I have wings.
The black iridescent feathers glint under the dim lights of Des’s royal
chambers, now black, now green, now blue.
I stand in front of one of Des’s gilded mirrors, both horrified and
transfixed by the sight. Even folded up, the tops of my wings loom well
above my head and the tips brush the back of my bare calves.
Of course, wings aren’t the only thing different about me. After a
particularly nasty skirmish with Karnon, the mad King of Fauna, I now
have scaly forearms and claw-tipped fingers too.
And those are just the changes you can see. There’s nothing—except
maybe the wounded look in my eyes—that I have to show for all those parts
of me that were altered in different, more fundamental ways.
I’d spent the better part of a decade fighting the idea that I was a victim.
I’d done a damn fine job of it too—if I do say so myself—before I came to
the Otherworld. And then came Karnon. A small shiver courses through me
even now as I remember.
All those cleverly crafted layers of armor I wore were shucked away in a
week of imprisonment, and I’m not quite sure how to deal with it.
To be honest, I really don’t want to deal with it.
But, as bad as I have it, the Master of Animals got it worse. Des
vaporized the dude so completely that all that’s left of him is a bloodstain
on the remains of his throne room.
Apparently, one does not fuck with the Night King’s mate.
That’s another thing I’ve acquired recently—a soulmate. I’m bound to
Desmond Flynn, the Bargainer, one of the most wanted criminals on earth,
and one of the most powerful fae here in the Otherworld.
But even that—matehood—is more complicated than it appears.
I still have so many questions about our bond, like the fact that I never
knew I was a soulmate until a few weeks ago. Other supernaturals find this
kind of thing out back when they’re teenagers and their magic Awakens.
So why didn’t I?
There’s also the fact that most soulmates can feel the bond that connects
them to their mate like it’s a physical thing.
I place a hand over my heart.
I’ve felt no such thing.
All I have is Des’s word that we are soulmates—that and the sweet ache
in my bones that calls for him and only him.
I drop my hand from my chest.
Behind my reflection, stars glitter just beyond the arched windows of
Des’s Otherworld suite. The hanging lanterns dangle unlit, and the
sparkling light captured along the wall sconces have long since dimmed.
I’m stuck here in the Kingdom of Night.
I doubt there are all that many supernaturals that would complain about
my situation—mated to a king, forced to live in a palace—but the simple,
sobering truth is that a girl like me cannot waltz back onto Earth with giant
wings protruding from her back.
