Review of Awakening the Nightmare

Awakening the Nightmare (Symmetria Series Book #1)Awakening the Nightmare by Lanie Malone

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Note: This review is my opinion, and it is skewed to my likes and preferences



I really enjoyed reading this book, it had every form of preternatural you could imagine.

Who or what is Corinne (Cory) DeLacy? Thankfully the author doesn’t give everything way until the end of the book, suffice it to say from the beginning of the book you see her as an entrepeneur, and bad ass preternatual bounty hunter.

Enter bad guy vampire, Trevayne complete with his megalomania. Trevayne and his demon side-kick, Kalen – He wants to rule the world as top of the food chain.

Nick soldier vampire who is infatuated with, yet at the same time ready to fight Cory at every turn. He is tasked with protecting Elehna, heir to the vampire council – sought by Trevayne.

First, this story is NOT for kids. There are some highly erotic parts of the story. With that said, this is a fast pace romp through the preternatural world having everything from Demons and Vampires, to every other form of supernatural being you could imagine.

I couldn’t help thinging Angel, lol – that show had it all. Cory is an unknown type of preternatural, and stays that way until the end of the story. She opens her home to protect Elehna, and ends up meeting Nick and his team of vampire soldiers.

The story revolves around Cory and Nick as they must come to terms with each other, and protect Elehna from Trevayne.

The author has added twists to her own view of the preternatual world. They can teleport, speak mind to mind, can mind wipe humans, plus she introduced different types of were creatures (various cats forms).

The book is well worth a read if you liked Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, or if you are simply a fan of this type of story.

As another reviewer said, you definitely shouldn’t judge this book by its cover.
