Fallen Awake

Daniela Lara

Imagine waking into a new dimension, where you are the protagonist of the merging of two parallel realities? Jasmine's existence is no ordinary journey...

 

Jasmine Penner believes herself to be an ordinary college student, exploring a world of career options for the future, in the humble, industrialized city of Hamilton Ontario - Little does she know the mystical magnitude of decisions the future holds in store for her. Her mother Deb possesses a particular sixth sense that intuites her of Jasmine's supernatural nature. But where powerful forces are concerned, there are always polar opposites: positive and negative, good and evil, light and darkness.
Jasmine delves deeper into this supernatural realm and soon realizes the forces she is dealing with - But the deeper she delves, the more mysterious her world becomes. In her journey, she crosses paths with a likewise powerful being - Helios. He guides Jasmine in the right direction, but is limited in how much he can devulge. To make matters more complicated, his antagonist, Erebus, is equally powerful and very persuasive. Jasmine's true quest is in jeopardy - challenged with constant circumstances and clues, as her foggy reality teases her with morcels of information. Jasmine is deterimined more than ever to chase after her destiny, clinging to the hope that she will serve a purpose...

Stay tuned for sequels in progress.

Helios

He stormed out of the earth’s realm like a flash of lightening. For the first time in what seemed like an eternity, Helios felt truly angry and disgusted. Just the thought of that distant memory filled his heart with shame and remorse. He thought he had erased his past from his mind, but his soul would forever remember. He wept like a child as if to cleanse away the memories, but it only flooded his mind with aggressive waves of despair. He replayed the words in his mind I am a guardian angel of light, I have sworn to forever depart from darkness. His anger towards Erebus swelled in his chest, and made him tremble with weakness. His words lashed at him like a razor sharp whip. Don’t speak of him like he’s not your He wouldn’t allow his mind to fill in the unspoken truth. …Traitor! His mind echoed with his brother’s painful words. He thought of the times when they had been so close.  As he reminisced in the time they were truly inseparable, his thoughts carried through until the day their relationship reached a fork in the road. It was the day when he had realized he truly had freedom of will; the day when he could choose light over the path of darkness.  He had finally understood that there was so much more to existence then to merely exist, and cater to every self-satisfying whim. He remembered her eyes, searing through his soul and reaching out to him. Love had been her downfall as well as her salvation.  He smiled to himself as he pondered over the mother of all paradoxes. He thought of how profound love is. How it can be the utmost selfish and demanding force, yet the most self-sacrificing and humble. She too could relate with what he had been through, but ironically, she didn’t have the capacity to remember.  As painful as this revelation was to Helios, he resigned himself with the thought that he had been given a chance to make things right with himself and the universe. He also prayed that she as well would make the right choices and follow the path that would finally lead her back to the truth. He had dreamt of that moment for centuries. All he could do was be eternally patient, and let the future unfold before him, and hope that she would remember on her own accord. He prayed for more patience and inner strength to continue to guard her and guide her in the right direction, without being too revealing, as much as the desire burned in his chest. He was to keep his oath as a guardian angel of light, and let free will take its course.

A very unusual voice. Great dialogue. Sounds young and modern.
I even like the parts where you talk to the reader.
I have to come back and read some more of this.
Very interesting plot.
