Heir of Lies
(Black Dawn #1)
By Mallory McCartney
YA Fantasy
Hardcover, Paperback & ebook, 456 Pages
April 21st 2020 by MM Books


“Hope was a dangerous thing. It could consume every dream and make them take flight, becoming wild daydreams in one’s heart and mind. Or hope could incinerate everything you thought you knew, burning you down to your core, leaving you raw and exposed for the world.”

Emory Fae has only known one thing—life at The Academy, a school for those who have special abilities. Following in her parents’ footsteps, the pressure to uphold their dream falls on her and one of her best friends—Adair Stratton. An outcast and feared by most, Adair longs to break away from the expectations dictating his future. With whispers of dark magic spreading across Kiero, 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 Faes listen to their proposition for a new treaty. 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 the most—the truth.

Their world is tipped upside down as unlikely alliances are made, and war ravages Kiero. Through the throes of betrayal, lies, hidden magic, and love, Adair is faced with a life changing decision. Will he fight or bow to the darkness within?

But, Adair’s decision will change the course of Kiero forever, setting in motion irreversible destinies for everyone at The Academy as Emory Fae rises as heir.

Heir of Lies is the first book in the bestselling Black Dawn series.

Guest Post: Road to Publication

Thanks for having me today! Like all authors, my road to publication has been a learning curve. I started to seriously pursue my writing career in 2016, and in 2017 Black Dawn was published. Soon to follow was the prequel Renegade as well as the first edition to Queen to Ashes. As much as I am thankful for the opportunities working with my previous publishing company provided, I am excited to say that Heir of Lies and the sequel Queen to Ashes are published by my own imprint, MM Books. It was a creative decision, and I’m excited to have many more books published under it!
