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?

Amazon Paperback-
Createspace (Paperback)-


For those of you who are tired of those books where he, as I use a good friends words "tweaked her business" this one here is great. It's a welcome change for me, without all the heavy humping and what nots. There IS romance but it's not the center of attention here. More like a second layer.

Fianna is a young girl who her parents entrusted to watch over the house and the rest of the family while they go on a searching mission. She's a very stubborn girl but she has a heart of gold and won't take no s*** off of anyone who tries to threaten herself and her family, especially her little brother, Eirnin.

Eir is a sweet 16 year old boy who has some secrets himself he isn't ready to let his sister in on yet.

GAH, there's so much to talk about, yet I'm afraid that I'll spoil it for you lot. Which is something I really DO NOT want to do. That would be an injustice.

However, I will say this. I can't believe that they are gone. I don't know where they went or if they were taken or who took them at all. I wish I knew. I can't wait to know. Another thing, apparently he isn't dead, thank goodness one of them is still alive. OH yeah, he is an A-hole. I'd like to harm him myself...if only book teleportation was available.

FLINT. Nuff said there.

A very well executed debut novel. Well written, well explained, but not over explained. I will definitely read this again. I can't wait for the next in this series because I have a serious cliffhangover and it's not cool at all.

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*
