By- Allana Kephart & Melissa Simmons
Publication Date- April 18th, 2014
Genre- New Adult Dystopian/Dark Faery Tales
The year 2102--the world as it was no longer exists. Ravaged by nuclear war and polluted almost to the point of no return, Earth was dying. When the faeries came and brought their healing magic, humanity was grateful at first. Centuries of damage repaired in just five years, and during the course of that rehabilitation, they invaded. Quietly overthrown, the human race is now enslaved. The majority doesn’t even realize they have no free will. Branded, herded and kept only to further the agendas of the Fae Courts, humanity could be facing extinction.
But a resistance is coming…
Fianna Dolan has spent her entire young life preparing herself for an uprising against the Fae. One scorching summer night Fi's parents leave and never return. Thrust into a position of power she never expected, Fi struggles with her new position and the responsibility it entails. When a secretive fae man known only as Flint breaches the city’s defenses claiming he can help, Fi begins to doubt everything she's ever considered truth. As betrayals and deception come to light, will Fi want the answers she’s been seeking, or will trusting Flint lead to her destruction?

Publication Date- August 22nd, 2014
Genre- New Adult Dystopian/ Dark Faery Tales
Patrick and Maeve Dolan left the safety of their New York human settlement on a sultry summer night and never returned. Ambushed by the Winter Court guards during their search for information on how to free humanity from faery rule, they are now ensnared in the Winter King Landric’s web, and he has some questions of his own.
The Winter King is curious about the way the Dolans run their city. In a surprising turn of events, he’s determined to learn all about their 16-year-old son, Eirnin. Landric separates the couple, threatens and tortures to the best of his ability, but the Dolans won’t give up the information he’s after.
Murphy, one of King Landric’s guards has been a ward of the Winter Court for as long as he can remember. Trained from childhood to be as quiet and obedient as possible, he’s always been the perfect servant. At least, until Princess Lumi strolled into his life and made him question everything he believes in.
When the princess vanishes without a trace in the middle of the night, Landric is determined Patrick’s people had something to do with it. Without the only connection to kindness and humanity they had, Murphy and Patrick both find themselves falling into very different kinds of insanity.
Will Murphy follow his heart just this once, choose his own side and find Lumi? Will Patrick’s hope dwindle before he can escape and save his family? Or will their unyielding resistance be the death of them all?

Please tell us about yourself using 3 verbs, 1 quirk and a pop culture addiction
Allana- loving on my dogs, plotting fictitious murders, writing. I pretend I'm talking to a live audience when I cook, and as for a cult addiction... That would be a tie between Hannibal and The Walking Dead... I spend most of my time reading/watching/etc. in those fandoms.
Melissa- reading, writing/plotting, baking I watch my favorite movies over and over until I can recite them in full.. and I’m hopelessly addicted to Arrow and I really don’t see how it’s a bad thing.
Who do you consider the most swoon-worthy man in the literary world? How about on tv/in the movies?
Allana- ...what kind of evil question is this... *huffs* Okay.. First and foremost I love me some Filo, from Kaye Thornbrugh's "Flicker". I just want to jump in the book and trample him, okay? Other favorites are Finn from The Daughters of the Sea Series by Kristen Day, Patch from The Hush Hush Saga by Becca Fitzpatrick...and more, than I won't torment you by listing... I need help.
In the real world, again, I'm pathetic. I love me some Adam Levine, Norman Reedus, Andrew Lincoln, Mads Mikkelsen... Hugh Dancy is my current favorite stalking victim--er.. Eye candy of choice...at this time....
Melissa- This is hard! In books, I’d say it’s a toss up between Dimitri Belikov from the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead (just love me some Dimka), Laurie from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, Valek from the Study Series by Maria V Snyder...then we have Will Herondale from Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare..oh how I adore him, Ash from the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa (sigh), Patch from the Hush Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick, Wolf from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, Rhett Butler from Gone With The Wind, Tod from the Soul Screamers Series by Rachel Vincent (I mean, come on, how amazing is he?).....and lastly (but certainly not least) Jericho Barrons from the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning and there are TOO MANY wonderful book boys!! I might need a support group of some sort...Ahem, onto tv/movies; Jamie Dornan as Graham/the Huntsman on Once Upon a Time was absolutely delicious (let’s be honest, he’s amazing in everything)
Top 5 Favorite Things
Allana-Animals (especially those that let me near them)
Melissa-(in no particular order)
Netflix, my kindle/books, my cat, my family, my ipod
What’s the last song you listened to?
Allana- Oh the same song I've been listening to on repeat for the last, like, 3 months... "Blue Jeans" by Lana Del Rey. I haven't heard much else lately, I will admit.
