The war with the dark Unseelie Fae has already begun. Humans need to know how to protect themselves.
Although we (the Seelie Fae) have stood between humans and the dark Fae, they are escaping in numbers too great to contain, and they are coming for you!
The prison wall that kept the Dark Fae in their Dark Realm has been breeched. We used a great deal of our skills—and magic—to keep that wall intact, but it has been dangerously thinning. They escaped in small numbers, but there is another threat—their new and sinister leader whom you may already have met.
His name is Gaiscioch.
The Unseelie creatures (one shrinks to call them Fae, for in most respects they are very different) have been, from the moment they were created, a venomous, bitter, and malevolent race of ill-formed life. They have always wanted human contact. They want it still, and that is not good.
Gaiscioch was one of our own. He turned his back on his own kind. We dubbed him a renegade Seelie. He took refuge in the Dark Realm, and in return for their allegiance, he promised the monsters freedom. He promised them our Fae and human worlds.
Gais freed some of the lower castes through various portals he was able to create before our great Seelie Queen Aaibhe managed to shut them down.
Although Gaiscioch was trapped in the Dark Realm of the Unseelie, he has been hard at work. He found ways to open the gap in the wall, and he will try to make those slits wider. He will need large enough portals for his Unseelie army, and his goal is to bring that army through to your human world--soon.
Gais has no love for the Unseelie, but he has an agenda all his own, and he needs the miserable, heinous things for his war.
The Unseelie monsters have never been free to walk your Earth in such numbers…

We Seelie Fae have always been fond of our Druids.
Some humans thought they might be Fae descendents; perhaps in a way they are.
Humans speak of them as a mysterious group and have written a great deal about the Druid community. They have always been, as they should be, a secretive and select entity, and there is nothing like the skills and abilities of a high Druid priest/priestess.
A Druid priest was sorcerer, oracle, sage, and tribe leader in the Druid, tight-knit communities. He was the mediator between the physical world and the spirit realm. The Druid priests or priestess’ controlled the knowledge and the secrets of their small tribes. They did and do…
Druid priests still have the power to cause storms, and they have many gifts and abilities, given to them by us—the Seelie Fae.
In return for their special gifts, they have for over a thousand years enacted the four rituals that help maintain the prison walls. Druid women, as well as female Fae, have always been regarded as equals to males and had the power to conduct these rituals as well.
And now more than ever, the World—each of our worlds—needs our Druids.
My Fae queen has recruited her loyal Druid high priests. She said they are the answer to this quickly overwhelming problem. She put her trackers out searching for a way to capture Gaiscioch. She managed and placed her Fae warriors in strategic positions.
Even so, the escaped Unseelie are unthinking creatures of horror and are already feeding indiscriminately in the human world. They are even allowing themselves to be seen before they kill, just for the sheer pleasure of witnessing the terror in their victims’ faces. And their numbers—their numbers are becoming almost too great to contain.
And so, Gaiscioch has set his stage, and the greatest battle the human world has ever seen has already started…
Who am I?
Princess Ete, royal cousin to the Seelie Fae queen.
