Breen Kelly has always just tried to keep her head above water – working a job she hates to pay the bills and her mountain of debt. But when she discovers a secret investment account in her name, it changes everything.

Now she’s off to Ireland to find her father, but there she discovers a gateway to a world of magic and awakens to a past long forgotten and a duty she’s destined to fulfill.

Nora Roberts is famous for her fantasy romance books for a reason. She’s such a talented writer who creates intriguing new worlds and characters who brings these worlds, their powers and their conflicts to life.

The Awakening is book one in a brand new fantasy series which blends the modern world and the world of fae and magic.

Breen finds herself a very special conduit to both worlds with a past that was hidden from her and a future that is dependent upon her.

If you love fantasy books that sink deep into world building then this is a perfect read for you. At over 430 pages, Roberts uses this first novel to really build a back story for Breen and to expose us to a new world that exists beyond the human realm.

You come to meet characters from both worlds and soon learn why Breen is so important.

As in most fantasy romance stories, there is a building or developing conflict that threatens the people in both worlds in this story. Roberts gives us a glimpse into what the future may hold in this series but also leaves you on a hook for it to unfold in the next book.

As far as romance, it takes awhile to get to it in this book and it’s just a foundation that is built (I’m hoping). So don’t expect a ton of it in this book but I can only sense and hope more is to come.

If you’re looking to escape into a new world with great characters then jump into this book and see what’s in store for what looks to be another great series from Roberts!
