One Fae in the Grave : Life isn’t going exactly as planned. I’ve been kicked out of the Crimson Court and forced to move in with a grumpy and irritating (and gorgeous) shifter until I can prove to Balor that I belong with the fae.
Luckily, I have a plan. I’m going to take on Nemain, the dangerous fae who wants to steal Balor’s Court away from him. If I can stop her, maybe Balor will forgive the terrible things from my past.
But things take a turn for the worse when Nemain wields an ancient cursing stone against the entire Crimson Court. She’s cursed every fae in London to die, including Balor. If we don’t find a way to reverse it—and fast—everyone I know and love will end up in the grave.
“I ground my teeth together. “Fionn tried to overthrow him. He set Balor up, got him arrested by the human cops. Tiarnan helped him. And then Fionn took the throne, but not before sentencing me to die. Tell me, Aed. Was Fionn right in what he did? How would you have responded if he’d done all that against you? If he’d sentenced someone you care about to die?”
Aed pressed his lips together. “Balor must not care all that much about you if he banished you from Court.”
Pain shot through my gut. That one hurt. That one really hit hard.
I stepped up closer to Aed, lifted my chin. “Don’t make this personal.”
“Or what?” Aed sneered. “You going to take out every Fianna leader who doesn’t perform according to your standards? Because I hate to tell it to you, love, but the Fianna live by their own rules, for their own people. We might be a part of the Crimson Court, but we answer to ourselves.”
“For now,” I said. “Keep pushing things, and I doubt you’ll have your independence for long.”
He let out a low chuckle. “You’re on the losing side in this, love. Nemain is going to win. And then she’s going to end this shit alliance with shifters, vampires, and fae. But you wouldn’t want that, would you? Not with that filthy blood running through your veins.”
