#1 Winter Trials - ★★★★
#2 Awaken - ★★★

Awaken is book 2 from the Northern Witch Series. Read my review for Winter Trials, book one in the series.

I have enjoyed reading the first book, and I was so eager to get to the second one. This is a story about a young boy Mark and his grandma, who is a witch. This is also a story about Damien, a new guy in town, in which Mark falls in love with.

The second book starts where the first book left off. Mark and

The second book of the series picks up where book one finished. This book has a darker feel to it than the first.

Mark has a hard time coping as his boyfriend is possessed by a demon that causes trouble as it gets a stronger hold on Damien. Misunderstanding causes a rift between Mark and his friends, Harry and Sarah. On top of which, the other students and residents are scared of him, as they think he's using dark magic.

All in all an exciting read that doesn't let up until the last page - which l

The first book in this series was great, a coming of age book, where being gay in a small community made you different but Mark had always been accepted by his school friends. However, now in this second book Mark is not only gay but his boyfriend is being claimed by a demon and fellow students are ostracising Mark because they think he is using dark magic and that all the horrible things happening in the neighbourhood are caused by him. Mark is doing everything in his power to save Damian from ...more

This book was a long time coming after the first Northern Witches book, Winter Trials, but it was worth the wait. Mark, his friends, and his boyfriend face new trials and trouble from the demon who possessed Damian at the end of the first book. As the demon becomes more powerful, he is more able to influence Damian and cause trouble. Will Marc, his Nana, and the other witches be able to vanquish the demon and free Damian? We'll have to wait and see, as the story doesn't end with this book. I lov ...more

Oh well, what can I say I still think Nanna is Awesome. WOW what a great read I’ve been waiting for this second book in the series for some time (in the meantime I re-read the authors Witch Hunter Series all brilliant).

This is the second book in the series, and I must stress it is a proper series in every sense of the word so if you have not read book 1 you really and I mean REALLY need to read it, to get the back story. These are not standalone books.

I don't know that I'm going to continue this series. I read the first book because I got it for free from an ARC program, and it was okay (albeit a cliffhanger), but with this book to be honest I can't remember the last time I disliked the characters from a book so much. All the characters. I don't think I liked or even felt neutral towards even one. They all had enough wrong with them and not enough right with them that I felt very negative towards them. Maybe they were casually prejudiced, may ...more

Great read, Mark is learning magic from his grandma. Marks boyfriend Damian is possessed by a demon. Mark and the coven are trying to help remove the demon that is taking a ride in Damian’s body. Harry, Marks best friend have had a falling out, as Harry states Mark has been selfish and everything is about him. I must say this was a great read however it ends with a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to read the next addition.

And it has only just begun, the story of Damien and Mark.

A true love match it seems, but demon possesed Damien is trying to stay away from those he cares about to keep them save - works about as well as accepting the demon that took his parents in order to protect the coven.

prejudice of a different kind against Mark as a witch rears its head, and so does protective Nanna.

Can Mark stay ahead of the trouble, and the mistakes they all make trying to fight it?

Fighting demons and evil does not sound

Great fantasy book with witches. Mark has everything but there’s definitely trouble brewing. Fast paced, intriguing.

Allow a LONG full day for this eldritch tale of young gay love, although I suggest reading the earlier book, Winter Trials, first. I read an ARC and this voluntary review is my own opinion.
