Empyrean Chronicles # 1
By- Theresa M. Jones
Genre- YA Fantasy
When seventeen year old Lily finds her parents brutally murdered, leaving her broken and alone, she is determined to bring justice to the fairies responsible. Her quest leads her to infiltrate The Empyrean, the land of the Fae where terrifying creatures lurk in every shadow. But with a political rebellion mounting, bloody battles and foreign enemies stand in her way. Alec, a mysterious and secretive fairy, gradually becomes her guide and dear friend in the unfamiliar world, and restores her faith in love.
Disturbing secrets about her parent’s true identity are revealed, causing her to be more involved with the devastating fairy war than she can afford. Her vengeful mission becomes compromised and her growing romance with Alec wavers. She must conquer her fear of the unknown, ignore her grief, and overcome her growing list of enemies if she is to succeed in avenging her parents’ death. Or ever make it out alive.
Lily - 17 years old by the end of Enchanted Revenge. Small and petite, long very white/blond hair, and orange/light brown eyes. Sylph. She is funny, and sometimes shy. Though passionate about life, and people she loves. She wants very much to be useful, strong and independent. Devastated after the loss of her parents.
Alec- Sylph. Short, with blond hair and green eyes. He is 140 years old (early twenties in Fae years). He’s well known in the Empyrean for being one of the youngest guard to become a Royal Guard, and later a Realm Guard. He’s a skilled fighter. He has at least two tattoos, Lost- in fae, and a Harpy on his right shoulder blade.
Lynn - Sprite. Leader of the Rebellion in Muircadia. Well-respected and loved by the Rebels, who are extremely loyal to her. She is average height for a Sprite, with translucent skin, glacier blue eyes and black hair. Fights against the Monarchy with all that she is. Doesn’t allow anyone to get close to her, as she fears loss.
Rita - Nymph. Lady Minor -daughter of Lord Nettles, and next in line for Ladyship- in Ardennes.
Caramel skin, long black hair -often straightened, and brown eyes. Short for a Nymph, but taller than most other Fae. In a forbidden relationship. Believes in fairness and justice. Conflicts with her father arise, causing serious problems for her.
The Mortem - A group of five Fae, three Nymph, one Pixie, one Sprite, that are known as being deadly assassins. They are said to be rogue mercenaries, though some believe they work for King Mastikh.
King Mastikh - Pixie. Monarch of the Empyrean, ever since the Great Tribulation when he kidnapped and held captive Queen Norleen Volante for 200 years, and later overthrew and killed both King Coenraad and Queen Norleen. As the Rebellion continues to grow, year after year, he forces the Lords to increase taxing and send all magics and monies to the Throne, as a way to defeat the resistance. As such, magic is being depleted from the Empyrean and all Fae, and is leading to a steep decline in growth, and life.
