Enlightenment: Oblivion shares the compelling story of survival and the inevitability of choices which compels one from moving out of the confines of the protective environment and into the elusive world of the unknown. Written by author Derek Hitchmough, this book trails the poignant and capricious journey of a young girl whose early path in life is tainted by a traumatic experience.

In this engaging first book of its series, readers will be introduced to Brianna, a not-your-typical 6-year old girl for she is more mature for her age. She grew up in a loving and conducive environment, surrounded by a lovely set of family and friends. Life seems to be kind to her, or so she thought as one night veers her path into another direction. Her family gets attacked by dark forces.

Being the sole survivor of the violent killings, she wanders off across the land, not knowing where the road would take her. Amidst this uncertainty, a chance encounter in a city changes her life forever. Over the years, she learns to live independently, having no one to take care of her but herself. This is the life that she now knows, alone and introverted. Nevertheless, just as she begins to get used to this kind of living, another series of unexpected blows arise as dark forces seem to follow her at every turn.

Readers will be exhilarated to find out where the startling twists and turns of this page-turner will lead Brianna as the plagues of the past come back to haunt her. Riveting, thrilling and breathtaking, Enlightenment: Oblivion is definitely going to make an indelible mark to its readers’ subconscious.
