FEATURE and GIVEAWAY: Devoured by Darkness by Alexandra Ivy


Book Interview on January 2011

Hi Alexandra, thanks for taking the time out to answer a few of our questions regarding your latest release, DEVOURED BY DARKNESS. We do admit we can't ever get enough of your Guardians!

Q: How would you describe DEVOURED BY DARKNESS? What would you share with new readers as a way to entice them to your series?

DEVOURED BY DARKNESS continues the saga of the Guardians of Eternity, strong, skilled, seductive vampires chosen to protect--and to destroy. These Guardians will risk anything to fulfil their duty, and satisfy their desires?

Q: How did you come up with the idea behind the storyline in DEVOURED BY DARKNESS?

The story began in the previous book, Beyond the Darkness, where Tane was introduced as a Charon (vampire assassin). I knew I wanted his story to be next and when Laylah disappeared from the tunnels, I had to send him in pursuit. I also wanted to up the ante on the storyline running through the Guardian novels, so I have an ongoing thread of a looming battle with the Dark Lord that I hope adds tension for the readers who have been with the stories from the beginning and yet allows people to pick up the book and enjoy it alone. It's always a fine balance!!

Q: One of the things I found interesting about Laylah and Tane was that they both understood what it felt like to be feared and alone, never feeling accepted or trusted. When deciding which of your characters you wanted to pair up together as a couple, did Laylah and Tane seem like a natural choice to you or did you originally have them paired with someone else?

They were a very natural choice!! I knew from the moment that I created Tane he would have to have a strong mate who could understand his vulnerabilities and help him learn to trust again! I also wanted Laylah to have her own weaknesses that she had to overcome. :) Giving her a baby to protect...
