The Awakening by Udey Adoga is a supernatural/suspense novel that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat and hanging on for dear life. The story follows the life and trials of Emily and Desmond, two people from completely different worlds, but fate has other plans for them. Emily has one goal: to become a teacher. However, the moment she got even slightly close to her goal, things changed for the worse. Attacked by dark forces, Desmond comes to her rescue like an angel. There is a whole lot of secrets that Emily has no idea about, but Desmond explains everything. Demons and monsters are descending to destroy everything in their path. Desmond protects Emily to the best of his ability, but he has issues that he keeps hidden. But not for long, especially if he wants to keep Emily safe and destroy the demons before they destroy everything he loves.
Perfect for readers of writers such as Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead, and J. R. Ward, The Awakening by Udey Adoga delivers on the promise of great suspense and incredible mystery. This action-packed story does not have a single dull moment; you can feel a thrill run through your bones in each scene and enjoy it. The narrative is brilliant, it transports you to Emily’s and Desmond’s lives so that you can experience it firsthand. While the descriptions are brilliant, the imagery sells this story to me. It comes to life and made it easier for me to connect with the protagonists. The thrill is real and constant, you can feel it like an essential character in the story. Desmond’s backstory and his constant struggle to do better, get a hold of his ability and keep his past in the past are handled perfectly. The ending is perfect and lays the foundation for a sequel. I cannot wait for more!
