Awakening the Trinity


Awakening the Trinity by Brittany Elise

In the seventeenth-century, an all-powerful witch called Rionach the Dark ruled the Celtic nations with an army of enslaved werewolves. In order to restore balance between Light and Dark, the Trinity of Light was summoned to vanquish the Dark Witch and end the Battle of the Dark Ages.

Seventeen-year-old Quinn Callaghan lives in the small, rustic town of Silver Mountain. Its location may be rural, but it is home to an ancient pine forest that surrounds a supernatural hotspot–a nexus of raw and powerful energy.

When a charismatic witch from Ireland, and a mysterious guy with a secret of his own are drawn to the area, Quinn finds out that she inherited her rare abilities from a revered ancestor. Could it be that she shares a bloodline with the Original Trinity? Nearly 300 years later, the Darkness is returning to Silver Mountain, and the Trinity must stop it.

About the Author

My love for writing began at a very young age–way before I could even type on a keyboard. I was always writing short stories and poems with a fan club of one (my mom.) I never stopped writing, but I don’t think I believed in myself enough to actually pursue it as a career. When I enrolled in college, I took as many creative writing classes as they offered, and ended up graduating with a degree in photography and minoring in English. I enjoy art in all its forms, but writing has always been my first love. Even when I was pursuing other careers, writing was always my go-to comfort. I later became an animal obedience instructor and met a children’s author through my dog training. She helped me get my foot through the door, so to speak, and I haven’t turned back since. During the day, I manage an FBO at my local hometown airport, and by night, I dive into my writing with my husband and my four-legged children by my side.

My Review

5 Stars

Quinn lives in the small town of Silver Mountain. Her mother told her that she is a witch but then tragically dies. But Quinn is doing pretty well with her father and her best friend, Annabelle. But then one day a stranger comes into her favorite coffee shop and makes her paranormal senses go wild. Quinn wants to know more about the brooding young man and why he sets her off. But Wren is just the first step in the battle with an ancient evil to come.

I loved this story. Quinn is so realistic, a great kid but has things she is working with like trying to control her abilities. Annabelle is a great friend and I felt bad when she had to stay behind to stay safe. Wren is the good looking stranger and I was afraid that there was going to be another insta-love thing going on but I was so happy when it didn’t happen.

This is a great YA paranormal/fantasy story and my first from Brittany Elise. I love the world building and how everything was coming together. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and see what Quinn and Wren get up to next. I can’t wait to read more from Brittany Elise.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to read and share this book.
