Wake by Dana Faletti

Book 2 of The Whisper Trilogy

When 16-year-old Callie Evans learned she was more than your everyday suburban teen, everything changed. One minute she was a typical high school student, the next, a demon-slayer extraordinaire. As a newly discovered Arc angel from heaven, Callie’s destiny is to fight the Darks that prey on human teens.

But when Callie meets Romuel, one of the most powerful angels of all time, her reality is shaken once again. Romuel will force her to become what she was meant to be, but will her boyfriend, fellow Arc, Joshua, be able to set his pride aside? He doesn’t appreciate Callie’s attentiveness toward the older, wiser immortal Romuel. Joshua found her first. And he’s not willing to share.

Is it Callie’s highly active imagination or does the Dark population seem to be multiplying exponentially in her world at an alarming rate? Newsflash: She’s not imagining things. They’re everywhere. And she’s got to find a way to stop them before it’s too late.

Join Silas, Jules, Jixer and the rest of the immortal crew in a story that will wake up the world to the war that’s been raging since the beginning of time, a war in which whispers are the deadliest weapons of all.

My Review:

Wake is young adult fiction but everyone should read it.  The writing is exceptional.  I could picture the characters and the scenes.   Many times I felt like I was watching a movie while reading the book.   The scenes were so graphically told I felt like I was there watching the action unfold.  The characters were described and although they were paranormal, they seemed so real.  I felt for the characters.  The love Callie and Joshua share, the fear when they were in the presence of Darks, and the awe as the rest of their world realized who they were.  

This is a book that I started and read it quickly, only 36 hours and I was done.  It was a book that I could not put down.  I did not read the first book and found that I knew what was going on, but I think now I will go back and read it so I can find out how Callie became an angel.   I will recommend this book to all my young adult readers and my adult readers.  Book three will be out eventually… hopefully Dana Faletti will not make us wait too long.
