68. The number inked upon my skin, marking me the sixty-eighth pixie to be stolen.
87. The number of days I’ve been wrongfully imprisoned.
88. The first day the faeries will regret stealing me.
Devon Ashley has penned a novel full of romance (my weakness!), adventure and intrigue. Oh. And faeries!!! (also another weakness of mine) I have yet to review this book - I will very soon - so I will let the interview with Devon speak for itself!
Me: Where did you get the idea for this book?
Devon Ashley: Hmm...for once I'm not really sure. I wanted to create something you don't see too often in YA lit: a prison theme. Sometimes you'll see a character get thrown in for awhile (like Ana in The Glimpse) but rarely will you find a YA book that centers around that location. I also knew I wanted to write something about the fae, particularly the pixies, so I incorporated them in, making the faeries come off more negatively than you find in most books. So I hope what I created for you guys will be seen as fresh and original, even if the slave camp makes the pace come off a wee bit slower than my other books. But even though Rosalie's days are quite repetitive, I made sure the chapters don't read that way. :)
Me: I love faeries. Did the fantasy in this book come from you, or did you do a little research, too? Both?
