The Dark Awakening
by D.L. Blade
Genre: YA Paranormal Suspense/Romance
Release date: October 2018
Fifth Element Publishing


She's stalked, hunted, and a villainous vampire desires her blood.

Mercy’s life is anything but ordinary. A stalker lurks in the shadows, and a man rescues her from a life-threatening car accident, but vanishes right before her eyes.

But this man who she thought was a hallucination, tracks her down at a nearby cove, and claims they were once in love from another time. Another century. Mercy has no memory of this world he shares, and instinctively doesn’t trust him.

He also reveals to her a life-changing secret—she’s a powerful witch, vampires are real, and she's destined to destroy them.

Mercy finds herself dragged into a centuries-old battle against the undead, and a sadistic vampire leader has set his sights on her. And he will stop at nothing until he claims Mercy as his own.

She and her coven won’t go down without a fight. She needs to discover the truth about her past, and the power she holds, before it’s too late.

My Review:

A young girl Mercy awakens in the hospital after being in an accident to find her life has been turned upside and that the life she knew is no more. After she awakens she learns that she has been lied to her whole life. She learns that she is a witch and that vampires, werewolves and demons are all real. Mercy learns that upon her eighteenth birthday her powers will be awakened and she will be very powerful.

When Mercy was born her mother obtained her powers which is to be given back to Mercy on her eighteenth birthday upon her awakening. But there is one little problem with the returning of her powers. Mercy’s mother became so attached to the powers that she was willing to do anything to keep them. Mercy’s mother ends up in prison for trying to murder her own daughter. Mercy was then raised by her Aunt Lily.

Mercy has a run in with a guy who claims to have known Mercy in the past and claims that he only wants to help her with her awakening. Mercy is at the point now she no longer knows who she can trust or not trust. Mercy is also frighten as someone is watching and following her around. She has not been able to see the person who is following her but she can feel them when they are near.

The Dark Awakening is a fast paced read that will pull you into its depths and have you lost in this awesome world of witches, vampires, werewolves and demons. You will be pulled in so far that you will feel as if you are right there with all the wonderful and amazing characters. You will feel as if you have known the characters all your life. I could see each scene playing out in my head as I was reading making me feel as if I was a part of this world.

The Dark Awakening is filled with action on every page and so many twists and turns that it kept the pages flying by as each one was turned racing to the end as each twist was revealed and once I reached the ending it left me wanting more. I can’t wait for the next book for the story to continue.

I would recommend The Dark Awakening to all fans of witches, vampires, werewolves and demons. The Dark Awakening is a mixture between Vampire Diaries, Charmed and Bitten. If you are a fan of any of these movies or TV shows then you are going to love The Dark Awakening. One click your copy today!
