Description

Awakening Worlds
Awakening worlds is a gothic fantasy about the perils of human supremacy and the destiny of planet Earth.


When Roselyn, daughter of the universe, learns humanity's growing disregard for Earth's health is putting her mother's life in danger, she volunteers to nurture a new spirit for the planet's rebirth.
Roselyn arrives fresh from the world of ancient sunlight in 1784, and she soon discerns that human life is dispensable if she is to succeed in fulfilling the prophecy of the next world.
Roselyn's actions are not as compassionate as one might expect from a goddess born from the planet Venus. But when Roselyn finds the spirit of Earth growing inside a young girl whose parents have hidden her away from the world, she finds herself feeling more compassionate-and more human-than she ever thought possible.
Roselyn is a strong female protagonist whose quest reveals an underlying hope for humanity despite her inhuman attitude towards the humans she encounters.


EXCERPT FROM AWAKENING WORLDS


All that she will remember are the sensations. Shrinking through a hole the size of a needle's eye like the last grain of sand that slips through the body of an hourglass. Twisting through the shifting fields of space, a golden thread repairing a rip in sacred material. A host of bright white beams pierce the darkness, striking the ocean like shards of glass. She longs to reach her destination and meet her future self. She will heal the scarred flesh and wake the unconscious.
Her tail is a river of fire that stretches beyond her ethereal body. She breaks through the fragile surface of the atmosphere, igniting a gentle light. Golden vapour spirals in crystal formations towards Earth. What is left of her is the essence, her spirit exposed and falling with precision like a hunter's bullet.
"Thought provoking, inspiring, a great little read... Hopefully a good catalyst to influence how we treat our planet."
"Thoroughly enjoyed every page. Very well written and imaginative story with an important underlying message. I would strongly recommend this book to everybody."
