REVIEW- AWAKENIG (THE DARK RITUALS, BOOK #1) BY CATRINA BURGESS

awakening
In Awakening, the first installment in the Dark Rituals series, a former healer turns to the Death Arts to seek revenge.

Seventeen-year-old Colina was born a healer. But after a horrific event forces her to leave her clan, she becomes desperate to learn the dark magic of the death dealers, mages who draw their power from the spirits of the dead. Colina was taught to fear and hate death dealers, but becoming one of them is the only way for her to get the revenge she seeks—and the only way for her to survive.

Colina asks a young death dealer named Luke to help her, but he’s reluctant to train her in the Death Arts. Little does she know convincing him to teach her will be the easiest part of her journey. To become a death dealer, Colina will need to undergo three dark rituals, each more terrifying than the last. At the same time, she’ll have to deal with her growing feelings for her mentor. Too bad the first ritual involves him strangling her to death.

As Colina undergoes the trials, she discovers an untapped darkness within herself. If she survives the horrific rituals and gains dark power, what will she become?

Catrina Burgess’ Dark Rituals series originally appeared on Wattpad with over three million reads. Awakening is the first book of four and was named Wattpad’s Best Suspense Story of 2014.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

When I first heard about AWAKENING (DARK RITUALS, BOOK#1)  was through my Nephew. He had read the story on Wattpad and told me I had to read it. So, when it became available on Netgalley, I decided it was time to read it. I am glad I did! Catrina Burgess has a hit, and she is an Author to watch out for. The characters and story line are very well-developed. Colina watched her family being killed and now she could be next. Her family is part of the healers, but now Colina wants to learn to be a Death dealer. Death dealers are the most feared in  the caste system, for they can control the spirits of the dead. Now Colina needs to learn how to become a Death dealer so she can get revenge for her families death, but she finds out there is more to the killings that she thought. Her family was part of a dark ritual to release a demon. As Colina completes the three rituals to become a Death dealer she finds out that she can do things that no other Death dealer can do. Is this because she was a Healer, or is something darker going on? This is such a great dark mystery, and I recommend it to everyone. I give AWAKENING (DARK RITUALS, BOOK#1) 5/5 STARS.

MY NEPHEW RECOMMENDED A NEW AUTHOR AND SERIES.


 AWAKENING (THE DARK RITUALS, BOOK1)

BY CATRINA BURGESS

POSSESSION (THE DARK RITUALS, BOOK 2)

My Nephew Wendell, who is my oldest nephew, just recently discovered this author on htt://www.wattpad.com and recommended this author  Catrina Burgess to me. He said that her books remind him of Kat Richardson‘s Greywalker (Greywalker, Book 1) books. He said that they are just a little bit darker. He cannot wait for book 3, for her writing is awesome. I have it on my list of books to read, now when I will get the time to read it that is a whole new story.

I have joined wattpad so I can see what authors are up and coming and if there are any good books out there. Apparently there is, because my nephew has just about read everything on wattpad. He has been reading 3-5 books a day. When he cannot sleep he will read all night long. I can say he now reads faster than I do now. I can usually read 3-5 books a week, but a day, not gonna happen,  Here lately it is a struggle to just stay awake when I get home from work.  That is the reason I have not posted in a few days. I get home, eat, sit down and get ready to post and before I know it, I am fast asleep. Usually someone has to wake me up to go to bed.

When I go to bed, I think I will read for a bit and before I know it I am rolling over onto my kindle. I have been doing that a lot lately.  I guess my iron is low again, because this happens when it gets low. I am anemic and have to take iron pills daily. Sometimes I forget, and I will have to double up on them.  I am getting off subject. Check out this author Catrina Burgess, I know I will. I guess that will be all for now, and I will talk with you tomorrow.
