Goodreads Description:
A thrilling, futuristic sci-fi novel set in a unique and thought-provoking world, from author Shannon Duffy.

Desiree Six (because she was born on a Friday) believes in everything the Protectorate stands for. She likes the safety and security of having her entire life planned out—her career, her mate, even the date of her death. She doesn't even think to question when Darian, her childhood friend and neighbor, is convicted of murdering his parents. They had seemed like such a loving family. But if he was convicted, then he must have done it.

Then Darian shows up in her room late one night. He has escaped from the Terrorscape—a nightmare machine used to punish all Noncompliants—and needs Desiree's help. What he tells her rocks her world to its core and makes her doubt everything she's ever been told. With this new information, will Desiree and Darian be able to escape the Protectorate before it's too late?

Fallon's Review:
Thank you so much Entangled Teen for sending me a finished copy of Awakening by Shannon Duffy for review. This in no way effects my opinion or changes my review.

Desiree lives in a society of structure and order. No longer do nightmares or crime of any kind plague their world. Once they reach a certain age they are introduced to who their bound partner will be through the dreamscape every night for a year. She has been dreaming of this day until she realizes the boy she has been bound to is the boy who bullied her growing up.

Darian is one of the few non-compliants sent to the terrorscape for punishment of his crimes. His crimes were so severe he is to live out his life their. Or were they even his crimes? Darian escapes and is determined to shine light on what is really going on with the terrorscape and dreamscape. He wants justice.

Desiree and Darian once former friends lives soon become intertwined in this fast paced non-stop action dystopian. If you love Matched and Delirium then you will devour Awakening. Just when you think you have it all figured out you will be on you toes having to finish or you might find yourself in your own nightmares. I am giving Awakening 4 out of 5 stars and I can not wait to read Shannon Duffy's next book.
