Awakening




When Zelie Taylor pulls a lost necklace out of the icy waters of the lake, she has no idea what the consequences will be . . .
A fast-paced and fully absorbing young adult novel from an extensively published romance writer.

The cold spread like anesthetic in her veins. Fear resurged, driving deeper into every cell.
'Why would my looking in a mirror help you see me?'
'Because I see through your eyes.'
When Zelie Taylor pulls a lost necklace out of the icy waters of the lake, she has no idea what the consequences will be.
At first the pendant is just freezing cold – unnaturally so – but then she hears a voice inside her head and thinks she must be going mad. She's not. Seventeen-year-old Támas's soul has been trapped in the silver necklace since 1918. His body is nearby, sleeping, and Zelie must help him awaken.
At first Zelie just wants Támas's moody, enigmatic presence out of her life, but after a while she isn't so sure. And what is waiting for Támas when he does emerge? It seems that the sinister force that trapped him all those years ago has returned and is growing more powerful.

About the author

Natalie King

Natalie King has always had imaginary friends in her head spilling their secrets and leading her mind astray. This proved a distraction both during school and beyond and she ultimately abandoned her various jobs as researcher, mystery shopper and recruitment specialist because she was forever imagining herself elsewhere.


Fortunately she now locks herself in her little garden shed, able to spend her days scribbling the stories those imaginary characters entice her with. When she's not writing, she's watching movies, surfing the net or splashing through water, or being 'lunchbox fairy' for her four kids.


Natalie also writes contemporary romance as Natalie Anderson. In this genre she's had more than twenty-five novels published, been translated into many languages, and sold over two million books. A USA TODAY bestseller, she's also been a Romantic Times Award nominee & a finalist for the R*BY (Romantic Book of the Year). She lives in Christchurch, New Zealand.
