two sisters. one dream.

C.M. Karys is the author name for all books co-written by sisters Chiara and Maria ! There has never been an adventure worth having or trouble worth getting into if not together. As children, plushies and Barbie dolls were the protagonists of our made-up stories, complete with all the drama and romantic subplots. Barbies have now been replaced by our computer screens, but crafting stories is still our favorite thing in the world. We're so grateful we get to share our daydreams with all our lovely readers around the world!

My reading tastes are varied. I'll give anything a try, but my greatest loves are fantasy books and romance. The spicier, the better! If you know me even a little bit, you know I'm a huge Taylor Swift fan and may have witnessed my shameless MÃ¥neskin obsession.

Whether hyped or underrated, traditionally published or indie, I am guaranteed to love almost anything with romance. If it's spicy, even better! Following me means you'll also get to see me fangirl over other passions of mine, like Taylor Swift and MÃ¥neskin.

After seeking refuge on the human continent and leaving her magical past behind, Asharaya takes on a new identity: Shara, an assassin blessed with dark powers.Prince Derron Argarys owes his royal title to his mother's coup, and although he has all the status and power one could wish for, he cannot escape the memories of the brutal death of the former prince he once called friend. Now the heir to the throne, Derron must set aside his memories and learn to rule by the Argarys words: show your power, hide your heart.But when a crone proclaims the last of the dragon-blessed rulers still lives and prophesizes Asharaya's return to Ilahara, friend and foe alike set out to find her, Derron among them. Yet he discovers in Asharaya not only a cold and beautiful assassin but also the princess he once knew. When the chance to rid his family of the Myrassar threat comes, Derron hesitates in dealing the killing blow, charting a new course that may see Asharaya's return to Ilahara to face her greatest enemy and her destiny as the last dragon-blessed queen.
