Book Trailer: All That Glows by Ryan Graudin

Sparks will fly

Emrys—a fiery, redheaded Fae—always embraced her life in the Highlands, far from the city's draining technology, until she's sent to London to rejoin the Faery Guard. But this isn't any normal assignment—she's sent to guard Prince Richard: Britain's notorious, partying bad boy and soon-to-be king. The prince's careless ways and royal blood make him irresistible to the dark spirits that feed on mortals. Sweet, disheveled, and alive with adventure—Richard is one charge who will put Emrys's magic and heart to the test.

When an ancient force begins preying on the monarchy, Emrys must hunt through London's magical underworld, facing down Banshees, Black Dogs, and Green Women to find the one who threatens Richard's life. In this chaos of dark magic, palace murders, and paparazzi, Emrys finds herself facing an impossible choice. For despite all her powers, Emrys has discovered a force that burns brighter than magic: love.

The restroom is empty, with one obvious exception. A pair of forest-green stilettos peeks out from the bottom of the final stall. My heart flutters at the sight. I practically fly the distance and wrench the door open.
The prince leans against the side of the stall, head wreathed in obscene graffiti and eyes half closed with the weight of his evening drinks. The second Green Woman lurks close; her pale hair spills across his chest as she leans in. Her head jerks around when the door opens, eyes lit dark with rage. When she sees me, all the beauty of her flesh melts away. Her pink skin withers to a sickly greenish gray, like some corpse frozen in the depths of a peat bog. The teeth beneath her mottled lips grow ragged, meant for tearing tendon from bone. She hisses and grips her prey with long, ratty fingernails.
Although I've fought Green Women before, this one's ghoulish grin is unnerving. I have to look at Richard and see the smooth, unblemished skin of his throat to remember why I'm here.
I launch myself between her and the prince. At the same moment she lunges, grungy teeth aimed for Richard's throat. I catch the bite with my shoulder, gasping with shock as the pain lances my bone. The force of my body throws the prince onto the toilet, far from the Green Woman's reach. He blinks slowly; his jaw grows slack at what he sees.
The Green Woman shrieks with frustration as she pulls away from me. Dark blood coats her teeth and stains her lips. Her feral eyes wheel to where the prince is slouched over the toilet. There's intense, desperate hunger behind her gaze. She'd do anything to have him.
