Review: Wake

Author: Amanda Hocking
Release Date:8/7/12
Genre:Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy 
Summary from B&
Gorgeous. Fearless. Dangerous. They're the kind of girls you envy; the kind of girls you want to hate. Strangers in town for the summer, Penn, Lexi and Thea have caught everyone's attention—but it’s Gemma who’s attracted theirs.  She’s the one they’ve chosen to be part of their group.
Gemma seems to have it all—she’s carefree, pretty, and falling in love with Alex, the boy next door.  He’s always been just a friend, but this summer they’ve taken their relationship to the next level, and now there’s no going back.  Then one night, Gemma’s ordinary life changes forever.  She’s taking a late night swim under the stars when she finds Penn, Lexi and Thea partying on the cove.  They invite her to join them, and the next morning she wakes up on the beach feeling groggy and sick, knowing something is different.
Suddenly Gemma is stronger, faster, and more beautiful than ever. But her new powers come with a terrifying price.  And as she uncovers the truth, she’s is forced to choose between staying with those she loves—or entering a new world brimming with dark hungers and unimaginable secrets.

My Review: 

Wake is a thrilling and terrifying novel. Amanda Hocking takes the new popular creature, sirens and, puts her own chilling twist on it.  This book is beautifully written, with another twist that will blow you away.

Those three creepy girls, Penn, Thea, and Lexi are more than just tourist at Capri. They are interested in Gemma for some reason. What do they want from her? Boys keep disappearing. What is really doing on at Capri will give chills. 

This book was written in third person. Usually I don't like books written in third person but, it was perfect for this book. Wake will changed my mind on third person. Third person in this book was beautiful and emotion filled. 

Amanda Hocking did a wonderful job writing this book. This book takes to the world that is in the book, and it is like your there watching it all go down.  There was a mix of contemporary and paranormal/fantasy, that really topped off the book. This book was completely incredible. With amazing third person, and a creepy twist on sirens.

I completely loved this book. It is beautifully written. It is terrifying and thrilling all at the same time. I recommend this to any one who likes Amanda Hocking, or if you like sirens.
