Publisher's Summary

The Awakening is a tale of immortals, ancient gods, and a Detective who doesn't believe in any of it. Detective Ben Stanford is forced to come face to face with theology, mythos and everything he refused to believe in as his world is turned upside down by Mark, the immortal Gospel writer, who requests the detective's help in finding his missing companion, Judas Iscariot.
As Ben dives deeper into the world of broken Theology, ancient religions and terrifying Greek gods, he's forced to come to terms with the world where vast forces struggle in their endless game of power. He must make his way, with the help of companions he doesn't believe in or trust, to try and stop a potential global disaster.

A good book to read, and an enjoyable listen!

This is a combination review; first part of the review is based on the story, which I read first, the second part is based on the audible book.

Story review:
I enjoyed reading this book SO MUCH. I love conspiracy theories and stories that involve any type of theology. Reinterpretations of religious history, reinterpretations of the bible, I enjoy the heck out of them. I was raised Catholic and still call myself a Catholic, and I have always interpreted the Bible as written by man and completely symbolic in nature (I in no way have ever believed the world was created in 7 days - literal bible interpretations drive me bonkers).

The twists and turns and the combinations of different theological beliefs was fascinating. You can tell Angela really did her research for the book. And I love her interpretations of world religions and ancient gods. There was a teasing amount of background story, but it keeps you guessing and gives wonderful anticipation for the next installment. There is action and mystery, and I spent the entire book angry at Ben. That's probably because I'm a believer in the supernatural myself. I cannot wait until the next book in the series!

Do yourself a favor, and get lost in the pages of this book!

Audible Review:
I have now gotten through this book a second time, this time as an audio book, so this part of my review is based on the audio book only.

I still enjoyed the story very much, and the review of the story remains the same. As an audio book, it was very enjoyable. The narrator had a very expressive reading voice, and very individual and distinct voices for each person. The voices weren't as I imagined them, but they fit the characters nicely, and I really really ended up hating Abby, who I don't remember being so bothered about in the first place.

Worth a listen, as it was worth the read!

I enjoyed this book, a different spin on history of the subject. I don't recommend for the Christian at heart. I'm a Christian and still enjoyed the book.. I look forward to upcoming audible books in this series.
