Petr lifted his hand. A silvery metal object rested in his palm, and a fine chain spilled between his fingers. “I suppose you recognize this.”
With a shock of surprise, she automatically reached for the familiar object. “Where did you find it?”
Petr let her take it. Her fingers rubbed its familiar lines and edges. “I’ve been searching for it all week.”
“I found it on Renn’s body this morning.”
“On…Renn?” Methusal gasped. Why had Renn had her necklace?
Petr’s frown deepened. “Nothing to say?”
“What do you mean?”
“Fine. This might loosen your tongue.” He shoved a scrap of paper across the table. “Read it.”
Methusal, I found your necklace in the ore deposits. I’ll have to tell Petr, but I wanted to warn you first. Meet me on the crop plateau tonight. Are you the ore thief? We’ve always been friends, so I wanted to give you the chance to explain to me first. Renn
The message left her speechless. “This doesn’t make sense. I’ve never been to the ore mine.”
“Mmhm. Then how did he find your necklace?”
“I don’t know. It’s been lost…”
“Lost in the ore deposits!”
“But how? I don’t even know where the ore mine is.”
“Don’t lie. Renn’s letter proves you’ve been there.”
“No. I haven’t.”
“Don’t play dumb, Methusal. You knew Renn was an ore mine guard!”
“No. I didn’t. I thought he was Sims’ supply room assistant.”
“He had two jobs!” Petr’s fist crashed onto the table. She jumped. He lunged to his feet. “Why were you in the restricted area? How did you get back there?”
“Obviously, you did. We have proof. You stole ore! Who did you give it to?”
Methusal gaped up at him. “What?”
Petr leaned over the table. “We know you’re involved. Renn found your necklace in the ore deposits. He sent you the note. You met him on the bluffs last night. He confronted you about your ore thefts, and you pushed him over the edge.”
When eighteen-year-old Methusal Maahr is framed for the murder of her oldest friend, she will do anything to expose the true killer and clear her name, including team up with her arch rival in the Kaavl Games, Behran. But all clues point to her guilt…and appear to tie into a conspiracy regarding the new peace talks with their oldest enemies from Dehre.
While peace looms on the horizon, Methusal doesn’t trust it. Mentàll Solboshn, Chief of Dehre, is not what he appears to be. Her determination to discover the truth soon pits her against the formidable Chief. Not only is he the best kaavl player in the land, but he is determined that the peace plan will pass. Can Methusal’s rare kaavl skills possibly outmatch him, and stop him from succeeding with his devious plans?
Methusal is ready and willing to do anything to protect her community of Rolban–even put her own life on the line to expose and defeat a dangerous political foe. But little does she realize the true danger may lie within her own community…
Kaavl Conspiracy is currently $0.99 in ebook format during the tour.
Excellent YA book
Kaavl Conspiracy was my first experience reading Ms. Green’s books. And it was a very pleasant surprise. I don’t ordinarily read YA but this one sounded good enough so I decided to give a try.
I’m glad I did it!
Regardless of the group age that the author aimed for with this book, it is a solid read, with interesting and believable characters. I mean, who doesn’t relate to a character who says she’s learning from past mistakes only to make a similar one. Right? Not to mention the supporting characters. I know this is only book one in a series of four parts so who’s to say if these characters will remain as supporting ones only. But as of now, they’re just perfectly fleshed-out.
As with any good Fantasy book, this one’s based on a totally different world but the author sets it up quite well with many details and we feel like we know it already, which makes it easier to navigate the book. To be honest, some readers may find the beginning of the book a little boring as the author depicts the world and builds the plot setting for the next installments of the story.
Finally, the action scenes are quite well-written and will keep you turning the pages to learn how the story unfolds. Kudos.
I recommend Kaavl Conspiracy to anyone looking for a light read but not one where you need to get rid of your own brain in order to be able to enjoy it.

I fell in love with writing in the second grade. My first romance novel, The Commander’s Desire, was published in 2008, and recently updated in 2013. The book is now available in audio book format through Amazon, Audible and iTunes. The Commander’s Desire has been given the accolades of “Top Pick” novel and “Reader’s Favorite Hero for 2009.” Other books I’ve written include Her Reluctant Bodyguard, a Christian romantic suspense novel, and Ice Baron, a futuristic/science fiction romance, packed with action and romance. Each has received a number of “Top Pick” reviews, too. I’m interested in a number of different subjects! As a result, I like to mix things up, and I write in a variety of genres. However, all of my books include an element of romance, because I love romance stories. Kaavl Conspiracy contains light romantic elements, and as the four book series continues, the romantic elements intensify for the main character, and for other characters, as well.
Kaavl Conspiracy is the first in the Kaavl Chronicles Quadrilogy. The next book, Kaavl Quest, will be published in July 2017, Kaavl Calamity will be published in Fall 2016, and the final book, Kaavl Conqueror, will be published in Winter 2017.
