       Additional Information  
      Cradled by the morning mist, the Father discovers a rare and precious treasure, but the babe is already dead. Breathing life back into her lungs, he names her Aurora, for she is a gift of the morning, and nourishes her with the healing water from the spring of life. Though alive, she spends the first thirteen years of her life fighting the dark sleep threatening to consume her.

    But not even the dark sleep can extinguish the light of love, and Aurora awakens in her Father's house. She remembers nothing save the cold of darkness, a black sea crashing its waves about her, threatening to swallow her in its depths, but it is love that buries the dark sleep deeper and deeper until it is nothing but a tiny speck in a sea of light.

    Though the dark sleep is buried, it cannot be vanquished, for it is indeed a part of her. After three years serving the Father behind enemy lines, Aurora is lured by the darkness. Seeking to discover the truth of her beginnings, she sets off in search of herself in the isolated kingdom of her nativity.

    But some truths are best left unknown.
