Kaavl Conspiracy

About the Book by Jennette Green

Cover Kaavl ConspiracyFramed…

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…

Meet Tessendra ‘Tess’ Rockwood

Age: 16

Hair: Black (dyed)

Eyes: Blue

Favorite food: Mushroom risotto

Favorite possession: Mack (a hunting knife)

Following her mother’s murder, Tess fled her safe and easy life in the domed city of Eden to spend an aimless year in the rough ‘n’ ready Badlands. Here she changed her name, taught herself the local dialect Malspeak, and learned to hunt, protect herself and survive on her own.

Tess is independent to a fault, sarcastic, and brave. One reviewer compared her to Jack Bauer, while another felt strongly that even though she’s hella tough, she’s relatable. She isn’t afraid to throw herself into the fray, and once she works out who, exactly, she loves, she’ll die to protect them. She’s definitely flawed, but hey: aren’t we all?

In creating the character of Tess, I drew on the most headstrong and funny parts of my personality, as well as classic YA heroines like The Hunger Games’ Katniss and Graceling’s Katsa.

Dream Cast: Chloe Grace Moretz

Ah, Chloe, how I love thee. Let me count the ways! How about her hilarious turn as Alec Baldwin’s duplicitous niece, Kaylie Hooper, in the LOL-inducing 30 Rock? Or her understated take on Abby, the spookily shy vampire girl in Let Me In? But of course, the reason why we know she’d be perfect for Tess was the uninhibited badassery of Hit Girl, the pint-sized, foul-mouthed assassin in Kickass. Girl’s got sass and style for days. I’d love to see Ms Moretz take on the Trust, don’t you agree?
