When magic and war collide, a world hangs in the balance.
Beyond the edge of human sight, protected by dark forces that drive away the uninvited, lies a magical realm on the brink of war. As the fae of the once-powerful Clan Moraine fight to maintain a fragile peace, a traitor conspires to destroy them from within. Desperate times call for unlikely alliances.
A high prince carrying the weight of a kingdom and a young writer with special abilities.
A proud princess with dangerous secrets and a loyal soldier bent on revenge.
A fierce warrior with an impossible dream and a carefree seer who takes nothing seriously.
A not-so-human girl with unprecedented powers and a loyal warrior haunted by his past.
A stubborn guard brave enough to face the darkness and a broken prince trapped in nightmares.
Together, they will risk everything to stop the return of a long-forbidden magic that could tear their entire world apart. And along the way they might just find more than they ever hoped for: friendship, hope, and—most of all—love.
Exclusive interview with the author:
1) How did you get the idea for this book?
The entire world of my Darkly Fae realm was inspired by the first line of Rosanella, a fairy tale included in Andrew Lange’s Blue Fairy Book: “Everybody knows that though the fairies live hundreds of years they do sometimes die, and especially as they are obliged to pass one day in every week under the form of some animal, when of course they are liable to accident.”
2) Describe your writing space…
I have an office at home, but I rarely use it for writing. Almost all of my first draft words happen at coffee shops or cafes or (sometimes) libraries. So my writing space is anywhere with a table where I can spread out a bit, a chair that’s comfy enough to spend serious time in, and my tote bag full of writing essentials (laptop and/or Alphasmart, headphones, pens, notebooks, and index cards).
3) Do you have a favorite writing beverage/snack?
Since I mostly write in cafes and coffee shops (see above), my must-have writing beverage is something caffeinated. Currently it’s a half-caf soy latte. Sometimes I’ll add a shot of flavor, like hazelnut, and if it’s the heat of summer (read: surface of the sun hot) I’ll get a soy frappuccino.
4) What genre have you not yet written but really want to try?
I’ve always been a huge fan of mysteries and thrillers (and, in TV/film, true crime) but I haven’t written any of those yet. It’s really a matter of waiting for the idea that pulls me in those directions.
5) If you could have dinner with one of your characters who would it be?
Definitely Mel, Winnie’s best friend in When Magic Sleeps and the star of When Magic Falls. She’s no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is girl who I’ve always pictured as Sam from iCarly. Hanging out with her is never boring, and you never know what she’s going to say or do.
