“You lived your entire life feeling like half of
you was missing. Fight for the missing part. Fight for this.”
 

Emory Fae has abandoned everything she thought she knew about her previous life
on Earth. Stepping up to her role as Queen of Kiero she makes a startling
sacrifice- feigning her allegiances to Adair Stratton, the man who murdered her
parents and casted Kiero into ruin. Emory’s memories slowly piece together, and
she soon realizes the Mad King may not be all he seems— and the man who was
once best friend, may be fighting beneath the surface. 

With the King’s attention on her, can she buy
Black Dawn Rebellion enough time to recuperate their forces? And when the times
comes, will she be able to kill Adair, ending his tyranny and rising herself as
the rightful Queen? Fighting to hide her secret, Emory navigates the brutal
trials of the Mad King, trying not to lose herself in the process. 

Sequel to Black Dawn, now a bestselling series,
the sparks are ignited, as Emory learns the cost of freedom, and her title.
Will the rebels unite in time? A sinister force has spread across the land,
stripping everyone bare- their betrayals, their secrets, their intentions. But
above all, what will their decisions cost? By refusing to give in to the
darkness, will Emory rise as Queen?

Renegade and Black Dawn will be available in the
following #Vancouver area locations : Chapters Burnaby, Indigo Surrey, Chapters
Coquitlam, Indigo West Vancouver, Indigo Granville (2505 Granville St) and

“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.

Emory Fae enjoys
leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome
soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked
away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world
of Kiero, and bringing Emory back she will discover she is the long lost heir
to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic
role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.

With both men being
darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long
dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans,
love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.

Some things are better
left in the shadows.

Exhaling, the prince took him off guard as he lifted his eyebrow. “What I
don’t understand is how the Faes have achieved such loyalty. What did they do?”

He chewed his bottom lip as he hopped over a fallen tree
trunk. He looked to Marquis. “They were the dreamers in a time when culture,
creativity, and equality were being butchered. The Academy was the foundation
of that dream, for desolates, for the people with weaker abilities. For
everyone. The people of Kiero followed Roque because they can’t fear him, they
can only admire him. How brave he was for standing up to his father, for
breaking free of his reign to start his own.”

Marquis chewed his lip. “It sounds like you have a different
opinion of him.”

He threw out his hands. “I was born at the Academy. Raised
in the Academy. Who am I to doubt the intentions of the Faes? They are
practically family.”

Shrugging, Marquis cooed, “Sometimes it is the ones closest
to us that betray us first.”

My Review:

From the very first page, Mallory McCartney throws us into an action and fast paced plot. You learn about the different characters right away, since the chapters are told in multiple view points. At first, I was a little confused, but after a few chapters, I was sucked right in. Brokk, being my favorite, could turn into a wolf! He had me at wolf!

The character were all interesting, and I loved seeing how they were all connected. There is magic, betrayal and mayhem, all spiraled, blended and twisted in a new type of fantasy world. The writing was addicting, and the end had me wanting more.
