Deadly Destinations: Sylvia’s Day Renegade Angel’s Interview

**Visit All Things Urban Fantasy today for her Deadly Destination tour with Brigid Kemmerer & enter for a chance to win a copy of Spark**

Deadly Destinations concludes today with Sylvia Day and an interview about her Renegade Angels series. A Hunger So Wild, the second book in the series, was released in July. A huge thanks to Penguin for today’s giveaway! One lucky winner will receive a copy of A Hunger So Wild.

_________________________________________________________________________________

DFT: Could you start things off by telling us a little about A Hunger So Wild and the main characters?

Sylvia: HUNGER  picks up immediately after A TOUCH OF CRIMSON ends. CRIMSON followed the story of Adrian, leader of the angels.  HUNGER follows the story of Elijah, leader of the lycans. Fresh from a revolt that won the lycans their freedom from servitude to the angels, Elijah steps into command as the first Alpha. He’s quickly approached by Vashti, second in command of the vampires, with the offer of an alliance against the angels. Among the many problems with that proposal is that Vashti is responsible for the torture and death of Elijah’s first Beta and lycans are responsible for the torture killing of Vashti’s mate. To say El and Vash have a lot to get over before they can work together (and fall in love!) is an understatement.

DFT: Do you have a favorite scene or line in A Hunger So Wild?

Sylvia: Elijah takes off for Shreveport. When Vashti tracks him down, their confrontation really crystallizes things for their relationship.

DFT: Could you please explain the supernatural world of the Renegade Angels series.

Sylvia: The Renegade Angels series focuses on one tier of the angelic hierarchy–the Seraphim–and two particular branches of the seraphim–the Watchers and the Sentinels. Following the Biblical story of the Watcher angels, 200 seraphim were sent to earth to observe man and ended up mating with women instead. The Sentinel angels were sent to punish the Watchers and the result is that the Watcher angels became the Fallen and were divided into two groups–vampires and lycans. It’s an uneasy balance between the three factions, and their looming war is what the series follows.

DFT: Who has been your favorite character to write in the Renegade Angels series and why?

Sylvia: Elijah, because he’s so admirable. He’s strong and sexy and gorgeous, which is wonderful, but it’s his loyalty, sense of fairness, and his undisguised regal nature that make him so memorable and easy to love.

DFT: If you lived in the Renegade Angels world, which paranormal creature would you want to be and why?

Sylvia: A Sentinel. To be able to fly, plus be weaponized like they are… Awesome! Not to mention they’re all gorgeous. ;-)

DFT: Do you have a long term plan or goal for this story universe?

Sylvia: The Renegade Angels and my Marked series are both set in my Dominion fictional universe. Honestly, it’s a MASSIVE world, encompassing all tiers of the angelic hierarchy. Eventually, I’d like to get all those stories told.

DFT: When writing paranormal romance, how do you maintain a story arc though the course of a series while still delivering a conflict and resolution in each book?

Sylvia: For me, a story is about the characters. As long as I resolve the main emotional conflicts established in that particular book and end with them in a happy place, I consider the story complete. The rest can be threaded through former and future books, although the overall story arc must make a firm step forward. Some questions must be answered and some threads resolved, even if you leave threads dangling and introduce new ones. So I guess the answer is: delivering an equal balance of resolution and continuing intrigue.

DFT: Which genre do you prefer to read? Do you have any favorite authors or series?

Sylvia: Erotic romance. Favorite authors–Shelby Reed, Nalini Singh, J.D. Robb, Lisa Kleypas, Patricia Briggs

DFT: What can you tell us about any other projects you are working on?

Sylvia: I’m presently consumed by my Crossfire series, which is a contemporary romance series following one couple–Eva Tramell and Gideon Cross.

DFT: I want to thank you for taking the time to answer these questions.

Sylvia: Thank you for having me! :-)

About this Book:

Sylvia Day draws us back into the shadows of a seductive underworld where lycans, vampires and angels vie for supremacy…

Elijah Reynolds is the most dominant of lycans, a rare Alpha whose skill on the hunt is surpassed only by his primal sexuality. When the lycans revolt due to the iron fist of angelic rule, he steps into command, becoming both enemy and coveted ally in the conflict between vampires and angels.

Vashti is the second most powerful vampire in the world, a lethal beauty with a path of devastation in her wake. Tasked with proposing an alliance between vampires and the lycans who killed her mate, Vash approaches Elijah, whose need to avenge a friend demands Vash’s death even as his passion demands her surrender.

Soon, their enmity erodes beneath an all-consuming desire. Elijah has never encountered a woman whose warrior spirit and fierce sexual appetite rivals his own, while Vash is faced with the one man strong enough to be her equal. But as war looms, each must decide where their loyalty lies–with their own kind or with the enemy lover they can no longer live without.
