Half Nychteride (“gargoyle” species), half fae
Special Supernatural Traits
Wings/flight, rock-hard skin, warrior genes, and ??????
The bastard son of an unknown fae (with the pointed ears to mark him as such), he was raised as an outsider within the Nychteride warrior camp, not unlike Ariel. Despite his mixed heritage, he rose to be one of the general’s top warriors due to his size, strength, and quiet but deadly nature. He’s also closed off and cagey, two characteristics that have proven problematic. His motives are his own, no matter the consequences, and his moral code revolves around one thing: what he thinks is right.
Or at least that’s how it seems….
Find and kill his father. Try to forget Ariel ever existed.
His father. Assholes. The fae. The return of his ex-best friend.
The more blades, the better. Might makes right. Soft spot for kids.
n the land of Daglaar, there’s nothing the Nychterides distrust more than outsiders. Even Ariel, the general’s daughter, can’t escape her mother’s dragon heritage that brands her as one. But when her best friend and childhood protector tries to kill her, she’s sent to the land of the fae to live in isolation with her father’s ally.
Then four years later, she receives a mysterious letter, demanding her return.
Ariel quickly discovers the message that lured her home is just a symptom of the trouble brewing amongst her father’s army—and Hemming may be the only one she can turn to for help. But how is she supposed to trust the man who’s already turned against her once?
In a race against time to save her father, will her unsteady alliance be enough, or will the boy she once loved prove to be the greatest danger she’s about to face?
