They destroyed her village. But they left Tara alive. That was their first mistake.
When everything she loves lies in ruins, Tara must run. From the deadly sand lands. From a merciless Prezedant.
And from the lies she’s been told her entire life.
With nowhere else to go, she heads to the town of Rivercross. But if Tara thinks she’ll find safety there, she’s mistaken. And the answers she receives raise only more questions.
For her surviving kin. For what she must now do. Because being a New Blood is dangerous. She’ll be feared. She’ll be hunted.
And if she doesn’t find the power within herself soon, the crazed Prezedant’s grip on the world will become unstoppable.
Awaken is the first book in the young adult dystopian New Bloods series. With riveting characters, rich world-building and an intriguing story, this book by Michelle Bryan will leave you wanting more.
Praise for Awaken
"If Borderlands and the Fallout world had a YA baby, this book would be it. The raiders, the muties, the crazy banter--I felt at home with the insaneness of it all!"–C.W.
"Prepare to be taken on a dangerous journey of self discovery, the search for answers, and the awakening of a new power. Awaken gives us a 'Wizard of Oz' like story with the introduction of a character as strong and as symbolic as the 'Mockingjay.' You will be inspired and impressed by our heroine Tara. Your heart will melt for the lovable Finn. You will feel wonder and suspicion toward Tater, and will fall in love with Jax."–A.M.
"Blew my mind! The Characters were very well written! I couldn't have asked for a better plot either! This story was amazing!!! Loved it from start to finish! It's one of those books that make you want to reread just so your mind can be blown again!"–Kristina
