Author: Mallory McCartney

Publication Date: August 21, 2018

“The time for Kiero’s reign in prosperity is over.”
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.

What was your Authors journey from story idea to publication?
 Renegade is my little story that could! Originally planned as a novella, once I sunk my teeth into the story, it turned into a full-fledged novel. Before the second book releases, I wanted to explore the back story, to show how Adair became the villain, how the world fell into ruin. How secrets and betrayals set characters destinies spiraling onto their path. It took two years to write but once the drafts were done I started the publishing process with Clean Reads, until it was released this August.
If Renegade became a movie who would you like to play your characters?

I love this question!

Adair Stratton- Cole Sprouse 

Emily: I love this casting! Cole is such a great actor and I love him on Riverdale. 

Memphis Carter –  Nicholas Hamilton
Brokk Foster- Cameron Boyce
Emory Fae- India Eisley

Marquis Maher-  Logan Lerman (with green hair and freckles)
