Mirah looks for the best in everybody. But her naiveté is shattered when her clan is slaughtered, and she’s dragged into captivity. Vulnerable and scared, she has no choice but to accept her kidnappers’ offer to join their sect of lethal female fighters.
Desperate to find stability in her chaotic new life, Mirah throws herself into training as a water mage and warrior. But as she discovers her unprecedented elemental control, her instructor warns that revealing her power will put her in mortal danger.
With the fate of humanity at risk, will Mirah’s growing abilities spell her salvation… or destruction?
A Voice That Thunders is the first book in the action-packed Voice that Thunders epic fantasy series. If you like strong women, intricate world-building, and stories of enduring friendship, then you’ll adore Cully Mack’s riveting saga.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I had a character, and an idea running around in my head. Both refused to give me peace until I put words on the page.
I have always loved the fantasy genre, and I have a keen interest in mythology. I decided to merge the two and created the Voice that Thunders series. Myth absolutely fascinates me (the older the better- think pre Egyptian, Greek and Roman). Yes, those titans, gods and beastly monsters were known to older civilizations in Mesopotamia and I feature them in my books.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The first character I created was Ammo. I love writing cocky, confident males, which is why I have a few of them. Ammo is skilled at pretty much everything and a complete risk taker. He often makes me laugh with his cocky attitude and flirty banter. He wasn't the right personality to be my main protagonists so I created Gabe and Mirah, two siblings who are younger and have room to develop.
The characters drive my stories forward as they are subjected to trials, trauma, and temptations. Conflict always brings out a character's true nature!
I think most of all I love writing Tur. He is complex, comes across as aloof at first, but he is one hell of a man as his story develops.
She rushed for the hatch, but halfway towards it, her vision blurred, and dizziness sent her toppling over. Nate caught her as she fell. He carried her to his quarters and laid her on the bed. The sandalwood and cinnamon scent of him clung to his blanket. That she recognised it made her recoil into a place deep within.
‘What’s wrong?’ he asked, pouring her water.
Mirah rolled over and faced away from him.
‘Are you ill?’
‘Just go. Leave me alone.’
He hovered for a moment before the door creaked shut. Drawing her knees up into her chest, she rocked herself until she fell asleep.
Faceless gods and monsters chased her through her dreams. She kept running, faster and faster, never looking behind as they breathed the heat of their disgusting sickness on the nape of her neck. Exhaustion gripped her and then Nate was there. Would he save her? He snarled in her face. I was wondering how much you could take before you break. Her body recoiled at the sight of him, and she awoke.
Nate hadn’t left. He sat on the floor, leaning against the door with his arms resting on bent knees, concern written on his face. He’s such a good liar, she thought.
‘What’s happened?’ he asked.
He didn’t believe her, and she didn’t care.
