    1 thought on “The Dawning

    1. The Dawning by Judy Griffith Gill is an Open Road Integrated Media publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. "The Talents who escaped detection were discovered by the other Talents, were slipped to safety in one of the many Folds where they were nurtured and trained in the development, control, and concealment of their extra sensory abilities. While the Free Talents' numbers were increasing, they were still, in this year of 2 [...]

    2. I am a huge science fiction and fantasy fan, and, oh yes, let's not forget historical romances, so I looked forward to this read, a futuristic romance. Whilst the storyline is interesting in some ways, it is just too familiar for me to become enthusiastic about. It is typically post apocalyptic, in this case a post biohazard war dystopian event, where Talented persons (with psi abilities), changed by the bio chemical fallout are being pursued, routed out, culled or subverted by Normals.I must sa [...]

    3. I'm used to my dystopian novels falling into the YA category. This is the first book from that genre that fell into the adult realm and it left me wanting more, but not necessarily more of the book.I felt like I was jumping into a series at the second book. The backstory of Serena and Andrew was so powerful that it felt like there was another story before this one that explained away their past better than this story did.The book reminded me quite a bit of Laura Bickle's The Hallowed Ones, becau [...]

    4. I'm not a big sci-fi reader. The Hunger Games trilogy makes up the majority of my dystopia reading to date. So I was rather happy when the Retro Readers peeps chose a post-apocalyptic sci-fi romance to ring in the new year. I like to read outside my comfort zone now and then, but I have to be nudged to do so. Howeverif you're the same, I'm not sure this one is going to make you a believer.In The Dawning, Serena and Andrew are survivors of biological warfare that has probably wiped out most of th [...]

    5. This was an interesting read. There were parts of it that I really enjoyed, but other parts that totally frustrated me. I thought that the ending was a little anti-climactic. I also felt that the plot was reasonably predictable, when you understood the rules of society that defined the world at that time.I thought that this book was quite Orwellian in outlook, as many dystopian novels are apt to be. It is always interesting to see another person’s perception of how the future could be, and wit [...]

    6. This was a difficult book for me to judge. In the beginning I found myself a little confused by who everyone was, especially the various organisations of people. The book has a relatively slow start. There are a few interesting happenings early on, but the events are not fleshed out until you are well into the story. Because of the heavy back story revolving around the lives of the two main characters, there were times when I wondered whether this was a standalone book or if I had accidentally h [...]

    7. I rather liked this one, provided by the publisher through netgalley. It's the sort of thing I usually read. I'm more into romance or history, but this wove a really intriguing dystopian future into a compelling thriller, combined with some solid characters, which, despite their gifts, are pretty normal people.The romance between the hero and heroine really takes a backseat in this story. It's all about their journey as they try to save themselves and an abandoned baby. Any romantic interludes w [...]

    8. In a post-cataclysmic, future Earth, a second confrontation is building amongst the survivors. The Talents, those born with psi or psychic abilities are being hunted by the Normals who fear and hate them For the entire review please go to the Best Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Review site on the web, Bitten By Books for the review of The Dawning in it's entirety. You won't be sorry.

    9. 2.5 stars. The Dawning was much more romance than sci-fi. The entire time that i read the book, I kept feeling like I was missing something. I didn't fell like there was very much world building. I found myself skimming in parts.

    10. I really enjoyed this book. The author has a fantastic imagination and made her world believable. Loved the characters, especially the child. This is not a book you can skim, as attention to detail is important to get the full impact.
