Awakening By Karen Arnpriester

The horror of her sister's abduction and Lucinda’s guilt manifest into years of acute insomnia. She appears to be miraculously healed when she participates in a test program that provides restful sleep but awakens a new dream realm … an alternative existence where Lucinda can create and manipulate any fantasy inspired by her imagination. Lucinda’s new realm is shattered by a dark evil that lurks there. Evil that is not confined to nightmares, but a sinister foe that also hunts for victims in the real world. Lucinda's discarded spiritual beliefs resurface and prompt her to begin a perilous journey against this very real threat; a heartless creature that destroys innocent lives. The dream realm, spiritual domain and Lucinda’s physical reality integrate and twist together as Lucinda rediscovers her faith and confronts the monster that threatens her very life and those she loves.

Awakening is a  well written novel.  Arnpriester has written a Fantasy, Thriller and Romance rolled up on one good novel. I was quickly pulled into the story as I started reading. Watching the fight between good and evil unfold in my mind as I took in each page. The character development was  good. I enjoyed the journey Lucinda's life took me on.
I gave this book 4 stars. A little to dark for my liking.
I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.

  4. I don't like to read evil dark books there is enough of that in the world today.

  5. This is not my typical book. Not sure its for me.

  6. Mary, where are you coming up with some of these books lately. Look at that cover this is not The Mary Reader kind of books. We like happy, getaway from everyday life books.The kind that make us forget about this evil world.

  7. Nope, nope, nope! I definitely do not like thrillers like this one. It would probably have me staying up at night! Thanks for the review.
