Review: Enchanted Awakening

Enchanted Awakening - Alanna  Wilson

I received this book to give an honest review.


So when it started off I was really into the book. We get to meet Celeste and her first true love Cameron, when an unfortunate accident happens we see Celeste go down into a deep hole. She isn't the person she once was. 

As the story progresses of course she learns there is something within her but she isn't sure what, on top of that she meets Isaac and starts getting feelings for him. Though it seems he is hiding something from her and something has it out for Celeste though she doesn't understand why until towards the end. The girl with the purple eyes who is she and why does she not like Celeste? What is her role in this all? 

Now for me as I said I was really into the book it seemed to be going somewhere but then it started to fall flat for me and I was not connecting with Celeste like I hoped I would. 

I felt the way Isaac and Celeste rushed into their relationship seemed really fast. It was like oh I am starting to having feelings then bam all of a sudden they are dating and saying I love you. Now I understood there was a background with them which we learn about later on but it just felt forced. It didn't glide together. 

Celeste and her power to know everything well we learn why but it was like she just went with the flow of it all. There was hardly no questioning it or trying to figure it out like hey this happens to people on a normal basis. 

As far as timelines went for me it felt like everything that was occurring within the story was happening so quickly and not over a few weeks of time. Not sure if that was the author's intention or not but this is where it felt rushed. 

I did like the I guess you would call it a little twist that comes into play towards the end when Celeste sees what she sees. The way the book ended on a small cliffhanger has you wondering what else can happen.
