Book Review: Awaken by Sarah M. Ross

Awaken (Patronus #1) by Sarah M. Ross
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: January 27, 2012
Publisher: Self

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 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.

Awaken is the first book in the Patronus series by Sarah M. Ross. Awaken has a different and interesting premise. It spins a new interpretation of who guardian angels might me and what limbo is and makes an intriguing little story. The term patronus kept making me think of Harry Potter. The two ideas are nothing alike. The main character, Lucy, has a lot of growing to do, and as of right now, she has no common sense. So, that was pretty frustrating, but I hope we get to see her mature in the coming books as she comes to terms with who and what she is now. The romance was super quick, but the history behind it has me curious. I'm anxious to see where the author takes this.

Awaken by Sarah M. Ross was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
The Book Trailer:
Sarah started her obsession with reading at an early age, often sneaking BabySitter Club and Nancy Drew books into math class. She would read any book she could get her hands on. Her love of reading quickly evolved into a love of writing and stories began to pour out of her.

She grew up in Pittsburgh, graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with a degree in English, and taught 8th graders to love reading as much as she does for several years. Sarah will always be a proud member of the Steelers' Nation, but couldn't take the cold and moved her frozen tush to Florida where she now lives with her family and two cats. You will find her now with her trusty Kindle in hand and toes in the sand!

Sarah's debut novel, AWAKEN, released in January, 2012. Other novels include AVENGE, ATONE, ECHO OF AN EARTH ANGEL, and INHALE EXHALE. Check out my interview with Sarah M. Ross!!
