Tales Awaken


About The Book

Sixteen-year-old River Doe is a bookworm. Ilithia, the fictional land of her favorite book series–The Legend of Bellecross–has always felt more like home to her than her real home. Her parents are okay, she guesses, but they don’t understand her. Her best friend, Nuria Ryze, is the only person who really does. Secretly, she finds her life boring—until it flips upside down and she travels to somewhere unexpected: Ilithia! There, this seemingly normal girl finds out she is actually the great-granddaughter of the protagonist in her favorite books. Follow River
Bellecross as she uncovers the mysteries of her past. Join her as she meets her true family and forms new friendships with her people. Watch her grow into the Bellecross she was meant to be. Her fate is in her hands now. Can she survive?
