C.A. McCracken pens a riveting tale of [magic, obligation and love for one’s family in her debut book titled Kiara King and the Emerald Necklace. In this gripping tale, a numinous staff, ring and necklace cost a young girl her parents who are killed right before her eyes. Readers will be enthralled in this tightly woven plot that underlines love and value for one’s family.
In the Kingdom of Emeraldo, 12-year-old Kiara King is looking forward to her 12th birthday when she will be officially crowned Queen-in-waiting. She receives a gown like no other the day before the anticipated event as a gift from her parents, King Matthias and Queen Krystal. Little did she know this would be the last time she would see them alive. As the Queen allows her only daughter to try on her emerald necklace, armed men enter the room, viciously murdering everyone inside. That is, everyone but Kiara who manages to escape through a secret door.
Running for her life as fast as she could, Kiara finds herself in a seemingly different dimension from where she came from. She instinctively knew she must be in the Land Above with its blue skies and fancily dressed people. She is found lost and vulnerable by her mother’s twin sister Kathryn. In a rather strange twist of fate, she is led to unite with a brother and sister she never knew existed. Kiara discovers her parents’ past and solves a few mysteries through her aunt’s knowledge. She is now the Queen of Emeraldo, a young monarch hunted by her parent’s executioners. They are desperate to retrieve the missing emerald necklace that will complete the symbolic triad—together with the staff and ring—to finally have power over the land that is rightfully hers.
Will Queen Kiara abandon the waiting people of Emeraldo or will she return to fight for them and claim what is hers? Readers can follow this absorbing fiction fantasy that will keep them to the edge of their seats in Kiara King and the Emerald Necklace.
