About the Book
Author: C.J. Abedi
Series: Fae Trilogy #1
Publication Date: July 30, 2013
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
Caroline Ellis' sixteenth birthday sets into motion a series of events that have been fated for centuries. A descendant of Virginia Dare, the first child born in the lost colony of Roanoke, and unaware of her birthright as the heir to the throne of the Light Fae, it isn’t until Caroline begins a tumultuous relationship with Devilyn Reilly that the truth of her heritage is revealed.
Devilyn is the only Fae who is both of the Light and of the Dark, and struggles to maintain that precarious balance to avoid succumbing to the power of the Dark within him. He is the only one who can save Caroline from those who would destroy her and destroy all hope for unity among the Fae. He promises Caroline that he will protect her at all costs, even when it means protecting her from himself.
Told from the alternating perspectives of Caroline and Devilyn, FAE draws on mysteries, myths and legends to create a world, and a romance, dangerously poised between Light and Dark.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE WRITING THE BOOK TOGETHER?
We went through every emotion you could possibly imagine writing this book. When you write something as a team it can be a very exciting process because you have someone you can bounce ideas off of, and you also have someone there for you because writing can be a very lonely process. However, on the flip side, you also have to agree on every idea and word that is put to paper. That can be very challenging, especially when you are sisters.
In order to make things as smooth as possible, we try to be very organized during our process and start by writing a very detailed chapter-by-chapter outline. Once the outline is complete, one of us starts writing, sends the other the first chapter or few pages, the one who receives it reviews what is written, makes additions or changes, adds some more and it goes back and forth until our work is completed. So we do not physically sit in a room together, taking turns typing away. This process allows both of us to really get in the heads of all characters and leave our mark on every page.
