Blog Tour: The Wicked Awakening of Anne Merchant by @jruthwiebe #review #giveaway

Book Two in the V Trilogy

Young Adult Fiction
Date Published: January 20, 2015

   Life and death, light and dark, spirit and flesh-on Wormwood Island, the lines are always blurred. For Anne Merchant, who has been thrust back into this eerily secretive world, crossing the line seems inevitable, inescapable, destined.

Now, as Ben finds himself battling for the Big V and Teddy reveals the celestial plan in which Anne is entwined, Anne must choose: embrace her darkly powerful connection to a woman known as Lilith and, in doing so, save the boy she loves…or follow a safer path that is sure to lead to Ben’s destruction at the hands of dark leaders. Hoping the ends will justify the means, Anne starts down the slippery slope into the underworld, intent on exploring the dark to find the light. But as the lure of Lilith proves powerfully strong, will Anne save others-only to lose herself?


I think that this series definitely shows promise. I loved the writing style and plot development. There was plenty going on and a lot to keep the readers attention. The main thing that I saw as a downfall was the fact that Anne can be a little unlikable as a main characters. I understand growth is important in characters, but I wish she would have matured a bit more from the first book to this one. 

There is mythology, mystery, and plenty of twists to keep you on your toes. Definitely worth the read.
