Awaken by Grace White
The Lilituria Prophecy #1
For Daiya Cattiva, turning eighteen is a nightmare come true. Once she Awakens, her body will no longer be her own, and she will thirst for physical connection—need it to survive. But the bond is only temporary, and Daiya will be forced to satiate the demon inside her, time and time again. For that is the burden of the Lilituria.
But Daiya doesn’t want to hurt anyone—especially not the cute guy in class, with his annoying charm and fervent persistence. Staying away from Kai Stanton is the smart thing to do. The only choice she has. But when she loses control and kisses him, everything changes, and Daiya knows their connection is deeper than just fleeting lust.
Determined to uncover the truth, Daiya finds herself at the heart of an ancient prophecy that could alter the balance of good and evil forever.
She was never supposed to fall in love, but their love will change everything.
WOW!!! It’s been a long time since I was up till 5am reading!
But I doubt I could have put this book down if I’d tried.
I’ve read PNR books that have dealt with this particular brand of supernatural being before. But they’ve always felt sad and slightly uncomfortable.
This book shows a brand new twist on the idea and I loved the fresh and unique way this story was handled.
I loved Dayia and Kai, I loved the intense connection and how it wasn’t all unicorns and rainbows. Their connection was palpable and hot but sort of dark and evil at the same time.
I really enjoyed how the story played out. From the start I knew something good was gonna happen but I was completely shocked when it did.
Devin was frustrating in a brilliant way and I actually loved the dimension of fun she added to this serious story.
I fell hook, line and sinker for this story and by the end I was gagging for the next instalment.
This is one of the best PNRs I’ve read in a long time and I plan to stalk the author till the next book is released.
Brilliant 5 stars
