Let me start by saying I don't enjoy stories of romance. Don't judge me either!
Some people might describe this book as a romance. It's not. What 'Awakening' is, is a strong and exciting character-driven story that works on several levels. It meant that I enjoyed this book. A lot. So there's a lesson here about not making preconceived judgements I suppose.

Awakening is the stunning debut of up-and-coming author PS Livingstone and it's a roller coaster ride of a story.

It's an epic urban fantasy novel with some romantic elements, but there's so much more to this book. The characters are so well written and realistic that they almost jump out from the pages. The snappy dialogue and interactions between Aubrey and Cathal are entertaining and full of emotional depth, while the author hurls exciting plot twists and curveballs that drive the action along

Fantasy meets romance in this story of love, destiny and magic.

Aubrey is a young woman settling into a new life in London, trying to put the past behind her. But she is still haunted by mysterious events in her childhood, ones which seem to link her to magic and the supernatural, no matter how hard she tries to forget. Attempting to help a young woman, she is thrown back into the world of the Fae, and she must contend with strange magical beings, demons, and a shadowy figure from her past.

A sexy, twisty contemporary fantasy story with a dark background. I particularly enjoyed the characterisation and several of the characters inhabited my thoughts for days afterwards. I very much look forward to reading more of this series.
