In author Melanie Surani’s edgy thriller novel, opera singer Joshua Gray wakes in an eerie art museum exhibit. He comes to believe he’s been kidnapped and abandoned. And he isn’t the only one…
As Josh and four others struggle to piece together their new reality, they discover the museum’s main building has been razed and the place is boarded with no obvious exit. Who left them in the museum and why? How can they escape? The only link that binds them together is a mysterious woman named Blair, who they each encountered before blacking out. Josh unexpectedly finds himself drawn to one of the other captives, a long-time fan named Sophia. Their attraction plunges the group into a dark pool of suspicion. When allegiances shift and pieces connect, the strangers are forced to reassess their situation. Is the real danger inside or outside of the museum?
Suspenseful, romantic and filled with drama, Awake will keep you up all night.
So I won this book and by the title and cover I thought it would be really good. Now for me it started off pretty good but then I slowly lost interest. A group of people wake up in a museum with no knowledge on how they got there but with one connection someone named Blair. Who is this person and what does she want with them exactly? I never really understood the understanding of why these people were in a museum along with really not understanding the time line of the people missing.
It seems that everyone is connected in some way and there are secrets that no one wants out what will be the end game for all those involved?
Honestly the book was just really not for me like I thought it would be. There was just something missing that I can't put my finger on exactly. Now it is filled with mystery and drama give it a try and see what you think.
