Half-daemon Envy Starr is destined to die on Midsummer’s Eve, still a virgin, on some crappy cult’s live-stream feed. With thirty days left to live, the chance to escape her fate and get some action compels her into her absentee father’s world of beautifully cultured cruelty.

Once there, she’s the object of a deadly game, slated to alter the Fae realm’s power structure. Worse, the rules keep changing, and everyone has an ulterior motive, including her dae-licious guide, Brennan. Under a geas he’s desperate to break, she can’t trust him, or herself.

Stupid Stockholm syndrome.

But unless she can come to terms with what lies in her heart, her unlikely survival will be a fate worse than death. For her, and the rest of Fae.

Excerpt 1:
I stabbed a stupid crepe, trying not to think about Kyle and Berk back in Vel. I was sure they were okay. I just wasnt sure Id ever see them again. Who was I kidding? They, and everyone else in the pub, wouldve written me off, and theyd be right to. I told you, getting snagged by a fae had a survival rate of zero. At least, nobody Id ever heard of had come back to tell the tale.

Despite my cheery thoughts, I wont lie, the crepes were just about the best thing Id ever eaten. I figured I could die happy with them in my stomach. The imp seemed pleased when I said so and asked for seconds. As soon as Id finished, the daemon tucked away his paper and lit a long, gold-filtered cigarette. The imp came back with espresso. I was feeling fancy and had mine with a twist.

Thanks for that with the golem… I mean, it was a golem…?”

He blew out a long stream of smoke. It was a gross habit, but he made it look worth taking up. Yes, and youre welcome.”

Uh, any idea why it was there?”

For you, otherwise it wouldnt have revealed itself.”

He didnt seem particularly concerned, but my mouth went dry. Had he been watching me? Did he have anything to do with the dae Calista had been screwing? And more importantly:

Are you going to eat me?”

He took another drag and raised a gorgeous eyebrow at me. Would you like me to?”

Yeah, I just about died. That totally wasnt what I meant.


Excerpt 2:
I scrabbled at the pitted metal. How was it even possible? It had no keyhole, just two thin lines like the halves had been snapped together and the ring for his leash. 

I started hyperventilating.

Pet…” The sing-song whisper almost made me piss myself it was so close. I jammed my fist in my mouth, keeping still. A twig snapped to my right, and I screwed my eyes shut.

A massive crash followed it, and I took off. In retrospect, that was my first mistake. I mean, my first mistake since Id tried to knee him in the nuts. I was racking them up like student loans otherwise.

The forest floor quickly smoothed out and become easier to navigate, but the trees here were spiky, twisty things crowded close together. They didnt look, I dont know, earthly. I had a bad feeling that Id somehow wandered into Fae.

It doesnt happen often, but there are some places where the veil is thin enough to walk right across. Usually it corrects itself, but Id told you this whole thing with Mica felt scripted. It wouldnt surprise me if he was holding a way open, funneling me exactly where he wanted me to go. I thought about it, but stopping and waiting for him to show up with his rifle seemed worse.

I stayed on the stupid path. Through narrow gaps in the trees I could see patches of mire and bracken, some clusters of stone, but getting to them would be a bitch. Mica s howl in the not-so-distant distance took that off the table.

I kept running.
