The stories told around the campfire taught us of legends—tales of demons and heroes.
I thought they were only stories. Little did I know how true they really were. They were warnings.
I’m getting ahead of myself, so maybe I should back up. My name is Pamoon and until recently I lived a pretty normal life. Well, as normal as it could be growing up on a Cree reservation. You see, my real mom left me on steps of the reservation medical center when I was just an infant. Being Cree is all I’ve ever known, and all I wanted to be.
Our reservation borders the Florida Everglades, and the woods that divide the Res from the swamp are said to be sacred. They are also the woods my friends like to camp in to drink and let off steam at a campfire they built. My life changed the night my friends disappeared. They vanished one night while they were reciting a ritual they didn’t understand. They didn’t believe the it to be real—they were just having a little fun with one of the legends I spoke about.
That’s when I found out the truth of who I was, of who I was supposed to grow to be. I know I’m not making a lot of sense, but who could blame me. I just found out that I am the subject of one of the stories the elders told; the story of a sixteen-year-old girl, whose skin is as white as winter’s snow, come to send demons back to the Netherworld. The girl, who if the story is right, was born to save all the First Peoples. That’s when I found out I was more than a mere girl, but a goddess.
If my friends have any chance of being found, it’s up to me . . . me and Scout, my wolf cub, to find them and bring them home.
But I’m going to need help, help only the spirits can provide. I don’t know if I’m up to the task, but what choice do I have?
Evil Awakened is a dramatic, thrilling and exciting novel that will keep readers entertained, captivated and engrossed from the very first page. Supernatural stories are currently my go-to read so when I read the description of Evil Awakened I knew that I had to read it as well as review it so that all you lovely readers could read about it. Never before have I been so captivated by a supernatural/fantasy story and this is thanks to the exceptional author J.M. Leduc and his talented literature.
Evil Awakened is a phenomenal novel that will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the story, Pamoon. Pamoon lives on a Cree reservation, and she lives on the reservation because when she was just a baby, her mother left her on the steps of the medical center on the reservation. Growing up Pamoon was told stories as well as legends of demons and heroes and when she was young, she thought they were just myths, however now she knows that they were in fact very real. One night Pamoon was with her friends, and when they recited a ritual they had no understanding about, the disappeared and this shock disappearance has revealed shocking truths about who Pamoon indeed is. The reader will follow Pamoon as she discovers who she is and her destiny to save all the First Peoples and this book lovers is the premise of the incredible Evil Awakened.
The story of Evil Awakened is excellent and incredibly well-developed thanks to J.M. Leduc, the author of the book. Leduc manages to develop his world with immaculate detail; every event, character, and setting is well thought out and planned, and I was impressed by Leduc’s flawless ability to do this. As I read Evil Awakened, I immediately was drawn into the book and felt captivated by Leduc’s spellbinding literature. Leduc’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 J.M. Leduc a talented author for his descriptive powers, but he is also a phenomenal writer thanks to his characterization of the protagonist of the novel Pamoon. Pamoon 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 survival are inspiring and will have many readers care about her. Leduc has essentially written a character study of Pamoon, and I adore this approach in literature because it makes the story even more immersive and entertaining for a reader.
Being able to accompany Pamoon on her journey was incredible, it was remarkable to witness her awakening and discovery of who she indeed is and even more brilliant to observe how she finds her way in a supernatural world that is foreign to her. Because Leduc captivates his readers from the start, the reader will feel as if they are in the same situation as Pamoon; they too will be finding their way through the tumultuous landscape and feel the same emotions of fear, excitement, and power just as Pamoon does. Evil Awakened 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 Evil Awakened is an exciting, compelling and action-packed supernatural 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 supernatural stories that follow a strong protagonist while being taken on a memorable journey, then Evil Awakened is for you!
