Today on my blog I have the Awakening 3 Blog Tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, excerpt, review, and giveaway.
Nearly fifty years after the events of Awakening 2, Lilly decides to stop running away and returns to Italy only to find the threat of a vampire civil war growing. With the help of Beth, Carrie and Jamie, Lilly learns how to face her feelings about her tragic past and to accept that, whether Torren wants her or not, her heart wants him. But when she finds Torren in Rome, not only is he still with Vittoria, he doesn’t seem to remember Lilly at all.
Can Lilly convince Torren to leave Vittoria to be with her and help the Organization find a peaceful solution to the conflict, or will Vittoria and a vampire war come between Torren and Lilly and their happily ever after?
“Torren?” she said again, a little louder, and this time Vittoria’s head snapped up and her eyes, narrowing to slits, locked with Lilly’s. In them, Lilly saw fear, anger, and hatred. She supposed she could understand that. But that wouldn’t deter her, either.
She was just about to say Torren’s name one more time when his head cocked slightly to the side and then, following Vittoria’s gaze, slowly rotated in her direction.
Those impossibly blue eyes came to rest on her, and it was as if a warm wind blew through her. There was another shifting and clicking into place, but this time it was inside her. That gaping hole she’d carried around with her for years was filled.
Torren gasped and started to rise, but Vittoria put her hand on his arm, and he settled down again.
“Hello,” Torren said. His voice—that voice like velvet over marble—was full of wonder.
Hello? That was it? After all these years, a casual hello was how he greeted her?
Lilly’s stomach dipped, and then, as she continued to stare into his eyes, as she watched his gaze roam over her features without a hint of recognition, her stomach full-on sank.
WOW! What a way to end this series. As much as I didn’t want it to end Jeanie did an amazing job with it. The transformation of Lily from book one to this book is truly amazing. I didn’t think it was possible to love Torren more but I do.
Even though this is a vampire romance there is so much more to this book. There is cloned blood which could have the vampires coming out of hiding which is something the vampire council is deciding on. It’s such a great series and I can’t wait for more from this author. 5/5 Bloody Fangs
