My brother must have forgotten about his god status because he
wouldn’t let go of me, and I fought for breath as he hugged me,
shaking. To open my airway, I looked up at the giant redwoods and a few

He released me as he must have remembered his strength. “Liliana.”
Xavier let out a breath, and he was clearly agitated because the air around
him heated as he spoke, and his violet eyes flashed. “I didn’t want you
following me into the faerie world, and it’s dangerous and confusing. You
should have run home and got help or got that faerie guy to come after me
“Um.” That was all I could manage as I stood there among the giant
redwoods. My brother was genuinely glad to see me but also mad, which

Confusion spread over my brother’s face as he spied her.
“How long have you been here?” I asked to stall the inevitable.
Xavier worked his jaw in that broody way he always did. “A couple of
hours, I think. Have days really gone by in the other world? They must have

I took a breath. Xavier would need to take all this news in small doses,
or he might accidentally burn down this majestic forest, getting us in even
more trouble with the Seelie Court. “A lot happened since you fell in here.
