Book Review: The Awakening

Do you believe in vampires? Ghosts? The supernatural world?
Meet Lauren who instantly clicks with Gavin at a friend’s BBQ. Everything goes well until Lauren starts to experience strange things and hears a weird voice. It seems like a warning but from what? Lauren eventually makes the startling discovery that Gavin is a vampire and it has profound consequences for herself. The arrival of Daniel makes things even more confusing for Lauren as she is warned he is bad news from a ghostly source. Laurens life is turned upside down as things she thought were myths and legends become real and she struggles to cope with everything she has discovered.
Will Lauren and Gavin’s relationship survive and what about the mysterious Daniel?
I haven't accepted in a long time a book to review and when the author asked me to do a review for her book I thought it'd be nice. And indeed it was. This book talks about vampires, witches and ghosts in the modern England.

What I liked about this book was the simplicity it had. Even though Lauren experiences all those weird visions and learns so many new things from the moment she meets Gavin, it surprised me how cool she was. She never lost her temper and she was always accepting the new information. She had some problems and she was complaining about the fact that she couldn't speak to anyone about those, but still she was down-to-earth and not boring or nerve-racking at all. As for the male characters, Gavin and Daniel, they surprised me. They were the complete opposites. They were understanding and nice.

What I didn't like that much about the book was how fast paced it was. We read about a year of Lauren's life in just one book. I felt like I was reading reviews of the event's of her life and there were not many scenes, where you could stay and savour the moment.

Bottom line, I liked it. It is written by Lauren's point of view, so you only learn her thoughts, but the book in general is simple. The end was surprising. It has that small twist that makes you want to read the second one immediately.
