The Awakening invites the reader into the hierarchical, multi-faceted world of BDSM relationships, focusing on married Atlantan couple and self-ascribed 'lifestyle Dominants' Kane and Mercedes - or Ramesses and Nefertirri as they're known within the Dom community. From the language to the ceremonies to the costume, Shakir Rashaan weaves you into and through this lifestyle, steeping you head first into both its grit and its glamour. The story gives you decadence, suspense, drama, sex and sin, leaving the reader constantly wondering what is fact and what is fiction. Not for the squeamish and definitely an over 18 read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

"The Awakening" centers around Lord Ramesses (Kane) and his wife, Lady Neferterri (Mercedes) and their alternative sexual lifestyle. Mix in jealousy, betrayal, and sex, and you are in for a treat. It will leave you believing the old saying... things aren't always what they appear to be.
"Chronicles of the Nubian Underground:The Awakening" introduces its readers to the underground world of Atlanta's BDSM Community. For those who are unfamiliar, BDSM is an erotic practice and expression involving the consensual use of restraints, intense sensory stimulation, and fantasy role play. I enjoyed reading this book, but there were times I felt the author was too wordy, which caused me to lose my train of thought in some parts of the book. I believe if you read this selection with an open mind you will enjoy the ride this book will take you on. Overall, I wouldn't mind reading another selection from this author.
