The Witches Are Coming


A Lost Legacy: Awakening (Lost Legacies #1) by C.E. Dimond

Finn Adams thought she knew what her life had in store for her; a mundane existence of day to day life. The arrival of a stranger in town turns her world upside down. When her mother goes missing, Finn soon discovers that she is a witch and she is being hunted for her power. Ripped from the only life she’s ever known, Finn is transported across the country to Broadhaven, Maine to discover the secrets she never knew about herself, her heritage, and the tremendous power that’s been kept from her for so long. Her loyalties are tested when she learns of her true parentage and discovers she is part of a prophecy, destined to awaken an ancient power that has been lost for centuries . As she struggles to learn from her mother’s past, she is faced with the ultimate struggle of good and evil, family or friends, she must learn who she can trust and find the power within herself to stop the prophecy from coming true.

Awakening is the first book in a series by C.E. Dimond and it’s about witches. I love to read about witches but for some reason I don’t have that many books about witches so when I read the synopsis for Awakening I knew I had to get it.

Awakening is centered on a Finn Adams who finds out that she’s a witch, about her past, her heritage and that nothing is as it seems. Right of the bat there is bad guys, car chases and magic. Now this may seem like it has the typical trope but it’s a little different, for one she isn’t treated like something precious, she is actually treated like she is dangerous and she isn’t taken away to a magical nice place, no it’s more like she is kept under very strict house arrest.

Finn is nice, has a little sassy and cares for those around her. She wants to do the right thing, she tries her best and tries to earn the respect for people around. Things are very hard for her but she manages to keep going and she doesn’t let people take control of the situation all the time she tries to exert control in her life but being a teenager, it kinda hard. The other witches in the compound are guys and their personalities range from family, friend to a little big headed at times.

The plot was good and there is plenty of mystery to be solve. Some questions are answered in this one but others still remain open and there is a little clue that readers figure out but Finn hasn’t and it’s so frustrating. Awakening ended on a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to read the next book to find out what happens next.
