      For a person that is supposed to be a savior, she is kind of cranky and whines a lot. The story was interesting and the descriptions are vivid and come to life in the telling. I just did not enjoy it as much as I hoped to. I get that she was immature and was given a huge task, but boy, was she vocal about it all.As this is not my typical genre I gave the writing the high score and will only say that it was not exactly my cup of tea. I will certainly give other books and stories a chance from Sar [...]

      This is another quality YA fantasy novel in similar vein to The Hunger Games and Divergent. It is based on an intriguing idea of dream walking and contains lots of very charming and interesting young people. The heroine is tough although with a tendency to bouts of complaining which I skipped over! She is also very poor at choosing her men and totally ignores the one I like best whilst dangling two others on strings. All very entertaining. The story is exciting and interesting and the whole thin [...]

      Superb writing, original, engrossing, thrilling!!!I am hooked on The Lucidites Series. Yes, on to Stunned (The Lucidites, Book 2)5 fantastically surreal stars!

      I've always been intrigued by dreams and in this young adult fantasy, Noffke explores what happens when people are attacked in their dreams. I really enjoyed this book and it's my first by Sarah Noffke. She's does an excellent job world-building and I was drawn right in. I kind of liked that the family treated the MC like an outcast. When I was 16, I felt that way, too. It added depth and realism to the MC. Highly recommend!My Rating: 5 stars

      *I received this book from the author in exchange for a honest review*First off can I just say people this book is so amazing it's epic. Sarah Noffke knows how to write characters and a fabulously detailed world. This book follows Roya a girl who finds out she's a dream traveller (a lucidites) and is set with the task of defeating an all powerful evil dream traveller who is making Normal people hallucinate and become violent and killing lucidites. At first she is lead to believe that she is with [...]

      Meet 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?Ahhhhh I forgot to post updates about this but it was so good! A stand out [...]

      Received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.Sarah Noffke has written an interesting twist on time travel. Instead of travelling via a machine or some other device, certain individuals can travel via sleep. They can travel to the past or within the present. The future is completely off-limits.Noffke’s story is about Roya Stark, a Dream Traveler, who must challenge a Dream Warlord, Zhuang. About eighty percent of "Awoken" is devoted to how she trains for this sci-fi sho [...]

    8. Shannon (aka The Tale Temptress) on said:

      I had not previously heard of this book prior to signing up to be a tour host. So I went into reading it with no expectations. It doesn't take long before the "strangers" mentioned in the summary have Roya at a special institute where she's to receive training. When I first started the book, I thought, "oh, great, yet another story where they train teenagers to be fighters a la Divergent, etc." This book, however, turned out to be so much more.The "training" that Roya and other kids her age must [...]

    9. Colleen on said:

      Awoken is the story of Roya, a sarcastic, sometimes belligerent teenage girl who has the uncanny ability to dream travel. Dream traveling is exactly what it sounds like- the ability to travel while dreaming. Imagine closing your eyes and finding yourself in Tahiti bathing in the sun or people-watching on a rainy boulevard in Paris. From the moment I opened Awoken I was transported into a world that I had never been to before. I immediately felt a connection to Roya because she is an avid reader, [...]

    10. Sarah Brocious on said:

      I just realized that I never completed my review! (life gets in the way now and then ;))What can I say about Awoken? Well, right after reading it I quickly bought and read the remainder of the series! So I suppose that this speaks for the whole series! It was a world I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of as I read.Sarah has an incredible gift for wooing the reader into her stories. The dream aspect and the "no limitations" theme throughout had me wishing I could be one of those characters. (even [...]

      Being a reader who gravitates toward contemporaries, this is not the kind of book I'd normally pick up, though I do read paranormals from time to time. I came to read Awoken through a new feature I'm trying, My Indie Inbox. I let my blog readers choose an indie title for me to read and review, and they voted for AwokenI'd call Awoken a sort of paranormal-slash-sci-fi story. Sixteen year-old Roya Stark has always felt a little out of place in her family. When the dreams and premonitions she's alw [...]

    12. Martha Sweeney on said:

      3.5 Stars . . . The general concept of the story was very intriguing to me, especially since I've extensively studied the topics that are incorporated into the plot. There were some aspects that could have been developed further or expanded upon but were not, which would have caused a higher rating from me. I was really hoping to see this part of the story to be developed and cultivated into something more.The story flowed nicely, but there were many aspects that made me feel like I was in anoth [...]

      Roya has nightmares. Every night she drowns. Now she is having premonitions, not exactly normal for an introverted, teen who would rather read literary classics than risk one more embarrassment in front of her family, who have become like cruel strangers in her lonely world.Sure, teens often face an identity crisis, it is part of growing up, but for Roya, the answer to her question of,”Who am I?” is about to be answered in greater detail and deadly menace than she could ever imagine. For Roy [...]

    14. Rebekkah Koons on said:

      This is a book I have been wanting to read for awhile. I love anything to do with dreams, it's so fascinating how we can sleep and while we sleep, stories dance around in our head. First off, the cover is amazing, whoever picked it out made a brilliant decision. Once you read the whole book, the cover just really completes the whole story.Now, onto the good stuff and boy, was there good stuff!! Noffke touched on a great idea of dream traveling. I once toyed with the idea of something similar but [...]

    15. Marium on said:

      Received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.It was great story with a brilliant concept. Every detail, every setting, every scene was cleverly written and well constructed. Although I do feel like a lot of content was dedicated to Roya's love triangle and such like scenes which I just didn't like. I wish that we could have known more about the training and not drama that takes place in between. At times, she was just so slow at following things that were quite apparent [...]

    16. Chelsea on said:

      Dreams have always fascinated me so when I found out this book was about dream traveling I was hooked. I wish I didn't have to work otherwise I would have finished this book much faster then I did. I was constantly thinking about this book through out the day on what was going to happen. I loved the twists and turns and how much this book pulls you in. The characters are great. Each one is a little different but they all have different abilities that work great together. I am waiting for somethi [...]

      I haven't read young adult in a while, but from what I remember this book could almost serve as a blueprint for a good YA novel. You have a strong young female protagonist with mysterious powers as well as a mysterious past. You also have a few love interests she finds herself torn between.The science fiction elements were original, dealing with what goes on when people sleep and dream. Dreaming is a major theme of the book, as you have a group of almost X-Men like teens that have to battle a me [...]

      This is the first novel I've read by Sarah Noffke, and I'm anxiously waiting to read more!If you enjoy really getting into the mind and soul of a character, Sarah executes this flawlessly, with Roya Stark as the protagonist that takes you into the fascinating world of the "Lucidites".Being a fan of science fiction and fantasy, this novel doesn't disappoint. It's a fresh take on abilities that will have you wishing you could do what they do. The cast of characters will keep you entranced from beg [...]

      I love this book and recommend it to everybody! I love Roya! I love how she isn't perfect at everything, (like all of us) but she's still very very strong!! She's one of my favorite heroines! JOSEPH!!!! I love him! He's awesome and funny and one of my favorite characters! (view spoiler)[And Roya's is very lucky to have him as a brother! (hide spoiler)] He's also a very likeable character! AIDEN!! He's awesome! I agree with him about what's life without music (and he's so lucky to have a Fall Out [...]

      This review is also posted at Musings of the Bookaholic fairies, Inc.Thank you very much for the gifted copy in exchange for an honest review. ^____^First of all, this book was descriptively narrated, and honestly that helped me understand the events of the story. It's just beautifully described you'd think its happening at the back of your eyes. It's like you see what's on every character's mind and well it's just one of the strengths of this book. Though I would admit that the first few chapte [...]

      *This book was given to me by the author, free of charge, in exchange for an honest review.*First of all, the concept is fresh and amazing. Kind of like Inception but, y'knowt. It didn't start out the way I thought it would, which sort of slowed me down initially, but once I got into it, but was it an addictive read! Roya has a really interesting ability to simultaneously be a great heroine, someone for whom you really want to root, and then turn around and act like a sulking, sullen brat. It is [...]

      I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review :)Summary: Roya Stark never would have guessed that a bookworm outcast like herself would be thrown into a world of dream traveling, confusing teammates and the minor task of killing the creator of nightmares who has been terrorizing the world for centuries. As Roya gets thrown in the Institute with other Dream Travelers like herself, her perception of herself and the world begins to change. While enduring having the fate of t [...]

      "Entertaining listen"What made the experience of listening to Awoken the most enjoyable?There was enough twists/unknowns to the story to make you want to find out what is going to happen nextWhat other book might you compare Awoken to and why?This is my first book of this genre. But there are some main character similarities between Awoken and Hunger Games. Both have young female heros (Katnis & Roya) who have to get to the point of basically sacrificing themselves for the greater good. Both [...]

    25. Felisha Caldeira on said:

      Taking us into a new world view where dreams can be altered manually and people can travel through space and time, author Sara Noffke, does a fine job creating a new and unique young adult storyline. Although, the story jumps right into the middle of the 16 year old heroine, Roya Stark's, battle between "good and evil", which can see forced at times, it eventually fills in the back story as your engage the multiple layers of this novel. The only thing that I got snagged on was this 16 year old's [...]

      My brother, Dominic, recommended the book to me and I am really glad he did. I was pulled in from the beginning! First off I loved the story; it was really creative and well written. Sometimes you read a book and the idea is great but you don’t like the characters or it’s just poorly written. But Awoken was a great idea, the writing was really good and the characters were so alive it felt like you knew them. I really liked Roya, she was strong and independent but also human, she had her trou [...]
