Awakened, by Ciara Duggan
All 17-year-old Hannah wants is a fresh start after her parents died. That’s why she decided to go to college on the other side of the country. But when she accidentally awakens a handsome witch from a hidden cave on campus during her first week, her desire for a new beginning is thwarted. Hannah realizes that she accidentally awakened all magic... including the devil. Furthermore, when the witch recognizes Hannah as the love of his life from the 1600s, she is thrust into a world of magic and mythical creatures only ever read about in storybooks.
Through spells and curses, good versus evil, and normal college jitters, Hannah soon learns that magic was locked away for a very good reason.
