We have a special guest post today. Rachel Morgan is here to talk about her new series Creepy Hollow. Guardian, book one, is now available, and it's awesome. Take it away, Rachel.
The Fantasy World of Creepy Hollow
For Cherie’s Fantasy Tuesday I’m sharing a little about the fantasy world I created for the Creepy Hollow series.
They’re not tiny and winged. In fact, they look pretty much like humans, apart from their hair and eyes. To make things interesting, I decided that all faeries are born with streaks of bright color in their hair, and that color matches their eyes. So Violet, for example (you can guess this one) has purple streaks in her dark hair, and purple eyes to match (yeah, her parents thought they were being clever giving her that name).
The Fae Realm
This is a realm not accessible by humans (at least, not without the help of a faerie). The part of the fae realm that Violet lives in is called Creepy Hollow (hence the name of the series. Duh). It’s a forest. The Guild of Guardians that Violet is a member of (as there are several Guilds throughout the world) is situated here.
The Faerie Paths
The Guild is the protective force of the fae realm. There are several Guilds throughout the world, and they train and employ guardians. The Guild Councils, together with the Seelie Queen, determine the Laws that should be upheld by all fae (I say 'should' because, of course, not everyone obeys the Law . . .).
Thanks, Cherie, for letting me share some of the stuff that’s been bouncing around in my imagination!
