Awoke (The Want Series) by K.T. Conte
Katya leads a normal life any teenager would be envious of – popular, pretty and dating the high school elite. Not she enjoys the spotlight, mind you. She wants everyone to believe she is normal.
But when Katya sees the real reason behind the earthquakes plaguing everyone in Boston, the truth rattles and shatters the perfect normal illusion Katya created for herself. An ability to see unearthly creatures and manipulate waves of life energy labels her as anything but normal. And it’s an ability that attracts unwanted and dangerous attention.
She reluctantly finds herself in the company of Gregor, a handsome member of an international spirit military team called the Kyrios. Her simple decision to help thrusts Katya in a world of the undead spirits, betrayal and a perpetual battle between undead monsters and the wardens that keep them in their place.
Katya must decide whether she values the simple and easy life she created for herself over the complex and difficult world now asking her to stand and fight.
It's always fun for me to pick up a YA fiction book. They are easy reads and usually have few constraints in terms of what can happen. The sky's the limit. Awoke fell right in this category. I actually zoomed through it in one day. Yes I am a very fast reader, but when this happens it means I am fully drawn into the story - it has come alive for me. So kudos to the author.
I think all YA readers will be drawn to the main character - Katya. She has felt out of step and different from the time she was young. All she wants is to be normal. For her - she sees things around her that no one else does and at the time we meet her, has begun to have difficult visions and nightmares. Through chance she discovers that this spirit world is real and becomes aware of a serious threat to the world that has arisen. Not only is she drawn in, but she is told she is central to a prophecy regarding it. Add in a dash of intrigue, betrayal and romance and you have the mix for a great story here.
