This is the final book in Koboldt’s Gateways To Alissia series, following The Rogue Retrieval and The Island Deception. Dan is active in the online writing community through the #SFPit Twitter pitch events he hosts each year, and his involvement in PitchWars and other online contests. His blog features many articles on various scientific topics as they relate to science fiction.

I’d mentioned in reviewing the earlier volumes what an enjoyable and engaging character Quinn Bradley is. This book deepened my appreciation of several other characters in the cast, which made me enjoy it even more.

I gave World Awakening five stars on Goodreads. This book had a faster pace than the first two volumes, packing a lot of action throughout the book. I was satisfied with how the series concluded, but if Koboldt ever decides to revisit Alissia with these characters, I’m definitely on board.
