You can't unsee the Truth. Geeky lesbian Dakota Shepherd was just a bored night security guard, working at a museum in Knoxville, Tennessee until one fateful encounter changed it all.
A rogue wizard. A demonic ritual. A silver chalice. Dakota Awakened, Hellfire blazing from her hands.
Dakota's powers are a danger to herself and everyone around her, and she has to learn to control them quickly or risk losing her one chance to finally fulfill a lifelong dream.
While coming to terms with her new reality, she stumbles upon a secret that changed the course of her life.
Now she wants to know who is responsible for the holes in her memory, the blocks that hold back her powers, and all the years she spent alone.
Who put her back to sleep when she Awakened years before?

Awakened is the first book in the Auralight Codex: Dakota Shepherd series, a page-turning Urban Fantasy series by Shei Darksbane. Fans of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files will love this thoughtful, can't-put-it-down, coming-of-age beginning to an ongoing series with many installments yet to come.

While the first story focuses heavily on inner conflicts, the series evolves with the main character's growth. If you love heavy character-development, in-depth world building, and diversity and representation, you will love the Auralight Codex: Dakota Shepherd series. Those with expectations of a standard Urban Fantasy experience will find more familiar territory as the series progresses, so dig in and start reading!
