A to Z Challenge: The Letter Q - Queen

My A to Z Challenge contains names, places and things that are found in a series of books called The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning. If you haven't read these books, which I recommend, please be aware there will be spoilers.

Queen Aoibheal (pronounced Ah-veel) is the Fae queen, last in a long line of queens with an unusual empathy for humans. In Shadowfever, we learn the queen was once human herself and is the Unseelie King's long-lost concubine and soulmate. More than half a million years ago the Unseelie prince Cruce drugged her with a cup stolen from the Cauldron of Forgetting, erased her memory and abducted her, staging it, so the Unseelie King believed she was dead. Masquerading as the Seelie prince V'lane, Cruce hid her in the one place he knew the king of the Unseelie would never go - the Seelie Court. Prolonged time in Faery transformed Aoibheal, and she became what the king had desperately desired her to be: Fae and immortal. She is now the latest in a long line of Seelie Queens. Tragically, the original Seelie Queen was killed by the Unseelie King before she was able to pass on the Song of Making, the most powerful and beautiful of all Fae magic. Without it, the Seelie have changed. In Burned, the Unseelie king took the concubine to the White Mansion and imprisoned her inside the boudoir they once shared, to restore her memory.
