I enjoyed this book a lot, though at first I was slightly bored with it. After reading on, this book had a good mixture of fighting, love, and intensity. The plot was well written and it kept me interested for the most part. All of characters were involved, leaving no character in the margins. This was a fairly fast-paced book. There was at least one fight scene in every other chapter, which in my opinion kind of didn't allow for much fluctuation in suspense levels. But overall, Awakening was a bold, amazing story about breaking out of your shell.
