Nicole, a small town Alabama girl, and her best friend Kat take a weekend trip to Panama City, Florida. Kat looking to have a good time and Nicole hoping to escape the pain of losing her mother for a little while. Little did Nicole know, the escape would awaken a ancient power that is hidden in her blood. A power that evil wants for its own and will do whatever it takes to have it.This short story is a look into best friends', Nicole and Kat, life before a centuries old grudge and Nichole's emerging powers rips them apart. A power that Nicole wants no part of as it brings her to her knees and forces her to walk away from her small town life and everyone she loves.
My Mini Review:
Nicole is in need of some much needed time away from her small town neighbors and the pity they put upon her after the death of her mother. So off to Panama City for couple days of fun and sun with her best friend Kat. But things go from good to weird after encountering a stranger her first night there. Who is the mysterious stranger and what does he want with Nicole?
I don't usually read short stories...they are always just too short for me. But Blood Awakening seems to be a good lead in to the next book Burden by Blood. It gives enough to peak your interest and have you looking forward to book #2. I am interested in finding out what is up with shady, scary guy, what he has "awakened" and seeing what develops between Nicole and Nick. Burden of Blood will be out by August or early September.
