Scary Fay Books

If you read fay on the title and instantly conjured up images of Tinker Bell, you need to search the depths of your psyche because these fairies are scary and not often kind to humans.

The old rules are breaking. Keenan, a powerful and alluring fairy begins to stalk Aishlin. Keenan is actually the Summer King and is determined to make Aishlin his Queen.
