Wide Awake The Goddess Chronicles Book 1 by K.B. Anne Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Where witches, werewolves, and magic aren't just bedtime stories, they're my story.
If I keep following the advice of Scott, my reputation for being a badass will be ruined. How dare he expect me to attend class when there's all sorts of weird voodoo crap going on?
Gram tells me Druids live among us. They worship the forgotten Celtic gods that once ruled the Earth, and for centuries, they've practiced in Vernal Falls without incident.
I know nothing about Druids or Celtic gods. I only know the visions began when Breas, the new foreign exchange student, moved in next door. I also know my best friend, Lizzie, is obsessed with the spell book I found in Gram's attic.
And someone is following me . . . which I find oddly comforting.
Breas provokes me--I mean really pisses me off. My friends protect me--but it's mostly from myself. And a mysterious stranger wants me. I'm not sure what his intentions are, but I'm willing to take the risk.
Meanwhile, evil forces are at work, and I need to decide if I'm the one to save the world from them. Any guesses what I think?
The Goddess Chronicles are a fast-paced contemporary fantasy adventure with a kick-butt heroine, some hot powerful heroes, and loads of magic just to make things more explosive. If you like Linsey Hall, M. Lynn, and BR Kingsolver, you will love The Goddess Chronicles.
So I accidently released Clayone, the Original Werewolf, which one would think would be the worst of my troubles... Oh, how wrong one would be. Gram and Uncle Mark, who happens to be my dad (I’m still reeling about that one), just informed me that I’m from a long line of Druids, and according to some prophecy I’m the Celtic Goddess Brigit reincarnated. I’m not even remotely magical, let alone a Goddess, but one of my friend’s is already dead and another one’s been bitten.
For now, Clayone's trapped in a church, too weak to leave, but on the eve of Samhaim, October 31, during the Super Blue Blood Moon's lunar eclipse, he will be more powerful than he's been in a thousand years. Lucky me.
If he can destroy the reincarnated goddess while she’s in human form, the werewolves' curses of imprisonment--the silver bullet and the full moon--will be lifted, and the unbridled reign of the werewolf will begin at last.
The fate of the world is in my hands, but the real question is, do I actually believe I’m Brigit, a reincarnated goddess, and if so, will I lock Clayone back in the hell where he came from before it's too late? I think we all know the answers to those questions. All I really know is that the full moon has never looked so terrifying.
Scott worries about my soul. Can you believe that crap? I’ve killed multiple people because I was too darn stubborn to accept that I was the reincarnated Celtic goddess Brigit, and now, that I’ve embraced my goddess self, I’ve figured out how to bring everyone back from the dead, and he’s too busy worrying about my soul when what he should be worried about is my boot in his rear end.
To make matters more complicated, Alaric returned from his show with shocking news. If I was smart, I would hop on the next plane and get out of Kildares, but I’ve never been very good at taking care of myself.
And do you know who showed up? I can’t freaking believe it. I thought he was out of my life for good, but bad luck always follows me like many of my bad habits. I don’t have time to play games. I need to learn to use my magic before the Dark Moon approaches or I’ll miss out on my chance to bring back to life everyone who died trying to protect me.
Three reincarnated gods walk into a wizard's keep and break all the rules.
Once, Caer was a princess loved by her father, the faerie king, and they lived happily ever after until the eve of Samhain. Balor, a giant, one-eyed pirate, betrayed the king's trust by spilling his blood across the throne room floor and claiming Caer as his prize.
Forced to live in the shadows, Caer's only companion is an all-powerful shapeshifting wizard who does not even know she exists. Watching from afar, she learns what makes a warrior's heart strong, but the early arrival of the brother and sister promise to derail her plans of revenge.
The hunt for Alaric continues, but Gigi's magic can't track him. Scott aims to help her by providing protection, along with constant banter, but his true love haunts his dreams. If he doesn't find her soon, his sanity might break. Gallean feared the day Caer, Gigi, and Scott met for the trí cumhacht, the three powers, would be set into motion. Each of the three could barely control their own powers, let alone be able to handle the union of the three.
But, when three gods walk into a wizard's keep, there's bound to be trouble, and a good bit of mischief.
KB once smashed into a tree while skiing. The accident led to a concussion, a cracked sternum, temporary notoriety as a sixth grader returned from the dead, and the realization that fictionalized accounts are way more interesting than just slipping on the ice.
