Fight for the Fae
The Mirrored Prophecy 2
Chapter One (Sneak Peek)
Earlier that day…
She will lose a love, gain a love, bear love and sacrifice for love. What does that mean? The Seer’s words ring through my mind. My grandmother arranged a meeting with Epan, the Highest Druid Priest and one of his Seers, Yasmin, to discuss my future that she has foretold. A lot has been going on in the last few weeks.
It’s not every day that you learn that your fate is part of a mirrored prophecy that will determine the fate of the world. Your first child will play a part in either destroying the world or saving it. That’s a lot for anyone to take in, but I have no choice but to accept my fate. I refuse to believe that I will play a part of destroying the human realm. Earth is as much my home as Faery is. Half of my childhood was spent here. My mother, Loredana Văduva, was a human Witch who died when I was fifteen years old in a Demon attack. Both sides of the family made sure that my brother Keegan and I spent time with my mother’s side of the family. My father Vamir Waldmar never denied my Witch side even though he is a full Fae. He is the Prince of the Light Fae to be exact, the future heir to the throne.
The marriage between my parents was arranged to create a treaty between the Witches and the Fae. Both sides have honored this agreement since my parents exchanged their nuptials. In the past two years, supernaturals have gone missing and the Witches and Fae have been working together. Recently, they have teamed up with the Shifters and the Vampires. We were able to trace the disappearances to the current leader of the Underworld and King of the Demons, Melomouzor. Melomouzor was exiled to the Underworld over a millennium ago because he was trying to develop a super Demon and take over the human realm.
Ten supernaturals, known as the Ancients, played a part in banishing him to the Underworld as a way to prevent him from conquering the human realm. He is on a mission to complete what he started and he needs my blood to help him cross over to the human realm. Any other day I would tell him to fuck himself, but he’s found a way to start bringing destruction to Earth. He’s had help bringing his Demons to the realm and kidnapping supernaturals.
We don’t know if the victims are still alive. We have no clue except that he must have been experimenting on the supernaturals and Demons. There was a large Demon attack where he sent his new enhanced Demons. These Demons were stronger, faster and we could tell that they had been enhanced with supernatural traits. We fought the Demons hard but most escaped. One of the Demons was able to capture my brother Keegan and took him to the Underworld. I want my brother back. There is no way in hell that I will rest until my brother is back from the Underworld, even if I have to sacrifice myself.
I leave the meeting that my grandmother arranged with Epan and Yasmin, stating that I am tired and want to rest before our other meeting that is scheduled in a few hours. I talk Colin into going back to check on his pack and the Legion’s progress with the Demons. Tonight’s meeting will be all supernatural leaders getting together to plan a way to defend the human realm against the new breed of Demons and keeping Melomouzor in the Underworld.
I have a plan. My amulet that hangs around my neck warms at the plan that I came up with. I can’t tell anyone my plan; if I do they will try to talk me out of it. I sneak into my room locking the door behind me. There is someone that I have to talk to and I need to go to sleep to do this. Since I have the power of the Fae, I should be able to dream walk to reach him. Before gaining these powers I didn’t know I had, I had never dream walked. Once learning the depths of my powers, I was sent to Faery to train to learn how to use them before having to make an urgent return to the human realm.
I should be able to dream walk without any problems. Having all the powers and accessing them should come easy for me. I just need to use them and not think so much. I have no choice. It will be up to me to save Keegan and the realm. I lay across my bed trying to get comfortable. This will only work if I fall asleep. I relax my breathing to slow deep breaths. My body finally relaxes and I doze off to sleep.
First, thanks to the author, Ariel Marie, for providing me a copy of Fight for the Fae to read in exchange for an honest review.
Now, I'm going to be brutally honest here... I loved this story. One thousand percent! Not that I doubted it wouldn't be a winner but dang, I think Ariel upped the ladder of awesome a ring or two on this one. I think I experienced every emotion a dozen times. And... I possibly wanted to choke the life out of a few characters, hug a few and toss a couple off a bridge... but really who's counting. There is a mix and a balance between them all that you get over the choking thoughts by the next page... well for the good guys anyhow. (Laughs)
What's got me all over the place... let me tell you...
Lina and Colin along with the Fae, Wolves and Vampires are still preparing for an incoming middle called Melomouzor, the Demon King. He is working hard to make the Mirrored Prophecy happen. And he needs Lina to make that happen. The human realm is the one that will pay the price of he is allowed to cross over. Lina is willing to cross over to save her brother Keegan who the demons have taken to the Underworld. That only means Melomouzor wins round one. But what he doesn't count in is that Lina being the sneaky little Witchy-Fae she is has a trick or ten up her delicate sleeves.
There are too many people counting on her. Her family, the other supernaturals and her future all ride on what she does when she agrees to crossover to save Keegan. Even if she is now "his" there is no way in all the underworld that she will let the demon king win. She will fight until she takes her last breath. Though what Lina finds in the underworld is not exactly what she expected.
As Lina uses her own determination and the fight inside her to turn the tables on the King. It's a start right? So when they cross back over to the human real of course it's to WW3 but Lona has no knowledge of it. As she adjusts to being back in the human world she learns the depths of loyalty her people have for her. Her handmaiden who is assigned to help her and the guards assigned to protect her are loyal to her. They truly see her as their Queen and not just in the "I was ordered to be here" way but in the "I will lay my life down for you" way. Ha. Didn't see that happening!
Score -- Princess 1 Arsehat King - 0
While they hunt for Lina Colin, Keegan and the Vampires shower the realm harder. She needs to be found, now. But in the meantime they are trying to get the humans to see they are not a threat and start to help when needed. So it's not unexpected for Colon and the others to be edgy. They're all ready to rip anyone and anything apart. So when the whore-de-pack also known as Malia sets her mission to make Colin hers all hell breaks loose again. The one time Lina manages to get away from the King and comes to find Colon she also finds Malia. Yeah that went over well.
So the unstable wolf inside Colon is on the warpath. More so than normal. When it comes time to "rescue" Lina from Melomouzor it's all hands and paws on deck. But what they didn't expect was her demons standing up to protect her. Things get cray cray... like Lina goes all crazy dark Willow on Melomouzor... (Buffy fans will get that reference!) He runs off like the little patsy he is. (Laughs hard)
So now the hunter has become the hunted... May the best bad-ass win. #TeamCoLina
I now am waiting not so patiently for book 3 of The Mirrored Prophecy; Future of the Fae. Which is coming soon!
As always, here is the story told in a different light…
And for the way I feel after this read..
Will Lina be powerful enough to defeat the Demon King while saving the realms? Will true love prevail during the Fight for the Fae?
