Review of Reawakening by Lisa McCourt Hollar

Reawakening cover



*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book.

Genre: Paranormal, urban fantasy


When Francine’s grandmother died, she was forced to take a job at a little market in order to pay her bills. One strange New Year’s night teaches her just how little she knows about the world. The people she works with are not at all who she thought they were, and suddenly she finds herself in the midst of a world full of otherworldly creatures, one of which is extremely dangerous. Women are being killed and Francine, who may be more than she believes she is, must work with an angel, a psychic, and a werewolf to stop the killer. But Francine must determine if the vampire is really the enemy, or if some other creature is to blame for all the killings.


Reawakening by Lisa McCourt Hollar was an action-packed paranormal read. There was just enough detail to give me an understanding of the world the author created, which made this a quick and exciting read because the story is focused on the action. Francine is a character that I loved instantly. She’s strong and a little dark, and even when her world is turned inside out, she remains strong. Hunter is another excellent character because he’s just the right blend of dark and light. The story is set in the modern world, where otherworldly creatures exist beside humans although the humans are unaware of them. Reawakening does end on a cliffhanger, and I’m looking forward to the next book. This is a fantastic book, and I definitely recommend reading it.
