My review of Awaited

Awaited (Wasteland #2) by Lynn Rush 
Release Date: May 1st, 2012
Goodreads |

A chilling sequel!

Awaited (Wasteland, #2)The voice is a powerful thing… 

Russell Leonard is a centuries-old Guardian who’s lost faith in his purpose. So when he’s charged with procuring the first female Guardian in over two centuries, he can only hope it’s the red-headed beauty who’s been haunting his dreams for months. And if it is, he intends to claim her as his. But when he finds his dream woman, Annabelle is mute and bears no Guardian’s Mark. 

He soon realizes she’s been tainted by an ancient evil. Russell must somehow release the secrets trapped within this delicate soul to help her tap into the only weapon powerful enough to silence a millennia-old demon—her voice.

Awaited is a stunning sequel that will send goosebumps down your spine. Lynn Rush has delivered a book that will blow your mind.

This book is told from the point of view of Russell! He was one of my favourite characters from Wasteland and I was really happy to find out that there would be a book about him. 

It all begins with a mission. Russell and his friend have been given the task of finding the next Guardian, but something goes wrong. Their plane crashes and they end up in the middle of no where. To complicate everything, they find a survivor.  A girl. A girl who Russell happens to have been dreaming about for the last 3 months. He feels a connection with her like he has with no other. Russell and his friend must find the Guardian before the demons discover their location.

I fell in love with the amazing plot line of this story and could not get in out of my head. I think that Awaited has much more interesting characters than Wasteland. And I thoroughly enjoyed their personalities.

Overall, Awaited is an incredible book about angels and demons that will leave you craving for more! 

- A special thanks to Diane and Lynn for sending me a review copy!


  1. I haven't heard of this series. Maybe because they would be too scary for me. Any blurb that contains the word "chilling" generally sends me running the opposite way! :) I love your review though.

  2. Thanks, SAM! I'm so glad you enjoyed the story. :) I love me some Guardian Russell for sure!!! Aimee. It's not too scary. I'm not too good with the scary either. LOL.

  3. Sam,Great review! Loved the turn of phrase ... chilling sequel. I loved Wasteland, first in the trilogy, but didn't find it scary, but indeed chilling. Can't wait to read Awaited. Way to go Lynn Rush!

    I love male POVs. Such a great way to approach everything. I haven't read the first book but he sounds so conflicted which is great:)

    1. Thanks, Christina. Writing the male POV in a romance was a challenge, but I LOVE David's character (Wasteland). :) He was super fun to write. And Russell, in book two (Awaited) I must admit...he was even more fun **shhhh, don't tell David I said that** LOL Happy Reading!

  5. Wow. This sounds kinda great! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Wow! New series for me. Thanks for the review, excuse me while I dash off to add to my wishlist.

  7. This is a new series for me also. It sounds great though. Thanks for the review. I like reading from the male POV and I like the cover.

  8. i love reading angels and demon and i love the part about russel dreaming about a girl the last 3 months, it's just like a sign. so curious :)
