I am Meredith Gentry, P. The Unseelie Court infuses me with its power.
But at what price does such magic come? How much of my human side will I have to give up, and how much of the Come stroke with me side of faerie will I have to embrace? I am Princess Meredith, heir Come stroke with me a throne of fairie. Princess has now become a full-time occupation. My aunt, Queen Andais, will have it no other way. And so I am virtually a prisoner in fairie - trapped here with some of the realm's most beautiful men to serve as my bodyguards For I am compelled to conceive a child: The only certainty is death at the hands of my cousin Cel, or his followers, if I fail.
I am Meredith Gentry, princess and heir apparent to the throne in the realm of faerie. King Taranis, powerful and vain-glorious ruler of faerie's Seelie Court, has leveled accusations against my noble guards of a heinous crime. But I know that Taranis's charges are baseless, and I sense that his true target is me.
He tried to kill me when I was a child. Now I fear his intentions are far more terrifying.
