My name is Lisha; I live with my grandmother Allana and my mother Olivia; we are Dark Fae, one from the Unseelie lands. They say we are dark, cruel, evil creatures. I have news for you: we are innocent compared to the Seelie Queen. The Dark Fae have endured her cruelty for years. She will never stop coming for us, destroying countless lives in her path. It took me a long time to realize that Allana knows more than she tells me; she guards her secrets well. How many more people does she have to lose to the Seelie Court and queen Cassandra’s brutality before she learns to trust again.? I will never forget the night he took me from my home; I woke up in the middle of the night at fourteen and heard my beautiful mother screaming in pain, then nothing. I knew someone had killed her, but I didn't know who or why. I feel rough hands grabbing me, dragging me out of my warm bed and into the cold night. The air around me is unnatural, choking me and so very dark. I know we are still in the Unseelie realm. I can feel the land, trees, streams, and life calling me in pain. It's my home. My heart is breaking. I think I heard a voice say, “be quiet, don't scream or struggle, or death will come to you sooner rather than later,” Just before my emotions overwhelmed me, I lost consciousness.

Allana POV After the death of our Queen Belladonna over 80 years ago, the Unseelie realm had no royal bloodline left alive. We needed the alliance to help protect our way of life. We had opened my Unseelie Realm to werewolves, witches, humans, and a small brood of vampires who wanted sanctuary, choosing to live in peace in our realm. I stood in the shadows with Zane, watching silently as the Werewolf King, Damian, stepped through the wards I had placed around our designated meeting area. I touched Zane’s hand lightly before approaching him; Damian inclined his head toward me as he said, “It's a pleasure to see you again, Allana.” I smile before answering. “Thank you, Damian.” I had not expected the Vampire King to show his face as he and I had a dark history. A mocking laugh fills the air. Clenching my teeth, I turn, plastering a fake smile on my face, and say, “Thank you for coming, Andras,” He snarls. “Well, get on with it, Allana. I haven't got all night”. It hurts me to

Chapter One
Cassandra POV Gabriel and I grew up together. We make a formidable couple striking fear in the Fae around us. We have been lovers for 20 years and are not exclusive. I climb from his bed walking to the window. I smile, knowing he can't take his eyes off me. I flick my long white hair over my shoulder and turn toward him. “I will do it, Gabriel. I deserve to be Queen." He rubs his eyes tiredly as he asks, “Have you thought this through, Cassandra?” I shrug before answering him, “She is weak. You know she should have handed the throne to me years ago.” Gabriel irritates me as he says, “The Queen will be dead soon, Cassandra. Why can't we enjoy our life together until then?” I narrow my eyes at him and hiss, “I will not wait any longer, Gabriel. I want the throne now.” Gabriel's smile is smug as he says, “Saying you want something doesn't make it happen, Cassandra.” I snap as my anger rises, “I am not a fool, Gabriel. You of all people should know that,” He chuckles, a

Chapter Two
Lisha POV Growing up in the Unseelie Realm, I had no restrictions. I never had anything to fear, and I roamed our forest freely. Being one with nature is bliss. Our forests hold ancient magic in their trees, their roots entering deep into the ground allowing us access to their magic when we come of age at eighteen. I am fascinated with magic, wanting to learn everything I can about it. My mother and grandmother are my best friends. I never knew my father, and I don't ask my mother about him as I can see she still loves him and misses him every day. My mother practices elemental magic like most Light and Dark Fae as it is born into us and comes effortlessly. My grandmother, however, has a different outlook on life. Allana practices our elemental, ancestral, and dark magic. My mother has a sweet nature, and I rarely see her angry. She has beautiful olive skin, black hair, large soft brown eyes, and is slim, not as tall as my grandmother Allana. Who prefers to be called Allana and not

Chapter Three
Andras POV I don't think Cassandra realized how powerful Allana was. I laugh, recalling the anger on her face as Allana stormed out of the throne room, turning her back on the Seelie queen. Cassandra's blatant hatred for Allana will benefit both of us. “What took you so long, Andras?” I hiss as my anger rises. “You know better than to question me, Cassandra.” ”I need your services, Andras,” She saunters toward me, running her hand down my chest to the waistband of my trousers. “You must want something significant from me this time Cassandra.” “I will make it worth your time Andras.” “Don't fuck with me, Cassandra. I have a realm full of women more beautiful than you willing to share my bed”. Cassandra laughs sarcastically. “They don't have my Fae blood running through their veins, though, do they, Andras?” I know Cassandra realizes she has fucked up when I hear her heart racing. She takes a step away from me, “Do you want to die, Cassandra?” I stalked slowly toward he

Chapter Four
Lisha POV Memories run through my mind of the previous night, and I double over in pain as I remember the intruders that broke into our home and killed my mother. My breath hitches in my throat; what could we have done to deserve this. I gag, wanting to be sick; the loss of my mother consumes me. I sob quietly, too scared to move. I don't know how long I have been lying on the ground; the cold feels like it has seeped through my bones; my head is pounding, my body aching. I try to move my hands to steady myself when panic sets in; I struggle, realizing it is pointless as my captures have chained me to a wall. There is another person here with me, but it's too dark to see who it is. I hear shuffling behind me as someone tries to help me sit up. “Don't say anything to attract the guards. I have some water for you; it will help clear your head.” The water tastes fantastic as I quench my thirst. The voice belongs to a female about my age. I whisper, “Where are we, and who are you?. “

Chapter Five
Lisha POV Skyla and I follow Athena down a narrow lane; on the left are a dozen rundown cabins. Athena turns back toward us and says, “These are the servant's quarters. Under no circumstance are you to enter the palace grounds unless you are fulfilling the duties the Queen requires from you.” When we reach the last cabin, she stops, “You will share a cabin. You have this afternoon to organize yourselves. I will return at sunrise to take you to the palace in the morning, do not keep me waiting." Once Athena is out of sight, I slowly open the cabin door and peer inside. The interior is filthy; dried blood has stained the floors and parts of the walls. I turn to Skyla, shaking my head, and ask. “Where do we start?” Skyla puts her arm around my shoulders, laughing nervously to try and hide her fear from me, and says, “Welcome to what is now our new home,” I sigh, turning and walking toward the windows and opening them to let fresh air in so we can at least breathe. I look around.

Chapter Six
Lisha POV It's been two years since they took me from my home; rising early, I braid my hair and dress. Skyla starts to stir, eventually waking up, and dresses as well. Being half-human, Skyla needs more sleep than I do, and she also doesn't hear, see, run, heal, or have the same strength. But the advantage she does have because of her human blood is that she can lie. Fae cannot lie; we can avoid answering a direct question by wording our answer as another question which sucks, but straight out, lying is impossible until now. Skyla teaches me ways to lie every night, it's been a prolonged process, but I am finally getting the hang of it. We walk to the palace grounds every morning before going our separate ways for the day. I am walking along the hallway that leads to the kitchen when someone grabs me from behind. I struggle, knowing it's pointless to scream when arms like steel wrap around me. “Good morning Lisha; where are you going?” Fear runs through me when I recognize Gabriel

Chapter Seven
Skyla POV My mother had done the unthinkable. She fell in love with a human. I did not know her as she died giving birth to me. My father never wanted anyone else as he still loved her deeply. We had a happy life together, just the two of us. Since we lived on the outskirts of the Seelie realm, we didn't think the Seelies paid attention to us. How wrong we were. I never had any dealings with my mother's people. I spent more time amongst the humans that live close to the border. It also helped that my human blood was more prominent than my Fae blood and I fitted in easily with them. I had no idea that the Seelie were evil until the night they killed my father and took me to the Seelie Queen. It didn't take me long to see she was nothing but a spiteful, vindictive-natured bitch. If it weren't for Lisha, I know I would have taken my own life within weeks of being captured. We constantly drew on each other's strength to keep ourselves alive. I start crying as Xavier moves to stand besi

Chapter Eight
Lisha POV I wake up to Seline applying ointment on my back. Whatever is in it eases the pain. “Stay still, Lisha. You need to rest today. You return to normal duties tomorrow”. I drift back to sleep. I feel someone shaking me, waking me up. Seline is back. “I have moved your belongings here. You will be staying with me. I have the space, and I know it will be safer for you.” I smile in gratitude. “Don't get too excited, Lisha. The Queen has declared there will be stricter laws for the servants, especially where you are concerned”. The following morning after leaving Seline’s quarters, I passed two guards on my way to work. Suddenly one of the guards ripped me back by my hair, “You didn't bow, girl,” He says before throwing me down the stairs. I get up slowly, not taking my eyes off him as I bow, then continue on my way. The guards become more vicious any chance they get. Trying to keep out of Gabriel's clutches is nearly impossible. As long as I stay close to one of the sen

Chapter Nine
Lisha POV It has been four years since I have been a servant for the Seelie Queen Cassandra and her bitches. I still have no idea why I was taken from my mother and home and brought here. The older I get, the more I see the difference between our realms. Dark Fae is precisely that, dark-haired, olive skin, dark eyes, exquisite to look at. The Seelie has fair hair, fair skin, and blue eyes. Looking at them, you would think the sun had blessed them with their beauty. They rely only on their elemental magic, as they outnumber the Unseelie Realm by the hundreds. I wake before the sun comes up and walk to the castle kitchen to start my day. Seline is in a good mood this morning. I smile as soon as I see her. “Good Morning Seline.” Seline immediately puts me to work, ensuring everything is ready for when the court awakens. After finishing my kitchen duties, I go to the laundry room. I see Dana, Nadia, and Shayla approaching me on my way. I can't help wondering why they are down this
