Character Interview: Lenah Beaudonte (Infinite Days) & Giveaway

I feel really lucky to be alive.  I know you’ll think I’m crazy.  I didn’t want to believe it either, but I’ve seen one with my own eyes.  I need to tell this story.  I’m still terrified.  I look over my shoulder all the time, waiting for it to get me.  I know it’s just a matter of time.  Let me start from the beginning.  It all started back in August.  I went to Europe with some friends from school.  We were still on break, living it up, doing things our parents wouldn’t imagine.  One night I got separated from my friends at a party.  Then I got lost and turned around.  I decided to take a “short cut” through Père Lachaise Cemetery on my way back to the hostel.  Alone in Europe.  Walking through a cemetery at night.  Not my best idea.  That’s when I saw it…I should say her.  The vampire, Lenah.  Lucky for me, Lenah was feeling charitable that night.  Well, I’m here and I’m not dead, but she’s followed me back to Wickham.  Let’s hope my luck doesn’t run out.

Interview with a Vampire

Evil Lenah:

DFT: People will soon find out when and how you became a vampire, do you have any regrets?

I never regret. Why bother? It’s not really in my nature to think on my past, I think of the future. What else have I got?

DFT: What are your flaws or weaknesses?

My mind is beginning to wane. I don’t know why I’m confessing this to you but either way… I suppose the more time that goes by the more I’m starting to feel like I’m on the fringe…This could make me extremely dangerous to you.

DFT: What is your greatest talent?

Medicinal healing and sword fighting. I am a woman of the medieval era. I grew up on an orchard, I was not born into an era or a household where I had access to many things. Over the decades, I perfected sword play, learned languages, and read…and read.

DFT: What is your post cherished possession?

A longsword of the Order of the Garter. It once belonged to Rhode but he is gone. I don’t know where so don’t ask me. This sword has seen many types of battle. Human battle, vampire battle, it is very powerful.

DFT: Tell us something that you have never told anyone.

I miss my mortal family, I’ll always miss my father and mother. It is the deepest center of my pain.

Good Lenah (at Wickham)

DFT: Should people still be afraid of you? I mean, you aren’t going to rip my throat out, are you?

No, not presently. You would have been an easy kill, I have to admit. And I liked easy, I wasn’t really the hunting type if you get what I mean, I like my meals delivered.

DFT: Do you have any irrational fears or phobias?

The sun. It will not kill me now, it wouldn’t kill me in my later years as a vampire either though I’m frightened of it’s power. Do you know some vampires await the day the sun burns out? Then they can walk the earth with no fear.

DFT: What do you like the most about the 21st Century?

Music at the touch of a button.

DFT: Do you still believe that a coven is a necessary evil to ensure your survival?

There is nothing more I fear right now than the coven. They did ensure my survival and they will also ensure my death, they are bound to do so. It’s part of the magic that links us together, they must find me on pain of their own deaths.

DFT: How do you feel about killing now? Any rules that you’ve set for yourself?

I have wanted life for so long and it feels so strange to think back on the person I was and on all of the things I did. It’s like looking back on your childhood. You know it was you, you know you learned to walk, learned to read, learned to be a human being but you can’t access that person – you are an adult now. That’s what it feels like. I know I did all of those horrible things and liked it.

DFT: Are you seeking redemption for all of the truly evil things that you’ve done?

I think more than anything else, that is the fabric of my being. I can try to be a good person now, I can try to do the right thing. Hopefully, I can be redeemed.

DFT: What makes you blush?

A certain young man who likes to feel his blood pumping in his veins at ridiculous rates. His name is Justin. I know you would think I would say Rhode but Rhode is dead and at present, I don’t want to talk about him.

DFT: Jared Padalecki or Jensen Ackles?

Padalecki. He would have been a fabulous member of my coven. Though you realize, I spent fifteen minutes researching both of these boys, I don’t have time to watch much television.

DFT: Louboutin or Manolo Blahnik?

Combat boots?

DFT: Eric Northman or Angelus?

Neither. I choose Song, Gavin and Heath. Much more frightening.

DFT: True Blood or a warm neck?

Whose neck?

DFT: Rhode is your soul mate. The love of your lifetime. How do you feel about him sacrificing himself to give you what you wanted? Do you think that it’s the least that he could do for you because he took your humanity?

The fact that Rhode succeeded in bringing back my humanity is a feat in itself. You have to really want the other vampire to live and that’s an emotion which is nearly impossible for the average vampire. Rhode was never average. Rhode was always so much more.


DFT: How do you feel about abandoning Rhode and your coven?

Abandon? Rhode sacrificed himself leaving me behind. As for my coven, I had to leave them behind. It was selfish, yes but as a vampire that was my way. It is the way of all of those who have lived on Earth entirely too long.

DFT: How do you really feel about Vicken? He’s made many sacrifices for you, yet you shunned him. Did you ever really love him?

Yes. I loved him in my own limited way. It was flawed, I admit but you can’t fake the vampire love. It is real and when you fall in love, you are bound. I didn’t shun him, not really. I did what I had to do and unfortunately, I left him behind. This is not something I enjoy admitting.


DFT: What would you change about yourself if you could?

I would put others before myself. I don’t do that often enough.

DFT: Perhaps the most important question of all, do you know what it means to be loved by death?

I was death. I was the incarnation of death and I loved no one but myself… it is loving life that has set me free.

DFT: Many thanks, Lenah.  I appreciate you taking the time to speak with me.

    I love the idea of a Vampire wanting to be human and actually succeeding it! Talk about reversing the roles now that she is the one hunted!

    I think Lenah is very interesting and I too think the ideas of vampires waiting for the sun to burn out is intriguing…except there would be no light and it would be pretty cold, and everything would be dead–so where would the blood come from? Anyway, I thought of a better idea for vampires to ponder (but I better not make it public). As far as Lenah’s fabulous men…well, I don’t have much of an opinion about them since guys don’t interest me that much. Nothing personal, some of my best friends are guys.

    She has many fabulous men, but I like that the one she ended up falling for was just a boy..Justin, he had no big secret or special abilities, he just drew her in.

    I THINK THE NEXT BOOK IS GOING TO BE TORMENTING FOR LENAH. SHE WILL CHOOSE RHODE – BECAUSE HE IS NOT THERE PINING FOR HER AND HE WAS HER FIRST LOVE. THIS IS A GREAT BOOK. MY FAVE LINE IS SHED TEARS.
