  1. It is time Time for me to give up YA books that have anything to do with the paranormal They re not working for me But let me tell you why this one specifically failed to make me want to finish it I got seventy five pages in and NOTHING HAPPENED Oh sure, there was a lengthy recap of the previous book paired with the insufferable inner monologue of this doormat of an MC, so there were words, but reallyNOTHING HAPPENED Actually, that s not entirely true On page 54 this happened Standing on one of [...]

  2. Actual rating 1.5 You couldn t go back to your mom s house and hide under the covers when you had a baby, pretending you couldn t hear its cries That big, fat, demanding baby was your responsibility now You had to take care of it, for as long as it needed you, even when it wasn t being cute and giggly, but when it was crying and hungry.I should never have worried about having a demon baby as a result of making love with John in the Underworld The Underworld itself is a demon baby What in the wha [...]

  6. So to say that this book made me an emotional mess is a complete understatement From the very first few chapters it already broke my heart and threw all of the pieces around At the end of a certain chapter I was like YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME I mean I knew there was no way it could possibly be true but for it to tease me like that Heart breaking D However Awaken was a great ending to this series despite all of the heart ache All of the plot lines were tied up nicely and I have no questions r [...]

  7. Beautiful cover I loved ABANDON, which was so perfect UNDERWORLD was even better, if possible, and I have to say that Pierce is one of my favorite heroines Cannot wait for AWAKEN Really, I m just so glad that I found a YA book that DOESN T deal with stupid love triangles.

  11. I received an ARC through NetGalley.This is one of those series that definitely does not get better as it moves along Awaken was an extremely boring, and kind of pointless, ending to a lackluster series It was pure curiosity and determination that made me read this conclusion Mainly, I wanted to know what the heck the plot was Well, what I thought may have been the plot in the previous book may not have been, and a new plot was revealed in this one I don t understand why it took until the third [...]

  12. Pierce, Pierce, Pierce oh man, this girl is ca raaazy This trilogy spans, what, a week and a half in total By the end of this, Pierce wants to marry John and have kids with him in the foreseeable future She s 17 and she s only properly known the guy for around a fortnight So apart from Pierce making stupid romantic decisions, she also makes stupid life decisions She s got this great necklace that alerts her to the presence of evil but she never checks it I m not sure why she s not dead yet, to b [...]

  13. Genre YA Paranormal Rating 3.0 3.5 Thoughts Awaken closes out the Abandon Trilogy in a nice tidy little bow without too many questions left to be answered In fairness, however, there is 1 important question that I really would like answers to and I m hoping that Ms Cabot finds a way to answer mine and Pierce s question Why does Pierce s necklace turn purple whenever she s around Kayla I m pretty sure others haven t mentioned this little tidbit, but, this happens when I take copious notes and act [...]

  14.

  16. Anything can happen in the blink of an eye Anything at all.One Two Three.Blink.Once upon a time I read literally everything, and I do mean everything, Meg Cabot wrote I would wait forever for her books to come in and I would read them to the point of exhaustion My favorite was the Mediator series Jump twelve years later to 2013 and I still think about her fun, witty writing and why I loved the books so much I was so happy to find this series and see that she had added some stories to her long l [...]

  17. my heart is totally broken that I didn t enjoy this book the way I so desperately wanted to.uuggh where to begin the cover I L O V E it sensuous purple, john in pierce s arms beautiful and terribly deceiving I waited with baited breath for this book I mean, it was almost painful waiting for this one the first two books are some of my all time favorites but this was almost a total disaster Spoilers ahead view spoiler pierce was fine as a character, john was still hot and awesome, kayla s adorable [...]

  18.

  19. The finale of a truly adventurous trilogy has finally come to an end But did it really go out with a bang Personally I love the books, I love the characters, the plot and even the use of the Greek story But in this one I though that it was a bit short, also I think the ending wasn t explained well in depth However overall their was great chapters and a really interesting story s, I hope we have another book later on in meg cabots career to hear from pierce and John.

  20. Really 3.5 stars, but given the way the series started it redeemed itself.To see full review click here.I liked this one and oddly I didn t think I was because the first third because I was like nothing is happening While stuff was happening but Pierce was just a spectator and thenwell then, shit happens.I will have to say this is the first book in this series that really felt to me, genuine Meg Cabot Arguably, Underworld had its moments But I finally saw the development I wanted to see in Awake [...]

  21. If enough people go out of their way to help someone else, the spirit of kindness eventually breaks through the darkness, the way sunshine breaks through clouds after a storm and allows even kind acts to follow My hope has always been that some day kindness will prevail, and there won t be any Furies for us to fight view spoiler PlotWhen seventeen year old Pierce Oliviera accepted the undying love of John Hayden, she knew that she d have to live forever in the place she always dreaded the most [...]

  22. Awaken did not meet my expectations To be blunt, the plot was scattered and wasn t held together very well It was messy and random, and their were many parts through the book where I literally whispered Wait, what to myself I LOVED Abandon and Underworld I loved the relationship between Pierce and John I loved how Cabot interpreted the Underworld The books were captivating and compelling, so I was highly anticipating Awaken, but it was in many ways, a let down I had quite a few issues with this [...]

  23. I am in denial.How could it be over HOW I don t think you even understand I ve spent like three years of my life DEVOTED to this series THREE YEARS of waiting for each book to be released, jumping up and down when it finally is, spending a full day locked in my room reading it with NO HUMAN CONTACT WHATSOEVER, and then crying when it s over Repeat this process twice, with extended waiting periods and misinformation on the release date, and putting myself through the pain and thrill of re reading [...]

  24. I loved this series and its too bad it has come to an end Now lets sum up what happened well John gets his soul captured by Thanatos God of the dead yea we know Hades is the god of the Underworld Thanatos takes the souls and sorta organizes them so Pierce,Kayla,Alex,and Frank go off to the Isla de Huesos to find Mr.Smith see is he has any info for them on the way they run over Mr.Muller Happy face and John strikes thunder on him to finish of the Job once thye get to Mr.Smith house they talk and [...]

  25. Awful Just awful The entire series was a convoluted mess Dopey, idiotic characters ran around like chickens with their heads cut off, alternately making moon eyes at their significant others and having circuitous conversations about Greek mythology in the midst of so called battle scenes The plot was something a twelve year old fanfiction fanatic might have thrown together, and it was just as easy to follow The characters were caricatures of their respective stereotypes it s time for Meg Cabot t [...]

  26. i loved the whole series unlike most main characters in YA books, Pierce wasn t constantly in the need for the love of her life to save her and was capable enough to save herself and the people around her, she fought instead of playing the damsel in distress n she also was smart enough to figure things out from small clues which almost never happens in most YA romance stories and john was really funny so the book even made you laugh some things were basic YA like bad rebel boy with tragic past, [...]

  27. Eh, I mostly just got around to finish this series because it sort of counts for the Romance Genre Challenge.I didn t really remember the first two books very well, which turned out to be of a problem than it usually is There just wasn t a lot of catch up information It s only the series where I don t need it that re explain everything Anyway, this wasn t really bad, but the series is a disappointment Meg Cabot was one of those authors I was guaranteed to enjoy and I love the Hades Persephone m [...]
