The Great Awakening is the second book in the SiBoRE series by Arthur F Seymour. Taking place some years after Earth Won, Ruby and Seymour are married and have a family. Living in a castle inside a cave, they know their sons and daughter are their priority. When a global pandemic puts everyone to sleep, the only way their community can survive is to put their community on lockdown and away from the rest of the world. While they can hide forever inside, that is not the best option. So, it becomes the job of everyone inside the cave to save the world from this horrible pandemic and bring life back to normal. But is it possible? How can they when they have to fight against the evil creature?

Reading The Great Awakening was the most calming yet entertaining experience. Arthur F Seymour craftily creates a believable world in which robots and humans work together to fight off a common enemy. The intrigue behind the virus, how Seymour and his team work together to find a cure, and the presence of the white crow Sally all work together incredibly well. This novel is short, so I am very surprised at how cohesive and complete it is. In less than a hundred pages, the author gives a fast-paced, action-packed story with well-rounded characters and an incredibly rich plot. The story provides a unique yet very fulfilling reading experience with QR codes. I love the dry sense of humor in the story. I love the educational perspective, and I thoroughly enjoyed the poems and literary diversity in the story.

THE GREAT AWAKENING is a sequel to EARTH WON that takes place ten years after Seymour and Ruby get married. They now have four children and live in the palace inside a large cave on top of a mountain. There is a small village that surrounds the palace and the cave is so huge it even has gardens, a lake, and many little homes for the villagers. A terrible pandemic that puts the whole world to sleep forces the cave to go into lockdown. The people locked into the cave fight to save those infected by the worldwide pandemic. There are four GA (Gaurdian Angel) robots named Robyn, Max, Min, and Feeniks that help save the world from a Satanic evil plan. Devyn a very old cat from EARTH WON is taken into the light by a moth that is really the spirit of Glen the hero of the book EARTH WON. An albino crow, becomes a substitute for Glen and helps lead everyone in the right direction. A grandmother named Yolanda and a boy named Martin wake up the others and show them that only love can save the world. The poems in the story are necessary to help the characters unlock mysteries and encourage goodness. You can use a link in the book to hear the characters sing a song that will bring love back to cold enemy hearts. There are other quick response barcodes in the story that show real world Internet sites linking fiction to fact. The QR codes can be changed making every reader a potential Dynamic Editor. The book ends with many unanswered questions. Do not worry because as Moses the moth would say, they will all be answered "Soon".

THE GREAT AWAKENING Very unique and creative approach to use a simple story to inspire the reader for his or her life! i found the use of QR codes most helpful in clarifying meanings of words not often used in everyday speaking! Mr. Seymour's poems add a depth of emotional insight and feeling that prose does not often bring by itself! The characters are so real one feels drawn to follow their stories! Eager for NEXT BOOK!!!
