When 15-year-old Lark Augenfar’s mother is arrested for aiding a traitor, Lark knows it’s a mistake. They may harbor a fugitive or two occasionally, but the Holy Light should expect disobedience when they outlaw an entire branch of magic. Shadow is a little dangerous, sure, but neither of them makes trouble, especially trouble involving a traitor. Lark will prove her mother’s innocence, whatever it takes.
When Lark discovers that the traitor is Vashien, public enemy number one with both the Holy Light and the outlawed Shadow, she realizes she has the perfect solution—her unique ability to see the otherwise invisible weave of shadow magic is the best way to track a treacherous Shadow weaver. She strikes a deal—within a week, Lark will either trade Vashien for her mother, or her mother will be executed. Simple enough to find one old traitor, right?
Not when her Shadow allies have agendas of their own. Not when her mother keeps secrets about her involvement with Vashien. Not when something is hunting her, something that needs Vashien free. Before time runs out, Lark must find a way to trap Vashien—if whatever is hunting her doesn’t trap her first.
In this YA bestseller, optioned for film by Ridley Scott, the battle between Light and Dark is about to begin. Caroline Ellis' sixteenth birthday sets into motion a series of events that have been fated for centuries. A descendant of Virginia Dare, the first child born in the lost colony of Roanoke, and unaware of her birthright as the heir to the throne of the Light Fae, it isn't until Caroline begins a tumultuous relationship with Devilyn Reilly that the truth of her heritage is revealed. Devilyn is the only Fae who is both of the Light and of the Dark, and struggles to maintain that precarious balance to avoid succumbing to the power of the Dark within him. He is the only one who can save Caroline from those who would destroy her and destroy all hope for unity among the Fae. He promises Caroline that he will protect her at all costs, even when it means protecting her from himself. Told from the alternating perspectives of Caroline and Devilyn, FAE draws on mysteries, myths and legends to create a world, and a romance, dangerously poised between Light and Dark.
