Claire Banschbach's BLOG PARTY!

Damian is a pretty awesome faery, if you want to take the biased opinion of the author. He’s considered one of the most eligible bachelors in the mountain but doesn’t seem to recognize that fact. He is taller than most faeries, has brown hair, and hazel eyes. He is about one hundred years old which is roughly equivalent to twenty human years.
He specializes in the care of animals, and the territory he takes care of is right next to the most dangerous part of the forest. He has one younger brother who works as a blacksmith in the mountain. Damian is fairly even tempered and very loyal to those he loves. He’d do anything to help someone in trouble, which may or may not get him into trouble occasionally.

Fun Fact: Damian was the real reason this story got written in the first place. I came up with the idea after a random forest scene with a faery (Damian) popped into my head. From there it was a matter of trying to figure out how he had gotten there and what would happen next. As it turns out, Adela is actually the main character, but he makes a nice supporting character. I won’t say which scene because it’s actually in the book and would be quite spoilery if I told you. 


A curse. A murderous scheme. A choice.
A witch and her master capture a young faery and command her to kill their enemy. Adela has no choice but to obey. If she does not, they will force the location of her people’s mountain home from her and kill her. To make matters even worse, the person she is to kill is only a man struggling to save his dying land and mend a broken heart.
Count Stefan is a man simply trying to forget the woman he loves and save a land crippled by drought. When a mysterious woman arrives at his castle claiming to be a seamstress, he knows she is more than she seems.
Adela enlists the help of Damian, another faery, to try and delay the inevitable. He insists she has a choice. But with the witch controlling her every move, does she?

  3. Damian has been my favorite ever since I read Adela's Curse. :D I wonder if he's in books 2 and 3?
