"Awakening is definitely unique, a little like Robert Coover's"Stepmother" meets Twilight meets E. L. James meets Schrek -- andthis crazy combination is amazing" - AmazonReviewer

"This put the Grimm back into Fairytales, this is no Disney remake! Thisis a mash-up of Sleeping Beauty, Hansel and Gretal and even a dash ofRumpelstiltskin in the shape of the Dark King who wants the first born." - AmazonReviewer
"This book was easy-to-read and cute. The awakening part was quite steamy,and I enjoyed the characters. The combination of fairy tales characters such asHansel and Gretel was a nice surprise and helped add substance to the story.The drinking scene with Keira, Phillip, Hansel and Gretel was wicked andexciting." - AmazonReviewer
