Isolt’s Enchantment: the beginnings
Daughter of Light Trilogy #0.5
By- Heidi Garrett

Genre- YA Fantasy/Faerie Tales

Long before the half-faerie Melia was born in the mortal world, the god Vulcan married Isolt of the Waters. When she betrayed him, the seeds of a great war were planted in the Void.
In Idonne, a young scholar studies Isolt’s story, along with tales of dwarf magic and the birth of a malevolent entity in the Void, Umbra. The stories awaken his dream of a life filled with adventure and heroism.
  

Half Faerie
Daughter of Light Trilogy # 1
By- Heidi Garrett
Genre- YA Fantasy/Faerie Tales
 
She doesn’t believe in love, and she doesn’t believe in herself.
 
The crucible of her parents’ dark ambitions will forge her destiny.
 
Her consciousness will be transformed.
 
The journey will be epic.
 
Melia is an eighteen-year-old half faerie, half-mortal who longs to fly like the full-blood faeries. She also yearns for a life that’s truly her own, which might prove more difficult than sprouting wings. Her faerie mother practices black magic, and her mortal father plots to bring war to the enchanted world. No matter how she tries to escape their long shadow, Melia is unable to distance herself from her parents’ obsessions.
 
After the half-faerie is accused of being her father’s spy, her friend advises a trip to the Illustrator. The mysterious woman marks Melia’s forehead with a strange emblem. She claims it will draw a young priest from distant lands who will come to the half-faerie’s aid. Spooked rather than comforted, Melia dismisses the woman’s words. Rather, she travels to the mortal world to confront her father.
Whimsical and edgy, Daughter of Light is a spinoff of the 14th century French fairy tale “Melusine.” A high fantasy with fairy tale elements and an intriguing cosmology, it’s a great choice for readers who have loved Lord of the Rings.
