The Wakening

Review

The Wakening is a series that had great potential, but was spoiled by lazy writing. We loved the idea of Aedan dedicating his life to destroying slavers who had kidnapped his childhood friend. We especially loved the large scope of Aedanís planned revenge. What we didnít like were situations where characters did completely illogical things for no other reason than the author needed it to happen to advance his story. The most egregious example was the way Aedanís friend was kidnapped. Jonathan Renshaw didnít take the time to envision a believable situation for the slavers capturing the villagers. This is what we call lazy writing so we couldnít give many point to the story, the characters, or the book plot. However, we still love the idea of the series plot so The Wakening is saved from our Worst Fantasy List with a barely good rating of 2.5 stars.
