Boone Brux blog tour stop and contest
Today we are part of the Boone Brux blog tour to celebrate the release of Shield of Fire from Entangled Publishing. I also have one ecopy of Shield of Fire to send out to one lucky reader. In part of today's interview Icarus plays a little word association game so I thought it might be fun to play a version of that in the comments. Tell me the first word that pops into your head when you see the cover of this book and I will toss your name into that hat for your chance to win. It's that easy. What word do I think of? Rough. Think what you will *wink*
Now, let's welcome Boone and Icarus...
Demon Bane army, Icarus. Welcome.
Icarus: I’d say it’s a pleasure, Boone…but it’s not.
Boone: Well, I appreciate you taking time out of your busy soul-sucking schedule to be
here. So let’s jump right in. Is it safe to say you have the hots for Ravyn?
Icarus: Safe? Nothing with me is ever safe. I don’t have the hots, as you say, for Ravyn.
I need her. (Interviewer wiggles eyebrows.) Her powers, not her affection.
Boone: Riiiight, her powers. Your dad, the Demon King, seems very determined to have
Ravyn as well. Isn’t he irritated by your insubordination? I mean, he doesn’t come across
as the forgiving type.
Icarus: Actually, I hadn’t informed him of my plans to usurp the throne. You must admit
that I’d be a much better king than he is.
Boone: If by better you mean more ruthless, then yeah, you da man. Particularly loved
the way you drained that poor girl of her soul in chapter one.
Icarus: I thought I was rather gentle.
Boone: Uhh, no.
Icarus: It’s your fault I am the way I am. You created me.
Boone: Did not. You walked fully formed onto the page. I tried to make you ugly and
deformed, but you refused, insisting on gold rings in your hair and a chiseled bone
structure. Right away I knew you were a prima donna.
Icarus: I’m unfamiliar with this term. No matter. Next question.
Boone: What’s up with you and that she-demon, Sha-hera? She’s a nasty piece of work.
Icarus: Finally, something we agree on. If it takes the rest of my life, I will find a way to
kill that bitch.
Boone: I think she has the hots for you. (Silence and icy stare ensues) Are you snarling at
Icarus: Be thankful that’s all I’m doing. Next subject.
Boone: Fine, let’s do a brief word association game. I’ll say a word and you say the first
thing that pops into your head, okay? (crickets chirping) I’m going to take your silence as
a yes. First word—puppies.
Icarus: (Bares fangs in place of answer)
Boone: I see a pattern emerging here. Well, thank you for being with us today, Icarus. I
know it’s difficult to get away when you’re in the thick of battling for world domination.
Icarus: Yes it is. You should be very grateful.
Boone: Until next time, this is Boone Brux and Icarus, wishing you a happy holiday.
Icarus: I wish no such thing.
Boone: Shut-up, demon spawn.
Protecting humans is the Bringers’ duty. Sending demons to the Shadow World is their pleasure.
In one night, Ravyn’s life plunges from barely tolerable to deadly. Forced to flee the only home she’s known, she stumbles headlong into the clutches of Icarus, a powerful demon intent on stealing her powers. Unfortunately for him, she has no intention of cooperating.
When Rhys realizes the woman he’s rescued from the Bane Demon is no mere human, his obligation as a Bringer dictates he protect and train her in the ways of his people. But he’s unprepared for the intense desire he feels for the fiery Ravyn. To surrender to his need may mean her death.
As the Demon King’s desire for ultimate power escalates, fathers are slated against sons, and foes are made allies. The Bane threat upon them, Rhys and Ravyn must quest to unite the last of the Bringers—and explore a passion too powerful to ignore.
