Editorial Reviews


A 2019 Book Excellence Awards Finalist "Led Astray by Karlianna Voncil is a refreshing crime thriller. Emily Burns's life is cut short at just 16 years old. She disappeared 6 months before and now her body has been found in Sweet Valley, one of the seedier neighborhoods. Detectives van Daan and Martinez need to find her killer and in their hunt for clues and information, they stumble over Daisy Evans. Just 13 years old, she may have been the last one to see Emily alive but, on interrogation, the story she tells is unbelievable, dark and twisted, and it poses one question - just who can you trust? 

Led Astray: A Crime Thriller by Karlianna Voncil is a YA coming of age story with a sting in the tale, something different. Although initially this story did not grab me from the first page, as I continued to read I found myself inexorably drawn into a dark and twisted tale to the extent that I didn't want to put the book down. It isn't a long story but it is involved, with flashbacks that add depth, teasing the story out gradually. There is violence but it fits in with the story and is not over the top or unnecessary. The theme of the story is actually quite sad; forgotten and abandoned children just trying to make their way in life. The characters are really well developed, real people you can empathize with and relate to. The pace is good and there is plenty of action."-Anne-Marie Reynolds,
Readers' Favorite 

Led Astray by Karlianna Voncil is an engaging crime thriller featuring a troubled teenager named Daisy. With a mother that can hardly be counted on and a father in jail that she has never even met, Daisy's life is far from perfect.Longing for companionship, Daisy falls in with a bad group of kids and what was meant to be an innocent friendship escalates into a dramatic and unexpected murder.Author, Karlianna Voncil, does a masterful job at writing the characters and dialogue. They are extremely realistic and beautifully convey the emotions in the scene. In addition, the relationship between Daisy and Avia is equally compelling. Readers will be torn between rooting for and against their relationship because of their willingness to do anything for each other.Overall, this book is a thoroughly suspenseful read that will keep you engaged from start to finish.- Review by the Book Excellence Awards

My name is Karlianna Voncil and I am pleased to enter the world of publishing with my coming of age crime fiction, Led Astray: Part I of the Avia Chronicles. As the first in a trilogy of young adult thrillers, my dream has been to tell engaging, enthralling stories that keep readers coming back again and again.

I have been writing stories and poetry since I was nine, and my debut novel is the result of four years of writing followed by two years of searching for a publisher to give my writing and characters a chance. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English from Texas Tech University and a Master of Arts in Teaching from West Texas A&M University, and for the past four years I have been a public school teacher. When I am not writing or reading, I volunteer, go to the movies, and spend as much time with my family (and our many assortment of animals) as possible.

A seventh-generation Texan, I was born and raised in the Panhandle, and this is the setting of my crime series. The Panhandle , with its rolling pastures and golden grasses, is home to exquisite sunsets and friendly communities. While that may not seem like the ideal background for a detective series, my hope is that readers will be able to appreciate the natural scenery in juxtaposition with the complexities of the characters and their choices.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my book. I love getting feedback from readers, so visit my website,, and let me know what you think! You can also subscribe to receive notice of upcoming titles and other developments. Thanks again, and now--let's get to reading!
