Review of Soul Awakening

Review of Soul Awakening

Soul Awakening is a Young Adult Romance, written by Paul Lonardo. Soul Awakening is a perfect example of what a good paranormal book should be. It doesn’t try and force some fantasy world down your throat. Instead, it deals with the real world and the paranormal as if they were just a part of everyday life.

This isn’t really like most paranormal books in that there are no werewolves or vampires. But it does deal with ghosts, well specifically one ghost, the ghost of a boy who died in a horrible accident. His girlfriend is struggling to move on with her life and she begins to see him.


Most people wrote it off as just part of the grieving process but she knows better because she can not only see him, but she can talk to him too.

Reading this book I couldn’t help but think about what it would feel like if I lost my high school boyfriend. The author really had a way of pulling emotion out of you.

While it’s a great book some of the things that bothered me was how her dead boyfriend’s best friend doesn’t wait any amount of time to move in on Alecia. And even worse, it’s Alecia’s best friend’s boyfriend as well.

When the love of your life dies, you are sad and emotional, and confused. All those feelings are there, but what I don’t think you do is have a relationship with your dead boyfriend’s best friend. I don’t know, that part of the book really bothered me, and honestly why I didn’t rate the book higher than I did.

That issue aside, it was a good read and I’m glad I got my hands on it.
