Back of the Book:
That’s the question Lila Gray asks every time yet another bad guy tries to destroy the earth, and she learns she’s the only one who can stop it. Once again, something’s on the prowl, leaving hundreds of comatose, soulless victims in its wake.
Couldn’t the deadliest assassins of the Otherworld go after someone else instead of the brand new Queen of the Seelie? One who still hasn’t adapted to her new role.
Lila would ask Liam Kane, King of the Unseelie, for advice, but something’s off with him, too. He’s holding back. In some way. About some thing. In fact, he refuses to tell her what’s going on.
The truth holds Lila back from the greatness of her role—the people she was born to lead—the man who she desperately loves—and the solution to the latest war raging around her.
To find the answers, she’ll need to fight through her own darkness and embark on a journey through her psyche.
If she doesn’t succeed, the Shadowborn will claim not only her world, but her soul.
About Jocelyn Adams
Jocelyn Adams grew up on a cattle farm in Lakefield and has remained a resident of Southern Ontario her entire life, most recently in Muskoka. She has worked as a computer geek, a stable hand, a secretary, and spent most of her childhood buried up to the waist in an old car or tractor engine with her mechanically inclined dad. But mostly, she’s a dreamer with a vivid imagination and a love for fantasy (and a closet romantic — shhh!). When she isn’t shooting her compound bow in competition or writing, she hangs out with her husband and young daughter at their little house in the woods.
Jocelyn Adams will now take your questions:
Q. Tell us about your book!
Love to! Shadowborn is the middle child of the Lila Gray Trilogy. While The Glass Man focused on Lila, who she was and who she will be, book two centers more on the relationships between Lila and everyone else, especially a certain dark fae, and her growth as a woman and a leader. It also introduces a villain born of shadow, who threatens not only Lila, but everyone with a soul.
Q. What is Lila Gray’s greatest strength, biggest flaw?
Lila is fiercely loyal and powerful, and a life lived in the wild places while running from Parthalan has hardened her for the tasks ahead. The source of her greatest strength is also the cause of her greatest weakness. While her hardness allowed her to survive, it has also given her a stone crust around her heart. Letting others into her deep places is going to take someone who’s as stubborn and determined as she is most of the time. J
Q. What is the hardest part of writing for you?
Keeping the voices quiet. What? Did I really say that out loud? *snort* Seriously, though, it’s the truth no matter how crazy it sounds. My mind likes to weave stories, and sometimes it’s not always keen on concentrating on what I want/need to write.
Q. What one question do you wish an interviewer would ask you but never has?
How did you survive four older siblings? My answer would be that I eventually grew strong enough to fight back. As for what I did up until that point … where do you think I learned how to plot? 😉
Q. What are you working on now? Do you tend to work on multiple projects or one at a time?
My current WIP is a paranormal romance between a wood nymph and a werewolf. I’m stretching my wings on this one a little, exploring the depths of my characters to a greater extent than ever before. Oh, geez, you know me on the multiple projects dealy. J I have three novels at least half done or greater, a couple more that are begun, and I’m sure I’ll knock off a few more short stories before long, too. How do I turn it off?!
Q. What is your favorite line from this book?
Definitely this one – it sums up Lila’s constant struggle with her feelings for Liam: I tilted my face forward, unable to speak the lie that would make him go away, or the truth that would make him stay.
Q. What are you reading right now? Do you read a book at a time or more than one?
I’m completely engrossed in Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling paranormal romance series. Unique world, strong characters, two of my favorite things. I tend to devour one book and go right into the next.
Q. What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Any hobbies?
Right now my six year old tends to consume all of my free time, and I love it. Other than dabbling with my web page, writing and reading are my time-fillers of choice.
Q. Who is your favorite writer now?
Without a doubt, it has to be Karen Marie Moning, though Nalini Singh & Ilona Andrews come close seconds. The depth of KMM’s characters has me enthralled every single time. Jericho Barrons from her Fever series is my favorite literary personalities of all time. I usually have a character figured out quickly, but up until the last book, I still didn’t know who or what he was.
