Have you ever felt you belonged somewhere that you've never been? Chloe, currently living in Kansas, has always longed for the ocean. She never knew why, since her parents have a strong hatred for it. Chloe runs away from home to join her best friend, Baylie, for a vacation. By the ocean. Chloe has no idea that this trip will change her whole life and what she knows. She soon learns the secrets kept under the sea and discovers that her family has a few secrets of their own. Chloe becomes a part of something bigger than she could have ever imagined.
Such an exciting story! The details and history that Skye Malone put behind the dehaians and the landwalkers is amazing. She really pulls you into her world with her magical creatures. She also gives you a list of dehaian words and how to pronounce them. I finished this book in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. The book is told from two different points of view, which I really enjoy. You get insight from both above water and below. The words used to describe the creatures and their characteristics are so vivid and beautiful. This book played like a movie in my head.
I am so excited that this book is part of a series! I highly recommend this book! If you are looking for an exciting read that is full of love, family, threats, and friendship, then Awaken is definitely for you!
