Another blog tour, one right up my alley! I mean can it get better when handsome wolves are involved? Didn’t think so!
In the seventeenth century, a dark witch named Rionach ruled over the Celtic nation with her army of enslaved werewolves. To restore the balance between the Light and the Dark, the Trinity of Light was created to destroy the Dark forces and the Dark Ages by a massive battle. The bloodlines of the Trinity of Light continued to live on.
300 years later, Quinn Callaghan lives in a small country town named Silver Mountain. She attends high school, runs for the track team, and she has a best friend named Annabelle. Surrounding Silver Mountain is an old pine forest that surrounds a supernatural hotspot full of raw and powerful energy. Quinns life changes with the arrival of a mysterious girl from Ireland, and a guy who Quinn gets supernatural creeps from.
Awakening the Trinity was a really good book in my opinion. I was intrigued from the very first page. There is not much action in the beginning, but there is something with the story that pulls you in and makes you continue reading. The intensity of the story escalates steadily all through the story which makes it impossible to put it down. It is the first book in a series, and I have to say that I’m very excited to see where this is heading! I have some hopes and thoughts, but I’m not going to spoil them for you until you’ve read the book yourself!
My favourite character was by far Wren, our main male character. I just loved his mysterious ways of behaving, and the way he looks (in my head according to the description of him at least) doesn’t help either! I’m the kind of girl who likes tall, dark, handsome, and somewhat mysterious. I have the perfect example of this at home of course, but you know, you’re allowed to dream and such when its a book character. I also enjoyed Quinn as a main female character. She has certain qualities which I really appreciate in female characters! There was a lot of mystique connected to several of the characters in this book, and that was one of the things that kept me engaged in the story. I like a bit of mystery because it keeps my brain entertained with trying to piece together the story before it reveals itself, but if you’ve read my blog for a while you already know this. You also know that I’m shit at figuring the mystery out haha.
Awakening the Trinity also had some history thrown into the storyline, and that’s something I always appreciate as the history lover that I am! Whether it’s true history or not, I do not know, but I like to think that at least some of it is real. When I read this book I felt that it resembled Twilight a little, just more entertaining and better executed. I was never a big Twilight bug. I enjoyed the books and the movies, but that was it. Good entertainment while it lasted, and I haven’t reread the books or watched the movies unless they’ve been on TV or something like that. Awakening the Trinity was more intriguing to me. I enjoyed the characters more, and the fact that it was less teenage drama in the book. When writing a book about teenagers you’re doomed to have some drama, but please, there is a limit! Twilight crossed that line severely, and in my opinion to where it became tragic and predicting for the story. Awakening the Trinity didn’t cross this line.
I really recommend Awakening the Trinity to people who enjoy supernatural stories with good characters. This book will keep you engaged and entertained from start to finish! I’m really excited to where the story is heading, and I’m already very excited about the next book!
