Publisher's summary

No one ever wanted her. Now, everyone wants her dead....

Nineteen-year-old Silvana Cavendish struggles just to get by. Relying on her looks to work the streets as an escort, the desperate orphan drugs and steals from her customers to survive. But when her latest trick goes horribly awry, she’s shot in the head and buried in a shallow grave...only to awaken hours later, completely uninjured.

Stunned to learn she’s actually a part of the elite world of magicals she’s always despised, Silvana is forced to rely on a handsome stranger who claims to have known her parents. And when she discovers her true nature and its connection to her own murder, she’ll have to face down a powerful foe who wants to see her permanently put in the ground.

Can Silvana master her terrifying powers before her family legacy puts her six feet under?

Awakening is the fast-paced first book in The Witchbeast urban fantasy series. If you like badass female leads, splashes of romance, and fascinating worlds, then you’ll love Samantha Eklund’s pause-turning tale.

Note: unofficially rated TV-14 for violence, gore, language, and some suggestive scenes.

not for me

Awakening is not for me. The premise is interesting but not carried out well. The characters are immature and the story is fIat. I didn't finish this book and won't be getting the next book.
