May 19, 2019 rated it it was amazing  ·  (Review from the author)  ·  review of another edition
Again, for obvious reasons, I've read this book. ;)

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

I really enjoyed reading this book - it was not what I expected at all and maybe if I had any inkling of the story I might not have read it- but I am quite delighted I did.

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

I loved this excellent book so much.

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

Definitely loved this book. It takes you on a few twists and turns. All you want to do is see if they make it in time and how things will end up. Pretty sneaky ending though.

Five strangers have been pulled together by some unforeseen force and have just discovered who and what they are. The five strangers have just been told that they are angels and that they have a mission to complete or the world as they know it will be no more.

The five angels each have their own special powers and must figure out what they are and how to use them before the darkness comes. The five angels must learn to work together if they are to save the world. They must each put aside their at

I will start this off by saying that this book was extremely interesting to read and I was engaged throughout it, but I was NOT expecting the story I read with the blurb that was provided. After reading the book and re-reading the blurb I can SEE how it does fit, but it was a bit misleading to me and give the book a 4 outta 5.

Key Takeaways from the Book:
-Religion is mentioned a lot in here and has a pretty profound meaning. So, if you are a bit touchy on your religious beliefs and Christianity-
This was a very entertaining and fast paced read. It’s not my typical book I would pick, but I really enjoyed the way the author took me on a ride and got me to really invest in her characters. Now I just want to say that ending was something else and I want to know more!

Awakening is a standalone story in the 8th Dimension series.

Final Rating: 4 Stars

An Awesome Tale
“Awakening” is an amazing read that is well-written with twists, turns, and adventure in the world of angels. This is a good read.

I requested a free review copy of this book through StoryOrigin and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I love Carissa Andrews Pemdomus Series, it is brilliant, and the Oracle is also very good with wonderful characters. The first third of this book has a great mix of characters and interesting story line, I love books written about angels, and then I hit a road bump. I must admit I had mixed feelings about this book at first. All the players are relatively lined up and the story underway then Christianity was brought to the story as being a missing piece to the puzzle. Yes my fears went up and I ...more

WAY out there

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 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.

Great book, follows Final Five

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

Amazing Read!

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.
