Awaking was a quick, easy Young Adult paranormal read. It wasn't bad, but it was just sort of middle of the road for me. Morgan's character is a typical teenage girl who finds out she has special powers; I actually did like how Morgan handled herself in most situations, making thoughtful decisions and not just accepting everything outright because a cute boy said it. And of course, there are cute boys everywhere, including a potential love triangle. The story moved a little slow for me in the middle, there are lots of parties, relationship potentials and learning about new powers that Morgan has awakened. It picked up near the ending, where more secrets are revealed and Morgan must make a choice about what it means to be the 'One.' I will probably still pick up the next book because I want to know more about the Veneret and what Morgan decides to do.
