"An ancient rite performed in modern times. A lone woman unaware of her destiny. A preternatural creature hunts for one soul to claim for his own. What havoc will be wrought when the three intertwine? Can two beings from vastly different worlds find peace together, or are they doomed to walk between worlds forever?"
“OK, I’ll humor you for a minute. If you are not human, what are you?”
“I am sluagh.”
Giana stopped cold in her tracks. “Sluagh? Are you shitting me?”
“I assure you that I am not.” Ashtalon shook his head.
Giana was glad he didn’t make a smart-ass comment. He seemed to take things so literally. “Sluagh are restless dead.”
“That is not entirely correct.”
“I don’t understand. What are sluagh if not the wandering spirits of dead sinners?”
“We are faerie in origin.”
“Unseelie, I would assume?” Giana raised an eyebrow.
“Quite so,” Ashtalon agreed. “Sluagh are thought to be dead but in fact, we are only transmogrified after our original fae bodies died. Faeries are thought to be immortal and most are. It is not an easy thing to kill a faerie, though it is not impossible. When a faerie dies, particularly an Unseelie faerie, sometimes the spirit does not pass on. Instead it warps and manifests into form again. This is how sluagh are created.”
“Are you going to kill me?”
“Why would you ask that?”
“I’m not completely dumb to mythology and lore. People always underestimate the Goths, thinking we’re drugged-out idiots.” She looked at him pointedly. “Sluagh try to take the souls of people who are about to die.”
“Mythology, lore,” he chuckled softly. “Humans always underestimate the fae.”
“Why are you here? Why is a stinking sluagh standing in my living room?”
“Do you not realize Giana?” His voice deepened as he stated each word slowly, deliberately. “I have come for you.”
