Awoken Book Review

Image result for Awoken jewel trilogy
Book: Awoken
Author: Trish Beninato.
Pages: 197 (kindle)
Genre: Fantasy/Sci-Fi
Rating: 4/5
Eighteen-year-old Jewel, reliving her memories, finds herself suddenly thrust into the past living in the world of mortals. Only this life and this version of herself is different. Yet, one thing stays the same, she finds herself in the path of Anubis an Egyptian god. She needs him even though it could cost her everything. But Anubis just sees her as an annoying complication to his quiet life he just can’t have- at least that’s what he tells himself. Even as he is drawn to the beautiful, dangerous goddess.
With Jewel's impending activation and Zeus trying to find them, Jewel and Anubis find themselves needing each other more than they care to admit. Only someone is about to betray the other.

Can Jewel save all of humanity from her own family in time?

Awoken is the second story in the Jewel Trilogy and is my favourite so far. It follows Jewel as she delves into the memories of her past life in Ancient Egypt and provides a great insight into her relationship with Anubis.

Jewel’s character development in this book was so much better than in the first book! She seemed much more at peace with herself (probably due to having her past memories back) and this made her relationship with other characters so much better. Speaking of other characters, a huge amount of new characters were introduced throughout this book and it broke my heart knowing that this was based over a thousand years before Jewel reawakened

I’m a huge fan of historical YA but have never read a time travelling esque novel before and I honestly loved it. The book primarily takes place in the past with the future only being mentioned at the beginning and end of the book. There isn’t much description of the environment but you’re so engrossed in wanting to know more about Jewel that it doesn’t matter.

I can’t wait for the next and final book to be released so I can see Jewel go to town on the Gods that betrayed her!
