Book Review: Awakening

Title: Awakening (The Transitioning Series #1)

Author: Jordan Leger




Have you ever heard the saying, ‘when a wolf knocks at your door, beware?’ Or ‘keep the wolves at bay?’ Well, what if one finds you hurt and disoriented in the middle of nowhere, then decides to keep you?

Is there a saying for that?

What if you want to stay?

I don’t know who I am. I don’t know where I’m from. Can’t recall any of my past. Everything is new to me. It’s like I’ve been given a new life.

I know in time I will remember who I am. Or I hope I will. “What” I am. Until then, I’m Colin’s. The stranger who smells of the wild and looks at me as if I’m his last meal.

Colin says he can help me. Right now, he’s all I have because there’s no one else.

My Review

5/5 Stars

Colin doesn’t think much of any of his relationships until he finds a girl on the side of the road. There’s something about her that he’s drawn to. And not just her beauty. He feels as if there is a connection between them driven by something deep in his psyche. That’s what causes him to sit by her side day in and day out of her coma. Two months pass, and he fears that she may never wake up. When she does, she remembers nothing about her old life, and he’s glad. Colin already decided that this mysterious woman was his.

Colin was a steady character. Before Jane really had much of a role in the story, it was easy to emphasize with him and get inside his mind. After Jane woke up from her coma, I loved the relationship between the two of them. Colin was gentle but confident with her, and their relationship bloomed from something questionable to something beautiful. Even with Jane struggling through her issues with her identity, I thought she was an interesting character as well.

It was easy to get lost in this newest world created by Jordan Leger. Definitely recommended for PNR fans.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
