Awakening (Raptures Edge Book 1) by Caris Roane

Publisher: Twin Bridges Creations LLC

December 2014

Pages: 2014

Contemporary, Paranormal Romance

Seattle, Washington Mortal Earth, Phoenix Two Second Earth

Duncan is a warrior that has had an on-again, off-again relationship with a woman that isn’t interested in the fighting of their world and just wants peace in her own life.  Suddenly Rachel is in his life again and even though he tries to keep his distance the breh-hedden, the myth-that-isn’t-a-myth, hits him and keeps Duncan in a perpetual caveman-like state.  Now Duncan is torn as he is a man of war that is falling in love with a woman that only wants peace.

Rachel has spent years getting over Duncan only to have him back in her life.  The fights they have had over the years involve his love of being a Militia Warrior and her dislike for the war.  The problem for Rachel is that she has never stopped loving him and now that Duncan is in a trance state she is going out of her mind with worry.  Then the breh-hedden takes over and she is only interested in Duncan in her bed preferably right now.  How is she supposed to have a relationship with a man that represents all of what she dislikes the most about their ascended vampire world?

This is another interesting story is a series of stories that brings a whole new twist to the different stories of vampires.  The world building is amazing and brings it to vivid life for the reader.  The stories prove to get better and better as the world building gets more involved and the way it is done there is no limit to where the stories can go.  The characters are complex enough to make for a story that pulls the reader in and doesn’t let go until the very last page.  This is proving to be an addictive series of books and novellas that will have readers constantly looking for the next book or novella.  For readers that love vampire books and paranormal stories this is definitely one series to check out.
