ARC Review: Awekened by Patricia Vanasse

Welcome to my tour stop for Awakened by Patricia Vanasse!  The tour runs July 13-24 with reviews only. This is the second book in the series. Stop by the tour page for more information.

Book summary: 
In an attempt to protect their families, Livia and Adam set out in a search for answers that would change their lives forever. While on the run, Livia and Adam crossed paths with Daniel, who had been searching for them and the five other genetically enhanced teens Daniel knew existed. But getting out from under The Agency’s radar has not been easy. After being ambushed by the leader of The Agency that created them—a desperate attempt to claim what they lost just over a decade earlier—Livia was forced to leave an injured Adam behind, barely escaping to safety with Daniel. Now under the control of The Agency, Adam is serving the purpose for which he was created. Manipulated to forget his love for Livia and his past, he lives a life crafted by fake memories that enslave him to a life of following the orders of The Agency. Adam battles with vivid “dreams” of a life he does not remember and the strong connection he feels to the girl with familiar blue eyes.The desire for vengeance propels Livia and Daniel into a dangerous race to disrupt the destructive string of events that The Agency initiated seventeen years earlier. As they travel across parts of North America in search of other teens who are just like them, Livia will face an ethical battle over genetics, loyalty, and love. The race is on, and it is up to Livia to destroy The Agency and rescue Adam, but even if she succeeds at saving him, there are no guarantees she’ll able to save the deep connection they once shared.

        Even though it's been over a year since I had a chance to read and review the first book in this series, Resilent I'm happy to say that it seemed like no time has passed at all. I was able to jump into the story right away and follow Adam and Livia's journey. 

       Where Resilent was stronger on humor and a bit lighter, Awekened was all but that. Here guys have serious problems to deal with and with that The Agency is closer than ever and stronger than ever. Therefore, this book is also much quicker in pace, as it's constantly on edge. Their run is fast and what's more we get to see the story from different perspectives, or better said characters so we see what's happening on both sides. With that Adam and Livia are now apart, and because of that their love functions differently. 

        But this sequel isn't without issues. While Adam and Livia now get a chance to think about their emotions I missed seeing them together. In the first book those moments were nicely balanced with the action so it was much easier to follow it. The other thing that I had some troubles with were hints of a love triangle. No, there isn't one yet here, but I am afraid it might come to that. 

        Still I hope not, and I will continue to hope till the next sequel. 

Rating: 3 stars.

Broj komentara: 5:

  1. I remember liking the first book so I'm glad this was an okay sequel. Hopefully there won't be a love triangle in the next one and it will be even better.

  2. I haven't seen much about this one but interested

  3. Thank you so much for hosting a tour stop! I liked that this one had more action, that bit definitely worked better for me. But the possible love triangle, well I'm praying it doesn't happen!

  4. Glad you enjoyed the sequel for this one Tanja, even though it had a few issues of it's own.

  5. Oh, while the humour did seem to lack in this one, it's great that the pace was fast. That always makes the story super interesting and the read, super quick. I do hope you love the forthcoming book(s) more! By the way, it's lovely to read your review after so long, Tanja! Great one.
