Welcome to Havenwood Falls, a small town in the majestic mountains of Colorado. A town where legacies began centuries ago, bloodlines run deep, and dark secrets abound. A town where nobody is what you think, where truths pose as lies, and where myths blend with reality. A place where everyone has a story. Including the high schoolers. This is only but one…

Like all young witch hunters in Havenwood Falls, seventeen-year-old Macy Blackstone has been spelled to control her killer instincts. When she’s reawakened too early, though, her world flips upside down.

Daughter to the Blackstone witch hunters’ matriarch, Macy should have known what was coming, but her mother hadn’t prepared her. Overwhelmed with the surge of energy from the new moon coupled with a solar eclipse, she’s unable to handle the new sensations, and she flees town. To her surprise, she discovers an entire family branch of witch hunters living nearby. Only, the more she gets to know them, the more she learns about their dark intentions for both the witches and the Blackstones of Havenwood Falls.

Gallad Augustine, witch and boyfriend extraordinaire, possesses powerful magic, but Macy took off too soon for him to help her. Now, as her soul mate, his connection to her heart may be the only way for anyone to reach her.

Macy has one moon cycle—28 days—to uncover the witch hunters’ plans and return home before the town’s wards wipe her memory permanently and she forgets everything about her family, her home, and her one true love. And if she can’t remember them, she won’t be able to save them.

~My Thoughts~

Reawakened is another wonderfully creative tale in the Havenwood Falls High series. This time the reader is introduced to Macy Blackstone and her family…and the world of witch hunters. It’s a complex story with a well-developed cast of characters that kept me reading long into the night. Macy is in love with an unexpected supernatural; someone she may not have gotten involved with if she knew what they were separately, but that aspect adds even more suspense to this tale.

Reawakened is a well-written story that shows true love can stand against any obstacle–even paranormal ones. This was a nail-biter for me. I was terrified about what would happen to Macy after she ran. There were so many forces against her, I just knew in my mind it would be an impossible feat. I was gut-punched at every turn as Macy struggled to find her way.

Much of this story is set outside of Havenwood Falls and the author did a remarkable job of tying the two settings together. I learned a great deal more about the history and other characters of Havenwood Falls. I absolutely adore that some of the characters and places from the other novellas are intertwined. It brings an important familiarity to each one that makes the reader feel at home. I enjoy learning about the different rituals and rules of the world of Havenwood Falls with each story.

I highly recommend Reawakened to all fans of fantasy and paranormal genres!

Disclaimer: I would not recommend this story for younger teens. Some people mistake the YA category as appropriate for tweens and up, but YA is the age of the main characters, not the intended reader. There is mention of sexual activity in this story, although there are no specific details.
