Everyone that Kaya loves is in danger and she is the only one that can protect them… but it requires a huge sacrifice. A heart-pounding journey of self-discovery, Nocturne is the transformative second installment of the Nightmusic Trilogy.
I am hunted. A pawn in a vicious game.
The only way I can protect the ones I love...
is to disappear.
Finally free of her father, Kaya has the one thing that keeps her heart beating—Luke.
Blissfully content in his arms, everything seems perfect...until their world is shattered by a deadly invasion. When an old ally comes to the rescue, Kaya wants none of it. She is devastated to learn the identity of her attacker, and that she must do something truly heartbreaking if she wants to save the ones she loves. Sacrificing everything and sinking into bottomless sorrow, Kaya finds solace in an unlikely friend—one who shows her a different kind of love, and helps her discover an inner strength she never thought possible.
Praise for Heather McKenzie and the Nightmusic Trilogy
“The suspense is nail biting…” In'Dtale Magazine
“Serenade has a slow burn of a start, but the backstory is important… The writing is well executed, particularly the descriptive elements, something in which I feel the author truly excels. The scenes and action following the kidnapping are fantastic, with enough unexpected twists to keep the pages turning. I'd highly recommend this book to lovers of good, traditional YA with a unique plot.” Readers' Favorite, 5-star review
“WOW, what an awesome and refreshing read full of love, hate, surprises, mystery, loyalty and everything in between. This author truly has a knack for story-telling and spinning it just enough to keep you guessing and needing to read more. This is a spectacular debut read and I highly recommend it.” Jenny Bynum, Black Words White Pages
“Female heroine. Check. Adventure with high stakes. Check. Strong and powerful story with intrigue and secrets. Check. I loved nearly everything about this story. It had everything I hope for and love in a YA book. The writing style and powerful way the author can showcase emotions makes me eager to read anything McKenzie will write next- fiction, nonfiction, picture books, or anything.” Rachel Barnard, Author
“Part adventure, part coming of age and completely absorbing as we are taken into the wilds of the Canadian mountains… a tale that is eye-opening and entertaining and fresh in its telling!” Dianne's Reviews—Goodreads”
McKenzie is a promising author that is going to give readers a powerhouse trilogy that is sure to be successful.” Danielle Roberts, The Pluviophile Reader”
It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a romantic suspense this much… probably since my last Sandra Brown and that is saying something. ESPECIALLY for a first book from an author. Are you kidding me?!? THIS is what you're coming out of the gate with? I'll be stalking library shelves indefinitely for this author - she had me hooked after the first page. Lifetime fan. SO good.” Julie Brandenburg, Little Miss Bookmark”
