Chaos Volume 1: Books 1-3

The first three books in the Chaos series.

Soul

Cara Kelly's life is going nowhere when she's lured to a faery festival. There she sees darkness and magic, madness and lust, and she comes out the other side with new eyes and an addiction to the fae.

When the faery who saved her life returns to her, Cara knows there's something wrong. Two souls exist in one body, and both need her, but to help one, she'll end the life of the other. At first, her mind is made up, but both souls know how to charm her.

As the days pass, it becomes clear that the faeries need a leader, and Cara finds herself sucked into a world where morals don't exist. The truth of her past is hidden in the magic, but all Cara needs to do is survive the king's coronation, then the fae will let her go forever.

But that's not what she wants anymore, and it's getting harder and harder to tell the difference between a king and a half-blooded solitary fae. Cara's losing her way, and her heart, to the fae, but there's still her life, and her humanity, left to lose.

Fade

Cara Kelly should have left the faery realm now that it has a king to rule all, but nothing is that simple. The real king is trapped in the Fade, and Cara's journey is just beginning. Guilt-ridden by the fact Brendan's soul was sacrificed for hers, she's determined not to desert him after his one pure act of goodness. Time is running out; even if she makes it past all of the dangers of the Darkside, a shade might await her in the Fade. Running from enemy and friends alike, she sets out on a path that will lead headfirst into danger.

Even if Cara makes it to the Fade, even if a goddess watches over her, she doesn't trust all of her companions, she still has to find a way home, and freeing Brendan could cause a war between the faeries she cares about.

And all the while, Chaos grows unchecked.

Queen

Three kings.

Two queens.

One heir.

Chaos will rule...

Chaos Volume 2: Books 4-6

Books 4-6 in the Chaos series (including bonus novella, Kings).

Usurper

It's been a year since Cara returned to the human realm with her daughter, and the fae have come knocking again. The game of kings is still being played, power is the ultimate prize, and Scarlet is an asset every court wishes to acquire.

As Sadler's next move is revealed to be his deadliest yet, and Scarlet's burgeoning powers begin to develop into something that can't be hidden, Cara realises that something more significant than a faery promise is needed to protect her family. It's time for her to build on what she started in Sadler's court.

But although the game is seductive, the price of winning might be too costly for a human to pay.

Blight

As the blight spreads, destroying the land, Cara's new subjects turn on her, and Brendan and Drake are no longer there to help her. The Darksiders thought she'd be pliable, or maybe even a miracle-worker, and it's not as easy to scrub away Sadler's influence as she thought.

But Scarlet isn't her only priority any more, and once the ceremony to swear her in as regent is done, it'll be time for Cara to join forces with the kings, find a way to stop the blight, and prove to the fae that she can be the leader they need.

It took a Darksider to steal the throne; it'll take a faery queen to keep it.

Kings

Set between books five and six in the Chaos series, Kings is a brief look into the lives of Drake and Brendan.

After sealing the rift, Drake hears word of his wife's sickness only to find that the cause is exactly what unites his enemies against him.

Brendan's journey across unexplored waters is only beginning, and if he finds what he's looking for, he'll owe a determined woman a throne by his side. But can he do it?

Whatever course of action is taken next, they will change their world.

Sacrifice

As a king's life hangs in the balance, alliances are made then broken. Only trickery can help Cara protect those she cares about, but when her enemies show their true face, she realises the truth: every distraction feeds Chaos. Cara's not the only one searching for a legendary treasure, not the only one reaching for power. The journey's not over, but at the end of every path lies Sacrifice.?
