Awakening: Book One of the TotKW Saga

Book One: Awakening

A potent tale of self-discovery.

Centuries ago, the prophetic Golden Age ended in war,
and history spiraled into darkness...

Now, only scholars retain the last portent of the mythic city A'lara, concealed in a distant glade for the advent of the dragon mage.

At the edge of the Known World, the slave Larin escapes her new lord before she meets his dark masters.

Deep in the mountains, the legendary elf Kingard awaits his call to battle.

When young Darek flees imperial mages tasked to exterminate shape-shifters, he launches them all on a voyage to redeem their unsought destiny.

United by fate and guided by prophesy, their growing band of fugitives journey for A'lara to fight the ancient evil infiltrating the capital.

But looming over the gears of fate, their enemies follow the same prophesies.

With the unknown close upon them, Kingard and his allies face a mortal quest to restore their infected empire.

Praise for Awakening:

If you love Anne McCaffrey, J.R.R. Tolkien and Tad Williams,

then Awakening is a novel you will surely want to pick up.

D.N.Frost is a consummate world-builder with a knack for creating characters that are complex and three-dimensional.

Frost writes with graceful prose that is descriptive and well-edited. The plot is fast-paced and entertaining. What really sets this novel apart is the cartography, which is a spectacular accomplishment.

Incredible world-building!

- M.L. Spencer, author of The Rhenwars Saga ★★★★★

Unbridled, uncontrived, and groundbreaking.

This story really stands out.

It's as original as Watership Down, with puzzle pieces that snap together in satisfying succession.

The book becomes its own reality.

It feels like the author is a vessel responsible for the story, and she lets the story tell itself. I couldn't put it down, and I really want to read the next book.

Keep 'em coming!

I was on the edge of my seat as I turned each page.

This wonderfully written fantasy novel will have you wanting more. All of the characters and the Known World were so very well written.

Readers are always looking for a novel that is hard to put down. Look no further, Awakening is that novel.

Follow a slave with a special talent named Larin, the powerful elf Kingard, and young shape-shifter Darek as they escape from their troubles and travel with other fantastic characters heading for A’lara to fight a great evil.

I now want to see the Known World visually come to life; a movie adaptation would be amazing. Before reading Awakening, I never read any other fantasy novels. I have been converted to that genre. It had everything you would want in a great novel.

A fantasy novel you will never forget!
