This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [I really loved the first book and high hopes for this one,however I felt it let me down in a few ways. It seems as though it would start new plots,story lines only to drop them and say nothing about them again will these things be picked up again at a later time in the third awakeend Maria the old elf on the mountain,aareon, raziverbOten and Byron.
Cami This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [ I hope those plots and characters will return, anyway, the author does intend to write more than 3 books so maybe some are going to be developed …more I hope those plots and characters will return, anyway, the author does intend to write more than 3 books so maybe some are going to be developed further book 4, perhaps? And you are right, the forest elves problems with the magic and all are still to be answered.
My personal opinion is that a war is on the outburst and Claire will find herself in the middle of it. It’s time to get some answers, in the next book. You could also try to ask the author, she is very kind and she might answer you, but I am afraid it is to much of a spoiler.
See 2 questions about Awakened…. Lists with This Book. Jul 08, Rebecca rated it really liked it. However, there still are many flaws, including the dense and often annoying protagonist Claire, and the uncertainty about the time period it swakened around 18th to 19th century to me, yet women are frequently described wearing “slacks” and with Claire’s age.
She drinks, but I doubt there are age-limits on drinking in this setting. I don’t know if she’s 17, awakeed, 26, who knows! What really keeps this series cazey for me is, honestly, the romance side of it. Farron caasey keeps the story alive; you’re just rooting for him the entire time. Though there are still doell questions unanswered in the story, this book managed to adakened some of them, but sacrifices a more exciting plot in result, unlike the first book.
The ending, after a heart-wrenching, hair-tearing stretch of chapters, was good, adding a little more hope to the situation and left what was to come open and intriguing.
Nov 27, Crystal Simpson rated it it was zwakened. She is constantly naive and wont just give into her feelings for Farron.
She doesnt want another broken heart like she suffered from the General. Some guy that she knew for like what a week tops.
After a week she was awakenwd in love with him and when he turned out to be a Dbag she was crushed? I was hoping that the second book would shed some extra light on her mysterious mark and Claire would grow up and come into awaoened but so far no such luck. I get more an Claire is infuriating. I get more and more annoyed that she cant open up to Farron but is upset at him for not opening up to her.
I do enjoy dark and shielded Farron otherwise I would have abandoned this series after last book. I hoping that it gets better but when you dislike the main character it gets harder and harder to continue on. Aug 28, Jordan Skye rated it odel was ok.
I must admit, this book hurt my heart. I liked the first one, up to a certain point. I hated how obsessed she was with the General, whatever his name was. She was so blind to how Farron felt, and to the General’s real intentions.
She didn’t want to admit she liked Farron, which made absolutely no awaened, after all they’d been through. And you’d think she’d realize that she wasn’t the best judge of character already, so whatever previous notions she had about Farron might not be so true after all. And you’d think she’d realize that she wasn’t the best judge of character already, so whatever previous notions she had about Farron might not be so true after all So I was hopeful.
I admit, I liked where book two was going at first. I wanted FarronxClaire to happen so bad, I acsey her indecisive annoyingness. But doell doesn’t ‘love’ him, or want to admit she even likes him, then lets him So now she’s dying, and trying to shut Farron out, trying to find her mother and other people like herself, dumping Farron then stringing him along once again; and he’s so in love with her, he’d let her rip his heart out and still follow her.
Now I really, really want to read the third book, because the second one crushed me, and I need to know if Farron gets a happy ending at all. It’s been a loooong time, though. Is book 3 still coming out? Also, my apologies if I upset or insulted you as a writer in any way. I really have to be invested in a series to leave a review, if that makes up for anything. Jun 13, Stephanie rated it really liked oddll. Ready for the 3rd one!!!! May 06, Kristen rated it did not like it.
The title is Awakened but it should be Slept. Because a dreamless sleep is more exciting, less tedious and boring, and makes more sense. This is, as a friend of mine might say, a “hot mess”. The writing did not improve. I was really hoping that after getting one book under her belt the author would find a voice that wasn’t one that made me want to poke my eyes out with a hot ice pick.
So we pick up where Cu Originally published: So we pick up where Cursed left off. Magic has almost disappeared but Claire seems to have some. She has a mark indicating that she does. Farron, one of the elves traveling with her in the first book is with her when she gets kidnapped by Farron’s former lover.
Claire is taken to Farron’s kingdom and told she is a guest who isn’t allowed to leave.

Cqsey that King also wants her magic. And from there, we progress, really no where. The story makes no real progress throughout the book. We learn a very few tidbits of information about those who can use magic. But that’s pretty much it. I could have gotten more from a 20 page short story. I hate the author’s use of made up language and words and phrases that are never explained. Failure to provide enough contextual details make it impossible to figure out what some xasey them might mean.

I could have xwakened “it’s annoying” or “it’s frustrating” or “it’s lazy” or even “it’s deplorable” – each having it’s own meaning and you can’t tell what I might really mean. In this case, I meant all of the above. So maybe that’s a new word for me. This is one of the biggest and most glaring issues odelk this book and the first installment. The author doesn’t distinguish between characters very well.
We have Claire and Lianna, two female characters, discussing something. Claire answers a question of Lianna’s in one paragraph. Then in the next paragraph: Maybe she had expected something else, a different reason for her visit. She could hardly blame her. Which character had expectations?

There are instances of this everywhere. Any time there are characters of the same persuasion in the same room it the text is difficult to track. I don’t know which “her” “she” is referring to. Better writing would fix this. Decent editing would have caught this and required it to be fixed.
