Awoke: The Want Series by K. T. Conte

Katya leads a normal life any teenager would be envious of – popular, pretty and dating the high school elite. Not that she enjoys the spotlight, mind you. She wants everyone to believe she is normal.

But when Katya sees the real reason behind the earthquakes plaguing everyone in Boston, the truth rattles and shatters the perfect normal illusion Katya created for herself. An ability to see unearthly creatures and manipulate waves of life energy labels her as anything but normal. And it’s an ability that attracts unwanted and dangerous attention.

She reluctantly finds herself in the company of Gregor, a handsome member of an international spirit military team called the Kyrios. The simple decision to help thrusts Katya into a world of spirits, betrayal and a perpetual battle between undead monsters and the wardens that keep them in their place.

Katya must decide whether she values the simple and easy life she created for herself over the complex and difficult world now asking her to stand and fight.

Fantasy, supernatural, and a hot Scottish man!? Rawr! I will admit, I felt the story started a little slow, but the moment Katya opened up to Gregor – I was sucked in and couldn’t let go. I had to read and I could not put the book down. (No joke, I read more than half the book in one sitting!) There was suspense and mystery and did I mention a hot Scottish man? I felt the ‘young adult’ feel of the book, but I am not certain it is a book I would let my soon to be 12 year old read as there was language, but is something I would maybe hold on to and let her read in a few years. I think it is something she would enjoy. I am not one who is usually upset when a book ends, but I definitely was upset that this book had to end. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and can’t wait to read more!

Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite Awoke: The Want Series by K.T. Conte is a great paranormal treat for young adult readers, a story that explores a teenage girl’s journey to accepting her exceptional gifts and following a very unique path. For a long time, Katya has pretended that she is normal, that she is like everyone else, but deep inside there is a turmoil of emotions, an unfolding world that she tries futilely to suppress. Yes, because she is gifted with incredible abilities, and she can see creatures and things veiled from the eyes of ordinary people, and can harness waves of life energy. When a member of an international spirit military group called the Kyrios enters her life, everything changes as she finds herself in the middle of a monumental battle that has raged for ages, involving undead spirits and wardens charged with keeping them in their place. She has to make the choice to embrace her path or retreat to the semblance of a life she’s created. There is a lot to enjoy in K.T. Conte’s novel and readers will enjoy the way the conflict is developed. It was interesting imagining what it feels like to be the protagonist as I read the story and I couldn’t help but accept the lesson that our gifts are our curses. Imagine the internal conflict of having great powers and not being able to accept those powers. The pace is fast and the writing captivating. Katya's world is overwhelming and readers will follow her with bated breath, caught up in the whirlwind of action taking place in an invisible world that affects ours in many ways. Awoke: The Want Series is well-plotted, set in an interesting and vividly written setting, and featuring compelling characters readers will love to follow. It was an engaging read for me.
