Three years ago, Aspen (as she calls herself), woke up in an abandoned cabin without a single memory. Forced to start her life from scratch and exist entirely off the grid, she’s led a lonely life, but a quiet one... Until now. Suddenly, strange things are happening all around her: phantom tornadoes, exploding fireplaces, massive sink holes – not to mention the strange man that's been following her everywhere she goes.
When Aspen audits a college class for a much-needed dose of normalcy, she’s shocked by the assistant professor’s cold disdain for her, and her alone. Their heated confrontation turns a corner when Aspen panics, accidentally shattering every bulb in the classroom. That’s when Aiden realizes what she is... but he's not the only one who’s been paying attention.
In her mission to discover who – and what – she is, Aspen must learn to control her powers, navigate her budding feelings for this new and mysterious ally, and, finally, unearth the shocking truth about her past.

Great magic system, intriguing start
The Lighning Conjurer: the Awakening (book 1 in a trilogy) was such a fun ya fantasy that even the most mundane parts were entertaining and kept me reading.
We are introduced to Aspen who 3 years ago woke up in a cabin with no memory of who she is or how she got there. She doesn’t have any id, and she hasn’t received any mail since she woke up. Everything changes when she attends a lecture at a university.
Let’s start with Aspen. Aspen was such a great solid main character who had everything you want in a ya main character. She was fun, her inner dialogue quite intriguing and her secrets while being slowly revealed were so much fun to discover. Aiden was so easy to love as well. He was super supportive and although you’ll find yourself hating him at times, he’s such a perfect counterpart to Aspen. Evelyn is perfect. If there is such thing as having a book grandma, I am fully claiming her as mine!
The plot… this plot was captivating. It starts out so slow and snowballs into me wanting to rush into the next book immediately. The magic system in this book isn’t something we haven’t seen, but the actual powers themselves are so fascinating, and I can’t wait to know the actual depth of them.
This is a really fun and easy ya fantasy series and I honestly can’t wait for books 2 and 3. They are out now available in ebook and paperback on Amazon!
The supernatural story is very compelling and one you start reading you cannot stop. If you are a huge fan of fantasy, I highly recommend.
