I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
So my last review was the first book in a series and I complained, again, about being dropped in mid-air.
Well this book is also the first book in a series, but here's the difference. This author did it right!
She did leave some unresolved things that I want answers to, but there was a resolved plot line in this book! It makes such a difference when authors leave you satisfied, yet still wanting more and Sarah Noffke did just that with Awoken.
Roya Stark is a misfit and has been her entire life growing up in Texas. Her family has nicknamed her Stake - short for Mistake. How awful is that? Her brother even tries to kill her.
Then comes the day that Roya is told she is a Dream Traveller and she's taught to use that to her advantage. But she's also told she has a destiny to fulfill and it's not one she's looking forward too. She's a loner fighting against her fate and doesn't know who to trust, yet she must try to become part of a team to save the world from the evil being who is stealing their REM sleep and driving them mad. Oh! And of course there is that wonderful love triangle for Roya to figure out.
I really enjoyed Awoken and read it all in one day - it was that good. Looking forward to Stunned, book two in the series.

Around the world humans are hallucinating after sleepless nights.
In a sterile, underground institute the forecasters keep reporting the same events.
And in the backwoods of Texas, a sixteen-year-old girl is about to be caught up in a fierce, ethereal battle.
Roya Stark. She drowns every night in her dreams, spends her hours
reading classic literature to avoid her family’s ridicule, and is prone
to premonitions—which are becoming more frequent. And now her dreams are
filled with strangers offering to reveal what she has always wanted to
know: Who is she? That’s the question that haunts her, and she's about
to find out. But will Roya live to regret learning the truth?
