You’d think that avoiding life’s problems would be easy. And for the most part it had been. Cruising through the mortal life for almost ten years, reality free.
I was safe.
Until Destiny came crashing down and I was found.
It was my own fault.
In the calmness of thinking I was safe and forgotten, I’d ventured from the land of protection, left the Rift Town in order to see the rest of this mortal Earth. Ten years was a long time for people to be searching for me, after they’d kicked me out. So I assumed I was safe.
I was wrong.
And now I was being punished.
Dragged back into the Fae Realm of rivalling courts and petty issues. I was thrust into the Academy for young Fae. Though young for them was different for humans. Young for them was from the ages of 0 to 40 since they aged differently and their bodies formed in weird ways. You weren’t a full adult in their eyes until your body stopped aging fully.
Banon has been running from a life of punishment.
As a half-blood, she is considered ‘impure’ by the pure Faefolk who rule Tir Na Nog, the Land of Youth. A world that exists alongside Earth with Rifts that allow transportation between each Realm, Tir Na Nog is nothing like the Human Realm. Wild and unruly, it is less advanced and overrun with magic and immortal beings.
Banon fled the land years ago, along with other half-bloods after one of the ‘Gathering’ raids by the Fae. She made her own life on Earth, where she belonged and her half-human side thrived.
Though now she’s been dragged back into The Acadamh, an almost human-like University setting where young Fey rulers and Courts are forced to co-exist as a means of developing their own powers, skills and relations with other Courts.
However, as a half-blood, Banon and the others ripped from Earth alongside her found themselves in a dangerous situation as one by one members of the Courtless are hunted by something that even the Princes won’t speak of.
