Sample text

It was a comfort of sorts. ” Ani extended her other arm toward the former Dark King. She stared at the fleur-de-lis wallpaper, at the flickering candles, at anything other than the faery sitting beside her. ” He squeezed her hand once more before releasing it. “If there was another way—” “You’re my king. I will give whatever you ask of me. ” She watched as he jabbed a thin tube into her skin. Bruises from the last several tubes decorated her skin like love bites. “Not your king now. ” Ani didn’t resume the argument she’d lost too often: Irial might be king-no-more, but he had her loyalty.

Irial wrapped his arms around her and kissed the top of her head. It wasn’t much, but small touches from such a strong faery fed her skin hunger more than a lot of touch from a weak faery or a mortal would. Ani stayed still, grateful for even the scant contact. Irial stroked her hair. “You let me keep my promises to stop the ink exchanges, to protect my king…. ” She looked up at him. ” Irial stepped away, his hands still on her shoulders, and then he unfolded her arms and took her hands in his as he repeated the same assurances he had the past few months.

He thought her ability to feed on the emotions of both faery and mortal was hidden from those who would kill, use, or champion her. Niall was a humane king. He allowed their faeries to do as they must, but he kept the court on a leash. In a time when Bananach—the carrion crow, the bringer of war—grew stronger, leashes were dangerous.
