One of my recurring nightmares is that I walk on a path or through a house crawling with snakes. This is pretty much the beginning of Awakening, a slithering suspense featuring one of the world's most deadly serpent. I loved everything about this thriller. The characters, the mystery and the setting in a rural English village. I found myself strangely fascinated by snakes at the end of it.
