She could still hear the screams, the warning sirens, the pounding of her heart ...
After years of suffering through the Android Freedom War, the people of the nation of Icni faced the ultimate unstoppable disaster: Carta's Comet. Those few categorised as 'Useful' by the High Council found shelter within the vast network of government underground bunkers known as 'The Facilities'.
But did they find safety?
Within the confines of Facility 6, Katrina finds there's more to the facilities than was featured in the press releases. Mirrorless walls and locked doors. Cameras and restricted areas. And the mysterious 'Reassignments' and 'Cleanup Units', the destinations for those who do not comply. But they cannot remain within Facility 6 forever, and Katrina emerges with her fellow survivors into the freedom of a fresh, new world, ripe for possibilities, and untouched for centuries.
And that's when Fear really begins.
Awakening is the debut novel from Australian fiction author Tiffany A. Drake, and the first novel to feature in The Kalarni Series. A gripping supernatural thriller set in a hostile, post-apocalyptic dystopia, Awakening features elements of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror narratives, told with a twist of adventure.
Through Awakening, you will join the lead protagonist Katrina, a shy, insecure, and utterly geeky young woman, as she awakens from her slumber of three centuries, and is thrust into a world unrecognisable from the one she left behind. You will delve alongside her into the initial layers of fear, exposing yourself to its destructive power, as she begins her journey towards the ultimate destination of self-revelation and empowerment... if Fear doesn't claim her first.
