Birth of the Fae by Danielle Marie Orsino
Locked out of Heaven Book One
What would you do if all you knew had abandoned you? Abandoned by their creator, two factions of angels remain on earth after the Great War with Lucifer. These Virtues and Power Angels struggle to comprehend their Creator’s plan while their wings, a symbol of their angelic lineage, slowly and painfully decay. Unaware of one another, the angels learn to survive and reinvent themselves. With no hope of returning to the Shining Kingdom, both groups denounce their angelic lineage and develop into their own factions. They call themselves the “Fae.” This is their story.
The Fae world is ruled by two distinct courts: the Court of Light, led by Queen Aurora, a former Virtue Angel, and the Court of Dark, ruled by King Jarvok, a former Power Brigade Angel. The two monarchs have opposing views on how to govern their kin and, more importantly, the way humanity plays into their survival.
A personal message from the author:
It started in an IV room far far away, if you consider Westchester county far away. A patient was becoming antsy with his Lyme treatment and asked me to entertain him, his IV treatments were long and he drove hours to get endure them. I asked him to tell me something interesting about himself. He mentioned he was recruited by the CIA and the match was lit. The story of the Fae fell from my lips. My patient was the one who encouraged me to continue with the story, and what started as one book 9 months later. I left the nursing profession to pursue writing after I developed an allergy to the very medications I used to help treat my patients. My patient who Inspired this book has been my biggest supporter.
