“But that's what dreams are for—to weave reality and fantasy and memory and stitch together something you can't hope for in waking life. To fulfill that little part of you that wants something so bad.”
“I haven’t apologized yet.”
“Mmm, right. Do you want to do that? Or just pretend you did?”
“I made a conscious decision to do what I thought was right, knowing that you would likely disagree. I’m sorry if you thought it was the wrong decision.”
“That’s kinda like an apology. Sure, I’ll take it.”
the two made a deal. If Matilda went to Arawn on her wedding day, she'd be his, and the world of the fae closed to her forever. If she stayed with Gwynn, the world of the Hunt would close instead. Of course, neither told Matilda about the pact.So in the myth it wasn't just Matilda but all three who made choices that turned out disastrously. Now Liv, Gabriel, and Ricky are the latest threesome drawn into these roles through their ancestry: both Gabriel and Liv's mother come from the Fair Folk of Cainsville, and both Ricky and Liv's father have forebears in the Wild Hunt. Can Liv work out a healthy relationship, or will this go the way of stereotypical romantic triangles?
The night before her wedding [to Gwynn], Matilda left for one last hunt with her old friend Arawn. As she saw the gates to the fae world close, she raced back, only to be consumed by the fiery abyss. Unable to save her, both young men blamed themselves and each other, and their worlds had been at odds ever since.
