My name is Charlotte O'Dean, and I am a Faerie.
I didn't always know I was a Fae.
I once thought myself as a human girl, with human problems. That was all a lie.
The reality is that I am the daughter of the Unseelie king.
It is that king--my father--that holds my soul mate prisoner as lure for me…so that when he traps me, he can kill me.
I am the one who will ultimately have to choose whether or not to break the veil between the human and the Faerie realms.
Those are the kinds of realities, of choices that have taken my ordinary life, torn it apart and reorganized it, piecing it back together in a series of basics: go to Faerie and save the human world, or save Ivan and let the world perish.
Kill or be killed.
That is my nightmare.
But at least I'm awake, and in so much gray, it's the little things that shine brightest.
