QSFer Elizabeth Watasin has a new fantasy book out:
The Twilight World: where monsters and magical people meet. Teen witch Bunny has a perfectly wicked girlfriend in vampire biker Dean, until a dark faerie comes along. Can Bunny resist Fairer Than’s charms? And when she does, what will Fairer Than do about it? Paranormal romance, fantasy, comedy. LGBT YA.
ON the very edges of the unknown lies the Twilight World, where the town of Little Salem teems with hot rods, ghouls, and devil girls.
Meet magical witch girl Bunny, a good teen witch happily attending Haunt High, drinking milkshakes at Shivers, and dancing her midnights away at cemetery spook fetes. Vampire Dean is her perfect greaser girlfriend, but beyond hot rods and motorcycles lies something more in the Enchanting Forest: faeries. And even among such ancient denizens, they’ve someone to fear: the notorious heart breaker and home wrecker, the dark faerie, Fairer Than.
Fairer Than: gorgeous, red-haired, stronger than a faerie ought to be, and smoldering in more ways than one. Her reputation has Daughters of the Faerie Court flee before her wake lest they fall for her charms.
And when Fairer Than comes to Little Salem, she just happens to notice Bunny.
“Beat it, dematerialize!” Bunny incanted, incensed. Nix and Pix disappeared in a puff of sparkling smoke. Two more shrieks sounded over the water.
“Ha!” Bunny said, and snapped her fingers. Sending teasing girls into the lake might be over-kill, but Bunny had learned one thing fast and early while growing up in Little Salem: it was best to show Other-beings that she wasn’t a human to push around. She stepped to return to the campground.
“Lovely trick, from a lovely witch,” a woman said behind her. The rich tone was deep and sultry.
“Beat it,” Bunny said, raising her wand. She turned.
Her incantation died on her lips. A tall faerie stood before her, leaning a forearm on a tree. Her thick, red tresses were dotted with tiny white flowers, the locks gathered and held by one gold ring. Her curvaceous body was clad in a deep green kirtle with a brief bodice, loosely laced over her breasts. The kirtle’s straps had fallen from her broad shoulders and hung, ragged. One draped a gold armband circling a bicep. Old-gold medallions and large, sharp teeth made up the faerie’s heavy girdle, and beneath her skirt’s rough hem, her bare toes poked. The faerie stepped away from the tree.
“I’m Fairer Than,” she said.
“I’m…Bunny.” Fairer Than approached, and Bunny could think of nothing else to say. As the faerie neared, the green irises of her heavy-lidded gaze became evident, and her pouty-lipped mouth curled into a smile.
“Charmed,” she said.
