In my actual fae series, they look just like us, which is why they can get away with so much mischief.
In my elf and other fantasy series, they can be diminutive like this and full of just as much mischief. There are no fairies in the Emerald Isle of Mists, but in an earlier book, they had trouble with them for sure.
The Magic of Inherian: Scepter of Salvation, Book 1
Princess Talamaya turned 18 in the human kingdom of Damar, just like her twin brother. Only when she comes of age, she must wed the king’s choice. When her brother comes of age, he’s allowed to sit on the council. But everything changes when a wizard pits beast and man against each other in Inherian–all because of the loss of the Scepter of Salvation and she must return it to their kingdom.
Princess Talamaya and her friends, Lady Kersta and Lady Mexia, must retrieve the Scepter of Salvation when her brother is poisoned. Visions plague Talamaya of a world beyond her own, of a destiny she has to fulfill. But the barbarian king is also after the scepter, and the black-hearted wizard who is trying to gain control will do anything to keep them from retrieving it.
She must free a knight from his madness.
Help a female dwarf escape from the dwarven mines.
Aid an Amazon fighting the Dark Elves.
Rescue even the barbarian king.
Save a crusty old dwarf from the wolves of Elan Pass.
And outwit the dark wizard once more.
Above all else, she must always take the path of righteousness.
Which is much easier said than done.
The Magic of Inherian: Mage of Monrovia, Book 2
An apprentice of the mage they had destroyed earlier, now threatens Inherian once again. But when Mexia arrives at Langdon to become school trained, she learns the school will not permit a woman to attend. But she must destroy the mage’s apprentice, and she cannot do so without the training. She must use the magic she has learned to discover a way to defeat the apprentice before it is too late.
Mexia has already done much more than most school-trained mages when she and her companions had gone in search of the scepter of salvation. But now one of the apprentices of the evil wizard they had destroyed, has stolen his spell book and plans to take up where he had left off, and she has to try and stop him.
Mexia believes the only way for her to defeat the mage is to become school trained like he was with the eventual goal of becoming a high wizard–the first of her kind in Inherian. But the current headmaster denies her entrance because she’s a woman. Though if she can get the former headmaster’s recommendation, she may attend.
And that’s the beginning of the trouble.
First, there’s the wizard.
Then, the immovable headmaster.
And then, the circle of misfortunes.
It all goes downhill from there…
The Magic of Inherian: Emerald Isle of Mists, Book 3
Prince Argon has taken Lady Kersta and her companions hostage because he needs them to help him rescue his sister from captivity and then he must return to his princedom and make his twin brother pay for his crimes. Kersta and her friends have special abilities that he hopes to use. But now they have a new problem. The prince’s sister is being offered to either one of two suitors, and they’re in the fight to the death to keep her. The man who holds the strings is a king who claims she’s his niece, but Argon knows the man is not their uncle!
Kersta can’t believe she and her companions have paid passage on the prince’s ship to take them home and instead he’s taken them to the Emerald Isle of Mists on a rescue mission and all because a soothsayer has predicted this will come to pass. Not only is danger all around them, but Kersta’s whole life is about to be turned upside down.
I had little one here yesterday so we were busy with arts and crafts, did a little yard work. I weeded, she picked up pine cones. She loves to do that. It was 80 degrees. Today–30. Too much of a change!
I was trying to do a little work on my taxes. It’s always a 2-3 day job.
But I need to concentrate on A Wolf’s Second Chance today.
Hope you all have a great day!!!
