It seems as though it would start new plots,story lines only to drop them and say nothing about them again will these things be picked up again at a later time in the third book?

And you are right, the forest elves problems with the magic and all are still to be answered. My personal opinion is that a war is on the outburst and Claire will find herself in the middle of it. It's time to get some answers, in the next book. You could also try to ask the author, she is very kind and she might answer you, but I am afraid it is to much of a spoiler.

However, there still are many flaws, including the dense and often annoying protagonist Claire, and the uncertainty about the time period it seems around 18th to 19th century to me, yet women are frequently described wearing "slacks" and with Claire's age. She drinks, but I doubt there are age-limits on drinking in this setting. I don't know if she's 17, 22, 26, who knows!
What really keeps this series going for me is, honestly, the romance side of it. Farron really keeps the story alive; you're just rooting for him the entire time. Though there are still many questions unanswered in the story, this book managed to relieve some of them, but sacrifices a more exciting plot in result, unlike the first book.
The ending, after a heart-wrenching, hair-tearing stretch of chapters, was good, adding a little more hope to the situation and left what was to come open and intriguing. Nov 27, Crystal Simpson rated it it was ok. Claire is infuriating. She is constantly naive and wont just give into her feelings for Farron.
She doesnt want another broken heart like she suffered from the General. Some guy that she knew for like what a week tops. After a week she was madly in love with him and when he turned out to be a Dbag she was crushed?
Ugh and Blah. I was hoping that the second book would shed some extra light on her mysterious mark and Claire would grow up and come into herself but so far no such luck. I get more an Claire is infuriating. I get more and more annoyed that she cant open up to Farron but is upset at him for not opening up to her. I do enjoy dark and shielded Farron otherwise I would have abandoned this series after last book.
I hoping that it gets better but when you dislike the main character it gets harder and harder to continue on. View 2 comments. Apr 13, Swathi rated it it was amazing. No matter how painful it was. The last words made it all worth it. Aug 28, Jordan Skye rated it it was ok. I must admit, this book hurt my heart. I liked the first one, up to a certain point. I hated how obsessed she was with the General, whatever his name was.
She was so blind to how Farron felt, and to the General's real intentions. She didn't want to admit she liked Farron, which made absolutely no sense, after all they'd been through. And you'd think she'd realize that she wasn't the best judge of character already, so whatever previous notions she had about Farron might not be so true after all. And you'd think she'd realize that she wasn't the best judge of character already, so whatever previous notions she had about Farron might not be so true after all So I was hopeful.
I admit, I liked where book two was going at first. I wanted FarronxClaire to happen so bad, I ignored her indecisive annoyingness. But she doesn't 'love' him, or want to admit she even likes him, then lets him So now she's dying, and trying to shut Farron out, trying to find her mother and other people like herself, dumping Farron then stringing him along once again; and he's so in love with her, he'd let her rip his heart out and still follow her.
Now I really, really want to read the third book, because the second one crushed me, and I need to know if Farron gets a happy ending at all. It's been a loooong time, though. Is book 3 still coming out? Also, my apologies if I upset or insulted you as a writer in any way.
I really have to be invested in a series to leave a review, if that makes up for anything. View 1 comment. Jun 13, Stephanie rated it really liked it. Ready for the 3rd one!!!! Oct 23, Kirsten rated it it was amazing. There is often a great deal of expectation placed on a sophomore novel.
Casey Odell, I believe, rose to the occasion in Awakening. In book two, Claire has survived her near death experience instigated by one she believed she could love. The fight for her life, "awakened" her previously dormant powers, but they have damaged by the cruel actions of another. Soon, Claire finds herself another prisoner, but this time in an opulent palace where she is expected to learn to master her powers.
While the There is often a great deal of expectation placed on a sophomore novel. While there, her relationship with a certain "silver haired elf" develops into a sweet relationship that Claire is unable to commit to due to the upheaval she feels her life has become. The novel ends with Claire embarking on a new adventure. I am very anxious to read the next novel. May 06, Kristen rated it did not like it.
The title is Awakened but it should be Slept. Because a dreamless sleep is more exciting, less tedious and boring, and makes more sense.
