About the Author
Dead fingers curled around an ancient crypt and a love of Celtic mythology were the two inspirations behind Cheryse Durrant's The Blood She Betrayed, the first novel in her young adult/new adult Heart Hunters series. Durrant grew up on an Australian farm where she chatted to scrub faeries and an imaginary superhero. She wrote her first story on her aunt's bedroom wall when she was five, but it did not attract literary acclaim. She worked as a journalist for 15 years before trading her soul for fiction. The coffee/chocolate/strawberry addict now lives on the eastern Australian coast where she teaches writing through Creative Dragons and is an avid WriteFest fan.

To save her kingdom, she must betray her blood…
Thrust into the technology-driven Earthlands via magical mists, Shahkara is forced to rely on Max McCalden to help find the ancient Elnara death lantern, her homeworld’s last chance of survival against the heart-devouring Taloners.
Max has his own problems – a manipulative billionaire father, a murdered brother – but nothing prepares him for this fugitive warrior’s razor-sharp talons and magical abilities.
Shahkara’s half-Taloner blood demands what she knows she can’t have – a human heart. She longs for love, but as deadly enemies attack at every turn, will her lust for Max destroy them both? Or will she find the strength to free both worlds from a threat more horrific than the demons that share her blood?
Raves & Reviews
“Urban fantasy/mystery/high fantasy at its best. Shahkara captured my heart and … will inspire young women everywhere with her skills, wit and compassion.” – LJ Smith, author and creator of The Vampire Diaries
“A book bursting with complex and likeable characters. Durrant deftly fuses modern-day and centuries-old worlds in a classic good-versus-evil action story… a tantalising climax.” – The Bundaberg NewsMail
“Unique and the makings of a bestseller. If everything Durrant writes is as powerful and compelling as The Blood She Betrayed, she is set to take the literary world by storm,” – Gothic Angel Book Reviews
“Brawls, wicked intentions, romance, destiny and magic collide in a novel that is sure to have you hooked until the very last word.
