Most teens turn sixteen and get the license to drive, but Lil Falcon gets the license to kill demons.
Orphaned as a child and raised by an eccentric grandfather, Lil is concerned with surviving high school and is unaware that she’s a Guardian—a being with super powers charged with killing demons and protecting humanity. When she meets Bran, a mysterious boy with amazing abilities, his psi energy unlocks her latent powers.
But Bran has a secret that can destroy their growing relationship, and the truth she discovers may destroy everything she believes in unless she finds the right balance between love and sacrifice.
Awakened left me hungry for more!
Aside from the amazing cover, the story is simply memorable. While im sure we are all aware of other angel/demon books now available but Awakened was like non before it. Not only was it about angels and demons, but how Walters described them, gave them narration, gave them life was quit unique.
From the first page I was pulled in. I thought that the first chapter was an amazing start to the book. It explained all that was to happen but not to much where you already knew exactly what was going to happen. Not to mention you get to meet a very sexy, exciting boy very soon, which I appreciated very much. The detail practically runs a movie in your head as you read along. The glossary in the front of the book was very useful as you read on. Sometimes there may be a word or a character position that you may not be sure of and all you have to do is take a quick peak there and all is good. Very useful with this book.
Lil as a character was very enjoyable to read. She was like no other female character that I have ran across and probably will not run across. From her attitude, her style, to the actions she makes. There were a few times were I questioned her actions but in then end everything worked out in a fascinating way.
Bran was a boy that I admired from the very start. Aside from Bran's charming good looks, his attitude was a pleasure to read. He had that "I dont care just do as I say" kind of attitude which is always fun to read when about a male character.
While it may take some time to get used to all of the terms, Awakened was easy to follow but kept you on the edge of your seat. You may think you had an idea of what was coming up, but the Walters proved you [me] wrong.
Both Lil and Bran have a past of which they had no control over. They both lost something that meant a lot to them but one of them may have been to young to remember. But, it will alter their future with out a doubt. Are these to perfect for each other? Or are they enemies but try to doubt it, even if there are people trying to break them apart?
Awakened was a refreshing new YA story that will forever stay on my shelves. I can definitely see myself re-reading in the near future. Now, all I have to do is wait for the next book in this extravagant series!
