What would you do if your sworn enemy was also your soulmate?

The heart-wrenching final chapter in The Chronicles of Kaya trilogy, following on from Avery and Thorne.

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

‘The Chronicles of Kaya sweeps the reader into an unforgettable world’ Sophie Masson

The kingdom of Kaya has been overthrown by a dark power. Trapped inside the dangerous capital, rebel leader Isadora fights the only way she can – by hunting those more monstrous than she.

Falco is the exiled emperor of a nation in tatters. But fate demands he abandon the mask that has long disguised his true nature, and rise to meet his sworn enemy, the deadly Sparrow.

No one is safe from the evil sweeping the lands, not even those in the far north strongholds of Pirenti. Crown Prince Thorne is plagued by ghosts, Lady Roselyn by the past. With his land and loved ones under threat, King Ambrose must find the strength to show his people a new way of life, or allow the nation’s legacy of violence to consume them.

As world’s end draws near the undeniable power of the bond ties Isadora and Falco together. The death of one means the death of both. But Isadora has never before surrendered to fate. She is determined to break free and choose her own path, no matter the cost.

The heart-wrenching final chapter in the Chronicles of Kaya trilogy.

Praise for The Chronicles of Kaya:
‘Not only delivers surprises, suspense, a magical but dark world and great action, but also a moving and powerful exploration of love, loss and second chances.’ Sophie Masson

‘Every fan of the Graceling Trilogy will swoon over this book.’ Patrycja, 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

‘I devour each book in less than two days.’ Kenzie, Chasing My Extraordinary

‘The Chronicles of Kaya is a MUST read for all the fantasy lovers, and I would also recommend it to romance and adventure readers. It has everything to be your next favourite series, so please go and give it a try, you won’t regret it!’ Azahara Arenas, Living in Our Own Story

‘Wow – that is what comes to mind when I think of this book. With amazing characters and great details, you are pulled into the book. Every page pulls you deeper and deeper, until you find you have read the entire thing. I found that they can be read as standalone stories. Definitely a must-read series!’ M Pollard

‘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, Goodreads

‘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.’ Kathylill, Goodreads

Praise for Isadora

Charlotte McConaghy is a genius with words! I absolutely love this series and the whole trilogy is a highlight for me. Not just a highlight of this year. No it's a highlight in all the books I've ever read.

Jenny, Goodreads

You. Guys. This series. What in the hell have I even gotten myself into. I just innocently started Avery about a week ago and now here I am, suddenly done with the entirely trilogy. I legitimately feel like I have had part of my heart ripped out and crushed but I’m also feeling so in love. These characters and their journeys have quickly and easily become embedded in my heart and will never leave. I honestly can’t wait until I can re-read them all again.

Arielle, Goodreads

McConaghy has created one to the best and most interesting damaged heroes I've ever read
