Avery is a sweeping, romantic fantasy novel about finding the courage to love against all odds.

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

'Beautifully written and grippingly told.' Sophie Masson

The people of Kaya die in pairs. When one lover dies, the other does too. So it has been for thousands of years – until Ava.

For although her bondmate, Avery, has been murdered and Ava’s soul has been torn in two, she is the only one who has ever been strong enough to cling to life. Vowing revenge upon the barbarian queen of Pirenti, Ava’s plan is interrupted when she is captured by the deadly prince of her enemies.

Prince Ambrose has been brought up to kill and hate. But when he takes charge of a strangely captivating Kayan prisoner and is forced to survive with her on a dangerous island, he must reconsider all he holds true . . .

In a violent country like Pirenti, where emotion is scorned as a weakness, can he find the strength to fight for the person he loves . . . even when she’s his vengeful enemy?

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
