Awaken the Dawn

Kat’s dad buried his past for a reason. Now he’s dead, and Kat must uncover the family secret before a crime ring (and Eastern Europe’s biggest crime boss) beats her to it.affection-afterglow-backlit-556667

When her dad dies during a business trip to his Romanian homeland, seventeen-year-old Kat blames herself for their failed relationship. She’s been holding a grudge and never even said “I love you” when he left. Racked with guilt and haunted by strange dreams about the crash that killed him, she’d do anything to have him back.

Then a package arrives from Romania. It’s from her dad and contains a list of clues—one of his classic scavenger hunts. Desperate to know why he sent it, and hoping to explain his unusual behavior before the trip, she takes up the challenge and travels to Bucharest. There she encounters Maksim, a reformed scammer who has the perfect skillset for decoding the clues. Romance wasn’t on the itinerary, but when Kat and Maksim follow the scavenger hunt to Transylvania, their hearts make an unexpected detour. They’re both having strange dreams now, and their bond grows–until the clues uncover a deadly secret the dreams have been pointing to.

Maksim’s old crime ring, led by his mafioso cousin, has been searching for the scavenger hunt’s endgame prize, and Kat’s dad died to keep it out of their reach. Now Kat must decide: walk away from everything, including this forbidden love with Maksim, or risk it all and finish what her dad started.
