Of course every reader has something different that they liked, so I could spend all day chasing my tail working that one out.
What I’ve written is a story with gorgeous fairy heroes who have their own powers and problems. There’s also the beautiful fairy world of Annwyn—but be careful because fairies like nothing more than to trick unwary humans out of their souls. These aren’t cute little fairies with wings and flower petal dresses. These fairies are the fairies of old, the ones that were once feared and treated like gods who hold the power of life and death.
Caspian is the hero of The Outcast Prince and he is a changeling.. A fairy born in the mortal which on its own would be problem enough but his fairy blood has made him psychometric. Here’s a little snippet of Caspian trying to explain his gift to Lydia without using the f-word (that would be fairy).
She turned to face him and asked the obvious. “Why don’t you sleep well in strange beds?”
She expected a response like too soft or too hard, or fear of bedbugs or something else innocuous. He looked at his laced fingers as if thinking hard. Too hard for the question. A chill brushed over her skin and drew the fine hairs on her arm up in gooseflesh. Around her the house was silent. It was then she realized that was what had woken her. She’d gone to sleep listening to the noise of the storm and the creaking and rattling of the house.
Now it was deathly still. As if the ghost was waiting for something.
Caspian drew in a breath. “Do you believe in psychics?”
That wasn’t what she was expecting. “Like fortune tellers?”
“No, like real psychic powers. People who can do things others can’t.” He glanced over. “Like psychometry.”
She wasn’t even sure what the word meant. “What is it?”
Again he paused and swallowed. “If someone is psychometric they get impressions off objects. I don’t sleep well because I know what has gone on in the strange beds.”
