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

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

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.

Chapter One

 

Adair
The vastness of the sky consumed him. It always had, ever
since  he
was  young,  but
tonight  seemed  different.
The  churning dark clouds cast a purplish
hue, bleeding with the softness created from the moon. The stars shone between
the pockets, obscuring the scene and making it beautiful. Far below him, the
Ruined City laid in its grave, quiet and still, the broken buildings reminding
him of splintered  bones.  The
wildness  of  the
forest  beyond  that
seemed entrancing,  calling  him
into  its  depths,
whispering  its  secrets
to only him.
Adair Stratton tugged his button-down jacket tighter around
him, trying to block the wind from his lookout post. It had taken years
to build his kingdom to what it was now, but he was relieved for  the
hidden  lookout  posts
that  led  outside,
on  the  edge
of  the mountain, and, to him, the
edge of the world. Because it was here, and
only  here,  that
the  voices  started
to  ebb,  the
darkness  in  his veins
smothering  ever  so
slightly.  In  this
brief  and  flickering moment of clarity, his mind
wandered to the girl who was locked in
the  cells  of
his  kingdom,  waiting
for  him.  Emory
Fae,  the Princess of Kiero.
He  popped  his
collar  up,  shaking
his  head  and
sighing. Under the blanket of night, he could trace back to the man he
used to be, the echo of his humanity. Thinking of her, he could see the
splaying  of  memories
come  back  to
life  all  around
him,  of  his friends,
of  the  Academy.
And  it  was
in  these  sparse
moments  of lucidity,  he
allowed  himself  to
remember.  Relishing  it,
pushing back  that  yearning
for  destruction,  pushing
back  on  the
voices, trying to lock  them
away. And like every other night, he lost. The wind howled, making the
edges of his coat and pants tug upward, his hair standing on end from the
sudden chill.
His  boots  kicked
against  the  slick
mountainside,  his  heart racing
as  the  smooth
voices  filled  his
consciousness.  Adair,
this kingdom is yours. Make her bow, make her bleed and pay for what she
has done
.”  He closed his eyes for a
beat, digging his fingernails into his flesh.
Why  do
you  wait?  You
know  what  you
want.  What  you
have always  wanted
.”   Images
were  thrown  at
him;  so  quick
and enthralling, it swept his breath away. The inky crown, embedded
with  roses  and
thorns,  laid  delicately
on  top  of
her  ebony  hair. Memphis
Carter,  the  once
commander  of  the
Black  Dawn Rebellion,  bowed,
pleading  for  his
life  as  Adair
smirked.  His darkness  whisked
away  any  trace
of  rebellion.  Emory
was  by  his side as they watched the world continue
to burn, until it was only them. Always, for
them.
Adair  snarled,  then
said,  “Leave  me
alone.  Please.”   Their snickers
bounced around him, their whispers tugging at his heart. “Do  not  falter
now,  our  Dark
King.  You  have
come  so  far,
achieved  so much. The binds your
father tried to keep you in, you broke. The Academy kept you in, you turned it
to ash. We are a team. We know the desires of your  soul,
how  you  revel  in  watching
the  world  shudder
in  your  reign. You have always been more. A reckoning
force that no one can stop. Can never stop.”
He became still, his muscles taut. Opening his eyes, his
gaze fell  a  thousand
miles  away,  to
where  the  Academy
had  stood. Where a boy that once
wanted to explore the world and not shackle it had lived. He knew both were
dead now. Ice coursed through his body, spreading through his core faster than
he could register. His pulse
slowed,  the  roaring
emotions  he  felt
slowing  as  well. Darkness  encased
him,  pulling  him
down,  down,   down.
Locking him  away,  roaring,
snarling,  and  clawing
at  him.  A
slow  exhale escaped  from
between  his  dry
lips,  and  as
he  stood,  every movement was precise, a predatory
grace. Flicking his gaze below him
once  more,  and
instead  of  the
dark  beauty  that
he  was  met with earlier, the world around him was
bleeding. Dark, black blood gushed
from  the  mountainside,
thickly  caking  the
field  and  the Ruined
City.  Echoes  of
screams  filled  the
air,  and  Adair
was transported, reminded of his bloodshed, of his control and power. “Do not disappoint us, our King.”
The  corners  of  his
lips  tugged  upward
as  he  whispered
to the wind, “I won’t.”
Inside  he  screamed,
ripping  at  his
mind,  battering  against the
iron  wall,  only
to  be  drowned
entirely  by  it.
He  turned smoothly, walking back
into his world, each step anchoring him to his intentions.  Make
them bow and make them pay
. Make  her  pay.
He didn’t  look  as
he  stepped  off
