Twilight and The Vampire Diaries fans will love this series!

Mercy knows what true pain is - she’s lived with it since her high school graduation when someone drove a knife into her chest. She’s taken comfort in knowing they're locked away, but now, months later, a new threat lurks in the shadows - a stalker - and he’s watching her every move.

As she nears her 18th birthday, a series of strange events lead Mercy to discovery of a long-held dark secret that shakes her conscience and stirs a magic inside her. Her body heals at unnatural speed, and a power ignites at her fingertips. She has no idea what’s happening until a mysterious stranger, Caleb, comes into town, and reveals to Mercy a past-life she can’t remember - she’s an ancient witch, vampires are real, and she is destined to destroy them.

As Caleb teaches Mercy how to harness her magic, a plan unfolds within Salem’s most powerful vampire clan - and their leader, Maurice - is coming for her.

Mercy must fight to survive and release the dark power she was born with. Because to slay a monster, she must become a monster.

The Chosen Coven Trilogy

The Dark Awakening - A Paranormal Vampire Series (The Chosen Coven, Book 1) Is a young adult paranormal romance swirling with mystery and suspense. I love the story and the writing as I was drawn in right from the beginning. The writing style is captivating and I enjoyed how it was arranged with the history, present and future. Well developed characters that are compelling with complex personalities. As well as detailed world building descriptions and settings. A array of supernatural characters including vampires, witches, werewolves, and demons. A original storyline with a complex plot, a morsel of romance, alluring characters and a epic ending. With unexpected plot twists intricately entwined into the narrative creating a euphoria effect. This has all the elements to keep me engaged. Looking forward to reading the next novel in this spellbinding series. A absolute must read/listen. Looking forward to listening to the next audio in this mystical series.


Narrator Sarah Lynn's inflection is smooth and easy listening. Each character was given their own voice. Her tone is engaging and I could listen all day long.

A highly entertaining listen with a wonderful narrator and riveting plot.

New take on witches, werewolves and vampires

I really loved the new take on the paranormal. Witches who were created to take down vampires, vampires created by good and evil, werewolves allies of witches. This narrator did a good job with this book and I look forward to finishing off the series. I have to know what happens to Mercy and the rest of her Coven.

Wow. Fast-paced and action-packed

The story was engaging and kept me glued until the very last chapter. Mercy discovers she's a witch before her 18th birthday. When a stranger comes into town and reveals a shocking secret, and she will need to learn to trust Caleb and venture into the unknown. Meanwhile, a stalker lurks in the shadows, and a vampire clan is out to destroy her. This story is filled with suspense, romance, friendship and a twist I did not see coming.

Sarah Lynn was also a fantastic addition to this story. Her narration hooked me from the start. I loved her character voices and everything flowed perfectly. I never got tired of listening to her voice and the engaging story D.L Blade created. I can't wait to dive into the next book in the series.

Witches, wolves and vampires oh my!! Lol

I really enjoyed this book. Once I started it I couldn’t stop and finished it and started the 2nd one in one day. The story flowed and was well written. It really pulls you in. Sarah did a good job on the narration. I did receive the first one in exchange for my honest review but, I gladly purchased the second one with a credit..;-). Can’t wait to see where it takes us.

This book slayed! *pun intended

I absolutely love this trilogy and the second addition just added to that! This book keeps the suspense from the very first line to the last sentence. The prolog immediately had me hooked. D.L. Blade has truly found her calling. It was an excellent narration with fun sound effects. I had never read a paranormal book before this series and now I’m hooked! Highly recommend!
