Devin thought his stay with the sidhe would be short. That soon changed when he found out that he loved Nessa, but love just might not be enough. She has other suitors, and Devin isn’t sure if he wants to go through that again. Too bad for him, suitors are the least of his problems. On the eve of Nessa’s coronation, Devin finds himself framed for using magic he doesn’t possess. With his sidhe powers he’s the only one who knows that the magic harming people around Nessa comes not from nature, but from the witches. Good thing Devin knows a witch or two himself, but will it be in time to save everything and get Nessa on the throne?
Excerpt from The Day Human Way:
Nessa peeked around Devin’s shoulder to the men on the ground. Had he done something to put them there? All three had just been standing there professing their desire to court her, and now they were all on the ground before everyone. She felt the magic in Devin before she could respond, and was encased in the protective bubble he was getting better at casting every day. At least she was also getting better at sensing it. Nessa stopped moving where she was trapped.
Devin moved forward and bent down to the closest person who happened to be Liam.
“What’s wrong with him?” Nessa asked over the noise of the audience freaking out. Devin had cast a spell to both keep the stage safe, and to keep the three men’s families from rushing the stage. They didn’t seem too happy about it, but it was better that way
He placed a hand on Liam as he had done each time when saving everyone else. Devin was getting stronger by the minute.
While Devin checked over Liam, Nessa watched the crowd. Some were visibly scared and trying to flee the room while others stared in anger at Devin. Most of the angry sidhe were visitors and didn’t understand how strong Devin truly was, but they did get that he was the one stopping them from getting on the stage. Nessa looked back at Devin.
“What’s wrong with them?” Uncle Rolf asked as he stopped next to Devin.
“I’m not sure,” Devin replied, his hands hovering over Liam. He paused and looked up at Nessa. Releasing the protective bubble, he let her move forward.
“What’s wrong?” she asked tentatively. She wasn’t interested in Liam romantically, but he was an old friend. She hated to see him unconscious as he was.
“I don’t know. He’s barely holding on,” Devin replied quietly. The relatives of each of the three men were pressed to his barrier.
“What’s going on?” one of the men yelled.
“Let us in,” another yelled beside the first. He banged his fists on the see-through barrier.
Devin looked back down at Liam and closed his eyes to concentrate. Suddenly, he pulled back his hands and Liam began to shake.
