Isn't that book trailer captivating? If that trailer doesn't get you to the bandwagon then you are missing out on something special. I'm just honored that Ms. Kendare Blake was able to give up her time to do an interview for her latest book, One Dark Throne. You guys should surely get it and experience this unique fantasy sequel.
1. First off, describe your experience during Solar Eclipse Day (Aug. 21, 2017)?
Well, it wasn't too exciting. We kept the dogs inside so we wouldn't have to fit them with doggles, and just noted how odd the light got. And then it was over.
2. Could you give us an interesting fun fact about One Dark Throne?
I re-wrote it once. And in the first draft, fewer people died.
3. What challenges did you face writing the sequel to Three Dark Crowns?
Sequels are easier in a way, because the world and the conflicts have been established and simmering. But One Dark Throne was meant to be a series ender as well, and endings are always rough. Then we decided to extend the series by two more books, so I was actually able to go back in and leave a few smaller plot lines open. So it was all less tied up in a bow.
4. In one word how would you summed up One Dark Throne?
5. Could you give a brief description of your favorite scene from One Dark Throne? (make it as spoiler-free as possible)
I love dialogue. I love the scenes where characters finally come face to face and start to understand each other.
6. Could you give a sneak peek about any new character in One Dark Throne?
Sure. She's a chicken. A pretty, brown chicken.
7. What is your favorite book-to-movie adaptation?
Too hard! The Shawshank Redemption is a great adaptation. So is the Neverending Story, though the author disagrees. I'm really, REALLY excited for the new IT. Though I did love the original IT, too.
8. What was the last book you gave to someone as a gift?
I gave my best friend Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics, because it's like Stephen King wrote Little House on the Prairie, and my friend LOVES Little House.
9. What television show do you think doesn’t get its due?
Penny Dreadful. I adored that show. Eva Green is transcendent. And it made me like Josh Hartnett again, which was previously inconceivable.
10. What was the scariest book you’ve ever read?
Pet Sematary? I don't know. I don't scare easy.
11. Which book (besides yours of course) have you read that made you laugh a lot?
Anything by Lish McBride. She's hysterical. Highly recommend her new one: PYROMANTIC. About a girl who controls fire and works for a shady, magic mafia. She has a friend who is a sexy were-fox. A vain, sexy were-fox. You can't beat it.
12. Did you ever listen to music while writing One Dark Throne?
Afraid not. I find music too distracting.
13. What book do you like to read over and over again?
LOTS. Jane Eyre, Anne Rice, various Stephen King passages, the Iliad, etc. I don't actually have a lot of time for re-reading anymore, with so much new reading to do!
14. Last question, could you share a quote or two that inspire or motivate you in life?
I despise myself, yet I also esteem myself as one who despises. - Nietzsche. I probably messed that quote up, and I don't find it all that inspiring. But it amuses me.
And there you have it. Another delightful interview from a fantastic author. I greatly appreciate her for doing this and I hope those reading this would read what this unique, fantasy series is all about. The first book being Three Dark Crowns and now the sequel One Dark Throne. Both books are already available where books are sold. Thanks for visiting my blog once again and I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Keep calm and read more books:)
