Dead Awakenings by Rebekah R.Ganiere

Dead Awakenings by Rebekah R.Ganiere

Book Description

Evaine, a struggling New York theater student, enters an unsanctioned drug trial in an effort to pay bills. She awakens in a derelict hospital, chained to a bed with no memory of who she is, or how she got there. A band of pale skinned men, led by the gorgeous Luca, burst in, whisking her away to safety. 

Once at Haven House, Evaine is introduced to The Family. Like them, she has become A Deader, a reanimated Undead.

Luca is hell-bent on stopping the experimentations, and killing those responsible. He has no time for a Newborn who is struggling to control her rages, hunger, and powers. Nor does he have the desire to deal with the feelings she's awakening within him.

Despite their best efforts, Evaine and Luca find their connection intensifying when suddenly, she remembers not only who she is, but also her fiancĂ©, Tristan; who is still looking for her. 

Torn between her first love and her new heart’s desire, Evaine runs back to Tristan putting everyone in danger. When a rogue faction of Deaders, called Feeders, attempts to kidnap her, Luca suspects Evaine is the key to the experiments. 

Can everyone band together to keep Evaine off the cutting table of those she escaped from? Or will second death tear her away from everyone, for good?

Brenda's Review

Well let's start off with.... I SO wanted to give this more than five stars!It is well written and very well plotted out.I love the style of the writer,she knows how to capture your attentention right from the start.Then she holds you tight in her grasps clear to the end!Well done Rebekah,well done!
This is a thrilling and captivating paranormal romance with a twist you wouldn't expect.The characters....although they are paranormal,you relate to them. You fall in love with them.You feel what they feel.Before you know it you are so wrapped up in them you are rooting for them and not the humans!
I was on edge through most of the book and could not put it down.Evaine and Luca are just to perfect for each other.Then you add in the drama of her "Human" fiance.... Yeah I said that.Tristen never gives up the hope of finding Evaine when she suddenly goes missing.Once he finds her he finds that all is not as should be.She is differant now.She's not human anymore.She's dead,but alive some how and not in ways you would think.Not human,not dead,not a vampire,not anything he had ever heard of.But he was determined to help her and win her back out of the clutches of the beautiful Luca.The Luca that she thinks is in love with.The Luca that is perfect in every way.

I'm tellin ya'....You must read this gripping story!! I promise you will love it!!
