Straight Reading from the Library: Kaavl Conspiracy by Jennette Green

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Jennette Green will be awarding a $25 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.



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…


I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this first book in Jennette Green's new fantasy series, Kaavl Chronicles, Kaavl Conspiracy, and am looking forward to the next book in the series. I absolutely loved the character of Methusal Maahr-- she's feisty, loyal, and just generally kick-ass! I am looking forward to recommending this book to the teens at The Library. Here is a girl they can get behind--she's not perfect, but she keeps striving for what she feels is best for her community.

The world-building is spot on-- I felt like I had really been there! The action scenes are very well-done and kept me turning the pages until late in the night!

The second book in the series should be out this month and I'm eagerly checking the online bookstore! I'm that ready to find out what happens next in the series. Good job, Ms. Green.

4 stars.


At the gravesite this morning, Renn’s only living parent, Liem, had stood as still as a stone, his features blank.

Grief still felt like claws shredding Methusal’s soul.

Stop it. Concentrate. He’d want it that way.

Renn had been pragmatic. A careful thinker, with unexpected flashes of wit. They’d been good friends for their entire lives.

She let the hot tears fall. Surely he was in a better place now. He wouldn’t want her to cry over him, either. If he was here, he’d probably say, “Life goes on, Thusa.” Then he’d smile. “Remember that baby whip I hid in your jacket? Almost bit your finger off. Count your blessings I’m gone.”

Methusal swallowed against the ache in her throat. Kaavl. Kaavl would deliver her from the grief. For a while. Maybe running would help, too.

She climbed down the rocky hillside, fiercely trying to concentrate into a kaavl state of mind. Soon she’d be ready for the Kaavl Games, which would take place in a few days.

As she focused, Methusal became kaavl; intensely aware of the late afternoon sun toasting her skin, and the sharp stones biting into her thin, multi-patched moccasins. Tall, thick tagma bushes dotted the plain, networked by thick gnarled roots that rippled across the surface of the flat, dry brown earth. A whisper of movement tickled her ears, and dry leaves rustled.

A whip beast was stalking a round, furry apte. Muted gasping noises interrupted the peaceful quiet.

The sounds of struggle, and of death.

Death. Again, thinking about Renn stole the breath from her lungs.


An innocent animal fought to live. She could save 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.

Kaavl Conspiracy is currently $0.99 in ebook format during the tour.

Buy the book at Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes and Noble, or iBooks. The print version of Kaavl Conspiracy is also available from online retailers.

I love to hear from readers!
