In Blood Tied, the second book of the Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge series, readers are introduced to another magical species–the fae or fairies.
When most people think about fairies, they envision tiny, androginous sprites fluttering around on paper thin wings or they go straight to the fairy we all know the best
The One and Only Tinkerbell
While the fae in the Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge series can reduce their size, they are not what most of us think they are.
That then begs the question:
Who are the fae?
Unlike the rest of the magical community, the fae are comprised of pure, natural magic that originates from the Gate, the source of all magic in the world. They represent the first sentient magical creatures to walk the earth and are tasked with performing life’s natural processes to keep the world running smoothly.
In order to carry out their duties, they are divided into two species–the light fae and the dark fae.
Often mischievous but usually kind-hearted and gentle, the light fae consist of fire fairies, air sprites, water spirits, and gnomes who are tasked with fanning the fires of creativity and the hearth, ushering in the winds, safeguarding the waterways, and protecting the earth. The fae magic at their command derives directly from the elements but in a purer form than the one witches and warlocks access.
The dark fae deal with the more negative aspects of life, heralding death, torturing the guilty and lazy, instilling greed, and inciting murder. This makes their demeanors extremely different from their light fae cousins. They can be sinister and wicked, which is reflected in the darker fae magic they wield.
The abilities of all fae are rumored to rival that of warlocks, witches, and wizards. However, since the fae reside in Otherworld, a plane of existence separate from Earth, they are not seen as a threat to many within the magical community.
So there you have it–a brief introduction into the fae as I have created them for Blood Tied. Believe me when I tell you, there’s a lot more to them than I could possibly put here, and there’s a whole lot more to tell!
