Once upon a time, iron kept the fae from wandering the sunlit realm. But over the millennia, iron gave way to steel, and now the fae are unbound. Welcome to the Court of the Steel-Born Fae…
She has lost her inner beast.
After a traumatic wounding, tigress shifter Yelena Morozova can’t find her way back to the verita luna—the Second Truth that is a wereling’s heart and soul. Worse yet, if she can’t reconcile her shifting selves, her beloved half-sisters will remain trapped in Siberian exile. But when she falls through a watery fairy ring into the faedrealii—the long-lost court of the fae—she finds more threatening changes than even her brave tigress heart might survive.
He has lost control of the steel-born fae.
The wicked queen’s court is out of control, and Arazael—known to the fearful and the dead as Raze the Ruiner—sees only one way to hold on: hide the court away from the temptations of the sunlit realm. During the Iron Wars, as the fae were losing ground to the encroaching humans, Raze helped create the sanctuary of the faedrealii. To fulfill his vows to his brother who would have been king, Raze will lock the wards once and for all, though it will take every last drop of his magic-infused blood.
The dark prince finds a stray cat—and a love that might end him and the fae.
As Arazael and Yelena seek to unravel each other’s secrets, they realize their shared entrapment—he in the fae court he helped create and fears to abandon, she in the labyrinth of her wounded verita luna—brought them together. Now his dark, sensual touch delights her inner cat, and her golden pleasure tempts him with all the delights of the sunlit realm—passions that once threatened to destroy the court.
But a spiraling imbalance between the worlds of man and magic, between light and illusion, might tear apart the world—and two lonely hearts—forever.
