A FAERIE REVOLUTION . . .
After risking her life in the mortal world, the faerie princess Elora returns home to incite a revolution. Allied with the Bright Queen, Elora rallies her people for a battle aimed at overthrowing her mother, the Dark Queen. While some question their ability to win, Elora senses victory, knowing she has a secret weapon: Taylor, the human boy she loves, and a motley crew of his school friends, each armed with a skill that can turn the tide of the coming battle.
A MORTAL SACRIFICE . . .
But then Elora’s supporters in the Dark Court turn on her, believing she has forsaken them in favor of humans. When the Dark Queen kidnaps two of her human friends, Elora must mount a daring rescue mission to free them before her mother offers them up as a sacrifice.
As gently as I could, I pulled her into me. Still, even with all my gentleness, it felt like a collision of some sort.
A force of nature.
Isn’t that what she’d called me? Here, now, she was a storm, twisting me in circles. Torrential rain covering me. I wanted to go swimming in her, to come away soaked and invigorated.
I lowered my lips to hers.
“Taylor,” she whispered, but it wasn’t a protest. It was more like a surrender. Because I wasn’t the force of nature, and neither was she. It was us, together. We were the force of nature. And you can’t fight nature.
We both surrendered.
My leg slid between hers, and then I was backing her up against a tree, but I stopped myself before we reached the bark. I didn’t know how much her wounds had healed, and I wasn’t going to risk hurting her the tiniest bit, not for passion. Not for anything.
The true wildness could wait. Because this girl, when she was at full force, could handle anything I had to throw at her. I was probably the one who needed to worry. But I would rise to meet her, every time. I would make myself good enough, make myself strong enough, because this? This was better than anything.
