Awaken (Abandon #3)

This is the third book in a trilogy.  If you haven’t read the first two books this may contain some spoilers.

5 Stars

Pierce Oliviera has accepted the fact that she must reside in the Underworld to be with the one she loves but “happily ever after” seems impossible. The threat of the furies she’s already faced becomes even more dangerous since John breaks an important rule by reviving the soul of someone she cares about.  His action causes the imbalance of life and death that brings both of her worlds into chaos and someone will have to die to fix it.

The end of a series is always bittersweet and this is definitely my favorite of the series. If you take away all the supernatural elements of Pierce and John’s story there is a very realistic feel to it all. Their relationship is dysfunctional and tortured like so many real life relationships. The lesson is that relationships take work and compromise. At least that’s what I get out of it anyway.  The family unit is also relatable in its imperfections. The pacing is perfect and there’s quite a bit of action to keep everything flowing smoothly.

Obviously I have no complaints and recommend the whole trilogy.
