A Reverie of Flames - Cailee Francis
Born again into the mortal world, I'd hoped to escape the war between light and dark fae. I wasn't alone - Sorcha (my love) and Princess Saphira of the seelie (who we were sworn to protect) were with me. Rings gifted by Queen Carisse of the seelie ensured we were born in the same timeframe and we'd remain together. More than chance brought us to the city of Grayhaven. It was magic and destiny.
Sorcha had returned to my life the day she saved me from an unseelie attack; that was when my memories had come flooding back. Now I found myself regaining my awareness of who I was and discovering how serendipitous fate can be at bringing you to the right place at just the right time.
In the unique position of remembering our fae origins, Sorcha - now Angelica, a white witch who opposed unseelie interests in the city, and I had a lot to catch up on. As she brought me up to speed, I realised the depth of my feelings for her, and that I wanted to continue our romance into this, our next lifetime.
Princess Saphira was reborn as Ayla: my sister. Now an 18 year old student and budding witch, she was a prime target for the unseelie who sought to overthrow the seelie royal family. We had to protect her, and Angelica and I would do our best to ensure she stayed safe.
