Never trust a pretty face. My grandma taught me that. She warned me about the Fair Folk but I never believed her…until I was kidnapped by one. And damn, he is pretty.
But Fin was sent to bring me to his King, and if I want to survive the Otherworld, I have no choice but to trust him – for now.
Looking at the faery boy in front of me, with his exquisite features and striking eyes, I thought that Grandma had been right. I was realizing she had been right about a lot of things. I wished I’d listened to her better, wished I’d believed her when she warned me about the Fair Folk.
Staring into those inhumanly bright eyes, seeing the glitter of something cruel beneath that prettiness, I whimpered. I didn’t mean to, and the second I did, I wished I hadn’t. I couldn’t show fear there, or the beautiful monsters would tear me apart like well-disguised lions.
Three Things I Learned While Writing Cursed Rebel:
There is no end to the amount of different fae in myth and legend – from kelpies to brownies to redcaps, selkies and sidhe and elves, to name just a few. There are hundreds! It’s by far the most diverse and expansive mythology I’ve looked into.
Gaelic is a VERY complicated language. I have always wanted to learn Gaelic, but when I looked into it, using the internet and an old Gaelic-English dictionary, I realized how hard that would be. The words themselves are hard to pronounce, nothing like the way they are spelt, and trying to form a sentence just to ask where the bathroom is, is an absolute tongue-twister.
It’s actually pretty hard to write a faery story. There are so many legends and types of fae, you’d think it would be easy to just pick one and run with it. But creating an entire world from scratch, and making it match the characters and their personalities, is tricky. I had to push my imagination a lot to come up with something readers might not have seen before, to make my Otherworld original and interesting.
