from the back cover
One promise can change everything.
The fairies must never know of Nelay’s sight, for the attention of such dark and terrible creatures brings more things dark and terrible.
But when Nelay's father is near death, the fairies are the only ones who can save him. All they require is a simple promise that she'll return the favor one day.
Sometimes promises are deadly.
Of Fire and Ash is a short novella in the Fairy Queens series by Amber Argyle. It introduces us to Nelay, a young girl who had spent her life hiding the reality of her special gift… the fact that she could see fairies. Her mother had taught her from a very young age to avoid them at all costs. For one thing, the help of a fairy meant a very high price would have to be paid. In addition, it could bring her to the attention of the priestesses, taking her away to a life apart from your family. But Nelay learns that sometimes it is a price worth paying, or is it?
This is a short read, but a great back story to the upcoming Summer Queen! While you could probably read Summer Queen without it, it adds quite a bit to Nelay’s story!
