Awakening, written by Ray N. Kuili, is the story of various management level business people whose thirst for power and drive to succeed lead them to a mysterious and secluded training seminar. This page turner is exciting for the underlying tensions between the characters, which makes it almost psychological in nature. Themes of conquest and thirst for power are apparent, and re-emerge within the plot again and again. Such themes ask the reader not only to ponder the characters’ drives and aspirations, but also to question their own base desires. From the times of Napoleon to the modern cut-throat business world, Kuili asks the age old question: how far will someone go to become truly powerful? This thriller is wonderfully descriptive, fast paced, and complex. It boasts believable characters and a setting that is both bizarre and intriguing.
