Part mystery, part macabre horror and part paranormal suspense, ‘The Awakening’ is a very good read.
The story is interesting and complex, cast with believable characters who face their biggest challenge ever while just trying to get through life from day to day.
The central character is a regular teenage guy named Phil, who faces his own questions of identity and belonging by trying to fit in with the “in crowd”, as so many teens do. This sets off a disturbing chain of events that intrigue the reader and draw them deeper into Phil’s life as the story unfolds.
This is the prequel to The Dowling House, but works perfectly well as a standalone book.
It’s a really good read. I have awarded ‘The Awakening’ a Silver Acorn.
