Awakening

So let me start out by saying that I was completely captivated by this story. The writing style drew me in and held me tightly in it's grip right down to the last page. There were times that I thought the story was a bit odd, and it took me a little while to figure things out. But the suspense and intrigue were irresistible, and I totally loved this book. I am a major Tracey Higley fan, and I've read some great books by her, but she outdid herself on this one. I think this may be Higley's best piece of writing yet. If you're looking for romantic/suspense with just a touch of sci-fi and history, give this one a shot.

Merlin's Nightmare

                                                         My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Arthur is 18 years old, and ready to reveal his identity as the true high king of Britain, but the forces of evil are not idly standing by.  The odds are seemingly insurmountable, darkness cloaks the land, evil appears to have the upper hand. Merlin and Arthur persevere in the face of darkness, knowing that if their God is fighting with them, none can be against them. This story was great, the plot riveting, and the action heart-stopping.  I was absolutely captivated by this story, held fast in it's fantastical lair right until the end. The end brought me back to earth a little bit though. I suppose it is only my own impatience that makes it so; I was so excited to know the end of the story that I read at a feverish pace, almost non-stop, anxiously awaiting the conclusion. Only to find then that instead of the epic ending I desired, another series was yet to come. Don't get me wrong, I am excited that there is more to this story, and I will be looking forwards to continuing this journey. But the suspense is driving me crazy, and I am not the world's  most patient reader.

I received a free copy of this book through booklookbloggers in exchange for my honest review.
