In Awakening, when a young academic in modern-day Boston is killed by dark sorcery, her death severs powerful binding spells borne by her bloodline for generations, awakening a dark power from ages past and releasing it upon the world. Professor Katherine Kat Donelly, heiress to her familys forgotten legacy, startles back to life inside her own grave, reanimated by the same power her death set free.
Transformed by her death and the dark magics that drive her on, preying on her mind and spirit, Kat struggles to reclaim her life and her place in the world. But with the city of Boston drowning in a rising tide of nightmares and horrors, Kat finds herself stumbling unwillingly into the role of its protector, learning to stand as Champion against the growing darkness, both that which is without and that which is within her very being.
Guided by the nightmare visions of her wife, Veronica, and counseled by Grey, an enigmatic and haunted warrior from the past who cannot die, Kat prepares herself to confront Thanatos, dark god of the dead. Death cults and the undead come forth from the worlds nightmares at his command, and a city holds its breath as its reluctant hero faces humanitys oldest and darkest fear that in the end, everyone meets Death alone.
