Awakening: Rise as the Fall Unfolds
Morgan’s been a psychic, tasked with awakening angels in her dimension for the past twenty years. Finding this purpose and calling was a blessing… and a curse. She never expected it would lead her ...more
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?
But more than that, what if angels weren't all that different from you or I?
The end is near. Fix it or the world is gone. No pressure.
With their world literally falling apart, five total strangers are torn away to solve the crisis before it is too late. But they have no clue what is wrong. And they are hunted. By darkness itself. Fortunately, each of the five has a unique talent. They must depend on each other. Must trust one another. No easy task.
Carissa Andrews leads us on a thought-provoking, spiritual journey with the fate of mankind hanging in the balance. Fail...more
Well, this is not an easy book to review. I couldn’t decide whether to give it 3, 3.5 or 4 stars but ultimately decided on 4 stars. I’m also not sure if this is a Christian story or not. My fear is that some Christians may become upset with the way the ending is handled. I am Christian but not practicing and was offended by how the whole story was handled. I have read lots of books about Angels and Demons. Unfortunately, this one really upset me.
The story starts out well. A young c ...more
I read this book before realising that it was number three in a series. Not that it mattered to me at the time, but I will be reading the others at some point anyway.
Personally, I think that the author made a huge mistake making public what the simple question was that started her off with 'Awakening'. Luckily, I didn't see it until after I'd finished. When I came to this particular revelation in the book, I audibly gasped. It's a fantastic idea and Ms Andrews ...more

Awakening is a standalone story in the 8th Dimension series.
Final Rating: 4 Stars
I never thought this would be so good, so mind- blowing, the concepts totally spectacular! I will recommend this book to anyone, anywhere at any time. As a psychic and a student of theology, the what-ifs of this story would .akeva movie I'd wait in line to see. Thank you, authoress!!!
I've read the other 2 previous books in this "series" if you can even call it that. Even read in order this is entirely disjointed. And they don't become clearer the further you read. So, if you're like me and try to hang in there and hope the storyline will develop and all will be clear, let me save you some time..it doesn't become clear. And the storyline is so far out there I can't even describe it as interesting much less thought provoking. I'm done trying.
This book is fantastic! I love the way it's paced. The book picks up pretty close to where Final Five leaves off. You could probably read it without having read Final Five, but I don't think it will make near as much sense. Intense, seriously crazy plot twists and turns you won't see coming,which is great. Last chapter is by far and away the best. Read Love is a Merciless God already,and it's the follow up to this, but I feel like I need to go back and read it again ...more
This is an amazing read that is very well written with twists, turns, and adventure in the world of angels. While it has religious overtones, it is not a preachy religious book in any way. In fact, I liked the way the author handled the different religions and the way the book ended.
