Book Review by Josephine Crowley

Written by

Awakening - book one of this first trilogy by Australian author Lara Morgan is the story of an ancient conflict.
It is between peoples of several nations and the good inhabitants who dwell within and the evil god who they live in fear of. Serpents also live within these lands and have magic powers and they too are ruled by the ancient evil god.
The characters in this book are many and as I read I referred often the glossary. Thank you for these lists, also the great maps which create a visual setting for what is a very interesting and engrossing read.
I enjoyed this novel from a new author who shows tremendous imagination and has the ability to hold one's interest to the very last page. Congratulations Lara Morgan. Book two in this series will be awaited eagerly.
