Awaken by Sarah M. Ross
Summary- Lucy Donovan was supposed to have a weekend of fun in the sun, celebrating her upcoming graduation from college. In a split second, everything changed. A drunk driver ended Lucy’s mortal life. Lucy opens her eyes to a world she never imagined possible and a new destiny: as a Patronus, a guardian of spirits. Adjusting to her new role and abilities while negotiating this confusing realm will test her limits and push her further than she ever dreamed she would go. From wayward spirits who don’t want her help to soul stealing vampires, and even a stuck-up British royal, Lucy must brave them all to save one spirit she can’t bear to lose. Further complicating her confusing life is an inexplicable yet growing connection she feels to a member of her team, Max, whose mysterious behavior leaves her both confused and intrigued. Waking up dead was just the beginning of her problems. Lucy’s death is about to become the greatest adventure of her life.
My Review- The story in this book was absolutely amazing. There’s not a person that doesn’t wonder about what happens when we die. This story gives yet another perspective on that question. It mixes up some of our long held beliefs about mythical creatures also. The story of Lucy and what happens when a drunk driver takes her life is one of the best I’ve read in a long time. I laughed and even cried at several points in the book. I would absolutely recommend this book and I can not wait for the second book to find out what happens next!
