Blog Tour of "Awaken (The Patronus)" by Sarah M. Ross with my review.


Awaken (The Patronus)

Awaken (The Patronus) Book Description: Lucy Donovan was supposed to have a weekend of fun in the sun, celebrating her upcoming graduation from college. In a split second, everything changed. A drunk driver ended Lucy’s mortal life.

Lucy opens her eyes to a world she never imagined possible and a new destiny: as a Patronus, a guardian of spirits. Adjusting to her new role and abilities while negotiating this confusing realm will test her limits and push her further than she ever dreamed she would go. From wayward spirits who don’t want her help to soul stealing vampires, and even a stuck-up British royal, Lucy must brave them all to save one spirit she can’t bear to lose.

Further complicating her confusing life is an inexplicable yet growing connection she feels to a member of her team, Max, whose mysterious behavior leaves her both confused and intrigued.
Waking up dead was just the beginning of her problems. Lucy’s death is about to become the greatest adventure of her life.

My thoughts: Sarah M. Ross has a fresh voice  and story to add to  the paranormal realm of books.  Her writing is imaginative and intriguing.  She has a very creative story and has presented it in a captivating manner.

Lucy is off to have a fun weekend.  She doesn't know what happens to her when she wakes to a strange room and unfamiliar people. She soon discovers that she was in an accident and she has passed away.  Her body was brought to another realm and revived.  The process took 5 months.  She is now a Patronus.  The job of a patronus is to protect the souls of the newly dead and bring them to a safe spot where they can wait to receive judgement.

The job has some serious danger involved.  The vampires, werewolves, and fairies all want to steal the souls before they are taken to the waiting area.  These paranormal creatures are dying out and take the souls to increase their numbers.

She finds herself working with a team.  There are several teams that cover areas all over the world.  They have a rough job, but they have a great rapport in the team.  They are friends and very supportive of each other.  It doesn't hurt that one of the guys is incredibly handsome and makes  her heart flutter.  His name is Max and she is instantly drawn to him.  There is some secret. There and a reason, but no one wants to give her the information she craves.  She knows her feelings and sudden attraction are  not normal.

This book is very engaging and easy to get lost in.  I liked the characters.  I really liked Lucy and Max.  They have an undeniable chemistry.  I would only recommend this book to those who are 16 or older.  The main characters range in age from 22 to over 900.   The ending is abrupt and lets you know that this is the beginning of the story.  The next book is scheduled for later this year. There is swearing and the use of the "f" bomb. There is also a near rape.

I received an electronic copy of this book to review by participating in this blog tour.
