Awaken (Abandoned Trilogy #3)
By: Meg Cabot
Overall: 2 out of 5 stars
I really wanted to love this book from the beginning, but I just can’t. I was very disappointed.
It was very slow to start and only started going around the last 100 pages. Those pages were really good though, but it took me forever to get through the first half of the book. It felt like a lengthy recap of the first two books in the trilogy, which was unnecessary since readers had to read through those books to get to this one. They are not stand-alone books.
On a positive note, I do love a strong female lead character and this book has that for the most part. I actually really loved a lot of the characters throughout this series.
The story line is interesting, but since it took so long for it to continue from the first two books, it felt underdeveloped. A lot of events happened in the third installment, but they felt anticlimactic and pointless to the plot.
It’s worth a read to anybody who likes paranormal romance YA novels. There is plenty of romance to go around in the first and second books of this trilogy.
