The Awakening : As their territory is thrown into chaos, princess Lilja and her keeper, a unique guardian by the name of Kaden, must find a resolution and return peace to a people driven by fear. But how does one exactly restore a fallen kingdom if they can’t even remember it? After an incident of war, Lilja has found herself just there—lost inside her own mind and a stranger to her very existence. Their destinies entwined, Lilja and Kaden’s only hope rests in the hands of a magic wielder whose price for salvation may just be more dangerous than the war itself. Together they must forge a path to save their civilization, but first they will need to come to terms with who they both truly are, because the past is always just around the corner.

“I know I know you,” she promised in a hush between them as she puzzled. And she did. Something about this scent, the way his curls hung on his brow, and the way he protected her. “I know you…I just don’t remember you,” she rattled off apologetically, afraid and confused.
What was happening?
“You hit your head pretty hard,” he said quietly after a long moment, tearing his eyes away from hers and falling back to her side with a thick swallow. “You need rest. It’ll come back…” he trailed off, trying to reassure himself as much as her.”
