Reveal #4: Eighteen-year-old Lark stands 6’5″ feet tall, flies without wings, and is one of only two Noble Fae in Delfaerune with silver-white hair.
Lark Tūrehu, my heroine, and her sister B’rook are the only two fae with the color of hair shown in this image, throughout my Delfaerune Rhapsody series-in-progress. They are the daughters of the Magistrate of Glamour (magic), and the Magistra of Music.
I actually saw a young woman with hair this color at the Phoenix Comicon last month, although I doubt it came naturally. Do you know anyone with locks like this?
My heroine belongs to a race of fae, based on the original mythological fairies who, per The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Elves and Fairies, Chapter 9: “Elf and Fairy Behavior,” are “in Irish folklore…referred to as…opalescent beings…about 14 feet tall!”
Lark’s story unfolds, starting in the Song of the Ocarina, the first book in my young-adult, fantasy-adventure series, due out in late 2013.
Watch for more clues in the coming days to reveal Lark’s whole character image — and, also, image reveals of the books’ Dark Fae brothers: hero Noel and antagonist Mikk Stone. Also watch Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
