Book Tour "Black Dawn" by Mallory McCartney

About the Book
Title: Black Dawn
Genre: YA/NA Fantasy
Author: Mallory McCartney

The end of an Empire, the rise of a Queen

Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory's arrival she will discover she is the long-lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne. 

With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.

Some things are better left in the shadows

Excerpt 4
“I haven’t seen her since the meeting last night, Brokk, I can’t leave right now, we are alternating opponents with Emory. Time is of the essence right now.”
“Nyx is missing. A match is more important than that?”
Memphis frowned, noting his tone. He exhaled and shook his head. “She can take care of herself, Brokk…we all can. How do you know she is missing?”
Brokk filled Memphis in with the details he had been given. Memphis rubbed his face wearily.
“This isn’t the first time Nyx has gone venturing. She needs space—you of all people should understand that. You should be focused on what is ahead—helping Emory and the others get prepared for the fight. I need you to be focused, Brokk.”
Anger heated Brokk’s skin, setting his ears ringing. Swallowing hard, he said, “No. I will not stand back while Nyx is missing and you are too preoccupied to care! We should have scouts out, we should be looking for her. She was upset about you, and I’m worried about her.”
Memphis snarled at him, “You forget yourself, general. That was a command, not a request. You will forget Nyx, and focus.”
Brokk’s hands connected with Memphis’s chest, shoving him hard backward. Brokk was yelling now as his resolve cracked, “She loves you! And you used her to keep your bed warm until Emory was back. You use people for your own advantages, Memphis, and I’m done. Nyx told me what you did to Emory, manipulating her dreams. There is only one monster I see, brother, and he is standing in front of me. If you won’t go looking for Nyx, I will.”
He felt stupid for banking everything on her. His future. Their future. A month wasn’t enough time to prepare to take on the weight of confronting Adair, and with Nyx and Alby gone, depression hooded his thoughts. His body reacted before he could think anything through. Turning on his heels, he left the training room, not caring about the protests behind him. Not caring that Emory had been frozen in the ring as she took in his words. Memphis had everything he had always wanted—power, Emory, and a plan.
And it would kill them all.
Sweat dripped into his eyes as he stepped into the elevator. Air hissed around him, and a coldness ran through his veins, numbing his body. Numbing his heart.
He left the compartment and jogged down the twisting hallway, memories flying at him like bullets. Of an echo of a girl who couldn’t even look at him now, of a family long lost. Of a world that didn’t exist anymore. He barged through the door, slamming it shut. Running full tilt, he exploded in a flurry of emotion, four giant paws grinding into the earth, only propelling him faster. Scents overwhelmed him, and looking to the forest sprawling to the northeast, he galloped, leaving the hillside behind him, leaving the Academy behind him. He would find Nyx, and he would bring her home.
