-From the back cover-
KALLIE ANDREAS IS A MYSTERY,
EVEN TO HERSELF.
Seven years ago Kallie woke up in a New York City museum, injured and traumatized. Alone and unclaimed.
Despite her shattered memories, she's worked her way into a position as assistant curator in that very museum, and now she wants nothing more than to pursue funding for her project – assembling pieces from the ancient Minoans.
But then the blackouts start. Lost time, stranded in terrifying danger, frantic visions that can't be real. A threatening phone call may be nothing more than paranoia and madness. Or perhaps not. It's time to start seeing her psychiatrist more often.
When a mysterious philanthropist invites Kallie to scour the black market with him for the most valuable of all Minoan treasures, the key to their lost language, Kallie can't resist. Dimitri is wealthy, charming, and good-looking, but she's not interested – not in someone who's clearly hiding secrets of his own.
Together, the two embark on a global quest to find the Key, through some of the most exotic and beautiful locations in the world – unraveling clues, pursuing leads, and fighting their increasing attraction to each other.
Meanwhile, Kallie's memories are bleeding through and she's teetering on the verge of a breakthrough, but what devastating truth is she suppressing?
When a strange woman who clearly knows Kallie's real identity tries to murder her, it's clear that Kallie's past and present worlds are colliding, in a deadly crisis that will finally reveal the truth of her past.
But will the truth leave room for love?
This Book earned a 4 Bark rating.
I'm not sure if it was the really cool cover or the fact that Kallie works in a museum that left me wanting to read Awakening. I mean, fantasy really isn't my usual genre and this book is a fantasy with a dash of historical. Tracy Higley is known for her excellent Biblical fiction stories but I hadn't read any of them before this book, so I really had no idea what to expect. Believe me, Awakening only whet my appetite for more of Tracy's books.
One of the story elements that I really enjoyed was how the events in Kallie's life mirror the story she is writing, sometimes occurring in the story before they do in her real life. It really keeps the reader guessing.
Awakening is an exciting story of danger, betrayal, romance, and sacrifice, set in some of the loveliest and most historical locations in the world. Don't miss Tracy Higley's latest thrilling adventure!
