Second Book in The Network Series

Still reeling in the wake of her mother’s death, sixteen-year-old Bianca Monroe is forced to move to Chatham Castle.

Not even the sudden appearance of ancient dragons in haunted Letum Wood nor her two best friends can distract her from the strength of her deep, dark rage.

Her grief puts her magical powers into chaos, endangering any witch around her. She has six months left to destroy the curse that will kill her and fulfill her contract with the most cunning enemy of all: her former teacher Miss Mabel.

Bianca must make a choice: learn to control her restless powers, or let the powers control her.

Alkarra Awakening is the second book in the thrilling new fantasy collection The Network Series. It’s a haunting tale about tragedy, loss, and the power of moving on.

The power of mourning

When you enjoy the first book and need the next one pronto! It’s great to find that next book just as intriguing and easy to read as the one before… this second book was great! I loved how Bianca and her father both mourns the death of her mother in such different ways, this book is awesome! I enjoyed seeing Bianca grow a little more into the woman her parents wished her to be, finding strength is not always easy… thanx Katie for a story about inner courage!

Brilliant series

I read this as part of the Network Series Collection. so I will copy that review here also. The stories had me spellbound from beginning to end. Bianca with her inherited curse. Friends she makes. An evil teacher. Danger. Death. Powers. A dangerous enemy. A gorgeous Protector. A love between father and daughter. A kidnapping. More death and a battle to the end. Very highly recommended series. Loved it.

Bianca to the Recue

Wow! Bianca is either the next Supergirl or the next GIBianca. This book has Bianca training for the next battle for the life of not just her father, but hers also. Katie, your description make the reader feel like they are right beside her. Can’t wait to start the next one?


Loved this series. Was sad when it was over

One of my fave books ever!! So many things I loved about Bianca. The whole story is spellbinding. I love a MC who isn’t helpless but smart, even when the cards are stacked against her.
