Najee: Awakening - Najee Series, Book 2 by Sarah Y. Westmoreland is the continuation of Akinia’s story as she comes to terms with her life; current, past and future. While the first novel in the series was all about Akinia learning to trust herself, her instincts and her abilities, this novel is about testing everything that she has learnt to finally see if she is everything that people trust her to be. She is still the same determined young woman, but now she is even more mature and ready to take charge of the situation. She is a go-getter, someone who is not afraid of taking a chance and taking responsibility.
It hasn’t been long since Akinia found out about her past and finally discovering the secrets has been liberating in a way. She is now coming to terms with her psychokinetic powers and trying to master them as quickly as possible. But controlling her powers is not easy, just like everything else in her life. Her powers are far more dangerous than she anticipated and she has to fight every second to be able to master them. However, there are many more secrets that are kept hidden from her; secrets that can send her reeling and wishing that she never found them out. But she is running out of time and she is in immense danger. What can Akinia do when she has no idea who she really is? What can she do when she is not even aware of her own powers?
Akinia is not your garden variety YA fiction heroine. She is tenacious, determined, rebellious and ready to take action. She is one of the most intelligent protagonists I have ever read about. She knows when to step in, when to step back, and when she should charge into battle. The author did an amazing job with this character. While keeping Akinia’s integrity alive, Sarah Y. Westmoreland created a monster of a character that you come across once in a blue moon. I enjoyed this story line even more because I got to read about Akinia in her element. She is strong, fierce and simply amazing and I love her to bits!
