Growing up is never easy, but for Jahrra, seventeen years has brought its own unique share of hardships. She's made both friends and enemies; has felt both joy and sorrow. Yet she has persevered through it all and has finally learned to know and accept who she is. Unfortunately, her trials and tribulations are only just beginning . . .
An inconceivable tragedy and the revelation of a secret kept from her since birth has turned her perfect world on its end. Jahrra isn't the poor Nesnan she thought she was, but human, one promised by Ethöes in a prophecy from long ago. Now, without her guardian, she must accept the help of the one she mistrusts the most as they flee Oescienne before the Tyrant's minions have a chance to close in.
With her enemies at her heels and the terrifying truth looming before her, Jahrra will seek shelter with the dragon Raejaaxorix in the faraway city of Lidien, a place of hope and enlightenment. But when the City of Light proves to entertain its own dangers, Jahrra and Jaax find their safety threatened once again. But this time the threat may be coming from those they trust the most . . .

Excellent story. Follows true to the series. Love the characters and the interactions between the people and the dragons. Great job. Please keep writing. MR.
At 17-years old Jahrra has known more loss than most kids. She lost her adoptive parents at the age of 8 and has recently lost her dragon guardian. Now under the responsibility of Jaax they are forced to make their way to Lidien to be protected from the Tyrant's men that are determined to find the human that is prophesied to bring his demise. The Awakening revolves around Jahrra's life now in Lidien and her journey through University. She's now having to meet people who know about her and what she is as well as a group called the Coalition, who are determined to see the end of the Tyrant. But even in a peaceful place like Lidien there are still spies and people who have their own agendas. Follow along with Jahrra annd her attempts to live as normal of a life as she can, even with the weight of the world on her shoulders. While there wasn't much "action" per say in this book, this one kept my interest more because we get to see more of the people who are backing Jahrra and her destiny as well as how far the Crimson King's reach is and the greed that has overcome some.
It's been a year since Jaax and Jahrra moved to Lidien. Unfortunately, their enemies still seek them and destinies can't be stopped. Leaving her new friends, she must travel with Jaax to Nimbronia, a city in the clouds, to try and forge an alliance that will help them succeed.
