Awaken by Skye Malone Blog Tour, Personal Review and Giveaway :)

Title: Awaken
Series: Awakened Fate (Book One)
Author: Skye Malone
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Wildflower Isle
Publication Date: June 3, 2014

Running away from home was never Chloe Kowalski's plan. Neither was ending up the target of killers, or having her body change in unusual ways. She only wanted a vacation, someplace far from her crazy parents and their irrational fear of water. She only wanted to do something normal for once, and maybe get to know her best friend's hot stepbrother a bit better at the same time.

But the first day she goes out on the ocean, strange things start to happen. Dangerous things that should be impossible. Things to which 'normal' doesn't even begin to apply.

Now madmen are hunting her. A mysterious guy with glowing blue eyes is following her. And her best friend's stepbrother seems to be hiding secrets all his own.

It was supposed to be a vacation. It's turning out to be a whole lot more.

About Skye

Author Biography: Skye Malone is a fantasy and paranormal romance author, which means she spends most of her time not-quite-convinced that the things she imagines couldn't actually exist.

Born and raised in central Illinois, she hopes someday to travel the world – though in the meantime she’ll take any story that whisks her off to a place where the fantastic lives inside the everyday. She loves strong and passionate characters, complex villains, and satisfying endings that stay with you long after the book is done. An inveterate writer, she can’t go a day without getting her hands on a keyboard, and can usually be found typing away while she listens to all the adventures unfolding in her head.

Skye also writes YA urban fantasy as Megan Joel Peterson and is the author of The Children and the Blood trilogy.

***My Personal Review***

There honestly could NOT have been a better title for this book!  I love the mystical and magical elements that the author made seem totally normal to the reader.  Apparently there is a whole world out there that is unbeknownst to all of us and although Zeke is aware of it, Chloe is not.  She cannot figure out why she is drawn towards the water and yet her parents cannot get far enough away from it.  Chloe is scared of what Zeke knows at first, but begins to understand as she becomes more aware of herself and who she REALLY is - a Dehaian, a fish.  This however is not your typical mermaid novel, it is totally different from what I expected in a really good way!

I love the characters in the book and the way that the romance does not get in the way of the storyline.  Zeke and his piercing blue eyes are amazing :)  I know that I would not be able to resist his charms.  Suddenly the reader is thrust into the middle of this newfound life that Chloe has and the fact that she is being targeted by suspicious creatures she knows nothing about.  And every time we think we now know the whole story about what is happening BOOM another bomb drops and the reader is in shock again! Definitely action-packed and well worth a read!  Can't wait for the second book in the series :)
