About the book About the book

Bestselling Australian YA author Lynette Noni returns with a new instalment in the ‘Medoran Chronicles’.

We all have to do our part if we’re to survive the coming storm.

Alexandra Jennings might be the hero of the ‘Medoran Chronicles’, but she would be lost without her three closest friends. They are her heroes and, like all heroes, they each have their own story.

Meet the real D.C. in Crowns and Curses and discover how she becomes the princess Alex once despised but now adores. Follow Jordan on his healing journey in Scars and Silence as he struggles in the wake of being rescued from his living nightmare. Walk beside Bear in Hearts and Headstones as he faces an unspeakable trauma while helping his world prepare for the coming war.

D.C., Jordan and Bear are the heroes of their own stories. Now it’s time for their stories to be told.

About the author About the author

Lynette Noni is the bestselling Australian YA author of 2018. Akarnae, the first book in the ‘Medoran Chronicles’, was published in 2015 and her writing has quickly won over the hearts of her readers who grow more captivated with every book. She is known for crafting compelling stories that appeal to devoted fantasy fans and general-interest readers alike.

She had finished writing Vardaesia, the final book in the ‘Medoran Chronicles’, when she realised she wanted to write more about Jordan’s story and the experiences he had been through. She sent the novella to her editor for his thoughts on how they could release it and soon realised there were two more stories to tell: D.C.’s and Bear’s. And so, We Three Heroes was born.

Lynette is currently deep into the final edits of Vardaesia, due for release on 24 January 2019.
