The Awakening (Sisterhood of Spirits Trilogy 1) by Yvonne Heidt

I’m more a contemporary sort of reader, and while I may believe in “special” energy, I’m not really a believer in ghosts, in a way, I’m probably a little like Jordan; but maybe, if I had the chance to meet someone like Sunny, head investigator and founder of Sisters of Spirits, a paranormal society dedicated to helping others understand what they can’t see, I’d have more chance to change my attitude.

The strongest point of the story is its balance; good mix of romance, drama, horror, mystery, all of them melted together in a fluid plot, with no bump. In a way, this what I liked more, but what it makes it so different from previous horror novels I read (and I admit, I’m not really an horror story lovers): I don’t really like when there are too much ups and downs in the story, one effect here and there is good, but always being on a roller coast is not my thing. The Awakening is more psychological than horror, and that is what I liked.

From the romance point of view it’s an opposites attract theme, but with a twist, while Sunny’s job should led her to be the “darker” side of the couple, even in her name she is the more open, light and adjusted, while instead Jordan brings with her a baggage of pain and past angst. Sunny needs to help her to look inside herself, to be able to open up to other.

First in a trilogy, The Awakening is also a confirmation of Yvonne Heidt’s talent which was already highlighted with her debut novel, Sometime Yesterday.
