This is Ms. Hastings second installment of her Awakening series. This is a wonderful new series. It's based on the concept of two wounded hearts getting a second chance at love. This is a story that has it all, romance, action, witches and hot warriors. What more could you ask for? I really enjoyed this book. I could not put it down until I had finished the whole thing. Ms. Hastings has become an auto-buy for me.
The Awakening is upon Teresa Santiago. Despite training for this moment since she was a child, Teresa is unprepared for the vastness of her power or for her attraction to Rune, her Eternal protector and destined mate.
United by purpose-and-passion Teresa and Rune must locate one of the missing artifacts before its power unleashes the forces of darkness on the world. His strength and her ability to summon lightning should be enough to protect them from the government agents charged with imprisoning witches. But their enemies are both mortal and magical-and danger follows Teresa at every turn.
In this ultimate batter between good and evil, only through sacrifice will love conquer all...
