“The time for Kiero’s reign in prosperity is over.”   

Six years before the Black Dawn Rebellion, Adair Stratton and Emory Fae are following in their parent’s footsteps and living at The Academy, a home for those who are gifted. The pressure to uphold the future of their parent’s dream falls on them. An outcast and feared by most, Adair longs to break away from the expectations dictating his future. Even if Emory tries to make him see differently. An unexpected group of friends keep him there, but as whispers of unexplained disappearances start reaching from the capital, Adair starts to doubt The Academy is all it seems.   

An unexpected visit ignites new tensions as the roguish king from across the Black Sea, Tadeas Maher of the Shattered Isles, and his heir, Marquis Maher sail to Kiero. Notorious for their pirating and wrath- for the first time in years, they demand the Fae’s listen to their proposition for a new treaty, holding the news of Nei’s father’s abrupt death over them. Caught in the middle of politics- Adair and Emory, with the help of their best friends Brokk and Memphis search for the one thing that matters most- finding out the truth.   

In this gripping prequel to Black Dawn, their world is tipped upside down as unlikely alliances are made. War ravages through Kiero and is torn apart by acclaimed Kings. Through the throes of betrayal, lies, hidden magic and love, Adair is faced with a life changing decision- to fight or to bow to the darkness within him.

If I Knew Then What I Know Now About Writing

Thank you for having me! One of the best things about being a writer is growing your craft. In the last two years I have learned so much about what it means to be a published author. If I knew getting the story out was only the tip of iceberg. Marketing and learning social media was SUCH a learning curve for me. Doing events and panels, talking in front of crowds of people. As an introvert, I wasn’t prepared for the aftermath of having to go through those events. Then there are the actual stages of writing. The many drafts, the revisions, the years of work to get a story out. I never knew what an adventure I was getting into, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Thanks for stopping by today Mallory!
