REVIEW BY MERISSA - Awakened (Semiramis Book 1) by Maya Daniels
Awakened (Semiramis #1) - Maya Daniels

Awakened is the first book in the Semiramis series, and we start of with Al, who is our main female. She is a strong character, who also seems a bit absent-minded at times. She is working in a place where she is unhappy, but has Daisy there to keep her company. Things change when she has a car accident, and her life changes forever.

This book is told in two (uneven) halves as you could call it before and after the accident. Obviously, there is not that much from before, and you spend most of the book with Al as she meets Warlocks, Gods, Goddesses, and Angels. She has a dry sense of humour which was delightful to read, and really came across well on the page.

Awakened is well written, with characters that jump off the page. Be warned though, there are a lot of them so you will need to keep track of who they are. With a few editing issues in words being misspelt, this was nevertheless an intriguing read. I was slightly disappointed we didn't meet Daisy again after Al's accident, especially when Philip is there so much.

Ending with a cliffhanger, this is a book to be enjoyed, and will definitely leave you wanting more. Absolutely recommended by me.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

A Lady Awakened
A Lady Awakened - Cecilia Grant I'm really not sure how to review this book between a cold, upstanding widow and a charismatic land management student, but I will say that it in its everyday approach to intimacy it really did wow me. There's this scene, when fondness of the part of the hero was building, that made my heart kick just right.

And here's a heroine I admire, working to do the right thing the only way she can. This book did not rely on sex, but a genuine friendship between the two main characters. Conversely, sex only served to alienate them from one another in the absolutely stiff and uncomfortable scenes.

I guess what I'm trying to say is this book felt weird realistic for the beginning of a relationship...and it was such a good read.

Daughter Of Ash
Daughter of Ash (The Awakened Book 4) - Matthew S. Cox

So far, The Awakened has been a series that has moved a lot. A new main character at the start of each new book, but the same very interesting world that they try to live in. While some of them eventually come together, it is also a weakness, since you have to get to know the character each time over and you loose some of the bond you had gotten with the series.

Kate is a Midas-like assassin, only she burns everything she touches, instead of turning it into gold. This has left her with for example holographic clothing. When she hears an alternative is available in the Badlands, she leaves her job as an assassin to pursue this.

While Kate was an interesting character, she had to grow on me. Like the previous books in the series, it was rather gloomy. But I still like the series and will continue with it. There seems to be some convergence in the story so I'm interested to see where exactly it is heading.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Down the freebie rabbit hole ...
Darkness Awakened - Stephanie Rowe
Southern Spirits (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Book 1) - Angie Fox
The Accidental Demon Slayer - Angie Fox
Forced Compliance (The Galactic Outlaws Book 1) - Bradford Bates
Witched At Birth (A Paris, Texas Romance) - Dakota Cassidy
Thunder Hunter - Rachel Medhurst
Necessary Magic - Val St. Crowe
The Royal Companion: An epic love story (The Companion series Book 1) - Tanya Bird

Browsing on Amazon to fill in book data and glancing at goodreads SOS group's freebie thread, some kindle edition finds that were free today.

 

Yes, I do know better and the TBR is staggering.

 

I had already read and enjoyed (but still free):  Southern Spirits (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Book 1) - Angie Fox  and The Accidental Demon Slayer - Angie Fox  

 

There were more on that thread (skipping to the newest posts that's https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/449475-book-freebies-kindle-nook-author-pub-other?comment=178853157&page=174#comment_178700740 ); some I skipped for no other reason than too many quoted praises in place of the book description ( or already read/downloaded, seemed to be short stories,  serial episodes which I'm not really in the mood to read...).

3rd book down.
Lover Awakened - J.R. Ward

Well my crochet project is taking time to add a row. I am close to finishing but each row is longer so more audio books. Finished the 3rd book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. This one was dark, so far they have all been steamy, violent and intriguing. This one was sad and the abuse hurt my heart. My biggest problem is the silly drama between these warriors. On to the next.
