At book’s end CJ offers the following Author’s Note, well worth repeating, especially for potential readers of this novel MY FAIR TRAITOR. ‘Developing Crysta’s character has been a bit cathartic for me in the sense that many of the things I grappled with as a teenager were things I gave to Crysta to deal with and eventually overcome. The concept of loving and accepting yourself was an important one I wish I would have learned at a younger age, and that’s why I’ve been so eager to help family members and others learn it sooner than I did. The subject of rape and sexual abuse was one I had to battle with for many years. Just like Crysta. I spent a lot of time pretending that what happened to me when I was young and defenseless had never happened at all. I failed to see that burying the trauma of that experience ended up coloring every aspect of my life from my choices in clothing, to my friends, and especially in relationships and the type of men I found myself attracted to. When you don’t value yourself, bad boys tend to be the name of the game, and rarely do they value you on any level. Since you’re incapable of saving yourself you feel this overwhelming desire to save them. Always turns out badly in the end. I also learned that I wasn’t the only one suffering from the effects of sexual abuse, but I wasn’t willing to talk about it or help others through it until I finally admitted the reality of my situation when I was twenty-three.
I had to fix myself first. You really can’t be of much use to anyone when you’re all broken inside. Once I stopped blaming myself, stopped believing I was worthless, and started to believe I deserved to be loved and cherished, I began to notice others in similar situations. There’s a specific type of body language inherent in those who have been abused. You look for exits in a crowded room. You position yourself in a certain way based on the amount of people or the sex of the people within the same room as you.’ Tender, thoughtful, caring – and a very fine setup for this novella.
The synopsis is succinct: ‘It's not everyday a girl gets married to a faerie prince of the Seelie Court. After swearing their love and loyalty to one another, Jareth is bound and determined to teach Crysta all she must learn to become queen of the Unseelie Court. But when Crysta and Jareth are attacked in the human realm, a journey to the Fae realm is put into play earlier than planned. Their hopes for marriage and a happily ever after are thwarted when their bonding fails and attempts on Crysta's life continue. That's not all they have to worry about. A magical plague has permeated the land, causing Fae everywhere to weaken and die, solidifying King Moridan's objections to their union. Jareth and Crysta must fight for their right to love each other in a world full of beings who believe their fated mate bond is a threat to the Fae realm and every faerie who inhabits it. Is their love preordained or poisonous? There's only one way to find out.
Fine writing with an entertaining story supportive of real life differences. Grady Harp, April 17
