Awakening: Bloodline is a story of two parts - one is told by Nadia, who has just celebrated her 19th birthday in the present day. The other is told by Ananstasia in the past. They are one and the same, but it all becomes clear as the story progresses. Nadia has her friends and mother, but her life is changing and she doesn't know who she can speak to. New characters appear in her life, and she doesn't know what to do with them either.
This is a fast-paced story, full of promise. I would say that although this is very well written, this book is more of laying down the groundwork for future books. It shows the relationships that Nadia/Ananstasia have, their enemies, their friends. Nadia suddenly has these abilities, but has no idea what to do with them. She also doesn't know who is "good" and "bad". It does end on a cliffhanger, but the surprise given wasn't really a surprise, as the details given in the book sort of gave it away.
This is an intriguing book, and I loved reading it from both points of view. I can't wait to read more and find out what happened to the other characters in the time from Ananstasia to Nadia. Definitely recommended by me.
