seriously blew my socks off. I started it, and within one paragraph I was hooked. The chemistry between the main characters Kai and Daiya was so tangible I felt like it was actually happening and I could feel it.

Now I'm a sucker for paranormal on the best day, but I truly believe that even if paranormal wasn't your favourite genre you would be able to pick this book up and enjoy it, just for the chemistry, pacing, suspense alone.

Paranormal reads were my first love but in recent years I've read few and far between and the ones I have read have all gone down the normal vampire/ werewolf route which has become tired, so it takes a brave and talented author to move away from that especially for a debut author but I'm so glad Grace White did because what she created was a world I became completely immersed in and thirsted for more.

Really good debut novel! Mysterious, dark. Lots of hold your breath moments.

You really feel a bit bad for these three sisters who seem, essentially, good but, have been dealt a pretty bad hand in life. Learning to live with their circumstances is not easy.

But, maybe one of them was meant to change everything.

Like the characters and, the story line is engaging. Book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, setting it up nicely for book 2.

Wowzers!! This really doesn't feel like a debut novel! It's really well written, a little dark and mysterious.

The chemistry between the two main characters is electric and the relationship between the sisters is just what you'd expect.

I like that this book steps away from the usual paranormal scenarios, nothing about it is run of the mill. Great cliff hanger so hurry up with book two please!!!

Wow for a debut novel this one was brilliant. I am not a huge paranormal romance reader but this was such a refreshing change to read. The story idea was very good and plenty of detail was given about the world of Daiya and the ancient prophecy that she is a part of. A very interesting romance develops and the book held my interest throughout. I will be interested to see where the story goes in book 2
