"This fast paced YA fantasy drew me immediately into the story when teens, Annie and David, receive mysterious packages. Their lives are similar, each losing a parent, and when they meet their mentors, Gabriel and Peter, Annie and David discover they have special powers.
They learn of the parallel universe, ruled by a tyrant where their deceased parents have come from. That world is dying and even though their scientists are far more advanced in medicine and technology they can’t stop the environmental crisis and Goliath, the president of the alternate universe, wants to take over ours.
Ms Andrews writes a fascinating story that will be appealing to the young reader. The fast paced novel will keep them interested and the teen humor and life experiences can be easily related to by the reader. Good job."
"Great job Buffy Andrews! I loved this book and could not put it down. It holds your attention the entire time. I really enjoyed this story."

"The Lion Awakens," a new YA fantasy by Buffy Andrews, is a story of parallels. David and Annie live parallel lives that meet at an old Brownstone where they find unexpected truth, dangerous adventures, love, and parallel universes. The parallels continue as they encounter characters with Biblical names like Gabriel, Peter, and Goliath. They wrestle with the meaning behind rings bearing the head of a lion, two birthmarks shaped like the cross, and another that includes a crown of thorns. Eventually, they find themselves embroiled in a turbulent battle between good and evil.
In classic Andrews’ style, the author has created characters that move straight from the pages into the hearts of her readers, and she has written a story that will linger long after the final page is turned. Thankfully, Ms. Andrews finished her story with the perfect setup for a sequel."
