A section to comment on the Awakening series. You may find polls here, secrets answered, character bios–I’m not sure exactly yet. Please, if you have suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
An unknown sorcerer excluded from the sorcery circles until unexpectedly accepted into the Hierarchy, an exclusive school for the magically gifted. Evanel is focused on finding a way to remove his magic in the hopes of living a life free of the politics and power manipulations those with magic are subjected to. During his first meeting of his peers, he finds himself at home with lust creatures, predators who feed off of the arousal of their hapless prey. Evan shows no similar mindset and is immune to their allure. He has a strange, confusing charisma that leads those who have just met him to become obsessed, and his life is quickly at risk.
Tormented and abused at home, Evanel struggles with a lack of desire for life or human connection. As secrets reveal and he finds himself within a web of intrigue created by ancient, powerful beings on an Earth where gods walk the planet, his mental and emotional stability will decide if his sealed powers save or destroy.
Vesper lives his life as sacrifice to a demon in order to protect his family and the Malice bloodline. His mother is queen to the Celestial Clan, who has cast her and her family aside because of the demon’s presence. Vesper spends his days in isolation, possessing extreme powers he doesn’t feel safe using for fear of upsetting Heiden, his soon to be master. When called to the Hierarchy, Vesper hopes he will have an opportunity to contribute some good for his short time on the planet. Instead, he meets Evanel, which sets off a chain of events he has no control over but he is certain he is fully to blame for.
Vesper learns he is god touched by the shining faced god. In a last ditch rebellion, Vesper chooses to protect the ones he loves before he willfully takes his own life. If he doesn’t die, he knows the madness will surely consume him on his awakening, and he will become an instrument of absolute destruction.
The last surviving member of the Black Lustre Clan, Devlan holds great power and great pain, and both of which he tries to drown out with mindless debauchery. He was adopted by the Greenlaude elves but does not feel as if he truly has a home that understands him. Bitter, lacking direction, and disenchanted with the world in general, Devlan accepts the Hierarchy’s invitation merely for the opportunity to hunt fresh prey. Nocturnal, he feeds off sexual energy to live, something that has mysteriously been impeded since he fed from Evanel.
Feeling his very survival at risk, Devlan is reluctantly convinced by Vesper to help protect the angry-eyed human who ruined his life.
