"Time to Wake" by K. Thomas (Book Review)
Updated: Oct 23, 2021
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Thriller
Book Description: Time to Wake is the first book in the Time to Wake Series. Book two, Not Right Now, coming soon!
Senlis is your typical artist. Empath, hater of mornings, and the bearer of a strange name passed down from her grandmother. With a penchant for caffeine and a pet ghost, she's just trying to live her best life.
Did she mention she also happens to devour souls? No? Well, it's a bit of a conversation killer… no pun intended.
When new neighbors move in across the street, Senlis strikes up an unexpected friendship with the equally quirky Katie. The two get mixed up in a party circuit that leaves a string of missing girls– and a trail back to Senlis' less than human origins. At the center of it all is Hunter: a guy not smart enough to keep his distance. He's arrogant, frustrating, and terribly distracting… Just, please don't tell anyone she admitted that last part.
Is Hunter involved in the mysterious murders? Or is he just in the wrong place at the right time?
As she tries to figure out Hunter's motives, Senlis ends up learning what it means to be a Nephilim, and how her past is playing a role in the murders. "Time to Wake" is the first book of a new-adult paranormal romance series brimming with suspense and quirky laughs!
Review: This author has witty dialogue down to a science. It’s fun and engaging, but still manages to feel natural instead of forced. I’ll be honest and say I’m mostly in it for the slow burn romance (sorry not sorry) but I really found myself appreciating the NON romantic relationships in this novel. Particularly the big sister and BFF vibes. Don’t get me started on the roommate, because I think I could read a whole book focusing on that alone.
Overall, a really entertaining read that has me chomping at the bit for the next one!
