“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.

Now on to the excerpt!

Twenty years earlier, Sarthaven (The Ruined City)

The note shook so hard in her grasp, Nei couldn’t focus on the words splayed before her. With a racing pulse and sharp ringing coursing through her ears, she crumpled the paper beneath her white knuckles. Breathe. The words were branded like hot iron to her flesh, her entire being flowing with them. Her hope consumed by them.

She sat at her desk like any other day. The afternoon light poured through the window catching the various objects scattered throughout, from the copious number of books to the overwhelming stack of lists and notes. A hard glint reflected off her favorite weapons that lay around the room. The office was one place of solace in a world of unrest.

Golden hair spilled forward as she dropped her face into her hands, covering her eyes, and her senses were diluted and muffled, if only for a second. Her father’s voice filled Nei’s mind as clear as day in her reprieve, “You will not marry for love, my sweet girl, but
you will sacrifice yourself wholeheartedly so this world may see a day where peace ensues and this war eases itself into the pages of our history.”

Her eyebrows furrowed. It had been one year since their arranged marriage. Their world had quaked and shook with the defiance of it. A wild woman from the Shattered Isles, betrothed to the prince. Reactions had been worse than expected. When Nei Runnard had been scuffling around with her sisters and sailing the coast, following her heart wherever adventure was, Roque Fae was being groomed in the politics of his court and in this country. Nei had almost laughed when her father sat her down and told her he had sealed her fate.
