#BookReview: The Witchbeast (Awakening, #1) by Samantha Eklund

Synopsis: For nineteen years I thought I was a human orphan in a world of magical elitists—until I was shot in the head and didn’t die.
Leaving behind my miserable life of tempting men as an escort and then robbing them blind, I find myself fighting to survive in a whirlwind world of magic and deceit as I learn the answers to questions I had never wanted to ask.

On the run with my best friend, a handsome mysterious stranger, and his best friend, it seems like the more I find out about myself, the less I want to know. In fact, I think I liked it better when I thought I was a nobody.

Whatever we’ve awoken in me is dark and bloodthirsty, and the more we learn about it and its nefarious history, the more I wonder if I’ll ever be normal again.


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: Parts of this one were slower than others but overall the story was well paced.  I loved the characters and the story was fantastic.  A first in the series this book does a great job at introducing us to the world and the characters.  I do feel that this one didn't feel complete but I know that can happen sometimes with series.  I hope that in the next one we get more world building and more background.  This book made me want to know more and I can not wait for the next one.
