Description

'Prepare to have your heart and soul and imagination invaded.' Isobelle Carmody

'Sweeps the reader into an unforgettable world.' Sophie Masson

Lovers in Kaya have always died together, bonded in death as in life. But rumours of a cure are rife. A team of young Kayans will be sent on a quest to find the answer - for the very nature of love is at stake.

The beautiful but reckless Finn has never shied away from danger, and ending the bond means more to her than anyone knows. This adventure sounds thrilling, but Finn has always been willing to risk too much, and for the first time she has something - or someone - to lose.

Crown Prince Thorne, in the neighbouring land of Pirenti, has grown up rejecting the legacy of his father's blood, keeping caged the beast that lies dormant within. But the moment he sets eyes on the wild girl from the Kayan cliffs, his usual caution is thrown to the wind.

As the world crumbles around them, can Finn and Thorne cast off the shadows to find a love stronger than either imagined? Or is their true challenge to embrace the darkness within?

Praise for The Chronicles of Kaya-

'I can't recommend this book highly enough. Charlotte McConaghy has created a vibrant magical world full of emotions, fleshed out characters, kick-ass action and a bittersweet love story.' Goodreads

'No matter what I say, or how much I try to explain, some of you will just never understand that this isn't just a book. It is an all-encompassing feeling that has stormed into my life and I'm not sure if I'll ever be the same.' Morgana's Book Extravaganza

'That was the craziest ride I've been on for a while - I'm exhausted. Someone fetch me my Valium and a tumbler of gin! Not only is it full of bad-assery, but it's also heartbreakingly sad and full of eloquent expressions of love, suffering and the human condition.' The Urban Book Thief

About Charlotte Mcconaghy

Charlotte grew up with her nose in a book and her head in the clouds. At fourteen, her English teacher told her that the short story she'd submitted was wildly romantic but somewhat cliched, so she decided to prove him wrong - and write a novel. Thus began her foray into epic fantasy, with sweeping romances and heroic adventures, and as much juicy drama as she could possibly squeeze in.

Her first novel, Arrival, was published at age seventeen, followed by Descent when she was twenty, launching The Strangers of Paragor series, which is adventure fantasy for teenagers.

Soon she started her first adult fantasy novel, Avery, the prologue of which came to her in a very vivid dream. This novel didn't come together fully until she had finished a degree in screenwriting at the Australian Film, Television & Radio School in Sydney, and then all at once it seemed to fall into place. Avery is the first book in a new series called The Chronicles of Kaya. Its sequel, Thorne, will release in early 2016.

Charlotte currently lives in Sydney, studying a Masters in Screenwriting, which allows her to explore different aspects of her writing and indulge in her passion for film and television. She will, however, always be a novelist at heart, still unable to get her nose out of the books.
