Syl Skye. Rouen Rivoche. Star-crossed lovers who should be mortal enemies. This is the story of how they met.

A nightly excursion to DC. A goth-rock show. One innocent train ride. That’s all it takes for high school sophomore Syl Skye’s perfectly normal world to come crashing down.

Because unbeknownst to her, she’s a sleeper-princess of the fair Fae—a vessel of Fae power that has yet to Awaken—and there are dark Fae who want her dead, dead, dead.

Rouen Rivoche is one of those dark Fae. Bound to Agravaine the dark Fae Huntsman who is dedicated to wiping out all sleeper-princesses, Rouen has no choice but to hunt Syl down and spill her blood.

But a chance meeting in a nightclub, a brush of their hands, a lingering look… Despite herself, Rouen is attracted to Syl. And when she lets Syl get away…that’s when their troubles really begin.

After all, every couple has their issues, right?

Find out how Syl and Rouen met in this new prequel novella to MORIBUND, Book 1 of The Circuit Fae…

The world author Genevieve Iseult Eldredge establishes in “Derailed”, and the Circuit Fae series, is simply phenomenal.

In this prequel novella, Syl Skye’s life is turned upside down after a nightly excursion to DC. Turns out that Syl is a sleeper-princess of the Fae, and several dark Fae want her dead.

Rouen Rivoche is one of the dark Fae, and she has no choice but to hunt Syl down and kill her… Except that, despite herself, Rouen is attracted to Syl. Will that attraction stop her from killing the sleeper-princess?

This prequel is amazing. It sets the stage well for the first book in the series, establishes the romance and the connection between both main characters, and keeps readers on the edge of their seat from start to end. An excellent start to the Circuit Fae series!
