New LGBTQ Book For Young Adults Combines Kick-Ass Heroines And Urban Fantasy

MORIBUND, Book 1 of The Circuit Fae by Genevieve Iseult Eldredge is now live at Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, Barnes And Noble, and GooglePlay.

Newton, MA – September 12, 2017 – Monster House Books LLC (MHB) today announced that a new title is now live: MORIBUND, book 1 in The Circuit Fae series by Genevieve Iseult Eldredge (GIE). With 4+ star average ratings at Goodreads, MORIBUND has earned praise for combining a modern setting with fae lore and strong lesbian heroines.

“Fantasy is often criticized for the lack of female protagonists,’” says Kelly Peterson, Director, INscribe Digital, a division of Independent Publishers Group (IPG). “We’re thrilled to distribute The Circuit Fae series because GIE does a phenomenal job of combining action, adventure, and romance for young adults. Prestreet excitement for the title has been phenomenal, both in terms of reviews and order volume. We think this is more than a book—it’s a trend to watch.”

There are currently three releases announced for Circuit Fae 0.5: Derailed – The Moribund Prequel Novella (Spring 2018), Circuit Fae 1: Moribund (Fall 2017), and Circuit Fae 2: Ouroboros (Fall 2018). More information on all titles may be found at

Praise for MORIBUND

“Moribund is a little bit Throne of Glass, a little bit Buffy, and a whole lot sexy. All the elements of a great YA adventure are there: first love, coming of age, and battling the dark Fae in a sparkly prom dress. Syl and Euphoria will reel you in, the sudden twists will keep you guessing, and the nailbiter finish will have you cheering” – Skye Allen, author of The Songbird Thief

“Cheeky, heartfelt, full of magic and mayhem. How could you not love two female protagonists finding themselves and each other in a snarky angsty drama full of fun?” – Nat, Goodreads

“I recommend Moribund to fans of original fae lore when it comes to their Urban Fantasy cravings, engaging stories about self-discovery while juggling almost-crushing responsibilities, and overcoming adversity in adrenaline-fueling life-and-death situations. It comes with a good serving of sweet and angstylicious FxF teen romance plus strong, kick-ass (and snarky-ish) heroines you’ll love both as a couple and on their own.” – Liv Olteano, author of Thirteen Mercies, Three Kills


Dark Fae. Romance. Evil Plots. High school. Our heroines could be in for the greatest adventure ever. If only they could decide whether to kill or kiss each other.

High school sophomore Syl Skye is an ordinary girl. At least, she’s trying to be. School photographer and all-around geek, she introverts hard and keeps her crush on sexy-hot glam-Goth alt-rock star Euphoria on the down-low. But when a freak accident Awakens her slumbering power, Syl is forced to accept a destiny she never wanted—as the last sleeper-princess of the fair Fae.

Suddenly hunted by the dark Fae, Syl’s pretty sure things can’t get any worse. Until she discovers her secret crush, Euphoria, is really a dark Circuit Fae able to harness the killing magic in technology. Even worse, she’s been sent to destroy Syl.

With mean girls and magic and dark Fae trying to kill her, it’ll take more than just “clap if you believe in fairies” to save Syl’s bacon—not to mention, her heart.

About the Author

Raised by witches and dragons in the northern wilds, GIE writes angsty urban fantasy YA romance–where girls who are mortal enemies kick butt, take names, and fall in love against all odds.

She enjoys long hikes in the woods (where better to find the fair folk?), believing in fairies (in fact, she’s clapping right now), dancing with dark elves (always wear your best shoes), being a self-rescuing princess (hello, black belt!), and writing diverse books about teenage girls finding love, romance, and their own inner power. She might be planning high tea at the Fae Court right now.

GIE is multi-published, and in her role as an editor has helped hundreds of authors make their dream of being published a reality.
