I thought I was out for a night of fun with the love of my life, Ebbin.
My best friend Blue had other plans. She added a little something
extra in our drinks. Something meant for Ebbin and I. A lust spell.
We ended up taking three men home that night.
Now eight weeks later, we find out we’re pregnant.
We’re ecstatic, that is until we run into the three men we thought, were

Very interesting worldbuilding. I enjoyed the mix of supernatural and myth. Hollows Awakening had a nice fast pace, and the characters had some great banter. A few too many coincidences, so there could have been more complexity. There are some irritating typos and grammar that may annoy grammar nerds, a proofread would be helpful, but I liked the storyline, so I skipped over them.

Oh Trina, I have such a lady boner for you. This is an amazing story. It's also very unique. So little unknown fact about me - I'm not a fan of pregger books. Because, well. Meh, I don't have kids so I can't relate. BUT, and this is a huge but, like baby got back BUT...

I Loved Mira. Yes, she finds out she's preggers on the first page (no, that's not a spoiler - read the blurb, with love) but the preggers doesn't take the center stage. I kinda forgot she was preggers for portions of the book. Ye
I love Valkyrie books, who does not love a strong female who doesn’t take crap and kicks butt, said no one ever! I loved this book!!! It is enchanting to learn of the different paranormal groups introduced. The opening of this book hooks the reader and keeps them struggling at midnight to stay up and finish the rest! The storyline is developed, there is a bit of the unknown, but it adds to the base of the story it does not deter from it.

The main heroine of this tell is a “Hollow” or a human nam

Must read!

In The Hollows Awakening we're immediately thrown into the story of Mira finding out about her pregnancy after an evening of some magic enhanced fun with her boyfriend/love of her life and 3 other males. From here on out we learn about the others, hollows and the general mood is set.

Throughout this book we learn bits and pieces of the different characters and the world as it is (the Conclave seems sketchy AF).

The main goal? Keeping everyone safe and find out more about Mira's heritage

LOVED IT!! Trina Bates knocked it out of the park with her very first book. The story line is unique, just like the characters. It is very well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. I hated putting it down because I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next!! Unfortunately I must eat and go to work! Damn you work!

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read an exciting, unique, fun, emotional, loving, funny, tear at your heart strings book!

Great job!

Good story

To be honest, I was on the fence about reading this because the description mentions pregnancy and I usually don't like to read a book with pregnancy in it but I listened to some friends and decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did! This is a good story of love, friendship, and self discovery. The pregnancy doesn't take away from the story or romance. It was very easy to read and I'm very glad I chose to read it. I would definately recommend this book to others to read.

Witty, sassy and fun!

This story is so captivating. The author took the time to really show you amazing character development and set up a creative world full of mythology and wonder. I don't do spoilery reviews because I feel that it takes the magic, intrigue and mystery away. What I will say is that is a must read and I am Jonesing for book two!!

Wow just wow. I don't even know where too start as I am blown away by this book. Trina did such a wonderful job. As soon as I got through the first chapter I was completely hooked. I definitely loved the humor and the suspense of what is going too happen. I definitely didn't want too put it down. I was sad when it ended too. Great job Trina.

Ooooh, I really enjoyed this book. The only reason I put it down was dropping my reader on my face when I fell asleep.

It was a fast paced delightfull whirlwind/rollercoaster of emotions. I so getting book two to follow the adventure.

I highly recommend you check out this delicious morsel. You won't be disappointed.

This book has great bones and has some great potential but the execution wasn’t the greatest. It was wordy and had a lot of day to day task descriptions that didn’t push the story forward.

Interesting start of a series!!

This book had me hooked from the beginning! I’m excited to Mira and her men’s relationship grow! On to book two!!

Decent read

I liked it. The characters were diverse enough to be interesting while still meshing together and there were plenty of “fun” times while not detracting from the story.

Absolutely Loved The Hollows Awakening!

I’m sorry but I am not going to give you any spoilers because I do not want to ruin all the surprises that’s hidden inside this story!
So this is all I am going to say and that is I really don’t have the right words to describe this book except to say OMG I freaking loved it, it was absolutely amazing!!
I was completely hooked before I had even finished the first page and stayed hooked until I got to the end of the book!
Trina Bates has created an awesome mast
