It’s a whole year since we left Devilyn and Caroline’s love story hanging in the balance. A year that has not been a good one for our favourite authors. As much as we are desperate to find out what has become of our star crossed lovers, we understand that at present it isn’t a priority for Colet and Jasmine. We wish them both well, our thoughts and prayers are with them.
Over the last few weeks, our favourite authors have been posting teasers on their facebook page.This is what we have so far and what does it all mean? Are Caroline and Devilyn fated to be together only in the next life? Let us know what you think?

Have you, like us, been waiting patiently for the final installment of the Fae trilogy to come out? Well, it looks like we could be in for a Christmas treat. CJ Abedi tweeted a short while ago that we can expect book 3 in time for the holidays. We are really excited as well as slightly sad that this is the final book.The ladies left us with this teaser in the form of a verse from Lord Byron.
“For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!” Lord Byron
What does it mean for our star crossed lovers?
Will Devilyn turn his back on the dark for his soul mate?
Will Caroline survive?
Will they only be together in the after life?
Let us know!
We asked the authors of our favourite book series a few questions. Read on to see what they had to say.
Have you visited Roanoke and all the places you mention in the books?
Unfortunately we have not yet visited Roanoke.
COLET: I have visited the Hill of Tara, Stone of Destiny, New Grange, etc. It is the most magical place in all the world. I am in love with Ireland and cannot wait to get back there and hug that stone! I feel like it made a lot of our dreams come true. There is TOTAL magik up on that Hill of Tara.
Did you have the trilogy mapped out from the beginning?
We had the trilogy mapped out from the moment we started writing. We knew what we’d call each book in the trilogy and we basically knew what would happen as well.
Has anything changed?
There have been some changes along the way, we believe definite improvements but overall the story is what we envisioned it would be from the beginning.
Is Katya gone for good?
Poor Katya. Imagine being completely in love with someone that despises everything you stand for… no she is not gone for good. J She will reappear in book 3 but there will definitely be some twists with her character.
Did you deliberately set out to write a YA novel?
Yes, we really wanted to write the story of Devilyn and Caroline and we wanted it to be accessible to all age groups. There is an innocence that you get to keep when writing YA that is romantic and just leaves a lot to the viewers imagination.
Have you ever disagreed on how the story will progress?
LOL! All the time! We are writing this trilogy together AND we are sisters. We’re both also stubborn with strong opinions so we argue over stuff all the time but in the end we always do what’s best for Devilyn and Caroline.
What plans do you have for when Fae is finished. Any more YA ideas for the future?
We’re both working on solo projects that we’re excited about but if something comes up who knows?
How old is Devilyn in Fae world terms? (cough cough is he like a certain 108 yr old vampire stuck in a 17 yr old body)?
HA! He’s older than that hunky vampire. His soul is ancient and he was born into FAE form during the period of the Lost Colony.
Have you named book 3?
There is some controversy about fan fiction. Some authors absolutely hate fans continuing their stories, especially taking their YA charcaters into an adult world. Thoughts?
You know, it’s hard to say. But I think we both agree that if you have fans that are that passionate about your characters they’re allowed to play and go to wherever places they want… so I guess we’re cool with it. As YA authors, you’re just lucky if you have fans that love the world you created so much.
Are your characters based on anyone you know/knew?
Not really. When you write you always put in some characteristics of people you know but they are completely imagined.
How did you go about researching the literary links (at the start of each chapter) and why did you choose the characters you did?
Google is a beautiful thing. What did we do before there was such an amazing search engine??? After we outlined our chapters and knew basically what would happen in each, it was easy to just google different quotes that we thought would be relevant. We also have a big love for Hafiz and Milton’s, Paradise Lost is a favorite for one of us. J
How do you feel knowing that many much older adults are fans of your YA novels?
We love it! We read YA all the time and we are older too. We always wanted our audience to be diverse so it’s a dream come true.
How did a Norse God end up being the psuedo grandfather to Devilyn and Tatiana?
Colet: I have serious obsession with Vikings. I take full responsibility.
About the movie. How are things progressing?
Scott Free has been amazing. They’ve found the writer for the screenplay and she is AWESOME. We hope they’ll make an announcement soon. She is seriously half FAE and totally magikal!
Thank you Colet and Jasmine, as usual you have been very accomodating.
I’m sure you will agree there are some intering comments and how exciting is it to know how the movie is progressing?
If you have any further questions you would like us to pass on to our favourite authors, drop us a line in the comments or on facebook!
We asked readers of Fae to give a review of the book. We particularly loved this one. Read for youself and see if you agree!
I absolutely loved the book so I hope this gives it justice 🙂
What can I say ? This book is a such a good read I managed to read through it in just over 48hrs; impressive because I am currently on maternity leave with my six month old whilst also having a 3 year old and a husband and a boat load of housework !!.
The story between Caroline and Devilyn is just like your typical teenage romance but with a fantastic majik twist 🙂
Caroline is your typical bookworm character who’s life is turned upside down by a history project and a stunningly handsome boy Devilyn.
Devilyn is your stunningly handsome and talented jock with a twist. He is tasked with bringing together the light and the dark but can he do it ? Or will the darkness inside him win and will his fate with Caroline be lost forever ? (I hope not)
As you progress through the book you read typical scenarios that any teenager goes though, liking someone but do they like me back, rejection, popularity. The way in which the authors wrote the book it doesn’t feel at all cliche or done before because you get so wrapped up in the characters and their impending fate. You need these throwbacks to reality in order to relate to them and they help keep the story current although they’re are a lot of references to Greek mythology and Gods.
In other series of books I’ve read it has been completely one sided and your left wondering what the other character is feeling but C & J Abedi have written it from both Caroline’s and Devilyn’s point of view allowing you to engage with both and willing them on, to each other.
The power struggle between light and dark is a main storyline in the book with one winning at the end of this book but throughout you do question which is going to win overall, which makes it interesting and gripping.
The ending is a cliff hanger that will leave you wanting so much more and praying that it doesn’t end there……. Which it doesn’t because May 2014 book 2 comes out and even the synopsis of that will give you a clue 😉
So overall a fantastic read for all ages to relate to and a book that will leave you wanting more. A love story that is finally written without all the perfectness; it has flaws and holes like every romance but will it be the romance to unite dark and light or will darkness take over
ROLL ON MAY !! Xx
You all know that the music of Toby Rand’s band ‘London Cries’ appears in the book so we asked Fae authors Jasmine and Colet what other music inspires them. Here’s what they told us.
“Because we both listen to different types of music and often send our picks back and forth to each other of good songs….songs that get us in the mood to write. We LOVE anything London Cries.”
My favorites include:
“If a song gets me in the mood to write I usually listen to it over and over again…pretty crazy” 🙂
The Piano Guys
Last of the Mohicans soundtrack
We have become pretty fond of London Cries too and can relate to ethereal sounds of Enya!! Which artists or songs have reminded you of Fae? Check out one of our favourites from London Cries – Save a Life
The mystical faerie world merged with Hollywood nightlife as Tamsin Lonsdale’s world-famous Supper Club and Tequila Avion hosted the FAE book launch party. Held at swank hot spot Sadie Kitchen and Lounge, guests came in their best “light and dark” garb to celebrate the novel’s fantasy themes, which has been billed as a possible successor to the Twilight series.
Authors Colet and Jasmine Abedi (known as CJ Abedi for the book series) kicked off the evening with a VIP cocktail party, where master mixologist Giovanni Martinez demonstrated how to make each of the Tequila Avión cocktails that were created especially for the party — all of which were named after important characters from the book.
The stunning co-host for the event was actress Nicky Whelan (above). She was joined by a guest list of beauties, including Chad Michael Murray (also above), Colin Egglesfield, Robert Buckley, Chelsea Kane, Derek Theler, Beverly Hills Housewife Brandi Glanville and new Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast memeber Carlton Gebbia. Party patrons were also treated to a private musical performance by Australian rock band Toby Rand and London Cries.
Darkness descends over Roanoke Island in the sequel to the young adult bestseller, FAE.
Devilyn Reilly has crossed over to the sinister world of The Dark Fae, reigning over the realm as its King. He is to fulfill a prophecy–to unite the Light and Dark Fae once and for all, but those who love him now fear that he will never be the same again, that he can no longer be trusted, that every trace of the Light he once had is gone forever.
Caroline Ellis, the final heir of the Light Fae, must learn to survive without the protection of her one true love. She must come to embrace her own strength to evade those in the Dark court who seek her destruction—for the power is within Caroline to use Light to change Fate itself…
Caroline and Devilyn’s chemistry is undeniable. Their destiny together inevitable if only they have the will to overcome The Darkness and The Fates.
THE DARK KING, the second installment of the stunning Fae trilogy propels readers into the mystical and magical world of the Light and Dark Fae, where star-crossed love ignites a battle between two powerful kingdoms, one that can consume everything that stands in its path.
The Dark King due for release on May 6th 2014, can be pre-ordered for kindle download now.
My soul has always felt the battle. Always known what was to come. But never did I imagine the darkness that would consume me so completely without shame or fear…..#theDARKking #May2014
Ever since the first Twilight novel became the phenomenon that it did, with a fan base in it’s millions, readers have been looking for the next big ‘thing’! Well, we think the Fae Trilogy is it. In an article in First to Know published back in August,Colet Abedi explains the inspiration behind the story.
“At the heart of FAE, we have a beautiful love story between two soulmates that can never be,” explains authors C.J. Abedi. That’s right, authors. The series is written by sisters Colet and Jasmine Abedi, who both hold a deep passion for fantasy romance stories. The explain, “We’ve created a mystical world that is ruled by ancient, sacred laws. Readers who appreciate love stories, magic and ancient legends will enjoy this trilogy.”
The inspiration behind the story came from “a general obsession with the legend of Tuatha de Danann, fairies, the concept of dark versus light, and Jasmine’s daughter, Ella,” explains Colet Abedi. “The idea of writing about a tall, dark, handsome, brooding, mysterious lead character had massive appeal as well,” she adds with a smile.
With director Ridley Scott buying the rights to the movie, we are excited to watch the Fae Trilogy fandom explode!!
