My friends were stolen by the Fae. Their presence has been all but erased from the internet, and their absence was explained away to family and friends. Seeing the minds of grief-stricken parents completely altered drove home how dangerous the path I’m traveling is. Still, I won’t give up until I locate Elia and Roan. Even if the other member of our found family, Glenn, is too scared to act. Digging further into their disappearance, I use my magic and connections to seek knowledge and forge a relationship with the mysterious beings that have terrified me my entire life. Astral travel has opened my universe up. The teachers I’m forced to trust will be my ruin or a crash course in survival in the deadly realm I’m determined to breach.



I never imagined the silly witch with traces of Fae blood would end up being my mate. I’ll protect her at all costs, even against herself. Bickering with the woman who comes into a power that rivals my own wakes more than my dormant emotions. Fire licks at my skin and races through my veins, engulfing us and fueling our muscles. The child of the Holly King has died, and the Summer Court will soon follow. I’m not sure the realm on the brink of civil war and destruction should be saved. If my mate doesn’t take the place of the fallen, the lands will go dark. Threatened by our rise, we’re attacked by dark powers who have no idea the depths I’ll sink to in order to keep what’s mine safe.

Interview with Shyla Colt

How did you become involved with the subject or theme of your book?

I’ve been interested in the fae for a long time. This was a chance to show off some of the information I’ve gathered over the years.

What were your goals and intentions in this book, and how well do you feel you achieved them?

I wanted to tell a story of friendship, sacrifice, and magic. I think I did a fairly good job of doing that.

What was the hardest part of writing this book?

The hardest part was choosing a magic system and which fae lore I planned to follow and sticking to it. I had so many things in mind, but I had to whittle it down to what was feasible.

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

I loved being fully immersed in fantasy, where anything is possible.

Where there alternate endings you considered?

In this book, there weren’t. When I started the outline, I already knew where I wanted to end this portion of the series.

Can you share some stories about people you met while researching this book?

I didn’t meet any new people when I researched, but I discovered some interesting books. I had a lovely collection of stories about fairies from different parts of the world I love to read.

What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

I love reading Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance, just to name a few.
