Blurb-
The year 2102--the world as it was no longer exists. Ravaged by nuclear war and polluted almost to the point of no return, Earth was dying. When the faeries came and brought their healing magic, humanity was grateful at first. Centuries of damage repaired in just five years, and during the course of that rehabilitation, they invaded. Quietly overthrown, the human race is now enslaved. The majority doesn’t even realize they have no free will. Branded, herded and kept only to further the agendas of the Fae Courts, humanity could be facing extinction.


But a resistance is coming…


Fianna Dolan has spent her entire young life preparing herself for an uprising against the Fae. One scorching summer night Fi's parents leave and never return. Thrust into a position of power she never expected, Fi struggles with her new position and the responsibility it entails. When a secretive fae man known only as Flint breaches the city’s defenses claiming he can help, Fi begins to doubt everything she's ever considered truth. As betrayals and deception come to light, will Fi want the answers she’s been seeking, or will trusting Flint lead to her destruction?

Interview with Sean:

Hey Sean thanks for coming by....
Can’t see that I really had a choice…

So what exactly is the issue you have with Flint? Do you have a thing for Fi? Is that it?
Listen lady, I don’t know how things go where you’re from, but Fianna is my cousin. I do not have a thing for her. *mutters, shaking his head* Disgusting! And as for the kitsune- I don’t trust him. He’s not my kind and I want nothing to do with him.  I wish he would stay away from my cousin. I see the way he looks at her. *scowls*

Why are you sleeping on the job? You have people depending on you, you know…
*Opens his mouth to yell, then clenches his jaw before sputtering* I don’t know what you’re talking about! I don’t sleep on the job!

Would you prefer to be exiled or executed?
*Shakes his head* Really? Where did you get these- *breaks off, biting his tongue, face getting red*- Executed, honestly. I would hate knowing my mother and the rest of my family were there in the city and I could never go back.

What did the Winter Court do to you?
Well, seeing as how they’re the closest Court to our city, we can pretty well assume they are responsible for murdering my father. Not to mention what they turned my mother into.. *clenches his jaw and then clears his throat* Let’s just say they deserve to pay.

Are you on a secret mission to save Fi's parents?
Honestly?! What kind of secret would it be if I told you about it?

Sean, you seem to be very protective of your family. Do you have someone in your life to call yours? That you can see yourself spending the rest of your life with?
*Nods* Yes, family is the most important thing to me. *Scoffs* I don't waste my time trying to find romance.. it's just not important to me..I've seen too many people destroy themselves over 'love'.


Fast Faves:

Fave color: Dark green
Fave person: My father was my favorite person but he was killed by the fae long ago.
Fave drink: iced tea
Fave comic book character: don’t have one, I never could stand those infernal things that Eirnin reads..
Fave hangout: any place outdoors

Thanks for taking time out of being secretive to be here.

Yeah, well...you’re welcome, I suppose.

and in case you all missed my interview with Lumi:


Interview with Lumi 
Welcome Lumi!! Or do you prefer Lulu?
Lumi- Thank you, Jaime! I’m super excited to be here. I like both names, so whatever you’re more comfortable with. *big smile*


Alright, I'm not going to hold this question in or slip it in somewhere, you and Eir.... That's totally happening isn't it? I can see that look in your eyes when you see and talk about him.
Lumi- *sputters* Um-- I don’t-- I… *chokes, whispers* I’m afraid to answer that honestly because I don’t want him to stumble on this and think I’m some creepy stalker… But yeah, I mean, I like him… I think… I don’t know. Gah.


Do you think you'll find your wolf friend?
Lumi- Ralphie? I hope so… I think Fianna, Flint and Sean scared him off. I’d like to see him again.


You know, I'm really happy that you now have a little unit to finally feel at home with...have you pranked anyone yet?
Lumi- *giggles* Not officially, no. I’m still plotting, though, so you’ll have to keep in touch and find out just what I do. *winks*


Oh! Have you tried coffee with creamer? You must! Vanilla Caramel is my faaaavorite!!!
Lumi- Ooooh, no I haven’t! That sounds fabulous. I will have to get my hands on some!


Did you ever finish Little Women? Who's your favorite character?
Lumi- Oh my, that’s a hard question… I did finish! A favorite… I’m torn between Beth and Jo. They’re both very much awesome and I find I can relate to both of them pretty easily… Rah. Please don’t make me pick just one! Pwease?


Did you start a new book? Have you picked out a book boyfriend yet?
Lumi- Yes! I found a book called “Flicker” by Kaye Thornbrugh and Nasser -- yum.
Fi- *wanders in, looks concerned* Lu, are you okay? I heard voices…
Lumi- *looks up and smiles* Hi, Fi! Yes, I’m okay. I’m doing an interview… *realizes that sounds uber bizarre and shrugs* Oh, Jaime, meet Fi. Fi, meet Jaime.


Well hello Fi!! Interesting you'd pop in during the good stuff!
Fi- *nods, waves a little* Oh, I’m sorry.. I didn’t mean to interrupt.
Lumi- *shakes head* Don't be silly. Join in! She can stay. Right, Jaime? *gets up, grabs Fi’s arm and pulls her back on the couch before she can protest or run off*
You are totally not interrupting! We'd love it if you could join us!
Fi- *smiles shyly and sits down*


How about you? You got a book Bf? I bet you do!
Fi- *grins and blushes* I’ve always been fond of Teddy from Little Women…
Lumi- *nods* Yes, I like him, too. *sticks tongue out and pants*
Fi- *giggles*


What is it that the both of you like to do together? No boys allowed type thing?
Fi- *looks at Lulu with a raised brow* No boys allowed? What’s that? We don’t get a lot of that around here…
Lumi- *throws her head back and laughs* I know! They just follow us everywhere, damn it. *long sigh, then she puffs up and pokes Fi* Oh! The book-porn thing was fun... Until Eirnin walked in.
Fi- *laughs hard at that* Yes! That was fun..but I thought it was even more fun after the demon showed up. *nudges Lu in the side*
Lumi- *flushes* The demon couldn’t look at me for like, three hours.
Fi- *pokes her* You scrambled his brain. *giggles*
Lumi- *ducks head, grinning* Sure I did.
Fi- *shakes head* Trust me. Eir doesn’t lose his cool with anyone but you.
Lumi- *blushes deeply* My, we’ve derailed, haven’t we… *looks all frazzled*
Fi- *smirks knowingly but decides to be nice* Okay, Jaime, what would you like to know next?


Fast Fave:


Fave drink:
Fi- My favorite drink is coffee, no contest.
Lumi- Well it used to be strawberry lemonade but now I think it’s coffee…


Fave food:
Fi- Aunt Ruth’s shepherd's pie.
Lumi- Does ice cream count? Love me some ice cream. Especially mint chocolate chip!


Fave place:
Fi- The park a few blocks from my house.
Lumi- At my house it was the tree I went to see Ralphie. But at Fi’s, I really like the family room on the second floor.


Fave color:
Fi- Blue.
Lumi- Again, used to be green, but now I’m partial to blue… A specific blue, like--
Fi- Eir’s eyes.
Lumi- *flushes, hissing* Fi.
Fi- *smirks* Am I wrong?
Lumi- *growls* No… Moving on!


Fave animal:
Fi- Hmm… *blushing*
Lumi- *snickers*
Fi- *blushes harder* What about you, Lulu?
Lumi- *giggles* I like wolves bestest. *makes big eyes at her* You didn’t answer, though.
Fi- *widens eyes at her* I don’t know that I have a favorite animal.
Lumi- Aww, c’mon, everyone has a favorite animal! *smirks* For example, I think you mentioned Flint likes baby chickens. Right?
Fi- *flushes deep red, throws her hands in the air* Oh, for Heaven’s sake! *is the color of a beet* Fine. There is a certain fox that is near and dear to my heart.
Lumi- *smirks triumphantly, then cups her hand and whispers to Jaime* The fox is Flint.
Fi- *sticks her tongue out at Lumi* Yes, yes, go ahead and laugh at me.
Lumi- We love you, though, Fi!


You two are the best thank you so much for seeing me today...I know you both have a lot going on right now...good luck to you both!!!!
Fi- *doesn’t hear her, still all flushed and telling herself not to smack Lumi*

Lumi- *ignores Fi* Thank you for having us and putting up with our crap, Jaime! It was lots of fun. Hope we can do it again sometime! *blows kisses*
