DAMON – For twenty-five years he’s served as a plaything for the gods. With no memory of his past, he has no way of knowing if this is his ultimate fate, but he senses there has to be more to life.
Damon’s hope for more comes in the form of the Sirens’ newest recruit. Elysia is unlike any trainee he’s ever met. Not only can she remember where she came from—an ability the Sirens block—but she has an instant connection to Damon, one he’s never felt and doesn’t understand. Soon Damon is willing to do anything to have Elysia. Even risk the wrath of the gods to break her out of Olympus so he can keep her for himself.
But Damon’s past isn’t a mystery to everyone. Evil forces are at work beneath the surface, and before long, Damon realizes that the connection he shares with Elysia isn’t a random coincidence. His fate—and the darkness it brings—was cemented long ago. And when it is finally revealed, no one will be safe.
I am so ecstatic over Awakened. I have been dying to get more of this world because I've loved it so much from the birth of it. I am so happy that Elisabeth is continuing the journey and the characters because there is still so much potential in the Guardians world. I really loved Damon and Elysia because they weren't jaded, they weren't contaminated by their previous experiences in their lives, they were grounded, they were honest and they were heroes that you really wanted to dig into. You get a tad depth but I wish I'd gotten a lot more but there was so much to take in that I was happy with what we got. Elysia was great too because I was worried that our characters would wind up with the role reversal (Damon being the more feminine or weaker counterpart) but the way Elisabeth brought her to life they wound up being equals which was great.
I am glad you get the cameo mentions of the previous cast because there is still so much there but I was relieved that Naughton allowed herself to continue the generations and the responsibilities and burdens they carry and the way their world affects their lives... it all allows you to see what happens to their future which is interesting if you go back and start at the beginning after reading this book which I did because you get so much more of a bigger picture.
There is so much that I liked about this book but I can't list it all what I can say is that everyone should read this series.
