Awakening (The Dark Rituals, Book 1) - Catrina Burgess

Awakening was a very emotional story because of Colina's life and backstory. Colina is a very strong young woman who has gone through a lot in her life, it's what's dictating her actions in the story. The author shows how PTSD is affecting this young girl and her emotional turmoil. The paranormal aspect to this story is phenomenal, it's extremely original and actually makes sense. There's a bit more of a realistic side to this story then a lot of YA paranormal which adds to the story. The romance in this book is definitely age appropriate, and it's very sweet to see it bloom from beginning to end. I'd recommend this book to anyone that enjoys paranormal, YA and some romance. Overall, I enjoyed it and will pick up the next one:)

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)
