Awakening is the 3rd book in the Legion series by A.D. Starrling. The Legion series is a spin-off from the Seventeen series.

A must read fr ...more

OMG this book doesn't disappoint. Sebastian is a great addition to the team! He doesn't hold anything back. The other team members don't like it too much, but considering the age differences, it's not surprising. And Otis, who knew, he certainly didn't (I'm not spoiling it)! Wow, another great one from A.D. in this series. The action is non-stop and the budding romance with two of the team members was a surprise. I cannot wait to see where that goes! Definitely recommend this book!

An excellent book in the continuing Legion series! These books keep getting better and better. Enter Sebastian, who is the brother of Smokey and Callie. Things are getting really interesting between new gates, guardians, add in the romance and humor there is never a dull moment! Learn about rifts, who certain demons are and the past of Drake and Artemus! The biggest surprise to the plot comes in the form of Otis! Such an unusual young man trying to decipher his mother’s books and surprise!

An amazing book that you don’t want to miss. A perfect fantasy story for everyone. Otis tried to discover the truth behind his Mother’s death and stay in a physiatric hospital. Loved the characters and the plot.

The Legion series has become one of my favorites. When I received the emailed Awakening was going live in January; I kept checking for the advance copy to read and review. Awakening does not disappoint; the women and men are still tough and kick butt with a sarcastic sense of humor. In this book we are introduced to Sebastian and get to know Otis, Artemus’ Assistant, better. Romances are starting to form between roommates; one is definite before the end of book and the other couple are still in ...more

This is book three in the Legion series. I had not read the other books so becoming acquainted with all the characters, and there are a lot, took some time. This book is difficult as a stand alone and since I hadn’t read the others I felt I was missing out on a lot of back story. I like that all these characters had found each other and formed a kind of family. I know they are fighting against Ba’al but I wasn’t clear about what Ba’al’s goals were. Sebastian, whose family was killed by a monster ...more

Having not read either of the previous books in this series, I was hesitant to start with book 3. However, I was pleasantly surprised - the characters and universe were introduced in quick fashion without heavy exposition, and the novel progressed quickly from there. The action was tight, the characters felt like individuals, and the mix of mythology, religion and paranormal SFF seemed to work just right, leaving a Jim Butcher meets Rick Riordan taste in my mouth. You don't need much background ...more

Enjoyable book. I have read all the books in the prior series and in this one. I really enjoy the dynamics between all the characters, and that despite them never having known each other, they have become a big, quirky., annoying family. The only aspect of this series that I don't like is that the reader really still doesn't know the reasons behimd any of the plot, despite it being two books in. Why the characters were awakened, why demons are on the planet, what is the prophecy? It's good to gi ...more

A very well written, fun read. I enjoyed reading this book. It combines mythological creatures, super soldiers, immortals, angels, demons, and the weapons they wield.
This is book three in the Legion series, and the first one that I have read, so at first, I was a little lost, but quickly caught on. It would have helped if there had been an index of some sort in the beginning for new readers, but you can do without it.
I enjoy fantasy and mythology, and look forward to reading more of A.D. Starrl

Awakening (Legion #3), my 20th read from author AD Starrling who again expands her literary world with this book. With each book she writes she further expands the work already created. The third book of her new, related series. I look forward to the next book in the series. Extremely well written, the characters, well developed. I’m a character reader, I get into the characters. Who and what they are. Why they do the things they do. The things that make a reader get invested into the characters ...more

I thought the book started out a little slow but was pleasantly surprised when all of a sudden it sped up to mach speed. This was the AD Starrling I was used to! From that point onward it was non stop action and mayhem.
Each book in this series adds a new character or two to the team. I can't wait for the next volume.
Five stars all the way. I was sent an advanced copy to read and was asked for my opinion.

Someone ate the invite and Artemus and the gang show up to a black tie affair, under dressed. Nothing that unusual for this gang or that they would meet a professor that would kidnap Artemus' employee after meeting the newest member of the group. There's lots of action, suspense and humour all wrapped up in a fast paced plot that just draws you into the story. I found myself reading longer then I actually had the time for. Looking forward to book four. ...more

This third book in the series captures your attention from the very first page and holds it until the very end. Love the new characters, and the way that the existing characters continue to evolve. As always, even when things are at there worst, the characters retain that spark of humour that makes the books so much fun to read. This book can’t be read as a stand-alone, it is part of the Legion series. I would also recommend reading the Seventeen series as it gives you an insight into the origin ...more

I think the 3rd book in this series is the best so far. I absolutely loved the 17 series, and there were characters and references to that series brought into play. Such a talented author. A great read, I highly recommend it.

Divinely Delectable

I Absolutely LOVE these characters, the fight scenes are amazing, their humour hilarious and the bond of this demon slaying crew is brilliant. Awakening takes us on another entertaining and remarkable journey. Sebastian has joined the motley crew of Artemus, Drake, Callie, Haruki, Serena, Nate and of course our ever adorable rabbit Smokey, aka the hell hound.
Otis Boone is more than meets the eye too. Can’t say to much without spoilers so I’m just going to say that I LOVE IT! V
