The twelve stories contained in this volume introduce the reader to the world of Hibaria and the Islands. It is a world of magic and mystery, of dragons and sea serpents, a world where the Sky Lords – the Constellations – can take physical form and walk the land. It is a world in which an ancient evil, long imprisoned, threatens to break free.
The central characters in these stories are children and young adults who grapple with fear and sorrow, loss and longing, and who are given the opportunity to choose courage and hope. Their individual stories weave together to begin to tell a larger narrative.
This full-color volume is as much a book of stories as it is an art book: it is brimming with richly painted illustrations, numerous supplemental sketches, and finely detailed maps.

I received my copy after a frustrating day, and it was a joy to get a cup of tea and sit down to look at this work. It is so immersive; the artwork is absolutely gorgeous and the stories are intriguing and mysterious. There are so many details that fit together, and every time I revisit it I am able to connect a few more things. I’m really hoping that calling this “The Awakening” means that it is only the first in a collection of Tales of Hibaria.
This is just the beginning, Chloe!
