    One thought on “Awakening”

    1. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Full Fathom Five and NetGalley.)“Whatever it takes,” I vowed.This was an okay story, but the pace was a bit slow.Colina started off as an understandable character; she’d lost her family, she was grieving, and she wanted revenge, but then by the end of the book she’d turned into a bit of a lunatic! She went from trying to avenge her parents deaths to doing some very bad things, and coming up with [...]

    2. A paranormal story unlike any other. If you are looking for an original plot look no further. Awakening is a story filled with the need for revenge and a character who takes an ugly path in order to survive and avenge the deaths of loved ones. Filled with so many unexpected twists and unbearable pain. It is beautifully, yet horrifyingly descriptive. I couldn't put it down! Every single time I thought I was getting to a lull where I might be able to stop reading, the hooks dug in deeper. Colina g [...]

    3. I was given this book to read for an honest review.Wow, so where do I begin Well let me begin this by saying that I have always stayed clear of books like Awakening. The reason why is because demons, the dead, ouija boards, possessions and anything having to do with conversing with the dead, has always scared me. Period. However, I gave this book a try. At some points I actually felt guilty reading it. Probably because of my own personal beliefs on this particular subject. Would I continue the s [...]

    4. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/Around 11% into Awakening, I knew this was not going to be the book for me. The pace is easy to follow, story fairly straightforward, but the writing very problematic. For anyone who reads many books, substandard plotting and lack of writing chops can become insurmountable obstacles to enjoying a story. But for those who don't see the cliches, I'm sure Dark Rituals will be a fun romantic read.Story: Teen Colina is a former healer wit [...]

    5. I have received this copy free, In exchange for a honest reviewI loved this, the romance, the powerful magic, the heroism and the revenge all mixed wonderfully, I really liked Luke, he is the perfect book crush, he is definitely going on my Ficional boyfriends list :). Though I did have few problems with the main character, for the most part her actions where excusable but some of the ways she reacted were flat out stupid and heartless. Over all this book came together nicely, I'd recommend it t [...]

    6. I received a copy from the author exchange for a review Revenge, Romance, Magic, Death, Rituals, Action, Supernatural, Adventure.Colina desperately seeks to become a Death Dealer, she will do anything, pay anything to become one. Her revenge will be achieved no matter the cost but what will she pay?!We follow Colina through the Rituals and journey to become a Death Dealer; who are fear and hated by everyone. It was interesting reading about Healers and Death Dealers magic and how polar opposite [...]

    7. I got this book in exchange of an honest reviewAwakening is about the journey of Colina, a healer who witnessed the death of her family and now is searching for revenge. Being a healer has no match for the murderers so she went to Luke, a young death dealer, and ask him to train her to become a death dealer, a total opposite of her kind. Luke doesn't want to do it, but because of the sudden change of their situation, he was pushed to help her undergo the three rituals. Will Colina survive the th [...]

    8. Great potential but I did not make it past the first couple of chapters. Why? Because all of a sudden I come across the use of the word 'Gypsy' - considered by many Romany people and others to be a slur - and not only that, but it was in the context of an amoral group of money-grabbing magic people.Yep. The indiscriminate, unprincipled healers who only do it for the cash are called Gypsies.Not cool. I deleted the book off my Kindle nearly an hour ago and I'm still annoyed that this was never con [...]

    9. what an amazing and fun read. The inside is JUST as good as the outside.In the first chapter, you instantly are introduced to Darla, Luke and Colina.From there, the action and adventure are on! You get to know healers and dark wizards - and how those each wield their power. By and large the creepiest moment was Colina going through each level of the test - the first was the most shocking and her reaction was so well done - I don't blame her. I loved reading this!

    10. (I received a copy from Netgalley, In exchange for an honest review.)I felt quite sorry for the main character in this at the start, but I wasn't a huge fan of her. Unfortunately, as the book progressed, I liked her less and less. This wasn't a bad read, but it did feel rather long. It dragged a little bit because of it, and felt like it took me days to read. Overall, An okay read.

    11. The plot twists and turns on this wild horror ride. Enter the world of death dealers as Catrina introduces you to Luke, Corlina, and Darla. Follow Corlina and her friends as she deals with becoming a death dealer and leaving her healer past behind. A must read by an exceptional upcoming author.

    13. I was very kindly given a copy of this book from Full Fathom Five through NetGalley in return for an honest review - Many thanks!Sometimes, you get used to a genre and it's conventions. It's comfortable. You pick the book up and you know you can count on certain things. And the sometimes you pick up a book in that genre, expecting those typical conventions, and you get something wholly and wonderfully surprising.And that's what I got here.Colina is a healer, but after something terrible happens, [...]

    14. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. To begin, I have a new appreciation for dark magic and ghost stories. Generally, I get all paranoid and afraid when I read books or see movies dealing with ghosts, because it is a part of the supernatural world that is so real. But this book didn't scare me. I also liked this book because it had a lot of unusual aspects that are normally not in books. The main one is the topic of revenge. Generally, we are taught that revenge isn't [...]

    15. This is such a dark and complex book . I absolutely love the world that is created here even though it is terrifying! I could not stop reading!! I think that Burgess does a wonderful job of creating a world that has many aspects of the urban paranormal fantasy world that we are starting to become accustomed to but is still absolutely unique - and of dropping us into this world without preamble. Colina and Luke are both such intriguing characters - both so complex and complicated. I love seeing t [...]

    16. (I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).I found this book particularly easy to read. I'm not sure if that was because it was on my Kindle, or simply because I quite liked it and found the characters easy to engage with. Possibly a combination of both.It was really good to see a book written entirely from one POV. After multiple POVs making my head spin in a lot of other books, this one was much less likely to give me a hea [...]

    17. If you’re looking for a unique and intriguing read then look no further!Awakening is the story of Colina, a healer, whose life has been completely destroyed. She has no one left to turn to so she goes to the most unexpected place for help. Luke is a death dealer. Which as you can guess is on the other end of the career spectrum as a healer. Luke is so surprised with Colina that he jokingly agrees to help her just to find out why she’s so desperate. However, things become very complicated whe [...]

    18. In Awakening, the first installment in the Dark Rituals series, a former healer turns to the Death Arts to seek revenge.Seventeen-year-old Colina was born a healer.

    19. **I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.**This is one of the most action packed books I’ve read so far this summer, it was very much a fantastic read all round. It had everything a good paranormal book should have, action, lots of spooks and at least a little bit of a love story.The main characters Colina and Luke, Colina is a girl with a horrifying past, that leaves her very much alone that is until she meets Luke and his sister Darla. They come together when Colina c [...]

    20. Colina was still training to be a healer. but one day, her family was killed by a group of men, destined to destroy every last one of them. she was temporarily spared because her brother had hidden her in the kitchen, with a spell to conceal her location. the men continued after her, forcing her to seek the Death Dealer Guild for help. she met Luke, who was reluctant to train her until Darla, his sister was captured by these men. to became a dark wizard, Colina had to survive three trials. first [...]

    21. I received an ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest reviewOMG I SO LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS.This book is about a healer babe who journeyed to survive and to avenge. She met a death dealer guy who pushes her away at first but later became her only source of guide, survival and love. When things became worse for both of them, Colina has to save her guy's sister while trying to save her own life, they face an unexpected change in life and an unexpected entities that will rock both [...]

    22. Well, let's start.This book is really great. Like REALLY REALLY GREAT. But it has some mistakes and one of them is really huge (and the reason why I didn't gave this book 5 stars).The main problem was the world. Who are the healers? What kind of special powers do they have? Who are the death dealers? Are there more "weird" races? Well, nobody knows. The author should write at least few lines about the world and how it's everything going in this world.To talk about story line. It was awesome. I l [...]

    23. I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.When I first heard about AWAKENING (DARK RITUALS, BOOK#1) was through my Nephew. He had read the story on Wattpad and told me I had to read it. So, when it became available on Netgalley, I decided it was time to read it. I am glad I did! Catrina Burgess has a hit, and she is an Author to watch out for. The characters and story line are very well-developed. Colina watched her family being killed and now she could be next. Her famil [...]

    24. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.Awakening had me gripped from the first to the last page. From the beginning Catrina Burgess managed to create this other world where magic fitted into the everyday life of how we live, making the paranormal aspect a bit less surreal and easier to relate.Awakening is about a teenage girl called Colina and her life after the murder of her family. On the run from the dark wizards that killed her family, Colina finds Luke, a young death dealer w [...]

    25. Awakening was a very emotional story because of Colina's life and backstory. Colina is a very strong young woman who has gone through a lot in her life, it's what's dictating her actions in the story. The author shows how PTSD is affecting this young girl and her emotional turmoil. The paranormal aspect to this story is phenomenal, it's extremely original and actually makes sense. There's a bit more of a realistic side to this story then a lot of YA paranormal which adds to the story. The romanc [...]

    26. In the Awakening, Dark Rituals, Book 1, Catrina Burgess magically combines a world of death, love, ancient mythology and revenge. Written in first-person text, the reader follows Colina as she describes numerous terrifying experiences through her own eyes. During this adventure she gains strength, wisdom and more. The story line moves along at a good pace and entertains you the entire time. Though I will not spoil the plot here, the book ends well and leaves a broad spectrum of possibilities for [...]

    27. I absolutely loved this book!! These kinds i share with my friends. If i had my own copy i would love to read it again multiple times. If i could i would even volunteer to go to place to place just read this book!

    28. Oh man. I am still reeling from this book. I have a certain type of story that I like, and this one was checking off all the boxes. I expected things to proceed one way, and that seemed to be where they were going. At one point I thought about what would happen if (view spoiler)[this one character died (hide spoiler)], but this is the first book in a series of four, so that seemed highly unlikely. And then it happened. It. Was. Devastating. Things got dark. Like, I don't know if everyone can com [...]
