Now it is time for an interview with Cvareh! 

If you could make the perfect outfit what would it be ?

What a relief to be speaking with someone so sensible. When Ari told me we were conducting these interviews, I was worried I’d be stuck answering normal Fenthri questions about gears and bolts… The perfect outfit, of course, changes from season to season. You seem to be well put together yourself, I won’t insult your sensibilities on that fact… But, for me… I do take a shining to vests. A month ago in Napole I saw a few smart-looking gentlemen wearing wide-legged trouser that had no tapering at the knee, so I’d be very curious to try that… Perhaps in a seafoam blue with gold embellishments? To really bring out the jewel tones in my skin and warmth of my hair.

What do you think your greatest strength is?

I’m a fairly unambitious Dragon. Just ask anyone in the Dragon court. They’ll tell you the woes of the weakest brother in House Xin. Certainly no great strengths here to speak of… Especially none that the Dragon King should worry over…

Would you rather be stuck in a room with Florence, Ari, or Leona for 24hours?

Certainly not the King’s Bitch. Arianna… She… Well… I doubt she’d have any interest in spending a that many hours in a row with me confined to a room, unless it was a very, very large room. Just taking the train to that port in the Revolver’s Territory nearly got me killed. I’ll say Florence, she’s by far the most level-headed… Which, is ironic, since she’s easily the youngest… And, she gave me a cookie once.

What makes you laugh?

On the isle of Ruana there’s this performing troupe that tours from Napole up the far side of the island from the Xin Manor. They put on the funniest performances in the springtime during harvesting at the vineyards. I have never found myself laughing so hard as I did then–even my sister, Petra, laughed! Though, the wine may have helped!


Hope you all enjoyed this interview with Cvareh himself! ;P

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can’t find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exis …more

REVIEW:

A wonderful spin on Hades and Persephone 

When it firsts starts she’s in this place with Cole and she can’t stop thinking about someone she is forgetting.

Jack.

She get’s out of this . . . world? and she finds out she’ll only have 6 months basically to live before she get’s pulled into this dark underworld. Which I completely forget the name of it . . .

Nikki Beckett was a troubled teenager, I guess. I forget WHAT happened exactly on why she left with Cole, it has been a little bit 😄 but I do know it involved her Boyfriend JACK.

OH WAIT! I know. But I won’t mention it for spoiler reasons.

Anyways  I didn’t really like Nikki, she was kind of annoying . . . but I did like Cole! he was cool. Jack was cool too.

There were a lot of parts that were completely predictable but I didn’t really care because I was enjoying the plot. So friggin much!

Another thing that annoyed me was when she wanted to go back to ‘earth’ for her family to be with her loved ones and you didn’t really see her family. She was in her room, at school, or with Cole or Jack. It wasn’t a big deal, but I felt like they should have been more apart of the story. especially her little brother

JACK, I wasn’t a fan of him. He didn’t do anything wrong, I just liked Cole better.

COLE, was awesome. I mean, I don’t really know exactly what he would be called other than Cole. But his “work” was weird. I understand why Nikki didn’t want to go with him, because she didn’t want to live to hurt other people. To take life from other people . . . but I liked Cole a lot and she would’ve made everything soooo much easier if she just went with him.

Just saying.

All in all, I give it a 4/5 stars! it was a fun read and highly enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Mythology and romance, definitely swoon scenes ;P

If you read it comment the link to your review for me to read or just tell me how you liked it! ❤

Cvareh returns home to his sky world of
Nova with the genius crafter Arianna as his temperamental guest. The mercurial
inventor possesses all the Xin family needs to turn the tides of a
centuries-old power struggle, but the secrets she harbors must be earned with
trust — hard to come by for Ari, especially when it comes to Dragons. On Nova,
Ari finds herself closer to exacting vengeance against the traitor who killed
everything — and everyone – she once loved. But before Ari can complete her
campaign of revenge, the Crimson Court exposes her shadowed past and reveals
something even more dangerous sparking between her and Cvareh.
 
While Nova is embroiled in blood sport
and political games, the rebels on Loom prepare for an all-out assault on their
Dragon oppressors. Florence unexpectedly finds herself at the forefront of
change, as her unique blend of skills — and quick-shooting accuracy — makes her
a force to be reckoned with. For the future of her world, she vows vengeance
against the Dragons.
 
Before the rebellion can rise, though,
the Guilds must fall.

INTERVIEW


 

1- How long have you been writing? 

Since high school, but when I went to college I quit for about 15 years. I’ve been writing again for a good four years now, and have finished a university Creative Writing certificate in that time.

 

2- Is there a certain genre you’d like to get into? 

I’m writing two YA contemporaries next. One is a mystery story and one is a coming of age story. I can’t wait to release these two on the world!

3- Who designed your (latest) book cover? 

Deranged Doctor – isn’t it amazing!!

 

4- Where do your ideas come from? 

The world around me, movies, and other stories. Anything and everything can become a story. The options are limitless.

 

5- If you weren’t a writer, what would you be doing? 

Well I do work full-time in the business industry. Maybe one day I’ll be able to write full-time!

 

6- Do you ever experience writers block? If so how do you get over it? 

Whenever I come up with a new story idea I write it down. As of right now I have 22 outlined stories (some partially written). Then I try to make myself write one at a time, but if I get stuck, I always move onto one of my next stories.

 

7- How did you come up with your title? 

Summoner Rising was originally The Thing About Shadows. My publisher felt it was too close to my first series, There Once Were Stars. I brainstormed different words and combinations for a week and then BANG – it hit me. I instantly loved Summoner Rising and so did my publisher. Win, win!

 

8- What is your perfect writing spot?

Somewhere quiet in front of a window. As long as there isn’t a brick wall on the other side I think I could make any scene I see into a story.

9- What do you do in your free time? 

Up until the beginning of April I’ve been taking night classes for the past five years. I am so happy to be finished and now able to write full-time in my part-time (haha does that make sense?).

 

10-Anything you’d like to add? 

I’m loving this interview!

 

FUN

 

11- Do you write friends, family, or even strangers you met into your novels? 

Yes, I absolutely do! However, no one character in my books represents a single person. They’re more like mish-mashes of multiple people. I find it’s easier getting into a character’s head to see how they would react when I’m using people I know. And of course, that includes part of myself.

 

12- If you were a superhero what would your name be?

Ha! Omg I have no idea. My favourite popular super heroes are Wolverine and Batman. But some of my other favourites are Lara Croft, Aeon Flux, and Alice from Resident Evil. So if I could be a combination of all of the above (like my characters are) I think I’d be some sort of Robin Hood girl version, fighting for the weak and innocent against real life monsters.

 


HAHA

SO happy you liked the interview! Robin woman? haha

Thank you so very much for letting me interview you today, Melanie McFarlane! I adored your answers they were amazing!

I hope you all enjoyed the LAST interview of MFBLFest!

Have a wonderful day, and

HAPPY READING, LUVs
