Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Awakening: Rise as the Fall Unfolds by Carissa Andrews @CarissaAndrews @XpressoTours

Awakening: Rise as the Fall Unfolds
Carissa Andrews
Publication date: November 12th 2019
Genres: Science Fiction, Thriller, Urban Fantasy

The final five angels have been located and averting the apocalypse means somehow recreating the birth of Christ.

Morgan never expected total annihilation would come down to the actions of five misfit angels. But as each one’s hidden angelic power unfolds, so does the sinister truth… the entire Jesus storyline has been wiped from the collective consciousness, leaving a tear in the fabric of reality.

The final five need to figure out how their gifts are meant to fit together in order to set things right. However, coming to terms with the responsibility resting on their shoulders doesn’t come easy. To make matters worse, the demons have found them and unless they get on the same page quickly, the darkness will consume them all. But how can they make things right when the thing that’s missing happened more than 2000 years ago?

One thing’s for sure. If they fail, existence ceases.

If you love books like Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s American Gods or Good Omens, Joe Hill’s Nos4A2, or Stephen King’s (Richard Bachman) Blaze, then you’ll love Awakening!

My Review:

Five strangers have been pulled together by some unforeseen force and have just discovered who and what they are. The five strangers have just been told that they are angels and that they have a mission to complete or the world as they know it will be no more.

The five angels each have their own special powers and must figure out what they are and how to use them before the darkness comes. The five angels must learn to work together if they are to save the world. They must each put aside their attitudes and their beliefs and open their eyes as to what is before them. They must come together as one if they ever hope to save the world.

There is something missing in the world and to save it the five angels must find this missing piece and put it back together again if they ever hope to make things right again.

The world is made up of goodness and evil and you must know one if you are ever going to know the other. You can't know one without knowing the other. Sometimes one over powers the other and right now evil is at its most powerful and the darkness is about to hit upon the world. They need to find this missing link to stop the darkness and to put balance back into humans and the world once again.

Awakening is a fast paced read with twists and turns to keep the pages rolling from beginning to end with lots of surprises in between that will keep you on the edge of your seat wanting more.

I would recommend Awakening to all fans of angels, demons and the world coming to an end type of stories.
