Chasing Fae

For fans of Sarah J. Maas and Cassandra Clare comes Chasing Fae, a story of bravery, determination, and unexplored horizons.

They took my brother from me.

In one moment, young mortal Grace Richardson has her world torn apart when her older brother, Leo dies while serving as a mercenary in the fabled Fae’s realm. When his body doesn’t return home, there is only one answer: foul play. Overcome by grief, Grace decides to disguise herself as a Fae and sneak into their world to get some answers.

But I will make them pay.  

When a handsome, outspoken Fae soldier discovers her true identity, he offers to help. Guarded and trying to find middle ground with her Fae ally, Grace uncovers much more than she bargained for. Political conspiracies, demon realm escapades, and family secrets will all lead her to the answers she’s looking for… and some that she isn’t.


Cady Hammer has spun a riveting world with engaging characters, a whirlwind plot and a healthy dose of mystery to pull the reader along. A strong debut novel, this is a story guaranteed to delight fantasy fans. The world-building is rich and immersive, without bogging readers down in complicated terminology and exposition. I was hooked from the first page (not many books can tear my attention away from Brandon Sanderson’s writing, but this one did – and that it is the highest praise I can give!). I look forward to reading more of Hammer’s work, and watching her rise to the top of her genre. – D. M Cain, Author of the Light and Shadow Chronicles series

Hammer beautifully describes every scene Grace steps in, giving vivid details of the realms. Overall this is really a good book if you love everything Fae, love fantasy, slow-burning romance, and strong female protagonists. This is the perfect YA novel for you. – Miriam Yvette, Author of the Black Wings series

Chasing Fae is book one of an enchanting tale that delves into the differences between the Middle, Upper, and Lower Realms. It brings you on a journey of discovery, adventure, and love. Once Grace hops on that train I couldn’t put it down. She was always getting into something she wasn’t prepared for, meeting people who weren’t exactly who they said they were, and trying to follow leads that didn’t seem to lead anywhere. And the one place she finally finds important information about what she is seeking is in the last place she or Aiden would have expected. **Warning –  it does end on a slight cliffhanger. Not one of those ‘holy cow what happens next’ kind, more like the ‘I cannot wait to find out what happens next’ kind. Which I can’t. I’m looking forward to the next book and  whatever trouble Grace and Aiden get themselves into while discovering the meaning of the prophecy the Enchantress and her mages foretold. – Jennifer Hines, Author of The Strangers of Darkness series
