Dear Ms. Resciniti,
Somebody is murdering the Pixies. They’ve been dropping like flies in this small college town.
Skye’s a teen witch who sucks at spells and is skeptical of the idea of winged Tinker Bells. But strange things have been going on at the metaphysical shop, The Green Fairy, where she works nights: black specks of movement out of the corner of her eye, mysterious buzzing noises, unidentified dragonfly carcasses in the basement, and a hidden cache of absinthe (aka fairy crack).
Kheelan is a human changeling. Raised with the fairies, he’s viewed as an inferior species whose only use is to serve his kidnappers. He’s been totally screwed by the Fae and his only goal in life is freedom. When he meets Skye, he sees an opportunity to escape. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by feelings for this quirky witch.
Skye stumbles upon the remains of dead fairies and is approached by Kheelan who has been sent to investigate the pixie murders. Funny thing is — he looks exactly like a part-time employee of the store who has autism. Skye falls for him only to discover he’s using her to win his freedom. Hard to believe she’s really half-fairy and has secret powers when she can never get a spell to work right. But one night, after years of painful backaches from what she thought was scoliosis, Skye discovers a pair of sprouted wings.
As Samhain, the witch’s Halloween, draws near she must make a bold move to claim her heritage and power, restore order in the fairy realm, and try to win Kheelan’s freedom and love. Absinthe, autism and augury meld into a paranormal cauldron where everyone is not what it seems and the fairies are sly tricksters who can trap you in their Realm.
THE GREEN FAIRY is a completed 70,000-word YA paranormal romance. Thank you for your consideration.
