Supported by a powerful witch and her brother, Hansel and Gretel, Philip and Keira have to make a choice, one that will define Keira's destiny. Changing their lives forever.
What Others Are Saying:
"Awakening is definitely unique, a little like Robert Coover's "Stepmother" meets Twilight meets E. L. James meets Schrek -- and this crazy combination is amazing" - Amazon Reviewer
"Laura is not afraid to break the bonds of this traditional story and push it to new limits..." - Aspiring Joy
"Author Laura Greenwood writes with an innocence that is reminiscent of children's stories but with a more grown up plot." -Mommsez...
"This put the Grimm back into Fairytales, this is no Disney remake! This is a mash-up of Sleeping Beauty, Hansel and Gretal and even a dash of Rumpelstiltskin in the shape of the Dark King who wants the first born." - Amazon Reviewer
"This book was easy-to-read and cute. The awakening part was quite steamy, and I enjoyed the characters. The combination of fairy tales characters such as Hansel and Gretel was a nice surprise and helped add substance to the story. The drinking scene with Keira, Phillip, Hansel and Gretel was wicked and exciting." - Amazon Reviewer
