Such an amazing story! G.R. Thomas takes her readers on an exciting adventure. Her words are so beautifully descriptive that her book devours and consumes you.
Awaken is about a young girl named Sophia, who thinks her life is completely normal. She has her best friends, a possible boyfriend, and a beautiful horse. One day her life completely changes. Nothing and no one are what they seem. Sophia has no idea who she really is and what she is capable of. She soon discovers she is not from this planet and she was born for something beyond her wildest dreams.
"I morphed somehow from Sophia Woodville, average 20 year old girl with poor eyesight and a fear of spiders, to a lightning-throwing, flying being, with swirly blue eyes that could track an ant from outer space. It was all too unbelievable, but there it was."
G.R. Thomas gives her characters and her world so much history and background. I am amazed at how complex the story line is. It takes place in the modern day but also puts a twist on biblical and historical characters and events. This, in my opinion, was awesome and extremely unique.
As Sophia says, this world, "makes twilight seem like Sesame Street".
You truly have no idea what kind of story you are getting yourself into when you pick up Awaken! I really recommend this book! I have never read a book with such a well thought out world! I can not wait for the second book!
