Title: Awakened Angel
This novella serves as a stepping stone into the Soul Savers series as it enters a whole new era. You don’t need to have read the previous books to understand and enjoy this one.
As matriarch of Earth’s Angels, Alexis Knight is charged with leading the world to recover and rebuild after being ravaged by human and supernatural wars. So far, the challenge hasn’t been too difficult as most of Earth’s inhabitants remain in underground bunkers. Alexis’s own community, The Loft, is in trouble. Their water source is drying up, so she and her elite team go to the surface to find a new one. But in a surprise attack by a new kind of legendary creature, Alexis loses her memory of who and what she is.
While her team scrambles to find the antidote to the black magic affecting her mind, Alexis makes new plans of her own. Until her memory returns, though, her abilities as a leader are questioned, especially when an outside group arrives to initiate a coup against her and her team.

Oh my gosh, where do I begin? For starters let me just say after reading Awakened Angel I realize I have I’ve fallen behind on my Soul Savers series. I started reading back in 2011 when I got my first Kindle and somewhere along the line, I drifted away but never forgot how much pleasure I got from reading about Alexis and Tristan. Really, I don’t know why I wandered because reading this novella brought back all the reasons why I fell in love with this series in the first place. I’ll get back to that in a sec.
The book starts out with Alexis waking up and not knowing who or what she is and who the people are around her. She doesn’t know if they are friend or foe, but she isn’t given any real choice and they take her back to their home. Everybody thinks her memory loss was caused by black magic and scramble to find an antidote. There she discovers who and what she is, that she’s a wife, mother and their leader…or at least that’s what they tell her she is. Because of her lack of memory, she is filled with doubts if she is truly the one they think she is. What I really enjoyed about the story is how her doubts of what she really was, matriarch of the Earth’s Angels, are presented. She has no memory and questions whether she really is a leader, something I’m sure she felt when she actually had her memories. Throw in a mini epic battle that ends just as you would expect it to with a HEA (For now!) and you have a kick ass story.
In its own unique way, I feel like Alexis. Having missed reading the last few books, I feel just as lost as she does. Some people I do remember but not how they are in the storyline now. I definitely have some catching up to do. I know the blurb states the previous books are not needed to understand what is going on and, up to a point, it’s true. If you’ve never read the series before, have no knowledge of Alexis and Tristan, the Amadis and Daemoni, all the excitement to be had, then yes you can jump in and read Awakened Angel not feeling like you are missing out. However, if you are like me, you’ll want to start from the beginning and devour each one of the books Kristie Cook has to offer. Now I’m off to fall in love with Alexis and Tristan all over again.
