They claim she is immortal.
They say he is her equal, an immortal who can match her power.
But she’s just a normal girl.
Until she isn’t.

Allie Carmichael is just your run of the mill, socially awkward redhead with a smart-mouth that gets her into trouble—which it does the morning she literally runs into Aidan McBrien. Her new next door neighbor.
She’s drawn to Aidan in a way she can’t explain. For the first time in her life someone actually gets her.
And then everything Allie thought she knew about herself falls apart.
As a latent immortal power awakens deep inside her, and her first gifts begin to emerge, Allie must learn to adapt to her power before it overwhelms her. But she’s years behind her immortal peers, with precious little time to catch up.

They say it is time to put her mortal life behind her, but she still feels like the normal girl she always thought she was.

But there is nothing normal about Allie Carmichael.

Emerge by Melissa A. Craven is the first book in her series Immortals of Indriell and is a fast-paced adventure I couldn’t put down! Allie Carmichael’s life is about to change forever when her parents move across the globe in the middle of the night. Arriving in a small town in Ohio, Allie never expects to find people who understand her even when she doesn’t understand herself. Emerge follows Allie’s transformation from mortal to immortal and will leave you begging for more.

What I Enjoyed
I love the cast of characters! It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book with so many different characters. While Allie is the main character, there is an entire family of characters waiting for her in Ohio. Each one has his/her own quality that helps you keep them straight, but I’ll admit it took me well over half the book before I was able to do so without flipping back pages. My favorite character (aside from our two main) is Liam. He shows up midway through so I won’t spoil anything, just know that I love him.

Allie is a force to be reckoned with! She’s more than a little lost when we first meet her. Upset about their move and feeling like an outsider, she keeps to herself, or tries too. Allie is fiery, but also fiercely loyal to those she considers friends, something she’s never really been able to say she has. Now that she does, she has to learn to adapt. But that isn’t the only thing she has to adapt too. She has the strange new power lurking inside, ready to burst out, and when it does, Allie’s friends will be the ones with all the answers.

Then there is Aiden. I adore this boy! He is the first person Allie meets in Ohio, and he is also the first person to not flinch when she touches them. Allie finds herself drawn to him, and he seems to be just as fascinated with her. Aiden is a complex character, portraying himself as the classic playboy/jock at school, but showing a softer side to Allie and his real friends. Like Allie, I was drawn to Aiden and found myself falling for the shy guy he truly is.

What Left Me Wanting More
While I love the immersive nature of the story, I needed more. More details, more descriptors, more words, just more. There is little transition between scenes, which led to confusion on my part. Multiple times I thought I’d skipped a page when in reality the story shifted to the next scene without a transition. This made for a choppy read at times, especially in the beginning of the book. As the story progresses and the pace picks up speed, the transitions become seamless.

Another aspect that distracted from the story for me is the narration. It is told in a limited 3rd person, mostly focusing the story on Allie and her experiences. However I really struggled following the narrator in the beginning. Some of this is due to the transitions I mentioned earlier, but mostly this is related to a “tell” rather than “show” method. There may be a technical term for this, but I don’t know it so let me explain. For example, instead of showing through the characters’ interactions that Aiden and Allie are drawn to one another, the narrator tells us Allie feels a connection to him. This is a personal preference for me as I tend to read mostly first person narration. Once I got used to the writing style though, I flew through the book.

Final Thoughts
Overall I really enjoyed Emerge. Craven has created a unique world with her Immortals, and I cannot wait to read more! True to the title, the story follows Allie as she awakens as an Immortal. I loved learning about this new world with her. The awe-inspiring abilities that come with her immortality leads me to believe that as the series progresses we are in for a real adventure. Emerge encompasses everything I love about urban fantasy and combines it with a hint of romance and a dash of action. I highly recommend it for anyone that enjoys the genres.

Summary

Allie was never really normal. For some reason, everyone seemed to recoil at her touch. Her parent’s job has caused her to move constantly. They finally settle in Ohio where Allie meets friends who immediately take her in and don’t recoil at her touch. On her 16th birthday, she finds out way. Allie is immortal. She awakens into her power and a world she never knew existed. Her friends and their family take her into their protection and guidance to teach Allie a life she was not ready for. Allie’s power is very strong in an immortal so young. She finds Aidan has an equal in the measurement of power. Their equal power attracts them to each other. This attraction will either strengthen or ruin their relationship. Allie learns about the about the Immortal’s history through stories of her friend’s parents. In these lessons, she is told about a group called the Coalition. The Coalition is a group of mortals and Immortals who use the most advanced technology to obtain their goal. Their main goal was to eradicate the Immortals, but now they want to use them. Since Allie’s gift is so strong, she is told that they will come for her at some point. She must know learn how to defend herself through various weapon and self defense training. Allie must now learn how to balance an immortal life and a normal 16-year-old life.


Feedback

Emerge: The Awakening by Melissa A. Craven definitely has a unique story. The beginning of the story starts off with Allie being told that her family is moving again. We get to see a little bit of the recoil Allie experiences by other people. Once she arrives in Ohio she immediately finds people who connect with her. Finally, her 16th birthday arrives and she experiences her awakening. After her awakening, her life is now full of history lessons of the Immortals and self-defense training. During her training she learns a lot about each parent and how long they’ve truly lived. While her life is dramatically changing she is trying to keep some sort of normalcy. She dates a mortal while trying to control her closeness to Aidan. There were interesting aspects of this book, however, I felt like the pacing was too sporadic. While I know Allie feels an immediate connections to the others, I had a hard time with the beginning because of how fast everything moved. We learn that she always had a hard time connecting with other people but she doesn’t really question why these relationships were easy. Even tough learning about each Immortal is interesting, I found this part to be slower. I had a hard time getting through the middle, especially because the pacing was so fast during the beginning. Once the ending of the book is reached, the story has the perfect pace. I thoroughly enjoyed the end of this book and found myself wanting more at the end.

Emerge: The Awakening consists of multiple personalities. Allie is a fiery redhead who uses sarcasm as a cover. While I really enjoyed Allie, there were times I couldn’t really relate to her. I felt like my main issue with Allie was her unwillingness to accept the Immortal life at first. While I couldn’t imagine what I would do if I were her instead, I do think there would be more acceptance. At first she doesn’t really take her new life seriously. Towards the end of the book she does start accepting who she is and that this is now her life. She does try to keep her life as normal as possible causing some conflict with Aidan. Aidan puts on a “mask” of a cocky jock as a means of being accepted. After meeting Allie, Aidan finally feels like he can be himself with someone who is his equal. You really learn a lot about Aidan with his actions towards Allie and I felt like Allie should have accepted him more. She continually tries to reject certain aspects of Aidan that should have been embraced instead. All of the other characters were really easy to understand and interpret their importance. I feel like the biggest struggle was Allie and Aidan’s relationship.


Final Thoughts

Emerge: The Awakening by Melissa A. Craven is an interesting read. I really enjoyed the twist on being an immortal that was created While I found the pacing in this book difficult to follow, the content did hold my interest. The stories of each Immortal really did bring an understanding of their lives. I also loved the ending of this book. I was a little worried because I really wanted to like this book but was having a hard time in the beginning and middle. Once I reached the end, I could not put the story down. I am anticipating to continue this story after reading finishing the first book. I recommend this book to those who love mixing history with fantasy. If you find the pacing of the book to be difficult to follow as I did, I highly recommend continuing as the ending is amazing.

Emerge: The Awakening is an impressive story by Melissa A. Craven and I can't wait to read the second book. The entire premise is intriguing. The concept of immortals, their origins, and what happens when they live amongst mortal humans had me hooked from the start.

I love Allie. She is a strong female lead who isn't perfect. Even though she lives in a world where fantasy and reality is blurred, she is a realistic character. Super strong some moments, unsure and vulnerable the next.

Melissa A. Craven is fantastic at world building and creating strong origin stories for her characters. While at times it did slow the pace of the action, I liked learning more about where the characters came from and what helped shaped the way they are now. I can't help but feel that somehow this stories will connect to an even bigger picture. It also helped vary the pacing of the novel. There are some plot twists and the story moves quickly, the origin stories within the story helped me slow down and fully understand the world Allie finds herself in.

This is one Indie book that should be on every YA shelf. Pick it up and pick up the second book as soon as you can. It is a fun read and it won't disappoint.
Good Points
Intriguing
A book you can't put down

I was hooked from the first page an unwilling to put this book down. Its an innovative and unique story with loveable characters.

Allie is such a strong female lead and I loved that she didn't need a man to define her or her abilities, as a matter of fact romance was not even really a factor in this story which is really really refreshing. Sure, there are love interests but that does not make pr break the story. I really can not find enoug words to describe how utterly awesome this story was!

I'm really happy I had the opportunity to read and review this book and I am anxiously awaiting book 2 in the series. Unfortunately, I could find no info on the release of that novel or even a working title so sadly I in the dark completely BUT based off of the 2 I have read, I have high hope for the sequel. If you are looking for a great read with strong and loyal character that you will most probably fall in love with, then look no further! Emerge: The Awakening is an action packed, emotionally driven story that is sure to draw you in.

“I received a free copy of the book from the author/publisher for my honest opinion. I was in no way compensated for this review and all opinions are expressly my own”
Good Points
Allie. Like I said, Allie is a super strong and feisty character. I loved her tenacity.

Aiden. He's adorably jaded and such an amazing character.

Sasha. I loved Sasha. She wasn't a character that was mentioned a lot but I really loved when she interacted with the other leads!

Other Supporting Characters. I really enjoyed the interactions between the other supporting characters just like I enjoyed Sasha's character. It was really fun to learn about these characters and what made them tick.

Bonds. I loved all the bonds formed between characters, superficial or otherwise. The inclusion of these 'supernatural' bonds that are formed between individuals was also another major selling point for me.

Storyline. This story line is in a league of its own. Never once did I feel like I was reading a world I had already visited. I loved all the intricacies that make up this story and all the character story lines.

History. The history of these characters is astounding. I've always been a bit of a history junkie so I got a massive kick at the inclusion of these great figure heads in history being included in the history of this book. I also really like how these characters shared their history with others.

Fifteen-year-old Allie isn't exactly a social butterfly, but then her parents move every few months and for some reason, people don't like to be around her. When she finally does find a boyfriend who accepts her (although he still flinches at her touch), her parent's move suddenly again, this time for good.

First, I enjoyed this story. The more I read it, the more I fell into Allie's world and by the end, I couldn't put it down and ended up staying up much too late into the night. However, the first chapter or so was a little rough to get through. The first scenes are okay--we see Allie at a bonfire with her boyfriend, shunned by his friends. It wasn't clear to me why the others saw her as weird...but then she doesn't know herself. Which was odd (most of the story through). I missed something solid during this first part to prove this--to hold on to because it kind of flapped out there as an 'accept it, it is so.' And the sudden move of the parents was too quick as well as the reactions.

But the rest of the story grew on me. And now, I can't wait to get my hands on book two.

Allie is awesome. A little difficult to grasp at first and sulky, but as the pieces fall together, so does she. It takes awhile to know exactly what's going on with her and those around her, but the author does a great job of letting us feel our way through the uncertainty with her. There are times where I didn't understand Allie's sudden reactions, but this could be hacked up to her coping with her abilities, I guess. Allie's special-ness isn't something she embraces right away (but she's not completely sure what she's embracing). This hesitation and her need to cling to normal life seems very realistic.

The pace in this story is great. I did wonder when the 'evil' guys would get involved, but until they did, the author kept the action running. Allie doesn't get much sleep, and neither did I as a reader. There are a few moments which slow down as the information concerning other character's pasts and the history of their people is brought to light. But I like the way these small dumps were done--as a story time, making the history itself into a mini-adventure. There are some logic holes in the powers and how this all works, but I was willing to slide over them and cheer for Allie as she learned to accept the new her.

I really enjoyed the character depth, not only with Allie, but the others as well. Allie's falling into a big family, which loves her and immediately accepts her as their own. They are all willing to give their life for each other, and learning their histories made it easier to understand this devotion. Allie learns to love them, and so did I, the reader.

Summed up, this is a fast-paced, fun read, and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book and see where Allie and her friends are headed.
Good Points
Lots of character depth even with side characters. The action has a nice pace, and there are several unexpected twists and turns

In Emerge: The Awakening, we meet Allie, a diminutive teenage girl with fiery red hair and a snarky attitude. She has been on the run, moving from place to place, her entire life, and she's had nary a clue as to why.

But that changes when she meets Aidan, a handsome boy who explains to her that she is an Immortal, a being of incredible untapped power who is about to undergo a change that will transform her life completely.

A fantastic premise, to be sure, and I dove right into the story, which caught my attention with its great characters and dialogue. Allie is wonderfully snarky, which I love, and the interplay between Allie and Aidan was the highlight of the book.

The reason I could not give this book five stars was because, in my opinion, there were time when I felt that there was too much dialogue and not enough exposition. There were many flashbacks, and there were many, many characters (too many to keep track of), and there were a couple of times when I found myself a little lost.

This is a fantastic book, and definitely worth reading. My advice: don't get caught up trying to remember all the characters. Just focus on Allie and Aidan and a few other main characters, and you'll be fine.

Can't wait to see what happens to Allie next. Well done, Ms. Craven!

This story reminded me a lot of a superhero origins story... it has that same feel of an ordinary person learning to cope with extraordinary events and abilities. The main character is sympathetic and lovable and the supporting characters are very engaging as well. Craven's world-building is well done and helps you see how this storyline fits within the world we know. As the book ends you're left knowing that things are just getting started and the story will just get more tangled and exciting. I'm anxiously awaiting the next installment.

Wow, what an entertaining read!

Allie and Aidan have had very different upbringings but have always lived with a similar sense of isolation and loneliness. Allie has always just believed people thought she was weird- that she was just your average outcast. Aidan knew the truth. They each had an immense amount of power that people could sense. He was surrounded by people that loved him but he still always felt alone.

All of this changed when Allie's family moved to Kelley's island, bringing Aidan and his odd group of family and friends into her life. It isn't until Allie's sixteenth birthday that she finds how like all of them she really is.

They are all part of an ancient race that both gives them certain powers and also puts them in danger.

How do you still live your mortal life when you are becoming so much more?

I think Allie is now one of my favorite fictional women. She is strong, sarcastic, and witty but also soft and caring. This isn't an easy balance- many strong characters are portrayed as hard. It's a testament to the writing.

The writing itself is witty and clever. I can't count the number of times I laughed out loud at the exchanges between Allie and Aidan.

The only issue I had was the huge amount of backstory. I'm sure it'll come in handy in the next two books but, in this one, it took me out of the action and I found myself getting bored on a number of occasions.

To the books credit, the other parts had me going to the point where I was staying up late because I couldn't stop reading and then I couldn't sleep because I was thinking about Allie and Aidan and the things they had just said. I'm looking forward to a more action packed book two!

I had one quibble only. Though we were given many explanations for Lex making her choice of love-interest, I kept looking for something more to explain why she didn't choose the other guy. In places it seemed this story strand was purposely drawn out - I put this down to my impatience in general :)
Get Emerge and you are assured of a professional copy, a great story, an addiction to Melissa A. Craven's writing, and frustration at the wait before book two is out! Get it now!
Good Points
This is a riveting start to The Awakening series. I loved how relatable the main character was. She made mistakes! That never seems to happen in YA anymore. The storyline was well-developed, with depth to provide dimension and authenticity to the plot. The setting was a favorite point too. A fantasy world layered over the world we live in. And New Zealand was mentioned like three times (woohoo!) In my opinion this always makes for an exciting read. It draws the reader that one step closer to believing we could be in the novel as well!

This is self published? No way. I wouldn't believe it if the author hadn't sent me a copy. It in no way feels self published. Everything flows perfectly and the characters are authentic. I also love how this is such an original novel. It never gave me the vibe that some books do. Never once when reading did I stop and think, this kind of reminds me of (whichever book insert here). I also love how it's set in Ohio as I used to live there and miss it a lot.

Allie, our main character is awesome. She feels real and she's very strong. I love that more YA is starting to have strong female characters. We need them and I just love reading about them! I also love the romance in Emerge. It's not rushed to me nor does it feel like insta-love. I enjoyed the world building and there is a lot in the beginning. So if you don't like slow beginnings then don't get this book. I didn't mind, I actually like it. Let's me get a feel for everything before jumping into the action.

I love the urban feeling and just how real it feels. This author made superpowers as real as they could seem and it worked perfectly. I could see it happening in the real world. Bottom line, get this book. It's amazing and worthy of your time. Warning though... you might get obsessed.
Good Points
1) Original, like nothing I've ever read before!
2) Allie (the main character), is very strong and someone good to look up to.

Emerge – The Awakening by Melissa A. Craven is a novel that follows the life of Alexis Carmichael, a girl who perhaps seems normal on the outside, yet is anything but on the inside. Allie has always known she was different, but she also thought she was the only one. She is proved wrong when she literally stumbles across a boy named Aidan. Aidan and his family have supernatural powers and, as she soon discovers, Allie does too. However, as the famous saying goes, with great power comes great responsibility. Because of this power, Allie is a threat to others, meaning others are a threat to her. Thrust into a world where she is made to accept her new life, undergo hardcore training to ensure her safety, whilst amidst complex boy troubles even she cannot wholly understand - will this prove too much for Allie, or will she learn to accept what she now is before it is too late?

Emerge – The Awakening is a novel that grabbed my attention within the first few pages and refused to let go until the very end. The premise was exciting, the storyline kept me guessing, and the plot kept me reading, which are all qualities of an excellent book. Melissa A. Craven excels at bringing her characters to life especially with Allie and Aidan, whose attraction to one another could be felt through the pages. What I loved the most was the introduction of Aidan into Allie’s life as he was not made to be superior or inferior to her, but equal. One small critique is that perhaps Craven could have slowed down the development of Allie and Aidan’s relationship as I felt that plot element in particular was slightly rushed. Apart from that, I would highly recommend this novel as it is fast-paced, interesting and, above all, a very good read.
