Novella Review: Awakening by Caris Roane

He’s a warrior deep in his bones, but she wants only peace…

For decades, Warrior Duncan has had an on-again, off-again relationship with a woman opposed to his warrior lifestyle. When Rachel shows up in his life again, he wants to keep his distance, but the infamous breh-hedden, the myth-that-isn’t-a myth, bears down on him keeping him in a perpetual caveman-like state. How is he supposed to make war when he’s falling in love with a woman who only wants peace?

Rachel can’t believe Duncan is back in her life. She spent years getting over him, over all the fights they had about her dislike of the war and his love of being a Militia Warrior. The problem is, she never stopped loving him and the trance he’s stuck in has her out of her mind with worry. When the breh-hedden crashes down on her, she wants only one thing: Duncan … in her bed … now. But how is she supposed to stay with a man who represents what she hates most about their ascended vampire world?

RAPTURE’S EDGE 1: Awakening is a paranormal romance novel, a vampire romance with a fantasy edge, of the Rapture’s Edge Series. The series is preceded by two related books: BRINK OF ETERNITY and THE DARKENING. RAPTURE’S EDGE is part of the Guardians of Ascension Saga!

*I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.*

“Awakening” is the first novella in the Rapture’s Edge series by Caris Roane. This was giving to me for an honest review.

. It was the perfect mixture of action and romance for me.

This is Duncan and Rachel’s story. This story shows that love can conquer evil. Duncan was put into a trance by an evil princess named Yolanthe and she believes that Duncan belongs with her and wants to kill Rachel. Duncan is a warrior and his character is very likeable and he is caring, strong and loyal. Rachel is a very likeable character she is caring, independant and loyal.

Duncan and Rachel break the trance and the mind meld. But they know that Yolanthe is still coming after them and they will have to fight her and protect the Rapture’s Edge from her and her father. Yolanthe wants to rule all of the Earths and have Duncan at her side, but she realizes that Duncan will not be at her side.

I give this story 5 stars. The story flowed perfectly and there was plenty of action and romance. I would recommend this series to people that love paranormal romances with action mixed.
