Wake


Author: Amanda Hocking
Series: Watersong #1
Rating: 2 / 5 Stars
Verdict: Borrow

I went into this novel with pretty high expectations since I really enjoyed the Trylle trilogy. I knew Wake would be different, even though it was still a fantasy novel. And while the book was okay, it wasn't as good as I thought it could be. The relationships are rather cliche, as well as the teenage dialogue. A lot of the dialogue seems to fall flat and loose. While Hocking managed to create an amazingly unique world in the Trylle trilogy, the world of Wake falls into the physical, real realm, and Hocking's creativity seems to fizzle a little. I have higher hopes for the second novel in the series and am definitely going to give it a try, although I am still worried any the awkward and cliche dialogue between this set of teenagers.
