With a long book –
such as Proust’s In Search of Lost Time,
you immerse yourself in a world that is enveloping, absorbing, that takes you on a long journey.
You get your money's worth.
More and more,
long books in print use tiny fonts.
But not Awen Rising.
Its font is large and readable.
The trend is to read books around 200 pages: something you can complete in an evening.
That's hardly worth the effort
of turning the pages!
Game of Thrones taught us the pleasure of immersing ourselves
in a complex, magical world of conflict, ambition, and dueling strong-willed characters.
Awen Rising has them.
And reptilian adversaries on par with the danger of the White Walkers.
Emily Mayhall is an overwhelmed woman few, especially Emily herself,
would think of as a champion for a world bruised by natural disasters and supernatural attacks.
A Druid heritage and supernatural beckonings are insistent Destinies that refuse to take NO for an answer.
Set in a time only a decade or two from now, O. J.
