Supernatural Smack Down: Jon Skovron’s Jael Thompson (Round 1)

LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE…..

Round 1: Fighting for DFT – Jael Thompson

Jael Thompson vs. Harshika

Remember to check out Parajunkee’s View site and choose wisely…tweet #SuperSmack

Name: Jael Thompson

Book Series: Misfit

Job: Student/Demon Hunter

Height: 5’6″

Weight: 125 lbs.

Hair Color: Black

Eye Color: Green

From (Location): Technically speaking, born in Siberia.

Significant Other: Rob McKinley

Signature Move: Fireball to the face!

Kill Highlights: Never killed anyone. Never plan to. But I have banished demons back to Hell and helped a sociopath discover his inner guilt.

Enemies: Belial, Grand Duke of Hell. And pretty much the rest of Hell, too.

Favorite Pastime: I’ve been meaning to get one of those…

Other Facts: I also have…um…succubus powers, but I try not to use those because it’s kinda creepy.

Jael Thompson, Demon Girl

Hey, I’m Jael. I’m not really into contests or anything, but my uncle told me to sign up for this. Don’t judge. You’d do what your uncle said if he was a seven foot fish monster, too. Anyway, he said this would help teach me “the joy of competitive spirit!” Or something.

So, yeah…I’m a bad ass, I guess. My mom was a demon and my dad was a human (also a priest, exorcist, and mage). Having a half-human half-demon baby breaks just about all the rules and Belial, one of the Grand Dukes of Hell, came after us as soon as I was born. My dad and I escaped, but he killed my mom. Now he wants to kill me. We’ll see about that.

For a long time, I didn’t know what I was capable of. Mostly because my dad kept it secret from me. He thought I wasn’t mature enough to handle it. But now my uncle Dagon (the fish monster uncle) is teaching me how to influence the elements so they’ll help me out. My favorite is fire. All I need to do is get a little angry or upset and bam, fiery inferno. Good for throwing, too. I can also get liquids to freeze, wind to reach tornado level force, and when I’m really in a tight spot, sometimes I can get the earth to turn to lava or split open and swallow someone. I’m also impervious to things like guns and blades. Only silver will break my skin. If you hit me hard enough, I’ll feel it. But you better put me out of commission with that first punch because you don’t want me to hit back. I can put my fist through a brick wall.

I’m not sure why I’m doing this. Like I said, my uncle told me I should. He’s pretty cool. And I don’t know…I guess I want to make him proud. Also, something like this might finally convince my dad that I can actually handle some responsibility. Maybe it’ll also make all those demons out there think twice before they take a shot at me.

About Jon:

Jon Skovron has never really fit in, and has no plans to start now. After twelve years of Catholic school, he went on to study acting at a conservatory program for four years before returning to his first love, writing. His second novel, Misfit, was recently published in August 2011 by Abrams Books. Bestselling author Holly Black called it “A diabolically delightful paranormal” and Kirkus (starred review) called it, “Thoughtful, scary and captivating.”

His first novel, Struts & Frets, also from Abrams, was published in 2009. Washington Post Book world said, “Skovron perfectly captures that passion—sometimes fierce, sometimes shy—that drives so many young artists to take the raw stuff of life and transform it into something beautiful.” Bestselling author Cory Doctorow said, “Struts & Frets will feel instantly authentic to anyone who’s ever felt the pride and shame of being an outsider”.

Jon was born in Columbus, Ohio. He’s lived a lot of places, including New York, Seattle, and Pittsburgh. He and his two sons currently reside just outside Washington, DC.

You can visit Jon around the web here: Website | Blog | Twitter | Facebook

This giveaway is provided by Dark Faerie Tales

Two winners will each receive a copy of Misfit by Jon Skovron

Available on August 1, 2011 from Amulet Books

About the Book:

Jael has always felt like a freak. She’s never kissed a boy, she never knew her mom, and her dad’s always been superstrict—but that’s probably because her mom was a demon, which makes Jael half demon and most definitely not a normal sophomore girl. On her sixteenth birthday, a mysterious present unlocks her family’s dangerous history and Jael’s untapped potential. What was merely an embarrassing secret before becomes a terrifying reality. Jael must learn to master her demon side in order to take on a vindictive Duke of Hell while also dealing with a twisted priest, best-friend drama, and a spacey blond skater boy who may have hidden depths.

Author Jon Skovron takes on the dark side of human nature with his signature funny, heartfelt prose.

    Skovron is a new to me author – and discovering new authors is one of the benefits of blog events like this one.

    His Jael sounds like a very appealing character, and I’m looking forward to reading about her. Her and her seven foot fish monster uncle…

    Hate to say this but, I don’t think Jael stands a chance against Harshika. From what I read she’s a bit, um, intense.
