Review of Awakened by Maddy Child

 Ever since my mother died when I was young my life has not been an easy one. You would think being the daughter of the leader of the vampire coven I would be living the sweet life. But my father is hard, demanding an elite coven to protect America from the werewolf infection plaguing our streets.
Thank goodness for my saving grace and bestie Sage Petrovik who makes my days bearable.
Clubbing on my birthday, an unnaturally gorgeous werewolf knocks me on my butt literally and sends my world spinning in 300 different directions.
Since then, my life has been filled with werewolves, Fae, a banshee, and the Wild Hunt. Oh and violet swirls shooting up my arms.
Torn between everything I have been taught my entire life and these unknown feelings that are starting to emerge.
Either way something is coming, I just don’t know what side I am supposed to be on.

My Review: 2.5 STARS

I picked this up because the cover and the blurb made me think it would be a book I’d enjoy, and while I liked the premise and the story, there were numerous editing mistakes that took away from that enjoyment. The story felt half-formed, and a little rushed through to the end. There seemed to be little point to the subplots and everything got resolved without an issue. I was hoping that as the story continued it would pick up, but it didn’t seem to. It’s a promising start to a series, but not one that I will be following, that said, if you like fast-paced stories with a lot of paranormal and urban fantasy elements then this might be a book for you.
