Short Interview with Chloe Neill

bladebound_bug

Thanks to Chloe Neill for answering my questions!

Francesca : Would you like to be a vampire, a witch or a shifter?

Chloe Neill : Probably a witch. I’d rather be “myself,” but with powers. Invisibility, the ability to fly, the ability to summon Diet Coke at will. 🙂

Francesca : How did you feel when you’ve finished writing Blade Bound?

Chloe Neill : I cried. I was very sad to say goodbye to Merit and Ethan, but very glad to give them a Happily Ever After.

Thanks so much for having me today!

Short Interview with Merit

bladebound_bug

With the official blog tour, I had the opportunity to ask a couple of questions to our favorite badass heroine, Merit, the Sentinel of the Cadogan House.

Francesca : What do you prefer the most about Ethan?

Merit : His shy nature and modesty. 😉 Just kidding. There’s not a shy or modest bone in his very gorgeous body.  He may be imperious and stubborn, but he would do anything to help his House and his vampires, and I admire that tremendously.
I’m proud to be one of them.

Francesca : How do you imagine your life if you have not been turned into a vampire?

Merit I think Ethan said it best–I’d be sitting in some dark library, staring at books for too many hours of the day. Not that I don’t spend the occasional long night in the House library, but there’s more to my life than just research.

The thrilling final installment of Chloe Neill’s New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series sees a sinister sorcery advancing across Chicago, and it may usher in the fall of Cadogan House… 

Since the night of her brutal attack and unwilling transformation to vampire, Merit’s stood as Sentinel and protector of Chicago’s Cadogan House.  She’s saved the Windy City from the forces of darkness time and again with her liege and lover, Ethan Sullivan, by her side.

When the House in infiltrated and Merit is attacked by a vampire seemingly under the sway of dark magic, Merit and Ethan realize the danger is closer than they could have ever imagined.  As a malign sorcery spreads throughout the city, Merit must go to war against supernatural powers beyond her comprehension.  It’s her last chance to save everything—and everyone—she loves.

Short Interview with Ethan Sullivan

mm_tour

With the official blog tour stop on February 29th on The World of Francesca, I had the opportunity to ask our beloved Ethan Sullivan, Master of Cadogan House, 2 questions.

Francesca : What do you prefer the most about Merit?

Ethan : She is a strong woman with a tender heart, and bravery beyond the telling of it.  She is like no woman I’ve ever met before.

Francesca : Have you ever regret some of your decisions at the beginning of your relationship with Merit?

Ethan : I don’t enjoy having regrets, and try not to make decisions that lead to them. We have grown together, and both needed to grow, to be willing to be vulnerable, in order to find each other.

Short Interview of Chloe Neill

With the official blog tour stop on February 29th on The World of Francesca, I had the opportunity to ask Chloe Neill 2 questions.

chloe-neill

Francesca : Merit loves to eat. Why a such fixation on food in the series?

Chloe Neill : Because Merit loves to eat. 🙂 That’s part of who she is and what Chicago is, so she relates to her friends, enemies, and setting in that way.

Francesca : Do you ever think of writing from Ethan’s point of view?

Chloe Neill : Not really. These are Merit’s stories. While Ethan undoubtedly has his own stories to tell, I’m focused right now on telling Merit’s. 🙂

Description

A vampire’s grudges don’t stay dead long…

Merit is one of Chicago’s most skilled vampire warriors; these days, she doesn’t scare easily. But she and Master vampire Ethan have made a new and powerful enemy, and he won’t give up until he owns the Windy City.

With his last plan thwarted, he’s more determined than ever to watch Cadogan burn. Ethan has put the House’s vampires on high alert, but their enemy will stop at nothing, including pitting vampire against vampire…

In this deadly game of cat-and-mouse, the stakes are life or death—and winning might mean sacrificing everything…

Interview : Pintip Dunn

Forget Tomorrow

Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn is a very good YA dystopian novel!

Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided…

by your future self. 

It’s Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she’s eagerly awaiting her vision―a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they’re meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist. 

Or in Callie’s case, a criminal. 

In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo―a hellish prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes. 

But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all—Callie, herself. 

I was lucky to have made an interview with Pintip Dunn.
