I mentioned Awakened in an earlier post, and now I've finished it, so here's my thoughts:
After a slow start, I began to think that this book - the eighth in the series - was beginning to lose it flavour, but halfway in it started to pick up and became what I hoped it would be. The previous seven books have all been most enjoyable, as I started this I was feeling quite dissapointed in the story and where the characters were going. This was redeemed around the halfway point where the story began to zip forward at a lightning pace, just like its predecessors. So it ended up being a good read after a shaky start. I'm giving it overall -
four out of five star rating.
I said in my earlier post (a comment) that maybe the HoN series was getting to place where it needed to end, but where Awakened finishes it leaves it open for a whole new saga, which I am pleased about because it's quite rare to find a series that last longer than three or four books.
So in my humble opinion, P.C. and Kristin Cast keep doing what you're doing and give us more HoN and many thanks for writing a really great series.
