It’s Saturday!!!! We made it another week and today on my blog I have a review for Awakening the Trinity by Brittany Elise.
In the seventeenth-century, an all-powerful witch called Rionach the Dark ruled the Celtic nations with an army of enslaved werewolves. In order to restore balance between Light and Dark, the Trinity of Light was summoned to vanquish the Dark Witch and end the Battle of the Dark Ages.
Seventeen-year-old Quinn Callaghan lives in the small, rustic town of Silver Mountain. Its location may be rural, but it is home to an ancient pine forest that surrounds a supernatural hotspot–a nexus of raw and powerful energy.
When a charismatic witch from Ireland, and a mysterious guy with a secret of his own are drawn to the area, Quinn finds out that she inherited her rare abilities from a revered ancestor. Could it be that she shares a bloodline with the Original Trinity? Nearly 300 years later, the Darkness is returning to Silver Mountain, and the Trinity must stop it.
My love for writing began at a very young age–way before I could even type on a keyboard. I was always writing short stories and poems with a fan club of one (my mom.) I never stopped writing, but I don’t think I believed in myself enough to actually pursue it as a career. When I enrolled in college, I took as many creative writing classes as they offered, and ended up graduating with a degree in photography and minoring in English. I enjoy art in all its forms, but writing has always been my first love. Even when I was pursuing other careers, writing was always my go-to comfort. I later became an animal obedience instructor and met a children’s author through my dog training. She helped me get my foot through the door, so to speak, and I haven’t turned back since. During the day, I manage an FBO at my local hometown airport, and by night, I dive into my writing with my husband and my four-legged children by my side.
I was genuinely hooked on this book just from the cover alone! I mean come on how gorgeous is that cover!? I thought I’d better read the blurb after already agreeing to review it! I knew then that I would love.
I really enjoyed Quinn’s character, she might be a witch, but she’s down to earth and worries more about other people than herself. She is completely selfless. As soon as Wren entered the scene, I knew he had to be a love interest all for Quinn, but there was certainly a bit of a twist.
Annabelle, Quinn’s best friend, I loved. She is full of spunk and enthusiasm and she just drew me in. She has a sense of humour and I found that to be quite refreshing, especially after everything else I’ve been reading recently.
I do love YA books and the supernatural etc, but I just don’t seem to get to read them, I’m really hoping that will change this year and I’ll get to read more of them.
This was written flawlessly and I’ll certainly be recommending it to a friend that I know will love it! I am really looking forward to the next book. I loved the twists and the set up for the next book. I can imagine it’s just going to flow into it with ease. Obviously there was a bit of romance, and a lot of chin cupping and hair moving behind the ear, but I think that makes it that much sweeter.
Please make sure you add this to your TBR if you like supernatural YA.
