Okay, I want to preface this with the fact that I have not finished this book. I am about 20% in, but the book is just so boring and dialogue so bad that I can't continue.

I was really hoping to get into the PLOT of the story and perhaps that would save the book for me - help me push through the rest of it. But 20% in and I have NO IDEA what the plot is. Other than her having some strange dreams.

The characters are not easy to grab hold of in this book. Everything feels so forced and juvenile that I can't take it seriously. I actually had to look the author up to see if perhaps it was a teenage author which would perhaps explain the juvenile dialogue...but alas, not the case.

The dialogue kept jarring me out of the story. Every once in a while there would be a good description of a scene or something, but then every time someone spoke, I had to laugh because it was so unbelievable.

One thing that REALLY bothered me about the main character is that she doesn't remember anything from her past, meets this guy and his family and just goes with him. Everywhere. Even though she doesn't know him. She doesn't even listen to any hesitation. What gril in her right mind would EVER do that?

And I'm 20% through and can't figure out what the storyline is going be? I'm sorry - if you're book isn't catching my attention at all by 20%, it's time to move on to something else.

There were several decent reviews about this book, so I picked it up for free on Amazon...but I'm pretty thankful I didn't pay for it at this point. Perhaps I will pick it up again while I'm waiting for another book from the library...but for now there are too many other books that WILL grab my attention and have real, flowing dialogue and a more believable story.

Review by: Rae Ryans on March 24, 2012 :
Awakening is the first part of The Watcher’s Trilogy where we meet a young woman named Ana. She works as a waitress in a resort town, but has no knowledge of her past accept a handful of newspaper clippings. Ana is frequented with disturbing nightmares that haunt her, no, torment her to no end. She knows not why these dreams occur until Athen enters into her life.

Athen, nor his family, are what they seem to be, and Ana quickly learns that she is a part of their world: the underworld. Athen has been searching for his lost soul-mate, Ana, since the demons erased her memory back in the 40′s. Our main character struggles with this new-found knowledge that shakes her very core, and sends her into the realization that her nightmares are a reality. However, she is surrounded by love, friendship and most of all a family that would die for her. But can Ana learn to be a white demon again before it’s too late? Will the Awakening process work, thus reuniting Athen and Ana again?

Once I started, I couldn’t put it down!


I’ll be honest here folks. I wasn’t entirely sure about this book when I realized it was about demons/Fallen Angels, and an intricate force of good versus evil with a race that is supposed to be damned by God. These characters – Ana, Athen and the rest – are the children of Angels that fell in love with human women. As punishment God forbid entry to heaven to the Angels that fell as well as their children, but what made the story unique was that not all the angels or children are evil.

This doesn’t stop the race of white demons from doing good deeds, and helping to guide the human race to live their lives righteously. When the black demons/Nephilim interfere or try to cause turmoil, the white demons are there to do what they can to defeat them. It is just an entirely new side for me in literature; however, it was an incredible story.

Karice Bolton didn’t leave a stone unturned or question unanswered. She backed up every part of her story’s world, crossed the T’s and dotted the I’s. Every part of the story was perfect, engaging and addicting. Once I started I couldn’t put it down, and when I was done reading I found myself purchasing the next book in the series. I’ve only braked to write up this review, and then guess what? I’ll be jumping into the next book.
