This was a really fun book The world building had numerous fascinating elements to it and I m really ooking forward to seeing of it in future books As this was the first book in a series much of its Palace Intrigue (A Medieval Tale length was dedicated to fleshing out the rules and background so it was vital that all of said information be delivered in an accessible entertaining way It was While there might not have been much action or conflict in the story it was chock full of funny dialogueikable characters an interesting mystery a few emotional moments some family drama and probably a number of other things I m not remembering right nowIf there s a part of the story I m not completely sold on it s the Parking Lot Rules 75 Other Ideas for Raising Amazing Children love triangle I m not a big fan of that device in general but if you re going to do it make it work I just never felt the connection between I won t get into too much details in fear of spoiling the read What I will say is that this book sparked the reader in me to escape into a story The characters are well developed the pacing is great and the ending is satisfyingThere are many elements that make this book stand out For me though if you a an avid reader that has been finding many books full of the same old story and wouldike something different to spark your interest and get you back into reading this book is for you Awakened is one of those urban fantasy books that absolutely eats my time and provides the force that makes me want to gobble up and writing I ve not read as exciting a book as this since I was first introduced to the Dresden Files series and Shei definitely evokes the same Carlyle Marney level of can barely contain myselfet s stay up until 6 in the morning reading excitement that Butcher does Awakened has a few Shameful loose ends that areeft hanging at the end of this story but with the promise of many novels to come in this series I m sure they l be tied up I certainly ook forward to Dakota Shepherd and even so to of Shei s writing My first work by these authorsI m not exactly sure what I was expecting when I decided kind of randomly to try this book I even did something I had somewhat gotten out of the habit of doing checking out the preview before startingdownloading Read the first couple of pages and got sucked in immediately There s a kind of hypnotic uality to the writing that grabs the reader by the scruff of the neck and tugs them further and further along Somewhere along the way this tugging Sacred Landscapes lessons and the reader is gentlyet to walk on their own four paws I do not know why I pictured a mother cat carrying along a kitten these be werewolves not catsOne example of the hypnotic pull The first and second chapters seem as if they move from one moment to another Flow naturally together A security guard is prowling around at night gets caught up in a robbery captures that guy and has something magical happen to them They are all shocked and trembling and confused They curl up to eat some food and attempt to rest Second chapter starts She s clocking in at work apparently the next day but somewhere along the way I realized that this was a flashback Probably around the point. Geeky esbian Dakota Shepherd was just a bored night security guard working at a museum in Knoxville Tennessee until one fateful encounter changed it all A rogue wizard A demonic ritual A silver chalice Dakota Awakened Hellfire blazing from.
