Avery_cover FINALAvery (The Chronicles of Kaya #1) by Charlotte McConaghy
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 instead 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?

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

My Review:

Honestly, I am not a fan of how the book starts out. I don't generally like it when books are told through different points of view, but the story pulled me in anyway.

I loved Ava so much and I really felt for her character and the vengefulness she felt. The author gave just enough background story on all the characters which I was thankful for; I hate when you want to understand a character but don't know much of how they became the way they are.

Of course, there is romance. But this book is a great fantasy read and keeps your interest the entire time. This is saying a lot because I usually have a hard time getting into fantasy fiction, but not this one! I'm excited for the next in this series!

4 out of 5 stars!
