Or maybe you prefer the term sidhe, faerie or pixie.
Don’t trust your eyes; few humans can see faeries without a bit of magic or a looking stone.
Fae are often broken up into the Seelie Court, the Unseelie Court, and solitary fae. Think of the Seelie Court as the aristocrats of fae, and while they are prone to their share of mischief, their pranks rarely cause harm. The Unseelie Court consists of dark fae. They are the most malicious and evil of the faeries. Solitary Fae fall in the middle, often trying to stay under the radar of the two courts.
If we break down the courts a little more, you have the Summer Fae and the Winter Fae of the Seelie Court. Just as their names imply, Winter Fae are the strongest during the cold months of winter and Summer Fae are at their best in the warm months of summer. We meet the prince and princess of the Seelie Court in Hold Tight, book two in The Embrace Series. These siblings were a lot of fun to write about. =)
