After losing everything, all seventeen-year-old Thea wanted was to be a normal teenager. Instead, she was attacked by a mysterious creature she thought only existed in fairy tales. Now thrown into the unknown realm of Faey, Thea is forced to determine the difference between reality and fantasy, in a world ruled by a dark elite and a society wracked by intolerance and prejudice. With the support of her new friends and a mysterious dark haired, blue-eyed guardian watching her every move, Thea will discover that when it comes to Faey, nothing is what it seems. Will her courage and desire to save this new world from darkness be enough? Or will Thea be the next victim to fall to the dark whispers of fate...
Enlightenment will be $0.99 during the tour.
I know the way I’m describing him might make you wonder why I’m not talking about
him as something more than just a friend, but that’s the complicated part. You see, my
feelings for him are purely platonic, but I don’t think he feels the same. The way Eli
looks at me sometimes…the subtle hints…the way he grabs my hand and won’t let go,
I think he wants something more and I’m not sure what to do about it. And however
selfish this might sound, I need him in my life and can’t mess up our friendship, even
to see if there could possibly be something more to our relationship. What if it all went
“Hey Thea,” Eli had whispered into my ear. “Mom says that when you’re discharged
you’re coming home with us, period. No arguing.” I’d squeezed him back, gratefully
burying my face in the crook of his neck, unable to communicate how much he and his
family meant to me. At least they would be able to keep the loneliness at bay.
We sat like that for ages, me just breathing in his woody, musky smell, wondering how
I was meant to function again. He twisted strands of my dark brown hair around his
fingers and occasionally stroked his thumb along the side of my chin in a soothing
manner. I could hear his mother and father in deep discussions with the police officers,
and heard them say it was a miracle I was alive. Tell me about it. The only other person
who had been around was Eli’s four-year-old sister Leela, who kept coming up with
big, round, sad eyes, patting me on the leg whilst trying to get me to take Buggles, her
much loved toy rabbit. She had known something was wrong and had tried her hardest
to fix it in the only way she knew how.
