Notes: Book 1 of a trilogy
Once upon a time, there was a bad fairy. . . .
Delia Morningstar never intended to become a fairy-tale villain. So maybe the other fairy kids in her magick school think she looks a little too much like her creepy human ancestor. So maybe she’s a little precocious. So maybe she’s a black magick prodigy and has talents for seeing the unseen. So what? It doesn’t mean she’s a bad person. And it doesn’t mean she deserves the blame for cursing a princess.
As Delia presents her side of the story, this so-called “bad fairy” delivers a journey through her childhood, detailing her hunger for excellence, her feud with three “good fairies,” and her early mastery of the dark arts. Delia’s quest to bring her passions to light in an oppressive world only yields disappointment and heartache; all her hard work earns her nothing but misunderstanding and a dangerous vendetta with the light fairies. How can she show her kingdom that the shadow deserves a chance to shine?
Bad Fairy: Book 1 is the first volume in a planned trilogy.
