At the heart of war there are always two sides...The one who stays and the one who goes.
Bound by love, distanced by war, and separated by sacrifice, Jayden and Danaus find an unexpected reunion through the power of words. War took Jayden away, and Danaus must confront the remnants of their love in a ceremony meant to honor her sacrifice. Instead, it resurfaces old wounds and unveils a miraculous connection hidden within Jayden's quiver – their wartime letters.
As Danaus reconstructs the final months of their lives through these letters, she confronts a spectrum of emotions. Their correspondence paints a vivid picture of love, loss, and grief, exposing a truth about Jayden's death kept hidden from the world. This revelation shakes Danaus to her core, challenging her perceptions of Jayden, Queen Sekhmet, and, most profoundly, herself.

Danielle M. Orsino is a fantasy novelist whose compelling word-weaving pays homage to a multitude of personal muses, from Chris Claremont and George Pérez (both famous comic book writers), to Anne Rice, Jim Henson and Wonder Woman. The creative spark of storytelling has been with Danielle ever since she was a child, but martial arts and her nursing career took center stage into adulthood.
Then, on a day like any other, it was reignited during the most unexpected of moments: while treating one of her patients. It started as a simple tale to distract her patient and transformed into a fantastical narrative that would become the foundation for the series "The Birth of Fae".
In keeping with the roots of her creativity, Danielle appears on the cover of each book in all her Fae cosplay glory. The series also features Los, an affable chameleon dragon, inspired by her fun-loving Yorkie named Carlos.
This “New Queen of the Fae’s” unmatched world-building and masterful Fae-origin retellings have led to an ever-growing queendom of “Fae-natics”.
