Here is the second review of the day! I will have some more reviews written today, hopefully, meanwhile, enjoy this one.
“Awakening the Trinity“, written by Brittany Elise, a YA Supernatural Fiction novel, published in September 2018.
Thank you Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Brittany for the eCopy of the book and for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour and give my honest review.
In the seventeenth-century, an all-powerful witch called Rionach the Dark ruled the Celtic nations with an army of enslaved werewolves. In order to restore balance between Light and Dark, the Trinity of Light was summoned to vanquish the Dark Witch and end the Battle of the Dark Ages.
Seventeen-year-old Quinn Callaghan lives in the small, rustic town of Silver Mountain. Its location may be rural, but it is home to an ancient pine forest that surrounds a supernatural hotspot–a nexus of raw and powerful energy.
When a charismatic witch from Ireland, and a mysterious guy with a secret of his own are drawn to the area, Quinn finds out that she inherited her rare abilities from a revered ancestor. Could it be that she shares a bloodline with the Original Trinity? Nearly 300 years later, the Darkness is returning to Silver Mountain, and the Trinity must stop it.

My love for writing began at a very young age–way before I could even type on a keyboard. I was always writing short stories and poems with a fan club of one (my mom.) I never stopped writing, but I don’t think I believed in myself enough to actually pursue it as a career.
When I enrolled in college, I took as many creative writing classes as they offered, and ended up graduating with a degree in photography and minoring in English.
I enjoy art in all its forms, but writing has always been my first love. Even when I was pursuing other careers, writing was always my go-to comfort. I later became an animal obedience instructor and met a children’s author through my dog training. She helped me get my foot through the door, so to speak, and I haven’t turned back since.
During the day, I manage an FBO at my local hometown airport, and by night, I dive into my writing with my husband and my four-legged children by my side.

Paranormal is one of the genres I love to read and write, so when I saw this book and read the blurb I was very curious and had to join in the blog tour. Witchcraft and magic, werewolves, mystery, murder and romance, a lot of elements in this book that complemented well the plot and setting, especially with a great group of characters.
The story flows around Quinn, the female main character, a witch that is trying to deal with her powers, and that made her real and I could empathize with her, which was great. She’s a good student, she lost her mom, she has a best friend… I liked her a lot, she’s part of the supernatural community and she’s just a teenager too and that speaks to my inner woman and connects to the memories of the teenage Jess that loved Paranormal romance novels and would connected with everything related to magic. Then, of course a guy appears. That’s when things start to get really, really interesting.
As we keep reading the book we get pulled into this paranormal world and a battle between good and evil, and of course it has that aspect of “connecting with our heritage and who we are”. There are a lot of elements in this story that I loved and does are just two of them. Others were: the well written characters that felt real and dynamic, and of course their interaction with each other and their pasts; the storytelling and the flow of the novel, that had action and suspense moments, as well as the unfolding of new information.
I won’t say more or talk about the specifics of the plot because I seriously want you guys to enjoy the story and all it’s mysteries, plus it’s the first book in a series, it wouldn’t be much fun if I would tell you secrets of this novel that would spoil the magic. Let’s just say that it has action scene as much as mystery, suspense and romance ones.
Overall, loved it. I can’t wait to know what else this series is going to bring us and what more information us, readers, can uncover in this paranormal world.
It was the kind of book that would attract my attention no matter if it’s now or years from now because I have always had a soft spot for this kind of genre and plot. So I hope you guys can join this journey and follow Quinn as she discovers herself gains confidence in her magical abilities and joins a group of awesome people to accomplish a goal.
