Age: 17

Stature: 6’2” tall

Race:
Noble Fae, a tall, wingless, magical people sometimes called the “Goodies” by their unscrupulous Dark Fae “cousins.”

She’s been a captive of the Dark Fae for three years but, in better times, she spent her time as a student.

Strengths: Harassing her older sister, and tempting famous rocker Axyl Thorne.

Flaw: Her infatuation with Axyl, and the Dark Fae.

Quirk: Her penchant for human rock music and fashion. Also, she and Lark are the only two Noble Fae with silver-white hair.

Animal familiar(s): At some point, probably in book two, she’ll acquire a gremlin named “Vexi.”

B’rook Tūrehu: Reveal #2

Brook Tūrehu

Another glimpse of Delfaerune Rhapsody character B’rook Tūrehu, as envisioned by Stacy Lefevre.

B’rook just turned 17, a coming of age in Delfaerune, and her edgy attitude is about as tall as her 6’2″ height.

Her penchant for human rock music makes her seriously jealous of her sister Lark’s iPod. But she has one thing her sister never will… famous Fae rocker Axyl Thorne.

B’rook Tūrehu: Reveal #1

Partial image of B'rook Turehu, character from Song of the Ocarina

First glimpse of Delfaerune Rhapsody character B’rook Tūrehu, as envisioned by Stacy Lefevre.

B’rook Tūrehu… sister to our heroine Lark. Both girls, daughters of the Magistrates of Magic and Music in the Fae realm of Delfaerune, are the only two Noble Fae with silver white hair.

Can you tell from her boots she’s a bit of a wild child? Maybe that’s why she’s fallen for famous rocker Axyl Thorne.

full character profile.

Debut of Delfaerune Rhapsody rocker Axyl Thorne, by Stacy Lefevre.

Age: 28

Stature: 6’10” tall

Race and class:
Axyl’s unique lineage affects his Fae race, but you’ll need to read the book to find out why. Though he currently prefers to hang out with Mikk Stone and the dark class of Fae—the tall, wingless, magical residents in the realm of Delfaerune—
Axyl remains neutral.

Residence:
Our rock star lives in a plane parallel to Queenstown, New Zealand, in the Fae world of Delfaerune.  There—in Queens’tyn, Zealynd—extinct and mythical creatures thrive, sentient foliage energize the Noble Fae, and speaking animals lend magical spell casting to the Dark Fae.

Job:
He’s a famous musician and leader of a band with the eponymic name “Thorne.” His raw talent and exceptional sex appeal draw women who follow him everywhere, and he makes it his job to keep them happy.

Strengths: Musical skill and the only Fae with the special power to meld stone silently with hand movements.

Flaw: His secret lineage.

Quirk: His soft-hearted love for one specific, notable, young woman of Noble lineage.

Animal familiar(s): His fangirls.

Love interestB’rook Tūrehu, our heroine’s sister.

Reveal #3: Axyl Thorne… oh, he of the luscious blond mane

A few things you should know about Axyl Thorne, the famous Fae rock star character in my pending Song of the Ocarina novel:

  • He’s kind of gorgeous and among the most talented musicians ever.
  • He picked the Bush Lawyer—a very thorny plant—as part of his marketing for his band “Thorne,” for a good reason.
  • Most Dark Fae pick an animal familiar to help befriend and protect them, but Axyl‘s only ever-present companion is his posse of fan girls. Hey, a posse provides the same basic support—with benefits—right?
  • His wandering eye is paused for the moment on our heroine Lark’s younger sister B’rook, who’s just coming of age.
  • He carries a secret about his lineage, which not even B’rook knows. As an opportunist, he likes to hang out with the Dark Fae, but is that where he really belongs?

To find out more, you’ll just have to read about it in Song of the Ocarina, the first book in my pending new-adult fantasy adventures — the Delfaerune Rhapsody series.

Axyl Thorne: Reveal #2

Reveal #2: Axyl Thorne, famous Fae rock star

Another peek at Axyl Thorne, famous Fae rock star. He’s 28 years old, at 6’10” his height matches his ego, but he does have a soft spot for rock ballads, and a certain Noble Fae chick, who just might be the daughter of a kidnapped Delfaerune magister. Oh, and did I mention his best buddy, our antagonist, is Mikk Stone?

Axyl’s artful hands hold a secret, and silent, skill beyond guitar riffs and picking… but I’m not telling you what. I guess you’ll just have to read about it in Song of the Ocarina, the first book in my pending new-adult fantasy adventures — the Delfaerune Rhapsody series.

Mash-up: Book giveaway, Back to The Future, and bad-boy rock-star Fae in New Zealand

What do movies, involvement of future readers, and bad-boy rock stars in New Zealand have to do with my stories? Find out in my guest blog today at L.H. Nicole’s Legendary  Web site. I talk about:

  • The world I’ve created, including how my Dark Fae characters are patterned after burned-out rock legends.
  • Why New Zealand is the perfect setting for this story.
  • Why Back To The Future inspired my writing, including one of it’s famous stars who was my movie buddy at Arizona State University.

Here’s a sneak peek at the cover of book one in my Delfaerune Rhapsody new-adult fantasy series!

I’m also giving away the second printed book of Song of the Ocarina. When I open my first shipment box (hopefully within a month), I claim the first book I pick up. The second one, though, could be yours. The lucky winner will be someone who comments on:

L.H. Nicole is a member of my young-adult fiction critique group and a great storyteller, so be sure to check out her books when you visit her site.

Hear 38 songs future readers contributed to my novel

I just created a Spotify playlist so you can hear 38 of the nearly 50 songs my future readers contributed to my pending novel Song of the Ocarina. Each of these songs will appear in the book as a tune my heroine Lark plays on her iPod, a melody one of the characters hums, or as background music at events throughout the plot line.

The story is filled with musicians, and my heroine is a musical prodigy, so expect a wide range of genres, with quite a few geared toward the 18–25-aged crowd.

Every future reader who suggested a song will see their name printed in my novel when it’s published (soon!). Check out my other blog entry for a sneak peak of that list.

Tell me what you think!

Axyl Thorne: Reveal #1

Reveal #1: Axyl Thorne, a famous Fae rock star

He may be a Dark Fae, or maybe he just chooses to hang with them. He may carry a full Fae bloodline, or he might not. One thing for sure, though, Axyl is a brilliant musician.

Constantly followed by a gaggle of fangirls, he’s a charmer, but he also holds a place in his heart for the heroine’s sister B’rook, who you will also meet in the coming days.

Axyl’s story unfolds in Song of the Ocarina, the first book in my new-adult fantasy adventures — the Delfaerune Rhapsody series.

The Noble Fae, or “Goodies,” in my pending Song of the Ocarina novel, are based on geographical features and natural elements. If you were a character in my book, what name might you have? Use the chart below to select your good faerie name.

Use the first letter of your first name, for either a guy or a gal, then use the first letter of your last name. Example: As a gal with a first name starting  with A, my Noble Fae first name is Raindrop. My last name starts with V, so my so my Noble Fae surname is Islander. Hello, Raindrop Islander!

If you haven’t already, from my recent post, you can also select your Dark Fae name, based on “bad boy” and “tough chick” rock stars.

Can you come up with a better Noble Fae name yourself? Please share.
