C. T. Adams
From USA Today bestselling author C. T. Adams comes the first book of the Fae, The Exile.
Brianna Hai runs an occult shop that sells useless trinkets to tourists—and real ritual implements and ingredients to real witches and warlocks. Brianna is half-Fae; she and her human mother fled the Fae world years ago, escaping court intrigues and assassination attempts. Brianna's mother then sealed the border between the worlds—except for a single, secret portal.
An attack made through that portal drags Brianna back to the Fae world and the battle over who will succeed her father, King Liu, on the throne of Faery. Shocked to learn that a new prophecy names her heir, Brianna is pretty sure she doesn't want the job. She'd rather work on her brand-new relationship with a hunky police detective who doesn't believe in magic.
With her enemies girding for war, in Faery and on Earth. Brianna doesn't have much choice--it looks like greatness is being thrust upon her.
Brianna woke before the alarm to the smell of fresh coffee and the sound of her roommate puttering in the kitchen. She couldn't see what Pug was up to, but from the sound of it he was getting food ready...
