Servant: The Awakening is a story about a young woman/girl Gabrielle Cody otherwise known as Gabby. Gabby is a 21 years old who lives a lonely existence. She has a surly and unapproachable attitude and actively pushes people away from her with good reason. Gabby is the Hand of God. She can sense evil and sees it in its true and hideous form. When this happens she has a compultion to destroy the evil doer, usually when they are in the act of hurting someone. This for Gabby is a heavey burden and yet she is drawn to the old Hospital where she feels evil is being done. By who or what is for Gabby to track down and destroy.
Detective Luther Cross is attracted to Gabby. He tries to form a relationship with Gabby, even though, he is suspicious about her proximity to a murder victim. Morty is Gabby's landlord who is only trying to befriend Gabby. I have to hand it to Morty for tenacity he just keeps on trying.
I really like this book and highly recommend it to people who are interested in urban fantasy. A good addition to the genre even though there are no vampires, werewolves or witches.
