I’m free!

My people were locked inside the dryad knowe for over two centuries, but now that magic has returned to the mortal world, we’re finally free. Granted, I’m not that old. I’ve only been alive for twenty-one of your mortal years, but I spent hour after hour watching Jasmine from beyond the veil. Watching her. Falling in love with her. And she never knew.

I was there when she came to the forest to hide in the treehouse and cry because her father was such a douche. And I was there when some creep named Spider broke her heart. What kind of name is Spider anyway? And I was there when her spoiled sister tried to ruin her reputation. But no matter how much I wanted to comfort her, that damned veil kept us apart. No more, though. The veil is gone and I plan to protect Jasmine from anyone who would try to harm her.

There’s only one hitch…Queen Lasair. She doesn’t care for mortals and doesn’t care if they perish because of the magic. In order to help my girl, I have to be rather sly about it and dodge Conall, the Queen’s guard. He’s in love with Jasmine’s sister Heather (the mean, beastly girl) and would do anything to prove his love including sabotaging my plans. But I know something he doesn’t. When Jasmine finally accepts what she is, she’ll be able to control more magic than any other mortal alive. I can’t wait.
