What Readers Are Saying
The story line was easy to follow and I loved how it differed from other werewolf/shapeshifter books I have read before. I fell into the book as if I as watching a movie. I easily connected with the characters, visualized them, and lived with them. I find myself wanting more…” – Tyrus Parker, Amazon user ★★★★★
WAKEN is an intense and mysterious emotion-packed thrill ride that doesn’t pull any punches. I don’t want to give away any twists in the story, but there were parts that were completely heart-breaking and no one is “safe” in this world–no matter how much you grow to care about them as a reader.” – Amazon customer ★★★★★
Be prepared to face the hidden depths of human emotion and sacrifice tempered with hope, love, and interesting plot twists. Family, friends, and neighbors are not who they seem and yet the plot is interesting enough to keep you guessing until the end.” – Tina Bastien, Amazon user ★★★★
