What I Loved:

I absolutely loved the character of Anabelle. She was sweet, cute, and simultaneously powerful and vulnerable. While I generally do enjoy a good demon story, this one was especially delightful. At first the demons kind of felt wimpy and too-easily defeated, but by the middle of the story it's clear that's only because the main character, Russel, is just a kick-ass Guardian. Also, Lynn Rush does a wonderful job with teasing and leading the reader on with mysterious events and sentences.

What I Didn't Like:

Not too much to complain about here.

My Overall Review:

(5 of 5 Stars) Delightful

I really enjoyed reading Awaited. It was a fairly easy and quick read, with the action starting in the first few pages and continuing until the last sentence. I really enjoyed how Lynn pointed to an unknown, kept bringing the answer within grasp, and then left readers hanging. While I enjoyed Russel's story, the star of the show is definitely Annabelle. Even before I ever saw her on the page, she was talked about so radiantly that I already knew I'd like her. When she was introduced, she was so incredibly vulnerable, and that was absolutely endearing. If you enjoy stories of angels and demons, this is definitely a book that I'd advise you to pick up.

Shayna Gier Thanks! I look forward to it. I was just going through my big pile of swag and goodies from the RT Bookfair and I just about fell over when I realized I met/talked with you and got your signature and didn't realize it! haha. To be fair I'm rather face-blind but that was a super-cool after-the-fact moment
