~ Synopsis ~


When thirteen-year-old Ethan Morus is forced to stay on his grandparent’s old farm, he expects to find weathered barns, rusty tools, and a creaky house in need of fresh paint. What he doesn’t expect is to hear a legend placing his family at the center of an ancient treasure hunt. Or find burial chambers protected by poltergeists, or a secret lair guarded by an ancient beast. And least of all, Ethan doesn’t suspect that powerful sorcerers are watching his every move.

They’ve found Ethan and believe he is from a line of treasure hunters who possess a rare instinct to locate powerful artifacts. Whether he has the instinct or not, Ethan is faced with a choice—search the Morus property and find what they want or lose yet another family member.

“The Hunter Awakens was a beautifully written and creative tale which kept me glued to the pages. It swept me away on an adventure, into a unique fantasy world filled with dark and light magic. A place where many things are not as they seem. If you’re looking for adventure, suspense, and mystery, I definitely recommend you give this book a try.” – Cameo Renae – Bestselling author of the Hidden Wings Series and ARV-3
