However, Awakening for me is a completely different beast of a book. I never anticipated dropping into the rabbit hole of alternative history combined with supernatural thrillers. But here we are.
This title all came about because of a simple question: What if Jesus never existed?

The end is near. Fix it or the world is gone. No pressure.

When I came to this particular revelation in the book, I audibly gasped. It's a fantastic idea and Ms Andrews ...more
