Shifter Liam Doyle knows Hell. At least he believed he did. The night he feels his mate die, he learns how very wrong he was. Nothing he’d struggled with since Ava’s rejection compares to the emptiness that fills his soul by her death. Lost in his grief, he’s taken by surprise and drugged. When he wakes, everything changes. Nothing is what it seems, and someone is dead set on making him pay.

When Ava Michaels is taken captive, she’s thrust into a dark and terrifying world along with the man she was forced to leave behind. While being near Liam again is heartbreaking, the motive behind her kidnapping is gradually revealed. The more she learns, the more she worries Liam isn’t the man she believed him to be. He has enemies willing to do anything to extract their revenge. Can their love survive a crazy man’s vengeance?

Praise

"I found The Awakening: Liam to be a more action filled, engaging story that isn't just about a shifter and his mate. There is substance in the novel that brings forth mystery and suspense along with shocking turns of events. I was completely drawn into this novel, almost unwilling to stop reading at any point. I needed to know who the kidnapper was, what was behind his/her reasoning(s) to mess with a shifter and his unbonded mate, and if, indeed, Liam and Ava truly received their happily ever after."- Saph's Steamy Books

I was provided a copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.

This is the second book in the Awakening series by Abby Niles. This book features Liam and his mate, Ava. Liam was in the first book, Aidan's book, but this book was written to be a stand alone if necessary. I knew there was a f... ...more

By Trish August 26, 2013

I am a fan of Abby Niles and her unique shifter world. After reading the first book of the series, Aidan, I knew I wanted to follow up with book two.

Liam was seen in the first book and has been rejected by the woman that he loves--his mate--Ava. Most men would typically mutter a "Screw you" and g... ...more

FAIRY THOUGHTS
Favorite Line(s) “Glorious warmth spread to his extremities, burning away the darkness, until the lightness that was Ava reclaimed every recess of his body and soul”

“I tried to explain that to you last night. She gives me peace,”

“All we have is right now. I can’t promise more.”

“I lo... ...more

Please note that there may be some Book 1 spoilers in this review. Proceed with caution!

When Liam Doyle's unbonded mate rejects him (we first learned this in Book 1 - it set the stage for Aidan to meet his mate), the rejection tosses him into and unhappiness like no other. He is in Hell and no am... ...more

This is my second Abby Niles book and let me tell you I am seriously in LOVE.. The Awakening Series is just what a shifter series should be, Dark, Deadly, Dangerous, (I know again with the alliteration). This book literally seethes.. it pulses with Desire..

In Awakening Aidan, we discover what ha... ...more

Ava and Liams story. This story was really well written and had me hooked very quickly.

We start off with Liam waking up gasping realising that he is feeling Ava's panic and clawing at himself not to go into her emotions and being stuck. It is only when he wins that he notices that something is wr... ...more

4 Stars!

I didn’t read the first book in the series so I didn’t know what to expect of this. I was actually not expecting much to be honest.

But… I was wrong!!

This book was so much better than I thought it would be. You don’t have to read the first book to understan... ...more

Liam Doyle is a shifter. He found his mate in Ava Michaels, but after six months of dating, she abruptly breaks up with him. She offers no reason.

Once a shifter finds his mate, he becomes bonded with her. Liam can feel all of Ava's emotions. When Ava left him, Liam became debilitated with a condi... ...more

By Shelly September 23, 2013

I'm not sure I could be any happier after reading Liam's story. If you've read Niles first story in the series about Aidan, then you'll be familiar with Liam and his struggles. Don't worry though because the way Niles wrote this you don't have to read the first book to get the maximum enjoyment;... ...more

The Awakening: Liam. Abby Niles.

ARC supplied by publisher.
I'd read and enjoyed the first in this series, Aiden's story so was keen to review this one. We met Liam in the first book, where he was deep in a state of grief as his Mate had rejected him. It's a lot to take on though as a human, being... ...more

By Tory September 02, 2013

For the most part, I liked this book. Let me get out what I didn’t like and then I’ll go into the many reasons I did like this book. First: the villain behind it. Up until they found out who was responsible, there was almost no clue as to his identity. Yes, in retrospect, the incident is mentione... ...more

By Donna August 31, 2013

This was the second book in The Awakening series. However, it is not necessary to read them in order. They are each their own complete stories. Also if you hold a grudge against a character, reading Aidan's story first might make it harder for you to like Ava in this one. I really had my doubts a... ...more

By Christi September 19, 2013

My Review:
This is the second book in the series and it was just as good as the first. Liam is a shifter that we met in the first book who was Dserted by his mate. In this world, for shifter males, this is a fate pretty much worse than death. It leads to depression, complete separation from their... ...more

By Pam September 03, 2013

Liam was rejected by his mate and thought nothing could top that low. He is wrong when he feels her die he feels like he has as well. He goes to her and in his grief is caught unaware and drugged. When he wakes he is in a whole new kind of hell. His mate is still alive but he finds himself trying... ...more

By Eva August 26, 2013

The second book in The Awakening series is an intriguing and entertaining read full of suspense, love, and discovery.

The author’s version of a shifter genre is a well thought out and engaging world that will keep the reader coming back for more. It has all the elements of a great series; love and... ...more

The Awakening: Liam by Abby Niles got my attention right away with her dedication. I knew I would like the book if for no other reason than her sense of humor - "to Rum and Coke".. Even if those were her pet ferrets, I was in! Turns out the book was FANTASTIC. I didn't need her cutesy dedication,... ...more

By Niccisbookblog September 17, 2013

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I did not read The Awakening, Book 1 prior to picking this book up, but I don't think it really hindered my enjoyment of this one. We jump right into the action from the start and get enough information along the way to properly accl... ...more

This is the first book that I’ve read by Abby Niles and it will not be the last. It’s a great paranormal romance that includes a very interesting mystery that kept me consumed until the very end.

Liam lost the love of his life, and as a shifter, his mate eight months ago, and life has meant nothi... ...more

By Crystal August 20, 2013

I read the first book in this series and I had to read this one when I got the chance.

You get a little taste of Liam Doyle in the first book. What you read about Ava Michaels makes her sound really cruel to put Liam through what she does. I wondered how in the world she could love him but make hi... ...more

This has been an amazing series so far! This book starts right off with so much action that there was no way for me to put it down.

About the author

Abby Niles

Ever since Abby Niles picked up her first Sweet Valley High book in sixth grade and fell in love with Elizabeth and Todd, sheÂ’s been hooked on romance. By the time she reached high school, she was devouring meatier romances with pirates, cowboys and knights. She never imagined that those years of reading would one day lead to her becoming a published author. In her late twenties, after having twins and becoming a stay-at-home mom, she started doodling stories to keep her sanity. Next thing she knew, she was actually submitting to publishing houses. And was immediately rejected. That didnÂ’t stop her though. She found some kickass critique partners, honed her craft, and continued submitting. And eventually sold. Today, she juggles work, being a single mom, and writing. ItÂ’s not always easy, but hey, who said life was easy? Abby is the author of the contemporary MMA Love to the Extreme series. Extreme Love and Fighting Love are available in both digital and print. Winning Love is scheduled for August 2014. She is also the author of the dark paranormal romance series The Awakening: Aidan, The Awakening: Liam,and The Awakening: Britton. Both series are with Entangled Publishing.
