Review: Awakening (The Watchers Trilogy #1) by Karice Bolton

Book Blurb

Alone in snowy, remote Whistler village, Ana tries to build a new life since losing her parents. With a cozy condo, a sweet-faced bulldog and an evening job to leave the days free for the slopes, life slips into a great routine. If only she could shake the guilt for not remembering anything about her parents and banish the night terrors that haunt her every dream.
On a whim, Ana goes out with Athen, a guy she’s just met in the Grizzly Pub... The only problem is that she feels like she already knows him.
Within 48 hours of meeting Athen and his family, Ana’s world implodes. She falls for Athen quickly and before she knows it, a past life begins to resurface. As thrilling as the revelations appear at first, she fights against the chilling information that Athen is from the underworld. Soon she begins to struggle as her own supernatural gifts are slowly unveiled, and she realizes that the nightmares she’s been having might be premonitions and not dreams at all.
It is up to Ana to decipher between fact and fiction before it is too late, and her new love, Athen, follows in her same fate - one that is lost between two worlds.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

This book had an interesting storyline.  It truly had potential.  However, the writing was too fluffy.  You can tell a woman wrote this story.  The dialog from the male characters wasn’t what a man would say.  It was difficult for me to explain.  The story flowed just fine.  It was the language used to write the story that cause problems for me.  I kept thinking the author must be young.  It was the voice.

The characters were supposed to be alive for years, but it didn’t come through the story.  They seemed young and almost immature.  I realize the main character was new to the life after reawakening, but she seemed young for her age.  Her thoughts were too simplistic and her ignore it and it will go away attitude annoyed me.  I hope the next book is better written.  As I said the actual story idea was cool.  So, I give it a 3 out of 5.
