The Morrigan – Celtic Goddess of War, Fate and Death. I am a warrior of the Tuatha de Danann. History writes us as a supernatural race in Irish mythology that battled demons and the Fomorians – a race similar to ours and our rivals. The last thing I remember, I fought alongside King Arthur and his men against the Fomoire and an evil God. Then… I remember nothing. I am Morrigan, but I am no Goddess and no myth. The world has spun on for centuries without me and my people. The only traces of us existing are in the legends we’ve left behind. There are mysteriously few demons and new creatures I’ve never encountered, vampires and werewolves, that roam the world. The Gods are back to playing their twisted games for power, threatening to end the entire realm. There is little hope until – we are awakened.
Awakening is a dramatic, thrilling and exciting novel that will keep readers entertained, captivated and engrossed from the very first page. Fantasy/Myths and Legends stories are currently my go-to read so when I read the description of Awakening I knew that I had to read it as well as review it so that all you lovely readers could learn about it. Never before have I been so captivated by a fantasy story and this is thanks to the exceptional author N.A. Montgomery and her talented literature and so, if you are a reader who loves being taken on an adventure that is memorable as well as captivating, then Awakening is for you!
Awakening is a breathtaking novel that will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the book, Morrigan, the Celtic Goddess of War, Fate and Death and a warrior of the Tuatha de Danann. The reader will follow Morrigan on her journey as she finds that the world she is used to has changed drastically. Morrigan is used to fighting demons alongside her race however in the future she learns that there are fewer demons and less of the creatures she has encountered before and instead there are new creatures which she has never seen before and that they are roaming the world. As well as this the Gods are ‘back playing their twisted games of power’ and this is threatening the survival of the entire realm. The premise of Awakening is just this book lovers, however, please know that so much more excellence happens, and I wish I could tell you more but I do not want to spoil the novel so be sure to have a read of the book!
The story of Awakening is excellent and incredibly well-developed thanks to N.A. Montgomery, the author of the book. Montgomery manages to develop her world with immaculate detail; every event, character, and setting is well thought out and planned, and I was impressed by Montogmery’s flawless ability to do this. As I read Awakening, I immediately was drawn into the book and felt captivated by Montgomery’s spellbinding literature. Montgomery’s writing is detailed in the most immaculate of ways; the text is detailed but not too dense, it is beautifully written so that the reader will be able to immerse themselves in the story from beginning to end without difficulty.
Not only is N.A. Montgomery a talented author for her descriptive powers, she is also a phenomenal writer thanks to her characterization of the protagonist of the novel Morrigan. Morrigan is a character every reader will be able to root for, her grit and determination to not give up and to fight her way to ensure the survival of the realm inspiring and will have many readers caring about her. Montgomery has essentially written a character study of Morrigan, and I adore this approach in literature because it makes the story even more immersive and entertaining for a reader. Being able to accompany Morrigan on her journey was incredible and because Montgomery captivates her readers from the start, the reader will feel as if they are in the same situation as Morrigan, they too will be finding their way through the tumultuous landscape and feel the same emotions of fear, excitement, and power just as Morrigan does. Awakening is a truly immersive experience and so if you adore reading novels that you can be apart of then this story is for you!
As Awakening is a dramatic, compelling and action-packed fantasy adventure that will entertain and delight readers for hours on end, I, of course, have to review this incredible book five stars! So please if you love fantasy stories that follow a strong protagonist while being taken on a memorable journey, then Awakening is for you!
