What other readers' are saying about Awakened Horror
An exhilarating sci-fi thriller exploring good and evil on a galactic scale, Awakened Horror is a twisted and expansive sci-fi novel with a cast of compelling and conflicted heroes.
An unpredictable and dialogue-driven adventure of stellar battles and inner demons, this second installment of The Forgotten Saga has echoes of other space operas, but it stands apart for its surprising twists, well-drawn action, and complex characters.
Author Quill Holland's storytelling is intense and immersive, and the character development is exceptional in a tale that balances the impending doom of the big picture with a deeper, more emotive character story at its core. The themes of sacrifice, unity, and the consequences of one's choices are explored in a thought-provoking way, so much so that it really leaves you thinking about your own deepest fears long after you’ve put the novel down. I found it to be a compelling and suspenseful tale that will leave readers eagerly anticipating the next installment in The Forgotten Saga.
An impressive feat — Awakened Horror is a gripping story of pain and justice ... an inventive exploration of the manifestations of trauma. Holland superbly underscores a conundrum of trauma and consequences: how does one atone for one’s mistakes without succumbing to the terror that begets them in the first place? Awakened Horror is Dantean in this process of retribution.
Awakened Horror highlights the importance of self-reflection and what it means to contend with the consequences of one’s actions. Even when plagued by the lasting effects of trauma, retribution is possible.
