Series Highlight - A Dark Faerie Tale by Alexia Purdy

Alexia Purdy is a fantastic author who has become a great friend. I really respect her and am totally stoked to have her on YAlicious today.

She's here to tell us about her A Dark Faerie Tale Series as well as 5 things we didn't know about her. Fun!

Welcome to YAlicious, Alexia :)

Ever Shade (A Dark Faerie Tale #1) 
A dark twist on Faeries. 

For Shade, a chance meeting with a powerful Teleen faery warrior who wields electrical currents and blue fires along his skin has her joining him on a treacherous mission for the good Seelie Faerie Court across the land of Faerie. Magic and malice abound and nothing is what it really seems to be.

The evil Unseelie Queen and her treacherous allies are round every corner as Shade makes her way across the breathtaking landscapes of the world of Faerie, which exists alongside the mundane human world. Shade discovers her own uncharted magic and meets some of the most powerful warriors in Faerie while battling evil dryads, conniving Teleen guards and challenges on her life with every step in a world where nothing can be taken for granted.

Magic & Fire burn...

The Serenity of the Land of Faerie is threatened as the Unseelie Queen Aveta rages war against the three remaining Seelie Realms of Faerie. As Shade's powers grow, she finds she is running out of time to keep the war from spilling into the human world. Winter is growing in strength as the evil Queen's horrifying legions scar the land in their frigid wake. No one is safe. Shade becomes enemy number one for the Unseelie legions. Questioning her true role of power, Shade discovers the cost of winning may come at a much higher price than she ever imagined.

Shade has been left all, but shattered. Travelling to the Ice kingdom, along with her 'body guard' Dylan-who continues to be bound to her-to where the holder of her magic dwells. The war of Faerie amplifies and her only chance to save it will be to resist the enchantments of the Ice King, one of the Ancient rulers of Faerie. But, he has his own agenda and will do anything to stop her from making it to the Summer Kingdom, with her family, to claim back her throne

These Ancients of Faerie don't want her to succeed, and the wards between the land of Faerie and the mortal world are blurring rapidly. Shade must face treacheries in every crevice of the land, even among the human mortals and trusted allies, before all is lost.

Alexia currently lives in Las Vegas, Nevada–Sin City! She loves to spend every free moment writing or playing with her four rambunctious kids. Writing has always been her dream and she has been writing ever since she can remember. She loves writing paranormal fantasy and poetry and devours books daily. Alexia also enjoys watching movies, dancing, singing loudly in the car and Italian food.


1. I’m a twin, yep, I look nothing like my brother!
2. I hate typing. Bad thing for a writer, No?
3. On my bucket list: go to as many beaches as I can to either, A) sleep or B) read lots of books and C) maybe dip my feet in the water (I’m afraid of drowning).
4. Favorite bribe: Mambas, bring me some.
5. When I was 3, I wanted to be a nurse, an author, a dancer, a singer, a movie star, an artist, an ice skater, and be a circus trapeze performer. Yeah, I was ambitious early in life.

LOL. It's always good to have dreams, Alexia :) Thanks so much for sharing and I'm so grateful you decided to become an author.
