In Everlae, humans are slaves to faeries. The Warriors, the half-faery, half-human concoctions, are trained to protect the faeries from any outer forces. When an ancient myth resurfaces from the deepest reaches of the kingdom and begins killing faeries village by village, Fraud Ghriaura and several other warriors are sent out into the forest to stop it before it reaches the castle. In the middle of their investigation, his group discovers a human girl. She’s loud, informal, and a burden for Fraud, as he is stuck with her until his investigation is complete.
As the seemingly invisible murderer approaches, the beliefs and duties that Fraud lives by are thrown into perspective. Lauren Fischer is reluctant to abide to the rules of Everlae; she will do anything to resist facing the cold eyes of the Counsel, which will decide her occupation in their world. Over time, her annoying nature and irrational thoughts become less and less so. He is torn between saving her and saving the world he grew up in. It is illegal to allow himself to care for her; her human blood is poisonous to faeries and therefore must be controlled. However, he just can’t bring himself to turn her over to the Counsel when the opportunity arises.
Her ignorance and his mistakes give the murderer a chance to destroy the kingdom, and Lauren is the only one with the ability to stop it. She’s determined to help…until the murderer reveals a way to save her only if she allows the rest of the kingdom to be destroyed. Slavery or freedom? The answer should be obvious.

Everlae

Submitted: July 03, 2010

Evelyn Fischer lived in an ordinary, one dimensional world- or so she thought. But one day she happened upon a portal that took her into the magical faery world of Everlae. A place of no return.
Fraud, a warrior mortally bound to Everlae's law, happens upon her. By the queen's orders, he must bring every human to stand before the High Counsel for an evaluation. The evaluation will determine the human's use for the Everlae community. If no use if found, the human will be put to death. Usually, the latter is the most common.
But this human is different from the others. Fraud can't help but to be drawn to her, to protect her. And when the time comes for her trial, he will make a decision that will risk both of their lives.
But there is a danger even greater than the Counsel waiting for the couple. A danger more powerful than anything either has ever accomplished. That danger will offer Evelyn a choice, putting the weight of two worlds on her shoulders. Will she chose right?
